A few weeks ago I was contacted by Chobanito see if I would like to review some of their yoghurts which are new to the UK. After reading the rave reviews on these yoghurts on so many American blogs I was super excited to get the opportunity to try these:
I was sent 0% fat free yoghurt with blood orange, black cherry, peach, pomegranate, raspberry and plain.
As a rule I am always dubious about anything that is fat free as in the past I have often found that they are pumped with artificial sweeteners, additives and flavourings. However Chobani yoghurts of artificial sweeteners and preservatives and uses naturally sourced ingredients.
Since this particular style of Greek yoghurt is strained, which helps it produce a thick creamy texture however for me for Greek yoghurt the consistency of these yoghurts isn’t thick enough.

Now I am always honest with everything in my blog including my reviews and this one is going to be no different. They generally taste great although a tad too sweet for my liking. The super sweet taste may have something to do with the very high sugar content, especially in the flavoured varieties. In one serving there is up to 21g of sugar, which really surprised me.
Due to the high sugar content I only had these yoghurts in the afternoon at work when I needed an extra push to get me through the rest of the afternoon. I wasn’t exactly bouncing off the walls after all of that sugar, but it did help on some days. However, the plain variety does contain less sugar and I did enjoy it for breakfast with some fresh fruit and granola.
Would I buy these yoghurts? Because I prefer not to have so much sugar in my diet I personally don’t think I would be looking to buy the layered fruit pots. The only yoghurt from the range that I may consider buying is the plain yoghurt as an alternative to my usual Total Greek yoghurt.
Have you tried Chobani yoghurts before? What did you think of them?
Do you prefer full fat or fat free yoghurts?
