Finding wholesome after-school snacks for the fall season (or any season) that my sons and I both love to enjoy is not an easy task. We are all about flavor, but teenage taste buds are definitely different than my 40-plus ones! Recently, we’ve found some terrific snacks we all agree have just the right amount of taste and fun the we appreciate with Yoplait Greek 100 and Gogurt.

In my experience, teenagers are simply hard to please when it comes to snack time. My boys are constantly changing their mind on what is cool to eat, what tastes good and what they want in an after-school or on-the-go snack. I remember the days when they were little and it was so easy to cut fun shapes out of foods or to purchase something with a favorite character on it to keep them happy and satisfied at snack time.

While they have grown out of the cartoon character stage, the good news is they still love sci-fi and comic book characters, so when I found the Star Wars-themed Gogurt at Walmart, I knew it would be a win on packaging alone!

It’s also a huge win on taste! With flavors like “Cool Cotton Candy,” “Strawberry Smoothie,” and “Burstin’ Melon Berry,” I have no problem peaking their interest in enjoying Gogurt as a go-to snack. When we are super busy with after-school activities, that’s a true blessing to have a quick, easy and tasty snack on hand that totally fits our snacking criteria of fun and delicious.

For me, I need something that fits the same snack needs of fun and delicious, but I also like to have a good-for-me indulgence that doesn’t leave me contending with the guilt of too many calories consumed between meal times. Yoplait Greek 100 and Yoplait Greek 100 Whips are exactly the ticket!

For a burst of fall flavor, the Yoplait Greek 100 Apple Pie and the seasonal edition Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple are both crazy-good afternoon pick-me-ups on a busy autumn day.

Unlike any other snack, Yoplait suits both my sons’ and my snacking needs, which totally makes it a top family favorite!

Side note- As a bonus, I truly love that Yoplait has the “Friends in the Fight” lids program (on participating Yoplait products like Yoplait Greek 100.) This program helps raise funds for cancer research. (You can find out more at:

    Oh shoot!!! That is what I wanted to buy when my Granddaughter came last week. I always try to make sure she has yogurt here. Darn… I forgot.

    The star wars themed yogurt is a concept teenagers would surely love. Yogurt can be a really healthy food alternative.
