Has anyone else seen the episode of Mythbusters where Adam and Jamie perform an experiment to find out if the cereal box is more nutritious than the cereal itself?
It lends itself to my theory that if it’s healthy for you it’s just gotta taste like cardboard. With the exception of a few dishes I have had, this is true; for me.
So imagine what I thought when I heard about new Fiber-One yogurt from Yoplait. It has only 50 calories, 5 grams of fiber (20% of the daily recommended amount,) and 0 grams of fat. My first thought was seriously?!? Have you tasted fat free ranch dressing? Nasty. Anything that has 0 grams of fat just shouldn’t make it in my fridge.
Alas, I am a mother and doggone it if I don’t try to set a better example for my kids. GRRR. I eat my veggies, even peas which taste like what I imagine soggy bird brains taste like, all while making that grimace smile like I’m really enjoying it. Thankfully, I typically like yogurt and my preconceived notion was that this Fiber-One was just going to be lacking flavor.
BOY WAS I WRONG!
I started out with the strawberry flavor first thinking that this was my best shot at having something with a good taste. It was delicious. The yogurt was so creamy and smooth.
Next I moved on to the vanilla flavor. I love vanilla yogurt. Often times I’d rather eat that than vanilla ice cream (I KNOW RIGHT!) I was not disappointed. It had that little bit that I look for when eating vanilla yogurt, that little hint of sourness with the sweet.
In addition to vanilla and strawberry, Fiber-One yogurt also comes in peach and key-lime pie!
Of course I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t say that the only thing I didn’t like was that there just wasn’t enough in that little container! But then it wouldn’t be 50 calories right.. 🙂
So how do you all benefit from my little yogurt taste testing?
