There’s just pineapples. Not much to flip, Chobani. (Spotted by Rachel C at Target.)
This isn’t the same Chobani Banana on the Bottom Greek Yogurt you probably disliked years ago and because of that was discontinued. (Spotted by Rachel C at Target.)
If you like Chobani Drink Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain, you’re getting live and active cultures, protein, and probably wet. (Spotted by Rachel C at Target.)
I’ve placed the Elli Quark photos in an order that shows my interest in the flavors, starting with the one I want to eat the most. They are also arranged alphabetically. (Spotted by Amanda Y at Target.)

Oh! So after Greek, Australian and Icelandic yogurt “Quark” is finally a thing?
DAMN IT! I thought i could be the one bringing the joy of Quark and fruit to the US… 🙁
If you can call ‘brownie batter’ flavored goup loaded with stevia and erythrytol the kind of product that Americans deserve, then I guess you’re right.
1. My bad. I just skim-read the website of ellis and thought “no sugar and artifical sweeteners” was also referring to erythrytol and stevia. As said my bad!
2. But that brings my idea of bringing real Quark to the US (with sugar!) alive again! ^^
3. To be fair and honest here: Yep, that’s exactly what you guys deserve. Why? ’cause most of the problem is selfmade. (And i’m not speaking of the disgusting and awfully tasting stevia as alternative to sugar)
Everyone wants to be a “hipster” and wants to be part of the next big “health thing”. So let’s just go gluten free (’cause a handful of people are alergic to it), let’s go vegan, ’cause… yeah… why exactly?
Fat is bad? but protein is good? hell yeah let’s make fat free and skim greek yogurts! (seriously… i had trouble to get the less calorie part of the whole greek yogurt wave, ’cause when i go to the supermarket we just have the original full fat version here). Just checked and even our “flip yogurts” (mueller corner) are full fat and don’t have a diet version (and especially not the greek yogurt versions). No artificial colors, ’cause they are soooooo bad (for our kids), though i was growing up with it and was practically just eating this one “bad” product as a kid… and am still alive…
So yeah… it’s not what i want you to have and i hope this fact will change in the future, but for now… it’s what you asked for. Sorry 🙁
(and i’m not saying that this is an US only problem. we have the same shit here and i’m pretty sure every single country has something similar. But you asked :blushes: )
I looked at the web site for not a long time and read no artificial colors/flavors/sugar but then at the store I read ingredients list and saw it had erthrytol(and won’t go into the TMI reason I can’t eat anything with this ingredient in it.
I for one would rather have pure cane sugar in a product instead of Stevia(even though it is natural I regard it no better than Splenda) even honey would be better to make it sweeter without sugar substitutes like stevia and erthrytol.
I just can’t keep track of all these new pretentious yogurts hitting the shelves. I just stick to normal Yoplait with normal fruit flavors for a decent value.
I prefer any Chobani or Fage yogurts to Yoplait because they don’t have artificial colors/flavors/sugars or gelatin in them(which for me gives yogurt a weird texture and flavor and if you are a lacto-ovo vegetrian you can’t eat Yoplait.
Love this thank you for sharing lots of new items. I recently ventured away from Fage to try some new things in my routine. The Australian one had gelatin so didnt care for it… tastes great thought but if its going to be full fat and full sugar Id rather a pint of you know what :).
The icelandics are like greek concentrate cant get over the taste although texture is good. I could have this once in awhile you kind of have to play with the flavors they come through very light.
The Quark was not bad. I was expecting much worse the way everyone talks about stevia anything these days. If I didnt read it was in there I probably would have never known. Other than Fage I like this texture the best its not as dry as some of the really concentrated ones.
Im going to have to search some more for the apple pie one couldnt find it at my target…although they had a yoplait apple pie…
I eat Quark Elli 0%, fat free Fage, Dannon lit n fit greek,and once in a VERY BLUE MOON….Fage crossovers. all are filling and amazing. no guilt. if its pretentious and ‘hipsterish’ to indulge in these…then im lord of the foodie hipsters. i dont mind being a consumerist of media culture ?
