Yoplait Whips! Review (Giveaway Closed)

I don't know about you, but I could eat ice cream every single day--especially during the summertime. I also know that it's not the healthiest choice: I need less fat, fewer calories, and more calcium. I'd been seeing TV commercials which suggested freezing Yoplait Whips! when I got an opportunity to do this review and giveaway.

I've had Yoplait Whips! before, and I really like the mousse-like consistency. I'm not a big fan of traditional yogurt, but I like custard-style yogurts and Yoplait Whips! I tried freezing Yoplait Thick & Creamy custard-style yogurt in the molds shown below, and it was very good. I couldn't wait to try freezing Yoplait Whips!

The first Yoplait Whips! flavor I tried freezing was Chocolate Mousse. It froze to a solid, but not as hard as ice; it was soft enough to bite into and to have a creamy consistency right away. It's not going to be mistaken for super-premium ice cream, but it's quite good--better than some low-fat "ice cream" bars I've tried.

The second flavor of Yoplait Whips! that we froze was Orange Creme. It's still in the freezer, but I tasted the chilled yogurt and it does resemble an orange-vanilla pop. Again, it's not going to be confused with a super-premium ice cream, but it's good. I think it's a good way to indulge without guilt.

My son wants to freeze the new Vanilla Creme flavor, but we haven't tried that yet. I haven't yet tried a flavor of Yoplait Whips! that I didn't like, and I predict that they'd all be good when frozen.

  3. Great Giveaway. Thanks!

  4. Yoplait Whips are my favorite yogurt. I prefer the whipped consistency instead of the usual yogurt "pudding like" type. All the flavors are yummy!

  5. Great giveaway! I love all strawberry flavors.
