It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for…you can finally buy a full fat flavored yogurt again!
About five years ago when I used to buy individual yogurts most of the time there were a couple of brands that sold full fat organic yogurt in a variety of flavors. That is what I always bought. Then all of a sudden they were harder and harder to find until all of the companies discontinued their full fat versions.
I suppose in hind sight it was good for me since it got me to start buying plain yogurt and flavoring it myself (which I still do now) or making fruit on the bottom yogurt. But I was very disappointed when it happened. Companies that cared about quality and nourishment hopped on the low fat/fat free bandwagon and got rid of their best products.
These days with the way we go through yogurt there is no way I could buy individual yogurts very often. I’d spend half of our grocery budget on yogurt! Not to mention I’m generally not a fan of how much sugar is in flavored yogurts. But once in a while it’s a nice treat. It is also convenient when you head out on your summer vacation.
So it was fun for the family when we got to try some of the new Stonyfield Oh My Yog! full fat yogurt!
Right now this variety of yogurt is very difficult to find where I live. I managed to find two containers (the only two) at a local health food store. So we only got to try one flavor. My kids had to share a yogurt. Hopefully soon they will be more readily available.
We sampled the apple cinnamon flavor (by we I mean my husband and two oldest kids…little one and I are still dairy free for the foreseeable future).
After the first bite my son declared, “Wow, this is sweet!” He is used to the way we normally eat yogurt with just a touch of honey or maple syrup. My husband and daughter didn’t think it was overly sweet. So it just depends on your taste buds.
In terms of flavor they all loved the apple cinnamon. I hope we get a chance to try some of the other flavors since they are more unique – wild Quebec blueberry, gingered pear, orange cranberry, Madagascar vanilla bean and Pacific coast strawberry. If I could try one I’d go for the vanilla bean…vanilla has always been my favorite.
Although I couldn’t taste the yogurt here are some of my thoughts on it.
Things I like:
- Full fat
- No cornstarch (important when your child has a corn allergy!)
- Unique flavors
Things I don’t like:
- Natural flavor – I don’t normally let my kids eat products with this ingredient since I don’t know the source and it’s risky with kids with allergies. If it is so “natural” I wish they would just say what it is!!
- Expensive – I’m sure it was partly because I bought it at a small store, but there is no way I could afford to spend $2 per yogurt on our family when I can buy a whole quart of plain yogurt for almost the same price.
- Too much sugar – it may not have tasted super sweet but based on the nutrition facts there was still more sugar in it than I like to give my kids.
Oh My Yog! is not something I can afford to buy or want to serve on a daily basis. But it is a wonderful option when we are traveling or need a special treat. I love that I can finally buy full fat yogurt in individual servings again!
Oh My Yog! will help add a splash of color and flavor to your morning. How do you add color to your life? For me that involves spending time in the kitchen being creative with new recipes, ingredients and flavor combinations.
Have you tried Stonyfield Oh My Yog!? Which flavor sounds the best?
