Stonyfield Oikos Greek Yogurt + a Giveaway!

I've never been a huge yogurt fan. The tangy, almost-sour flavor has just never meshed well with me.

This past year, however, I discovered Greek yogurt - still a bit "tangy," but chocked full of protein - and most brands that make Greek yogurt pack it with "real" fruit (versus the artificial "fruit at the bottom" varieties).

So, when Stonyfield Farm asked me to review their Oikos Greek yogurt, I was immediately on board. I purchased three different flavors: blueberry, vanilla and plain.

The blueberry flavor tasted like it was made with fresh blueberries, and the creamy, thick texture was almost indulgent. Packed with 13 grams of protein, this cup also helped my stomach stay satisfied for the rest of the afternoon.

On a different day, I tried the vanilla for breakfast, and mixed in some frozen blueberries and Crispix cereal. The vanilla flavor wasn't incredibly apparent, but that could have been because of what I topped my yogurt with. Either way, the texture was still spot-on - and I loved how this cup had 15 grams of protein in it. 

The plain yogurt was - well, plain - but I still appreciated the texture and flavor. This (along with the vanilla flavor) could go well with just about anything. Next time I purchase it, I plan to spoon it over some waffles with sliced bananas for breakfast. 

In addition to letting me try three flavors of my choosing, Stonyfield has also generously offered to give one EE reader five coupons for five free single servings of their Oikos yogurt.

To enter, leave a comment on this post about what flavor of Oikos single serving yogurt you'd like to try and why. For an extra entry, tweet: "I just entered to win free @Stonyfield yogurt from @MichellePC!" I'll pick a winner Friday morning. Good luck!

Disclaimer: Stonyfield provided me with three coupons for three single servings of their Oikos yogurt. Despite their generosity, my opinions expressed in this post are honest and 100 percent my own.
