Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt, flavor review

Ben & Jerry's Greek Frozen Yogurt

We can rely on Ben & Jerry’s for delicious and fun frozen desserts. Greek Frozen yogurt is no exception and as the package states, it’s “really Greekin good”. Recently, I found two of the four Greek frozen yogurt flavors: Blueberry Vanilla Graham and Raspberry Fudge chunk.

Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen yogurt is easy to scoop, has a light texture (not too dense), is smooth and is not too cold when consumed. My family enjoyed both flavors, but preferred the Raspberry Fudge chunk. Chocolate always wins with my girls.  The raspberry has a nice natural flavor and tartness, it reminds me some of a sherbet flavor. Blueberry Vanilla Graham has a nice malty/buttery flavor from the graham pieces. In fact, the sweet buttery graham crust flavor tends to drown out the blueberry and vanilla flavor. There is a nice tartness in both and I find it very refreshing. I am impressed with Ben & Jerry’s Greek frozen yogurt and look forward to trying the other flavors.

Greek Frozen yogurt from Ben & Jerry’s is not the healthiest option on the market; it’s a treat. Blueberry Adonia Greek frozen yogurt is a healthier alternative, but it is terrible. There is way too much cooked milk protein taste in Adonia Greek frozen yogurt. It tastes like infant formula smells. The taste might be ok for a body building shake, but not for an after dinner treat.  The texture of Adonia is decent: dense, easy to scoop and melts easy, but the protein off note was horrific. I will opt for more calories and stick with Ben & Jerry’s.

    Susie, I am working my way through a 1.5 gallon carton of Safeway brand Greek honey flavored frozen yogurt…at $3.99 it is a bargain compared to B&J and I must say it is DELICIOUS…a bit more sweet than tart and very strongly honey flavored…but in a good way. Only 150 cals per serving, 3.5 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein. Now that I see you give high praise to the B&J I will buy some and compare it with the Safeway brand. I will be more likely to avoid the “light” ice creams on the market now and stick with Greek FroYo!

      Karina: Thank you for the good word about Safeway Greek frozen yogurt, I’ll give it a try!

        Let me know if you think it compares favorably! I’m pretty picky about my treats – I don’t waste calories on anything that’s not really good.

      Hi Karina: I finally made it by Safeway. Yes, the strawberry Open Nature (Lucerne) Greek Frozen Yogurt is delicious and a great deal. The strawberry flavor is wonderfully tart, fresh strawberry with great buttery undertones. Per 1/2 cup serving: Cal 140, cal fr. fat 35, cholesterol 7% DV, Protein 6 gm, Calcium 15%. Thank you for sharing your experience.

        Well, by coincidence I am also enjoying the Open Nature strawberry flavor at the moment – it’s superb with a drizzle of chocolate syrup, by the way. I think the honey flavor is still my favorite, between the two. Thankfully I still have chocolate and vanilla to try next! And of course the fun B&J flavors. I think Greek yogurt in all its forms is probably the most valuable addition to the world of packaged foods in the last decade:)
