I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Clever Girls on behalf of Dannon. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program but my opinions are my own.

When I told the girls we’re going to try another Greek Yogurt, I heard whines so loud, followed with the “Do we have too!?” But, I told them that “Dannon® Oikos® 0% Fat Berry Flavors beat Chobani 2-1 in a taste test!*”
Not convinced, then they saw the commercial Saturday…”Well…that’s interesting…” the 2 whiners shared, with a grin, still hoping not to have to try it. When the youngest ran to get the mail, there was our package…”but, Mama…”
I truly believe that they were both SO relieved they were fasting, subhanallah!
So, they tried to turn the attention away from themselves as they said “but…JuJu doesn’t have to try it!”…because she’s the one and only non-yogurt eater in our family…”Oh yes she does!” I replied.
So, we picked them out yesterday, and I had them ready for suhoor. Of course I tried first. “Hmm…not bad…it’s actually not inedible”. They looked at me oddly, so I insisted “really!” So, our top yogurt-lover joined me, and well…”not bad”. The little one, said “nope, it still has that creamy-think taste”, which we both agreed upon. It wasn’t as difficult to make it through the whole one cup…interestingly we didn’t even noticed that JuJu was taking her time eating, that by the time the adhan called, we noticed that her 3-spoonfuls were still in the cup. Hmm…she’ll have her taste test in about 2.5 more hours.
“Dannon® Oikos® is created through an authentic Greek straining process which gives it a rich and creamy-thick texture.” I think it’s the creamy-thick texture, that we haven’t yet acquired a test for, but with 3 more cups in our fridge, inshaAllah, we should be able to finish this set unlike the other brand.
We’re not a fruit-on-the-bottom type of yogurt family, so we tried the traditional blended strawberry. However, we got the traditional raspberry, another traditional-strawberry, and one strawberry-fruit-on-the-bottom as well.
