Review: YoCrunch Greek (YUM)

When I was growing up, yogurt was the breakfast or snack in our house that was fast, convenient and always available. I only sort of liked it. Really. When I went to Germany, I LOVED German yogurt, and when I went to Greece, I LOVED Greek yogurt, but those were not available here. Well, over the past couple years, Greek yogurt has become more common and more available here in the USA.

I was really happy to try the new YoCrunch Greek yogurt recently, and I want to tell you all about it!

What is it?

From them:
YoCrunch has introduced the first Greek yogurt with convenient mix in granola topping attached. With 11 grams of protein and a sweeter flavor, YoCrunch’s Greek Yogurt is a value that’s available in four flavors: Strawberry, Blueberry, Peach and Honey. YoCrunch Greek is an affordable $1.09 to $1.39 per six ounce container as compared to nearly $2 for brands with similar sizes.
What makes it different from other yogurt?

1-it is mom and kid friendly in that it is healthy AND it tastes great (without the "tang" that many kids dislike).

2- It has 3 to 6 grams more protein than traditional yogurt.

3-The obvious big difference is the inclusion of granola!

What did I think?

I tried the Honey and the Strawberry flavors. I liked both flavors but, honey is my favorite flavor of Greek yogurt period! I love it. And I have to admit something here. I am not a huge granola fan, especially not in yogurt. Most people that know me personally probably already know that I cannot stand eating anything that has any kind of mushy bread or grain type of texture. I cannot stand cereal with milk, or dumplings in soup, or even sandwiches made in the morning to eat at lunch (the bread gets too soggy). Seriously I shutter to think about it, and typing about it was really hard for is one of my weird quirks.

So...I do not usually eat granola in yogurt. However, I always try new things in the way they were intended to be eaten before I judge them. So, I ate the yogurt with the granola in it. The way it is packaged so the fruit is on the bottom and the granola (separately) on the top makes it so your granola stays crisp and doesn't get soggy in the yogurt (I am sure it would get soggy if you left it forever, but your won't-you will gobble this yummy stuff down!!)

All in all I have to say, I liked the yogurt-it was a good Greek yogurt, and the addition of the granola on top makes it a great deal-especially for the many friends I have that buy yogurt and granola separately for the purpose of eating them together!!

What's the deal?

As mentioned above, YoCrunch Greek is an affordable $1.09 to $1.39 per six ounce container as compared to nearly $2 for brands with similar sizes. AND I was given a few coupons to share. I was so excited about this yogurt that I already shared a couple coupons with friends here, but I have a  couple more left, so if you want a coupon, please email me and I will send out the coupons on a first come first serve basis. (My email is
