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:
