What: Gourmet yoghurt brand, The Collective have revived a classic pud with the release of its new limited edition yogurt – an alcoholic Morello Cherry & Kirsch variety, inspired by the iconic Black Forest Gateau.
The Lowdown: The new limited edition snack has been produced by pairing The Collective’s award-winning yoghurt with a double layer of liquor-laced conserve. The Morello cherries give this compote a tartness and vividly fresh fruitiness, which pairs perfectly with Kirsch, producing a deep, rich and distinctive sweet-sour flavour.
