Celebrate Your Everyday Moments with YOPA! {Giveaway - CAN only}



Sometimes we need to take time out to celebrate the everyday simple moments.  Moments that deserve a little OPA!  Those little everyday accomplishments sometimes get left behind during our busy schedules.  There are many times with my boys when accomplishing something small feels like a huge success.  Things like getting Bilal to hold my hand when we are outside or getting Hasan to do his homework without a fuss.  Moments like these deserve a little OPA!

Yoplait has a new product called YOPA! which is a flavoured stirred Greek yogurt that comes in 5 different flavours.  A guilt free treat to celebrate those everyday moments you wish to cherish.  YOPA! has 0% fat, double the protein of regular yogurt, no gelatin or artificial colours/flavours.  It is only 80 calories as well!

I loved that these yogurts are gelatin free.  Lately it seems that the majority of yogurts with 0% fat have gelatin mixed in.  Also having the yogurt and fruit already mixed together makes it easier for my boys to eat on their own.  Just hand it over with a spoon and they can do the rest themselves.

We had the chance to try Mmmm! Mango Tango.  I loved the creaminess of the yogurt.  Other 0% Fat Greek Yogurts I have tried in the past had a grainy texture which I didn't like.  The flavour was great and loved the bits of fruit in it but wished there was more.  This would also have been great with some homemade granola on top!

The day I opened up YOPA! Bilal had gotten in trouble and he was not to have any dessert that day.  I had him try YOPA! and he loved it.  Before bedtime he was saying how tomorrow he is going to have yogurt for dessert again...looks like he thought he had dessert when he first tried YOPA!

To help you add a little OPA! to your everyday moments Yoplait is going to give one Chocolate & Chillies reader a YOPA! prize pack valued at $100!  This giveaway is open to Canadian residents only.  Winner must answer a mathematical skill testing question prior to claiming prize.  You may enter similar giveaways on multiple blogs but can win only one prize pack.  Giveaway ends on October 20, 2013.

Please note that I do not know the contents of the prize pack so cannot guarantee that all the items will be Halal.  Please read the ingredients prior to consuming.

You can also join in the Twitter party hosted by Nia Vardalos on Septemeber 24, 2013 at 8 pm using the hashtag #OpaYopa and also have the chance to win one of six Kitchen Aid 5-Speed Blenders!
