yoplait greek yogurt review and giveaway

here is a little confession: i do not like the taste of yogurt. i know it is good for me, i know that there are a variety of flavors to attract my tastebuds, but i simply do not like that yogurty-sour flavor.

understanding my agony, my mom recently introduced me to greek yogurt. somehow, the flavor of greek yogurt doesn't seem to bother me the same way that regular yogurt does. unfortunately, i have had a hard time finding greek yogurt at our local grocery store.

imagine my delight, then, when i discovered that yoplait is now offering greek yogurt! in addition to a great taste, yoplait's greek yogurt has the additional benefit of offering 12 grams of protein, twice that found in the regular leading yogurts.

yoplait's greek yogurt comes in four different flavors: strawberry, blueberry, honey vanilla and plain. if you are kind of iffy on yogurt like i am, you might be surprised to discover that you enjoy the unique thick and creamy texture of the greek yogurt.

if you need more encouragement to give it a try, you can go here for a coupon for 30 cents off one cup of yoplait greek yogurt.* 

i would also like to give you an opportunity to win coupons for two free cups of yogurt.  along with the coupons, you can "nourish your inner goddess" with a gift pack filled with goodies to help you relax.  just leave me a comment telling me which flavor of yoplait greek yogurt you would most like to try.  i will randomly select a winner using random.org on may 25th.  u.s. residents only please.

*unfortunately, the coupons don't work in some states including california, idaho, louisiana, minnesota, nevada, new jersey, north dakota, and tennessee.

i received two coupons for free cups of yoplait greek yogurt, as well as my own "nourish your inner goddess" gift pack for the purpose of this review from yoplait through myblogspark (that is why i have seemed so relaxed lately, i guess!). they gave me the prize pack, coupons and information about the yogurt .  this has not influenced my opinion of this product in any way.  the opinions expressed here are purely my own.

  1. I'm totally intrigued because I do love regular yogurt, even though I agree the yogurty-sour taste exists. I would have to try the honey vanilla because that's a warm flavor with a cold food that I wouldn't normally put together. So, I would have to try that to see if it works together. Thanks for the review. I really want to try it now.

  4. bummer...am I too late? I'd love to try strawberry yogurt. I have been scared to buy some worried that I won't like it, so this would be a great way to try some. :)
