Fage Total 2% Cherry Greek Yogurt Review

Fage 2% Cherry YogurtI've been on a big Fage Greek Yogurt kick lately, ever since I discovered how much creamier and richer the 2% is than the 0% (read the review of Fage 2%). I decided to branch out from my standard pot of 2% to try the fruited flavors available at the grocery store. I vacillated between 2% with Cherry and 2% with Peach, and in the end picked up both. The Cherry flavor is what I tried first though.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 5.3 ounce
Calories: 130
Total Fat: 2.5 grams, 4%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 8%
Sodium: 40 mg, 2%
Carbohydrates: 18 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 17 grams
Protein: 11 grams

I wasn't sure exactly how to eat this - are you supposed to mix in the cherry goo first, or spoon up little bits of each and let it mix in your mouth? I decided on the latter, as the yogurt package advises not stirring the product. I'm usually not the biggest fan of cherry, but this was DELICIOUS woo. The tart and sweet jam-like confection blended perfectly with the smooth, creamy yogurt and before I knew it, the cup was finished.

Each 5.3 ounce container of Fage Total 2% Cherry Yogurt provides 130 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat of which 1.5 grams is saturated (4% and 8% of the daily value), 2% of the DV for sodium,no fiber, 17 grams of sugar and 11 grams of protein.

Greek yogurt is expensive - each cup was $1.89 - but it's worth it to me because of the creamy flavor and extra protein. FAGE TOTAL Yogurt is 100% natural with no added sweeteners, thickeners or preservatives - the ingredients are, Strained Yogurt [Grade A Pasteurized Skimmed Milk and Cream, Live Active Yogurt Cultures (L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus)], Cherry Fruit Preparation (20%) [Cherries (8%), Sugar, Corn Starch, Natural Flavors].

Fage does contain a lot of sugar, which is why something like Dannon Light & Fit Key Lime or Dannon Activia Light Yogurt might be more suited to people watching their sugar intake closely. Otherwise, dive into Fage Total 2% Cherry Yogurt - but remember to still watch how much sugar you take in daily.
