BOSTON (CBS) — Phantom recently purchased four cups of blueberry Greek yogurt at a local supermarket. The protein packed contenders were Chobani, Dannon Oikos, Fage, and Stonyfield. See if you can guess which fat-free snack ended up at the top of the food chain.
Dannon Oikos finished in last place. This brand is proud to be ‘the official yogurt of the NFL,’ but apparently professional football and tasty yogurt don’t always go hand in hand. This stuff tastes artificially sweet, and doesn’t deliver the thick texture Phantom expects from a Greek yogurt.
A step up from there is Stonyfield. This organic Greek yogurt is free from artificial hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs. Unfortunately, it’s also free from having much flavor. Utterly unremarkable, there are simply not enough blueberries on the bottom, and the ones that are there don’t pack much punch. Stonyfield isn’t terrible, but it also isn’t memorable.
The runner up is Fage. Unlike the other brands that offer up the blueberries on the bottom, this cup keeps things separated, with the yogurt in the main compartment, and the fruit served in a sidecar. The yogurt is extra thick, and almost too tart to eat on its own, but pairing it with some of that sweet blueberry jam makes for a compelling combination. On the downside, depending on the shape of your spoon, getting to all of that precious fruit can be a challenge.
At the top of the food chain is Chobani. Thick, creamy, and packed with sweet blueberry flavor, this brand was the runaway winner. Even before phantom found the fruit on the bottom, this yogurt was infused with plenty of blueberry goodness. And once he got to the jam, things got even better, with tons of whole blueberries that burst when you bite ’em. That’s why Chobani blueberry Greek yogurt is at the top of the food chain.
