Brown Cow Cream on Top Greek yogurt review & Giveaway


Brown Cow Cream on top Greek yogurt
When is yogurt more than just a culinary staple used in cooking and with cereal and in smoothies? When it's Brown Cow's new Cream on Top Greek yogurt. Brown Cow has been my husband's favorite brand for a long time. It's the cream on top that makes it so decadent. It's not organic, but it's American Humane Certified which means you an be assured that the cows are treated humanely and are never given artificial growth hormones (rBST or rBGH). 

Like all of the Brown Cow yogurt I've tried, it's particularly mild and creamy. Some Greek yogurts can be very tangy, this will not make your mouth pucker. It's also very rich at 240 calories for an 8 ounce serving of plain and about 200 calories or so for the 6 ounce flavored varieties. Personally, this is not what I would necessarily use everyday, but rather as a dessert or as a dessert topping. It's very thick and by no means low fat. But it is yummy! 

Brown Cow Cream Top Greek yogurt is available in 6 ounce cups in blueberry, honey, maple and vanilla. I liked all the flavors, but blueberry was my least favorite because it contains no actual fruit, just a little blueberry juice. The honey and maple flavors were very fresh tasting, and lightly sweetened. I think the maple variety was the first I've ever tried that didn't have any artificial flavoring. Nice.
