Vanilla Chobani and Lara Bar Delivery

Happy Thursday readers!

Today I sampled the first of my Chobani samples. I have to admit, I was a skeptic because I've only had Chobani once and it wasn't my favorite. However, after this I admit I am a convert. The first thing I want to mention about Chobani are their prices. Most places I have seen them sold for around $1.20, about HALF the price of other greek yogurts. This is a huge deal for me, as I was fairly certain that my substitute-teacher budget could no longer support my greek yogurt habit. I decided to try the Vanilla today, for a nice neutral start. I brought it to work for lunch and it was delicious! I liked how it was vanilla-flavored without being overpoweringly sweet or fake-tasting. The texture was great as well- it had that 'greek-yogurt thickness' without being so intense that you felt like you could not swallow. Since I did bring it to lunch, it had been outside the fridge for awhile, but was still pleasantly cool and refreshing. And with 16 grams of protein? It doesn't get much better than that, does it? I'm excited to try the rest of these yogurts- you better believe it won't take me long to test them all!

Yes, I realize this picture is was early.....

I also received a delivery from Larabar! I have four flavors to try and review, which I took a picture of, but seem to have disappeared. I am very excited as these bars are my favorite and I haven't had much exposure to all of the different types. Most exciting for me in probably the PB&J, just because I've heard such good things about it throughout the blog community. Reviews will come as they are eaten! Thanks Larabar!

Today was a normal day for me. Early run, work, then a swim. It had been much too long since my body was in the pool and it felt great. Now I'm procrastinating cleaning my horribly dirty apartment. I'm also trying to find a job for tomorrow. Ahh, unpredictable! Don't teachers get sick anymore??

  1. i've actually never tried chobani. or any type of greek yogurt for that matter.

    i'd bet the kiddos would want a sub too! i remember it was like christmas morning when my regular teacher would be sick

  2. There was some guy coughing up a lung at Walgreens today. Gross! I'm sure he wasn't a teacher either. That's exciting about your Larabars. I like the coconut cream pie. The other I've found to be too sweet or just bleh. I'll have to see what you think about them! Do you have any favorite flavors?
