Chobani Champions Review + Giveaway

My son is at the age (13 mo) where he wants EVERYTHING that mommy and daddy eat and drink.  Thankfully, we eat healthy about 95% of the time, so some of our good habits have already rubbed off on him (I will not go into detail about the other 5% of the time!).  My husband and I are huge Chobani fans, and I’m happy to say that my son has been eating Chobani Greek Yogurt since he was about 10 months old.

The grocery store we shop at has a limited variety of children’s yogurt – I had never seen or heard of Chobani Champions yogurt before – UNTIL I received an email from a representative at Chobani.  She offered to send some samples of the two new flavors – Vanilla Chocolate Chunk and Orange Vanilla. Talk about knowing exactly how to get to my heart: sending me free samples of a product for me makes me happy but sending me samples for my little man puts me over the moon!

What is Chobani Champions yogurt??
– First greek yogurt made for kids
– Contains 20% of Daily Vitamin D and 10% of Daily calcium
– Comes in pre-portioned, 3.5oz cups (each containing just 100 calories)
– 100% Natural – no artificial colors, preservatives, flavors or sweeteners added
– Four flavors: Orange Vanilla, Vanilla Chocolate Chunk, Honey-Nana, and VerryBerry
For all of the information on Chobani Champions Yogurt, check out their FAQ page on their website!

I wasted no time giving the Chobani Champions a try.  The night the package arrived in the mail, my son decided he did not want what I had made for dinner.  I opened the fridge to see what leftovers or quick meal I could put together for him to eat when I saw the Chobani Champions sitting in the fridge. No brainer. I chose the Vanilla Chocolate Chunk.  Within 5 minutes, the entire container was emptied and my son was asking for “more”.

What I love about Chobani Champions Yogurt
– Perfect sized containers for my son – he can’t eat an entire Chobani yogurt so I would either have to finish his (not the worst thing in the world!) or toss what was left.
– We’ve only tried the two new flavors (Vanilla Chocolate Chunk and Orange Vanilla) but my son loves both of them!
– Although they are made for children, adults can eat them too – great size and only 100 calories – perfect for an afternoon snack. I’ve eaten the Vanilla Chocolate Chunk at night when I get a sweet tooth – satisfies my craving without eating unhealthy.

    1. My favorite yogurt flavor is plain with honey. For years it was peach, but after 30 years I finally burnt out. Haha

    2. My favorite is plain chobani topped with peanuts and a little bit of honey. It’s my fav breakfast or snack. I have 3 boys ages 4, and 9 months. These would be great, they love my chobani!

    3. I love vanilla flavor. I know- boring. But really it’s not! Bc I can make it anything I want with fruit or anything else

    4. My all-time favorite yogurt flavor is peach, though I’m really digging Chobani’s strawberry banana right now. I also really want to try the vanilla chocolate chunk!

    6. I am excited to check these out! My kids eat Gogurt Simple but I bet these are even a little healthier for them and I like them for me too! I love greek yogurt with honey–that’s my favorite flavor.

    7. Thank you for such a generous giveaway! I love Chobani and my favorite yogurt flavors are their Plain, Vanilla and Peach!

    8. I’m following you on Twitter via @serene_streams and tweeted this giveaway post too :) Thanks so much

    9. My favorite flavor is no flavor – that way I can put in my own fresh/frozen fruit and create my own flavor concoction! :)

      • I love the “verry’ berry flavor , but truly dislike the vanilla chocolate chunk its horrible artificial vanilla flavor, wish they would have used actual vanilla how difficult would that be?

    10. I actually saw a comment on Twitter about this and that’s how I found you. I LOVE Chobani’s Champions. I have been eating 2 or more a day ever since I found them at the supermarket! I like the berry kind but I’m pretty sure the chocolate chunk would be my favorite if I could find it at the store!
