Outsmarting Temptation with Yoplait Light Giveaway/Review

Temptation is not a good thing when you are trying to watch what you eat; even more difficult when you have others around you that leave tempting foods out for you to see.

One way to outsmart temptation is to indulge that craving with yogurt. With so many different flavors and brands you are sure to find one that is perfect for you. One of my favorites is the Thick and Creamy French Vanilla from Yoplait; which is why I was thrilled when Yoplait and MyBlogSpark sent me a gift set with a coupon to try the new flavors.
Blueberry Pie

Red Velvet Cake

Did you know that....

Red Velvet Cake 400 calories, 24 grams of fat per slice
Yoplait Light Red Velvet Cake 100 calories, 0 gram of fat per serving

Blueberry Pie 360 calories, 17 grams of fat per slice
Yoplait Light Thick & Creamy Blueberry Pie 100 calories, 0 gram of fat per serving

So, now when you are tempted to grab a dessert you can instead indulge in either of Yoplaits new yogurts without all the extra calories. In fact, you don't have to use them just to curb your temptations because they are the perfect snack between meals. Yoplait light yogurts also provide 20 percent of the recommended daily value of calcium and vitamin D. 

It took me awhile to find the newest flavors at the store but when I did I also picked up the Cherry Cobbler to try. I'm telling you it's difficult to pick because there are 32 wonderful flavors and they all sound so yummy. They were all good but I did like the Thick and Creamy better however, that's just personal preference on my part. They just seem more rich and decadent and makes me wish they had more flavors in the Think and Creamy selection.

The only thing I did not like was that they use Splenda as the sweetener. There is nothing wrong with that at all except the fact that I am very sensitive to those types of sweeteners. So, if you have no problems with the sweeteners then you are most likely going to love the new flavors.

You are also going to love the fact that Yoplait and MyBlogSpark are giving one of my readers the same Yoplait Light "Outsmarting Temptation" gift set that I got. It includes an insulated gourmet lunch tote, a food journal, a travel utensil set and a coupon for one cup of yogurt.

Please note *The coupon offer for a free cup of Yoplait Light yogurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee that doesn't mean you can't enter but you wouldn't be able to use the coupon.


Can't wait to try the new flavors? Head over to Yoplait's website and grab a coupon for a $1 off or check out some of the recipes you can make using Yoplait..seriously there are some yummmmy looking ones.
