For the Love of Chobani
The first time I tried Greek yogurt, I disliked it. I tried Chobani Honey and Blueberry about a year ago but decided it wasn't for me. It lacked the sweetness I was used to with regular yogurt, and I wasn't sure if I was a fan.
At the recommendation of Lauren, I tried FAGE Strawberry and loved it, but they didn't have the variety of flavors I was hoping for. Raspberry, where are you? I went back to Chobani, avoiding Honey and Blueberry, and found plenty of flavors I enjoy. Mango, Pineapple, and there you are Raspberry!
Maybe my tastes have changed in the last year, but after eating this for weeks I can't imagine going back to regular yogurt. I enjoy the tart flavor and thick texture.
Non-fat flavored varieties of Chobani do have slightly more calories than non-fat regular yogurt, but it doesn't hurt that a single 6 oz cup has about 14 grams of protein! This makes part of a great breakfast or a quick snack to tide you over between meals.
