Yoplait Greek Yogurt: Review and Giveaway

I love Greek yogurt.  It's so creamy and thick and sweet, it's easy to think you're having a dessert.  Problem with Greek yogurt is that it's much more expensive, even on sale and compared to my already expensive organic yogurt.
So, when I was given the opportunity to try and review Yoplait's new line of Greek yogurt, I was happy to oblige!  I already had seen the brand on the shelves and noticed that it was not quite as expensive as the other varieties of Greek yogurt.  I chose strawberry.


The first thing I have to tell you is that all their varieties are fruit on the bottom, which is not my first choice when buying yogurt.  I don't like the added sugar and much prefer the already blended or, even better, adding my own fruit and honey to plain yogurt.  That said, when compared to my favorite non Greek yogurt (the organic one), the sugar content is much less--Yoplait's 6oz container has 20g of sugar while the other has 25g in the same size.

Yoplait's take on Greek yogurt also has double the protein of my favorite non Greek yogurt.

I really enjoyed Yoplait's Greek yogurt; I thought it was really creamy and smooth, and the strawberry at the bottom was delicious although a little too sweet.  If you'd like to try it, here's a coupon for 35 cents off a container!

On to the goods!  Yoplait is offering Tales from the Mad Men Kitchen readers the chance to win a Yoplait Greek gift pack that includes a coupon organizer, a magnetic customized meal planner board, a mini pocket fold-up tote, an electronics case, retractable ear buds, a magnetic shopping cart note holder and a pen.

Full disclosure:  I received a free 6oz container of Yoplait Greek Yogurt, a prize pack from Yoplait, and this giveaway all from Yoplait through My Blog Spark. The opinions are my own.
