First of all, I know that I have mentioned to all of you that I’ve stopped Blogging. That is true, but on occasion (perhaps once per month), I may accept an offer from a company to send me some samples, then do a Review of them. The reason I’m not blogging much, is that I have a really full-time job that is keeping me busy, plus other personal pursuits. That being said…I did accept an offer for some samples to be sent to me…

I give a “Shout-Out” to Katy, from Yoplait, who sent me some wonderful samples of their new Greek Blended Yogurts. She sent me 2 flavors: Vanilla and Coconut. Please note that my opinions are my own and I am not being paid by Yoplait to say anything specific towards their products.
That being said, feel free to read more here About Yoplait. First, Yoplait has several product lines:
- Yoplait Original Yoplait Greek Yoplait Kids Yoplait Go-Gurt
- Yoplait Trix Yoplait Whips Yoplait Light Yoplait Large Size
- Yoplait Lactose Free
Here’s a bit more about the company:
A pretty basic idea: goodness is better than badness. And SO goodness is better than just plain goodness. Yoplait is striving for so goodness. In ourselves, the yogurts we make and in the way we behave. We’ve sort of been about this for a long time, but now we’re trying to make it more of a mission, and to include more people on the journey of spreading so goodness. Ultimately, we’re focused on making so good yogurt, and here’s how we see it: you can eat something that tastes amazing but isn’t that good for you. You can eat stuff that’s really good for you, but doesn’t always leave you yummed up. So good yogurt does both. All of you is happy, not just your tongue. And while so goodness will never be perfect, we’ll keep working on ways to make our yogurt more so good than it is today. We also support causes that you care about. Like fighting breast cancer. We’re thinking we should do this in an even bigger way. We’re figuring that out and want your input. People say life is really about the little moments of so goodness. There are big moments – we all know what those are – but since they don’t happen as often, we’ll stay focused on doing our part with the little moments. As we go forward together, we want your help spreading so goodness. There is actually way more good going on than people talk about. Let’s talk about it. Let’s share it!

My Reviews & Ratings:
So, first of all, I honestly wasn’t feeling too “optimistic” when I knew I’d be receiving Yoplait’s Greek Yogurt samples, just simply because I’ve been loving, and have been feeling that THE BEST Greek Yogurt is Chobani, Oikos, Fage, Voskos, Zoi, Brown Cow and StonyField (most of which you can read Reviews of on my Blog here) have been amazingly good. As well, honestly “Yoplait” the brand, I’ve just simply honestly internally “labeled” as kind of a “big-corporate-generic-brand” for years, so I wasn’t sure their Greek Yogurt would “match-up” or even exceed those of the “true-Greek-originated” brands. However, I’ve been pleasantly surprised! The taste ranks up there with the others, and with 140 calories, that’s pretty moderate for a cup of yogurt, although I tend to like the 80-100 cal cups. But with Yoplait’s Greek Yogurts having 11 g protein, that’s pretty awesome. Read below….
Blended Greek Vanilla – 4.5 out of 5 - I am honestly not a big fan of just plain Vanilla Yogurt but it’s a classy flavor. I love French Vanilla creamer, Lactose-Free Fro-Yo, and Vanilla “flavored” things like coffee, but for some reason Vanilla Yogurt just isn’t sweet enough for me. However, Yoplait’s Vanilla Yogurt truly has that nice classy french vanilla bean taste. Texture-wise, it’s just as thick and rich like other Greek brands.
Blended Greek Coconut – 5.0 out of 5 - I sincerely love coconut flavored things as long as the items don’t have any of the coconut flakes within them. I simply don’t like the texture of them. This yogurt did not disappoint at all. In fact, I really appreciated and love this specific flavor. Chobani and several other Greek Yogurt Brands don’t include coconut. This flavor had a lovey “tropical-like” creaminess, and was smooth and rich all around.
Nutrition: 1 serving = 150 calories, 1 g fat, 23 g carbs, 19 g sugar, 11 g protein.
Overall, I think I’m going to start purchasing Yoplait’s Blended Greek Nonfat Yogurt at my local grocer because the taste matches up with an is just as healthy (high protein) as other brands. Not only that, but Yoplait tends to be cheaper/less expensive/more affordable, than the other “Greek” brands. As well, Although I haven’t tasted the remainder flavors in this Yoplait Blended Greek Nonfat Yogurt line, I definitely want to taste all 4 of the others: Pineapple, Tangerine, Strawberry, and Blueberry.
