Do you say ‘YO-ghurt’ or ‘YOG-hurt’? :) I remember there was a lecturer back at Uni who was English, he would also use ‘Ski Yoghurt’ as an example to explain a marketing theory, and the whole class would laugh because we all say ‘Yo-ghurt’ but he’ll argue and correct us saying it’s ‘YOG-hurt’ hahaha no matter how you say it, I’m CRAZY about yoghurt! The one thing that we always run out in the house is ‘yoghurt’! I down at least a tub or two a day ~ Mr Bao sometimes gets annoyed that he always needs to buy ‘more’ yoghurt :P really should make my own…especially since Lorraine (Not Quite Nigella) and Kim (Fruit Salad Mixed Veg) have both written great posts about making your own yoghurt ~
Anyway, that’s why I was SUPER excited when Chobani asked me if I’d like to sample their yoghurt ~ I have read and heard of some amazing things about their yoghurt and really wanted to try so it was perfect timing :D
For those who don’t know, Chobani is one of America’s most famous yoghurt and have recently entered the Australian market :) It was founded by Hamdi Ulukaya in 2005, who was born and raised in Turkey, he decided to make his own yoghurt because he didn’t like the yoghurt sold in the supermarkets. I was really surprised when I read that, because I always thought American’s made pretty good yoghurt hehe ~ but then after trying Chobani…I now understand why Hamdi decided to make his own! It’s so much better ~ Thicker, Creamier and Richer hehe
I was sent all 7 Flavours – Mango, Peach, Strawberry, Blueberry, Pineapple, Passionfruit and the Plain :) Unfortunately, by the time I took photos for this post…Mr Bao had already eaten the ‘Mango and Passionfruit’ flavour -____-
Before I go through the flavours with you, just wanted to show you exactly how ‘THICK’ Chobani’s yoghurt is ~ it was so thick that it wouldn’t even move when I shook it furiously, I dunno why I did that though lol
I stuck a spoon in and it didn’t ‘move’ at all! I don’t think I’ve ever had a thicker yoghurt ~ I usually just eat ‘Jalna‘ yoghurt and thought that was already pretty thick :)
I’m sure you guys are smarter than me hahaha I remember the first time I opened the tub of yoghurt, I was a little lost, why was it so ‘white’ and ‘where’s my fruit?’. Mr Bao rolled his eyes and said ‘It’s probably at the bottom,just mix the damn thing’ so I did and there it was ~ The lovely fruit puree YAY! The one in the picture is the pineapple flavour ~ I don’t see many yoghurts that have a pineapple flavour so I was pretty surprised hehe I liked the pineapple flavour and get to have both tubs because Mr Bao can’t eat pineapples :P
My favourite would have to be the BLUEBERRY flavour :D It had the thick consistency, but I just think it was the best combination with the blueberries, wasn’t too tart or too sweet, just right ~
Mr Bao loves strawberry flavoured yoghurts and desserts ~ he liked this strawberry yoghurt, but thought the strawberry puree tasted it a little artificial and didn’t really provide him with the fresh strawberry flavour he was looking for. I had the same feeling, and thought the strawberry puree was a little bland ~
I made the mistake of having this ‘plain yoghurt’ with some cereal :( because it was quite tart and a little to pungent to have on its own, but I could definitely see myself cooking and making desserts with me :) However, it might be a little thick if you’re trying to make a sauce so you may need to stir it or thin it down with some oil ~
Quite nice :) but I’m not really a peachy person so this wasn’t my favourite ~
I didn’t take a photo of the mango but that would be my second favourite, because I love mango flavoured yoghurt and it didn’t taste like ‘artificial flavouring’. I also tried the passionfruit, but didn’t like that because it was too sour, trying to be healthy, I don’t like adding extra ‘sugar’ to my yoghurt, but I had to add a little bit of honey to finish this tub of yoghurt.
Overall, I really liked Chobani’s yoghurt and will continue buying it :) I really love their rich and thick texture, the only problem is they’re only selling their yoghurt at Woolworths right now and I usually shop at Coles…damn lol but doesn’t matter, for good yoghurt I’m happy to go to Woolworths :D
Thank you once again Chobani for giving me the chance to sample your wonderful yoghurt ~
