So, you all know I love yogurt. A lot. I recently got addicted to Chobani Greek yogurt when I found it at Costco for half the price of any brand of Greek yogurt in regular stores. I love Greek yogurt because it is basically a protein bomb–it’s so much more filling than regular yogurt and has a nice thick consistency.
The folks at Chobani were kind enough sent me a pack of their yogurt to try the flavors I can’t get at Costco! (If you’re wondering how they ship yogurt cross country, like I was, never fear. It came in a styrofoam cooler with lots of cold packs and was still chilly when I got it!) I took lots of pretty pictures of the rainbow of yogurt they sent me, but unfortunately they’re on my computer that’s being repaired right now. So, here’s what’s left:
I’ve eaten 5/9 of it already…and I predict the rest of it will be demolished this week!
The cooler came stocked with the following flavors:
- 0% Plain
- 2% Plain
Naturally, the first one I tore into was the Pineapple. I’ve already tried the strawberry, blueberry, and peach, and pineapple is seriously my favorite fruit ever. I was way excited for this one and it didn’t disappoint! Nice chunks of pineapple, and this flavor is 2% rather than 0% so the extra fat makes it nice and creamy.
The next day I tried Pomegranate. Also delicious–I’d never had anything pom-flavored before. The arils were nice and crunchy which was different. I’ve had the Strawberry before and it’s also awesome.
There was an unexpected star to this package, though, that took me completely by surprise–the Vanilla! I love vanilla yogurt, but usually it’s a wee bit fakey tasting or overly sweet. This vanilla was thick and creamy and tasted like French Vanilla ice cream. The open, finished container sitting on my desk was kind of like a room fragrancer–I didn’t want to throw it away! (And yes, yogurt containers smell funky, usually, which is why I found this so weird yet awesome.)
Since I’ve heard so much about using Greek yogurt as a substitute for sour cream, but I don’t like sour cream, I made Tim try a dollop of 2% Plain on his chili earlier this week. He gave it an emphatic thumbs up! According to him, it tastes just like sour cream and could detect no difference.
