Review and Giveaway: Yoplait Greek Yogurt

Recently I had the opportunity to review two flavors of the new Yoplait Greek yogurt.  I had seen all the coupons for this new product, and I was anxious to try it.  I don't think I've actually ever tasted Greek yogurt before.

"With 12 grams of protein -- twice that found in leading yogurts-- new Yoplait Greek nourishes from the inside out. Available in four delicious flavors, Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla and Plain, the brand´s newest offering has a unique thick and creamy texture with the unmatched taste expected of Yoplait."

I sampled the Honey Vanilla flavor, and I gave the Blueberry flavor to my husband at work.  I could immediately tell that the yogurt was thicker and creamier than regular yogurt.  It  also didn't have the water on the top that regular yogurt tends to have before you mix it.  I thought the taste was delicious.  It was significantly less sweet that a typical flavored yogurt, which I liked.  It also had a bit of a bite that is hard to explain - perhaps a bit of a sour taste, like sour cream, which was not unpleasant.  My husband didn't like his yogurt quite as much; he prefers to stick with his traditional fruit-on-the-bottom favorites.  However, he agreed that the Greek yogurt had a more "natural" taste than regular yogurt.

If you're interested in trying Yoplait Greek Yogurt right away, you can print a $.30/1 coupon here.

To celebrate its new Greek yogurt and to encourage women to nourish their inner goddess, Yoplait has teamed up with actress Izabella Miko, who plays Greek Goddess Athena in the epic adventure new Warner Bros. Pictures´ and Legendary Pictures´ film "Clash of the Titans," in theatres April 2 in 3D.

  4. Would love to try the plain flavor -- I know it sounds boring, but I love getting plain yogurt and mixing my own toppings (e.g., frozen fruit).
