First taste of Yokurt

Filed under: Current Posting — wingsofthetern @ 5:21 pm

While I had always heard of Yokurt, by the early 70’s I had never tried any.  While on assignment at one of the Alaska Pipeline construction camps I finally tried some.  I was sitting in the lounge area and noticed some of the other workers were getting these little cups out of a cooler.  All sorts of goodies were available for the workers anytime they wanted them and without cost.  It looked good so I went over and grabbed a little cup for myself.  I opened it up and took a bite.  Yuk!  It didn’t taste very good to me, so I tossed it in the trash can and went back to my book.  Pretty soon, another man retrieved a cup and sat down next to me.  I noticed that he first stirred the cup with a spoon and the contents gained some color.

So – I tried it again, this time stirring the creamy mixture.  I discovered that the fruit was in the bottom of the cup and once stirred together, it tasted real good.

I have loved Yokurt ever since!
