I always like attending events where itâ€™s informational and fun. Today I had the opportunity to attend The Stop & Shop Dannon Yogurt Tiramisu Event. It was educational and informative (at the Stop & Shop Stoneham location), plus I got to sample the limited edition, three month special Dannon yogurt flavor Tiramisu.
I participated in an Event and Blogger Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dannon. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All views and opinions are my own, and do not necessarily represent those of Dannon.
Weâ€™ve all been thereâ€¦deciding what better for you foods to choose from (and if you are on the path of losing weight it can be even tricker) This NEW DannonÂ® Light & FitÂ® TiramisuÂ Flavored Greek nonfat yogurt is a deliciously satisfying alternative.

Stop & Shop and Dannon actually had a contest for anyone to come up with a new flavor and one local woman won the contest – great idea and great flavor!
The event started by having us meet Stop & Shop nutritionist Julie Hersey (yes they have their in-house nutritionist â€“ ask her any question you like â€“ (go to stopandshop.com for contact information)
She agreed as busy moms it can be challenging and difficult to choose better for you foods and sticking to a weight management plan while avoiding maybe some of your favorite treats is always a daily challenge. Some of the tips she suggested include the following:
â€¢ Remember fiber and protein keeps you full â€“ foods that absorb slowly like berries are great
â€¢ Mix up those berries each week â€“ raspberries, blueberries, etc.
â€¢ As she walked through the store she showed us some of the new exotic fruits and veggies Stop & Shop now has â€“ try them out to offer your and your family a daily variety and to mix it up.
â€¢ Remember veggies can be fresh, frozen, canned or dried! They are still good for you no matter how they come!
â€¢ Try nuts for that snacking you crave and again think varietyâ€¦..I picked up some pumpkin seeds today.
â€¢ You can get calcium from veggies in the form of dark greens â€“ kale is popular now but try the baby kale as itâ€™s less bitter.
â€¢ And of course speaking of calcium, yogurt is great for you too. We got to sample the DannonÂ® Light & FitÂ® Tiramisu Flavored Greek nonfat yogurt and I have to say it can be a deliciously satisfying alternative for desert â€“ yes desert. It had that sweet, satisfying flavor and if you freeze it, why that can be your frozen summer favorite desert!
Actually, Tiramisu is a Boston Favorite! The perfect flavor – sweet and now it’s the flavor to try in yogurt. Check out these details:
