Review: Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends Key Lime Greek Yogurt

Here I go as I continue to make my way through these Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends reviews with another stab at one of these from my binge purchase at Walmart.  I was able to pick up this single serving cup of Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends Key Lime Greek Yogurt at the same regular price of $1.00 and each cup is 5.3 ounces of 80 calorie fun.  It's two times the amount of protein, or so they say, so that translates to twelve grams of protein that is power packed into a low calorie treat.  Honestly, that's kind of impressive.

As I removed the foil lid, I was pretty underwhelmed on how this looked, not that I should have been surprised based on the other Blends reviews that I've done.  This one was a typical creamy Greek yogurt that had a light green coloring to signify the key lime component.  It also had a mild key lime smell to go with it, so outside of those observations, there's really not anything else to say.

One thing I was afraid of before I took my first spoonful of this was that the key lime flavoring would be too powerful.  I typically like key lime flavor, but only in moderation.  Sometimes it can be just too much and too bitter for me, but thankfully, this cup of Greek yogurt did not have that issue.  The key lime flavor was definitely present, but it was mild and pleasing.  One interesting thing about this was that the key lime flavor completely cancelled out the Greek yogurt tart flavor that one would typically expect and instead just made this entirely a cup of key lime flavored yogurt.  I didn't expect that and while I can't say that I missed the Greek yogurt tartness, it did give me something different than I expected.

Buy It or Fly By It?  The key lime flavor in this was just right, in my opinion.  It was potent enough to let me know that I was definitely tasting key limes, but it wasn't so overwhelming that it completely took over my taste buds.  For that tameness and pleasing flavor, I give this a BUY IT rating.  This is a solid low calorie Greek yogurt treat, so if you can deal with key limes and are looking for some protein, this is a good option.
