Dietitians Visit Chobani SOHO
I was recently invited to an event to get to know Chobani’s first store in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. Eager to see what this Mediterranean yogurt bar had to offer, I excitedly accepted. The store has a bright and beautiful storefront on the corner or Prince and West Broadway, so open that you can read the menu from across the street and see directly into the glass-partitioned kitchen where the “creations” are artfully crafted to order. You can select between protein-rich 0% plain yogurt and 2% plain yogurt for your order. The creations have been carefully selected to have delicious and complimentary flavors so they discourage customizing or substituting ingredients except in the case of allergy or intolerance. Trust me, you don’t want to mess with the combinations—they are so well matched. If there is an ingredient that you’re not typically a fan of, I suggest still trying whichever creation speaks to you because you may find that ingredient is transformed once it’s part of the whole. Part of what makes them so delicious is the high-quality, fresh ingredients. It’s not just any honey or any olive oil (yes, I said olive oil). They are carefully selected for their flavor and quality. Fall in love with one of the ingredients? Chobani SOHO sells many of the ingredients they use in their store. They also sell bottles of “Water for Water” where 100% of its net proceeds go to funding clean drinking water through the Shepherd’s Gift Foundation. I really enjoyed all of the different creations and depending on my mood, I would probably get any of them again. One of my favorites was fig + walnut. I even recreated it the next day with fresh figs, walnuts and honey. Thank you to Chobani for a fun and delicious evening. If you ever have the chance, check it out!
