Chobani Greek Yogurt – I Won a Yummy Prize!

So a couple of weeks ago, I posted a comment on a blog I read regularly written by Katy Widrick. I honestly posted the comment because her balance issues made me laugh – they are so like my own! However, Katy was also doing a Chobani yogurt giveaway that day, and…. I won!

I really thought that I’d get a coupon for a free tub or yogurt (I was also hoping they’d tell me where I could find it in Winnipeg, I’ve never seen it here). Instead, I got a call on Wednesday that my yogurt would be arriving the next day by overnight courier! Wow!

When Bruce got home form work on Thursday, he found this:

I had him toss it in the fridge for me, and when I got home, I opened it up.

Inside, I found several ice packs covering not one, not two, but THREE large tubs of yogurt!

I’ve read so much about Chobani Greek yogurt, I was thrilled to try it. So far, I like it much better than the other brand of plain Greek yogurt I’ve tried, it’s not as bitter tasting. I substituted it for sour cream in a salad recipe for Christmas, and it worked perfectly, making it a much healthier dish. Now I’m looking forward to trying some different flavours of Chobani when I travel to Florida next month. (I really want to try pineapple).

I was also super impressed with how they packed and shipped the yogurt to me – there was no risk of this yogurt not arriving still cold and ready to eat.

So thank you Katy for the contest, and thank you Chobani for the fantastic yogurt! 🙂

    How exciting to win something! I won a $50 gift certificate to my favorite restaurant in a random weekly drawing because I left a message on their wall saying how much I loved it. Anyway, Chobani is great. It’s my favorite ‘brand’ name greek yogurt. My other fave is the Safeway store brand. I love Chobani’s mango. YUM!!!

    congrats! Enjoy the yogurt.

    p.s. I make smoothies from them every Sat and Sun. One container of the yogurt (6oz?), one cup milk, one tablespoon splenda and one cup fruit. My fave is peaches and mango.

      Mango?? They have MANGO? Must try that! The best I can get up here is a peach-passionfruit that I love, but costs $1.49 a 6 oz container – too much! That peach mango smoothie sounds terrific too.
