Oui French Style Yogurt by Yoplait

Oui French Style Yogurt by Yoplait is a wonderfully
thick though not too thick,
creamy but not so much,
sweet but not sickening so,
and it comes in the cutest glass jar with a foil top.

Choose from Plain, Peach, Lemon, Coconut, Vanilla,
Black Cherry, Blueberry, Strawberry, Blackberry, Mango,
Key Lime and Raspberry.
My first jar was Coconut, MMM
There's a nice amount of shredded Coconut
in the bottom to stir in.

My gripes:
The price - I paid $1.69
Calorie Count - 170
Sugar Content - 15g
Fat - 8g

All-in-all though, I'll be trying the other flavors as special treats,
but not for daily consumption.

I really like Oui, but my current greek-style yogurt love is Noosa. Their strawberry-rhubarb is delicious!

I like those cute little Oui jars, tres elegante!

For the price (I got mine on sale at $1.25 a jar), I was underwhelmed. I'm still happy with buying my kilo of Fage, then adding fresh/frozen raspberries or cherries, or chopped walnuts with a tiny bit of craft honey. Can't wait until fresh peaches are in season.

Yeah, I was going to add to my 'review' that I'll stick with
our fave from way back, Yoplait Light, with the all those
lovely different flavors like Orange Crème, oh my gosh!
It tastes just like an Orange Cream-sicle
AND it's only 90 calories
AND $0.60/carton here.

I tried the Oui yogurt and IMHO it's not that great. BUT neither is Dannon any more.
I LOVE Brown Cow whole milk cream top yogurt and homemade yogurt best.

We buy the coconut and the mango when we gat a bogo coupon, or sometimes even a free one.

My wife like to keep the little glass cups for some reason. I use them for mise en pkace occasionally.

I was going to keep that jar (as to why I posted a photo of it empty )
but I promised myself no more 'keeping that `cuz I could ... ' I tend to be a bit of a packrat
But I will look for coupons!

I'll have to look for that brand here. I don't think I've seen it, but I haven't looked. I would buy a few to try it, and for the cute little glass cups.

Y'know Cheryl if you can find them with a coupon or
at a better price then I did, do try it, it's different.

And I agree MsM, Dannon has become very lackluster, I haven't tried Brown Cow yet...

I saved the 2 Oui jars I have to put votive candles in in case of power failure.

I LOVE Brown Cow Coffee yogurt. I use the plain as a starter when I make homemade yogurt.

I just checked if my store has Noosa. It does BUT at $3.00+ is a bit steep. Brown cow is $1.39. But Noosa has a strawberry rhubarb flavor that I may try.

MsM, DH and I eat a lot of yogurt and we LOVE the whole milk, full fat stuff,
like Trader Joe's, MMM but it's only as a treat, dessert if you will, but I will look for Brown Cow next time I hit the Mega-Mart
