Cool Summer Treats: Yoplait Whips! Review and Giveaway (8/30) CLOSED

Saturday, August 15, 2009 Posted by Dina N

Everyone in my family loves ice cream. There is no better treat for the hot summer months - just ask my kids! We love chocolate ice cream, vanilla ice cream, fruit sorbet, frozen yogurt, you name it. As a mom, I am concerned about the nutritional value of some varieties, and I read labels carefully - honestly, the fat and sugar content of certain ice creams makes me want to stick to iced water.

We are also big fans of yogurt. So, I was delighted to receive an invitation from MyBlogSpark to try a product I had not tasted before: Yoplait Whips!. And, guess what - I discovered that now you can have your "ice cream" and eat some important nutrients, all in the same delicious serving. Yoplait has come up with this yummy yogurt mousse that can be enjoyed as a frozen treat. All you need to do is place your favorite Yoplait Whips! yogurt cup in the freezer overnight and you will have a chilled summer treat in the morning. Just remove the Yoplait Whips! from the freezer for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Yoplait Whips! are currently available in a variety of yummy flavors: Strawberry Mist, Chocolate, Key Lime Pie, Orange Crème, Chocolate Raspberry, Lemon Burst, Peaches 'N Cream, Raspberry Mousse, and Vanilla Creme.

Thanks to MyBlogSpark, we received a "Summer Cool Down" gift bag that includes two free coupons for Yoplait Whips!, cooler tote, popsicle molds and a set of 12 color-changing spoons. I found the Yoplait Whips! at my local Kroger at $0.60 apiece. My kids and I picked chocolate and strawberry. First, we tried the yogurt as is. I loved the great taste and fluffy, light texture. I am a chocolate person, and the chocolate Yoplait Whips! made for a delicious sweet treat.

We used the popsicle molds to freeze Yoplait Whips! overnight and enjoyed them the next day. When they dug into the frozen goodies, my kids could not be more pleased. And of course they asked for seconds! The spoons and popsicle molds were a big hit, too. The molds allow you to combine two flavors in the same popsicle - and we had popsicles that were part chocolate and part strawberry, yum! You can mix and match as much as you want. We have a whole list of combinations in mind that we can't wait to try.

Besides being delicious, Yoplait Whips! are a good nutritional choice, too. At just 140 calories per 4 oz cup (160 for the chocolate variety), they provide 10% of your daily recommended protein, Vitamin A, and Vitamin D, 6% of the potassium, and 15% of the calcium and phosphorus.

Savings
Here is a downloadable coupon where you can save $0.60 when you purchase any three cups of Yoplait Whips! Click here to download.

Additionally, if you sign up to become a new subscriber of Betty Crocker's newsletter, you will receive a free coupon for Yoplait Whips! This free coupon is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee.

    My favorite Whips flavor is the chocolate mousse, but my favorite Yoplait flavor is the Cherry Pomegranate. I wonder if this would work with regular Yoplait, too, or if it only works right with the Whips.
