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! 🙂
Last week I got a little surprise at my doorstep.
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.
I’m sure that you have seen the new flavors around the ‘blog world’ or at your local grocery store.
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.
The first one that I tried was blood orange:
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.
The next flavor that I tried out was the passion fruit.
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)
And last but not least is the apple cinnamon flavor, which seems to have taken the blog world by storm!
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!
