Yazoo is a bottled milkshake, produced by Campina and sold in France, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. Over 80 million bottles of yazoo are sold annually.[1]

Contents[edit]

Yazoo is available in four flavours; banana, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.[1] Vanilla was introduced in 2014 as a limited edition flavour. No one knows yet whether the flavour will sell enough bottles to stay as a permanent edition to the family or whether it will disappear. Bottle sizes range from 200 ml, 472 ml, and 1 litre. The smaller bottles usually have transparent straws glued to the side in a plastic wrapper. The larger bottles feature a tearaway tag on the label for easy recycling.

Yazoo is suitable for vegetarians; it is a good source of calcium, protein, B2 and B12. It is low in fat and contains no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives.

Advertising[edit]

Advertisements previously featured a green dinosaur mascot named Dino, similar to Nesquik's Quicky the Rabbit. The new line of bottles have the phrase "Milk shaken up" on the label.
