Hungry Girl Today: 08.30.07



WEEKLY WEIGH-IN



Today, two popular fat-free yogurts are going head-to-head in HG-Land --

Dannon Light & Fit vs. Yoplait Light. Which yogurt will take home HG's top

honor? Read on and see...





The Contenders



Dannon Light & Fit (6-oz. container, $.85 - $1.00)

Weighing in at 60 calories, 0g fat, 80 - 95mg sodium, 10 - 11g carbs, 0g

fiber, 7 - 8g sugars, 5g protein and a POINTS® value of 1*.



Yoplait Light (6-oz. container, $.85 - $1.00)

Weighing in at 100 - 110 calories, 0g fat, 85 - 90mg sodium, 19 - 20g carbs,

0g fiber, 14 - 15g sugars, 5 - 6g protein and a POINTS® value of 2*.







Packaging



Dannon Light & Fit - These containers are pretty standard. The design is

nothing special. But, in addition to the foil seal, there's a plastic lid. We like

that. Your yogurt is extra-safe. Weeee!



Yoplait Light - Yoplait offers up a more uniquely shaped container that

somehow feels richer. The smaller "mouth" and sleek design make this

product look and feel a bit more upscale. Plus, the small opening means you

need to use a smaller spoon, so your yogurt will last longer. Brilliant!



The Winner - Yoplait Light. It's fancy, fun and functional.







Nutritionals



Dannon Light & Fit - With 60 calories and 0g fat per container, this stuff is a

MAJOR nutritional bargain! It's also sweetened with Splenda (sucralose),

which is a plus.



Yoplait Light - Depending on the flavor, each container of Yoplait Light will

cost you 100 - 110 calories and 0g fat. This stuff contains aspartame (we like

Splenda more).



The Winner - Dannon Light & Fit takes this category -- no contest.







Taste



Dannon Light & Fit - We hate to say this, but Dannon Light & Fit went downhill

(in a MAJOR way) a few years ago when they decided to change their

formula and lower their calorie count. The result was/is a thinner yogurt with

more of an aftertaste. Sad times! This yogurt's not all that impressive as a

grab & go option, but it's great to use in recipes for parfaits and smoothies.



Yoplait Light - It may have more calories, but this thick, creamy, delicious

stuff is worth EVERY last one. Yum!



The Winner - Yoplait Light -- this one's not even close.







Flavors



Dannon Light & Fit - Comes in 12 flavors: Blackberry, Blueberry, Cherry

Vanilla, Lemon Chiffon, Orange Mango, Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry,

Strawberry Banana, Strawberry Kiwi, Vanilla, and White Chocolate

Raspberry. Impressive!



Yoplait Light - Comes in 18 flavors: Apple Turnover, Apricot Mango, Banana

Cream Pie, Berries 'N Cream, Blackberry, Blueberry Patch, Boston Cream

Pie, Harvest Peach, Key Lime Pie, Lemon Cream Pie, Orange Crème, Red

Raspberry, Strawberries 'N Bananas, Strawberry, Strawberry Orange

Sunrise, Very Cherry, Very Vanilla, and White Chocolate Strawberry. MORE

impressive!



The Winner - Yoplait Light takes it. 18 insanely creative flavors -- our

favorites are Apple Turnover, Banana Cream Pie, and Boston Cream Pie.

Mmmmmm!







Extra Credit

The Winner - It's a tie! Both of these companies are committed to helping

keep women healthy. Good work!







And our overall winner is...



Yoplait Light!!!!!! While we use Dannon Light & Fit for various things, at the

end of the day, we have a real love affair with Yoplait Light. We like our

yogurt rich, decadent and satisfying, and this stuff delivers in a HUGE way.

Congratulations to both of today's dairy-rific competitors!
