A few weeks ago I got an email from Brown Cow, asking me if I wanted to try their new Cream Top Greek Yogurt and blog about it. I was pretty excited about the opportunity to try a new product and share it with my readers. Now being completely honest, I have never been a huge fan of Greek yogurt. I really want to like it, but haven’t in the past. But I thought that I might as well try Brown Cow’s product!
I picked up the yogurt at my local Whole Foods and tried it as soon as I got home. The flavor I was most excited to try was the Maple. I was definitely not disappointed- it was really good! The cream top was my favorite part of the yogurt- it’s a thick layer at the top of the yogurt that is extra sweet. The Maple tasted just like maple and was perfectly sweet. My mom and I both agreed that we would buy the maple flavor in the store.
Next I tried the Blueberry. I didn’t read the container and didn’t realize that this was a fruit on the bottom yogurt and was expecting the actual yogurt to be blueberry flavored. I am not a huge fan of yogurts with fruit on the bottom- it just has a weird texture. I would much rather prefer a blueberry flavored Greek yogurt, with bits of blueberry mixed in. But it certainly didn’t taste bad, it’s just not my thing :)
And finally the vanilla. I wasn’t sure that I would like it because the vanilla Greek yogurt I’ve had before hasn’t been too great. But I actually really liked this! Again, the cream top was my favorite part but the entire thing was nicely flavored and was sweet enough for my crazy sweet tooth ;)
I tried the Plain yogurt (the one in the big container) and it was definitely not sweet enough for me to eat by itself. But I am planning on making some recipes with it, so stay tuned :)
So not only did I really like this Greek yogurt, but Brown Cow is humane certified. I love finding companies that treat animals well! My one main criticism of this yogurt was that the cream top was broken apart when I opened the yogurt cups so it didn’t look very pretty and made it a little harder to eat just the cream top…but it was still my favorite part of the yogurt! I can definitely see myself buying these at the store.
