Our Review Factors
What do we look for in RTE shrikhand? Taste, texture, and overall freshness were certain aspects we gauged both Amul Shrikhand flavors across.
Fresh and milky with a prominently pleasing flavor of the star ingredient (mango and kesar) is what we primarily looked for. Balanced sweetness with a noticeable flavor of aromatic spices (if any).
Smooth with a rich, creamy mouthfeel and absence of grittiness- these are the sub parameters we assessed the texture across. Unlike yogurt cups, these are very thick and have no watery layer on top.

Commonly, saffron-flavored products are too intense. Luckily, that was not the case with this Amul Shrikhand. The sweetness and earthy-floral notes of saffron were rounded. The sourness was subtle but noticeable, and overall, this tasted fresh.
As for appearance, this was a shade lighter than Mango, and here, we could see some strands of saffron. Just like the first variant, this was thick, smooth, and creamy. We were delighted to see no greasy or varying textures.
