Chobani Champions Greek Yogurt Review & Giveaway US


Chobani Champions Greek Yogurt is the FIRST Greek Yogurt made just for kids! Chobani Champions was first thought of at the Great Children's Read, an annual kids event in New York City. During the Great Children's Read event, a CHO team member, Buddy Dean, was referring to the kids who stopped by their booth as "Champs". Buddy Dean would say, "Here you go Champ" and "Try some Chobani. You're going to love it!". As the day progressed they could tell that the kids loved the Chobani's yogurt, which is when they decided they needed to make some just for kids! 

Chobani Champions is the beloved offspring of Chobani Greek Yogurt. Since then the Chobani team worked tirelessly on Chobani Champions until it was perfect. Why, you may ask? Because the Chobani team wouldn't dare serve it to our kids, if it was not good enough for their own kids! 

Chobani Champions take raw milk from local farmers and seperate it into skim and cream. Then they pasteurize the milk and add yogurt cultures. They then wait for the milk to convert into yogurt before straining out the whey to make it "Greek" yogurt. Next, they add the fruit! (YUM, best part!) After all of that they package the product and let it cool. Finally, they test the yogurt for quality standards before shipping it to stores.

Now, you may be wondering, "Is this Greek yogurt organic?". The answer is no. Why? Because the Chobani Champions team wants to keep their Greek yogurt at a reasonable price so everyone can enjoy it's delicious taste. If they were to produce it organic, they would have to raise the price, making it available to fewer people. I absolutely love this little fact from Chobani Champions! They have the absolutely correct idea in mind! 
We received sixteen 3.5oz cups of Chobani Champions, 8 Orange Vanilla, 4 Honey-Nana and 4 Wild Berry. Cade and Ezio absolutely loved the Honey-Nana and ate those with in the first day of receiving our package. Jedilynn greatly enjoyed the Orange Vanilla. I was a bit worried that the texture of the Greek yogurt would be too "different" for her as she is used to different brands of non Greek yogurt, but she loved them and I was thrilled! I had to taste test the yogurt before giving it to my kids... right...? Well, I sort of hogged the VerryBerry for myself. 

Cade washed his "brother baby" up for me! They are such sweethearts.

Chobani Champions is so delectable! It is so thick and creamy!! I personally do NOT like whipped yogurt. I was also a bit hesitant to try Greek yogurt, but I loved it and I'm glad I got to try it. Before trying Chobani Champions I had only eaten Yoplait Original. Yoplait Original does NOT compare! Chobani Champions is so creamy and thick, not watery like the other regular yogurts. The VerryBerry Greek yogurt was like eating a mixed berry smoothie, which are my absolute favorite. Which brings me to want to make a smoothie, I will be using Chobani plain Greek yogurt (which I will be purchasing) and will post the recipe.

Disclosure: I received a package of Chobani Champions in exchange for my review. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions are my own.


  1. After reading all the information on this, I am going to have to purchase some of these for my little girl, because she loves yogurt, but I don'[t want to keep buying her the completely sugar ladden ones.

  2. I think my son would really enjoy these, He doesn't like to drink a lot of milk so these having lots of Calcium is a plus! I think the Honey Nana sounds yummy!! :)

  3. Greek Yogurt is the best. I especially like the added fruit. I looks like the kids have fun eating it also.

  4. I love Greek yogurt. It tastes so good especially with fruit and my niece and nephew who love eating these as well. Its healthy and has lots of calcium.
