Oikos Chocolate Pleasure

Chocolate Pleasure? Really?

Sometimes you just need chocolate. This yogurt has it all – high protein, no fat, organic purity but creamy, delicious and decadent. Your chocolate fix has never been so good for you. Stinygiasou (to your health) – Gary

So I had heard about this stuff but not seen it in my grocery store.  People wondered if it would be a good snack.  Given the amount of sugars, I’m guessing they hadn’t really seen it, either.  But we’ll get to that down the road.  When it hit my grocery store, I decided to pick up a 4-pack because I’m looking for alternatives to Cadburry eggs, despite the fact this might be higher in sugar than I really want to have for a *health food* but it could be worse.

And then tonight, I read a negative review on it and so I had to try it.  I mean, that’s just ample opportunity in my mind.


The chocolate is on the bottom so you have to stir it.  On the top is pretty standard Greek yogurt.  The bottom looks like thick pudding.

First taste is kinda what I expected — chocolatey-flavored sour cream.  Not terribly wonderful in of itself.  But having had tons of Greek yogurt in the past, I know what to do.

Why yes, I AM a Splenda whore..

All I needed to add was one Splenda to make this taste good.  And yeah, it tastes pretty good.

But let’s look at stats:

It’s a little high in sugars for just 4oz — and if you are an easy dumper, this might just be all it takes with the combo of lactose and actual SUGAR.

But if you don’t dump and you’re looking for a chocolate fix and it’s between this and a snickers — THIS at least has protein, fewer calories, and no fat.  So if you’re going to be bad, this is a better choice.

Keep in mind that for a mature pouch?  4oz is a drop in the bucket.  So I’m off to find something more filling.

Available at grocery stores.  I think I paid $4.39 plus tax for 4 4oz servings.

    Dump city for me. Blech.

    Yeah. What a combo of lactose and sucrose. That would do a lot of people in.

    My husband LOVES the caramel one — but did not like the chocolate. Are you going to review the caramel also?

    Cadbury creme eggs have been on sale for cheap at Walgreen’s. Eep! I’ve eaten more Easter candy in the past week or so than I care to admit.

  4. Andrea says:

    I can take or leave caramel. So I really haven’t decided right now. These really aren’t a great choice for us so I’m not certain I will. Better than candy, but not very good regardless.

    And I hear you on the Easter candy. The only thing I can say is that I’ve avoided sour jelly beans for the first time in many, many, MANY years.

    This year was my first year HAVING sour jelly beans. My husband is a candy-addict and literally goes through a few bags every week.

    I can thank him for introducing me to sour jelly beans last week. 10 calories and 2 grams of sugar per bean. But given the amounts I ate…eep!

    Right now I have the house to myself and I made him hide his candy stash. It feels good to be back to clean eating.

    I think there are way better ways to get a chocolate fix than this. You can get the FAGE 0% and add SF Chocolate Torini / DaVinci syrup, for starters.
