News: Ben & Jerry's - New Greek Frozen Yogurt

Ben & Jerry's is out with a new line of Greek Frozen Yogurts in four flavors: Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Banana Peanut Butter, and Blueberry Vanilla Graham.

Greek yogurt has gotten pretty popular lately, it costs more than regular yogurt and the taste takes some getting used to, but its popularity stems from its richer texture, greater amounts of protein, and lesser amounts of carbs and sugar over the regular stuff.

For a little more detail: Strawberry Shortcake is strawberry Greek frozen yogurt with shortbread pieces; Raspberry Fudge Chunk features raspberry Greek frozen yogurt with fudge chunks; Banana Peanut Butter consists of banana Greek frozen yogurt with peanut butter swirls; and Blueberry Graham Vanilla is a blend of blueberry and vanilla Greek frozen yogurt with graham cracker swirls.

Ben & Jerry's Greek Frozen Yogurt is available in pints and mini-cups (Banana Peanut Butter and Raspberry Fudge Chunk only in the mini-cups) at retail and by the scoop and various forms at Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops.

You can check out the nutritional information below. I've included Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia Frozen Yogurt for comparison purposes. Generally, the Greek line has a bit more fat and a little less carbs and protein than the regular Frozen Yogurt.
