Local Love: Chobani Greek Yogurt review & giveaway

If you know anything about me, you know I love yogurt. Plain yogurt, fruity yogurt, yogurt in my smoothies, yogurt in my dips. I love it all. And I save some of that love for Greek yogurt, which is relatively new to me as I've only eaten for the past year or so.

Some Greek yogurt I've liked, some I haven't. Some has been smooth and tasty and beyond creamy, some has been bitter.

Fortunately, when I was testing out Chobani Greek Yogurt for this review it fell under the "smooth and tasty and beyond creamy" heading. It is, in a word, delicious.


I was sent a sample package of Chobani yogurts -- a variety of flavors including pineapple, strawberry, vanilla, pomegranate, etc. I put them all to the test: I ate some, my son ate some, even my husband tried out the yogurt. And we all agreed: Delicious! Owen eats yogurt fairly regularly but he had never tried Greek yogurt until he tried the Chobani. Unsolicited, he told me that he likes the Chobani Greek yogurt better than the regular stuff. It's thicker, creamier, more substantial. Conal just went for the flavors.

I liked the taste and consistency, too, but I also appreciate the health benefits. Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt and lower sodium. You can learn all about the health benefits of Chobani and some other good stuff HERE. (For the record, my favorite flavor is pineapple, followed closely by the vanilla. The pomegranate was eh but all of the others that I tasted were good!)

I also love that Chobani is produced right here in upstate New York. And that's why they are part of my Local Love feature. There are many wonderful companies producing high-quality products right here in New York State and Chobani is definitely one of them. You can read an interesting article on Chobani and Greek yogurt in New York State in this article. Go ahead, check it out. It's good stuff.

Or, as Chobani would say, "nothing but good."

I believe it. And I plan to keep loving this local yogurt because not only will that support business in my state but it will also support enjoyment in my meals. Nothing but good.

To buy:

Around here, Chobani is available in Hannaford and Price Chopper supermarkets. You can search for retailers on the Chobani web site "Where to Buy" page. You can also snag some coupons on the site while you're there.
