I have to admit, it's the name Chobani Flip Honey Bee Nana Greek Yogurt that I was attracted to. I think it's pretty darn creative and I was curious as to what yogurt with banana flavoring would taste like.
The shape of the Chobani Flip Greek Yogurt stood out among the sea of round containers in the yogurt aisle of the supermarket. It's divided into 2 triangular sections, one of which houses the yogurt with flecks of chocolate scattered throughout, and the other has the fruit mixture - in this case Raspberry.

I tried Chobani 2% All Natural Pineapple Yogurt and enjoyed it so much that I decided to try another flavor, so I picked up the 2% Strawberry Banana variety.
This is a fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt, and it tastes delicious. The 2% yogurt makes all the difference in terms of offering rich, creamy flavor, and the strawberry banana flavor wasn't too sweet. I didn't succeed in stirring mine completely together, but I enjoyed the jelly-like fruit on the bottom. Yum! I was fully satisfied after eating this as a snack, which is saying a lot.
Each 6-ounce container of Chobani 2% All Natural Strawberry Banana Greek Yogurt provides 160 calories, 3 grams of total fat which includes 2 grams of saturated fat (5% and 10% of the daily value), 1 gram of fiber, 17 grams of sugars and 14 grams of protein. There is also 15% of the daily value for calcium.

Ever on a quest to find cheaper plain Greek yogurt, I opted to try the Chobani brand because of the appealing package, in addition to the price, which was $1.69 for a 6 ounce container, versus Fage at $1.99 and up. I had already tried the Chobani 0% Plain Yogurt and liked it, so I decided to try the Chobani 2% Plain to compare it to Fage Total 2% Plain Yogurt.
As with Fage, I liked this better in a 2% version versus the 0% kind. It's a bit less tart, and it just tastes much richer. Plus, the calorie increase isn't very much - 130 calories compared to 100. That's a small price to pay for this delicious taste and a little bit of satiating fat. Speaking of which, each 6 ounce container of Chobani 2% Plain has just 3.5 grams of total fat, 2 grams of which is saturated (10% of the daily value). There is also 7 grams of sugars (no fiber), 17 grams of protein, and 20% of the daily value for calcium.

I love Greek Yogurt and I'm always trying different brands and varieties. On my last shopping trip, my choice was Chobani Plain 0% Yogurt. The price was $1.69 for a 6-ounce container, versus Fage at $1.99 and up (it's as high as $2.49 at a lot of convenience stores near me).
The texture isn't as thick and luscious as Fage. Sure, it's definitely thicker than regular yogurt, but I like the almost whipped feeling that Fage has. As for the taste, it wasn't as sour as the Fage 0%, but it tastes great mixed with either a little bit of sweetener or some honey, and it worked almost as well as Fage for a sour cream stand-in. I much prefer this plain variety to the Vanilla one.

I haven't had much luck with flavored non-fat Greek yogurt, but given my success with yogurts of the low-fat variety, I decided to try again. Chobani brand was on sale for just $1.39 per container at Fairway, a bargain price for Greek yogurt, so I decided to experiment with a new flavor. I found it particularly interesting that the brand offers only one fruit-flavored low-fat yogurt, so I decided to try Chobani Low-fat Pineapple Yogurt.
Upon opening the container I found a thick (but slightly thinner than Fage 2%) yogurt with streaks of pineapple. Most of the good stuff was at the bottom, and I stirred it up, taking in the aroma. Normally I'm not a huge pineapple fan, but I like it better in products than by itself (strange, I know). I spooned up some yogurt and tasted, finding it to be delicious. I've come to the conclusion that a little bit of fat makes a huge difference when it comes to the taste of Greek yogurt. This yogurt was incredibly creamy, and the pineapple flavoring wasn't too sweet at all .
