Review: Dannon Oikos Chocolate On Top Chocolate Covered Strawberry Greek Yogurt

I often have a dirty mind.  When I see the name of today's product that adds to my Dannon review history, I can only think of one thing because of that dirty mind.  If you also have a remotely dirty mind, you know what I'm thinking of.  If you don't know what I'm thinking of, that's probably a good thing because it means you are a decent person.  I'm also not going to spell it out for you because I don't want to be responsible for sullying your mind.  Anyway, those dirty thoughts aside, I picked up this 5.3 ounce single serving cup of Dannon Oikos Chocolate On Top Chocolate Covered Strawberry Greek Yogurt on sale at Kroger for $1.00 and it's 210 calories with ten grams of protein.

Much like these other Oikos yogurts that have the decadence on top of the yogurt, when I opened this cup, I was immediately met with a ton of somewhat runny chocolate syrup that rested on top of the strawberry yogurt beneath.  They syrup had a strong smell of chocolate, so there was definitely no mistaking what this intended to be.  Like I said, beneath that was a layer of strawberry Greek yogurt that was moderately creamy and also had a strong strawberry smell to it once I was able to parse out the chocolate smell from the topping.  That's really all there is to this from a presentation perspective, so it's fairly simple.

I would say that the flavor was fairly simple too, but that should be taken as a complement.  The chocolate itself was a rich and decadent chocolate that teetered right on the edge of being too sweet, but never crossed that line.  Frankly, it was delicious.  The strawberry yogurt beneath that carried everything that you'd want a strawberry yogurt to have in that it was mildly sweet and did have that zing of flavor that strawberries typically have.  My only very minor complaint to that strawberry yogurt was that the Greek characteristics of it made it slightly dry, but that was probably mostly due to the fact that the moderate tartness of this yogurt from the Greek flavor made it seem dry.  Anyway, that dryness was not a problem once it was mixed with the rich and decadent, albeit slightly runny, chocolate.  Still, even though the chocolate was runnier than I would have liked, it worked perfectly with the strawberries and really did do a fine job of emulating the namesake food item.

Buy It or Fly By It?  Just like the age old combination that makes me dirty mind churn, this one did the job representing what it was supposed to be and gets a BUY IT rating.  While this was not the best of these new syrup on top types of Greek yogurt that I've had from Dannon so far, it was still a solid and tasty player that would be a safe choice for anyone looking to mix a little decadence in with their healthy serving of Greek yogurt.  You could substitute this for a dessert and be a very happy person.
