Dannon Activia Selects Non Fat Strawberry Greek Yogurt

When we asked in our poll, How Do You Yogurt, 60% of you responded that Greek yogurt was your thing. I'm more of a low-fat, low-sugar type of girl, but when I saw
Dannon Activia Selects Non Fat Strawberry Greek Yogurt, I decided to try it.

NUTRITION FACTS

I loved the texture, which is very thick & creamy as it says on the packaging. It's also rampant with bits of strawberries - it felt like there was some in every bite so I wasn't surprised to see that it's 3rd ingredient. What I also wasn't surprised to see is that sugar is the 4th ingredient, because this is suh-weet - not so sweet that you can't eat it, but it made me curious to see how much sugar is in each serving. Turns out there are 29 grams - which is quite a lot for a 6 ounce serving size - much more sugar in this than in Dannon Strawberry Greek Yogurt (Review), which has 16 grams per 5.3 ounce serving (or 18 grams in 6 ounces).

Each 6 ounce serving of Dannon Activia Selects Non Fat Strawberry Greek Yogurt provides 190 calories, no fat or fiber, 29 grams of sugars as previously mentioned, and 12 grams of protein.

The ingredients in Dannon Activia Selects Non Fat Strawberry Greek Yogurt are cultured grade A non-fat milk, water, strawberries, sugar, fructose, milk protein concentrate; less than 1% of maltodextrin, modified corn starch, modified food starch, natural flavors, carrageenan, carmine and black carrot juice concentrate (for color), sodium citrate, potassium sorbate (to maintain freshness), malic acid, vitamin D3.

There are quite a few strawberry Greek yogurts with less calories and sugars than this, including Oikos Organic Strawberry Greek Yogurt (Review), Chobani 2% All Natural Strawberry Banana Greek Yogurt (Review) and Brown Cow Strawberry on the Bottom All Natural 0% Fat Greek Yogurt (Review).

I paid $1.00 for a 6 ounce container of Dannon Activia Selects Non Fat Strawberry Greek Yogurt, and although it's tasty, I wouldn't buy this again given all the other lower caloric and less sugar options.
