The Collective Dairy Spiced Pumpkin Yoghurt

I've been a fan of the Collective Dairy now for years. They make absolutely luxurious yoghurts that really are desserts. They also always do really interesting abduction unique flavours, especially for their limited editions, with decadent flavours like raspberry and amaretto and creme brulee. Last year's festive edition of Christmas pudding was particularly interesting but this Halloween limited edition is something really special.

Pumpkin flavored things are a particular love of mine although bar Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte (one of my favourite autumnal treats) it's not a particularly common flavour yet. I love the sweet and spice combination and at this time of year, I can't think of anything more appropriate for Halloween.

The packaging on this is brilliant and suitably spooky. I love how the usual cow logo has a skeleton theme and the bright orange colour and pumpkin images help gear this to Halloween. Even the plastic sheet under the lid is really cool looking.

Opening it up, the autumnal orange theme continues with the pumpkin compote daintingly swirled through thick, white yoghurt. You can also see little specks of all the spices and it smells utterly divine and fragrant.

The yoghurt is up to the usual Collective standard. It's rich, creamy and luxurious. The cream and fat content gives it a really smooth, indulgent mouthfeel. The pumpkin compote then really elevates this. It's sweet and spicy with the taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. It's absolutely perfect for winter and I'll be stocking up whilst it's around.
