The Taste-Off

This post is brought to you by Yoplait via Linqia.  All opinions are my own.

A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to do (what I thought was) a really interesting post!

Yoplait has a new line of Greek yogurts.  They're asking Greek yogurt lovers out there to reassess what they think their favorite brand is.  I've always been a big fan of Chobani, so I was definitely up to at least see if Yoplait had them beat!

So, I went out and bought Chobani Greek Blueberry Fruit on the Bottom and Yoplait Greek Blueberry…presumably should be about the same, right?  I saw some pretty big differences right away!

Calories - Chobani Wins

One 5.3 ounce serving of Chobani Blueberry Greek Fruit on the Bottom has 130 calories…one serving of Yoplait Greek Blended Blueberry has 140.  Not a big difference, but does give a little bit of an edge to Chobani if you're watching what you eat.

Visual Appeal - Yoplait Wins

Open the packs up and you can immediately see a pretty big difference  - Chobani had that weird, watery look, and Yoplait was already blended and pretty.

See?  There was really little difference once I mixed them up though.

Taste - Chobani Wins

I performed the very scientific taste test method of closing my eyes and mixing the yogurts around until I couldn't tell which was which. :)  I had to try it a couple of times to really get an idea, but I definitely liked the Chobani better.  It had a very fruity, flavorful taste, whereas the Yoplait had more of a yogurt-y taste…less fruit.  I think it's probably personal preference, but the Chobani won in my book.

Who out there has done the taste test yet?  I'd encourage you to at least try if you're a big Greek yogurt fan…you never know, you might find your new favorite brand!
