I’m always curious about two things that advertise to be the same thing. Two brands, one 100 calorie greek yogurt.
Consumers 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!
Nutrition: 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.
Yoplait 0, Chobani 1
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.
Yoplait 0, Chobani 2
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.

For 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.
