Product Review: Chobani Greek Yogurt

I’m going to put aside my grilling recipes to plug one of my favorite treats these days: Greek Yogurt.

If you like yogurt at all, you HAVE to give Greek yogurt a try. It’s so much richer, creamier, and more substantial than the watery old yogurt you’re used to. I’ve tried Fage, Trader Joe’s, Stoneybrook Farms, and Dannon’s greek yogurts, and they’re all good, but my favorite is Chobani’s fruit flavored varieties.

I’ve tried the Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry, Strawberry-Banana, and Peach flavors, and they’re all delicious. They’re fruit on the bottom, which I never used to be a fan of, but the fruit actually resembles fruit, unlike the blended yogurts I’d gotten used to. Most of them avoid artificial sweeteners, but also manage to not be loaded with sugar. Have you checked the label on your current yogurt lately? If you aren’t buying fat free or light yogurts, there’s sometimes upwards of 40 grams of sugar in that tiny little carton. There’s only 28 g of sugar in a Snickers bar, by comparison. Just something to think about.

Not to get all “nutrition nutrition nutrition” on you all, but there’s also way more protein in Greek yogurt than regular yogurt–twice as much.

Like I said at the beginning, if you like yogurt–you’ve got to try Greek yogurt. It’s popping up all over the place, and it’s worth the extra few cents.

P.S. I don’t think this needs to be said, but in case you’re wondering, no one is paying me or asking me to talk about any of the brands or products I write about here. I just write about things I love. :)

    So you have sold me but where do I get the pictured kind…your fave. I think I would enjoy it for breakfast most mornings at work with my granola cereal. Please tell me what list to put it on for Dad to buy me.

    There’s also Pomegranite (with actual pomegranite crunchy seeds) and Pineapple. But my all time favorite is Honey (no fruit)… just creamy, thick yogurt and honey (also good with granola mixed in). I discovered Chobani earlier this year too and won’t go back to the other yogurt (ever). BJ’s Wholesale Club where I live sells a 12-pack (Peach, Blueberry, Strawberry varieties) that comes out to less than $1 per cup. Got a cup o’ strawberry packed in my lunch today (had to steal it away from my boyfriend – he’s hooked too).

    @Kim: I get that 12 pack at Costco sometimes; it’s great. I have tried the pineapple since I posted this, and it’s delicious!!
