Chobani Review

Dear Canadian yogurt lovers, I have some great news…Chobani has arrived in Canada!

I recently learned that Chobani – a yogurt widely touted on some of my favourite health food blogs – has come to Canada (thanks for the heads up Morgan!).  After mentioning this on twitter I was quickly rewarded with a message from Chobani saying they’d love to send me some.

The next day, guess what was delivered to my apartment doorstep?

Pretty sweet.  I love the little insulated lunch box and was excited to try the peach, cherry, pomegranate and strawberry flavours.

I immediately dug into the cherry.  My impression?  Not quite as thick as I had hoped, but a nice flavour and a satisfying snack.  To be honest I’m more of a high fat plain greek yogurt kind of gal so I’m a little critical.  I prefer no sugar, a thick consistency, and the option to top it all off with Canadian maple syrup.  But still, I liked these.  The fruit at the bottom wasn’t too sweet, had a nice flavour, and reminded me of the Muller yogurts I was obsessed with when I lived in Ireland.

For my second yogurt I froze the pomegranate in the freezer for a few hours to enjoy after dinner.  This was much better!  Simple, satisfying, and maybe a better option than the bacon bark I’ve been eating after dinner.

The strawberry and peach were snuck into the freezer for sweet treats later, while I enjoyed the best of all…the plain chobani! While I normally wouldn’t buy 0% fat, it’s high in protein and makes a great post workout snack.

It’s also thick and creamy and perfect with a big Canadian drizzle of maple syrup and a handful of nuts. I also learned it makes a perfect sub for sour cream if you’re out!

Thank you to Chobani for letting me try your delicious goods!  Welcome to Canada!
