Dannon Activia Selects Strawberry Parfait

I usually have plain low-fat (and low sugar) yogurts, but those tend to have artificial sweeteners, and there are times when I give my body a break from that. So while I was out, I decided to check out a few yogurts that are not artificially sweetened, including
Dannon Activia Selects Strawberry Parfait. It's described as, "crunchy granola you can mix into delicious creamy Activia low fat yogurt."

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 6 ounces

Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 8%
Sodium: 120 mg, 5%
Carbohydrates: 42 grams

The yogurt was sweet with lots of strawberry pieces throughout. Mixing in the granola adds a nice contrasting texture. While I preferred the taste a bit more than Breyers YoCrunch Blueberry Fruit Parfait (Review), the YoCrunch parfait wins in the nutrition facts department.

Each 6 ounce serving of Dannon Activia Selects Strawberry Parfait provides 220 calories, 3 grams of total fat (5% of the daily value), including 1.5 grams of saturated fat (8% of the DV), 2 grams of fiber (8% of the DV), 6 grams of protein and 29 grams of sugars. The YoCrunch parfait provides 170 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat and 24 grams of sugars.

The ingredients in Dannon Activia Selects Strawberry Parfait are cultured grade A reduced fat milk, strawberries, sugar, fructose, water; modified food starch; less than 1% of milk protein concentrate, modified corn starch, Kosher gelatin, natural flavor, agar agar, carrageenan, carmine (for color), sodium citrate,calcium lactate, lactic acid, xanthan gum. vitamin D3. The granola topping has rolled white wheat flakes, sugar, milled rice, molasses, honey, cinnamon, salt, malt.

I purchased a single 6 ounce serving for $1.00, but would buy the Breyers YoCrunch Blueberry Fruit Parfait (Review) instead as they both cost the same, and although the Dannon parfait is a little more tasty, the YoCrunch one has the edge in the nutrition facts.
