REVIEW: Chobani Flip Pumpkin Harvest Crisp Greek Yogurt

Growing up, I was certain that yogurt was disgusting. Yogurt is a semisolid sourish dairy product produced by bacterial fermentation of milk. Yum…? I would only entertain yogurt if it was infested with candy bars. Even back then, I still hated the yogurt and would just eat the candy I was supposed to dump in. I will remind you now that I was quite the large child.

By the time I moved out Mom and Dad’s house, I had improved my condition to the point where I could physically get myself to the store to purchase my own groceries. The landscape of the yogurt market had changed significantly. Around 2009, Chobani’s greek yogurt was introduced to several major grocery chains. Greek yogurt takes our favorite semisolid sourish dairy product and strains it through a cheesecloth to remove liquid whey and lactose. Yum! Through food science, Greek Yogurt has more protein, less carbs, and less sodium than regular yogurt. Greek yogurt swept the nation in the years that followed, but many consumers still complained that it was too sour.

America, quickly realizing that it was America, wasted no time adding plenty of sugar and delicious treats to our Greek yogurts for mass appeal. The plethora of options is often dizzying. But through this ocean of madness, Chobani Flips were born. Chobani Flips pair Greek yogurt with various crunchy toppings to serve as a more indulgent snack. And indulge we shall!

Chobani Flip Pumpkin Harvest Crisp takes pumpkin low-fat yogurt and adds pie crust pieces, pecans, and glazed pumpkin seeds. Chobani’s Pumpkin Spice Blended yogurt is the best pumpkin yogurt on the pumpkin market in my pumpkin opinion. It uses real pumpkin puree, which may contribute to its exceptional creaminess. It strikes the ideal balance of spice and sweet, favoring cinnamon and nutmeg over excessive sugar. But every fine yogurt breakfast needs some crunch. Instead of healthy granola, let’s just go with actual pieces of pie.

The crust pieces adds some buttery flavor to the overall experience. The pecans add… pecans that fit snugly into this fall flavor profile. The glazed pumpkin seeds are no joke. They wear their glazed coating like a knight wears his body armor – proud and plentiful. I would buy an entire garbage bag of these pumpkin seeds if they sold them separately.

My only minor criticism is that the glazed pumpkin seeds are so uniquely delicious that they sometimes feel separate from the other flavors when your spoon scoops up several. These toppings add flavor, fun, & flare to Chobani’s already-outstanding pumpkin yogurt and create a creamy & crunchy opportunity for alliteration. Chobani Pumpkin Harvest Crisp is flippin’ great.

  1. I’m glad this one is so good! Some of their other mix in yogurts are less successful IMO. But good thing this one is good! I love the fact that they use real pie crust pieces. I feel that the pie crust is very underused whilst trying to execute pie inspired products. I can’t remember the last time I had pumpkin seeds! Have you seen trader joes pumpkin spice pumpkin seeds? May be worth a shot!!

      Not every Chobani Flip is a hit, but most are pretty tasty. I like the Chocolate Coconut and Key Lime Crumble the best, outside of this Harvest Pumpkin Crisp.

      The Trader Joe’s Pumpkin-Spiced Pumpkin Seeds are REALLY good. It’s kind of a “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” deal, but they’re plenty sweet and salty. I highly recommend them.

    I didn’t love this one, but I really like the Salted Caramel Flip.

      Hi Lori. I like the Salted Caramel too. Was there anything in particular you didn’t like about Pumpkin Harvest Crisp? Were your issues more with the yogurt or the toppings?
