NEW BERLIN, N.Y., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chobani, maker of America's No. 1 selling Greek Yogurt brand, continues to lead innovation in the yogurt aisle with the launch of 14 delicious, trendsetting new flavors. Designed to provide fans with more options for enjoying authentic strained Greek Yogurt, the new, exotic flavors were developed based on a combination of fan requests and an exploration of new exotic ingredients. New flavors are appearing across the portfolio, including 6 oz. cups of Chobani® Greek Yogurt, Chobani Flip™ Greek Yogurt, Chobani Bite™ Greek Yogurt and Chobani Champions® Greek Yogurt Tubes and Cups.
To celebrate the spectrum of new flavors, Chobani will encourage fans to tune into social channels for a Month of Flavor. Consumers can check Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram every day in July to guess #WTFlavor will be featured next. The first consumers to correctly guess the flavor of the day on Instagram and Twitter will be rewarded with a free case of the new assortment.
"Our new products are designed to surprise and delight consumers – welcoming some to Greek Yogurt for the first time through a familiar format like our blended yogurt, challenging the taste buds of others with exotic and trending ingredients like chia seeds and ginger, and servicing new occasions like snacking and mindful treats in order to help expand the category," said John Heath, senior vice president of innovation at Chobani. "We know that the yogurt market in America is just beginning; European consumers eat up to seven and a half times more yogurt per capita. So this launch, and every launch, for Chobani is about giving people new and exciting ways of experiencing our Greek Yogurt."
Chobani FlipTM Greek Yogurt– A dynamic pairing of our authentic strained Greek Yogurt complemented by the finest mix-ins nature has to offer, the newest flavors of Chobani Flip are inspired directly from the unique yogurt creations served at Chobani SoHoSM, the brand's innovative retail store in New York City. Using ingredients such as chia seeds, hemp seeds and pistachios, the four new varieties push the boundaries of yogurt creativity.
- Blueberry Power– Blueberry non-fat Greek Yogurt with chia seeds, hemp seeds and walnuts (a combination inspired by Chobani founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya's daily breakfast)
- Nutty for Nana– Banana low-fat Greek Yogurt with honey roasted salted almonds and dark chocolate
- Peachy Pistachio– Peach low-fat Greek Yogurt with pistachio and dark chocolate
- Tropical Escape– Pineapple coconut low-fat Greek Yogurt with toasted coconut, hazelnut and granola
Chobani BiteTM Greek Yogurt– Two new crave-worthy flavors turn snacking into a mindful indulgence. Featuring elevated flavor combinations of Honey with Ginger and Mint with Dark Chocolate Chips, each convenient 3.5 oz. cup of Chobani Bite contains 100 calories and eight grams of protein for a satisfying, sink-your-teeth-into snack any time of day.
Chobani Champions® Greek Yogurt– Greek Yogurt for kids gets even better with the introduction of three new products to the Chobani Champions line – all of which are made with only natural ingredients and real fruit, and offer a good source of Vitamin D and protein.
- The new Chobani Champions Flyin' Dragon Fruit Greek Yogurt Tubes are a grab-and-go way to feed the imagination and explore new ingredients with kids. The exotic fruit from the cactus family tastes like a refreshing blend of kiwi, pear, watermelon and mango with a decidedly tropical twist. But if you ask a kid, "It's the fruit that dragons eat!"
- In addition, two popular Chobani Champions Tube flavors, Blueberry and Strawberry, are now available in 3.5 oz. cups, giving kids access to a nutritious snack with or without a spoon.
Chobani® Greek Yogurt 6 oz. Cups– Fans inspired the newest additions to the signature 6 oz. Chobani family, each made with our authentic strained Greek Yogurt, real fruit and only natural ingredients.
- Fruit-on-the-bottom– Low-fat Apricot and non-fat Blackberry
- Blended– Low-fat Coconut, low-fat Key Lime and low-fat Orange Vanilla
"Ever since we introduced our authentic strained Greek Yogurt, we've stood by our belief that good yogurt should be simple – just milk and cultures paired with natural ingredients. However, a simply delicious product can also be revolutionary when it comes to unexpected flavors and ingredient combinations," said Hamdi Ulukaya, founder, president and CEO of Chobani. "With these new products, we're continuing our mission to bring nothing but good yogurt to all Americans, making premium, nutritious ingredients like hemp seeds, pistachios and dragon fruit part of the Chobani family. For us, it's all about giving everyone access to real food, regardless of how you like to eat your yogurt."

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
