Ice cream is probably my favorite dessert. I’d eat it every day if it weren’t loaded with calories, fat and sugar! Thus, a low-calorie, guilt-free ice cream is pretty much my dream product. Unfortunately it’s awfully difficult to make one without sacrificing too much deliciousness. I was excited yet skeptical when I saw these Yasso Greek Yogurt Bars at Costco. Greek yogurt may not be ice cream, but at 100 calories each, are these bars the perfect way to enjoy the taste of ice cream without the guilt?
Some other frozen treats from Costco that I’ve reviewed are the So Delicious Dairy-Free Salted Caramel Bars, Melona Bars, Keto Skream Bars, Tru Fru Frozen Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Boba Lovers’ Treats Bars, Island Way Sorbet, Traditions Organic Fudge Bars, Poppies Profiteroles and the Nestle Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Location in Store
These are located in the freezer section at Costco, near the other ice cream and popsicles. The item number is 1067005 and I bought it at the Kalispell, Montana Costco.
These bars are so good! Especially if you like mint chocolate ice cream. They’re super creamy, but not heavy and they totally satisfy my sweet tooth without being too sugary.
There’s a strong mint flavor, which I appreciate because sometimes I find lower-calorie desserts are lacking in the flavor department. The chocolate chips add a pleasant crunchy texture and chocolate flavor. The size of the bar is perfect. Sometimes low-calorie desserts cheat a bit by being really small, but this is a normal-sized bar.
The box of 15 yogurt bars costs $11.89 USD, which seems like a pretty standard price for a low-calorie, “healthy-ish” frozen dessert bar.
Each bar is individually wrapped and the bars need to be kept frozen. The box recommends thawing for two minutes before serving. The best-before date listed on the box is 10 months from when I purchased them.
These are convenient if you’re following a low-calorie diet but still enjoy frozen treats in the summer! I love having one on my deck after dinner on hot evenings.
One bar contains 100 calories, two grams of fat, 55 milligrams of sodium, 16 grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fiber, 13 grams of sugar and five grams of protein.
Thirteen grams of sugar isn’t that low, so that’s probably why these bars still manage to taste good despite only having 100 calories! Five grams of protein is pretty good for a frozen dessert bar. The protein is coming from the Greek yogurt in the bars.
I don’t love the ingredients list to be honest. Although these bars are low in calories and marketed as a healthier option, the third ingredient is sugar. I also don’t understand why they’d use “chocolate flavored flake” over real chocolate chips.
The bars contain milk and soy and may contain tree nuts, eggs, peanuts and wheat.
Give them a try!
I love mint chocolate chip ice cream, and if you do too, you’ll probably really enjoy these Greek yogurt bars! I highly recommend that you give them a try if you want a low-calorie frozen-dessert bar. Being low-calorie doesn’t make them healthy though!
