REVIEW LIGHTNING ROUND (YOGURT EDITION) – 3/28/2013

Here are some quick reviews of new-ish yogurt varieties we’re too lazy to write full reviews for:

Yoplait Pro-Force Mixed Berry Burst

Item: Yoplait Pro-Force Mixed Berry Burst
Purchased Price: $2.49 (on sale)
Size: 4 3.5 oz. cups
Purchased at: Safeway
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Nice generic berry flavor. Fat free. Good source of calcium. No berry seeds. Good source of protein and calcium. Contains live and active cultures. Product name doesn’t have a Z that replaces an S.
Cons: No chunks of fruit; blueberry, strawberry, and raspberry flavors come in the form of puree. An adult eating kids yogurt. Product name is kind of silly; it’s as if they’re saying they want to force protein into kids.
Nutrition Facts: 1 container – 90 calories, 0 grams of fat, 60 milligrams of sodium, 14 grams of carbohydrates, 12 grams of sugar, 9 grams of protein, and 25% calcium.

Yoplait GoGurt Twisted Strawberry Mango Tango

Item: Yoplait GoGurt Twisted Strawberry Mango Tango
Purchased Price: $3.00
Size: 8 2.25-oz. tubes
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Strawberry Mango combo is tasty. Very portable. Contains live and active cultures. Gluten free. No spoon needed.
Cons: It’s disappointing the yogurts were not in separate chambers. Two colors in every tube that look like one color when I open the box. Not that great of a source for protein and calcium. Trivia printed on tubes will help your kids become know-it-alls.
Nutrition Facts: 1 tube – 70 calories, 0.5 grams of fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 30 milligrams of sodium, 13 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 10 grams of sugar, 2 grams of protein, and 10% calcium.

YoCrunch Blueberry Yopa

Item: YoCrunch Yopa! Blueberry with Granola
Purchased Price: 62 cents (on sale)
Size: 5.3 ounces
Purchased at: Safeway
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Nice blueberry flavor. Fruit on the bottom. Good source of protein. Contains live and active cultures. Granola provides a nice crunch.
Cons: Unnecessary exclamation point in name. Not as tangy as other Greek yogurt I’ve had. My urge to say, “Yopa! Gangnam Style!”
Nutrition Facts (with topping): 180 calories, 2 grams of fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 105 milligrams of sodium, 28 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 17 grams of sugar, 13 grams of protein, and 15% calcium.

YoCrunch Yopa! Toasted Almonds Greek Yogurt

Item: YoCrunch Yopa! Vanilla with Toasted Almonds
Purchased Price: 62 cents (on sale)
Size: 5.3 ounces
Purchased at: Safeway
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Surprisingly good (I thought it was going to be boring). Vanilla-y with a hint of almonds. Crunchy almonds. It’s got live and active cultures: it’s what digestive systems crave! Almonds provide more protein and vitamin E. Good source of protein.
Cons: May seem like a boring flavor to some. Not as tangy as other Greek yogurt I’ve had. Stop it with the exclamation points. See, I didn’t use one in the previous sentence; I totally could’ve. Has same amount of sugar as a Pop-Tart.
Nutrition Facts (with topping): 200 calories, 8 grams of fat, 0.5 grams of saturated fat, 55 milligrams of sodium, 18 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 16 grams of sugar, 15 grams of protein, 20% calcium, and 20% vitamin E.

YoCrunch Breakfast Blends with Post Fruity Pebbles

Item: YoCrunch Breakfast Blends with Post Fruity Pebbles
Purchased Price: $1.50 (on sale)
Size: 4 3.75-oz. cups
Purchased at: Safeway
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Might possibly be better than Fruity Pebbles in milk. Fat free. Gluten free. Crispy Fruity Pebbles cereal. Contains live and active cultures. Perfect Fruity Pebbles to yogurt ratio.
Cons: Should’ve been Cocoa Pebbles (which is better). Size is only enough to be part of a complete breakfast. Not a great source of calcium.
Nutrition Facts: 90 calories, 0 grams of fat, 80 milligrams of sodium, 19 grams of carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fiber, 13 grams of sugar, 3 grams of protein, and 10% calcium.

  1. Marvo,

    Did you try Yocrunch waffle yogurt yet? I want see a review of what you think of it and I haven’t yet tried it.

    I noticed that there is way more yogurt choices than 10 years ago. I remembered the yogurt choices was yocrunch, fruit on the bottom, and plain blended yogurts. Now there is so many choices: greek, crunchy mix-ins, drinkables, and fruit on the side I remembered the first time when I saw greek yogurt I was like “What is greek yogurt? Is that going be same just greek on it?”

  2. Pros: Liked the themed edition! Fruity Pebbles!

    Cons: “I totally could ‘of'”?? Marvo, you’re better than that.

    1. There is the Chobani Bites version- coffee yogurt with chocolate flakes. Very good, but tiny portion. I love coffee yogurt (used to be just Dannon, now there is Oikos Latte, but neither with crunchies).

  3. I tried the YoCrunch Yopa! Vanilla with Toasted Almonds. I enjoyed it enough that i purchased another container.
