Review: Stonyfield Organic Greek and Chia Blueberry Greek Yogurt

I'm starting to run thin on reviews and because of that, I'm reviewing a lot of manufacturers in the same week.  I try to stay away from doing that unless there is some sort of theme going on, but desperate times call for desperate measures and that leads me to another Stonyfield Organic review as I'm once again taking a look at one of their new products with this review of the Stonyfield Organic Greek and Chia Blueberry Greek Yogurt that I picked up at Kroger for $1.25.  The cup itself is 5.3 ounces and within that are 140 calories and twelve gram of protein.  It's organic, gluten free and kosher and all that fun stuff too.

Much like the last one of these that I looked at, the composition is the same.  The fruit and chia "marmalade" is on the bottom and that is topped with the organic Greek yogurt.  The organic Greek  yogurt is thick and carries somewhat of a cheesy smell and the marmalade has a nice blueberry smell mixed with fairly large chia seeds.  Upon review of Stonyfield's website, I've come to find out that these blueberries are from Quebec, Canada, so I'm not quite sure how I feel supporting the Canadian economy.  I am an American after all.  Silliness aside, that's really all there is in terms of presentation.  Nothing fancy and pretty much as I expected since I reviewed one of these earlier this week.

I'll start first with the flavor of the Greek yogurt and just like last time there wasn't a lot of "Greek" to it.  It was primarily a cheesy tasting yogurt and it did have nice creaminess.  The only true Greek hit in it came in at the very end in a brief jolt of tang.  As for the marmalade, the blueberry flavor was delightful.  It was sweet, but not too sweet, and also carried a bit of tang.  It pains me to say something from Canada was tasty, but these blueberries from Quebec were quite good.  As with the last review, the chia seeds did nothing really other than add texture and when a yogurt cup is basically a runny marmalade and a creamy yogurt, the grainy texture of the chia seeds is very much appreciated.  As for mixing everything together, it made for a nice appealing package.  What sweet and tang there was from the blueberry was balanced out by the Greek yogurt to make a nice appealing package.

Buy It or Fly By It?  This was a nice and appealing package, as I already said, so this gets a BUY IT rating.  Out of the two chia-based Greek yogurts that I've tried from Stonyfield so far, this one is definitely the winner and was one that I was actually remorseful at the end because I wanted more.  That is always a good sign for a product.
