I have to tell you a little story before I begin.
When I met my husband 9 years ago, he swept me away in so many ways!
He was so different from every man I had ever known.
He was hardworking, honest, and the most structured and ritualistic man EVER!
One of the things that strike me the most about him was he Never changed his dessert.
It was and STILL is to this date: an apple and yogurt!
So basically every time I go to the grocery store I have to buy like 20 cause he eats them twice a day!
That is the reason I accepted this Challenge between
Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry vs Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry.
My husband is not a picky yogurt eater, he likes all brands and all flavors and I have to admit we buy
a lot of Yoplait, but I am more of a Greek yogurt fan.
This challenge was going to turn out pretty darn good!
From the outside they look quite the same
And from the nutritional value there are some small differences Like Yoplait having 2g of Sugar more that Chobani, 20% Vitamin D and 4%Vitamin A , and less Sodium (45%) than Chobani (65%)
On the Other hand Chobani had 5g more Calcium that Yoplait, 2g more of Protein, plus 2% Iron, 6% Vitamin C and 5g of Dietary fiber than Yoplait.
Still, at the end of the day, flavor and texture will always be the number one factor for many when choosing a yogurt, especially a Greek yogurt!
Yoplait has more fruit in the cup, turns into a pinkish color when mixed and is clumpy.
Chobani has a more firm texture and is creamier when mixed. Stays whitish.
My husband and I did the blind test on each other and even though we agreed on
some points we totally chose different Yogurts!
My husband loved the sweetness of the Yoplait
I preferred the creaminess of the Chobani
Here is the thing, when I tasted the Yoplait, I didn't get Greek.
I just tasted a yogurt.
When I tasted the Chobani, I felt the acidity immediately, especially since I had just tried the Yoplait,
and the creaminess of it was exactly what a Greek yogurt lover wants.
And that was the deal breaker.
In my opinion when someone wants to buy Greek yogurt,
it means they actually like the less sweet,
the rich and creamy texture that is characteristic of Greek.
I asked 3 more people to try these yogurts and 2 out of 3 loved the sweetness of Yoplait, but preferred the creaminess of the Chobani.
None of the three were Greek yogurt buyers.
In a National Taste test Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry beat Chobani Simply 100 strawberry!
Why don't you come and try the Yoplait Taste Test for yourself!
Summer is just around the corner!!
Which do you think will win the Best Greek Yogurt in this taste-off?
Yogurt has become one of our essentials and has helped me lose my post baby weight fast and helps my hubby stay in shape!
This story was sponsored by Yoplait, but the best yogurt was determined by me.
I want to Thank Yoplait for giving me the opportunity to openly express my honest opinion.
