Summer’s here and the time is right for stocking your freezer with lots of tasty frozen treats, amiright? Sure I am. I have reviewed Frozen Yogurt-Type Snack Bars here on The Gig before and those are great if you really dig the sour taste inherent in most yogurt products. But what if you happen to prefer the taste of ice cream while also desiring the nutritional perks of yogurt? If that’s your deal, have I got a product for you: Yasso brand Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars.

A few weeks back, the folks at Yasso sent me a coupon for a free box of any flavor of their Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars and I finally made my way to Whole Foods to pick some up. Coconut is one of my favorite flavors and these bars are loaded with lot of shaved fresh coconut, so you get coconut in every bite. But the most distinct thing about these bars is that the Greek Yogurt makes them taste rich and creamy like ice cream, but without the tart flavor that you generally get in a frozen yogurt bar. To me, this is very appealing.

Not only do the bars taste delicious, but they are also nonfat and have only 80 calories in each serving, plus they pack 6 grams of protein per bar!  Most importantly, Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars are a natural snack that you can feel good about indulging in, and sharing with your friends and family. They are an ideal cool and refreshing snack to enjoy on a hot summer afternoon!

Yasso Novelty Bars, as they are also called, come in eleven amazing flavors such as Sea Salt Caramel, Raspberry, Mint Chocolate Chip, Mango and Chocolate Fudge, among others, so there is a variety for every taste!

Noosa: The World’s Most Delicious Yoghurt

Previously on Worleygig.com, we have made a claim that Noosa brand Finest Yoghurt is, in fact, the World’s Most Delicious Yoghurt. I’m confident that I have the background and experience to make such a claim, because I’ve been eating yoghurt since the days when it tasted like a cup of sour cream with a blob of jam at the bottom. Yoghurt is a food that I have been sampling for multiple decades, through every fad and every taste sensation up to and including yoghurt that masquerades as a fancy dessert and the current jump-on-the-bandwagon craze, Greek yoghurt. So, when I say that Noosa makes the best tasting yogurt I have eaten in my life, you can take me at my word.

Of course, I’m sure that Noosa would prefer it if, rather than than taking my word for it, you would try for yourself. Recently, the good folks at Noosa were kind enough to send me perhaps a dozen cups of their yogurt to eat and enjoy. I am going to share with you today the reasons why I love this yogurt so much and to suggest that you would probably enjoy it very much as well.

Although it is now made on a dairy farm in Colorado, Noosa is named for a Coastal Area in Australia where the yoghurt was first created.

Perhaps what stands out most for me is Noosa’s wildly appealing, almost velvety consistency. It has the thick richness of Greek yogurt but is lighter and creamier. Noosa also comes in a ton of delicious natural and fruit flavors including Mango, Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry Rhubarb, Honey, Lemon, Tart Cherry (each of which I have tasted personally ) as well as Blueberry, Passion Fruit and Plain.

Each container of Noosa has just the right amount of added fruit and juice to make it lightly sweet and flavorful but to keep the true, tangy essence of real yoghurt. Calorie counts per cup range from 240 to 290, with a fat content that ranges from 11 to 14 g (which is one reason why it tastes so freaking good).

Here is a true story of how I made potentially an entire family into fans of Noosa Yoghurt. Since I had so much in my fridge, I brought a container of Raspberry flavored Noosa to the office to share with my boss. I advised him that it would be the best yoghurt he had ever eaten. After two bites he agreed, declaring, “This is the best yoghurt I’ve ever tasted!” He immediately visited the Noosa website, where he happily discovered that Noosa is sold at several supermarkets in his town. Then he went home and asked his wife to buy some for the family. Voila, New Fans!

Noosa yoghurt comes in 8 ounce resealable containers, so it makes a satisfying midday snack or dessert. And if you want to save a bit to eat later, you can conveniently replace the plastic lid on the cup and know it will be fresh and tasty when you come back to it. As a bonus, if you are a person who has a need for reusable 8 ounce containers, these make perfect little containers for leftovers and small household items (always remember to recycle).

Noosa is the only brand of yoghurt I will ever buy. Please visit Noosa Yoghurt Dot Com to learn more about Noosa Finest Yoghurt and to download a Money Saving Coupon to use towards your next purchase!
