Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt Dip – French Onion

Dannon makes one of my favorite brands of Greek yogurt so when I finally spotted the Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt Dip in French Onion I immediately had to put it into my cart.  I’m a big fan of chips and dip and dips are not the most point friendly type of sides, especially because most dips have a 1 or 2 tablespoon servings and typically are loaded with fat.  Because of that it’s really easy to overeat because it can be one of those types of foods you accidentally overeat while chatting, etc.

One great thing about this product is, the serving size of the Dannon Oikos dips are 2 tablespoons.  2 tablespoons is 1 points plus BUT so is 4 tablespoons!

Now, this is made from Greek yogurt (and if you like Greek yogurt you know that plain Greek yogurt is VERY tart) so you cannot take a bite of this and hope it taste just like a full fat French onion dip.  The French onion flavor is kind of overwhelmed by the tartness of the yogurt, but it is a nice dip to have with chips or carrots.  The French onion flavor is there, but it’s not as bold and in your face as it would normally be because the Greek yogurt is tart and does bring that flavor category down a bit.  Nonetheless it is tasty and a nice treat to have one in a while.

Have you tried any of the new Dannon Oikos Dips?


  1. We used to make onion dip using goat cheese as a base because it was hard to find a good one in stores. The Oikos tastes darn close and I prefer it to any other dip we've tried.

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying it! I'm hoping to branch out and try some of the other flavors.

  2. This sounds amazing! I haven't seen them in the store though : (

  3. i'm just starting. I put some on eggplant (sauted w a little avocado oil) added onion and this gave it a creamy flavor like a fancy sauce. kind of a quick babaganush variation
