  1. Have tried the Beet & Cherry Kroger yogurt–good, while the Cucumber Blueberry is horrible. Bought the remaining flavors but have not tried yet.

  2. Agreed. The Cucumber Blueberry is not good. I think it is more about the texture than the taste. Have not tried the Beet and Cherry yet, but the Pineapple Spinach Kiwi, the Apricot Butternut, and the Lemon Zucchini are surprisingly good.

  3. Eating the Lemon Zucchini now. Didn’t have high expectations for it, but it’s really good. Can’t wait to try the others (bought all except for the Blueberry Cucumber – which apparently was a good call per the above comments).

  4. The spiced apricot is very good! I agree with the others the cucumber was gross. The pineapple wasn’t bad.
    I started a low carb diet and still have an apricot one the frig. It expires 2/24 so I may have to eat it as a treat.

  5. I wonder what went wrong with the blueberry cucumber yogurt. I’m greek and eating cucumber in yogurt isn’t uncommon here, and I like blueberries in yogurt too. But the cucumbers they used in this yogurt tasted more like pickles than fresh cucumber to me.

  6. Liked the apricot/squash, cherry/beet, and lemon/zucchini. Want to try the kiwi/spinach. The blueberry part tasted OK, but the cucumber was hard and slightly sour. The cucumber would have tasted better with a savory blend.

  7. I liked all of the flavors of the new Kroger greek yogurt. The pineapple/kiwi/spinach & blueberry/cucumber are my favs. They’re smart to keep the yogurt & the flavor jelly separate, it keeps the flavors bright.

  8. I liked cherry beet, blueberry cucumber (tasted good to me), and lemon zucchini. I think pineapple spinach kiwi is terrible—the tiny pineapple chunks are the wrong texture for yogurt. The texture was too disturbing for me to recognize if I liked the flavor. Finally, I’m really sad that my store had no apricot butternut squash. I really want to try it.
