Breyers YoCrunch review and giveaway - 10 winners!!

Do you love yogurt? I do. But not that plain stuff. Sorry, that's just too... plain for me. I like yogurt with fruit, like peaches and strawberries. Yum!

But I never really thought about adding anything else to the yogurt. Like nuts, perhaps. Or even granola.


Breyers YoCrunch has given tasty fruity yogurt an added healthy dimension by pairing yogurt with delicious crunchies. And each individual serving is only 100 calories!

I received a sample pack of YoCrunch and was instantly impressed with the packaging. Same wonderful Breyers yogurt but with strawberries added AND a separate attached little container of loose granola crunchies. Separate so that the granola doesn't get soggy, of course.

So all you do is pop the top on the crunchies, peel off the lid of the yogurt, pour the crunchies into the yogurt and stir. That's it. Simple. Easy. DELICIOUS! And healthy.

And only 100 calories per yummy serving!

When my sample pack came in, it was delivered to my workplace because during the week no one would be at home to receive the package and I didn't want it sitting outside until I could get home. Yeah, that was good thinking on my part, huh? Except that I didn't count on my co-workers drooling when I opened the package to see what was inside.

Breyers sent me a sample 4-pack, and of course I wanted to try it right away. I practically had to get out my whip and chair to keep everyone else away from my Breyers YoCrunch!

I mean, I'd agreed to do this review, after all, so it only makes sense that I had to actually EAT the product in order to do this review and tell you all how truly scrumptious Breyers YoCrunch really is. Honestly, you'd have thought I was the most selfish person on earth, because even if I ate one container, there were still three left and I should share with my friends, right? Yeah, right. Three single-serving containers amongst seven hungry women.

I'm not about to play favorites at work. Uh-uh. Not me. No way.

This Breyers YoCrunch is all MINE!

Ahem. But I was happy to demonstrate how the crunchies are packed separate from the yogurt and how you add them in and stir to keep them fresh and crispy. And the taste! Oh my. That wonderful Breyers yogurt taste is still there, still loaded with fruit flavor (mine was strawberry, my favorite!) and now with the added kick of granola.

Talk about a healthy snack! You honestly can't tell it's only 100 calories per serving. It tastes nothing like what you'd think a 100-calorie snack would taste like.

I was very impressed. And will be picking up some of these next time I'm grocery shopping. If the grown women in my office were salivating, listening to the mmm's and ohhh's and ahhh's I made as I indulged, imagine how your kids are gonna love 'em. Or even your husband. Want to give everybody healthier snack options? Breyers YoCrunch is an excellent choice!

Here's some info the company sent me about Breyers YoCrunch:

YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs are the first yogurt products to be naturally sweetened with Truvia™  rebiana. Truvia™ rebiana is the key ingredient in Truvia™ natural sweetener, the first great tasting, natural, zero calorie sweetener born from the leaves of the stevia plant.

YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs are the only calorie-controlled yogurt products that are naturally sweetened, providing all the taste of full-calorie low-fat yogurt but without all the calories and sugar.
YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs offer a satisfying smooth and crunchy yogurt experience in convenient 100-calorie portions that kids and moms will love. (note: and dads too, I'll bet!)

Available in five great flavors, YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs are made with nonfat yogurt and are perfect as a healthy snack or dessert for those craving a nutritious yet decadent sweet treat.
  • Cheesecake Yogurt with Graham Cookie Pieces
  • Strawberry Yogurt with 100% Natural Low Fat Granola
  • Vanilla Yogurt with Chocolate Chip Cookie Pieces
  • Vanilla Yogurt with Chocolate Crème Cookie Pieces
  • Vanilla Yogurt with Nestle® Buncha Crunch™ Candy Pieces

YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs are available at leading grocery, health food and specialty stores nationwide at a suggested retail price of $2.99 - $3.19 for each four-pack container.

    I'm sold! The strawberries and granola were awesome, but now I'm tempted to try the other varieties as well. And you gotta love the price, too. Cheaper (and better for you) than a candy bar!
