We normally get the Yoplait Light at Costco but this month’s coupon book offered a $4.20 (yes, that’s $4.20, not $4.00 or $4.50 but exactly $4.20…strange, right?) discount on the Chobani Greek yogurt.
We’ve been hearing about greek yogurt a lot, even got to try a sample at Costco the other day so since we needed to buy yogurt, we decided to get the Chobani this time.
I think one of the main advantages of the Chobani greek yogurt is that it uses only natural ingredients. Yoplait has all sorts of unnatural ingredients, now that I’m looking at it closer.
Nonfat Yogurt (cultured Pasteurized Nonfat Milk, Live And Active Cultures: S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidus And L. Casei), Blueberries, Evaporated Cane Juice, Pectin, Locust Bean Gum, Natural Flavor.
Chobani also has less sodium and more protein. On the flip side, Chobani has more calories and sugar.
Anyway, Costco sells Chobani in a 15-pack box with 3 flavors, five 6-oz cups each of blueberry, strawberry and peach. A box costs $13.79.
I’ve seen Chobani on sale flyers for Target, Nob Hill, Lucky supermarket, etc. They are generally on sale for $1 for the 6 oz cups.
Cost of one 6oz Chobani cup at Target/Nob Hill/etc. = $1
Cost of one 6oz Chobani cup at Costco without coupon = $0.92 —> Savings over Target/Nob Hill/etc.= 8%
Cost of one 6oz Chobani cup at Costco with January’s $4.20 coupon = $0.64 —> Savings over Target/Nob Hill/etc.= 36% !
So, YES, Chobani Greek Yogurt is cheaper at Costco without coupon but it’s even cheaper with January’s coupon!
Have you tried Chobani Yogurt? Where do you normally get it? Do you pay more or less than the Costco price?
