CHO! {giveaway}

I recently had the opportunity to try out some new-to-me Chobani yogurt products.

I first tried the new Chobani Bites.

 IMG_4452

And overall, I just wasn’t a fan. They didn’t have the thick, creamy texture that normal Chobani has and I just didn’t love the flavor combinations. Fig with orange zest, caramel with pineapple chunks, raspberry with dark chocolate chips, and coffee with dark chocolate chips. Now, the boys in my house had a different opinion. Luke loved them, all the flavors. . . except coffee with dark chocolate chips, I didn’t let him eat that one. Scott liked them overall too, however, I don’t think that we will be going out of our way to buy them at the store.

Up next was the  Chobani Flip. I was warned that the texture was similar to the Bites, which it was, but a little thicker, plus the mix-ins were ah-mazing. Seriously, there was fighting in our house and paper,rock, scissor games to decide who would get to eat them!

My favorite by far was the key lime pie crumble. Just like dessert.

Perfect for an after dinner snack. Flip. Love. Winking smile The other awesome flavors I got to check out were (in my order of favorites): almond coco loco (just like an Almond Joy!), strawberry sunrise, vanilla golden crunch, raspberry choco fix, honey bee nana.

I guess you can see that we all loved the flips in this house!

I also received some 0%, 2% and vanilla Chobani. . . and you better believe I made some Perfect Chobani pancakes. Lots and lots and lots of them. Smile

I made fro yo bars that I have been eating for breakfast. Recipe was inspired by Becky. I added a few tweaks of my own too. Check out my version here!!

I also froze some yogurt. I simply spooned it into ice cube trays (just like when I made baby food for Luke), froze it, and then dumped the cubes into a large plastic Ziploc bag. Perfect for later when I am drooling over another Chobani recipe!

And nothing goes to waste in this house –> the Chobani containers are perfect for bath time!!

  11. My local grocery store does a great job of having the key lime flip in stock (which I love) a the closest cub to me have more variety and I’ve tried the coffee and raspberry bites (they were okay, but 100 calories isn’t enough for me). I would like to try the fig bite just to see how it is. I get frustrated that chobani has so many amazing flavors, but it is so hard to get them in my small town! hope I win!

  17. Ooooo, I would love to try the almond coco loco. I try really hard to like yogurt but have a hard time with the bitterness. Chobani is the only one that I’ve come close to liking, but still have a hard time with. Maybe if I try the flips (if I can find them) I’ll enjoy it more with stuff in it if it cuts that bitterness…interesting!
