simply...go-gurt review and giveaway

i am surprised to discover how much my kids love yogurt.  i don't really like the taste of yogurt myself.  i have to make myself eat it.  my kids, however, love to pick out all different flavors and varieties of yogurt.  for us it is a lunch staple.

unfortunately, i have spent way too much time at the grocery store trying to pretend my kids aren't whining and throwing tantrums while i read the labels on every kind of yogurt trying to find one that doesn't have high fructose corn syrup or aspartame.  i can't find one.  we have even gone so far as to buy plain yogurt and add our own flavoring to it.  the problem is, that isn't exactly a portable option.

yoplait seems to have heard my tale of woe.  they have come to my rescue with simply...go-gurt.  now i have a portable option for my kids' lunches that is made from simple ingredients without high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors or flavors.  now i can make sure my kids get a serving of calcium and vitamin d without worrying about all the extra yucky stuff i would rather they didn't have.

simply...go-gurt is available in strawberry and mixed berry, two of my kids' favorite flavors.  if you would like to give it a try, you can go here for a coupon for $1 off.  you can also go to this website and be one of the first 30 people to get a coupon for a free sample.  if you are not one of the first 30, you will get a coupon for $1.10 off simply...go-gurt.

you can also try for a coupon for a free sample along with some other fun items that can simplify your life (a pocket etch-a-sketch, a weekly planner and a seat back organizer).  if you want to win this "simplify your life" prize pack, just leave a comment below telling me your kids' favorite healthy snack.  i'm always looking for more healthy options to offer my kids!  i will choose a winner using on may 25th, zoe's birthday.  i'm sorry to say this is only available to readers in the usa.

as a thank you for doing this review, i received my own "simplify your life" prize pack and a coupon for my own free sample of simply...go-gurt from yoplait through myblogspark.  they have also offered me a prize pack to offer to you.


  1. I have been happily buying Simply...go gurt for a couple of months now, after having pretty much boycotted kids' yogurt.

    My kids love apple slices with peanut butter, and they also really like smoothies made with pretty much any fruit I have on hand.

  2. didn't know these existed until now!!!!

    my kids fav' is a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese and a few Honey Wheat Club crackers (that they, for some unknown reason, call "Cinderella Crackers"?)

  3. Gotta love strawberries with chocolate! Also like peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

  4. Pretty much any fruit...frozen blueberries are ranked at the top.

  5. My kids love cheese sticks. Their favorite is NOT string cheese--what?? Crazy kids. They prefer colby-jack or cheddar cheese sticks. Easy to carry around and eat outside. I guess they are starting their lives as cheese snobs early (they get it from both Sean & I who would eat cheese 24/7 if allowed).
