New Product- Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt

First it was the rise of froyo. Now people are crazy for greek yogurt! Ben & Jerry caught on and are now making a product to satisfy both cravings.

I saw a billboard on the freeway and decided I had to try this new creation.  It comes in Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Banana Peanut Butter, Strawberry Shortcake and Blueberry Vanilla Graham.  I got the first two, as seen above.

The verdict? It’s pretty good but nothing unbelievable. It is less dense than their traditional  ice cream and has a slight tang.  If you’re a peanut butter lover, the banana peanut butter will satisfy you. I liked this better than the raspberry chunk which tasted kind of syrupy to me.

How does the Greek measure up nutritionally to the traditional B&J’s? It has slightly fewer calories, less fat, less saturated fat and less cholesterol. It has a comparable amount of sugar but more calcium than the traditional ice cream.  I wouldn’t say that it’s “healthy” but a slightly healthier alternative.  Next time I see it on sale, I’m going to snag a carton of the Blueberry Vanilla Graham.
