Wait, first, let me use my mastery of the obvious to state that 2012 will be the year of greek frozen yogurt. I mean, come on, greek yogurt is steadily gaining market share, in part due to the protein content, so there's no reason greek frozen yogurt won't take the same trend now that Ciao Bella is jumping in the ring. Heck, even Hannaford's has a housebrand of greek froyo (review will be up later this week).
Ok, I'm all over the place here, so let's introduce Oikos. Stonyfield is pretty proud of Oikos as it is the only "nationally available" organic greek yogurt. Now Stonyfield doesn't mess around a ton with ice cream and froyo, but you can find them in some stores. Seeing a chance to get ahead of everyone else, frozen Oikos came out at the end of the 2011 summer.
Starting off with a plastic seal? Nice.
Wow, when they say honey swirl, they mean it.
It's literal puddles of gooey honey. Are you worried it might be too much honey?
Well, you would be right. I can tolerate alot of honey for the sake of this blog, but this one is too much. Even if you avoid the swirl, the honey flavor is ingrained in every molecule of this stuff. I can't even pretend to like it. I'm trying to focus on the texture so that at least I can judge that, but all I get is HONEY HONEY HONEY...
and then there's the HONEY when HONEY and HONEY while HONEY I HONEY the HONEY HONEY tried HONEY stop HONEY HONEY HONEY please HONEY HONEY save HONEY taste HONEY HONEY HONEY HONEY HONEY HONEY buds HONEY HONEY.

Ok, enough painful reminiscing. I have no doubt that this is a quality product and I plan on trying one of their other flavors: chocolate, blueberry, or vanilla. Sure this one is a five dollar loss, but I'm not giving up yet.
Verdict? too... much.... honey
Buy Again? OIKOS: yes, this flavor: no
The Final Scoop: I couldn't pawn this one off on my daughter or wife, so in the trash it went.
