Review: Kroger Brand CARBmaster Yogurt - Spiced Pear

Kroger brand CARBmaster Yogurt - Spiced Pear

I found one, just ONE flavor of the newly expanded line of CARBmaster yogurt the other day at Kroger. I am still patiently waiting to find Vanilla Chai and Carrot Cake on the shelves. (they also have some sort of Colada..... I'm not into coconut, so I tend to ignore those flavors) Until then, I am going to give a small review on this little treat. Current price: 3/$1.00.

Spiced Pear...... I have one word for you: YUM!

I found a few little pear morsels in my cup of yogurt. It was creamy, light, and VERY lightly spiced. If you like pears, and vanilla yogurt, then this one's a keeper! I find that the spice was so light, that perhaps a sprinkle of cinnamon next time I have a cup would be in order!

I know I've been talking about the CARBmaster line of yogurt from Kroger for my last few posts, and I figure I should give a little more information about this product.

Kroger rolled out the CARBmaster yogurt line during the big "low-carb" frenzy of the early 2000's. After so many of these products rolled out, and then fizzled out by 2006, this particular line of yogurt, blessedly, has not only NOT been axed, but is flourishing, and has been slowly expanding it's flavor lineup.

I love yogurt, but sugar is NO friend to me! So many yogurts (you know who you are!) label themselves as Fat-free or low-fat. Which, is true. But what they DON'T mention is that they pump it full of sugar. Some have 10, 15, 20 grams of sugar! That's almost as much as a can of cola!

CARBmaster all has around 4g carb. 

I usually have a CARBmaster around 9PM, whether alone, or with some homemade granola mixed in.

I'm so thankful that this yogurt line is thriving! Yeah Kroger!


  1. I too love the Kroger's Carbmaster Spiced Pear Yogurt. However, the Kroger store near me has stopped carrying it. I don't know what I will do, as this is my favorite. Live in Norfolk, VA

  2. Spiced pear is the best of the line to mix with cut apples or other fruit. I haven't seen any spiced pear for months. I hope it comes back.
