Chobani Review + Giveaway!
April 12, 2011 § 104 Comments
By now, I’m sure you have realized that I love food.
[If you haven't read my About Me page. That should clear things up.]
What you might not know is that I am also quite a health freak. A health freak that believes in daily indulgences, enjoys eating good, quality food, and has a huge sweet tooth. Two years ago, when I really started getting interested in healthy eating, I was introduced to Chobani greek yogurt. It was love at first sight.
A healthy snack filled with protein? Yes, please!
A post-workout snack that tastes like dessert? Double yes, please!!!
A month ago, I started seeing other bloggers raving about the new Chobani flavors: Lemon, Black Cherry, and Mango. My mouth started to water. I needed to try them! The very next day I went to the store in search of one thing and one thing only: Chobani greek yogurt. After much searching, I came to the unfortunate conclusion that they did not carry the new flavors. I left empty-handed…
Who am I kidding? I could never leave a grocery, or any store for that matter, empty-handed. I picked up a few of my favorites, strawberry and pineapple Chobani, before heading over to the nut butter aisle to pick up a few jars of peanut butter.
Anyways, when I got home I notified the people at Chobani of my dilemma and they offered to send me samples of the new flavors free of charge! When I mentioned that I have a blog and would do a product review for them in exchange for the samples, the deal got even sweeter. They offered to send 10 of my readers coupons for a free 6 ounce container of their delicious greek yogurt!
But, before I get to that, I’d like to share the product review.
Lemon: In all honesty, I wasn’t expecting to like the Lemon flavor much because I’m not a fan of citrus. When I took the first bite, I was expecting a sour, tart flavor. However, much to my surprise, it was not sour or tart at all! It was sweet, creamy, and delicious! I loved it! Chobani achieved the perfect balance of sweetness and just a little bit of sour. Perfect!
Black Cherry: This was another delicious one! It was creamy and decadent. I felt like I was eating dessert! The only minus for this one was the fact that it was a little too sweet, even for me. But, other than that, I loved it!
Mango: The Mango flavor was my favorite of the three. Chobani yogurts are creamy to begin with, but I’ve noticed the ones with 2% fat are 10x creamier! The container had a plentiful amount of mango chunks and was sweet without being overly sweet. Yum!
Overall: I can’t even begin to describe how impressed I am with the new Chobani flavors! They are all fabulous and I would gladly eat them again and again and again! In addition to an amazing flavor, they also provide excellent nutrition. All Chobani yogurts are high in protein, low in fat, and have the perfect ratio of carbs and protein for a post-workout snack.
Overall Grade: A+
Are you sure you want the free coupons? ’Cuz I really want to hoard them all to myself so I can eat more and more of this yogurt.
Oh, you do want them? If you insist…
