Review: Yoplait Greek Peaches 'n Cream 2% Greek Yogurt

The mega manufacturers keep on chugging.  That is one of the givens of life and today, another one of those mega manufacturers (Yoplait) will grace this blog with yet another review and if you've been reading recently, ANOTHER yogurt review.  I'm not quite tired of yogurt yet, but I can see that on the horizon.  Of course, I've been eating pudding just about every day for the last four or five years, so maybe I'll never get tired of yogurt.  Anyway, I picked up this cup of Yoplait Greek Peaches 'n Cream 2% Greek Yogurt on sale for $1.00 at Kroger and it's the semi-customary 5.3 ounces and has 150 calories with eleven grams of protein.

Opening this up, I did not at first see anything to look at.  It was just a slightly off-white Greek yogurt that had a very mild peach smell that I couldn't really detect until I put this right next to my nose and took a big whiff.  I will say though that the peach smell did cancel out the sometimes foul smell of the Greek yogurt, so I did appreciate that because no matter how many times I eat Greek yogurt, get accustomed to it and like it, I still will never get used to the sometimes odd smell.  Anyway, after stirring around and digging a bit, I finally was able to find something to look at and if you look at my picture above, you may see a couple of little peach chunks that were buried within the mass of fairly creamy Greek yogurt.  That's about it.  There isn't a whole lot else to describe about this, so I'll just right in to describing the flavor.

Upon my first spoonful, I was immediately struck by the fact that this yogurt seemingly had a lot of the cream flavor from the "Peaches 'n Cream" product name.  I can honestly say that I didn't expect that and I will also honestly say that I enjoyed it (I'm just waiting for the day where I can say, "I'm flat-out lying to you right now..." instead of saying "honestly" all the time.  It would kind of ruin my limited credibility as reviewer though, eh?).  That cream flavor was really the prevalent flavor in this cup, followed by the mild sweetness of the peaches.  The Greek yogurt itself really did not have that usual Greek flavor and all it really did was impact the texture of this as it was particularly creamy, which was nice.  What made this interesting and fun as I found the entire package to grow on me and get more appealing with each spoonful.  That doesn't happen often.

Buy It or Fly By It?  All in all, the flavors in this were very mild in this, but they were quite pleasing and I'll give this a BUY IT rating because of that.  Nothing about peaches or cream are particularly strong flavors in general, so the fact that they were such mild flavors in this yogurt cup is not unexpected when I really think about it.  In the end, this is just a safe and pleasing treat and for that, it gets my appreciation.
