A couple of months ago CHOBANI yogurt started following me on Twitter. I don’t follow very many brands on Twitter. I mean, brands are not always that interactive with me so I don’t usually bother. Before long, however, CHOBANI was teasing me on Twitter. They knew all about Tiny-Small. They knew about some of our wacky adventures. They were actually reading my blog posts. I don’t know who operates the Twitter handle over at the Greek Yogurt company, but they are pretty hilarious. I found myself following CHOBANI back. They won me over with their wit and humor. Also, we love Greek Yogurt around here. Tiny-Small eats it every day. She’s a yogurt aficionado at the ripe old age of two.
To my surprise CHOBANI sent me an email asking if we would like to sample some of their new CHOBANI Champions yogurt in a tube! I agreed because, seriously, who turns down free yogurt? I even volunteered to do a review of it on my blog. I mean, why not? I know you guys like yogurt too.
They sent us two flavors in a tube. One was Rockin’ Blueberry and one was Jammin’ Strawberry. Tiny-Small loves them both. This yogurt in a tube is so creamy, it reminds me of the milkshakes I used to get from an ice cream shop near my house as a kid. The best part is that CHOBANI uses healthy ingredients. There isn’t a bunch of chemicals or high fructose corn syrup. Strawberries and blueberries are actually in the list of ingredients. Real fruit! Not just fruit flavoring. Tiny-Small ate one before I unpacked the box of yogurt that came in the mail. Then she promptly ate two more. She was happy because it was delicious, I was happy because it was healthy. I had to hide a few so I could taste it before it was all gone!
We had a little problem with the yogurt tubes at first. Tiny-Small would squeeze them too hard and squirt yogurt all over my leg. I put a few in the freezer and froze them into yogurt popsicles. This made it a little easier for her to manipulate the tubes and reduced the mess. She seems to have mastered the art of eating yogurt from a tube now, after some practice, but it you have a younger child or want to take them in the car freezing helps reduce the accidental yogurt slingshot.
To my surprise CHOBANI also sent us some of their Greek Yogurt bites (just 100 calories!). We sampled both the coffee with dark chocolate chips and the raspberry with dark chocolate chips. Jim and I were excited to see the coffee one because we both LOVE coffee. We drink a lot of that around here. The raspberry one, however, was our absolute favorite. It tasted like fresh raspberries. It tasted like real raspberries. Both of them were creamy and an excellent source of protein. The perfect snack for an afternoon energy crisis. Not to mention they also have live and active cultures in them. I had my wisdom teeth removed last week so I have been living on CHOBANI Greek Yogurt. It is easy to swallow, satisfies my hunger and also counteracts the effects of taking an antibiotic for ten days. This yogurt arrived in the mail exactly when I needed it most. Thank you, CHOBANI!
Want to follow them on Twitter and see if they make fun of you too? @CHAMPIONS
Disclosure: CHOBANI sent me a box of yogurt to sample, but I wasn’t paid or compensated in anyway other way to write this review. Unless you count getting teased on Twitter by a yogurt company that likes to crack jokes at your expense. If I didn’t like the yogurt I would tell you because, like George Washington, I cannot tell a lie. I’d even cut down my cherry tree just to prove it, but luckily I don’t have a cherry tree. Not to mention I am acutely allergic to hard labor.
