Greek Yogurt...review and GIVEAWAY!

A few months ago, I was sent a gift pack with some coupons to try out Yoplait's new Greek Yogurt. I love trying new stuff--especially food! (Yoplait provided me with the free product, information, and gift pack through MyBlogSpark ).

To celebrate its new Greek yogurt and to encourage women to nourish their inner goddess, Yoplait has teamed up with actress Izabella Miko, who plays Greek Goddess Athena in the epic adventure new Warner Bros. Pictures´ and Legendary Pictures´ film "Clash of the Titans."
I was pretty excited to get a fun, relaxing package in the mail...everything I needed to nourish my inner goddess (since this pregnant belly makes me far from an outward goddess!) I got the package, went promptly to the store to get some yogurt to try, then forgot all about reviewing this milk-based product after reading The China Study (among other fascinating nutrition books...I'll share later).

This yogurt comes in four different flavors: strawberry, blueberry, honey vanilla, and plain. Each container is packed with 12 grams of protein--twice that found in leading yogurts. The only flavor we actually tried was the honey vanilla. I have to be honest--I didn't love it. Vanilla-flavored yogurt is normally my kids' favorite, so we went with that. After a few bites, however, they passed this yogurt on to me. I think I would have preferred the blueberry.

But hey--it was free, and as you know--I love free! Free just tastes better, don't you think? If you want to try out this new yogurt, check out this $0.30 coupon, or enter my giveaway!

Definitely honey vanilla!

I would probably try blueberry. It's the healthier berry. ;)

Strawberry is my favorite flavor. However, honey vanilla sounds so yummy!

Twice the protein? Does that mean twice the CASEIN? No thank you...ha ha. Your review doesn't really make me want to try it, either.

I actually like all the flavors except plain, but it is definitely an acquired taste. Berries make it better too. I love knowing I'm getting so much protein. I'm also excited for the coupon since that stuff is so expensive.

I'll say strawberry. I actually got the blueberry free on a good sale, but I wasn't a fan! I gave it to Cambria. :) I have the plain right now, and I'm thinking of using it as sour cream in a recipe, or to add to a smoothie. But yes, that's exciting that you're doing a giveaway! Love em.
