Wacky Yogurt Flavors With Heat

Does this have anything to do with running? Nope. But yogurt is frequently considered a health food. (or a demon food, depending on which audience you talk to!) So… whatever. Yogurt it is today!

Chobani Chipotle Pineapple yogurt

Saw this on the shelves at the grocery store. The oddity, when compared with the overall dessert-ish vibe of the yogurt section, stood out and I knew I wanted to try it.

Pineapple flavor of yogurt is nice, with little pieces of pineapple interspersed. It was a little thin or watery compared to many Greek yogurts.

Crunchy stuff isn’t sweet. The seeds have a tiny bit of flavor from the granola and the almonds have a subtle smokiness. The heat is there in the granola, but not overpowering. A big spoonful of the granola straight might be too much

Mixed together, it’s just a nice crunch to the yogurt with a hint of heat underneath it all. It’s just enough to sense it but it’s not going to burn out your mouth. I have a fair amount of tolerance for heat and felt this super subtle but if you are sensitive this may burn more. Overall, kind of a pleasant mix!

Sriracha Mango yogurt


I was scared of this yogurt yet really excited to try it. Sriracha ketchup is a fabulous condiment, but I’d never dream of putting sriracha directly in my yogurt.

The yogurt was pleasant, not overly sweet with just a few small pieces of mango. Again, this variety seemed thinner than most Greek yogurts.

All of the crunchy topping stuff was tasty. The sriracha heat was just right. I think I might be tempted to eat it as a snack.


Combining the mango yogurt and the sriracha crunchy things was awesome. Seriously, this was just yummy. The heat was just a faint background burn. Calling it a burn might be too strong, it was just slight intensity. I’d totally buy this again. Oh! Wait… I already have bought it again.

Disclaimer: Because people ask, I bought this with my own money after seeing it on grocery shelves. Nobody prompted me to buy or eat this. I did post a pic on Instagram and had people ask for my feedback on it, so I thought, “Why not write a post? That sounds like something you’d have done before blogging got wacky.”

  1. One of my co-workers and I are on an on-going quest to find more yogurts. We tried the pineapple one. I thought it was okay. I actually liked it more than I thought I would – I don’t normally like chipotle.

    • Find the sriracha one! I liked it even more than the pineapple-chipotle. But like you, I liked them more than I thought I would… which has to be one of the more resounding product endorsements around. “Well, it’s better than I thought!”
