The Gogurt Has Grown Up

New Gogurts

February 25, 2015   8 Comments

Gogurts have been around for a while now and they are not going anywhere. My kids scream “Gogurt” as we drive by them (quickly) in the supermarket.

There is some good news. First of all, Yoplait (Gogurt creators) has gotten rid of high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors in their Gogurts. Of course, they are still 9 grams of sugar in a 2 ounce serving.

The other good news is there are some new players on the block with some tasty and healthier choices.

Siggi's is my daughter’s favorite yogurt and I think she likes it because it isn’t too sweet.

Here are the nutrition facts:

60 calories, 1 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 7 g carbohydrates, 6 g sugar, 5 g protein, 0 g fiber, 30 mg sodium, 1 Points+

I like these enough to eat them myself and they are a great grab-and-go snack to toss into your lunchbox.

You can find Siggi’s yogurt using their Store Locator. Call the store to ensure they are selling the yogurt tubes as they are not in all stores YET.

Chobani has jumped into the ring with their tube of yogurt. My children’s favorite flavor is strawberry and it tastes like the regular Chobani yogurt put in a tube.

Here are the nutrition facts.

50 calories, 1.0 g fat, 0.05 g saturated fat, 7.0 g carbohydrates, 6 g sugar, 5 g protein, 0 g fiber, 25 mg sodium, 1 Points+

I don’t think the taste is as good as Siggi’s BUT these can be found in Target and other major supermarkets – check out their Chobani locator.

Both Siggi’s and Chobani tubes have 3 grams more protein than Yoplait Gogurts and 3 grams less of sugar. Gotta love that!

Finally, don’t be afraid to make your own! With these special food-grade silicon tubes you can pack a reusable container with plain yogurt and some jam for a wonderful on-the-go yogurt.

Make Your Own Gogurt For A Healthy (and Green) Snack

Gogurts, in case you didn't know, are tubes of yogurt made by Yoplait. Every time, I pass the yogurt section with my children they demand them....

I always steered clear of any food with cartoons or characters geared toward kids. Nowadays there are so many ways to research what we eat, wish it was this easy 25 years ago.
Here is a simple chart ranking yogurt.

I feel bad because I do get gogurts for my kids. I have a large family and it's just easier for me. I think that this summer I'll look into purchasing some containers for better yogurt choices! Thanks snack girl!

I love Siggi's yogurt! Of course I live 2 hours from civilization so I don't get it often. I should look at ordering online!

I always avoided the tube yogurts until Chobani started making them. Now I get them for my daughter for breakfast and I freeze them so she can take one to school for a snack. I also get the Stonyfield brand for flavor variation (Chobani keeps changing the flavors and right now offers some odd ones). Only when we are completely out and the store is out of those 2 brands do I buy the Gogurts from Yoplait.

Hi, can you tell me if the Siggi's yogurt is tangy/sour like the Chobani? I buy the Chobani tubes for my girls but end up eating them bc they aren't huge fans of greek yogurt. I've ended up just buying the "simply gogurts" but there us still a lack of protein and two much sugar. Thanks!

I just had a Siggi's tube for snack! I work at s preschool and it is quick, easy and nutritious. But I've never seen other adults eat them. Thanks.

@Bryn - I think they are sweet but I am not a kid. They are more sour than Yoplait and more like the Chobani tube.
I hope this helps!
