Do you ever have to tell your family that certain foods in the house are off limits? Thanks to MyBlogSpark I got a coupon to try a new Yoplait yogurt flavor this week. I picked it up at the store and wanted to be sure that the rest of the family didn’t eat it before I had a chance to try it. After I tried it I knew I never would have gotten any if they’d gotten to it first, because it’s that good.
The yogurt I got to try is Yoplait Yo-Plus Blueberry Acai. Let me start by sharing what I learned about Yo-Plus and Acai, as I’d never had either before. Yo-Plus yogurts are a good source of fiber, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin D. What makes Yo-Plus yogurts different is that they contain a probiotic culture called Bifidobacterium, which is proven to help regulate your digestive health year-round. Acai is a berry that is produced by the Acai palm tree native to Central and South America. It’s pronounced ah-sah-EE, not ak-eye as I thought. From my reading I learned that Acai is full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids.
I’d never tried any of the Yoplait Yo-Plus yogurts before. The container is shorter and wider than regular yogurt containers, and I thought it stacked more easily in the frig and was easier to get the yogurt out of. The Blueberry Acai flavor is very creamy but isn’t a custard style. One 4 ounce container is one serving and has 110 calories. I found the taste to be sweet (but not too sweet) and more like mixed berries than blueberries. I really enjoyed the flavor quite a bit because it had such a great combination of flavor and texture.
Yo-Plus is now offering a $1.50 off downloadable coupon for a 4-pack of yogurt at http://bricks.coupons.com/bstart.asp?o=55277&ci=1&c=GM&p=vZpuCdX5. You can also grab a $1.00 off coupon at http://www.yo-plus.com.
