Chobani Review and Giveaway

Recently I contacted Emily over at Chobani to ask for the opportunity to review Chobani for my blog and host a giveaway.  She was kind enough to send me a case of Chobani so that I could have several flavors to sample.
I was so excited to find this box on my front porch!!!

Hello my lovelies!!

In the box were 11 containers of Chobani!!  They were as follows:

0% Black Cherry
0% Strawberry
0% Raspberry
0% Peach
0% Blueberry
0% Pomegranate
0% Lemon
0% Plain
2% Strawberry Banana
2% Pineapple
2% Plain

Oh where do I start?  I have talked about Chobani before as it has become the only yogurt that I eat.    Chobani tastes great and is so creamy!!  Unfortunately, the only flavors available to me are blueberry, strawberry, vanilla, and peach.  And since I usually buy it at Costco, even vanilla isn't available.  I was so excited to have all these other flavors to try.  I eat at least 1 container of Chobani a day; it is a mandatory part of my lunch. Occasionally I indulge in an extra Chobani in the evening too. It's that good! Now that I've been able to try some of the other Chobani flavors available, I can honestly say I will never ever go back to regular yogurt. Greek is it! Pineapple is my favorite 2%, blueberry is my favorite 0%! I really hope my local stores start carrying more flavors soon!


My next plan for Chobani is to try some of the recipes from their website or posted on other blogs.  Muffins, breads, pasta sauces.  All those things sound yummy!
Besides the great taste; why do I love Chobani?
  • It is packed with protein!  Each container has at least 14 grams of protein!
  • All the ingredients are recognizable and natural.
  • There are no preservatives in Chobani.
  • The sugars in each container come from only the fruit or evaporated cane juice, not processed sugar or high fructose corn syrup!  No artificial sweeteners!
  • Each container of 0% fruit flavored Chobani is 3 PointsPlus!
  • Chobani gives 10% of their profits to charities worldwide.

  14. Chobani is my absolute favorite yogurt! My "go to" flavor is the 0% vanilla which I usually mix with either fresh fruit or some Bear Naked Fit granola. I'm really loving the new Lemon flavor, too!

  24. I'm a follower! I wasn't sure about Chobani - I had only ever had honey with Greek yogurt and thought fruit with it might be strange, but I totally love it, and now it's part of my weekend breakfast routine! My favorites are blueberry or mango (I live in a Mexican neighborhood so mango is a big flavor here).

  25. I cant deal with fruit on the bottom yogurt, so I like the plain & vanilla. The only fruit one I like is pomegranate, but I have to close my eyes to stir it!

  40. I've never tried it before because I'm cheap haha but I think I would the pomegranate. If I win and end up liking it then I'm sure I will fork over the money for it.
