Yoplait Greek 100 makes market debut
MINNEAPOLIS — Yoplait has introduced a 100-calorie strained Greek yogurt.
Yoplait Greek 100 is fat free and contains twice the amount of protein when compared with regular yogurt, Yoplait said. Packed in 5.3-oz. cups, the yogurt is available in such flavors as strawberry, black cherry, mixed berry, vanilla, peach and key lime.
"Greek yogurt has everything people are looking for in a snack, but sometimes, the calories can add up for those watching their intake," Yoplait Greek 100 marketing manager Liza Dopp said. "We’ve heard from calorie conscious consumers that there is a need for Greek yogurts with less than 150 calories, and we’re thrilled that Yoplait Greek 100 can answer that call."
Yoplait Greek 100 will be available nationwide this month for a suggested retail price of $1.29 per single-serve cup.
