Yoplait Go-Gurt Dunkers are the brand’s attempt to get children to eat more yogurt, which in turn will help them grow, build strong bones, and allow them to brag at school how they got this cool, new product instead of some passe tube yogurt.
I picked up two varieties —- vanilla yogurt with chocolate graham sticks and strawberry yogurt with honey graham sticks. Yes, they’re not the most creative flavor names for a product line named Dunkers. No Chilla Choco Vanilla or Slammin’ Graham Strawberry? Missed opportunity, Yoplait.
There’s also a cotton candy variety I was unable to obtain at my local Target, which is unfortunate because, of the three, it’s the one I wanted the most.
Look, it’s yogurt and crackers. I imagine the dairy part is hard to mess up for Yoplait because, with decades of experience, it has yogurt down. It could make a decent batch of the stuff with its eyes closed, hands tied behind its back, and Gilbert Gottfried shouting obscenities at it. And that proof is in the pudding, I mean, yogurt. There aren’t any fruit chunks or vanilla bean specks floating in their respective ‘gurts, but they taste like what I’ve experienced with Yoplait. I know, not surprising.
So it really comes down to the crackers. They have a light sweetness that’s fine without dipping them into anything. The honey graham ones aren’t quite Honey Maid quality. They’re slightly blander, but it lets the strawberry stand out. As for the chocolate graham sticks, they have a light cocoa flavor that comes through a little when eating it with the vanilla yogurt.
I imagine the most important question you might be asking yourself is: If I want to steal one from my kids, which one should I pilfer?
If I wanted to ensure my place in Hell and steal Yoplait Go-Gurt Dunkers from your kids, I’d go for the strawberry one. The vanilla one is just, well, too vanilla. If the chocolate sticks stood out more, it would be a different story.
Also, for a brief moment, the vanilla yogurt and chocolate graham tasted as if I was eating an old school Kraft cheese and crackers. You know, the ones that have the red stick to spread the cheese. For reals. It’s fleeting, but I was able to recreate that flavor a few more times.
If you’re trying to get your kids to eat yogurt, Yoplait’s Go-Gurt Dunkers are a tempting way to do so. Too bad General Mills and Mondelez couldn’t do some cross promotion and include Teddy Grahams. Oh wait, dunking Teddy Grahams head first into yogurt is too Salem-esque. Never mind.
