WIN THIS: A sampler pack of Chobani yogurt!

If you were to place me on a deserted island with five of my favorite things, you can be sure that I'd have me some Greek yogurt. And if that Greek yogurt was of the Chobani brand, I'd smile myself silly. Don't get me wrong, I am more than willing to express my devotion to a wide variety of Greek yogurt brands. But I repeatedly turn to Chobani because it tastes divine and is readily available. Somewhat expensive, that's true. But worth it, especially when you want yogurt that's good for you. You can imagine how excited I was to find this on my doorstep:



Jackpot! Count them, one...two...TWELVE cups of Chobani Greek yogurt in 12 different delicious flavors. When they said they were going to send me something to review, I expected a few coupons in my mailbox. Or maybe a cup or two packed strategically in some dry ice. Needless to say, I literally jumped for joy when I discovered the above. Aren't they so pretty?

Chobani Greek yogurt is, as I've said, one of my most favorite foods. The fat content in each cup is fairly low, the ingredients are all natural which means there isn't a preservative in sight. Also included in each cup—a decent amount of bone-building calcium, as well as the muscle-must otherwise known as protein. Oh, and some serious flavor that sometimes results from the addition of fruit. I know, I know...fruit on the bottom of a yogurt cup isn't always the best thing out there. I typically don't like it at all for a number of reasons (taste, sugar). But Chobani got it right. They really did, simply because they use real fruit that's been sweetened with just a touch of natural sugar. None of that HFCS stuff we've all learned to avoid (but sometimes can't, thank you food industry). And speaking of fruit, they've used it all. Think pineapples, strawberries, bananas...even mangoes and pomegranates. But if you prefer the simple style of yogurt, lemon and honey flavors keep it real. And the flavorless straight-up Greek yogurts work well in recipes. Check out the Chobani Kitchen for inspiration. You'll want to eat everything like I did in terms of the box above. Proof:

I do believe the Lemon flavor was my absolute favorite. The addition of strawberries and blueberries made it especially divine. (I wonder if I can achieve the same effect by squeezing some lemon juice into a carton of plain yogurt. Hm.) Next up, Pomegranate.

Served in a rush with a side of toast topped with peanut butter and homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam. I hate eating while I'm getting ready, but when you have to, you want something that's quick but tasty. I pack them when I know I have to eat at the gym, too.

Honey rocked my taste buds, and I honestly never thought of adding it to my yogurt. In this case, I've also added crushed peanuts and some Chia seeds, and I served it to myself with a side of banana.

For now Blueberry's the best for me, however, I suspect lemon would be if I could find it in the stores here. So far, my favorite add-in...chocolate shavings into Strawberry or granola into Blueberry. Either way, friends and family now know what I mean by "I need my daily Cho-therapy."

Can't wait to try the peach! I love this yogurt with fruit and granola.

I just recently discovered that I love Chobani yogurt! I have not tried many flavors, as I live in a small college town and the stores here do not sell Chobani. =( I would love to try the lemon flavor and top it with strawberries. It's like a different twist on strawberry lemonade! The picture you posted looked so tasty!

I hope to find a store near me that sells the deliciousness that is Chobani!

Umm, your concoction sounds delicious! "Honey rocked my taste buds, and I honestly never thought of adding it to my yogurt. In this case, I've also added crushed peanuts and some Chia seeds, and I served it to myself with a side of banana." Chobani has been my new favorite afternoon snack to hold me over until dinner. :)

P.S. would love to win the pack of Chobani - I followed your steps and am now going to read your blog! :)

I would love to try the Lemon flavor and add blueberries and blackberries.

I've never tried any of these~ so it would be great to try some. The honey would be good with some walnuts and cinnamon.

I've been dying to try the Pomegranate kind. With regular old granola. Nothing better than plain old granola and yogurt.

So I usually am not a yogurt fan. The texture makes me gag BUT I did find Chobani way up here in Far-Go at my local grocery. Went with the "safe" strawberry and YUM!! Thicker textured and full of flavor. I am a fan. And will like on Facebook!
