Good Morning! Welcome to another Monday. I know, Mondays kind of suck. Not even ‘kind of,’ they really suck. BUT the good thing is that I think I have a way of cheering you right up this Monday morning! :)
I had completely forgotten that Chobani had contacted me about trying their new flavors! When I walked up to my door & saw this package I think I may of let out a little squeal of excitement.
I’m sure that most of you know my love of Greek Yogurt, particularly Chobani. I mean my old blog was called ‘Greek Yogurt & Apple Slices. ‘ I love the stuff! I eat at least one container of the yogurt a day. Needless to say, I FLY through my Chobani stash. I even have a special place in my fridge just for my Greek yogurt. ;)
I’m usually the only one eating it, but now Craig has even started eating it on occasion. At first I think he thought I was just a crazy person, with as much as I eat it. But then he tried one of them (I think it was blueberry) & he commented on how good it was.
I think people’s initial reaction when they first try it is how thick it is. Most people are used to thin yogurt, like Dannon or Yoplait. I used to eat that yogurt everyday too…until I found Greek yogurt. Now I much prefer thick yogurt. Some people take a few tries before adjusting to the thickness of it.
Now I’m not going to lie & say that I haven’t tried these flavors yet. The minute I knew Chobani had new flavors that were going to be coming out, I went on the hunt for them.
This flavor is the perfect combination of sweet & tangy. After the first bite it leaves a little bit of ‘tang’ in your mouth, kind of like sour patch kids…but not quite as ‘tangy.’ The flavor is delicious! I don’t know why, but this flavor reminds me of summer. It is the perfect treat, I think it will especially be in the summer time.
This flavor is a 2% flavor, which just means that it is a bit thicker. (there are also 3g of fat & 20 more calories than the 0% flavors) Out of the three new flavors, I think this one is my favorite. The flavor is PERFECT! I wasn’t even sure that there really was such a fruit as passion fruit, (I thought it was just a flavor) but now I’m on a mission to find one since I LOVE the flavor of this yogurt! The other thing that I like is that there are little passion fruit seeds in the yogurt. I know some people actually don’t care for the seeds in it, but I’m a fan! I like a little texture added to my food. (probably explains my loves of chia & flax seeds)
I have to admit, I’m totally on this apple cinnamon band wagon. :) This stuff is just TOO good! I love that there are actual CHUNKS of apple in this flavor, not just flavoring, like other apple cinnamon yogurt that I have had. I think this will be my favorite flavor to bake with, because of the extra cinnamon-y flavor!
Now it’s YOUR chance to try these flavors!! All of you have to do is leave me a comment telling me your favorite Chobani flavor (it doesn’t have to be one of these three flavors) OR if you have never tried Chobani (you are DEFINITELY MISSING OUT!! ;) ) which flavor you would like to try most. (if you aren’t sure of all of the flavors- check out their website here!)
The giveaway will end THIS Friday at midnight- February 24th! (winner will be chosen via random.org) I will announce the winner the next time I post after Friday. Thanks to Chobani for hosting this giveaway!
Good luck!! & I hope this Monday is not too bad afterall!
