friday's food flop: yasso frozen greek yogurt bars


 *disclaimer* this post is not sponsored or endorsed by the featured product or company in any way. all products were purchased on my own free will and are a reflection of my unique thoughts.





when i first saw these bars in the freezer section, i got really excited.

1) i love greek yogurt
2) i love frozen desserts
3) the box promised only 70 calories and 6 grams of protein - win win, right?

so of course, i bought them. immediately after leaving the grocery store (literally, we had just walked out of the sliding doors), i tore open the box, grabbed a bar, ripped off the packaging and bit in.




there's no other way to say it, but i bit into disappointment :( these bars didn't taste anything like i had dreamed! they taste the way watered down blueberry yogurt would taste if it was frozen. just like that.  nothing like frozen yogurt (though i wasn't expecting a soft serve type taste). nothing like normal blueberry yogurt. just watered down yogurt frozen to a stick.




maybe it was the blueberry flavor that fell short? i don't know, but its not worth buying another box to find out. i threw the rest of the bars away. 

bottom line:
the good news? 1 bar is only 2 points. the bad news? one bar is not worth the 2 points. sorry yasso, but these bars don't make the cut for me.
