Review: Chobani flip Blueberry Power Greek Yogurt

I've hit on these Chobani flip products before and thankfully, I've had more hits than misses.  Hoping to continue that trend, I grabbed another one of these when they were on sale for $1.00 at my local Kroger and that leads me to today's review of this Chobani flip Blueberry Power Greek Yogurt.  This all natural combination of yogurt is 5.3 ounces and comes in with 190 calories and thirteen grams of protein.

I have to admit, I was moderately shell shocked when I ripped the cover off the dual compartmented package.  I expected plain Greek yogurt in one of the compartments, but I got blueberry Greek yogurt instead.  I guess that doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things, but it was a nice surprise nonetheless.  As for that yogurt, it carried the typical blue/purple coloring and contained several full-sized blueberries, which was also quite nice.  As for the other compartment, it was interesting to say the least.  Within that compartment were some tiny, chopped-up walnuts and also some hemp seeds (the white ones) and chia seeds (the black ones).  I can't say that I expected so many seeds, so seeing them in such abundance was not something that I was prepared for.  When I dumped that nut and seeds compartment into the yogurt itself, the cup runneth over, so to speak.  There were so many seeds that it seemed like the runny yogurt, which was out of the ordinary itself, would be taken over by seeds.  There just wasn't a whole lot of room for anything in the compartment, which I guess is a good thing considering this is a product that is intended to be mixed together.

Before I dumped those seeds in, I took a quick taste of the blueberry Greek yogurt and it tasted pretty much like I or anyone else should expect it to.  Tart with a slight hint of sweetness, it was pretty standard stuff, albeit more runny than I've come to expect in Greek yogurts.  Anyway, after getting that quick taste, I dumped the nut/seeds mixed in and what I got was the aforementioned mess of everything.  When I took a spoonful for a taste, I got something that was extremely grainy due to the seeds and had an occasional crunch from the walnuts.  None of those things brought any flavor to the table and really just only added some texture to each spoonful.  The only add-in that brought any flavor were the blueberries in the mix of the yogurt and they tasted like blueberries, which should come as no surprise.  Texturally, they added a bit of a soft and chewy characteristic to each spoonful that included them, but it wasn't enough to really make any sort of difference.

Buy It or Fly By It?  All I can say about this powerful combination, or so Chobani thinks it is, is that it was powerfully blah.  Nothing about this was memorable at all.  Usually, when something is boring, I give a tepid positive rating because I suppose a manufacturer could do worse.  In the case of the Blueberry Power combination, I can't do that.  It was so outrageously boring that I have to give it a FLY BY IT rating.  There's no reason to pick this up unless you just want something that you can put in your mouth and not really have any like or dislike for.



  1. what a shameless rip off of muller corner! they will be sued i guess

  2. I love this flavor! It is my favorite of any yogurt I've tried :)

  3. I think the walnuts add a fair amount of flavor, and I love the added texture.

  4. Oh my, I strongly disagree. This us the best yogurt I've ever had in my life. My only complaint is that it's a tad bit pricey unless you catch it on sale and it's hard to find. I could literally eat one of these everyday morning, noon & night and still not get tired of them. Absolutely the best yogurt cup ever. If they stopped making them I would be devastated.
