  1. Yeah it took me forever to start paying attention to sugar content. I had no idea my favorite Chobani’s had almost 20 grams of sugar in those little 6oz. cups! I switched to Fage plain and even started buying the grind-it-yourself PB to reduce sugar. That article taught me that donuts contain a lot less sugar than I would have guessed, too. :p

    • I hear you! I did a “no sugar” challenge last month and I hadn’t realised that Chobani’s had so much sugar either! I have replaced the flavoured chobani’s with the plain ones and added in my own mixed berries 🙂 In terms of yoghurts they still have some of the least ingredients compared to other brands which are packed full of preservatives and artificial sweetners etc.
