Stumbling into the house, weighed down by five overloaded grocery bags to avoid a second trip uphill to my car, and sweating from the heat of this Texas summer, all I could think about was breaking into one of the Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurts buried in one of the bags.
You've probably guessed this is going to be a review, so here's the disclosure: I was lucky enough to be chosen as a participant in the Vibrant Influencer Network Healthy Choice campaign, which means I was sent coupons for free products and will be paid to express my honest opinions about them.
Rest assured I am giving you my own opinion.
I signed up for this review because, especially as I've gotten older, I focus on nutrition when making food choices and am always on the lookout for new, healthy products, especially snacks.
So as soon as the groceries were put away, I pulled out one of the blueberry-flavored frozen yogurts. They come packaged in three 100-calorie servings.
Now, I'm a sucker for fortune-cookie fortunes and quippy quotes, so the top of the container caught my eye and I had to take a picture before diving in.
Cute, huh? Later, I snapped one of the strawberry-flavored container tops.
But the review was for the yogurt and I wanted to eat it while it was still frozen, so I peeled back the cute top and dove in.
It really was very smooth and creamy...and very refreshing after being out in the heat. There weren't any whole blueberries in it, just chips blended in, but the flavor was rich and sweet.
Actually, almost too sweet for me, since I have cut way back on my sugar intake. So the serving size was perfect.
The only frozen yogurt I've eaten before this was at one of the soft-serve yogurt shops, where it tastes more like ice cream than yogurt. This definitely retains the tart yogurt flavor, so if you're expecting an ice-cream-taste experience, you may be disappointed.
But, if like me you enjoy traditional yogurt, I think you would enjoy it as an occasional treat...especially after a trip to the grocery store on a hot August afternoon.
(Next time, I'm going to try the Dark Fudge Swirl, winner of the "Best Night Bite" in Shape Magazine's 2013 Snack Award.)
