Chobani Champions

Author: Healthnuttxo

Chobani Champions are a new product from Chobani. They are still yummy greek yogurt, but in a smaller size ( 4 oz compared to the original 6 oz) and are geared towards kids (but of course, you and me can totally still eat them too! ūüėČ )

They come in 4 flavors, Verryberry, Strawnana, Honeynana, and Chocolate. I was lucky enough to be sent all 4 flavors, courtesy of Chobani, and couldn’t have been more excited. I LOVE greek yogurt! I was especially excited to try the Chocolate- who doesn’t love chocolate?

Verryberry- ooh, this one is tasty. You can definetely taste the cream they added, which makes the flavors much more rich and delicious. It has a predominant blueberry and strawberry flavor, with a hint of raspberry as well. It was sweet, but not too sweet, and tasted real. One of the reasons I love Chobani is because they use REAL fruit in their yogurts- no “flavors”. I can definetely taste the actual fruit- very yummy! 4 stars

Strawnana- this one literally is the smaller version of the Strawberry-Banana Chobani (which I reviewed HERE). Perfect blend of strawberry and banana flavors, and you can actually see little strawberry seeds dispersed throughout. This one reminds me of a home-made smoothie. Delicious. 4 1/2 stars

Chocolate- definietly more of a cocoa flavor than chocolate, but still enjoyable. It was also slightly bitter, giving more of a dark chocolate taste than milk chocolate. It was also sweet, but not hershey’s chocolate syrup sweet. It sort of reminded me of hot cocoa- but cold. It was REALLY good frozen (with bananas and dark chocolate almond granola!!), and reminded me of the chocolate frozen yogurt I usually get at my local frozen yogurt place (Red Mango, anyone??). This one the liquid also separated a little bit, but instead of stirring it in (DON’T pour it out!! you lose valuable nutrients!!), I just drank it up ūüôā It was actually quite yummy! 4 1/2 stars

Honeynana- FINALLY!!!!!!!!!! A REAL tasting banana yogurt!! No icky laffy-taffy banana flavor, or fake aspartame/sucralose banana flavor (thank you, DIET yogurts). This one was my favorite, for sure! A light honey flavor and just a hint of vanilla flavor complimented the banana very well. It was the perfect sweetness, and reminded me of a banana smoothie. 5 stars

Overall, these get 4 1/2 stars. They are all rich, creamy and refreshing. These yogurts (unlike a lot of other yogurts geared towards kids) don’t have artificial colors or flavors, and aren’t packed with refined sugars or High Fructose Corn Syrup (ew!!). I’m¬†actually sort of upset they are in the 4 oz. size- I wish they were bigger, they are so delicious! I tried having the¬†verryberry flavor with my cereal and fruit for breakfast, and it wasn’t enough to cover and coat all my delicious goodies that a normal Chobani can.¬†However,¬†I think these are perfect for a snack when you need more sustenance than a regular yogurt can provide, but don’t need ALL the protein of a full size greek (full sized greek yogurts can go up to 18 grams! wow!)
