The much anticipated P28 review! They sent me a cute little variety pack of products to try for free  including a slice of their protein bread, protein wrap, protein bagel, and their protein peanut butter spreads!

I was definitely excited to try these products, especially the spreads. I am a HUGE peanut butter fan, but seldom buy or eat it since I have NO self control around the stuff ( I am talking jars gone in less than a week…wonder who ate them on me right? hehe) So the fact that these at least had some protein in them made eating them much less guilt free, coupled with the fact they are what I assume was in 2 tbsp portions, since they came in these teeny jars!

And I am talking teeny! I couldn’t even fit my spoon in it, too wide! Which was a blessing and a curse, since it made me have even MORE portion control.

So…naturally I tried all these first. They come in a few flavors, and P28 was nice enough to send me all of them.

Almond– this one was creamy, not too salty, and pretty yummy. I have had almond butter in the past, and detected no taste difference than this almond butter versus a non-protein brand. The almond flavor was strong and it was slightly sweet. Pretty good! 4 stars

White Chocolate– Ohhhh was I waiting for this one. I LOVE those flavored peanut butters that involve chocolate (who doesn’t?!). It certainly did not disappoint. It was creamy and smooth, with very subtle sweetness. I almost wish it was a tad bit sweeter, but it was also comforting that it wasn’t too sweet since I don’t want to be eating a lot of added sugar. The after taste of white chocolate was pleasant. 4 stars

Banana Raisin– This one was okay. It was detectably more oily than the other flavors, not that sweet, with a very slight banana flavor. It almost tasted like banana oil placed in unsalted peanut butter. There were a few raisins in the mix, and given my small sample, I would say if I had a larger jar there would be a fair amount of raisins in the mix. They were necessary since they added a slight sweetness. However, not a winner with me. 3 stars

Signature Blend- This one was interesting! There were nuts, raisins, and I think some cinnamon and nutmeg in the mix. It almost tasted like an almond and peanut butter mix. It was darker than the other spreads, a little more pasty, but also had a crunch. There were a few bits of dried fruit, which I assume was raisins, which added a nice sweetness. I do wish there was a pinch of salt in this one, as it would have helped bring out the flavor. 3 1/2 stars

Peanut Butter- An original peanut butter! I noticed the bottom of the jar of this one was on the dry side, kind of like when you pour out the oil of a natural peanut butter jar and the bottom of the jar is left semi hard from lack of oil. However…it was still yummy. A great peanut flavor, and couldn’t detect any protein flavor. It was creamy, thick, and a little pasty, but I enjoy peanut butter flavor, so I liked it. 3 1/2 stars

Next up, the bread!

I toasted it, and put some butter and SF jelly on it.  It had 14 grams per slice, so this eased my mind about eating bread. I am heavily into bodybuilding/fitness as well as a diabetic, so bread is not something I consume on a regular basis. However, this was really good. It toasted very well, and quicker than I expected. The outside crust of the bread was a tad bit sweet which was good in this case. I ended up buying a loaf of this stuff too and had it with turkey and cheese for a sandwich. It is a bit spongy in consistency when you don’t toast it, but still very good. 4 stars

Next up, the bagel!

I haven’t had a bagel in YEARS! Too many carbs, wreaks havoc on my blood sugars. I ended up having half at once. This one I also toasted, put some butter, with equal and cinnamon on it. Oh LAWD was it delicious! Chewy like a bagel should be, thick and strong texture. It had a whole wheat flavor to it, and was just really enjoyable. My favorite. 4 1/2 stars

Last up, the wrap/flat bread!

The flat bread itself was HUGE. I split it in two, and made two sandwiches out of it, filled with turkey and cheese and some lettuce. The first bite threw me off a little bit since it had a sweet taste to it, but slight, but as I kept chewing it was very food. It was chewy and reminded me of a typical whole wheat wrap at the store, but had some flax seeds and such in it which added nice flavor. I liked it! I would buy again. 4 stars

Overall, I am a fan! Check out their website for nutritional information and such. I wish they sold a variety pack of the bagel, wrap and bread all at once, because I would definitely buy that.

P.S. I am on INSTAGRAM now! Follow me @ lisa_liftsx for fitness and nutrition related posts!

A new flavor I saw on shelves (and hopefully better than that Green Tea one…) is the Chobani Simply 100 Pineapple Coconut Blended Greek Yogurt! So 100 calories, no fruit on the bottom, no fat, natural ingredients…not to mention one of my favorite flavor mixtures of pineapple and coconut. Looks promising 🙂

Here’s what it looked like

Nothing fancy, looks like a vanilla yogurt. There are few and tiny pineapple pieces in the yogurt as well, but for the most part the yogurt is “chunk” free of fruit.

So how did it taste?

The yogurt itself was a creamy blend, and it was rather tart from the pineapple. It tasted like the pineapple fruit on the bottom yogurt, but that one is 2% and this one is fat free, and you can tell, since more of the tart flavor comes out. The yogurt has a coconut after taste, which is pleasant. It is yummy for sure, but a little unbalanced. The pineapple flavor overtakes the coconut, and it is rather strong since it is tart. I almost wish the yogurt itself either
1. had more coconut flavor
2. was sweeter, less tart or
3. was made a 2% flavor, not a non fat. It needs the cream to mask the tartness of the pineapple, which is expected, but too strong.

However, still good. I would buy it again if on sale. 3 1/2 stars

Chobani Green Tea Blended Yogurt

Author: Healthnuttxo

If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know I LOVE Chobani. I have yet to find a flavor I haven’t really liked, and most flavors I thoroughly enjoy. I’ve seen this Green Tea Blended flavor on the shelves for a couple weeks now, so I decided to pick it up. I love green tea, and I love greek yogurt, so why not? It’s gotta be good!

Disclaimer: that is NOT a hair on the cup, that is a piece of plastic. Do not fret!

Oh boy, was I wrong on this one. This yogurt was nearly inedible for me. It started off promising, thick and creamy, typical Chobani fashion. Then I actually tasted it…awful. It tasted like plain yogurt, however it had this “cheesy” flavor to it. I had a couple extra bites to make sure, and only after my reluctant 3rd spoonful I finally tasted a very slight green tea flavor.

I was NOT. A. FAN.

It was terrible, I didn’t finish it, and had another yogurt for breakfast. I wish they did vanilla green tea, or something, because this flavor was hardly sweet or flavored, and it was almost like someone brewed green tea for a few seconds in very tart unflavored plain yogurt that had a cheesy flavor. This is officially the first Chobani yogurt I hate, and I will never buy again. 1 star


I got a free bag of the Limited Edition CinnamonSugar Pita Chips by Bearitos. These are non-GMO verified, which is always a plus. I don’t necessarily go out of my way to get non-GMO foods, but seeing a product non-GMO verified is definitely a positive!

I have a love hate with Pita chips. Love them, hate the calories and carbs. A serving size is usually like 7 chips from most brands that I’ve seen, because Pita Chips are so dense and thick. Who can only eat 7?!?!

Anyway, I was excited to try these. I was informed there is also a chocolate flavor that they make. I was sent the cinnamon sugar flavor. Here’s what they look like

As you can see, they have some seasoning on them but do not look drenched in cinnamon or sugar, which I’ll admit, I was already a bit disappointed. BUT, I tried these with an open mind.

Unfortunately, they were not as good as I hoped. They were a solid, crunchy chip, just as a pita chip should. However they were really bland. There was not a lot of cinnamon nor sugar flavor, and I had a predominant flavor of just a bland pita chip. I tried a couple chips, even some that looked like they had more coating than the others, and still to no avail.

The overall flavor was way too mild for me. If mild, and by mild I mean SUPER mild, is your thing, you might like these. I checked the sugar content of the chips, and it only had 1 gram of sugar. I suppose this is a plus, but I probably wouldn’t buy these if I saw these in store. Too bland, and not worth it if I wanted a sweet treat.  I did like the crunch these chips provided, but they just didn’t do it for me. I do NOT eat a lot of sugar (I am a Diabetic), so it’s not even as if I am used to a high exposure of sugary foods- these just barely had any flavor besides wheat.
