Challenge Accepted: Yoplait & Chobani Greek Yogurt Taste Off


Yoplait and Chobani Taste Off

This story was sponsored by Yoplait, but all opinions given are my own.

I am a big fan of Greek yogurt as a healthy snack! I buy it on a weekly basis to help me stay full in between breakfast and lunch as a snack before my lunch break workout. So, when Yoplait asked me to take the Yoplait & Chobani Greek Yogurt Taste Off challenge, I was happy to oblige! I also recruited my sister and brother-in-law at our Easter gathering to help me determine a winner. We tested out the Yoplait Greek 100 strawberry and the Chobani Simply 100 strawberry yogurts.

The Setup:

Chobani and Yoplait Taste Off

This was a blind taste test to see who liked each yogurt better and why. First up? Holly.

The Testers:

Yoplait Greek Yogurt Taste Off

She went with the Yoplait Greek 100 strawberry flavor. Holly doesn’t love Greek yogurt but she disliked this one less, HA!

Next up? Andrew.

Yoplait 100 Calories Greek Yogurt

He also went with the Yoplait 100 Calorie Greek Yogurt. He said the Chobani had a little bit of a weird sweet aftertaste.

And, finally…me. I purchase Chobani on the regular when it’s on sale. It’s the only Greek yogurt I could even stand in the beginning. I became obsessed with their pineapple flavor.

Yoplait and Chobani Greek Yogurt

And the winner for me on a pure taste stand-point? Yoplait 100 calorie Greek Yogurt. However, when you look at the nutritional information, I appreciate the fact that Chobani 100 Calorie Strawberry Yogurt has less sugar per container and more protein. So, overall our vote came out to Yoplait winning the taste-off!

    I love the idea of having a blind taste test. What a fun party idea! I’ve never tried either of these yogurts, but I’ve loved the yogurts I’ve tried by Yoplait!

    What a fun little taste test! Love it! My boys are die hard Chobani eaters, but it sounds like it’s time for us to give Yoplait a try!

    I love this taste test idea! I was not a fan of Greek Yogurt when it first came along. Then I hopped aboard and only liked the Fage brand. However, my wallet does not appreciate the cost of the Fage so I’ve tried several brands as of late and I really dislike the Chiobani, weird taste. I had some coupons for the Yoplait and bought some and me and the kids enjoyed it.

    Thanks.

    I have some Chobani in the fridge. I’ve considered Yoplait’s 100 calorie, but Greek Yogurt takes some getting used to (and I’m still working on that with the Chobani), so I was leery of trying a new one.

    Maybe now I will. Although, I do like the less sugar and more protein of Chobani.

    I have tried both and they are good, but then I started to wonder why and how a 100 calorie yogurt could taste so good. (If it tastes too good to be true, it’s because it is!) Both have artificial sweeteners. Yoplait 100 uses Sucralose (Splenda) and Chobani (while claiming to be all natural) uses Monk fruit extract and Stevia leaf extract. While both of these extracts start off in nature, they go through several chemical processes before becoming food sweeteners and are being questioned for safety in human diets. There is a lot of research out on the dangers of artificial sweeteners, so for me I’d rather have the extra calories in their regular yogurts than risk more chemicals and junk in my diet.

      I can always count on my researcher friend. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for sharing in the comments for everyone to learn and find out. Sugars are such a gray area right now. :-/
