the ones in the refridgerated section are fresh, the others are long life i believe? until u open them then u have like 7 days to use it and must keep it in the fridge.

i've been using the long life ones quite happily. i'll try fresh when i do my mega asda shop next week

I think that the ones in tetra-packs are heated at a higher temperature prior to packaging in order to kill more bacteria and allow them to last longer. I don't notice any taste difference if I buy the same brand refrigerated or in tetra pack, so I buy them interchangeably depending on which is cheaper.
