Quick Review: Yoplait Greek Yogurt

I've been trying out various Greek Yogurts lately, trying to find one that I really like.  I posted an opportunity a couple of months ago for you to get a coupon for a free cup of Yoplait Greek Yogurt, I hope you took that opportunity.  I did.

I finally cashed in my coupon yesterday.  Having gotten burned by at least one Greek yogurt in the past, I only bought one cup (just in case) and I tried it this morning.

I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised.  Yoplait Greek Yogurt is a "fruit on the bottom" style yogurt, so I opened it up and mixed the blueberry from the bottom into the rest of the yogurt, then I tasted.  WOW!  It was really good and didn't have that really sharp bitter taste that many Greek yogurts have.  It was actually sweet and creamy, everything a good yogurt should be!  Tasting it, I thought for sure that the sugar content would be higher in this yogurt than in the other Greek yogurts I'd tried, but it wasn't.  It's just 20 grams of sugar and 25 total carbs (most others I've seen are closer to 30 sugars).  With just 150 calories and 0 fat, that's a nice combination, and did I mention the 14grams of protein!  This is good stuff.  I think I finally found a Greek yogurt that tastes good, is good for me, AND that won't break the bank!
