Yogurt fail

How was your Monday? Mine was good, especially because I didn't end up hitting a huge row of backed up cars on the freeway on my way to work this morning. Thankfully, I was following far enough behind to begin with, but I still had to break really hard and turned to the right so I wouldn't run into the cars if my breaks didn't do their job properly. Whoa, it was a scary start to my day!


I had a yummy bowl of hot oats (Trader Joe's maple instant oatmeal) with chia seeds and sunflower seed butter. I love the sunflower seed butter in hot oats--delish!


Lunch was a bit of a bummer.

I had leftover spoon hamburger on a bun with provolone cheese, a bit of leftover taco salad, some pb cookies and my other source of protein--chobani raspberry yogurt, was gross. I didn't end up eating the vita top yet and will have it as a snack or for dessert tomorrow.


The Chobani yogurt was super sour and the first thing I noticed when I opened the package was that the consistency/texture was off than the normal texture in Chobani yogurt. I think I just got a bad batch of it. There wasn't any mold in the container, so it's a mystery to me as to why it was way off in flavor.


It was so disgusting tasting that I could not eat it and I e-mailed and twitter messaged Chobani right away. When paying over $1.00 each for yogurt, I figure I better give feedback and see what can be done about it. I knew I had more of this flavor that I purchased at Woodman's in my fridge, so those will probably have to be thrown out too. :(


Oh well, won't stop me from buying my beloved Chobani! :)

Craig made us dinner using some ingredients from the garden--cherry tomatoes & hot peppers and he heated up some rice. It was a burrito bowl of sorts without the beans or meat. I added some pepper jack cheese, Northwoods Penzey's seasoning, and Frank's Red Hot sauce to my bowl.


My tummy is still full from this simple but tasty meal, so I need just a bit more resting on the couch and then it's time to hit the gym for some cardio. My body is pretty sore all over from lifting weights yesterday, so I decided I would do strictly cardio and maybe some abs tonight.

  1. Hi Lisa,

    I just wanted to let you know how sorry we are that you had a yogurt fail!

    Chobani is made with all natural goodness, and without preservatives, which unfortunately makes it vulnerable to temperature abuse somewhere along the way from our hands to yours. That being said, we take full responsibility for any ounce of our product that is subpar.

    We would love to send you some replacement coupons. Please email us at care[at] and allow us to do so.

    Thanks for your feedback. We sincerely appreciate your honesty and support.

    My Best,
