Bobby’s Chobani Taste Test {Video + Giveaway}

by Jenn (eating bender) on February 12, 2012

Before we get to the goods, I will allow you all the chance to peek inside our closet. Yes, I know. Try not to get too excited about this fantastic opportunity. 😉 It’s the subject of today’s #FebPhotoADay.

Space is at a premium, so we split it 50/50. As you can see, Bobby’s wardrobe is primarily comprised of shirts for work (his massive t-shirt collection is in the dresser), while I, on the other hand, struggle to color coordinate. It’s not ready for the cover of Real Simple, but it work for us, and that’s what matters.

Moving on to much more aesthetically pleasing subject matter…

I was recently contacted by the team at Chobani regarding their three newest flavors of Greek yogurt: 0% blood orange, 0% apple cinnamon and 2% passion fruit. As a long time fan, I eagerly said yes and couldn’t wait to try them all out. This morning, I did a taste test with all three. I’ve shared my thoughts below, but ultimately couldn’t resist getting Bobby’s opinion, too.

0% Blood Orange: This was the first new flavor variety I tried, and I have to say it wasn’t my favorite. The description on the website is accurate – it is a uniquely tart fruit! That said, keep in mind 1) I am not a huge fan of tart to begin with and 2) my experience with blood oranges is extremely limited. I’ve also never been someone who eats grapefruit, so it came as no surprise that this was a bit too tangy for me. If you are someone who loves citrus, though, I think this would definitely be the flavor for you.

0% Apple Cinnamon: I was a bit apprehensive about this one because I am not normally a huge apple cinnamon fan (in oatmeal, for example). But I was very pleasantly surprised by how good this tasted! There were real apples and cinnamon mixed into every bite, so it tasted more authentic than any other “flavored” product I’ve had in the past. If you’ve ever had scalloped apples, that is the best comparison I can give you. I would definitely consider purchasing this one on my own, and as you’ll see in the video, it was also Bobby’s favorite.

2% Passion Fruit: I may have been biased toward this one from the start, since the PR rep I worked with had confessed it was her favorite of the bunch. But she was absolutely spot on because passion fruit was fantastic. I had never tried the 2% yogurts before and really enjoyed the extra creaminess. I also thought it was awesome that there were real seeds mixed with every bite. This yogurt had a very tropical feel to it and by far the most pleasant after taste of all three. I would easily buy it again myself.

Now the moment we’ve all been waiting for…Bobby’s Chobani taste test! Check out his thoughts below:

Thank you, Bobby and Chobani!

I’m all over this – I love Chobani yogurt! I would love to try the Blood Orange, actually!


2 Kristen H February 12, 2012 at 9:42 pm

The apple cinnamon is awesome, but I am really interested in the Blood Orange.


3 Rachel February 12, 2012 at 10:09 pm

I haven’t been able to find any of the new flavors! I really want to try the apple cinnamon!!


4 Nancy February 12, 2012 at 10:15 pm

I like sweet yogurt so I’m thinking apple cinnamon!


5 Molly February 12, 2012 at 10:33 pm

I reallyyyy want to try the apple cinnamon!! I hope I win!!


6 Jessica F February 12, 2012 at 10:35 pm

I’d like to try blood orange!


7 Jose Watson February 12, 2012 at 10:44 pm

I LOVE Chobani and can’t wait to try the passion fruit!


8 Vickie A. February 12, 2012 at 10:45 pm

I would like to try the apple cinnamon or blood orange, those sound pretty interesting.


9 Amy Campbell February 12, 2012 at 10:46 pm

All these flavors sound aaaamazing (I have yet to eat a Chobani I haven’t enjoyed!) However, I am most curious about the passion fruit as I had my first passion fruit experience on my honeymoon in Hawaii, and I have been searching for passion fruit flavored things since. Not easy to find!


10 Angela Ten Clay February 13, 2012 at 12:04 am

One I love your comment that bobby looks like a highlighter – hilarious!! Two didn’t know he player soccer…so does Michael! And three definitely passion fruit. Sounds delicious and love the idea of extra creamy!


11 Jenn (eating bender) February 14, 2012 at 1:03 pm

Haha – thank you! And how awesome that both he and Michael play soccer. If only we lived closer, they could play on the same team. :)


12 atenclay February 14, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I know he would love that! It definitely is too bad. :) But if we see you guys sometime this year — they can talk soccer!!


13 Tiffany February 13, 2012 at 1:19 am

The apple cinnamon sounds really yummy!


14 squigglefloey February 13, 2012 at 5:06 am

Would love to try apple cinammon!


15 Jess p February 13, 2012 at 6:31 am

Apple!!! It flies off the shelves at my kroger


16 Erica February 13, 2012 at 6:33 am

You guys are too cute :). Dont enter me because I got the package too, but my favorite is the apple cinnamon-SO yummy. And I agree with Angela, I started laughing when you referred to Bobby as a highlighter


17 withasideofhope February 13, 2012 at 6:34 am

Apple cinnamon for sure! :)


18 elizabeth @ the kitchen counsel February 13, 2012 at 8:39 am

hmm, i think i’m most excited to try the passion fruit! but, to be honest, they all sound absolutely delicious.


19 Mara @ What's for Dinner? February 13, 2012 at 8:40 am

I’m dying to try the passion fruit and it’s been sold out EVERYWHERE!!!


20 Michelle February 13, 2012 at 8:51 am

I was lucky enough to find the new flavors at my local whole foods. I love the apple cinnamon & passion fruit.


21 Emilie @ Emilie's Enjoyables February 13, 2012 at 9:01 am

Um definitely the apple cinnamon for me!


22 runningthewindycity February 13, 2012 at 9:16 am

I’ve tried them and my favorite is definitely apple cinnamon.

Also I love your spoons, where did you get them?


23 Megan (Braise The Roof) February 13, 2012 at 10:33 am

Alright, I’ll take your extra blood oranges if you want. 😉 I think that’s the flavor that I’m the most excited about!


24 Kristie February 13, 2012 at 11:12 am

I’ve tried the apple cinnamon and blood orange and loved them both… I’m just apprehensive about the seeds in the passion fruit one. I’d say apple cinnamon would make my most happy though – it really tastes as close to pie as yogurt could get when you add granola :).


25 Kate February 13, 2012 at 11:14 am

Definitely the apple cinnamon!


26 jessica February 13, 2012 at 11:15 am

Apple cinnamon sounds amazing!!!


27 Julie K February 13, 2012 at 11:59 am

Blood Orange!! I love the tart :)


28 consciousincollege February 13, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Pomegranate!! :)


29 Alison February 13, 2012 at 12:31 pm

I LOVE chobani, I eat it every morning for breakfast at work. The apple cinnamon flavor sounds like its right up my alley. I would be interested to try the Passionfruit too, i have never tried their 2% yogurt :)


30 Must Come Hungry February 13, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I love apple cinnamon anything and have been unable to find their new flavors in stores by me :( but the passion fruit sounds so good too!


31 Lori Z. February 13, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I really want to try the Passion fruit but haven’t been able to find it!


32 Lindsay @ Salt, Sun & Sanity February 13, 2012 at 3:32 pm

I’ve been really loving cinnamon in everything lately, so I’d love to try the new apple cinnamon flavor! Would make a great snack paired with apples and peanut butter :)


33 cruisekitten February 13, 2012 at 6:25 pm

They all sound absolutely yummy! I think I may be partial to the Blood Orange though….


34 BroccoliHut February 13, 2012 at 7:14 pm

I’d love to try the passion fruit, as Seth stole it out of my fridge before I could sample that flavor. Harumph.


35 Nicole G February 13, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Since I’ve tried the apple cinnamon Chobani already (couldn’t resist buying it myself!) – I’d like to try the Blood Orange. I’ve never had a blood orange by itself nor have I ever had greek yogurt mixed with citrus so I’m intrigued =)


36 phoebe February 13, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Ahhh they all look so good! I would loove to be able to try the Passion Fruit, though!


37 Mama B February 13, 2012 at 8:40 pm

The human highlighter knows his stuff 😉 I’m guessing I’d like the apple cinnamon especially if it tastes like apple cinnamon oatmeal.


38 teabagginit February 13, 2012 at 10:38 pm

passion fruit, for sure! if i’m going to eat flavored yogurt, it’s got to be something unusual and interesting!


39 Joy February 13, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Oh I’d love to try the blood Orange – I heart tart


40 Kate A. February 14, 2012 at 12:05 am

Apple Cinnamon sounds delicious!


41 Shannon February 14, 2012 at 7:02 am

haven’t tried the blood orange, but I LOVED the apple cinnamon :)


42 Julie L February 14, 2012 at 10:31 am

apple cinnamon thanks


43 Brittany Banks February 14, 2012 at 12:52 pm

I could eat Apple, Cinnamon anything all day! I’d love to try that!


44 butterjessfly February 14, 2012 at 12:59 pm

I’ve tried the Apple Cinnamon already next I’d like to try Blood Orange!


45 Paige February 14, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I’ve had the apple cinnamon and love it (not as good as my beloved Pineapple flavor though!) so for the purpose of your question, passion fruit is my choice. :)


46 Merritt February 14, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Chobani is my absolute favorite! I’ve already tried the apple cinnamon variety, and it was amazing! Now I’m dying to try the blood orange, which I’ve heard is just as great.


47 Alyssa @ Don't Look Down February 14, 2012 at 11:32 pm

I think they all like great but I really want to try the Passion Fruit. Can’t wait to find these in my grocery store!


48 Tracey February 15, 2012 at 1:17 am

Wow, thank you for such a generous giveaway! I love Chobani and while all three new flavors sound terrific, the Apple Cinnamon is the one I’m most excited to try!


49 Gina M Maddox February 15, 2012 at 10:45 am

I can’t wait to try apple cinnamon. Thanks for the chance to win!


50 Michelle February 15, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Passionfruit would be my pick!!! Can’t get me any of those flavors here in Boston.

Hope everything is going well Jenn!! <3


51 Emily Lombardo February 15, 2012 at 10:27 pm

I am partially obsessed with almost everything apple cinnamon flavored and I can’t find this yogurt in any grocery stores around here! If I was really a smart consumer, I’d go request it! But here I am instead hopefully crossing my fingers for a giveaway along with other dedicated blogging yogurt fans! =)

(But don’t call me lazy! You try typing with fingers crossed! haha)


52 Dana Myers February 16, 2012 at 6:08 am

I think I’d leave the apple alone and go for the more intriguing-sounding blood orange and passion fruit! I always love a little crunch in my yogurt, so I’m leaning more towards the passion…


53 Ashlei February 16, 2012 at 11:58 am

I’d love to try the blood orange flavor.


54 Katie R February 16, 2012 at 7:48 pm

I would love to try the apple cinnamon!


55 Julie February 16, 2012 at 9:31 pm

I’d be interested in trying the blood orange.
