What I Love: Kroger Carbmaster Yogurt

Sorry, sorry. This week really got away from me. I am starting to freak out about wedding stuff and how much I have left to do in so little time. I will save that for a later post, as I’m pushing it to the back of my mind – which is also how I got into my current situation… Back on track!

What I love:
Kroger Carbmaster Yogurt

This stuff is insane. I hope you all live near a Kroger, because I truly feel this love is brand specific. I’ve tried Light & Fit, Yoplait, Stonyfield Farm – all of them. Trust me, this one is the best.

Here’s the thing – I’m not really all about the whole low-carb craze. In fact, I eat a lot of carbs. As a marathon trainee, every night we usually have some variation of carbs in our dinner – brown rice, quinoa, or whole wheat pasta. My initial purchase happened because they were sold out of Kroger Lite (favorite runner-up) so I was forced to stand in the yogurt aisle for an hour analyzing nutrition facts (you’re welcome!). The Carbmaster has the same amount of calories (80) as other lite yogurts, (obviously) less carbs than the other lite yogurts, but it also has more protein and less sugar! Best yogurt ever.

If the stats aren’t enough to convince you, let’s get to the important stuff – taste. Holy moly this stuff is good. My favorite favorite favorite (cannot stress this enough) is just plain old vanilla. Belieeeeve me when I tell you it does not taste like the other vanillas. It’s creamy and thick with an unidentifiably delicious after-taste – very similar to the oh-so-popular Fage Greek yogurt that I do love, but refuse to purchase due to it’s excessive price tag. Carbmaster vanilla is basically my 40 cent version of $3 Fage. Suit yourself, but that’s one substitute I can get behind.

Imagine my excitement at Kroger last week when I got to the yogurt aisle and saw the newly re-designed super sleek looking Carbmaster packaging! And that was before I even realized there are like ten new flavors! Blackberry, Strawberry Pomegranate, Cherry Acai, Strawberry Banana – the list goes on. I have tried them all and they are all delicious. I wouldn’t steer you wrong here. If Carbmaster is sold out (read: if I have just left the Hyde Park Kroger store), the Kroger Lite brand is also delicious and has equally exciting flavor options – French Apple Pie anyone?

I know an entire post about yogurt seems excessive. But a lot of what I do in my day revolves around food. Planning what I eat, tracking what I eat, reading food blogs, and finding new things to eat. A lot of these “foodie” types are always plugging the latest, coolest, most organic-straight-from-the-earth stuff they can find at Whole Foods. Don’t get me wrong – that stuff is usually delicious. But I also have to be realistic about what I spend on food. And I can happily tell you that the cheapest yogurt in the grocery store is conveniently the one that I like best.

My final rant is to share with you my favorite way to eat it:

1 cup canned pumpkin (see oatmeal post #2!)
1 6oz. cup Kroger Carbmaster vanilla
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (cloves, cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg)
1 tbsp Splenda

100% pure pumpkin pie perfection (in 160 calories!). Oh, and if you hurry, they are 3 for $1 with your Kroger plus card this week. Enjoy!

However the learning curve is very steep, this isn’t “Call of Duty” or “Halo”, and typically
you don’t run into those types of players on “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive”.
Valve released a significant update to Counter Strike: Global Offensive for
the PC on Monday that not only squashes bugs but also adds two new maps.
She enjoys writing about online game play and the high speed Internet
connection they require like Time Warner Bundles.
