~Stonyfield Oikos Organic Yogurt~ Review & Giveaway!

*Giveaway Closed*

When I started planning this "Spring Into Health" blog event, I wanted to share some great products that are healthy and promote good health. So when I was introduced to Stonyfield and their great products, I was very excited to try them!
I Love yogurt and I love it for a snack for my children! But before now I hardly ever bought it, since my local grocer only carries non-organic brands. As you can imagine, I was delighted to find Stonyfield's Oikos at our Wal-Mart!


I like Stonyfields products because they have the great live active cultures that make yogurt so beneficial to your diet.

From the Stonyfield site:

"The unique blend of six live active cultures in our Stonyfield yogurt gives your body natural balance. Our cultures include the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which has been clinically shown to:

help increase probiotic culture levels in the gut;
help strengthen the immune system;
help support the body’s natural resistance to harmful bacteria;
enhance the activity of natural killer cells—key components of the immune system that are known to decrease as we grow older.

Our six live active cultures

All yogurts contain the starter cultures Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. While some major-brand yogurts contain only one or two additional cultures, we add four more natural probiotics to our Stonyfield yogurts, for a total of six:

Lactobacillus bulgaricus
Streptococcus thermophilus
Lactobacillus acidophilus
Bifidus
Lactobacillus casei
Lactobacillus rhamnosus

Our Oikos Organic Greek yogurt contains five live active cultures
."

Want to see how they make their yogurt? Visit this link for a great video!

We have tried the Oikos in plain, chocolate, and blueberry and I can hardly wait to try the caramel, and vanilla! The yogurt is so luscious and tasty and it has a what I think is a "wholesome" taste to it! =)

The Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt has many great flavors:

Plain
Vanilla
Blueberry
Honey
Strawberry
Chocolate
Caramel

Stonyfield has a great line of YoBaby yogurt, meals, drinkables, and Yokids yogurt and squeezers!

Plus a line of fat free yogurt, frozen yogurt, ice cream, smoothies, o'soy, etc!!!!
Check out their great line of products HERE!

i learned that there is a HUGE difference between "natural" & "organic"

Natural doesn't have a set, strictly defined or regulated definition. and Organic does.

Organic means growing without the use of an toxic pesticides or GMOS.
