After hearing rave reviews from several friends concerning the amazingness that is Greek yogurt, I decided I would forego my Brown Cow and give it a try. Apparently, Greek yogurt is typically prepared with sheep milk or goat milk rather than cow milk and the water is strained out, making it a bit more dense than the regular variety (and it has twice the protein).
When we happened upon the yogurt section at our local grocery store, I found that the Greek yogurt was in the same grouping as my regular favorites, such as Brown Cow, Horizon, and Stonyfield. I saw this brand first so I grabbed it up, as shopping with two little ones leaves very little time for perusing or considering. Survival is the priority.
I put the kiddos down for naps and settled in front of the TV to try my new yogurt. Just as I was opening the package, a commercial for Chobani yogurt came on. No joke. I hadn't even heard of it before! So, I grabbed a spoon and tried a bite.
Oh, y'all. Oh. AMAZING.
The texture is what makes it, for me. So thick and creamy. I tried the vanilla and wasn't a huge fan of the flavor, but the raspberry, blueberry, pomegranate, and strawberry definitely aim to please! Delicious. And, the kiddos love it. Cub asks for it every morning for breakfast, so I divvy up one container between the three of us (Naomi is also a huge fan). Just as I was typing this post, Cub walked in and saw the picture and exclaimed, "Let's go to the grocery store and get some yogurt!"
Good idea, Buddy!
We've tried Stoneyfield's Oikos yogurt as well and it's tasty, but Chobani is by far our favorite (both are made with cow's milk, I believe). I think it's safe to say everyone in the family is happy that my impulsive thinking resulted in Chobani. Yay for yummy yogurt ... especially one that everyone loves!
Have a lovely day!
