#MullerQuaker

Over the last year since having my own apartment I have been on a quest to try all the different brands of Greek Yogurt out there! Before I began this “journey” I was only buying Chobani.  I love the company and what they try to stand for.  I like helping out a “local” company from NY, even though now they have become a household name around the country.  I love that Greek Yogurt lasts longer than regular yogurt, has more protein and is so much creamier.  But who really does have the best flavor, texture, variety, etc of Greek Yogurt.  Everyone’s tastes are going to be different.  My boyfriend used to say he didn’t like Greek Yogurt; however, I have gotten him to like the Creamy Wegman’s Greek Yogurt.

Here is my top 2 brands of Greek Yogurt to date (in no particular order):

  • Oikos
    • But not the Fruit on the Bottom Variety but that is because I don’t really like fruit on the bottom yogurt in general.
    • I love the Cafe Latte Flavor and the Lemon Meringue!
  • Chobani
    • I use to not want to but the 2% but in the scheme of things that really doesn’t make a huge difference!
    • I love the blood orange and the chocolate chip flavors (only available in the chobani champions or the larger tub)!

As a special treat to myself because they are a little more expensive than I would like to spend on yogurt, I will buy:

  • Yopa
  • Powerful Yogurt
    • The option has extra protein on top of the extra protein Greek Yogurt already has in it!

I am not a huge fan of the following popular brands of yogurt:

  • Fage
  • Yoplait Greek 100 Calories
    • I just find it not as creamy as other brands and tastes almost watered down.

So when I received a coupon for Muller Quaker yogurt as part of my #GoVoxBox, naturally I was driven to try the Greek variety.  I have tried a few of the flavors of Muller Quaker before.  When Chobani released their version of the corner I had to compare.  But this time I went for the apricot variety in the greek corner.  The flavor is really called Honeyed Apricot Greek Corner.  I really liked it! I will be adding Muller to top three brands of Greek Yogurt and will be buying more in the future.

I want to add the only product that I did receive for testing was Muller Quaker, the other brands are not a part of this Vox Box that I received through Influenster.

#GoVoxBox

Finally it is here!  I was very excited to receive my #GoVoxBox from Influenster.  This was something that completely interested me because of its health related nature.  As I am about to start training for my half marathon I was excited to be picked to be a part of this program.  There were a lot of health products associated with the box which was really nice to see.  It was also crazy because it was like this box was made for me and my terrible athletic feet and love of baths and smoothies.

tamponsOn a side note, when you sign up for Influenster you are allowed to pick five expert badges which are based on your interests.  You are limited with these because no one can be an expert at everything so Influenster wants to help you focus on what you actually know.  One of my expert badges is called the Six Pack Badge which has to do with health and wellness.  

Like the #UniVoxBox this box had the new Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons.  This was awesome because as any girl knows, you can always use more tampons and when they are FREE….even better.  I love the Playtex Sport Brand so I was definitely excited to get another box of them.  You can see my post Play It On for more information regarding the Playtex brand.

mueller almondsThe next product in the box was Blueberry Almonds by Blue Diamond!  I am a fan of almonds especially for snacking at work or in class.  The Blue Diamond brand has created a really awesome product.  Who would have thought almonds could be blueberry flavored?  These were really unique and I have never really tasted anything like it.  When you think of cocoa dusted almonds, this is a similar product just with a blueberry dusting.  I am excited to try the other varieties of this spinoff of cocoa almonds; however, as a girl and a chocolate lover, I think the cocoa dusted almonds may always been #1 in my heart.

muller greek yogurtAnother awesome part about Influenster that I really enjoy and this was my first experience with it – is that not all products come in the box, some you have to go to the store and pick out yourself.  This was the case with Muller yogurt.  I like this concept because it means that products that could spoil are not ruled out from boxes.  When I went to the store there were several different kinds to try out.  I like to try all the different brand’s versions of Greek yogurt so I went with the Muller Greek Yogurt Corner.  I selected the Honeyed Apricot because it sounded unique.  It was delicious and creamy.  I think I like this version of apricot better than the Chobani version of apricot.

orthodicTwo products in the box were from Profoot Care.  There was a set of orthodics and a pedicure rock.  The orthodics were a little small for my feet I found, but will work nicely as a back up set.  I have extremely high arches so I have worn custom orthodics in my basketball shoes all throughout college.  Obviously something that comes in a box is not going to be as customized to me but they are definitely a nice backup but I would not use them if I was to go run long distances or play basketball.

The second item, the pedi rock – is awesome!  My teammates used to joke that I had the grossest feet on the team!  Honestly I do because during season I am not worried about getting pedicures because they will get ruined after one practice, why waste the money. The rock would have been awesome to have after a long practice! I really enjoy it and am looking forward to my boyfriend not saying, “I have the best feet in the relationship”, because now I will.pedi rock

aqua spa body lotionThis box was so full it was exciting to go through and find out what variety of the products you got.  When it came to Aqua Spa, I received the Lavender + Chamomile body lotion.  It smells amazing.  I like using it after a long post-workout showers or baths.  I think I will end up using the lotion in the evenings more because the scent tends to make me sleepy.

next step shakerFinally the last company that was included in this Vox Box was Vitamin Shoppe.  They included 3 of their new meal replacement shakes and a shaker bottle to make them in.  So far I have only tried the chocolate version and found it very rich when prepared as the package directions say with water but found it much more enjoyable with soy milk.  next step shakeNow I am not trying to use it as a weight loss tool so that helps me have more flexibility on how I prepare the shakes.  I really do like the shaker bottle.  It is really easy to clean and use and the lid does not stick shut like some blender bottles I have had.  When I try the next two shakes I plan to make one with soy milk and the other into a smoothie!

So I have been apart of Influenster since the very end of January and I have already received 3 boxes.  I can’t wait to receive another Vox Box from Influenster in the future because the last three have been so good! I do not know why anyone wouldn’t want to be a part of this awesome service.  Who wouldn’t want to sign-up, receive free products that are customized to them and then give the companies their feedback?  What is great is you feel like the companies are actually listening to you and you are helping them improve their products!
