The Gogurt Has Grown Up
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.
