Guess what’s in the box!
Any guesses as to what’s in the box?
If you guessed Chobani Greek Yogurt, you would be right!
A HUGE THANK YOU to Tiffany Gray at Chobani for being kind enough to send some yummy yogurt my way!
All the flavors from front to back: peach, plain, blueberry, vanilla, and strawberry. Yum!
So what is the difference between regular yogurt and Greek yogurt?
- It is strained yogurt, so it has a thicker texture, although it is still very creamy.
Some of Chobani’s nutrition facts:
- High in protein
- Good source of calcium
- Live & Active Cultures
- All Natural
As an example, here are the nutrition facts for the strawberry fruit on the bottom yogurt. For complete nutrition info for all other flavors, click on the “Our Products” tab at the top of Chobani’s website.
Also, Chobani Greek Yogurt comes in various sizes. , depending on the flavor. Sizes include:
- 6 oz.
- 16 oz.
- 32 oz.
Here are a few awesome ways to enjoy the fruit on the bottom and plain yogurts.
1.) Top with fresh fruit.
- It’s just so perfect – top the strawberry yogurt with strawberry slices, the peach yogurt with peach slices, and the blueberry yogurt with fresh blueberries.
- Or, you could take the vanilla or plain yogurts and top it with any fresh fruit you like.
2.) If the particular fruit you like is out of season, perhaps try topping it with frozen fruit.
- Frozen strawberry and peach slices, frozen blueberries.
- Then there are frozen raspberries, blackberries.
- The possibilities are endless.
- Just make sure to thaw the frozen fruit a little first, okay
3.) All on it’s own!
And here is a picture taken from a different angle.
Here’s how to enjoy the plain flavor, if you are not used to it:
4.) Drizzle and mix in a little honey or jam for a touch of sweetness.
If you would like to be able to just enjoy the plain flavor itself:
5.) Gradually diminish the amount of honey or jam you use as a sweetener, until you no longer need it.
6.) Use plain yogurt in place of sour cream.
And here is all the yogurt arranged in a nice pretty circle.
Other ways to enjoy Chobani yogurt:
7.) Add some granola on top for some crunch.
8.) Have it with a bowl of cereal on the side.
And a picture of the same arrangement, but taken from a different angle.

9) Turn it into a popsicle!
- Mix the yogurt, stick a popsicle stick in the yogurt, then freeze.
- Run the bottom of the yogurt container under warm water to loosen up the yogurt.
- Then take the yogurt out of the container and enjoy!
10) Try it as Italian Ice!
- Just freeze, then thaw a little bit!
- I don’t think you even have to mix the yogurt first, as the cold temperature kind of dulls the sour flavor quite a bit.
- Then dig in! Makes a nice, icy treat!
Edited to add:
What I think of all the flavors:
Fruit on the bottom:
- The sweetest of all the flavors (not counting the honey flavor, which I have not tried)
- Probably the most appealing to people because of the sweetness.
- If you like regular fruit on the bottom yogurt, you will like these Greek yogurts because they taste very similar and are creamy, but have a thicker texture.
- Sweet enough on it’s own. This is how I usually eat it.
- Sometimes I add fresh fruit to it.
- Peach is my favorite, I think it tastes a little less sweet than the strawberry and blueberry fruit on the bottom yogurts.
- Contains less sugar than the fruit on the bottom yogurts.
- It might take a little getting used to, so you might want to sweeten it up a bit at first.
- I sweetened it up a little bit with some jam and fresh fruit.
- Blogged about it here.
- Contains about half the sugar of the vanilla flavor, so only 7 grams in a 6oz container.
- If you are not accustomed to plain yogurt, you will probably think it is very sour tasting.
- You’ll probably have to sweeten it up a little bit at first, then gradually decrease the amount of sweetener you use.
- A lot of people actually eat the plain yogurt without any added sweetener. I think you just have to become accustomed to the taste.
- I sweetened it up with some jam and fruit, and really liked it.
- Only had this once, and was surprised to find the texture to be comparable to that of Fage, which is more thick than creamy.
- The texture took some getting used to at first, but I really like it.
- Blogged about it here.
In total, Chobani has 8 different flavors.
Nonfat: blueberry, strawberry, peach, honey, plain
The flavors I still have left to try:
- The honey flavored yogurt, lowfat plain, and original plain.
- I have never tried adding honey to yogurt, so I would love to try the honey flavored yogurt.
- The lowfat plain and original plain have a higher percentage of fat, so I would like to try these and see how they differ in texture and taste from the nonfat plain.
Here is a list of stores that currently carry Chobani Greek Yogurt.
If you’ve seen Chobani in the stores but have not tried it yet:

I introduced a couple people to Chobani Greek Yogurt….and they loved it!
- I gave some of my yogurts to a couple people to try since they had never seen or tried it before.
- They tried it and exclaimed, ”Oh my gosh, that Chobani yogurt was soooooo good! I love it! It was really, really, really good!”
- So good, in fact, that they went out and bought some today!
