Here is the gigantic yogurt aisle at my local grocery store.
The Greek yogurts are at eye level, but the traditional yogurts are on the bottom shelves.
Here is a relative newcomer to the yogurt scene. Though Elli Quark, Creamy German Style, is not really yogurt, it is a soft cheese. On the website, it refers to itself as "cheesecake in a cup." I purchased the Sea Salt Caramel, Brownie Batter and Mixed Berry flavors. Here is the website for Elli Quark: https://www.elliquark.com/ Non-GMO, no sugar added, gluten free.
Brownie Batter: 100 calories, 4.5 grams fat, 9 grams total carbs, 6 grams net carbs, 12 grams protein
Sea Salt Caramel: 90 calories, 0 grams fat, 11 grams total carbs, 6 grams net carbs, 14 grams protein
Mixed Berry: 100 calories, 4.5 grams fat, 9 grams total carbs, 5 grams net carbs, 12 grams protein
This is the Brownie Batter flavor, which was disappointing. I expected a chocolately concoction with brownie pieces or bits, but this didn't deliver. It was somewhat sour and improved slightly with some stevia mixed in.
This is the Sea Salt Caramel flavor. Unlike the Brownie Batter and Mixed Berry flavors, this one has only 90 calories and no fat. It also boasts 14 grams of protein, two grams more than the others I have reviewed. The flavor doesn't actually taste like sea salt caramel, but rather somewhat like butterscotch. It is not too sweet and doesn't have a sour aftertaste. This one could be a nice, light dessert.
Here is the Mixed Berry flavor. The light purple color is indicative of the berry flavor. This was a very tasty flavor, with small bits of raspberry throughout. Not too sweet or too sour. The texture was rich and satisfying. I tried this for breakfast and it kept me satiated most of the morning.
I love the idea of a no sugar added, no artificially sweetened, high protein yogurt. There are similar products on the market (Oikos Triple Zero, for example) and for those who don't like the taste or consistency of Greek yogurt, Elli Quark offers a very good alternative. I purchased these on sale at Publix for $1.00 each. They are usually priced at $1.67 or 3 for $5.00. I did not sample or review the Vanilla Bean or Strawberry flavors, both also available at Publix.
What are your opinions of Elli Quark? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
