Review: Private Selection Raspberry Cranberry Greek Yogurt

Today's review is a biggie for me.  Not because this is a monumental product or anything like that but because it ends my list of Private Selection products that I made in my initial purchasing binge of eight products at once.  Whew, what a relief.  Anyway, I picked this Private Selection Raspberry Cranberry Greek Yogurt up in my binge at the same $0.99 price and each cup is 5.3 ounces with 170 calories and eleven grams of protein.  It's also two percent milkfat, but I'm not really sure that means anything to anyone.  I know it means nothing to me.  Food is food.

This is just the basic buddy system style (I'm now coining that term) of Greek yogurt where the plain yogurt itself is in one compartment and the fruit mix is the "buddy" next door in the other compartment.  In the case of the "buddy" (fruit) it had a mix of raspberry graininess and small chunks of cranberries.  It had a sweet, yet not overpowering smell, so that was nice.  The yogurt was standard Greek yogurt in that it was thick and had a tart smell to it.  Other than that, there's nothing else to this.

In terms of taste, the Greek yogurt was what I'd expect.  Plain and thick, with a slightly tart taste.  Basic stuff.  The fruit mix had that raspberry graininess and those chunks of cranberry to break up the texture of the mix, so that was quite nice.  In terms of flavor, the sweetness was extremely mid and the flavor profile leaned more toward raspberry sweet than it did cranberry tang, although both were present.  What I expected to happen when I mixed that fruit mix into the Greek yogurt did not happen though.  I expected the fruit to overtake the yogurt, but the exact opposite happened because the power of flavor in the fruit mix was so lacking compared to the yogurt.  This was more yogurt with a fruity aftertaste then it was fruit with a yogurt aftertaste.  Not a bad thing, just not what I expected.

Buy It or Fly By It?  This wasn't what I expected, but it was still a fine tasting and appealing product, so I'll give it a BUY IT rating.  For about a dollar, I don't think you can really go wrong wit this, especially if you are seeking out an affordable and tasty Greek yogurt product.  If you see this in one of the Kroger family of stores, I'd recommend grabbing it if you are interested.
