Official product review: Chobani Blueberry Yogurt
First of all, I just want to give a huge thanks to Tiffany from Chobani for sending me these amazing free samples of yogurt:
I was beyond thrilled because this was the first time I’d received any free samples since I started See Sarah Eat and I’d been drooling over Chobani the past several months from reading other food blogs like those of Kath and Tina.
They arrived at my house on Wednesday and I couldn’t wait to try them, but the past two days had been so busy, I hadn’t really had time, until now…
Since blueberry is my favorite flavor of just about any yogurt, I decided to try that one first. I had this as my mid-morning snack today because I woke up before 7:00, believe it or not. I am such an old person now, haha.
I love the thick consistency of greek-style yogurt and this brand did not disappoint. I loved how it has real fruit on the bottom, I distinctly remember chewing on real blueberries, almost like I had put them in there myself. This brand was also not overly tart like some other greek yogurts I’ve tried before and definitely did not have an aftertaste, a common complaint of mine when eating some of my “light” or “carb-friendly” yogurts.
Nutritionally, this container of yogurt has 140 calories, which is great for a snack. It does contain 19 grams of sugar, but reading the ingredients, I can see that it comes from the milk and fruit — no artificial stuff or HFCS! Plus with 14 grams of protein, I don’t feel bad about ingesting that much sugar, especially if it’s from all natural sources. It also contains the active cultures that any yogurt you eat should have.
Here is a pic of my blueberry yogurt once I stirred it up:
Hopefully the next time I am at my Whole Foods store, I can ask someone (and/or write a letter) how we can get the ball rolling on getting Chobani into our local store!
