I jumped at the opportunity to review the new Greek yogurt by Yoplait. The funny thing is that I had just returned home from Stop & Shop where I bought a cup of the blueberry flavor. I was eager to try the two other flavors - honey vanilla and strawberry (there is also a plain flavor). Now, I eat light yogurt almost every day. Mostly I use it on cereal in place of milk. I had wanted to try Greek yogurt for awhile but was afraid it would be too sour, so this was the perfect opportunity.
The first flavor I tried was strawberry. I was pleasantly surprised at how sweet it was. Not as sweet as regular yogurt, but not as sour as I thought it would be. The yogurt was also really thick. I found the same for the blueberry, though it was a little less sweet than the strawberry.
I approached the honey vanilla with some trepidation... but again I was surprised. Yes it was more sour, but it wasn't pucker your lips sour, jsut more tart. I mixed it chocolate granola to make it a little sweeter, and with the ticker yogurt, it seemed like a more filling breakfast.
Verdict: Two thumbs up. While I wouldn't eat this every day, due to the calories, I would eat this on occasion or when I would need a more filling breakfast. I am not scared of Greek yogurt anymore!!
