Chobani Greek yogurt – so what makes it different from regular yogurt? Well did you know that because of the special straining process used to make it, it has twice as much protein as regular yogurt? Chobani Greek Yogurt is also naturally lower in sodium, sugar, and carbohydrates.
I love the fact that they have now created a line just for the little ones: ‘Chobani Champions‘, the first ever Greek Yogurt made for kids. It’s available in two flavors; Honey-Nana and VeryBerry. Chobani Champions is packed with 100% natural ingredients and is free of preservatives, artificial flavors and you won’t find any milk that was treated with synthetic growth hormones in it.
We’ve never had Greek Yogurt before, so trying Chobani Champions was a new experience. The VeryBerry was our favorite flavor, it was good. We weren’t that crazy about the Honey-Nana we thought it was quite tart, but I think it was because of this: we’re too used to sweet yogurts with artificial flavors and sugar. See Chobani Champions doesn’t use sweeteners in their yogurt, which of course makes it a great snack. I think it just took a few cups of Chobani to change the taste of our palate (the Honey-Nana was the first one we tried). The more I think about it, I’m not sure why yogurt needs to have sucralose or artificial sweeteners in it.
Beginning this month, consumers can celebrate their everyday “Champions” on www.chobani.com/champions. There, visitors can upload a photo of their ‘champion’ to the online gallery for a chance to be selected as the “Champ of the Month.” In return the winning Champ will be featured on the home page for the entire following month and will win a free case of yogurt and coupons.

We also got to try the new flavors that are in the Chobani line: 2% Mango, 0% Black Cherry and 0% Lemon. With each flavor we tried the more we liked it. The thing I liked the best about the Chobani yogurts is that it is thick. It’s just that way naturally, there isn’t any gelatin or animal-based thickeners in it to hold it together – which also makes it a great, high-protein option for vegetarians.
Final verdict: Personally, I am more satisfied with the Chobani Champions as an option for kids than the other ‘kids yogurts’ sold. I don’t think the other ones are horrible; however, after our tastes adjusted to the Chobani, we just thought it was creamier and left us feeling fuller. The fact that they are low in fat, and high in protein, from a nutritional standpoint makes them a better choice, and also because they are free of any additives.
