It’s getting to be that time again – where you’ve made a resolution to get fit in time for beach weather, and realize that winter is quickly subsiding. Before you know it, it’ll be time to do that dreaded bathing suit shopping and kick yourself for not starting your bikini body regime sooner. Or maybe it’s just me.
Did you know that according to a recent survey by Yoplait Fiber One, Americans are fed up with flavorless, boring snacks – and claim they are a contributor to diet failure? Pretty interesting – and something I’ve made comments on in the past. Flavorless snacks are boring!
But there’s some hope – with 50 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat, Yoplait Fiber One Blueberry yogurt is a perfect solution, packed with real fruit and the great taste of blueberries that you’ll love. As an added bonus, the deliciously creamy yogurt also contains vitamins A and D and is a good source of calcium. Say goodbye to boring and flavorless!
I’m terrible about remembering to eat anything for breakfast, which means when I do get hungry later, I tend to absentmindedly snack on whatever is available – generally to excess. My downfall, the absentminded part. Or the excess part. Or both. I was thrilled to see that Yoplait Fiber One has come out with a new blueberry version – next to blackberries, blueberries are my favorite fruit!
I was sent a Fiber One Blueberry yogurt gift pack to review. The gift pack included a VIP Coupon for a free sample of the Fiber One Blueberry yogurt, as well as a fitness journal and pen, sport towel, water bottle and blueberry stress ball. Princess Nagger thought the blueberry stress ball was funny, and absconded with it immediately. After all, it looks like a giant blueberry, and is too cool!
When I picked up the yogurt, I noticed that it contains aspartame. Unfortunately, I’m allergic to aspartame, so I have to steer clear as often as possible. It’s not like a typical allergic reaction, no epipen necessary, but aspartame generally gives me an instantaneous headache. Something about that chemical not liking my brain, or vice versa. I still wanted to taste it, though, headache be damned, because it looks so good! So I took a small bite to check out the new flavor, and handed off the rest to Princess Nagger, who is unaffected by aspartame.
The flavor is wonderful – though I could taste the aspartame, so I won’t be throwing caution to the wind and chowing down on this yogurt regularly. Luckily Princess Nagger loved it, too, so she was quite happy to find out that they’re all hers. We put one in the freezer for her to eat later – she loves having her yogurt as a frozen snack. She loved it that way, too! Have you tried the new Yoplait Fiber One Blueberry Yogurt yet?
