Eating all flavors of yogurt so you don't have to.

Gravity-defying yogurt

Yesterday we made the long trek out to the beautiful Brown County State Park.
As you can see, it was probably the most gorgeous yogurt eating thus far, perhaps not even in our journey but in the world over. At least on the scale that we eat yogurt.

The one downfall of eating yogurt there is that near wonders, one must often make compromises about one's wooden tables. The table we sat at, while being in the shade, was at about a nine degree slope, assuming Siarra is good at balancing her camera.

Both Yeesoo and I felt a little carsick after sitting so precariously, but we were determined to not let such odd gravitational feelings detract from our yogurt ratings. As it turned out, the yogurt we picked was perfect for this askew situation, as it was possibly the thickest yet, with the exception of Yoplait Delights.
I must say, Yoplait knows thick. Their Thick and Creamy varieties, both Light and not Light, were almost pudding-like. While Jessica enjoyed that consistency, I tried to imagine mixing such yogurt with granola, which is how I like my yogurt, and came up very puzzled. Would my wrists get sore after mixing such thick yogurt? Would the granola be able to soak any of the yogurt up, as I like it to? Would the consistency of the yogurt force me to occasionally resort to YoBaby and YoKids to balance consistencies? Lastly, can Thick and Creamy really be Light? Such questions perturbed me throughout the experience.

In terms of flavor, though, the day was lovely. Yeesoo did not enjoy Cinnamon Roll at all, but Siarra and I, who are dessert yogurt fans, found it lovely and 12ish. Yoplait Thick and Creamy merited a 17, the highest yogurt has ever gotten, from Jessica, though the rest of us found it only in 16 or 15 range. Jessica is known for her love of Vanilla, though, and she didn't have my consistency issues.

It was a beautiful day of yogurting, followed by excellent board games. I highly recommend Jumanji to anyone who likes to get really really stressed out and then have a wonderful cathartic release of fear once a teammate calls "Jumanji!!!" Truly, the game is not about surviving, but is instead about winning. Here, as always, are the averages:

We are two.

Hello World.

Today Siarra and I partook in 6 different varieties of yogurts that we bought from Bloomingfoods: Cascade Fresh, Silk, Whole Soy and Co., Liberte, and Brown Cow Low Fat and Cream Tops.

After buying our yogurt, we went to the Mall Food Court where there were plenty of open tables for us to use. After stacking and taking the usual pictures, we got right down to business. First came the Whole Soy and Co. yogurts which boasted the same disappearing flavor as the other yogurts from the same brand. The texture was acceptable, but the fruit flavor disappeared very quickly and we were left with just the soy. Peach was the best of the three - just managing to nab a score of ten. (Any score above ten means that we would finish the yogurt if we were eating it normally. Anything higher than about 12 means that we would not only finish but purchase again.)

Next came the Silk yogurts. Strawberry was the standout in the category, while Blueberry was the worst. It was noted that the Silk yogurt (also soy) had a longer lasting flavor than the Whole Soy, but that was not necessarily a good thing. Siarra pointed out that the aftertaste was almost that of bathroom cleaner. Not exactly delicious.

Brown Cow Lemon Twist got high markings just for being what it said it was. It tasted like yogurt ought to and was pleasantly lemon-y. The chocolate, on the other hand, was really, really bad. It was bitter and tasted more like black coffee than anything else. We even checked the container to make sure that it wasn't coffee by mistake.

The Cascade Fresh yogurts followed, where Boysenberry was the clear winner. I had never heard of boysenberries before, but the container had a picture of a fruit that was akin to a blackberry. On the whole, it was very refreshing and a thoroughly delightful yogurt.

And now, for the real winning brand of the session: Liberte. This yogurt is more of a greek-style yogurt. It was really thick and rich. It boasted unique flavors which were well developed and consistent. All three of the yogurts that we had were really good. The Strawberry was the best of the three, but the Plum Walnut had a really good, nutty flavor. Siarra and I discussed how eating the yogurt made us happy. That is something that I hadn't come across yet. I truly enjoyed eating these.

After we cleaned up our mess, we played a Harry Potter board game which we had brought. There are lots of fun pictures - take a look when Siarra posts them.

On a whole, today reinforced the idea that soy yogurts just aren't that good and that Greek yogurts triumph. Stay tuned for the latest pictures and for Friday's yogurt sessions. See the below post for complete ratings.

Yogurt by Firelight (with a little help from a flashlight, too)

Siarra again, with the update:

Saturday night, the yogurt eaters assembled in my backyard for a special edition late night EAFYIDPET by firelight. As if this summer hasn't been hot enough, we had to create our own heat source. Luckily, the sun was down, so it was actually pretty nice. However, the sun being down created problems of its own when we had trouble seeing the yogurt. Jessica in particular was quite disturbed, and we passed around a flashlight to make sure we could see what we were eating.

We started with a round of Kroger Fruit on the Bottom, where the flashlight immediately proved its use, since otherwise I'm sure we would have failed miserably at getting all of the chunks and fruit goo stirred in properly. Peach was particularly strange, however, as there wasn't any fruit goo . . . simply chunks. Furthermore, the flavor was very subtle, and also had a hint of pineapple.

After Fruit on the Bottom, there was Kroger Blended. As a group, Blended has a nice texture, though as Jessica said, "They aren't blended very well" as some of them still have fruit chunks. Cherry was quite disappointing in this type, and we gave it a unanimous 7. However, Cherry Vanilla is my new personal favorite. It has a very interesting flavor that Kaela identified as chocolate. I'd highly recommend, though Kaela and Jessica disagree.

Blueberry was our only Kroger Lite flavor of the night. I'm pretty sure that this was the odd blueberry flavor (our third of the session) in that it "whispered". The flavor simply wasn't very strong.

As a matter of fact, all of the aforementioned yogurts (aside from the wonderful cherry vanilla) were pretty bland. They weren't particularly bad, and are definitely acceptable for passive yogurt eating as a quick breakfast or with lunch, but nothing remarkable.

Then we come to Dan-o-Nino. Don't get excited. These tiny yogurts targeted at children don't fit into the bland category because they were delicious. No. The three flavors we had today, strawberry banana, vanilla, and peach, were probably the thickest and heaviest yogurts I've ever eaten, as well as being extremely chalky and otherwise unpleasant. Plus, the flavor was not at all a redeeming quality. The only upside was the fact that the package came with a cute magnet. However, we do not look forward to the six or so more flavors.

That was it for our yogurt rating, but the fun was not over quite yet. We weren't going to let the fire go to waste so we made s'mores. And even though Jessica dropped her marshmallow on the ground and a new one had to be toasted, a good time was had by all.

Keep your eyes out for the next blog post!

“Do not eat crackers from the hand that scratches the foot.”

Hello all,

Today’s yogurt adventure was quite successful, beginning with the purchase of 16 Kroger Light, and 2 Kroger Blended yogurts, and a pleasant drive over to Highland Village Park. I maybe shouldn’t say that it was a pleasant drive, because Dennis and Jessica were busy playing their kazoos the entire time.

Upon arrival we wandered around the park looking for an unoccupied table, and finally settled for one near the playground. We promptly unpacked, stacked, and photographed our cups, and began eating. It should be noted that our rating system (1-20) produces “all inclusive” numbers. This means that our ratings take into account not just flavor, but also texture, consistency, etc.

That being said, we found most of the yogurts to be quite delicious. Of the Lights, the French Apple, Vanilla, Peach Pomegranate, and Strawberry all received impressive ratings. Some of the yogurts had bits of fruit in them – as many brands do. But Kroger’s bits of fruit were…crispier? Crunchier? I’m not quite sure how to describe them, but they tasted more like real fruit than some of the other brands we have had.

But our good luck couldn’t last forever. What would an EAFYIDPET session be without a few horrendous flavors? The Piña Colada had some of us gagging, while others stuffed crackers in their mouths and ran for the water fountain to wash their spoons. Yes, it was bad enough that we couldn’t even lick the rest of it off our utensils. It is not only the yogurt with the lowest average thus far, but it is also our first flavor to receive 0’s as ratings. In short, we don’t recommend that one, ever…under any circumstances. The Coconut Cream was also pretty gross, but palatable, unlike its aforementioned coconut counterpart, and it acquired an average rating of 3. In addition, we had two flavors that received special notes in our logs. Dennis remarked that the Orange yogurt tasted very much like the orange flavored fluoride you get at the dentist; and many of us were shocked to find that the Blackberry Pomegranate has a slightly fishy taste.

The two Blended yogurts we tried were pretty good, but nothing special. I quite liked the texture; they were thick, and very smooth. Jessica commented that they tasted exactly like Kroger’s frozen yogurts of the same flavors.

Overall, I think we had a good day. Kroger was full of surprises (mostly good, but some shockingly bad), and I would consider buying many of the flavors again. The texture was pleasant, and much more normal than some of the organic yogurts we’ve had the last few weeks. We still have quite a few Kroger yogurts to get through, so expect another post about them in the future! Hopefully round two will be just as successful as the first.

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check back for more updates! Our schedule might get a little strange for the next two weeks, as many of us are involved with camps and other summer activities, but we’ll continue to make posts. Just keep watching for them!


Kroger Light round 1 averages

I say "round 1" hoping that there is a round 2. I enjoyed Kroger Light, though we did come upon our worst yogurt yet! Kaela is the blogger for the day, but here are the averages:

More organic yogurts...

There was not meant to be any enthusiasm in the title. I am all for organic and did rate the soy yogurts higher because they were soy, but there needs to be some taste work done.... In other news, this was the first time we had all of us together!!!

Hannah is the blogger for the session, but, as always, here are the averages, as provided by our President of Information Services, Kaela (that was a lot of appositives...):

Whole Soy and Co.:
Blueberry - 10.5
Cherry -  9
Lemon - 8.5
Brown Cow Cream Top:
Blueberry - 9.16666666666667

Strawberries 'n Cream - 10.5

The Amazing Disappearing Flavor

Hi, everyone! We had our yogurt-eating session a day early this week due to schedule conflicts tomorrow. Today we met at the smallest Bloomingfoods in town and actually ended up buying all of the flavors there that we hadn't already tried at our previous Bloomingfoods foray. Even though this sounds like an impressive achievement, it only added up to ten flavors, compared to our usual 14.

After we finished buying our yogurt for the day, we walked to the courthouse and sat at a memorial. We debated whether or not this was disrespectful, but when we saw that the inscription on the memorial urged us to "drink and be merry," or something similar, we figured that eating yogurt and being merry would be okay with the woman for whom the monument was built.

We began our experience with soy yogurt today with some of Whole Soy and Co's flavors. This yogurt was very interesting, because although the flavor started out being very good, the taste soon disappeared and was inevitably replaced by a bland soy taste. With each flavor, we began the cup of yogurt impressed but were increasingly confused by the fact that the taste simply... left.

While eating the soy yogurt, we realized that the sky was looking quite ominous. Afraid of what the rain might do to our yogurt, we gathered up all of our cups and searched for shelter. While walking into the Fountain Square Mall, we ran into our schoolmate Jamaica with a friend. We were very excited, because Dennis had just finished printing our business cards, so we gave them our first two!! We even took a picture.

In Fountain Square Mall, we finally settled in a circle on the floor in front of the waterfall. Apart from a few strange looks and a call from the security guard to not leave a mess, we didn't get approached again, so there was no call for more business-card awesomeness. We then settled down to the matter of cream tops.

It sounds like a good idea, doesn't it? Cream in yogurt? Delicious. People sometimes eat cream with fruit, so how bad could cream with yogurt be?

Pretty bad.

Although we found both Stoneyfield and Brown Cow Cream Top yogurt to have generally good flavor in terms of the fruit, the addition of cream simply made the yogurt taste weird. Sometimes the addition of extra cream was more palatable than other times, but inevitably the taste of butter would linger long after the taste of fruit. Mostly, it would be buttery-tasting, but there were also odd instances of certain yogurts tasting like their fruit along with other food items. The Brown Cow strawberry definitely tasted like strawberry jam and butter on toast, and Siarra insisted that the Brown Cow maple tasted like waffles with syrup. Both toast and waffles are great, but the taste of these foods in yogurt put us off (except for Siarra, who seemed to enjoy it), similarly to the pineapple upside-down cake and apple turnover yogurts from Tuesday.

Thus, with soy and cream top yogurt, we ended our yogurting for today. For the next few weeks, we will all be on strange schedules and will therefore need to find unusual times to meet. Until then, look for our ratings and pictures from today, coming soon!

We have our first testimonial, which came from Caroline of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Caroline says, "i don't know why i found this, but your yogurt blog is amazing. it's about time somebody suffered through all the flavors of yogurt so that I don't have to! I hate buying yogurt that turns out to be disgusting, so I really appreciate what you're doing! hahaha." Thank you, Caroline! We're glad to be of service.

On Yo Parking Garage, Eatin' Yo Yogurtz

Today was an EAFYIDPET win. After I managed to find Hannah, Jessica, and Dennis on the roof of the parking garage (turned out I didn't realize there was even more roof), we were ready to embark on some pretty epic yogurt-eating.

The Danimals crush cups are epic, but not necessarily in a good way. The yogurt tasted fine, but the intended method of eating was rather impractical. Crushing the yogurt cup leads to a lot of slurping, licking, and yogurt all over your face. It's also impossible to get all of the yogurt out of the cup, because, as Dennis said, "there comes a point where you just can't crush anymore." What a waste of perfectly good yogurt. I see this as a fun gimmick for 5th-grade boys who wouldn't otherwise eat yogurt. It doesn't make very much sense for adults, but I suppose it's not supposed to. It is Danimals, after all.

Yoplait Light Apple Turnover and Pineapple Upside Down Cake were shocking. They taste exactly like what they're supposed to taste like. Not necessarily in a good way. Dennis remarked that you could taste the butter in the Pineapple Upside Down Cake yogurt, which was distressing. While it tasted somewhat like pineapple, it mostly tasted like cake. It was weird city.

Yo Crunch was underwhelming. Not nearly as good as I had remembered, though it had been years since I last had them. The granola in the Strawberry and Granola flavor was not highly delicious--it tasted processed. It got soggy very quickly, yielding a texture more like Yo Chew. If I were to eat it again, I would leave the granola on top and eat without mixing. Most of the Yo Crunch flavors were fine, but nothing special. The yogurt flavors were bland and the add-ins were what brought the deliciousness. The strawberry with m&ms was definitely the best of the varieties. The yogurt actually had chunks of strawberry and the m&ms gave a pleasant flavor also. The colors from the candy ran, giving a bizarre rainbow of yogurt that wasn't entirely appealing, but it was delicious nonetheless. Pictures to come.

Our last yogurt was the Yoplait Delights, which claimed to be a parfait. It only really resembled a parfait in that it had layers. It was basically two layers of pudding. It was far too thick to be truly called yogurt, in my opinion. It was quite rich, and I couldn't really decide if I liked it or not. I would not buy again, but Jessica likes them a lot, so readers may need to try it and decide for themselves.

So, the aforementioned Yogurt Surprise was in fact EAFYIDPET posters and business cards! Now, instead of explaining EAFYIDPET to passers-by, we will be able to hand out business cards containing all of the information they desire. The posters are full of whimsical intrigue. We intend to post them around town to attract attention to EAFYIDPET. This should be a successful venture. We'll see.

Be sure to check back soon for EAFYIDPET pictures and more yogurt updates!

"There comes a point where you just can't crush anymore!"

We had a wonderful yogurt session today on top of the Atwater Parking Garage. My yogurt surprise was awesome posters and business cards that are soon to be plastered around Bloomington. Adam is the blogger for the session, so I'm sure he'll post once he's done with his lab. Until then, here is the data!

Yogurt Surprise

There is apparently a Yogurt Surprise awaiting me. I am only posting about it to leave you all in the same suspense that I am in.

Tomorrow night needs to hurry up.

Keep on Moving Past Stoneyfield

Hello World,

Yesterday we sampled yogurt from Bloomingfoods and ate under an awning on the B-line Trail. The largest group of Yogurt Eaters yet (8!) tried Stoneyfield Yo Baby, Yo Kids, Light and Fat Free. None of these were as big of a hit as Wednesday's Yoplait Lights. The highest average score of the day was almost a full three points lower than the highest average score from Wednesday.

Yo Baby and Yo Kids are aptly named and not meant for adults who like a normal texture and consistency in their yogurt. Both were extremely runny and we had our share of mishaps with dripping. Moreover, the flavors were poorly developed and there was nothing extraordinary about any of the flavors except that there did not seem to be any.

With the first two groups finished, we had our fingers crossed that the Lights and Fat Free would blow us away and save our yogurt experience. No such luck. Both types required a lot of stirring and the lumps never fully disappeared. The typical flavors like blueberry and raspberry were average and the more atypical flavors like Chocolate Underground or Strawberry Pomegranate fluctuated around the averages (although I found Chocolate Underground to be especially distasteful).

With that said, we got 19 yogurts out of the way and enjoyed the beautiful evening, even if the yogurt was not overwhelmingly good. People still had their favorites: Adam really liked Key Lime Fat Free and Hannah (once again) favored banana flavored yogurt and liked the Banilla Yo Kids. Overall, there are more delicious yogurts available.

Stay tuned for more EAFYIDPET ratings!

Jessica's opinion of Chocolate Underground

This is only because she hasn't posted yet:

Stoneyfield ratings

Stoneyfield didn't do well as a brand - the consistency was runny and decidedly icky. The favorite of the day was the Stoneyfield fat-free Lemon at 12.6. Jessica is the blogger for the day, so hopefully she'll be updating soon. Until then, here are the averages:

Stoneyfield Fat Free:
Chocolate Underground - 6.4
French Vanilla - 10.8
Key Lime - 8.6
Lemon - 12.6
Strawberry - 7.8
Super Fruits - 10.6
Stoneyfield Low Fat:

Siarra here with today's EAFYIDPET update:

Today, I was late to the yogurt eating experience and had to catch up with everyone at the designated eating area: Hannah's house. When I was parking I was surprised to see Hannah open her front door and stick a note on it before hurrying back inside. Upon reading the note, I found the invitation to "come in and find us". Where did I find the elusive Hannah, Kaela, and Jessica, you might ask? Well, in the No-Boys-Allowed-Super-Secret-Clubhouse behind Hannah's couch.

Dennis and Adam couldn't make it today so we dedicated the clubhouse for our yogurt eating to their . . . absence.

Today, we had a lovely menu of Yoplait Light and most of them were pretty good, let me tell you. My personal favorite of the day was . . . Strawberry Shortcake, if I remember correctly. We tried several of the Yoplait Light desert flavors. Key Lime Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, Red Velvet Cake, and Boston Creme Pie were on the list. I'd never really put much stock in the commercials that rave about how good they are, while a husband digs vainly through the refrigerator for all the yummy desert, but they were really pretty good. After our yogurt excursions are complete, I'll have to run out and get some of these flavors.

After giving our ratings, our fort promptly fell down and the rocks we used to hold it up seemed to have landed on Kaela's head, but I think we made it out without any lasting injuries. Be sure to check out the updated Master List and come back sometime in the next few days for pictures of today's EAFYIDPET and our new poster!

The Backstory

Hi, everyone! I'm Hannah. I just wanted to clarify a few topics about our EAFYIDPET mission for this summer. It all started one day during lunch. Jessie, Kaela, and I all sit together, but one day I was gone. Jessie and Kaela began a conversation about yogurt and how much they liked it (because who doesn't like yogurt?). Jessie, Dennis, Adam, Siarra and I are all outgoing high school seniors, so I think we felt a need to have a summer project, just so that we could see each other more than we otherwise might during the summer. What better way to link hanging out with friends to yogurt than to have a summer project involving yogurt?

So it was decided. Our whole summer would be spent eating yogurt. How hard could it be, we reasoned (I was let in on the plan when I returned to school), to go to each of the major grocery stores in town, catalog each brand and flavor of yogurt, and then eat them all? At first, we thought we could accomplish the task with just the three of us.

On the first day of our project, then, Kaela, Jessica, and I went to Kroger, Marsh, and Bloomingfoods (the co-op) and cataloged each flavor of yogurt. Then we did the math. With 332 different flavors of yogurt in Bloomington, we would need to eat 14 different flavors of yogurt twice a week in order to complete our goal by the end of the summer. We started right away and bought 14 different Marsh brand flavors. About an hour later, we realized how absurd this way of completing our goal really was: our stomachs hurt and we only felt like going to sleep. There was no way that we could possibly accomplish this goal by ourselves.

That was the way that we decided that we needed back-up. Our friends were more than willing to help. With four or more people at our twice-a-week sessions, consuming so much yogurt is much easier.

We've been keeping a spreadsheet with each of our individual ratings for each flavor of yogurt. We also document each place where we eat the yogurt, because once we eat yogurt in one place, we are forbidden to eat yogurt there again. So far, we've visited Marsh's cafeteria, Lake Griffy's Dam, Karst Farm Park, Dunn Meadow, and behind the couch at my house. The idea behind this "Different Places Every Time" rule was to explore interesting places in and around Bloomington.

Siarra has been assigned to document our yogurt-eating session for today. Until then,

Hello World

We, the EAFYIDPETers of Bloomington, would like to welcome you on our journey. It all started with a prospect of a whole summer and a whole lot of yogurt. It has turned into an almost religious mission dedicated to rating all the flavors of yogurt. Join us. Agree or disagree with our ratings. Vote for your favorite. But most importantly, enjoy some yogurt.
