Review: Private Selection Amber Honey Lowfat Greek Yogurt

After my Private Selection ice cream review binge, I figured it was time to try out some of their other products.  It should come as no surprise that they (Kroger) has decided to join the rest of the world's ridiculous infatuation with Greek yogurt by introducing their own new product varieties and that leads me to this container of Private Selection Amber Honey Lowfat Greek Yogurt that I picked up on sale at the aforementioned Kroger for $1.00.  The dual compartment container comes in at a total of 5.3 ounces and is 200 calories with eleven grams of protein.  It is two percent milkfat as well, if that means anything to any of you readers out there.

I won't spend a lot of time describing this and honestly, I had to go back and re-edit this review to include the description of the product after my first proofreading because the presentation of this was so basic that I completely forgot.  Since this is a dual compartment container, the amber honey and the Greek yogurt were in separate containers.  The yogurt itself was thick and had that tart smell of typical Greek yogurt.  The honey was sticky, gooey and smelled just like any run-of-the-mill honey.  That's all I've got, so let's move on to the taste.

Being that this was my first attempt at Private Selection's Greek yogurt, it's only fair that I first try out the yogurt itself and it should come as no surprise that it tasted like...plain Greek yogurt!  It was tart and thick and the only real unique characteristic that I can point out about it was that it had an almost cheesy like flavor.  That's not the first time that has happened to me when trying out Greek yogurts, but it is something that has not happened often.  Next to try out was the honey and guess what?  It tasted like honey!  The last step was to mix the two together and one kind of fun thing happened when I did so.  The sticky honey started to break up and turn almost runny.  That was unexpected, but very welcome since I was beginning to wonder how the honey was going to spread out in this.  Anyway, the honey itself did a good job of balancing out the flavor of this total package.  The yogurt had the tart characteristics and the honey had the sweet characteristics and they both worked in tandem to provide something that displayed both flavors evenly to provide a pleasing treat.

Buy It or Fly By It?  There was nothing particularly special about this, but that is just fine as it delivered pretty much as I would have expected it to.  For that reason, I give it a BUY IT rating.  It's not going to win any awards for its flavor, but it is a consistent performer that would definitely fit the bill for a snack or however which way you would choose to eat it.
