  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    The mango and the strawberry sqeezy kefir pouches.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    They were really tasty, yoghurt drink light but lighter in texture. The kids loved the strawberry one.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    The mango was too sweet for our kids, didn’t like that flavour at all.
    Pouches - our 7 and 9 year old are at the age where they can snack on a variety of products and I don’t think punches are necessary for their age grp. I’d prefer recyclable containers.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    Felt like a healthier option to give the children and they were tasty and filling for the packet size.

1.Squeezy in strawberry cheesecake and vanilla cheesecake.
2. The kids liked the strawberry one and I liked the low sugar in them.
3. Children not keen on the vanilla - too bland I think. Also packaging in the shop was a bit messy.
4. Mainly for adults due to the low sugar.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    Snack in Vanilla Cheesecake and squeezy drink in strawberry cheesecake.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    I like that the products were portable making them good for on the go snacking. The children were interested in each flavour as they contained the word cake!

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    After the initial taste which all of the children enjoyed, they found once they were about 1/4 of the way through the product the taste wasn't as good as they had first thought. I think they would have enjoyed the snack product more had I popped it in the freezer first.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    Even though my children didn't particularly enjoy them I would recommend for others to give them a try. Price wise they on are a par with other similar snacks so worth trying for the benefits.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    The strawberry squeeze tube and strawberry slurpy drink.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    Really liked the slurpy drink great packaging and was easy for them to open (almost 4 and almost 5 year olds.) Was like a yogurt drink.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    The strawberry cheesecake snack thing they both didn't like at all wasn't sweet enough and was weird and yuk apparently.
    I wasnt a fan of the tube seemed really messy.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    Would recommend the slurpy drinks but not the quark snacks.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    My dc are 2, 4 and 8, we tried the Kefir Quark Squeezy tubes in Strawberry Cheesecake and Vanilla Cheesecake


  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    My oldest and youngest DC didn't like the products at all, but my 4 years old loved them, she said the strawberry cheesecake was her favourite.

    she liked the packaging, easy to open and easy to eat and it sounded like a treat to her.


  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    My oldest and youngest DC thought they were not sugary enough and the texture too thick.

    my 4 years old loved everything about them.

    I wish they would come in a multi pack rather than having the buy single ones.


  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    I probably would if someone I knew was asking for advise on healthier snacks.

  1. We tried the kefir strawberry slurpy drink
  2. One of my children really enjoyed it being able to slurp it as he struggles to eat yoghurt with a spoon. Would also be good for on the go.
  3. The product packaging cannot be recycled in our area and also rather expensive compared to the yoghurts I currently buy for my children.
  4. They are healthy and made with natural flavours

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    We tried the strawberry pouch as it was the only one we could find in the shops near us.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?


    The kids loved the taste and said they much prefer it to the type of yogurt pouches I usually buy. I loved that it had no added such much unlike the type I usually buy.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    I noticed the price when I picked them up and think they are very expensive.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    I would recommend the product as a healthy alternative to the yogurt pouches usually purchased for children.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    Mango Slurpy and Strawberry Cheesecake Squeezy.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried? I liked that there was no added sugar and made with live cultures. They taste like they are made with natural ingredients.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    Allthough my child said that both products weren't sweet enough, he happily finished them both so not really a negative.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it? I froze the Squeezy and my child enjoyed eating it as an ice-lolly. I think that either product would be great for lunchboxes.

Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
The strawberry and mango slurpy drinks

2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
My 4 year old liked them and said he'd have them again. I tried the strawberry one and thought it was fine. Not too sweet and similar to other yoghurt pouch products

3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
Totally not the fault of the product but as my child was eating the mango one I spotted the use by day expired 2 weeks ago (and a week and a half before I bought it) I had to snatch it out if his hands and bin it. Shocked that Sainsbury's sold a product so out of date!

No real dislikes other than the price really. I usually buy a 4 pack of yoghurt pouches for £1

4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
Yes, nothing wrong with the product and were tasty enough but prefer if they came in a multipack for a better price.

breadwidow · 21/02/2020 20:41

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    We tried them all (bought extra due to pester power)

    So we tried the Kids Kefir Slurpy pouches in Strawberry and Mango flavours and Kids Kefir Quark Squeezy tubes in Strawberry Cheesecake and Vanilla Cheesecake.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    The kids liked the slurpy pouches in both flavours, with the mango 🥭 particularly favoured

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    I was not keen on the amount of plastic on the pouches.

    The kids weren't keen on the quark Squeezy tubes. They found them hard to eat and weren't keen on the taste. They threw them out half eaten, for both flavours. I think maybe they weren't sweet enough. I tried a bit of the strawberry and it was ok but not sweet. Also the packaging didn't really suite the product, a regular tub would have been better.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    Overall no. I really like the regular kefir yoghurt and was disappointed with these which were expensive for what they are. The kids like the regular yoghurt as well so if I can get them to eat kefir anyway

Adoptthisdogornot · 21/02/2020 20:54

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    The mango slurpy drink and strawberry cheesecake snack

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    They were filling and delicious. We all loved the mango drink especially.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    They're a bit pricey for me to buy regularly, especially for 3 kids. I'm not sure about the packaging either, not sure how easy it is to recycle, and the snack tube was too thick.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    Tasted good, and I like that the product encourages good gut health.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    We tried the strawberry cheesecake squeezy snack and the mango slurpy drink.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    Both were very flavoursome and my toddler wolfed them both down. I like that they are both healthy snacks and sugar free.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    My daughter was quite suspicious of the texture of the squeezy snack and took some persuading to try it.
    I found it difficult to get hold of these products and it took a few visits to a couple of supermarkets in my local area before we managed to find them in stock.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    I would recommend these products for the flavours and health benefits.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?

    We tried the slurpy drink in strawberry flavour and the vanilla cheesecake squeezy snack.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    My son loved both products. It was sweet enough and strawberry flavour wasn't overpowering.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    I did not like the packaging of the squeeze snack. The tube became soggy and it was difficult to squeeze out so we needed spoon to finish eating it. And it is to expensive for very small snack.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    Would recomend because it is very healthy snack with minimum sugar.

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    We tried the Biotiful Kefir Slurpy drink in Strawberry flavour as it was the only one available near us. Even then, I had to go into town to M&S. Hopefully, the brand will grow and be more widely available.

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    We buy kefir anyway and add to milkshakes, scones etc so like the health benefits of kefir on the digestive and immune system. The strawberry flavour was delicious, very subtle, not overly sweet and was similar to yogurt. My children asked for more. They are 12, 10, 7 and 4.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    No dislikes, the product was lovely. We have bought it again since the trial. Would love to try the vanilla flavour when it is available local to us.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    I would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others as it is healthy, delicious, and just the right size for children. I think the price is reasonable and affordable.

    Thank you for the opportunity to try this product!

    We tried the Mango and Strawberry Kefir slurpy drinks

  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?

    We really enjoyed these. They tasted just like creamy yogurts. The packaging made them easy for little hands to enjoy. i think nurturing gut health is really important so was pleased that my little boy could enjoy a delicious product with health benefits.

  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?

    Nothing. Hopefully they’ll bring out more flavours.

  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?

    I would recommend these because unlike a lot of other Kefir products we’ve tried they didn’t leave a sour taste in your mouth. Great product with no added sugar and health benefits, win win.

Londontodevon · 22/02/2020 12:57

  1. Which Biotiful Dairy product did you and your child test? What flavours did you try?
    We had the slurpy drink in Mango and the squeezy product in Vanilla Cheesecake.
  2. What did you like about the products and flavours that you tried?
    The drinking product was excellent. Really tasty, and similar to things my kids already have so they liked it.
    Personally I liked the squeezy product, nice simple flavour, not artificial tasting, but my kids did not enjoy it!
  3. What did you dislike about the product and flavours that you tried?
    The squeezy thing was weird according to my children! None of the kids liked it, they distrusted that it was neither an ice-cream or a yogurt. They did not like the texture either. I also thought the packaging on this one was lacking. It got soggy and fell apart at the top where you had to squeeze it out. I'm not sure why you'd choose this over a yogurt or similar for a lunchbox.
  4. If you would recommend Biotiful Kids Kefir to others, why would you recommend it?
    I would recommend the slurpy drinking product but not the squeezy one.
