In my perfect world, I'd be able to eat whatever I want and control my weight with exercise alone, but the sad truth is that unless I'm prepared to run a marathon every week, I need to make smarter choices about the food that goes into my body. That's one of the things I need to work on this year, so this year I'm ditching the ice cream and eating more yogurt. And with yummy, healthier products like Breyers YoCrunch 100 Calorie Packs and Fruit Parfaits, I can still indulge in an occasional sweet treat without getting sidetracked from my fitness goals. We've purchased quite a few YoCrunch Fruit Parfaits ever since we first reviewed them in September, so I was delighted to receive a second invitation to review the product -- along with their YoCrunch 100 Calorie Packs yogurt products.
Here's some information about Breyers YoCrunch 100 Calorie Packs and Yogurt Parfaits:
· Breyers YoCrunch 100 Calorie Packs: the first calorie-controlled yogurt product to be sweetened without artificial sweeteners. Instead, this yogurt is naturally sweetened with Truvia™ rebiana, a great-tasting, natural, zero calorie sweetener. Now available in five great flavors, you can purchase them at your favorite grocery, mass merchandisers, and specialty stores nationwide today. YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs are approx. $2.99-$3.19
· Breyers YoCrunch Fruit Parfait: the first layered fruit, yogurt and granola parfait to be in local grocery stores. YoCrunch® Fruit Parfait™ is available in three classic fruit flavors -- strawberry, blueberry and peach. Consumers will be able to find this yogurt at leading grocery stores nationwide at a suggested retail price of $2.89 for each four-pack container.
We're already big YoCrunch Fruit Parfait fans, so getting a free pack to try and rave about was like icing on the cake (or granola on the parfait). Having that bit of fruit and granola really elevates the yogurt into a real dessert! And oh my goodness, the YoCrunch 100 Calorie Packs are a huge hit! We've never tried these before, and my kids thought their Vanilla Yogurt with Chocolate Chip Cookie Pieces was the best treat ever. They also have Vanilla Yogurt with Nestle Buncha Crunch candy pieces, Cheesecake Yogurt with Graham Cookie Pieces, and other yummy varieties. With flavors like these, who needs ice cream? And since each cup is just 100 calories, it's a great way to enjoy a luscious dessert without too many calories. In my previous review,
The last time I reviewed the Fruit ParYfaits, I mentioned that we all wished the portions were bigger. I think I've changed my mind -- I think it's good for my kids to get used to smaller portion sizes. These little cups pack quite a lot of sweetness and creaminess for just 100 calories, so let's keep the sizes the way they are!
The Bottom Line
YoCrunch 100 Calorie Packs and Fruit Parfaits make a perfect snack or dessert, and the perfect way to indulge your sweet tooth for a reasonable number of calories!
