In case you have not noticed the addition of some new Chobani products in the yogurt section of your local grocer, let me give you a run down on what’s new for the famed yogurt company this year. If you didn’t happen to see them for yourself, you are not alone. I tend to be in “focus” mode at the supermarket. Get in, get what is on the list, and get out. Luckily Chobani reached out to me at the end of last year to see if I was interested in trying out some of their new products. Obviously I said YES! Every career has its perks, and sampling food products is the main one us RDs get. 🙂 Big thanks up front to Chobani for sending their yogurt my way!
I came home on February 14th (aka-Valentine’s Day) in a crabby mood. I had gotten ~2 hours of sleep, spent ~$1,000 in car repair bills, and suffered through an Immunology test all before noon and then was working until 9pm. It was a rough day. Luckily, some love from Chobani was waiting at my doorstep to cheer me up!
Joining the standard Greek Yogurt line-up are Pear (Non-fat) and Banana (Low-fat). After trying out the pear flavor all I could think was “Why don’t I eat pears more often? They are delicious!”. Both flavors were wonderful, but I think Black Cherry is still my all-time favorite Chobani flavor!
These small (3.5 oz) yogurts come in at 100 calories each. Perfect for a small snack and sweet enough for dessert. Currently available in 4 flavors (Raspberry with Dark Chocolate Chips, Coffee with Dark Chocolate Chips, Fig with Orange Zest, and Caramel with Pineapple Chunks). I was sent the Raspberry and Coffee varieties, which were both great. I may try to stick the last Coffee yogurt in the freezer and see if it would be an appropriate substitute for coffee ice cream!
A few months ago I posted about some of my recent favorite foods. On the list was the Muller Corner Yogurts, so I was excited to see Chobani Flips in my box full of Yogurt. I was able to try out the Almond Coco Loco and the Honey Bee Nana flavors. I didn’t think the Almond Coco Loco would be good since I am not much of a coconut person, but mixing almonds and chocolate in to coconut yogurt is actually pretty amazing! They have some other interesting, out-of-the-box yogurt flavors, such as Key Lime Crumble, that I am going to track down and try next!
I don’t know why, but yogurt from a tube has always freaked me out a bit. While my classmates were downing Go-Gurt back in the day, I did not. That has stuck with my since childhood, so I passed the Tubes off to my advisor’s children to enjoy! Most kids seem to like eating yogurt from a tube, and since no spoon is involved it is probably great to pack in to lunch boxes, so check those out if your child is a fan!
If you find yourself face-to-face with any of these new products, I recommend trying them out. To make it easier to afford, coupons are available on the Chobani site!
Have you seen the new Chobani flavors? Which ones have you tried out and like the best?
