Who does that?!

WHO PUTS HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP AND ASPARTAME IN THE SAME PRODUCT?

Yopliat.


YEAH. THAT'S WHO. fjdklasfjsdkl;afjls;aufajkl;!!

I was running late for work. I had to get gas. So, I tried to cobble a diet-friendly lunch out of whatever I could find at the gas station. Turkey wrap, yogurt, banana. Seems good, yes? Unfortunately for me, I didn't notice that I had grabbed the Yoplait light until I opened it and thought to myself, "Man, that smells sweeter than ice cream."

I took one bite and I can't even bring myself to finish this. I'm not even joking when I say that this yogurt tastes like Kool Aid. It is so far over the top in sweetness. There are a whopping 14 grams of sugars in this 6 oz cup. That means the composition of this dairy product is 8 percent sugar. As if that weren't enough, they added some carcinogenic sweetener for an extra kick in the cavities.

Light. Fat free. With 20 percent of your calcium and vitamin C. You would think that would mean healthy, and you would be all kinds of wrong. Michael Pollan would you in the shins, and you would deserve it. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's the absolute worst 100 calories you could consume, but why would you want to? Blech.

God, I know! I like yogurt. I would like to eat more of it. But I really can't stand how much sugar they put into it, and don't get me started on sugar substitutes. I really wish I could find a good, tasty, flavored yogurt with about half the sugar of what you normally find, but without any stupid other stuff put in instead.

I know! I think this is why diets fail. People are eating a "healthy" type of food but instead of it being ACTUAL food it's just a partially-hydrogenated sugarfest. THIS IS WHY AMERICA IS FAT.

Actually, one thing I've been doing... is getting a big thing of the vanilla all-natural yogurt, and then cutting it half and half with greek yogurt, which isn't sweetened. Try it with the pomegranate yogurt if you can. Maybe throw in some raspberries. It's a-w-e-s-o-m-e.

It sounds good. The other thing I try sometimes is to get the plain yogurt, or vanilla organic, which has less sugar, and stir in some jam. That way, I control the sugar, and it's actual good, tasty stuff.

I second this! Not great if you're on the run, but super cheap if you buy bulk yogurt. Especially if you can find good whole yogurt for the same price as "light," because it's so much more satisfying.
