Chobani – Mango Fruit on the Bottom

Posted by terrepruitt on July 26, 2011

You might have read that I was asked to do a Nia demo at a somewhat local Fitbloggin‘ MeetUp on Fitbloggin’ World Meetup Day.  I had stated that there was a lunch.  The lunch was a wonderful potluck lunch.  There was a lot of yummy food on the table.  One thing that was on the table that Foodie was sharing was containers of Chobani Yogurt.  I had never tried that, but I had wanted to because I remember seeing it on her blog.  At the end of the meeting they were all still in the bowl she had them in.  At first I grabbed one, one I knew I would like.  Honey.  But there was more left and she was generously pushing all the leftovers off on people, so I grabbed another one.  One I probably wouldn’t buy because I wouldn’t think I would like it.  I am not a fruity yogurt person.  It was mango.  Ok, guess what?  I am now a fruity yogurt person.

When I first opened it I thought, “Yuck!  Fruit on the bottom.”  Not only do I not like the fruity yogurt flavors, I do not like the fruit on the bottom.  But I wanted to try it.  So I stirred.  It was really good.  Mango can be a mushy fruit when it is really ripe, or after I am done cutting it.  But typically it is not a mushy fruit to begin with so it held up well in the yogurt.  That is one reason I don’t like fruit in yogurt is gets mushy.  I am not a fan of super mushy fruit.  Another reason I am not a fruity yogurt person is that it is usually too sweet.  This was not too sweet.  It was really good.  I had a little tartness to it, I think.  The combination of the crunch of the fruit and the not-too-sweet made it really good.

After my first bite I thought, “This is why they give this stuff away.”  Because once people try it they will more than likely buy it.  I know that I have purchased a large variety of products that I normally would not have had I not been able to try them in the past few years.  For some products a free sample is awesome.

This morning I tried the honey, which turned out not to be honey.  It is vanilla.  Honey or vanilla is usually the flavor I buy or lemon.  But I have not seen a lemon flavor in the Greek yogurt.  And the yogurt I used to buy has HFCS in it.  Not something I want to eat.   Besides I love the protein in Greek yogurt.  There is such a great amount, it is awesome.  In addition to be so much thicker and creamier.  Yum.

Well my verdict on the vanilla is, no thanks.  At least not to eat plain.  Maybe if you at it as a dip or put honey in it, it would be ok.  But I would not grab a container of that to eat just by itself.  It tasted like the PLAIN non-fat yogurt of the brand I used to buy, except with a bitter kick to it.  I only ate a portion of it.  I will stick to the mango flavor.
