Chobani’s latest line, GimmiesTM, will have kids sprinting for the yogurt aisle. Focusing on fun, the four new products will be formatted as milkshakes, traditional cups with mixings on the side, pouches, and tubes. The company hopes that these entertaining ensembles will entice kids and their high protein and low sugar contents will please parents.
Hamdi Ulukaya, Founder and CEO of Chobani, voiced the woes of finding suitable snacks for kids in a recent press release. "Options today are lousy or impractical. It's either junk food that parents don't want their kids to eat or food that's designed for adults that kids don't want to eat.

He continued, “As a parent, you know that food for kids has to be fun, it has to be delicious and most importantly, it has to be nutritious. And parents deserve nutritious options they can feel good about giving their kids."
