Just a quick post from the gym as I wait for Zumba to start because this announcement really can’t wait until I’m home later tonight.
I LOVE CHOBANI GREEK YOGURT!
Now that marathon training is over, I’ve started adding dairy back into my diet (in small ways) because I find, for me, the extra protein really helps provide satisfaction and satiety better than nuts and fruit can. That’s what she said.
At the grocery store last night, I decided to buy one of each of the following:
Since Chobani was on top of my refrigerator yogurt tower this morning, it was the lucky first contestant. Like an episode of Singled Out, Chobani met its one true love: Back to Nature Classic Granola, courtesy of the lovely and talented Heather and her fabulous giveaway! I brought ~1/4 cup of granola to work and poured every last morsel into the creamy yogurt goodness as soon as I got the afternoon snack attack.
Loves: thick, creamy texture (reminded me of Fage); delicious, light vanilla flavor (not too sweet, didn’t taste artificial); 16 grams of craving-smashing protein in one container!
Dislikes: price – even though the Chobani is less expensive than the Oikos (which I haven’t tasted yet), it’s still not cheap (aka Light n’ Fit yogurts used to be 10/$10 at Shaws in Boston!); non-organic – I appreciate that Oikos is organic, while Chobani is not, but we’ll see what I think of the difference in taste!
The good budget news is that you can download and print a coupon from the Chobani website here, so that cuts the cost a bit.
