In general, I like the way yogurt tastes, so I'm more inclined to buy it. What I don't like about yogurt is that it has expiration dates. I mention that because I do most of my shopping in splurges and buy multiple items of the same product to review and with most products, the expiration dates are so far away that it really doesn't matter. With yogurt, that's not the case and it often bugs me because I end up eating a bunch of yogurt in a short period of time and I eventually get sick of it. That's what's starting to happen to me right now as a lot of sale prices and free giveaways have gotten me to start hammering the yogurt products, Yoplait included, that I joked a bit ago about re-naming this blog to Crazy Yogurt Dude. I'm not sure why I'm whining about this year, but I guess it's my prerogative since it's my blog. Alright, with that whining off my chest, it's now time to take a look at a new flavor of Yoplait Greek yogurt with this look at a single serving cup of Yoplait Greek Caramel 2% Greek Yogurt that I picked up for $1.00 at Kroger. The cup is the mostly typical 5.3 ounces and has 150 calories and eleven grams of protein.
Opening this up, there is NOT a lot to look at. The semi-creamy Greek yogurt is a light tan and color and well, that's about it. Actually, that is it. There's nothing else visual to observe. How boring. Outside of that, this did have the smell of caramel, although it was more of the burnt caramel type of smell as opposed to the sweet, candy-like smell of caramel. So, those two riveting observations are all I've got for the presentation portion of this.
In terms of the flavor, it didn't get much more exciting. The taste of the caramel in the yogurt was slightly less of the burnt caramel flavor that I was expecting which was nice, but what caramel flavor there was did not have any sort of particular sweetness or standout characteristics to it. Sadly, it just existed. The only barely interesting thing about this was that the Greek yogurt portion of this did provide a bit of zing to the end of each spoonful, so that did liven up the pretty boring taste of the caramel.
Buy It or Fly By It? I wanted to like this because I like caramel, but this was just so boring that I can't say that I really liked it. It wasn't bad (maybe this works with a bit more sweetness to it?), but it also wasn't good and because of that and it being so boring, I have to give this a FLY BY IT rating. If this is your only option for something to eat, you aren't going to be repulsed, but there are certainly better options of Greek yogurt flavors to eat out in the world.
