    Courier notified me the goods had been collected for delivery but it took 7 days and a couple of conversations with NZ Post before it was in hand. The delay in delivery wasn't Country Trading's fault but I suggest using a different courier. I used a breadmaker with a yoghurt-making function (no thermometer, so by "feel"), which I've used successfully before using milk and yoghurt with a live culture. I expected a "thick and creamy" consistency similar to Greek yoghurt; it was a bit thicker than my earlier attempts (which were quite runny) but not as thick as Greek. May purchase a thermometer to see if that makes a difference to the result.

    Nice thick and creamy yogurt everytime

    Good consistent results and easy to use. Good fast delivery, even to a rural address.

    Received this order very quickly. Well packaged. Have made my first batch already. It's very convenient to use. Will definitely buy again.


    I can't say because it's been a week since sending and I haven't received it yet. I hope this isn't to the detriment of the yoghurt starter because I'm trying to save money, but this seems to be having the opposite effect.

    Hi there, I'm sorry your order has not arrived. I can see from the tracking that they did attempt to deliver it to you but encountered some problems and requested you to reschedule delivery. Please be assured the Yogurt Starter Culture will be fine at room temperature for several weeks. When you receive it and make some yogurt please consider leaving a review about your experience of the product. Many thanks. Heather

    Just REAL GOOD yogurt. Easy to make - and I don't have any of the "gear", just a food grade plastic container and a hot water cupboard. Eating it every day, use it for anything from a daily sweet treat with honey and nuts or jam to a healthy mayonnaise replacement in salads. Love it.
