What are Yasso Pecan Pie Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars?
They are brown butter frozen Greek yogurt bars with a cinnamon graham swirl and honey glazed pecan pieces. Pecan Pie is a new seasonal flavor that joins the returning Pumpkin Cheesecake variety.
How are they?
I have to admit this is the first time I’ve had any Yasso product. I’ve been staying away partly because of a review we wrote of the brand’s original product back in 2012. But now I’ve been drawn in partly because Yasso’s recent package designs have been super adorbs!
Unfortunately, the bars I purchased were not adorbs. They were adeforms. Not Yasso’s fault, though. I imagine something happened to them while being transported to my local Target or while they sat at the bottom of my cart as I casually coasted through EVERY FOOD AISLE and the men’s deodorant section at my local Target.

The horror! It’s like Michael Myers’ face on a stick!
Good thing my taste buds can only taste and hear because seeing what deformed thing they were being smothered by might’ve made them not like it as much as they did. My blind taste buds enjoyed every moment they had with the brown butter frozen Greek yogurt, cinnamon graham swirl, and honey glazed pecan pieces. The swirl gives the bar a nice sweet cinnamon punch and the brown butter froyo has a toffee-like flavor. The pecans, which there were many of, added a nice textural contrast to the creamy frozen Greek yogurt and the sticky swirl. My sweet tooth approves!
I do wish the swirl had a bit more texture. Perhaps, since it’s a cinnamon graham swirl, it could’ve been a little gritty like there were graham cracker bits in it.
Is there anything else you need to know?
With the bars being made of Greek yogurt, they contain live and active cultures, and the nutrition facts won’t make you feel guilty when you eat one.
I’m writing this review at the beginning of fall, so there’s a lot more new seasonal products coming up. But, so far, Yasso’s Pecan Pie Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars have set a high bar for whatever other new fall products get released.

I have bought yasso quite often. They do not hold up to me either. I’m quite lucky if I get a normal shaped one. Lol
I got these, right before I checked out 🙂 and all of them are perfectly shaped. I LOVE the inner package sleeve that the bars come in, too!
I’ve never had anything Yasso – but these look amazing.
