Chobani Greek Yogurt Product Review & Giveaway

Earlier this fall I posted about my love for yogurt and new discover of the greek yogurts out there. I fell in love with Chobani. I tried several flavors that were available at my local Target and Copp's grocery stores.


Shortly after, I received a sweet email from Emily at Chobani (HERE). She came across my blog post and thanked me for trying out their 'gurts, and offered to send me some more flavors to try out ... and some directly to one of you, too!


Over 19,000 peeps like Chobani on Facebook (HERE). That should say something. Do you?!




My kids and I loooooove yogurt. I have 3-4 cartons a day. We typically have about 3-4 kinds of adult yogurt in the house and 1-2 kinds of children's yogurt. See my refrigerator?!?!


Chobani is different. It's creamy ... satisfying ... and filling. I mean, it has TWICE the amount of protein in other yogurts. It's great for breakfast, lunch, snacks, mixed with granola or fruit. Yum.


Because we eat so much yogurt, it can get quite expensive. I mean, I've seen Chobani sold for as high as $1.79 at my local grocery store. When you're stocking up on several cartons for the week, that can definitely get expensive. I tend to only purchase a few cartons (more if they are on sale) and treat myself only a few times during the week. I have seen it sold cheaply in bulk at Costco, when we were browsing; but, we don't have a membership.


Chobani is launching a line of kids greek yogurt in January 2011. My kids will be thrilled.


My favorite things is the texture and how it's so creamy. It feels like an indulgence. And, I savor every bite.


Some of the 6 oz containers are low-fat and some of them are fat-free. They tend to have more calories than the other yogurts out there. But, the fact that they are so satisfying off-sets the calorie count. My favorite is the Pomegranate fat-free yogurt. Others high on my list include: Honey Non-Fat, Strawberry Non-Fat, Pineapple 2% and Plain 2% (great with granola!).

  27. This afternoon I was at a specialty grocery store called Fresh Market and saw this brand in the cooler. It looked interested but passed it up because of the cost and I was uncertain of how it would taste. Thanks for giving a review and give away for it. I printed a coupon from their website - that was very fab! I also think the strawberry or peach would be the flavors I'd try first.

  65. My husband and I go through about 21 CHO yogurts per week. It's a bit expensive, but it's well worth it. I save money on other items so I can afford the yogurt. :)
    I love the smoothie video on their website.

    ReplyDelete
  66. One thing I like about their yogurt is that it's easy to find at the grocery store, that you don't have to go to a specialty store to buy it.

    12 packs of yogurt should last awhile - nice contest!
