Yoplait Greek Yogurt Prize Pack Giveaway! (CLOSED)

I was thrilled to be selected through My Blog Spark to do a taste test and giveaway for new Yoplait Greek Yogurt. I've seen a lot about Greek yogurt lately and I've been wondering what the difference is between that and regular yogurt. I knew that it contained more protein, but that was all I knew.

With 12 grams of protein -- twice that found in leading yogurts-- new Yoplait Greek nourishes from the inside out. Available in four delicious flavors, Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla and Plain, the brand’s newest offering has a unique thick and creamy texture with the unmatched taste expected of Yoplait.
I purchased a Strawberry for me and a Honey Vanilla for my husband to test. The consistency didn't bother me. It was thicker than regular yogurt, but that didn't matter much to me. The flavor of the strawberry was a bit sour for my taste. The honey vanilla had a much smoother flavor. I was bothered by the chalky feel in my mouth and the strange after taste. I was unable to finish my tub of strawberry, but I did take several bites out of the honey vanilla.
I think this type of yogurt will be better for cooking or blending into smoothies than eating straight out of the tub. I will purchase the plain next time I have a recipe which calls for yogurt, mainly because the protein content and the calcium content will make for a healthier ingredient. But, this will not replace my Yoplait Fiber One or my Yoplait Whips that I prefer.
The nice people at My Blog Spark have offered one of my readers a prize pack exactly like the one I received! It includes two coupons for free tubs of yogurt, a robe, slippers and some items which will help you create a spa in your own home and help you relax!
 *This coupon offer for a free cup of Yoplait Greek yogurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Dakota, and Tennessee.

Go HERE to print a coupon for Yoplait Greek as well as check out recipes! 
(I want to try the lemon blueberry muffins!)

Since I am allergic to fructose (in all fruit), I chose and really do like Vanilla. And I am so happy to see flavors like honey vanilla, maple vanilla, etc appearing on the shelves!

Strawberry is my favorite flavor, but after trying the Yoplait Greek strawberry, I found it way too sour and unappealing for my tastes. I definitely want to try the honey vanilla!
