Ben & Jerry’s Greek Fro-yo Review

Fro-yo girl here. Ben & Jerry’s had frozen yogurt before they introduced their new Greek Frozen Yogurt line, but the difference is that the Greek line has a stronger yogurt taste. The earlier frozen yogurt flavors were basically lower fat versions of their ice cream flavors like Cherry Garcia. 

The new Greek Frozen Yogurt line comes in four flavors, pint size: Peanut butter banana, Strawberry shortcake, Raspberry fudge chunk, Blueberry vanilla graham. RFC and PBB also come in tiny single serving sizes (cute). I found the line at Safeway where a pint was $3.49 (introductory price) and $4.49 regular price.

* BLUEBERRY VANILLA GRAHAM: Blueberry and vanilla yogurt swirls with graham crackers. The graham cracker pieces are very sweet and soft. I liked the flavor of the vanilla frozen yogurt (creamy, not too sweet, yogurty taste) and blueberry frozen yogurt (lightly tangy). The hint of honey was also nice. The texture was like ice cream, creamy and easily scooped. 4 out of 5 stars.

* RASPBERRY FUDGE CHUNK: Raspberry Greek frozen yogurt with fudge chunks. The fudge chunk flavor dominates the light raspberry flavor, although you can taste the raspberry. I liked the texture - not too dense, creamy, easily scooped. It has a mild tanginess that I found pleasant. The fudge chips were like crunchy chocolate chips. The aftertaste was slightly bitter. I would prefer a stronger raspberry flavor and a milder chocolate flavor. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
