Yoplait Plenti

I'm always looking for something different to try, as I tend to eat a lot of the same foods.  What can I say?  I'm lazy.

I found this yogurt, Yoplait Plenti,  in the store last week. It appears to be a new product.  It's Greek yogurt with whole grain oats, flax seeds, and pumpkin seeds mixed in.  I really like to add crunchy stuff to my yogurt, so this looked like it might be good.  It has 12g of protein, which is a good thing; 12g of sugar, which isn't bad compared to other yogurts; 140 calories, which is more than I usually spend on yogurt, but all the goodies were already mixed in; and was on sale for $1.47 (that's a lot for yogurt!), so I figured I'd give it a try.

It was OK. Nothing to write home about.  Even though Yoplait has removed the aspartame from its yogurts and the label says it has real sugar, this tasted fake.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe I'm just used to artificial sweeteners now. I don't know.  The oats were chewy, kind of like overnight oats; I don't like the texture of overnight oats. The seeds had a tiny bit of crunch, but really more of a firm chew.

I wouldn't buy this again.  It definitely didn't fill me up the same way yogurt mixed with peanuts does (my usual breakfast). Sure, it's less calories than mixing in peanuts, but there just isn't enough substance there for me. I didn't care for the fake taste, either.  And there's no way I'd more than $1.00 for Greek yogurt.  I'll stick with the Dannon Light & Fit Greek yogurt and mix in some dry roasted peanuts.


  1. I just tried Yoplait Plenti and I agree with you, except that I found very little OK about it. Whatever was mixed into it was totally soggy. And it tastes artificially sweetened. It's really bad.

    Final verdict: Terrible.

    1. OK, so it wasn't just that I bought it and didn't eat it right away; I wasn't 100% sure about the sogginess factor. I liked that everything was mixed in, but it needs to stay crunchy and I need more of it!
