Yasso Review and Giveaway

I can assume (you are reading this after all) that you are a fellow lover of yogurt. I love yogurt, Greek yogurt, and frozen yogurt but what about frozen Greek yogurt? Sounds delicious, right? If you said no, you're wrong. So let's talk about Yasso. Yasso is a company that created the first ever (yep, first!) frozen Greek yogurt bar. Their bars are made with completely all natural ingredients and rBST free milk. They also boast a mere 80 calories, 6 grams of protein, AND contain no artificial sweeteners. Sounds to good to be true, huh? Nope. They are real and absolutely delicious! 


When Yasso offered to let me try their products, I had to say yes and I don't regret it one bit. Delicious doesn't even begin to describe them, but it is a good start. Each bar is rich, thick, and creamy just like Greek yogurt. When you first bite into a bar, it has the consistency of ice cream, but as it melts in your mouth, the yogurt texture begins to shine. Yasso bars really are a whole new take on frozen novelties. 


Yasso currently offers six flavors: raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, vanilla bean, mango, and coconut. Out of these six flavors, my family and I got to try three which were: strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry. I guess we really like berries around here. The biggest hit in my house was the strawberry. It was the first one we tried and the first one to be gone. It was sweet but not overly sweet. The taste wasn't that horrible, artificial strawberry that a lot of companies try to pass off. It tasted like real strawberries; that were covered in rich Greek yogurt, of course.

Our next favorite was raspberry. It was sweet but a little tangy, just like a real raspberry. These were gone equally as fast as the strawberry bars and enjoyed all the same. Blueberry, was awesome as well. The yogurt shined through a little more in these bars but the blueberry flavor was still definitely there. Just like the previous two, these seemed to vanish right as I turned around. Not a single drop of these bars went to waste in my house. They were loved, eaten, and now missed by all.

One thing that I really love about these bars, besides the taste of course, is that I can give them to my children and not feel bad. I know I am giving them something healthy, natural, AND delicious. Not only can I feel good about giving a Yasso bar to my children but they really enjoy them as well. Look at that face! She loved them. I also think she ate more than anyone else in the house. It's her smile. She can con anyone out of food.

If you want to try a new kind of frozen novelty but also want it to be nice to your body and waistline, definitely give Yasso a try. Also, be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. After doing so, hurry back because Yasso has provided me with 3 vouchers to giveaway to one lucky reader so you can try their awesome bars as well!
