The secret is out: Ben & Jerry’s Greek frozen yogurt has come to Denver. The Albertson’s near Andy only had one flavor, banana peanut butter.
This probably wasn’t the best flavor for test-driving, but it is what it is. The verdict: not bad, but not ground-breaking. If you love Greek yogurt like I do, you are also probably aware of its benefits such as high protein, low fat options, calcium, and natural probiotics. When looking at the label, I wasn’t seeing any of these benefits. I suppose the protein content is a tad higher than your average ice cream (2g) but, this product is high in calories (maybe 20 below other B and J ice cream) and the fat content isn’t far behind your favorite ice cream either. Let’s be honest – who was really expecting this product to be a tasty health revolution? That said, you can reach for this and feel a little less guilt (assuming you feel any at all) or just go for the real thing and know the difference is marginal.
