If you’re a regular Lilveggiepatch reader, you know how much I love my yogurt. I eat it pretty much every day, and when I can afford it, I go Greek.
It has only been five days, and I’m already down to my last three. My name is Katie, and I am addicted to Greek yogurt. I had a lot of fun eating my way through the case, and even more fun preparing this comprehensive flavor break- down for ya.
Pineapple is rich and creamy, and feels like a decadent dessert. It reminds me of a tropical mouse my family and I used to eat at our favorite hotel restaurant in Guadeloupe, a small island in the French West indies. This yogurt is not fat-free (each 6 oz container contains 2.5 grams of fat, 2 of which are saturated) but it is a worthy alternative to a “real” dessert, mid-day treat, or a fun breakfast. I licked the container clean 😀
Peach is creamy, with lots of peach chunks. It’s not as rich as the pineapple flavor; the difference between low-fat and non-fat seems pretty big. It tasted a little more like regular yogurt and less like “Greek”, but it’s still good.
Blueberry reminded me a bit of Dannon’s “Fruit-on-the-Bottom” yogurt (which I used to eat all the time when I was wee!). The part of the container that did not have fruit mixed in tasted a lot more like rich, creamy Greek yogurt.
Strawberry is good, but also reminds me of “Fruit-on-the-Bottom.” It didn’t taste quite so “Greek,” but I loved the strawberry chunks.
You can really taste the Vanilla here! The ingredient list says “vanilla flavor“, so I don’t know if they use pure vanilla extract, but it really tastes like alcohol! It’s not too sweet, and mixes nicely with fruit and muffins. It is also much richer and silkier than the fruit flavors.
The Plain yogurt has a true “Greek” taste. It is incredibly rich and creamy, without being overly sour or tangy.
Bottom line: Would I buy these? The Pineapple seriously tastes like heaven on earth. I have one left, and after that’s gone I’m going straight to the store. I don’t buy low-fat yogurt ever (I always get fat-free), so that’s saying a lot. In terms of the other fruit flavors, I tend to prefer to mix my own fruit in, and I think some of the “Greek” taste is lost when the fruit is stirred in during packaging. But, as of late, I’ve had to eat a lot on-the-go, and for a busy lady like myself, a quick, nutritious and tasty snack would be highly convenient. The Plain flavor is also really rich and delicious, and I would certainly buy it in the store.
Thanks again for your generosity, Chobani!
FYI for New York City folk: Chobani is on sale at Gourmet Garage for 2/$3.
Edited to add: the “right” way to eat “fruit-on-the-bottom” Chobani! Makes a HUGE difference, trust me.
