Review of Chobani Greek Yogurt Oats
Disclaimer: product(s) received compliments of BzzAgent and Chobani in exchange for review.
I've had a very busy month due to the impending holidays, client photo sessions and such things. I was of course glad to try the different flavors of Chobani Greek Yogurt 'oats' line for a quick breakfast or snack option on those mornings where I just don't have time to fix my green smoothies or a full breakfast. I found that it was lovely to have the added texture from the steel cut oats. They also resulted in feeling more full compared to normal traditional Chobani, although greek yogurt is naturally more filling than regular yogurt due to the enhanced amount of protein. The flavors themselves weren't bad, but I didn't like all the flavors as much as I'd thought I would. They were each creamy and awesome as usual for Chobani, but Apple Cinnamon was grainy and my least favorite as the taste seemed to be more focused upon cinnamon than apple. Blueberry was good, but wished it had a stronger blueberry flavor, but it was plenty enjoyable. Banana Maple was my favorite of the three I tried and the most true to life. Fitting for a breakfast too. I LOVED that they were gluten free, made with natural ingredients (non-GMO too!) and real fruit and milk from cows not treated with hormones. Overall, for a quick breakfast or snack option, Chobani Oats is a great way to grab and go with far less guilt than a bowl of cereal.
Start your morning with a healthy triple-threat When it comes to getting out the door in the morning, everyone could use a little help. Batman has Alfred, and you've got Chobani® Oats. Each cup has 10 grams of protein, 8 grams of whole grains and 3 grams of fiber. And don't even get us started on the flavors — we're still trying to pick a favorite! Between Blueberry, Apple Cinnamon, Banana Maple and Cranberry, there's some seriously stiff competition. No matter how you slice it, er, spoon it, Chobani® Oats is the perfect way to start your day.

How I spread the Bzz: I was lucky and it was a busy shopping day when I went to buy MORE of the Chobani Oats! Everyone was primarily focused upon purchasing traditional boring sugar yogurt. I told them I was a BzzAgent and receive free samples in exchange for a review. I convinced them to at least try one flavor of the Chobani oats. I told them how they were crafted from natural ingredients with no hormones in the milk used to create them and that they were gluten free. I explained how much healthier greek yogurt was and also steel cut oats. Only a couple men were skeptical, until I told them about the amount of protein.
