I've done a lot of Chobani reviews in the past and some of them have focused on limited batches. Most of those limited batches disappear fairly quickly because they truly are limited. The source of today's review must not have been too limited because I've seen it on the shelves of my local grocery stores for quite some time. Since it had been there for a while and I figured it could be at least somewhat still timely, I grabbed a container of this Chobani Concord Grape Greek Yogurt via a free coupon at my local Marsh. It would typically retail in the $1.25 range. This 5.3 ounce cup packs 140 calories and twelve grams of protein, so it's not a true belly buster, which is nice. I love snacking on grapes too, so I was quite curious about this one going into the review.
One of the key factors of this cup of yogurt is that it's blended, obviously meaning that everything is going to be mixed together into one main puree. That was definitely the case with this as the grapes were all blended up and this was just a mix of extremely thick and purple-colored Greek yogurt. So think, in fact, that it didn't even more when I shook it and turned it upside down. The container smelled nicely of grapes as well. So, it had the coloring and the smell down, so from that perspective, it was definitely concord grape.
There's not a ton to say about the flavor here because it delivered exactly like I would have hoped it too. It had a mix of sweetness and tang, just like a Concord grape. What was interesting was that there wasn't a lot of the typical flavoring that you would find in Greek yogurt, specifically potent tang and almost sourness. The grape flavoring did a good job of muting that. Basically, this ended up being a pleasantly flavored grape version of Greek yogurt...exactly what Chobani hoped to acheive.
Buy It or Fly By It? There wasn't a ton to say about this because it was so basic, but it absolutely delivered and gets a BUY IT rating. If I was Chobani, I'd consider making this a permanent flavor because grape flavored yogurt is not only unique, but their Greek version was also a tasty treat. If this seemingly unlimited limited batch is on the shelves of your local store, I think you'd be wise to give it a shot.
