Call us proud parents if you want, because everyone here at Chobani is excited to offer you our Chobani Champions® yogurt made just for kids.
The idea for Chobani Champions® sprouted during a beautiful day of fun at the Great Children’s Read, an awesome kids event held annually in New York City.
During the event, a CHO team member, Buddy Dean, fondly referred to the kids stopping by our booth as “Champs.”
“Here you go Champ,” Buddy Dean would say, “Try some Chobani. You’re going to love it!”
As the day wore on, it was clear that kids loved Chobani’s thick, creamy texture. So right then and there we decided we needed to make a Greek yogurt especially for kids. We knew it had to have the same great, creamy Chobani taste so that kids would like it, and protein and calcium so that parents would approve, too.
Hence the birth of Chobani Champions®, beloved offspring of Chobani Greek yogurt.
Since then, we’ve worked tirelessly on Chobani Champions® until it was perfect. That’s because we wouldn’t dare serve it to your kids, until it was good enough for our kids.
How is Chobani Champions® Made?
- We receive raw milk from local farms and separate it into skim and cream. Then we pasteurize the skim milk and add yogurt cultures.
- We wait for the milk to convert into yogurt before straining out the whey to make it Greek yogurt. Next, we add the fruit!
- Then we package the product and let it cool. Finally, we test the product for quality standards before shipping it to stores. Enjoy!
