Yoplait Greek Frozen Yogurt Bars with Granola

[New for 2014] Now Wells sent over this next sample for free, but to be honest, I would be hard pressed to walk by this one without trying it. It reminds me too much of the old Blue Bunny Aspen froyo bars from a half decade ago. Keep in mind there is also a blueberry variety, but blueberry flavors rarely work for me.

Always label the wrapper!

Whoa! Now that's what I call truth in advertising! 
It's almost identical to the package in looks and size! Too funny!

I'm not sure of smell, so I take my first bite: hmmm. Interesting flavor profile....

Whoa! Apparently I looked at the box too quickly because it's not a thick shell! It's actually a really thin shell. Bummer. I like the granola though. It's solid but not crunchy which is the way I like my granola. I definitely prefer granola to those silly super dry cocoa nib bits in the new magnum bars.

Yeah, it's fun, I like it. I don't fully understand it, but I like it. I expected a thick shell with raspberry filling but instead we have this plain white froyo tarting things up a bit. I think more strawberry flavor would have made it feel like more of a treat.... but I still like the diversity here. I mean, what else would be even close to this that's available right now? Nothing.

Ok, I'm pretty excited about the second scooping. I think I might let it sit out for a few minutes as the texture was a bit more solid than I would have liked.

On Second Scoop: Bar #2 has been consumed. While this really isn't my kind of treat, I definitely see a fair number of people being really happy with this one. It's got just enough tart pop when you eat it to perk you up and I can't help but think people will dig that. For me personally, if the texture was a bit smoother, and the filling was 100% strawberry, or if the shell had been thicker, I'm pretty sure I would have bought another box.

Verdict?  unique
Buy Again?  nah

I bought the strawberry ones and I loved them, now my grocery store quit carrying them. Bummer They are so much better for you than a lot of the desert treats out there and taste good what's not to love
