Review: Yoplait Greek 100 Peach Yogurt

So I love peaches and I have developed a love for Greek yogurt.  That's why it strikes me as odd that I've never matched the two up and done a review of today's product since it matches both of those things up in one single serving cup.  Oddness aside, I picked up this 5.3 ounce single serving cup of Yoplait Greek 100 Peach Yogurt on sale at my local Kroger for $1.00.  Based on the name, it's pretty obvious and should come as no surprise that this one has 100 calories.  To go along with those 100 calories are 10 grams of protein and this one scores as a two on the Weight Watchers PointsPlus scale.

If you can see the tiny print near the bottom of this cup in the header photo, you'll be able to see going in that this products is marketed as a "Fruit on the Bottom" product, so the fact that I only saw plain Greek yogurt after taking the lid off of this comes as no surprise.  Once I stirred it up for the picture above, I found small, mildly peach smelling chunks of peaches mixed with in a fruit marmalade-type of concoction.  The yogurt itself was pretty basic and thick and the peach concoction was just like any type of marmalade that I would expect in that it was moderately loose.  Other than that, I'm not sure I've got any else of any substance to add.

As with all products that have multiple distinct components, I always see it as my responsibility to taste them separately first.  In the case of this cup, I tasted the Greek yogurt first and it was pretty bland and only had a faint amount of tartness like I'd expect from a Greek yogurt.  As for the peach mix, it was sweet, but that sweetness was quite mild, but peach flavored products tend to do that.  What was interesting about this is that when I mixed the two together, the strength of the peach flavor actually got stronger and overpowered what was already a weak tasting Greek yogurt.  It wasn't overpowering enough to be unappealing, it was just unexpected.  What was particularly interesting was that the tartness (what limited amount there was) of the Greek yogurt cancelled out some of the sweetness of the peach mix and this ended up with something that had mild, but definitely noticeable peach flavoring.

Buy It or Fly By It?  Despite the fact that the flavor ended up being mild in the end, that mildness was exceptionally pleasing in my mind and I give this a solid BUY IT rating.  It was a tasty and worthwhile eating experience for me and while I often complain about lack of flavor, I think the fact that this was so mild actually made me enjoy it more.  Strange how that works out some times.
