Total Basset Case: Berry vs. Berry

Apr 24, 2014

Berry vs. Berry

This story was sponsored by Yoplait, but the best yogurt was determined by me.

My colleagues at work can attest to my love obsession of Greek yogurt topped with the best homemade granola ever.
Every. single. day.
10am on the dot, I whip up a bowl.
And sometimes at night too with agave and fresh fruit.
To say the least, I've tried a LOT of Greek yogurt in my day and there have been misses and hits.

So when given the chance to do a taste test between Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry and Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry you can say I was just a little excited.
And to make things 100% fair, Mister switched up the cups while I was blind folded.
But before I dug in, I removed the lids and mixed them up.
The Chobani did not have much fruit to mix up and the Yoplait had a lot more fruit to mix in. 

And now for the taste test.
Excuse the blurriness - these are legit action shots.
And also I started laughing because Mister was taking a million shots in a row and I knew I was looking ridiculous.
Just be thankful you don't have to see the outtakes.
(and these shots make me want to repaint that wall...)

And my favorite was....drumroll....
Yoplait!
Which, in truth, really surprised me.  I am usually a Chobani girl and often get the big boxes of them from Costco.  But, to me, the Chobani Simply 100 was very artificial tasting and had a strange texture.
The Yoplait also had a bit of an artificial taste but not nearly as much as the Chobani and it was much fruiter and sweeter.
But with both, you can't beat 100 calories or the amount of protein that Greek yogurt packs!
And! Yoplait comes in 12 flavors, you can taste a new one every day!

So now it's your turn!
Have you tried either of these?
Do you have a preference?

And next time you eat yogurt, don't forget to top it with the best granola EVER.

I'm a Chobani girl, but I agree that the 100 calorie cups taste really artificial. Honestly I'm not sure of the point of them though, since the flavor I eat every day (strawberry) is only 120 calories and way tastier. Nice to hear I'm not the only extremely predictable Greek yogurt/granola eater though... every.single.day. My fave.

I need to try the Yoplait because I can't do the Chobani. Can not do it. The texture makes me gag. I also need to make the granola since we are finally (mostly) settled!

OMG. So I normally buy from Trader joe's but I was in a hurry last week and just got some of the chobani. I thought it tasted weird, but I thought I was just a yogurt snob lol. I'm glad it wasn't just me! Plus, was not a fan of the fruit in the bottom like that. I will need to try the yoplait
