Product Review: Voskos Greek Nonfat Yogurt

Here we are again!  This is the third in a series of 5 reviews of Greek Nonfat Yogurt.  Obviously, this is my personal opinion.  I’ve tried Greek yogurt before and not liked it.  I found it very bitter and I didn’t like it at all.  However, I’m trying to lay off the artificial sweeteners, and Greek yogurt has more filling protein in it, so here I am.  I got strawberry in all five flavors to better compare.  First, the facts:

  • Type:  Voskos Greek Nonfat Strawberry Yogurt
  • Serving Size:  1 container, 150g, 5.3oz
  • Nutrition Facts:  Calories-120 (Calories from Fat-0), Total Fat-0g (Saturated Fat-0g, Trans Fat-0g), Cholesterol-5mg, Sodium-65mg, Potassium-170mg, Total Carbohydrates 18g (Dietary Fiber 0g, Sugars 15g), Protein 12g
  • Ingredients: Grade A Pasteurized Skim Milk, Natural Milled Cane Sugar, Strawberries, Modified Corn Starch, Natural Flavors, Red Radish Color, and Live and Active Cultures (S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, L. Casei, and Bifidus)
  • Weight Watchers Points+:  3
  • Price:  $1.50 – Publix, on sale 2/$3

My Opinion:  This one was more on the bitter side too.  I think it tasted sweeter than Oikos Organic, but not as sweet as Liberté.  I definitely like Liberté the best still and at the price point, it’s DEFINITELY a better buy. This one was 1.5x more than the first two I tried.

Objective Comparison of Facts:  Voskos has 10 more calories than Oikos Organic, but 30 less than Liberté.  Voskos is also the first one to have a quantifiable Cholesterol number too at 5.  The other too have both been <5mg.  Voskos is 15mg higher in sodium than Liberté, but 15 higher than Oikos Organic.  Voskos is also the first one to have a figure for Potassium.  For Total Carbs, it’s also right in the middle of the previous too.  It actually has one less  gram of sugar though.  In protein, it’s also right in the middle of the two previous yogurts.  On all other points, they’re the same.

Order of Yumminess, Best to Worst:  1-Liberté, 2-Voskos, 3-Oikos Organic
