When Chobani Flips started popping up on my local grocery store shelves, I in turn started seeing them posted all over social media outlets. I admit, I was intrigued by some of the flavor options but in a way, talked myself out of purchasing right away because in the past I have found Chobani Greek yogurts to be a lot sourer than my taste buds enjoy. I admit, I had found a few flavored Chobani yogurts that I enjoyed, but overtime even those began to make my face pucker.
Just recently while at the store, I spotted the Chobani Flip Key Lime Crumble which is the flavor I initially wanted to try first but couldn’t find. This particular flip is a delicious blend of key lime low-fat yogurt which comes with a side of graham crackers and white chocolate bits. The yogurt itself is mildly sour on its own, but once the graham crackers and white chocolate bits are folded into the yogurt it becomes a deliciously yummy experience. All the flavors blend together perfectly and make for a scrumptious breakfast, snack, or even a dessert. Way to go, Chobani!

After trying the Yoplait Light Greek Strawberry Cheesecake yogurt, I was asked if I had tried the Dannon. I had seen it at Wal-Mart but it was in a 6-pack with a flavor I wasn’t quite sure I’d enjoy so I passed up on it. After I had finished up a lot of my yogurts, I decided to swing by Wal-Mart to get a few groceries I can only get there and picked up the pack.Dannon is one of my favorite light Greek yogurt brands and it’s the one I typically reach for at the super market.
I have to say the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends Strawberry Cheesecake really takes the cake on this flavor. It’s very reminiscent of strawberry cheesecake, it’s nice and thick, and it’s just delicious. I didn’t pick up on any “crust” flavor but the yogurt itself reminds me of a strawberry cheesecake filling. Having this alongside some strawberries is just a delicious snack to rave about. So far I have only seen these sold at Wal-Mart, but I’m sure it’ll be popping up on grocery shelves elsewhere.
I have seen Chobani Flips all over the place, but had yet to give them a try. While on my “try all the new yogurt” kicks I picked up the Chobani Flip Vanilla Golden Crunch. I admit I’ve not been the biggest Chobani fan because the yogurts that I’ve purchased are typically sour, regardless of the flavor or how sweet the fruit is. Over the years I’ve moved away from Chobani, until I purchased this flip.
I opted for the Vanilla Golden Crunch because it was the “safest” of the available options at my store to give a try. Opening the flip up and mixing the crunchy topping into it the first bite was super sour. Face puckering sour. I decided to sprinkle a little bit of artificial sweetener into it and it turned out to be quite good once there was a bit of sweetness to it. It’s undoubtedly vanilla and the crunchy flakes are reminiscent of corn flakes. I enjoyed it and the crunch was different and made it unique. I’ll undoubtedly give some of the other flavors a try to see how the other ones play.

I’ve been taking a walk on the wild side with my new yogurt selections. I’ve got to admit, I’m pretty proud of myself (haha). I tend to try out new yogurts frequently, but I’m hesitant with chocolate or “foreign” yogurt flavors (like some pie or cake flavored yogurts).So when shopping at Target, I spotted and picked up the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends Caramel Macchiato.
Initially I was like “ohhh how is this going to be?” because I’ll be honest, I am a coffee lover but I have yet to introduce coffee into my yogurt. Now, I have had coffee alongside yogurt, but the two have never been married together.Opening and stirring it up, I took my first bite and I wasn’t appalled. Flavor wise it is undoubtedly caramel macchiato. It tastes like a caramel ice coffee … in yogurt form. It doesn’t have that sour yogurt aftertaste that some dessert flavored (i.e. chocolate yogurts) can bring to the table. It really reminds me of coffee ice cream … which makes me feel this would be fabulous blended up into a smoothie.
I am a bit of a yogurt junkie, so when I saw Yoplait released another new flavor I of course had to pick a couple up. I am a fan of the Yoplait Light Apple Turnover yogurt, so I was very excited to see the Yoplait Greek 100 Calories Blended Apple Pie Yogurt.
The yogurts consistency is similar to the other Yoplait Greek yogurts, where it’s thick, yet it’s looser in comparison to other Greek yogurts on the market. Flavor wise it tastes like apple pie, without the crust: its apple and its cinnamon. I was anticipating chunks of apple as there are in the Yoplait Light Apple Turnover, but there weren’t any. I did notice in some bites there were tiny “slivers” of apple pieces, but nothing that was standout noticeable.It is quite comparable to the Apple Turnover yogurt, just thicker and without apple pieces.

While popping into Target the other day I noticed they carried a few “Target exclusive” flavors from Yoplait. I was all excited when I saw the Yoplait Greek 100 Calories Blended Strawberry Cheesecake Bliss Yogurt so I snatched up two containers.I do want to note this isn’t exactly an “only at Target” flavor because I spotted and repurchased these at Wal-Mart a few days later!
The yogurt itself is your classic Yoplait Greek yogurt. It’s moderately thick, sweetened and a pretty tasty snack/meal. Taste wise … it tastes just like a strawberry cheesecake, minus the crust. It’s creamy, it’s sweet and it’s just perfect. I’ve enjoyed it on its own, while I’ve also paired it with some fresh cut up strawberries.

Have you tried any of the new Yoplait Greek launches?
Greek yogurt has undoubtedly become my one and only favorite type of yogurt. That sometimes is quite surprising to me because when I first introduced myself to greek yogurt I was not a fan. Not even by a long shot. But I decided to try a few different flavors and different brands and with that I began to find flavors and brands I preferred more.
So, in my quest to try the various Trader Joe yogurts, I picked up a container of Trader Joe’s Greek Yogurt NonFat Blueberry and I am glad I did. It’s a moderately thick yogurt and it’s not tart, but rather flavorful. The blueberry flavor is prominent, moderately sweet and just a perfect snack/meal. I sometimes find getting a blueberry greek yogurt that isn’t mild in flavor and/or straight up tart can be difficult. Knowing that I enjoy this, makes me happy because it’s a back-up for another blueberry greek yogurt I tend to enjoy.

I’ve been on a Greek yogurt jaunt as of late trying out new flavors. I’m content with the brands I typically purchase at my regular grocery store – but I’m finding I’m really enjoying the Greek yogurts at Trader Joe’s.With that, I decided to pick up the Trader Joe’s Greek Yogurt Nonfat Honey.
I was hoping this yogurt would be along the lines of the Trader Joe’s Nonfat Mango but it was a little thicker than the mango and it was a LOT tarter.Very tart.I could taste the honey flavor, but the tartness of the yogurt made my face pucker. I did add a little artificial sweetener to it to help sweeten it up a bit, but even that couldn’t cut the tartness.It wasn’t bad, I ate it with some strawberries and blueberries, but I probably wouldn’t repurchase it again because I’m not really a fan of tart yogurt.

While shopping at Trader Joe’s, I decided to finally give their Greek yogurt a shot. I have been pretty content with the Greek yogurt I have been purchasing, but it’s nice to shake things up once in a while.So with that I picked up a container of the Trader Joe’s Greek Yogurt Nonfat Mango.
I can be rather picky when it comes to Greek yogurt. Some yogurts I find aren’t thick enough, too tart, not sweet enough, etc. After mixing this one up and tasting it … I have to say, this was pretty much a slam dunk. It was moderately thick, yet not too thick, it was perfectly mango flavored while also offering chunks of mango throughout the yogurt.It was sweet, but not too sweet and that natural tartness of Greek yogurt was there but it wasn’t at the forefront, which I appreciated.The yogurt was thick, creamy and just all around delicious.
A single serving is 3 points plus values. Definitely worth it.
On my last trip through Trader Joe’s it was officially pumpkin season – which meant a lot of my favorite Trader Joe’s items were officially back.One of the things I was very excited to try was the Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Nonfat Greek Yogurt.I have purchased pumpkin yogurt and my initial thought all the time is it would be perfect if thicker … and Trader Joe’s provided just that.
The yogurt itself is very thick like classic greek yogurt.The pumpkin flavor is undeniable, but there is a noticeable tartness from the nonfat yogurt that is also on the forefront.The tartness can be downplayed by adding in a little bit of artificial sweetener or even some honey. I enjoyed my yogurt with a packet of Equal stirred into it, then topped over some strawberries and blueberries and topped off with 1/3 cup of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Granola. It was delicious and very filling.It’s the perfect pumpkin greek yogurt. And I enjoyed it so much I made sure to pick up 2 more containers.
A container houses an 8 ounce serving which is 190 calories, which is equal to 5 points plus values. Sure, it’s high for yogurt, but it’s definitely worth it – plus you’re getting almost double the amount of yogurt you would typically get.
