So here I am spicing up the UK board. Todays topic: who likes Yeo Valley yogurt? Or do the British Bees prefer something different…?
I admit I’m a bit of fan. They did a spoof ad (well kinda) last year and have done another this year. It makes me a little homesick though, I’m from near where it’s filmed.
If you haven’t seen the ad yet you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTrG7mpb61U
I know it’s a bit random, but I’m feeling homesick (partially because my mums just had an operation – nothing serious, but scary all the same)
Hope you’re all well 🙂
Note to mods, this isn’t intended as promotion – just a funny commercial!

@ladyartichoke: Oh, I love Yeo Valley BUT I don’t buy it because the small tubs are pricey and the big tubs are better value but….. I just eat the whole tub! If it is, say, mango or something anyway. If I make a hot curry and I want to mix yoghurt and mint or cucumber or chives, I might buy Yeo Valley natural yoghurt. Or I might just buy the cheapest brand equivalent.
Petit Filous is a classic! As a kid, I mainly loved Muller Corners but I was only allowed the fruit ones, not the chocolatey ones etc..
Where are you from, since you said you’re homesick?

@ladyartichoke: hahaha i love this advert. The first time it came on my telly I was so confused, thinking it was a music video- until they burst out of the barn singing about Yeo Valley! So funny, and the line ‘be a little funky, choose the West Country’ is so funny. I will totally be using it to make fun of my FSIL’s hubby as he is from Bristol (they live somewhere between Bristol and Bath) and he totally has a West Country farmer’s accent! Although, he thinks our Welsh valley’s accents are funnier than his farmer’s accent, damn him lol
My favourite recent advert though has to be the last Cravendale ‘cat’s with thumbs’ advert. As a cat lover (okay crazy cat lady!) I think it’s genius!
Any Uk bees who are also cat lovers should add Bertrum Thumbcat on Facebook, he’s so funny! (although I am aware that he isn’t actually real lol)

@FutureMrsMaher: The cats are very funny. I don’t have the accent but I can do it if needs be :). Thank you for sending your love to my mum!! Really appreciate it 🙂
@VickyAurea: I could eat a whole tub too!! I live in greater London at the moment but am originally from the middle of nowhere between Exeter and Taunton. I miss the dark, the smell of poo (weird I know), and the purest silence. My SO lives under the Heathrow flight path and next to a station. I live next to the M25. No quiet for me.
