Marcia said... Please enter me in your giveaway. I love my mother because she is still eager to learn and try new things (especially foods) at age 79. She wants to try Greek yogurt but our little local store does not carry it. So, I want the Greek yogurt for my mother.
Congrats marcia! I've sent an email so please get back to me with your contact info!
I had a really awesome Birthday and now I want to share with you!
Recently Yoplait and My Blog Spark sent me a “Nourish Your Inner Goddess” gift pack so I could try out the new Yoplait Greek Yogurt. The gift pack included: a super soft bath wrap, slippers, other bath goodies, and coupons for 2 free Yoplait Greek yogurt cups.
I have noticed all the Greek yogurts popping up in my grocery stores. With my 2 coupon vouchers I picked up a strawberry and a honey vanilla flavored cup (blueberry and plain also available). The packaging boasts of having 2x the protein (12 grams to be exact) of leading yogurts and 0% fat.
For being fat free (plus having more protein) I thought it was pretty tasty. I didn't notice any after taste (like with Splenda) in either flavor. I did notice that the strawberry flavor was a bit more smooth than the honey vanilla flavor. What I loved most (besides the 12 grams of protein) was that these yogurt cups aren't overly sweet. The Greek strawberry 6oz cup has 18grams of sugar when compared to the Original Yoplait strawberry flavor which has 27grams of sugar per 60z cup. The Greek strawberry only has 130 calories per 6oz cup making it a pretty good snack!
While I really enjoyed this yogurt I don't know how often I will be buying it. My local grocery store has them priced at $1.10 each! I know I've seen them for less at Walmart. Hopefully Yoplait will continue to roll out the coupons for this yogurt to make it more affordable. In fact you can print off a $0.30 coupon here courtesy of Yoplait! This coupon would get you a great deal if your grocery store doubles coupons (sadly mine doesn't.)
So leave me a comment for your entry to win your very own “Nourish Your Inner Goddess” gift pack. Tell me anything, which flavor would you like to try? Why you love your mom so much? How do you relax? anything really! I'll pick a winner on Saturday evening.
Update 5/3: Good question by one of my readers, I'm not sure if Yoplait/My Blog Spark is willing to ship internationally so I will double check and get back to you ASAP. You may still leave a comment just in case they do!
Update 5/4: I was informed that this giveaway is for residents of the continental US, further more they will be unable to deliver to a PO Box. Sorry to my international readers.
