Shelvic Exam: Chobani Champions

First, let me profess my love for Chobani greek style yogurt – YUM! It is certainly a fave around the Grotto house. My kids especially love the thick Greek yogurt texture and real fruit chunks in the Chobani line of yogurt.

I was excited to hear that Chobani launched a kids line of Greek yogurt late last year which they call Chobani Champions. They come in four flavors: Verryberry, Strawnana, Honeynana and Chocolate. All 40z cups contain 110 calories except for the chocolate variety which is 120 calories. Champions boast 5 active cultures for digestive wellness and all fruit varieties contain real fruit – very healthy, indeed!

My daughters (Madison (11), Katie (12),and Chloe (15)) taste-tested all flavors of the Chobani Champions except for the Honeynana and here are the results.

My wife Sharon and I also tried all flavors, enjoyed them, but thought they could be a tad sweeter for the kiddies. None-the-less, two of the daughters were not that impressed and asked us to keep the fridge stocked with the regular Chobani though Madison would like to see Veryberry Champions again, berry soon!

    Sounds like a lot of calories, I know my dietitian would flip if I ate 110 calories in one sitting like that.😉 Plus, I can’t find this yogurt anywhere, maybe it is at Whole Foods but they are usually a little more pricey.

    Lovin this blog, you are so consistent. =)

      Ah, not so gentle Ben. 110 calories in 1 sitting is like a pimple on an elephant’s butt. Uh…well maybe that’s the wrong analogy but my point is that a Chobani Champion is a perfect sized snack for most women and a good start on a snack for guys. You may eat this in full confidence, Ben. And if your dietitian gives you any hassle, send him\her over to the “Guyatitian” – I’ll set ’em straight!

        Seriously, 110 calories is too much? I eat the regular at 160 calories as a snack. I thought this yogurt was too thin. The original is thick and that’s what I love about it. I am completely and unapologetically addicted to Chobani pineapple. All 160 calories of it.

    Hey Gia!

    No, 110 calories is not too much – which was exactly the point I made with Ben. I couldn’t agree with you more, Gia. Give me the original Chobani, anyday and I LOVE the pineapple, too! Thanks for your input!
