Tasti D-Lite

Ingredients: dairy bases contain water, non-fat milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, guar gum, locust bean gum, carrageenan, lactase and either vanilla or cocoa. Flavor ingredients are not divulged.

Depending on the flavor, one serving—four fluid ounces—contains between 70 and 100 calories, about 11 to 18 grams of sugar, 1 to 3.5 grams of fat, and about 11 to 20 grams of carbs.

Takeaway: The Tart ‘n Tasti flavors tend to have the highest calories, sugar and carbs; the peanut butter flavors tend to have the most fat. Unless you’re celebrating a training milestone or big race finish, avoid the temptation to get a customized combination that includes a Coldstone Creamery-like blend of toppings and flavored syrups mixed with the yogurt. Because Tasti’s base is made from milk, it doesn’t contain live cultures.
