Yoplait vs. Chobani Taste Off

Thursday, May 8, 2014


If I am being completely honest I have never been a fan of Greek yogurt. I had tried Chobani multiple times and just never saw what all the hype was about, but when Yoplait introduced there Greek yogurt and set out to do a Taste Off, how could I resist getting in on the action. 

This was a blind taste test so I emptied the yogurts out of the containers into glass bowls and stirred them up! You can immediately tell the difference in color. The Yoplait is much more pink and has a much sweeter smell. The Chobani doesn't have much color and the smell did nothing for me. It reminded me more of a cream cheese smell then anything else.

So I started with my Mom... She buys Chobani regularly and had already proclaimed it the winner before we even began. After trying them both, she surprised herself by choosing Yoplait as the winner!
She said it had a much smoother and a more sweet flavor to it.  She is also a Weight Watchers girl and LOVED that the Yoplait had the points labeled right on the container! 

Now onto the next generation... This is my niece and her bestie. 
My niece is like my mom and swears by Chobani as well but after the taste test she realized what she was missing. Both of these two beauties preferred the flavor of Yoplait over the Chobani. 
They both agreed that the texture and the sweetness of the Yoplait is what set it apart. 

And then it was onto the tiny tots... First up was my nephew who is basically a human garbage disposal. He will literally eat anything!! He insisted upon eating both the entire Chobani and the entire Yoplait before making a decision.  :) So we all sat waiting patiently for his highness to rule over his favorite. It did not take him long. He ate the Chobani and then only a few bites into the Yoplait he started giggling and proclaimed that he "likes this one wayyyy more". After they were both finished he said he liked the Yoplait more because it tasted more like dessert. 

Next was Bella's turn... She is not much of a yogurt fan unless it comes in a frozen tube so I was skeptical if she would actually go through with it. 
 She is like her Mommy and if it doesn't smell good... She isn't interested! 
She smelled the Yoplait and the Chobani and immediately explained that she was not going to try the Chobani because it smelled yucky! She did eat about half of the Yoplait and said that it was yummy and she liked that she could see more fruit in it. Although she didn't try the Chobani, Yoplait was clearly that hands down winner for her. 

So there you have it!!! Yoplait was clearly the winner in our neck of the woods. 
Yoplait Greek 100 comes in 12 delicious flavors. "Try the better tasting Greek! In a national taste test, Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry beat Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry. 
So whether you swear by Chobani or if you are on Team Yoplait... I say go for it!!! Take the challenge. Join the taste off... You never know what you might be missing out on.
