Ok, let’s be honest….
I love yogurt.
It internally pains me when my friends turn their noses up to yogurt, especially ones like Pineapple Chobani, or Stonyfield’s Banilla yogurt. HOW?! It just doesn’t make sense to me. In fact, I have a friend who won’t even try the yogurts I eat, because she “knows” she won’t like them. Hasn’t anyone ever taught them to “not judge a book by it’s cover”?!!
Anyway- now that my rant is over, let’s get back to the yogurt. I had been told by a commenter in the past to try this Athenos yogurt. So, the other day I saw the Athenos Greek Strained Strawberry Non Fat Yogurt, and decided to buy it and give it a try.
Here’s how it looked
The yogurt part is EXTREMELY thick. I think this is one of the thickest yogurts I have ever had. By itself, it’s a little tart, but not so tart where it induces lip-puckering and squishy faces like a lemon war head would do. It’s creamy and has a bit of tang.
Onto the fruit part, which went really well with the yogurt. I thought the amount was too small, but it ended up being just right. It wasn’t super sweet, and also had a bit of tartness to it, but I actually enjoyed it. It was a thick syrup/jelly-like side, that tasted like defrosted strawberries. There were tiny chunks of strawberries as well, that were sweeter than the rest of the fruity side that I enjoyed. Together, however, the two complimented very well with one another. Creamy, slightly sweet, and tart with a little bit of tanginess to it!
Another thing, even though I love Fage yogurt, it’s really hard to get all the fruit part out on the side. With this brand, I was able to get almost everything out since it was wider and I could fit my whole spoon on it. So yay for that! 🙂
4 stars. Wish it was a bit sweeter, but AWESOME thickness and creaminess!!! I would buy it again.
So…are you the type of person who won’t try something because you think you won’t like it? Or do you try any kind of food? Interested to hear! 🙂

Had this tonight with dinner! All the flavors are delicious! I like mine in the freezer for like half hour before I eat it 🙂
ahhh same! makes all the difference!! 🙂
I just found this brand because it was on sale as 10 for $10 at the local grocer!
I definitely have shot down foods because I thought I wouldn’t like it….but I ended up liking it anyways, or having a slight obsession with it. Hello, cottage cheese!
P.s.- The first thing I noticed about that shot was the nail polish 😉
mmm cottage cheese. my fav is friendship brand, in pineapple! 🙂
and ahhaha yay! love my bright colored nail polish 😛
Hm..I don’t know if I would try that. I like yogurt, but if a yogurt is THAT thick it actually makes me gag. lol. I love my yogurt creamy!
I agree with you about the fruit part being nice, but the Greek yogurt part is just strange to me and I didn’t like it. I’m not a big fan of the tang and thickness of Greek yogurt and very much prefer my mild and weak American yogurts. Oh well.
Great review by the way and now that I’ve perused the site (I found your site via a comment on Grub Grade about the Nutter Butter Blizzard; I did the review at wouldibuyitagain.com) and I really like it. Looks like you are eating a lot of the same things that I eat (Gnu Bars, Power Bars, Vitatops, etc.), so this one will definitely be a frequent visit for me. Keep up the good work!
hahhaha it WAS pretty thick- but worth a try! Although, i dont want to make you gag! haha. Let me knoe if you do try it! 🙂
hey, thanks!! And ooh didnt that nutter butter blizzard look amazing?? 🙂
and no biggie if your not a fan of greek yogurts, at least you tried it! I have friends who swoon over regular yogurt made with all those artificial sweeteners, and I just cant do it. tastes like chemicals to me!! haha 🙂
I am willing to try just about anything. I ate octopus for the first time at a family brunch this weekend. It was actually pretty tasty!
