The thicker, smoother, creamier texture of Greek yogurt won me over almost immediately. I still have a hard time enjoying plain yogurt (I love me some fruit chunks and flavor swirls!), but my daily cup of this creamy goodness is what fuels me every afternoon during the work week.
So, why am I telling you this? And why should you care? I'll sum it up in three words: Free. Local. Delicious.
Stonyfield Farm contacted me several weeks ago, asking me to try some of their Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt. While I'm typically a Chobani girl, I have tried Stonyfield's Greek yogurt before, and remembered being a fan. Stonyfield provided me with a coupon to try one of these yogurts for free, which I eagerly used on the 0% caramel flavor (Stonyfield also just recently launched a 1.5% line of their Oikos yogurts).
After my first spoonful, I was immediately impressed by how creamy the texture was. The silky caramel also blended easily with the yogurt, and there was enough to have a bit of the sweetness in every bite, without being too much. After a few bites, I added a little granola - the added flavor wasn't necessary, but I like a little crunch!
I'm always down to buy a local product over a non-local product, and I really enjoyed this flavor. I will definitely be buying more of Stonyfield's Greek yogurt in the future.
So, would you like to enjoy some free yogurt, too? Here's your chance!
