Everyone is already aware of Yoplait and the products they make, so we’ll keep the introduction short. The one thing we would like to note is that Yoplait is trying to jump on the bandwagon of Greek yogurt, in hopes of cornering part of the market. They have 9 different flavors in their Greek yogurt line, however, this review will focus on their Key Lime and Blueberry flavors. To learn more about Yoplait, head to their web-site for more information. Also, if you want to check out the Food Review 101 Facebook page, we wouldn’t stop you.
Yoplait says, “Greek yogurt is good but Yoplait® Greek is SO good. That’s because our Greek yogurt tastes as good as a Yoplait should! We all know Greek yogurt is thick, creamy and packed with protein… but only one has the great taste you expect from a Yoplait”. We’re not so sure that they rival the other major players in the Greek yogurt market; however, we didn’t hate it as much as we thought we would. As you can see from the picture, all of the fruit is on the bottom of the cups, so you have to stir it pretty heavily in order to bring everything to the top and mixed together. That isn’t too difficult to do, but the bad thing about this yogurt is that it isn’t nearly as good as the original mass producers of Greek yogurt. The first flavor we started with was Key Lime, and we usually wouldn’t try this flavor, and it became obvious half way through this review why. The key lime aspect was OK, a bit too tangy for a few of us, but the yogurt it-self isn’t as creamy as we were hoping it would be. The Blueberry flavor was much better than the Key Lime variety, however, it wasn’t nearly as good as other brands we’ve tried out. It has a decent amount of blueberries in it, but it also contains quite a bit of added sugar, which a few of our testers didn’t enjoy too much. If you’re looking for a cheaper Greek yogurt, perhaps this will do; however, if you don’t want to sacrifice taste or texture, we recommend you stick with the tried and true brands that started the Greek yogurt phenomenon. Overall (3 out of 5).
The pros are that they have 9 flavors to choose from, it’s cheaper Greek yogurt, you can find them at most grocery stores nation-wide, and it’s somewhat healthy.
The cons are that the flavors aren’t too great, the texture isn’t as creamy as other brands, and it has a decent amount of added sugar in it.
