MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The holidays have come and gone, but for many of us, a few pounds remain in the New Year. Your revamped 2011 snack schedule doesn’t have to be filled with boring, flavorless snacks in order to trim your waistline. Yoplait® Fiber One™ 50-calorie yogurt introduces their Blueberry flavor, with bits of real blueberry in each creamy cup. With 50 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat, Yoplait Fiber One is a smart option for health-conscious people looking to get their snack fix with a tasty, guilt-free treat.
Men and women across America think boring snacks are a contributor to the downfall of their dieting success according to a recent survey,¹ and Yoplait Fiber One Blueberry yogurt is one way to spice up boring post-holiday diet routines that many Americans fall into after a season of eating fat and calorie-heavy munchies. The same survey participants agreed that the most important factors when choosing a lower-calorie snack are taste and flavor, and Fiber One Blueberry yogurt is brimming with both.
Lisa Lillien, low-calorie snacking guru and #1 New York Times best-selling author agrees, “After the holidays is a great time to get back on track, but boring snacks can ruin your plan. Try to find lower-calorie options that taste good but are still satisfying. I work with Yoplait Fiber One yogurt –the new flavor, Blueberry, is unbelievable! It has real chunks of blueberry, and with 50 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat, it’s a snacking homerun.”
The new 50-calorie blueberry flavor packs a mighty nonfat punch and can help people who want to increase their fiber intake reclaim taste without the guilt. Yoplait Fiber One yogurt is also available in Strawberry, Vanilla, Peach and Key Lime Pie.
“The new Yoplait Fiber One Blueberry yogurt offers even more options for dieters looking for tasty lower-calorie snacks,” said Joselynne Little, associate marketing manager for Fiber One yogurt. “Fiber One’s new Blueberry flavor comes at a perfect time, when many of us take a look at our post-holiday habits and try to find a variety of zero-guilt snack options.”
