I’m always curious about two things that advertise to be the same thing. Two brands, one 100 calorie greek yogurt.

IMG_5385Consumers across America participated in a national taste test and results show that they prefer the taste of Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry yogurt to Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry. Today I’m sharing a taste-off between the two to encourage you to try them both for yourselves!

IMG_5399Nutrition: This is something I look at for all yogurts. I don’t even buy fruit flavored yogurts too much anymore because of the added sugars. So the two things I mainly look at are the grams of sugar and the amount of protein.

Yoplait – 100 calories, 9g of sugar and 10g of protein. Fiber ???

Chobani – 100 calories, 7g sugar and 12g of protein. Also listed 5g of fiber.

IMG_5413Appearance: We judged this both on packaging and the actual yogurt.

Yoplait – Coloful and eye-catching, with a call out for Weight Watchers points. The yogurt had a pinkish dye to it to signal “strawberry.”

Chobani – Simple, with an emphasis on the nutrition. We also liked the message inside the lid. The yogurt itself looked more natural.

IMG_5434Flavor: Based on which yogurt embodied the strawberry flavor better.

Yoplait – had an evident strawberry flavor. The yogurt itself was flavored strawberry and had ribbons of fruit flavoring throughout.

Chobani – the flavor was much more subtle as the fruit was at the bottom and you mixed it in to get any strawberry flavor.

Taste/texture: Aside from just the flavor.

Yoplait – Tasted more artificial and had a lighter, whipped texture. Didn’t feel like typical greek yogurt.

Chobani – Tasted more natural and had the typical thickness of greek yogurt.

Ingredients: This is another big thing I look at for all groceries.

Yoplait – had a far longer list and uses fructose and sucralose as its sweeteners.

Chobani – a little shorter list and uses monk fruit, stevia leaf and evaporated cane juice as its sweeteners.

IMG_5443For someone who has gotten used to eating plain greek yogurt, and actually enjoys the almost “sour cream” like taste of regular greek yogurt, I would opt for the Chobani 100 greek yogurt vs. Yoplait. For me, the Yoplait was a little too sweet. For other people, the Yoplait might be great and the Chobani lacking in flavor.  Overall, Chobani won for us.
