Review and Giveaway! Yoplait Spa Pack

yoplait greek logo

Woohoo, another BlogSpark! This time it’s the new thick and creamy, fat-free Greek Yoplait Yogurt, with 12 grams of protein per serving!

I received a free “Nourish Your Inner Goddess” prize pack from Yoplait and BlogSpark, including the items pictured below (not the girl, she’s mine) and 2 coupons, each good for one free cup of Yoplait Greek Yogurt. The opinions reflected in this post are my own. Nutritional information is from the product package.

aaayoplaitspagoddessI stopped by the store on the way home from an evening out with hubby to pick up some yogurt. Would you believe that we left it in the car?! All night?! Good thing I only bought one and still had a coupon!

The second time I made sure it went into the fridge immediately. I was curious if the fruit flavors were blended or fruit-on-the-bottom (the label doesn’t really say), so I purchased the “Blueberry.” If I had bothered to fully read the nutritional information, it wouldn’t have been a mystery:

aaayoplaitnutrition Notice the “Blueberry Puree?” You’ll also notice some other interesting ingredients, like “Milk Protein Concentrate,” “Vitamin A Acetate,” and “Vitamin D.” Much of the nutrition is value added. They’ve also added “Kosher Gelatin,” a thickener. Hmm? Methinks this is not really Greek strained yogurt.

Looks about like regular Yoplait when you open the cup:

But how does it taste?

About like regular Yoplait, but thicker and…grainier. Yep, it had a very subtle, grainy mouth feel. Not sure if that’s from the protein concentrate or the blueberry puree?

Overall impression: I might purchase Yoplait Greek Yogurt if I had a need to increase my protein intake without increasing my calorie intake…and it was on sale…and I had a coupon. (Price here at my local grocery store is $1.09)

But, and here’s the fun part, you might not have to take my word for it! BlogSpark and Yoplait have given me an identical prize pack to give away to one of my readers! The winner will receive this prize pack complete with 2 coupons for free Yoplait Greek Yogurt:

  3. I love Chobani Greek Yogurt, it'd be interesting to try Yoplait's version. I'd probably go with the blueberry as well.

    The spa pack would be great to save for a giveaway for my women's retreat in October.
