When I blurred that shot last week, I didn't have to add much blur to the original. What you see before you is Raspberry Fudge Chunk (which I bought) and Strawberry Shortcake (as reviewed by junk food guy). RFC is Raspberry Greek froyo with Fudge Chunks. SS is strawberry greek froyo with shortbread pieces.
The other two new flavors are Banana Peanut Butter and Blueberry Vanilla Graham. BPB is Banana Greek Froyo with Peanut Buttery Swirls. BVG is Blueberry and Vanilla Greek Froyo with a Graham Cracker Swirl. One of them sounds excellent, the other one has banana in it. These are the only four flavors I found so I'm pretty shocked that one of them is banana flavored. I've never seen banana froyo in the grocery store. Sure they are trying to be different, but... iunno, I guess they wanted to mix the peanut butter swirl with something other than chocolate.
Sweet Eureka! Look, I got the invite last week for the big event today and let's just say I wasn't surprised when I discovered these pints the next day. I mean with a catch phrase like "It's really greekin' good", what else could it have possibly been? Oh, and as an aside, don't forget that on February 12th, I called out that 2012 would be the year of Greek Froyo (and that was before I knew what B&J was up to).
I'm a sucker for Raspberry so that's why I picked it first.
Yes, I was tempted to pick up all three fruity flavors,
but at $5.49 a pint, I wasn't willing to take the risk.
Sorry, the pint was pretty soft so this isn't the best shot. The Stop & Shop employee took way too long stocking these. Oh well. I think it's pretty obvious that this pint is jam packed with chunks.
Now before we get too far, you are probably going to hear how awesome this stuff is and creamy and this and that and all that. Yeah, with one pint behind me, I ain't jumping on that bandwagon just yet. Thing is, I now why you'll see glowing reviews. Heck, this pint even tricked my wife... actually, she probably thought I was a little crazy for not liking it off the bat. See, when I first went in, I was scooping just the base and getting hit with all the yogurt flavor. My wife on the other hand went straight for the chocolate. There are so many chunks in here that if you scoop right, you keep a nice coating of chocolate on your taste buds and the yogurt-ness doesn't take as strong a hold.
No, it's not terrible. You all know I despise tart yogurt, so the fact I took more than a few bites is encouraging. I had two separate tastings before handing this one over to my wife who made short work of what was left. That said, I'm still really shocked that there's any yogurt tartness at all. Yes, it's creamy, I won't argue that either. I just don't really like this. As someone will inevitably say "hey, that means more for me". Yes, more for you, enjoy.
Here's the ingredient list if you are curious. Skim Milk, Greek Yogurt, Sugar, etc etc etc.
Let me say right now that I will never put you guys second when it comes to early releases. If I haven't signed an NDA, then I am blabbing whatever I feel like. I denied you, I denied myself, and it won't happen again.
Oh, one last thing, there is the distinct possibility (sneaking suspicion) that all the old froyo flavors will be discontinued. Scoop shop only Black raspberry is already gone. We'll have to watch and see what happens. (2015 note: I was wrong, there are still 4 regular froyos hanging about)
