Big yum comes in small packages

Some of you know that I am currently on a weight loss challenge with some friends, and the cornerstone of my new diet plan is More Protein, Less Fat. (Yes, that’s revolutionary. I should totally start my own diet program with that keen insight, don’t you think?) I’ve been on the plan for five weeks and hands down my favorite new “power” food is Greek yogurt. It’s thick and delicious, easy to get in either low-fat or fat-free varieties, and loaded with protein.

So when the nice folks doing PR for Chobani contacted me to see if we’d like to try their brand new Chobani Champions—4 oz. kid-friendly flavors of their yummy yogurt—I couldn’t say yes fast enough. My refrigerator is always full of Chobani cups, but for the most part I hunch over them and hiss “My preshuuuuuuus!” whenever the kids get near them. Ahem. Anyway, they sent us a 4-pack sampler and the kids inhaled them. (Leaving me to hog all of the fat-free adult-sized pomegranate yogurts to myself.)

I think they were a little alarmed by my passionate thanks (“We love Chobani so much! May I please have your babies?”), and so to get me off their backs they’ve offered up some more yogurt for me to share with you, lovely readers.

Five lucky Want Not readers will each receive eight Chobani Champions, two each of verryberry, honeynana, strawnana and chocolate. (It probably goes without saying that my daughter declared the chocolate the best, but I think it’s very telling that my son’s pick was the honeynana. This stuff is amazing.)

Want to win ’em? Of course you do! To enter this contest, first go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, February 8th, 2010 to be in the running. Winners to be determined by random number generation and general awesomeness.
