Chobani greek yogurt seems to be slowly winning over the internet. Every time I read an internet thread about yogurt (yes, there are such things!) it doesn’t take long for someone to go, “I’m not really into yogurt, but I really liked Chobani when I tried it.” Of course, I’m ad-libing the general response but it’s the sentiment that I’ve come to agree with since getting a chance to try Chobani myself.
For those who don’t know, Chobani is a premium greek yogurt made with natural ingredients. The fruit flavors are made with purees of the actual fruit and the yogurt itself comes from culture milk. There’s a good assortment of flavors beyond the usual berry treatment, such as passion fruit, blood orange, apple cinnamon and mango. There’s also low-fat and non-fat varieties as well, so lots to choose from.
There’s no gelatin, so vegetarians who aren’t opposed to dairy can eat this. In addition, it’s free of corn, nuts, soy, and gluten, so anyone without lactose intolerance should be able to enjoy as well. Oh, it’s also kosher certified, so there’s that too!
Chobani has a nice rich, creamy texture that other brands don’t usually achieve, which is likely why it costs an extra 20% more than the other brands. The real fruit really compliments the yogurt well. From a nutritional and taste stand point, there’s not a lot else to say other than this is some really awesome yogurt. One thing I would slight Chobani for is the fruit at the bottom, which isn’t the most appetizing looking on its own, a problem other yogurt brands have as well. The blueberry and strawberry banana flavors seem to be the primary offenders but everything tastes just fine once mixed together.
With enough variety for everyone, Chobani greek yogurt is a product that is worth the extra cost. Easily one of the best, if not the best, mass produced yogurts on the market, it’s hard not to recommend this to everyone in earshot. Give it a try if you don’t believe me!
