Sweet snacking with oikos (giveaway!)

September 13th, 2010 · 127 Comments · giveaways, product reviews

I’ve been fighting the sugar monster for the past few months. Well, I’ve always had quite the sweet tooth but it’s been more persistent than ever recently. So when Manisha from Stonyfield reached out to me to try oikos caramel and oikos chocolate (and host a very chocolaty giveaway!), I didn’t hesitate for a second. The truth is I’ve had both already and LOVED them. Here is a reused picture for a little visual. I ate this batch too fast 😉

These come in 4 (4-oz) packs. The caramel (or chocolate) is on the bottom with thick nonfat Greek yogurt on top. When you mix them together, magic happens. Ok, maybe not magic, but a crazy delicious sweet and tangy treat. :)

I love love love both flavors. If you forced me to choose between the two, I’d go with chocolate. No surprise here, right? 😆 These are not enough to satisfy my (crazy strong) cravings for sweet treats. I need a real baked good of sorts or at least a nice chunk of dark chocolate for that, but they do make for incredibly indulgent tasting snacks. I also discovered that the chocolate oikos over banana chia pudding with raw cocoa nibs and dried cherries makes one crazy amazing breakfast.

[The banana chia pudding was inspired by Gena – mix 2T chia seeds with 1/2 almond milk, refrigerate. It will get super gelatinous overnight. Blend with 1 banana and 1t cocoa powder for a chocolate banana breakfast pudding :) ]

[Same breakfast but with raspberries]

The chocolate banana pudding was not bad on its own (definitely healthy tasting) but was definitely elevated to exceptional with the addition of chocolate oikos (I know, not raw or even vegan but I’m not). For the most part, the yogurt cups were topped with granola and maybe some chopped fruit… or just eaten “plain.” LOVE. 😎

I’m totally jealous, I’m not going to lie. Green & Black is one of my very favorite chocolate brands too :)
