Chobani Champions

Awesome by the Spoonful

Today Being the 5 year Birthday For Chobani I thought it a perfect time to put out my review of this product. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 

Product: Chobani Champions [Assorted Flavors] 

Grade: A+

Pros: Cost Effective, Great Taste, Coupons available on website, Easy open for little hands, Natural Ingredients, Hormone Free Cows, No preservatives, No Artificial Colors, No Artificial Sweeteners, Freezable, Kosher, Gluten Free, Free of allergens such as nut, soy, wheat, and shellfish! 

Cons: Flavor Availability nearby.

Would I Reccomend? Unwaveringly, Yes. The product is terrific and unmatched by any other I have tried. It's the only flavored yogurt I use and my daughter loves it too! It's important to me to provide her with healthy [cost effective] food and Chobani has really hit a homerun with the Champions Line. All four flavors: Banana Honey, Orange Vanilla, Very Berry, and Vanilla Chocolate Chunk taste great, and I don't have to worry about artificiality and growth hormones. The Orange Vanilla flavor even has real orange pulp in it! Something I haven't found in any other orange yogurt. If you haven't tried it yet you should! It's hard to find brands you can trust, and Chobani has found it's way into my home, our lunch boxes, and our tummies!


Four Examples: 

You'll definitely be seeing more of them in our lunches!

Organic Valley Individual Milks

Better than the Best!

Product: Organic Valley 1% Milk fat Chocolate Milk.  

Grade: A+!

Pros: Cost effective, coupons available on the website, individually packaged, easy to open, organic, doesn't require refridgeration.

Cons: The product itself, none. My store stopped carrying them, so now actually getting THIS brand is difficult. 

Would I recommend? This product has been in nearly 2/3 of the lunches I have packed my daughter this school year. It's something I can feel really good about her having in her lunch box. It's made with products I can read and understand, by a farmer nearby to me! You can identify your area farm on their website and see directly where the milk is coming from. My daughter loves chocolate milk, like most kids, but there are tons of concerns for me about growth hormones, antibiotics, etc... when it comes to the cows our milk is coming from. Organic Valley has taken the fear out of drinking milk. It's easy to open and since it only needs refrigeration after opening I don't have to worry about keeping it cold in the lunch box (though I would prefer it cold).

Ziploc Divided Rectangle

Ziploc Divided Rectangle - The Holy Grail!

Grade: A+ 

Pros: Reusable, Cost Effective, Freezer Safe, Microwave Safe, Dishwasher Safe, Leak Proof, BPA Free.

Cons: I could only find them at Target, I searched all over! Also, didn't fit my daughter's rounded lunch box, needs a rectangular lunch box to fit in.

Where I got it: Target

Would I recommend? I am totally in L-O-V-E with these containers and will recommend them to anyone that will listen. Similar containers either cost too much or were not leak proof, so the separate areas contaminated eachother. Not this one! Each section is individually sealed and keeps liquids away from other items. I hate most of my food touching, so this is really great for me! I am not only using them in K's lunches but mine as well. By far my favorite purchase to date!
