A winner is me

I just got an e-mail from the loverly Cake Duchess informing me that I won her Chobani yogurt giveaway! *does happy dance*

For anyone not in the know, Chobani is just about the best yogurt out there. I started eating it because it doesn't have high fructose clown syrup, aspartame, sucralose, or any other less-than-savory ingredients. It also has a ton of protein, as it is a Greek yogurt. According to Chobani's website, it takes 3 pounds of milk to make one pound of their yogurt, so it's proportionally creamier, richer, and protein-ier.

If you're a vegetable-arian, Chobani yogurt contains no animal-based thickeners. Yeah, that's right, if you've been eating Yoplait or FiberOne or whatever other fruity yogurts are out there, you're probably eating animal byproducts. Chobani is also low in lactose, so it won't make you poop uncontrollably, either. Hey, I'm just telling it how it is.

In addition to plain nonfat and 2% varieties, Chobani also offers
  • Black Cherry
  • Lemon
  • Blueberry
  • Honey
  • Raspberry
  • Peach
  • Pomegranate
  • Strawberrry
  • Vanilla
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Strawberry Banana
  • Very Berry


  • Honey-nana

If, like me, you live in Minnesota, chances are poor that you'll be able to find more than about 9 of these flavors. It looks like there is a paucity of Lemon, Honey, Mango, Very Berry, and Honey-nana around here. That gives me a sad, since I love lemon-flavored yogurt. And honey-flavored yogurt. And mango-flavored yogurt.

And, if you are hesitant about shelling out $1.40 for a cup of yogurt, Chobani offers a coupon for you to print.

Anyway, I want to extend a big "THANK YOU!" to Cake Duchess and Chobani for giving me the opportunity to gorge myself on delicious yogurts! Looks like someone won't be having a calcium and Vitamin D deficiency again!
