Yoplait Greek Review and Giveaway

Contest now closed - Emily (no blog) is the winner - congrats!

A few years ago I went to Denmark to visit my cousins. For breakfast we had Greek yogurt over strawberries and drizzled with real maple syrup. I had never had Greek yogurt before, and didn't think I was going to care for the 'plain' flavor - I like my flavored yogurts! But this was so good! So thick and creamy...I remember Kayla enjoying her fair share of it as well.

When we returned to the states I tried to find some Greek yogurt and didn't have any luck; at least not in the 2 grocery stores available to me. I finally did find one (don't remember the brand) but it just didn't taste the same.

Now I've noticed numerous brands of Greek yogurt being offered in the grocery stores - and one of my favorite yogurt brands - Yoplait (specifically YoPlus!) - now has a new Greek yogurt on the market.

It comes in 4 flavors - Plain, Honey Vanilla, Strawberry, and Blueberry. I've tried Honey Vanilla and it delivers in taste and texture. It has that thick, creamy texture and smooth taste that I remember and the honey and vanilla are just subtle enough to give it a little bit of flavor.

Yoplait Greek has 0% fat and 12 grams of protein -twice the protein in leading yogurts.

Yoplait teamed up with Izabella Miko (who plays Greek Goddess Athena in Clash of the Titans) to encourage women to "nourish your inner goddess".

I have a "Nourish Your Inner Goddess" gift pack that includes two coupons for free Yoplait Greek yogurt*, a robe, slippers, and other pamper-yourself goodies!

*The coupon offer for a free cup of Yoplait Greek yogurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, and Tennessee.

To enter leave a comment on this post (making sure I have a way to contact you if you're the winner) telling me if you've tried Yoplait Greek yet, and if so what is your favorite flavor? If you haven't tried it yet what flavor do you want to try?

You can also print out this coupon for 30 cents off.

The coupons for free Yoplait Greek, Nourish Your Inner Goddess gift set, (for myself and a winner) were provided by Yoplait and MyBlogSpark.

Michelle, I just saw an episode of The Biggest Loser and they were eating Greek yogurt. I had never heard of it. I haven't found it here locally but I think they have it in Springfield. I am about to have a life changing experience and improving my health is the biggest effect. I MUST eat more protein, less fat and sugar. I am definitely going to become a Greek yogurt eater. I LOVE yogurt and I'm pretty sure that this will be a hit with me as well! Honey Vanilla sounds so yummy!
