Chobani, Chobani, Chobani

(I just like saying Chobani, it’s fun! Try it.)

I don’t know where I first heard of Chobani — probably some foodie blog a few years ago, and I’d read that it was the best Greek yogurt ever (and had heard that people even make cross-border shopping trips to pick up the stuff) — so I was dying to try it, but it was only sold in the U.S. I even looked for it whenever I was stateside but I usually didn’t have a fridge in my hotel room so it just never worked out.

So I was postiively giddy to hear it was launching in Toronto.

I got my hands on a few containers last week…and my verdict?

It’s good…but I think it’d been built up so much from all the hype that I expected it to be the best yogurt I’d ever had, and like I said it’s just not blowing my mind.

I think people go bananas over the fact that it’s fat-free. Which, yes, I like. And while it may seem high in sugar, lactose tends to be high in sugar so I’m guessing much of the sugar content is likely from that (plus it’s natural sugar, which I much prefer to aspartame). It’s also high in protein (as Greek yogurts are) — two times the protein compared to regular yogurt.

Available in five flavours (Black Cherry, Strawberry, Peach, Pomegranate and Plain) at Loblaws, Fortinos, Superstore and Valu-Mart locations in Toronto.; $1.79 for 170 gram container, $8.59 for 907-gram container.
