Review & coupon giveaway: Voskos yogurt

Voskos yogurt

PastaQueen reviews Voskos yogurt.


Disclaimer: Voskos sent me several coupons redeemable for their yogurt to write this review.

I didn’t start a blog with the intention of soliciting emails from all the major yogurt manufacturers in America, but I’m pretty darn close to achieving that goal. (Am I on some secret yogurt mailing list?) I’ve tasted Fage and StonyBrook Farm and Yoplait offered to send me samples too, but I turned them down because I’m not into the high fructose corn syrup they use. This month Voskos sent me some coupons, so the only major brand I think I’m missing at this point is Dannon, which is ironic because that’s the brand I buy most often.

Anyway! Since I reviewed the other yogurts, I thought it was only fair to give Voskos a go. I sampled several flavors of their Greek yogurt including the plain non-fat, plain original, honey vanilla bean, and blueberry.

Voskos yogurt

As I expected, the plain flavors were too tart for my sweet tooth. However, if I mixed in some sweetener they were more palatable. The blueberry and honey vanilla bean were pretty good, but again, there was that tart flavor mixed in that I’m personally not a huge fan of, but I bet some of you would enjoy. The flavors are pre-mixed into the yogurt, so you don’t have to spend time stirring them up. This also assures that the flavor is evenly distributed throughout the yogurt. According to their web site, they offer several other flavors of Greek Yogurt including exotic fig, wild strawberry, and greek honey. I didn’t see any of those in the Whole Foods store near me where Voskos is sold, though the fig flavor sounds interesting.

You can find a store that sells Voskos here or just hit your local Whole Foods if you have one. If you are interested, you can also try your luck winning one of 10 coupons Voskos sent me for a free cup of their yogurt. To enter, leave a comment below naming a new yogurt flavor you would like to try. Feel free to be creative! You have until 11:59pm on November 2 to enter. I will draw ten winners randomly.

Don’t forget, you can still enter the Pepperidge Farm $100 Visa card giveaway too if you haven’t already, which is also open until November 2. Good luck!

Chobani Greek Yogurt has pineapple and pomegranate flavors I’d like to try, but Fresh Market doesn’t carry those.

I really like the tartness (and thickness) Greek Yogurt provides.

Thanks for the chance to try a new Greek Yogurt!

I’d like to try coconut lime greek yogurt. The tart and tangy balanced out with the sweetness of coconut would be awesome!

I’d also like to try the exotic fig, it stinks that nowhere here in Indianapolis carries it though!

I love the creaminess of greek-style yogurts, but I can’t stand the sourness. I have to mix in unholy amounts of honey and granola. However, it does make an excellent addition to baked goods.

I have not tried Greek yogurt yet although some of the flavors sound yummy. I will have to add it to my shopping list.

In the spirit of the upcoming holiday, I’d love to try some pecan pie flavored yogurt – heavy on the pecan pie, please.

I’m pretty sure Dannon uses high fructose corn syrup too. I know they do in their light yogurt. Breyer’s does not. I’m with you on that – none for me, thanks.

Inventing a flavor – I’d like to try orange cranberry. I love Greek yogurts…have never heard of this brand!

@Leslie – I just checked the ingredients again and Dannon Light N Fit does NOT use high fructose corn syrup. The only thing resembling it on the label is fructose, which is different.

Have you ever tried making your own yogurt? I understand it’s not that difficult but have never done it.

theskinnyplate • October 30, 2009 at 7:10 pm

I think Pineapple is an awesome flavor, but Chobani already makes that and it is really good.

A new flavor can me some sort of coffee flavor Greek yogurt. What a nice flavor to enjoy for breakfast.

MelPo • October 30, 2009 at 7:27 pm

Did you know you can make any yogurt thick–like the so-called greek yogurts that are so popular now? It’s just strained yogurt.

I do it by putting a couple of coffee filters in a colander over a bowl–dump the contents of a big yogurt (my fave is seven stars, but any kind, any flavor will work) into the filters. Then fold the tops of the filters over the top of the yogurt and put the whole bowl into the fridge overnight. The next day, take it out and dump the watery stuff from the bowl and open up the coffee filters and enjoy your thick yummy yogurt.

If you want it even thicker you can weight the top with something fairly light–like a can of soup or something and the resulting yogurt will be a cream-cheese consistency. It makes a delicious pie.

I love, love, love buffalo milk yogurt. I don’t think Whole Foods carries it (mine doesn’t), but my local health food store does. It is by far the best-tasting yogurt I have ever eaten. I know it sounds weird, but it is delicious!

I think Mango with Fine Orange Zest would be delightful!

Hmm. how does cranberry orange yogurt sound? it could be interesting.

i do enjoy the the greek yogurts. I particularly enjoy using them to make dips… stir i a litle dill and you have some yummy snacking.

Has their been pumpkin yogurt? I don’t recall seeing it, but I bet that would be good!

I am surprised you have a problem with high fructose corn syrup, but not artificial sweeteners.

I will drive out of my way to Whole Foods, so I can get all the yogurt options that are all natural.

Considering the season, Pumpkin Pie yogurt would sound like a pretty nice option about now… lol

Have you ever tried to make crock pot yogurt? I’m in the middle of my first batch now, and the instructions couldn’t be simpler. Plenty of recipes on the technique to be had via Google. I hear that if you strain it through a couple of coffee filters, you get the texture of Greek yogurt.

I bet you could add some pumpkin puree and a tad of pumpkin pie spice to vanilla and make a yummy pumpkin pie flavor! I’m going to try that as soon as my pumpkin is finished cooking!

Some excellent suggestions here. So for a new one (I think), how about apple/cranberry? You could mix in crunchy granola to imitate a dessert.

I checked it out…there is ONE store nearby that carries it this brand.
