Yogurt is a staple in our household. Everyone in my family likes yogurt (even my kids) so we eat this dairy product almost daily. Within the last year I've noticed that stores have started stocking different brands of Greek yogurt. Curious, I looked for more details online about this new-to-me product and discovered that Greek yogurt in general tends to have a thicker, creamier consistency to it and usually contains a lot more protein than normal yogurt.
Thanks to MyBlogSpark, my family recently had the chance to try out the Yoplait brand of Greek Yogurt. We tried out both the Strawberry and Blueberry flavors. The consistency is thick and creamy and does not contain large fruit chunks. The taste is a little more tangy than normal yogurt and slightly chalky. I liked the Strawberry flavor more than the Blueberry. Neither my daughter or husband particularly liked the Greek blend, but my toddler son ate his entire cup of Greek yogurt right up! While I'm not sure that I'll switch to eating Greek yogurt over my normal yogurt, I especially like that, according to the label, it contains 2x the amount of protein of the leading yogurt. I'll probably pick a few more containers up from the store again if I need a filling snack or protein-filled mealtime side dish.
Yoplait Greek Yogurt comes in four different flavors: Strawberry, Blueberry, Plain and Honey Vanilla. Each Yoplait Greek serving contains 100-130 calories depending on the flavor and 0% fat.
