Love for the Lemon

by Meghann on March 3, 2011

I’m in love with a new yogurt flavor and it’s name is Lemon.


When I first saw the Chobani lemon flavor pop up in grocery stores a few weeks ago I was a little wary about it. A hint of lemon flavor in my water is acceptable, but in my yogurt? I had my doubts.

However, I’ll try anything once and decided to take my chances. You know, for the blog and all. πŸ˜‰


The lemon yogurt went on top of a bowl of Rice Krispie Puffs, Cinnamon Cheerios, and an un-named granola sample packet from my pantry. Then an orange finished it all (I was going with the citrus theme here πŸ˜‰ )


Wow, the lemon was GOOD. The lemon flavor was there, but not as strong as I was expecting. It complemented the natural tartness of Greek yogurt perfectly and left me wanting to lick my bowl clean.


Goal #1 when I get to Tampa: Stock up on Chobani Lemon Yogurt. πŸ™‚

Have you ever tried a flavor of yogurt (or really anything) that you weren’t sure of at first, but instantly fell in love?

I have a big list of to dos on my list today and on the very top is PACKING!

Only 48 hours to go!

I pretty much hate all yogurt, but I did try some spinach artichoke hummus and I was shocked how much I liked it since I normally hate all things artichoke.

Maybe Chobani will send you the cool lunch box that I’ve seen on other blogs!

Me, too, on the yogurt hating… I’ve tried many times to like it (including Greek), but it just tastes like rotten/spoiled dairy to me.

3 Kristy @ KristyRuns March 3, 2011 at 8:13 am

I am not a big fan of lemon…never been keen about the tart flavor! πŸ˜‰ I’m open to most new flavors though, and would probably give it a shot.

That happened to me with the Chobani pomegranate. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, but It’s definitely my favorite now. I really want to try the lemon. I love citrus.

5 Mimi March 3, 2011 at 8:22 am

I love anything lemon flavored, so I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes open for this! I was skeptical about the pomegranate flavor, but I really like it!

I used to love lemon yogurt back when I ate it a lot. It’s full of chemicals, but I’ve always thought that Light n Fit lemon chiffon is delicious!!

Yum! Lemon looks delicious! I will have to find some in my grocery store!! Good luck on your move!! So exciting!!

8 Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin March 3, 2011 at 8:25 am

All the new flavors are AMAZING. Black cherry, mango, and lemon – but lemon took the cake for me too!

This is my new favorite flavor as well!

10 Hope March 3, 2011 at 8:35 am

I didn’t like the lemon Chobani. I just couldn’t get into that flavor. I really like the mango though! I was skeptical about mango yogurt but after trying it, I am a big fan! πŸ™‚

Oh my God, yes! The same thing happened to me when I tried Chobani’s Strawberry-Banana yogurt. I had tried the original flavor first and hated it and I was worried that I would be unimpressed with the strawberry-banana flavor. But holy God, it was the best tasting yogurt I’ve ever had!

16 Dori March 3, 2011 at 8:51 am

Not a fan of lemon, glad you loved it though! I normally can’t stand anything BBQ flavored, but I was pleasantly surprised by the BBQ Popchips!

I’m not a fan of anything BBQ flavored either! Still can’t get into the BBQ Popchips though

18 sweeter salt March 3, 2011 at 8:55 am

I was hesitant of Chobani’s chocolate kid yogurt, as I’ve always hated chocolate flavored yogurts. But that one is delicious, a total treat.

my friend SWEARS by chobani peach. but i think i’d be interested to taste the lemon!

Chobani Peach was my long time favorite before they recently started releasing these new flavors. πŸ™‚

23 kalli March 3, 2011 at 9:08 am

yum the lemon sounds delicious in my book! Trader joes has this chocolate yogurt which i was a bit unsure about but it is soooooo good πŸ™‚ Enjoy your day packing!

This sounds delicious and so refreshing! The brand ‘Source’ has some dessert flavoured yogurts that I was a little skeptical about at first (yes, the same low calorie brand you’re probably thinking of – I know there’s artificial things in it but the lemon meringue pie flavout sounded oh so good!!!) It was absolutely delicious!

Glad to hear your take on the Lemon flavor-I’ve been looking for it at all the grocers around here but it hasn’t poppped up yet, can’t wait though! My WF recently started carrying raw kale chips in flavors like Kool Ranch and Nacho…I was a little scared, but they weren’t too bad!

I love love love the lemon. It’s perfect by itself. I’m sorry it took you so long to find out. It’s very refreshing. Perfect for this “springtime” weather we are already having.

28 Beth @ DiningAndDishing March 3, 2011 at 9:56 am

I’m always on the lookout for new yogurts and flavors. I take one in my lunch almost every day because they’re easy to pack and full of calcium. But the same ones can get tiresome. I’ll have to look out for the lemon flavor – it’s one of my favorite dessert flavors!

29 Jamie @ getalivingsense March 3, 2011 at 10:00 am

I tried the lemon Chobani recently, but really wasn’t a fan! I thought it was REALLY tart! But maybe if I mix it in with more things, it would tone it down a little? I’ll have to try that out! πŸ™‚

30 Meghann March 3, 2011 at 9:15 pm

I find mixing things in yogurt really cuts the flavor (that’s the only way I’ll eat plain πŸ™‚ )

31 Kristen March 3, 2011 at 10:00 am

There is not a flavor of Chobani that I don’t like!
I had pineapple this morning with Chia seeds in it- yummmmmmm

32 Fallon March 3, 2011 at 10:01 am

The lemon greek yogurt sounds very refreshing! I’ll have to check my grocery stores this weekend.

Have you ever tried the yogurt brand Wallaby? I absolutely love their creaminess and flavor of their yogurt. Bit high in sugar (for the flavored ones) but with all natural ingredients it makes a delicious treat to have once in a while! Their plain yogurt is pretty amazing too.

I’ve never tried the Wallaby, but I probably should. I tend to stick with Stonyfield and Chobani for some reason.

34 Michelle March 3, 2011 at 10:07 am

Lemon is absolutely the BEST flavor. They are always out of it at my Publix too. Boo. I bet it would awesome if you froze it. Kinda like a lemon custard!

Ah! I remember packing and moving so vividly. I only moved a couple miles away into a nicer, cheaper house, but I was lucky to have a week overlap between the places so I could move out of one, bring my stuff over the other and go back and clean the crap out of it! It also helped that I am a high school teacher and I recruited some of my students to help move my furniture into a uhall πŸ™‚ The whole move cost me very little. Good luck with yours!

38 Ashley March 3, 2011 at 10:20 am

I don’t eat yogurt, but when I first tried Kombuch I was a bit wary and now I love it! I’m glad you have your goals and priorities straight when you move to Tampa haha. Boxes might not be unpacked but you’ll have lemon yogurt. πŸ˜€

lemon is usually too strong for me too but i just tried the lemon chobani last week and loved it. i stuck it in the freezer to get a tiny bit frozen for dessert and forgot about it for longer than i wanted, but it was SO good!!! like dessert. πŸ™‚

Lemon chobani sounds amazing!

Also, part of your full-time job is now writing this blog, no? Have you considered paying an editor to proofread it for you? There are always so many mistakes.

Weary = wary
Complimented = complemented

I really really don’t mean to be rude. I get that proofreading is not the “fun” part of blog writing, but as a loyal reader who may soon choose to tune out- I felt like I needed to tell you.

54 Meghann March 3, 2011 at 9:25 pm

Hi M,

Thanks for the heads up. I’ve already corrected the grammar errors. I try to proofread, but it’s hard to catch everything. I appreciate the grammar help though!

55 Stacey March 3, 2011 at 12:29 pm

Just packed the lemon flavor today in my lunch bag! It was so awesome and I paired it with fresh sliced strawberries! The combination was super fresh and it is now my new favorite flavor of chobani (pineapple is amazing too). I really love your blog and I read everyday! I like many blogs for different reasons but I find that your blog is relatable, honest, and fun! Thanks for the inspiration every day!

56 Meghann March 3, 2011 at 9:26 pm

Thanks Stacey!! πŸ™‚

And next time I’ll try the lemon with strawberries!

57 Carly March 3, 2011 at 12:33 pm

AGREED! I found the lemon flavor the other day and was delighted when I discovered I enjoyed it as much as their pineapple flavor!

58 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey March 3, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Thanks for giving it a spoon, despite hesitancy! Sara from our Events team actually baked up a pretty delicious bread using the Lemon. It makes it super moist, and cuts the butter & sugar content, but not the yumminess. Thanks again! Have a great weekend.
