I’ve been absolutely loving all the new Greek yogurt flavors that are popping up on grocery retailer shelves. Considering Dannon Light & Fit is my favorite Greek yogurt brand I decided to pick up the new Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends Cherry Chocolate Yogurt when I spotted it at Wal-Mart.
Typically chocolate yogurts are not my thing because I have yet to find a yogurt that has justifiably played off the chocolate flavoring. In my experiences it has always ended up with my face in a pucker and the yogurt in the garbage.I opted to try the Cherry Chocolate first because I quite love the original cherry yogurt … and I had a bit of a chocolate covered cherry vision in mind.Trying the yogurt I have to say … it’s not bad. You can definitely pick up the cherry flavor, minus the fruit chunks in the classic cherry yogurt, while you can also taste the chocolate. The two are married together nicely … although I do find this particular flavor made my tongue very dry after eating. It might be due to the flavoring additives – but “cat tongue” aside, it’s a decent flavor.
A serving of yogurt is 80 calories or 2 points plus values.
Have you tried any of the new Dannon yogurt flavors?
This is another one of the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends I purchased and this one is in the Toasted Coconut Vanilla flavor.As I’ve mentioned I enjoy yogurt, but I especially enjoy Greek yogurt because of it’s added protein and filling quality.
The yogurt is thick, but not as thick as a Chobani greek yogurt. Flavor wise it is undoubtedly coconut.It’s quite delicious and I feel it tastes just as you would assume summer tastes like. It’s very refreshing and just really tastes like a summer on a tropical island.You’re supposed to enjoy your food, right?So why not enjoy it and assume you’re laying on a beach in Jamaica? 😉I have to say, out of the banana cream and this one – the toasted coconut vanilla TOTALLY takes the cake (er … spoon?).
The greatest part is the cup is only 2 points plus values.The sad part is I have only been able to find these at Super Walmart locations.
I have become such a huge fan of Greek yogurt. I enjoy regular yogurt, but since Greek yogurt has so much more protein in it, it’s far more satisfying and filling. I’ve learned that not all brands of Greek yogurt are for me – some are too tart, some are too sweet, some flavors are just horrendous for my taste buds and some are too high in points to be comfortable with.
One brand I learned I truly enjoy is Dannon Light & Fit Greek. Typically they’re 2 points plus values, so when I spotted this new line at Walmart I had to pick up one of each flavor that they had available. I tried the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends – Banana Cream flavor and it’s DELICIOUS! I was and am pumped to have found a banana cream flavored greek yogurt that is points plus friendly. There are other brands out there on the market for banana greek yogurt but they’re 3-4 points and sometimes I feel that’s too hefty in points for a yogurt.
The flavor of this yogurt is exactly as it reads – a banana cream flavoring. It’s not overly banana cream, nor is it fake tasting, it’s a nice balance in the middle. It’s filling, tasty and a home run.I’m just sad that the brand is only sold at Walmart (at least for now?) but I hope my local market picks up the brand because it’s too yummy to have to wait to purchase or play “find the yogurt” at Walmart.
