Review: Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla Yogurt

Dannon, the French purveyor of yogurt, has a "healthy" line of yogurt in their product offerings called "Light & Fit."  Light & Fit yogurt is 0% fat and depending on the serving size (individual six ounce cups or part of a large 32 ounce container), I have seen it range anywhere from 80-110 calories.  Since I was eating out of the Vanilla flavor out of the large 32 ounce container, my calorie count was 110 calories per eight ounce serving (obviously four per container).  FYI, I picked this up on sale at Meijer for $2.00, but depending on the store, it usually runs anywhere between $2.25 and $2.50 per container.

The picture doesn't do it justice because of poor lighting, but the yogurt is actually more of a bright white than the off-white that it looks like above.  Also, as you can see from the yogurt hanging on the sides of the container, this yogurt is quite creamy, which is quite an accomplishment for something that lacks fat.  It's not nearly as creamy/dense as Greek yogurt, but like I said, it makes a noble effort for a zero fat product.

In terms of taste, I would qualify this as delicious.  A lot of people would feel that vanilla is a boring flavor, but in this case, I would say that they are wrong.  Light & Fit's vanilla is mildly tart and provides a nice cooling, yet tasty mouthfeel.  Because it is a mild flavor, it can be used as a focal point just eaten plain or as an add-in to something like a parfait (I do this often).  Either way you attempt to eat it, it is delicious.

Buy It or Fly By It?  Absolutely BUY IT!  Like I said, it can be eaten/used multiple ways and it is my firm opinion that you can't lose no matter which way you choose to use it.  Since it is zero fat and reasonably lower calorie, it is a relatively guilt-free treat as well, especially compared to regular yogurt.
