Yogurt Taste Test

August 30, 2011


We have just completed our third in our 2011 series of food taste tests, and this time it was vanilla yogurts. I piked up nine variations of vanilla yogurt from our local grocery, divided them into egg carton cups, and shuffled.

Goooooo science!

Unfortunately, there were NO favorites in the group of yogurts we tried…only more and less offensive yogurts. You can bet we’ll be doing this again with another set of brands in the near future.

These earned the title of Most Offensive Yogurt:

  • Stonyfield Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt (vanilla nonfat) – This was (according to who you ask) goat cheesy, disgusting, weird, gross, and bad. 
  • Chobani Greek Yogurt (vanilla nonfat) – This was “plain”, “no flavor”, and “bad”. Perhaps we’re not fans of greek yogurt….
  • Stonyfield Organic (nonfat French Vanilla) – not cohesive, superficial, watery. Gelatin. “Probably has additives.”

These had varying degrees of meh:

  • Stonyfield Organic Yobaby (vanilla) – Creamy, tangy, not too sweet. Gelatinous. “Okay texture.” “Extra flavor, not good.”
  • Activa (lowfat vanilla) – Creamy, too sweet, menthol ending. Good texture. “Stevia?” (No…gelatin and fructose.)
  • Stonyfield Organic (lowfat french vanilla) – Less tangy, crisp, feels like snot. Flat. Prolly no additives. (True)
  • WholeSoy & Co Organic Soy (vanilla) – Honey taste, tangy. Greek? (No.)
  • Organics Vanilla Bean Blended Lowfat Yogurt
  • One other one that I forgot to write down…that’s how memorable it was.

    Y, it looks like you left out the grossest of them all, the soy-based one.
    This one was weird tasting to say the least but when compared directly against one of the others it turned downright GROSS.
