~ Disclosure: Dannon® Light & Fit® is a client of Influence Central.
Last Monday, Influence Central along with some of our ah-mazing bloggers attended a launch event for the New Dannon® Light & Fit® Greek Tiramisu Flavored Yogurt! Despite the less-than-amazing weather here in New England that day, we made a trip to Stop & Shop in Stoneham, MA where Tiramisu was making its big début.
The new flavor, brainchild of a Boston-area preschool teacher in Dannon’s Great Greek Flavor Search, was all the rage on June 15th when we entered the Stoneham Stop & Shop. Each visitor was greeted at the door with an opportunity to sample Dannon’s latest Greek yogurt creation. As part of a lucky group, we got to go behind the scenes and get a bit more insight into some nutritious and healthier options as summer comes upon us.
Dannon and Stop & Shop really went all out, with a private room just for us visitors to grab some breakfast and get to know one another before a Stop & Shop Nutritionist, Julie, led tour throughout the store! Julie brought us around to sections of the store where Stop & Shop is helping its patrons make more health-conscious decisions, and even shared some ways we can keep healthy eating habits for our families and ourselves at home.
Did you know that an old mint container could be used to portion out the perfect serving of almonds for a snack? Or that avocados make an incredible substitute for mayonnaise? It’s true, we’ve tried it! In fact, subbing avocados is my favorite way to eliminate mayo form my diet. Mix it with a little plain Greek yogurt and some tuna and BAM!, lunch is ready.
We ended our tour in the dairy section with the Dannon Brand nutritionist, Amanda, who introduced us to the New Dannon Light & Fit Greek Tiramisu Flavored Yogurt! With 12 grams of protein, 80 calories and 0% fat per serving, this yogurt makes for a great on-the-go breakfast, midday treat, or even late night snack for those of us with a serious sweet-tooth, which everyone who knows me knows I have.
After our adventure through the dairy section, we had the pleasure of heading back to our own personal VIP room to try out the new flavor and, let me tell you, the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Tiramisu Flavored Yogurt did not disappoint. It was like the perfect piece of tiramisu bumped into your favorite Greek yogurt and the outcome was utterly delicious. While the tanginess of the treat hinted at the Greek yogurt we all know and love, the smooth and creamy texture packed with REAL tiramisu flavor provided the perfect amount of sweet. One bite and I was hooked. Before I knew it, my cup was empty! I wasn’t worried, though, because we all got these awesome gift bags that came complete with some extra sample packs!
Interested in tasting the satisfying snack for yourself? Dannon Light & Fit Greek Tiramisu Flavored Yogurt is now in a Stop & Shop or Giant store near you! But hurry, because this sweet flavor is a limited edition product, so grab some packs while you can, and see why Tiramisu is a Boston favorite!
