Fage Total 2% Yogurt with Honey Review

Fage Total 2% Yogurt with HoneyI've gotten a little tired of my usual Fage Total 0% and having to add sweetener and vanilla or cinnamon! I therefore decided to give Fage Total 2% with Honey a shot. I don't have much honey in my regular diet, but I do like it in theory, so I was excited to try this treat. Plus I loved the plain Fage Total 2% Yogurt and the fruit flavored Fage Total 2% Cherry Greek Yogurt (although the Peach - not so much).

NUTRITION FACTS

The first thing I have to say about this: there is a LOT of honey. When I first started eating this, the honey/yogurt combination was great. I wasn't expecting the sweetness of the honey to go so well with the creamy richness of the yogurt, but they were perfect together. The way I ate this was to take a little bit of honey on the tip of my spoon and then dip the honeyed spoon in the yogurt half of the container. I let the flavors mingle in my mouth - yum! But after about eating about halfway through the entire amount of honey in the container, the sweetness got to be a little too much. I guess the good thing about having the honey in a separate compartment is that you don't have to go through all of it.

Fage is an all natural yogurt snack, and the ingredients are simply, Strained Yogurt [Grade A Pasteurized Skimmed Milk and Cream, Live Active Yogurt Cultures (L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus)], Honey (20 %).

If you're looking to decrease your calorie intake, then this might not be the yogurt for you (or me), because each 5.3 ounce container of Fage Total 2% Yogurt with Honey provides 29 grams of sugar and 180 calories. There is also 10 grams of protein and only 4% of the daily value for total fat.

That's a pretty high calorie and sugar count, comparable to even other products in this brand, like the Fage Total 2% Cherry Greek Yogurt which has 17 grams of sugar (and I even thought that was high too). I picked up my combined yogurt and honey container for $1.99, and while I liked this somewhat, I think from now on I'll make my own version: a 130-calorie cup of Fage Total 2% Yogurt (with more muscle-building protein and bone-building calcium) and a little dab of honey.
(And the Fage $0.50 off coupon we previously mentioned is still available).
