Recently, I had the opportunity to review Fage Total Split Cups Greek Yogurt as part of a Bzz Campaign on BzzAgent. I received two free 5.3oz Fage (pronounced “Fa-yeh”) Total Split Cup yogurt coupons and three more to share with friends.
I chose one of their more unconventional flavors, 0% Blueberry Acai as well as a classic, 2% Honey. I wanted to try one of their new flavors, such as Orange Cinnamon or Passion Fruit Clementine, but I could not find anywhere near me who carried those flavors.
History of Fage:
Since 1926, Fage has been making delicious yogurt from a simple family recipe of milk, live active cultures and cream — no sweeteners, thickeners or powders here. This approach, along with the rich and creamy results it yields, has made Fage the #1 brand of yogurt in Greece.
FAGE Total Split Cups continue the tradition, pairing the classic Fage family Greek yogurt recipe with natural and flavorful fruit toppings for a perfectly portable snack that can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere. Rich in protein and low in calories and fat, Fage Total Split Cups are a delicious alternative to other sweet snacks like pastries, ice cream or pudding.
Fage Total Split Cups Review:
I have already learned, if you are going to get Greek Yogurt, go with Fage. It’s been hammered into our heads that Greek yogurt is good for us, but more often than not, the varieties of Greek yogurt at the grocery store are sour, stinky, and just plain gross.
Most people agree that Fage is the best-tasting Greek yogurt out there, and I too would rather have FAGE than any other brand. It can be a bit pricier than the other brands, though, so I guess it’s just one of those decisions you have to make—cost, or taste?
Fage Blueberry Acai
The FAGE 0% Blueberry Acai is a Gluten-Free, Fat Free, 120 calorie Greek yogurt with a blueberry-acai filling that you mix in. The filling reminds me of pie filling. I was actually very pleasantly surprised with the flavor.
First of all, the FAGE brand Greek yogurt is amazing–it’s not watery or pungent, it’s thick and creamy and as far from sour as you can get with Greek yogurt. The filling is very sweet and mixes in nicely for an overall lovely flavor. It’s a healthy, filling snack.
Fage 2% Honey:
Normally, I like the 0% Honey, but it was not available in my local grocery store, so I decided to try the 2%. This flavor is gluten-free but has 190 calories and 2.5 grams of fat. It also packs a whopping 12 grams of protein.
Because of its FAGE Total Split Cups caloric content, I would not eat this often as a snack, but throw in some granola, and it would make the perfect breakfast on-the-go! I absolutely love the flavor of this one, and based on this test It remains my favorite FAGE flavor. The honey is so incredible. I found myself digging my finger into the bottom of the divided container to get the last drop!
I would like it if the toppings cup was a little bit larger. Used two different spoons in my experiment, and neither was small enough to totally accommodate the size of the container. Don’t mind using my fingers, but I’d rather not have to. I’d also like to see more variety of flavors in my local grocery stores. I must admit, I feel a little pretentious every time I say “Fa-yeh”. But overall, I love it and will continue to buy it.
Before this test, I would buy FAGE only if it was on sale, even though I preferred it over other brands. However, I would still buy whichever one was the cheapest that week. After this test, though, I feel like I’m just going to have to splurge. Because it really is that much better than the other Greek yogurt brands.
