Chobani {Review & Giveaway}

I’ll admit it, I typically devour oatmeal for breakfast. At my office I would grab a cup on the way to my desk and consume it while checking my e-mail. But when I heard the buzz about Chobani, I had to try it. When I was living in London I chowed down on plain Greek yogurt frequently, but over a dozen flavor options? That was too much to pass up.

There were flavors I had never imagined; lemon and pomegranate in a yogurt? I’ll try anything once. So I piled all twelve containers in my fridge and began to taste test them one by one. First I brought the raspberry to work for breakfast. I should note I’m not a fan of raspberries or have not been in the past. Well this yogurt changed that, once I realized that the fruit was on the bottom (I’m a bit of a dunce), I began to really enjoy it. A refreshing change from my oatmeal past.

With several of the other flavors I chose to add granola or broken up graham crackers for a bit of a crunch. I’ve also seen other crunchy concoctions; supposedly peanut butter Captain Crunch tastes fantastic mixed in.  After eating it I found that I was satiated for several hours; I could go from breakfast to lunch without craving a snack.

It also makes for a perfect afternoon snack.  Around four when I was hankering for the good stuff less healthy snack options, I grabbed a yogurt and enjoyed the protein packed treat. Most flavors have 28% of your daily need of protein if not more (plain has 36%). And throw in some additional fruit for extra deliciousness.

The Verdict: Chobani makes a fantastic breakfast, snack, or ingredient. Really, you can consume it anytime of day. Spice it up by adding crunchy pieces or additional fruit. Use it to substitute sour cream or other ingredients in recipes. You can’t go wrong. I should admit, there were some flavors that I was less keen on, but that is to be expected with such a wide variety.

And now for the giveaway:
Chobani is an absolutely fabulous company and they want to offer one lucky reader a case of their own. You can receive a variety pack or get your favorite flavor.
