Yesterday afternoon I noticed on facebook that Chobani was going to be playing SPOONS. On their website there is a section for the game spoons, when they open it up you can grab a spoon and you will receive a case of chobani yogurt. A few months ago I tried to play. I waited…and waited…and waited for the game to start, and of course when I wasn’t paying attention it started. The gamwas over in a few minutes and I missed it.
This time around I wasn’t going to miss it. I kept reloading their twitter page that’s where they notify you when the game is going to begin). I’ll admit it.. I kept reloading from about 3 p.m. until the game began which I believe was somewhere in the 7 pm hour (I forget). My boyfriend was laughing at me because I kept reloading the page. All of a sudden, it was on! I sat up so fast and tried to grab a spoon. The first one I tried to grab someone else already got. Than I quickly tried to grab another. Isn’t it funny how you t th emouse to go where you want when you are in a time crunch?
Well, guess what? I got a spoon! I won a case of chobani yogurt! I am so excited! I love it so much. I really never feel that way about a food product. I usually go through stages of liking something a lot an dthan that’s it. But no, not with my chobani!
Love Affair Began
Let me tell you how my love affair with Chobani began. Last summer, summer 2009, I was trying to begin to eat healthier. I had heard people talking about greek yogurt, but I just wasn’t sure about it. I bought a few different kinds to try. I’ve tried the Oikos, Brown Cow, Fage, and Yoplait greek yogurts. They were all just alright, except the Yoplait was flat out gross. I had a tough time with the tartness of the greek yogurts. I added maple syrup to sweeten it the first few times I had it. Now the though of adding anything to sweeten it ruins the yogurt for me.
Nothing compared to the Chobani though. All of the flavors are pretty good. I prefer the plain or vanilla and adding my own in, but I’ll eat any of the flavors if they are handed to me. Come September I began babysitting Mon-Fri. I had to bring a lunch and quickly got sick of sandwiches. I wanted something delicious! I began to bring Chobani yogurt, some granola (Mix my granola is still one of my favorites.. I need to order some soon. I highly recommend it to anyone. You can make your own mix or buy a pre made mix.) I got so addicted to eating it everyday. I really think it is good for your stomach too. Helps keep everything functioning the way it’s supposed to.
As you can see, I’ve been eating Chobani consistenly since September. I must always have a few in my fridge otherwise I get nervous that I am going to run out. (By the way,I do not get any compensation or anything from Chobani.. I truly really enjoy their yogurt and wanted to share).
What’s your favorite kind of yogurt?
