Wednesday Taste Test Challenge: Breyer's YoCrunch 100-Calorie Yogurt
I tend to rotate between several favorites: Yoplait Light Thick & Creamy Key Lime Pie, Fiber One Key Lime (zero WW points!!), and Yo-Plus Light Vanilla Honey. Last weekend, I had a coupon for Breyer's new YoCrunch 100-calorie yogurt...so I decided to give it a try. I had it for breakfast yesterday and thought it was pretty tasty. There were several different combinations of yogurt and crunchy toppings on store shelves, but I decided to try the strawberry yogurt with granola to sprinkle on top.
This yogurt is sweetened with a blend of sugar and Truvia, which is an all-natural zero-calorie sweetener that's made from the stevia plant. The yogurt has a nice creamy texture, and the granola stayed very crunchy. Together, it was a great flavor combination! The only complaint that I have about this yogurt is that the serving size is pretty small...about 1/3 of a cup. I think that it will make a great after-work snack, but I needed to add a granola bar to make it a satisfying breakfast. Bottom line: this yogurt won't replace Yoplait Light Thick & Creamy Key Lime Pie in my affections, but it is still quite tasty.
