Phantom Gourmet: Greek Yogurt Taste Test
Saturdays & Sundays
10:30 and 11am
BOSTON (CBS) – Greek Yogurt has exploded in popularity over the past couple of years and Phantom wants to know who is at the top of the food chain.
Phantom recently purchased four cups of strawberry flavored Greek yogurt at a local supermarket.
The protein-packed contenders were Chobani, Dannon, Oikos, Fage and Voskos.
See if you can guess which brand made its way to the top of our food chain.
Voskos finished in last place. Phantom found this shockingly thick and tangy yogurt hard to handle. With its pale color, the brand was severely lacking when it came to the strawberries.
Phantom actually stirred it up hoping there was more fruit hiding on the bottom but all he found was another disappointing spoonful.
A step up from there is Dannon Oikos. This popular brand’s take on Greek yogurt comes in an appropriate blue package but that’s about the only authentic thing about it.
In fact, this sweet stuff tastes so much like Dannon’s regular yogurt, the Phantom thought he may have bought the wrong kind.
On the upside, if you’re a fan of regular yogurt looking to ease your way into Greek style, this might be the brand for you.
The runner-up is Fage.
With inventive packaging that keeps the sweet fruit separate from the rich, creamy yogurt, this brand provides a fun and interactive eating experience.When it comes to taste, wimps need not apply because Fage is so thick and tangy, it’s almost like eating straight sour cream.
At the top of the food chain is Chobani. It’s no wonder this is America’s favorite Greek yogurt. With its deep red color, big chunks of fruit and perfect balance of sweet and tangy, this cup hits all the right notes.Plus, weighing in at a full six ounces, it’s bigger than all the other competitors.That’s why Chobani strawberry yogurt is at the top of the food chain.
