I’ve written so many Snacks Series on yogurts that I decided to make this a regular round-up. We have a few favorites, but every time I see new yogurts in the dairy section of grocery stores, I can’t resist the temptation to buy them, hehe.
Today’s round-up is an assortment of yogurts that I tried a while back, but never got the chance to post on them…
I have mixed feelings about Fage Greek yogurt… I like the thick and creamy texture, but there’s something about the taste – maybe a hint of saltiness, or bitterness? – that I just don’t enjoy. So, when I noticed these “fruyo” blends – basically, flavored yogurts – I was excited to try them out. The coconut one was quite good – the coconut flavor muted the saltiness that I don’t like, and the texture was just as good as the original Fage. However, the vanilla was not nearly as good – the flavor tasted very artificial. I still definitely want to try some of the other Fage Fruyo flavors, though, since the coconut was good.
I wondered how a “big-brand” yogurt would do in the Greek yogurt department, so I decided to pick up Yoplait’s Greek yogurt. Neither S nor I were a big fan of it – the fruit was way too sweet, and the texture wasn’t thick enough.
S and I both rated these two as “not bad, but not as good as Chobani or Tillamook.” The flavor was nice, and the yogurt had a creamy texture, but there wasn’t anything that made it stand out particularly. The best thing about Voskos brand is that there are often coupons from the Vons Just for U app, so they’re pretty cheap.
Here concludes my first “Yogurt Round-Up”… We’ll see what I come up with next month, hehe. And as always, I’m open to suggestions for new brands!
