Review: Yoplait Greek Yogurt


As a member of My Blog Spark, I was asked to test Yoplait’s new Greek yogurt and write a review.

Availability
The yogurt was not available at the two stores where I usually buy groceries (WalMart and a local shop) so I had to make a special trip to Giant Eagle to purchase it.

Price
Giant Eagle had the yogurt priced at $1.19 for a 6 ounce container. I usually buy an 8 ounce container for about 50 cents, so this was significantly more expensive.

Flavors
The yogurt is available in four flavors: Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla, and Plain. This is a much smaller selection of flavors than is available in other brands.

Nutrition
The yogurt container states that it has twice as much protein as other yogurts and 0% fat. The Greek strawberry yogurt has 12 grams of protein and Yoplait Original strawberry yogurt has 5 grams. The Greek yogurt is also much lower in sugar (18 grams compared to 27 grams) and has fewer calories (130 compared to 170). This information is available on the Yoplait website and the Yoplait Greek yogurt website.

Texture
Strawberry The consistency was rather thick, almost custard-like, with no pieces of fruit. The texture was chalk-like and almost gritty, and it left a coated feeling in my mouth.
Honey Vanilla The consistency was the same as the strawberry. The texture was not gritty like the strawberry. It did leave the same coated feeling in my mouth, though not quite as much.

Flavor
Strawberry The strawberry flavor was very mild, and overall it was tart, tangy and not at all sweet.
Honey Vanilla Just the perfect amount of sweetness. It had a very noticeable, but not overpowering, taste of honey and vanilla. The flavor was rich, complex, and satisfying.

Disclaimer: My Blog Spark and Yoplait provided me with coupons for two free containers of Yoplait Greek Yogurt (and a gift package) but the opinions contained in this review are my own.
