My Review
Thanks to Yoplait and MyBlogSpark, I was given the opportunity to try Yoplus.  They sent me a coupon for a free package of Yoplus, a gift pack, product information, and additional gift pack to give away (more about this below!) 
I tried the Blackberry Pomegranate flavor.  I eat yogurt and fruit for breakfast quite often, as it's an easy meal to have at the office, while working at my desk.  Most of the time I mix some plain yogurt with fruit and a small amount of  honey, and put it in a container to take with me.  The individual serving-sized package of Yoplus was convenient to stash in my bag on my way out the door. 
The flavor of the Yoplus was fruity, although it was a bit sweet for my taste.  The texture was smooth, and I didn't detect any grittiness from the added fiber.  I couldn't even tell it was in there!  Although I'll probably stick with my plain yogurt with fruit most of the time, I may have to keep a stash of Yoplus in the fridge for those days when I'm in a bit of a hurry, and need something I can grab on the go.
