Dan-o-nino Cups (a giveaway)

    • This is a sponsored post. All thoughts are true and my own. 

    For weeks Audrey had been asking, "mami, can you buy me damolilo?"

I (usually very good at translating Audrey talk) had no idea what she was talking about. After several times trying to figure out exactly what she was saying, I had just given up and said yes without having a clue what she wanted. 

So, days later, I get an email asking if I'd like to review a new children's yogurt. I agree knowing Audrey will like a special treat like this... the two of us walk the grocery store, head over to the dairy area and pick up the new treat...Audrey squeals with excitement, "damolilo, damolilo!"

"Damolilo" is Dan-o-nino!


This is a major moment for me and I'm feeling like I just one the lottery. I finally know what she has been saying all this time. 

At the same time, Audrey is probably feeling like she won the lottery, she just got some "damolilo"

(talk about perfect timing for  a review)

So... the yummy yogurt cups... she had tasted at her sitters house and obviously wanted some more.

She likes them. Her favorite flavors are vanilla and banana. 

They are the perfect serving size for her, which means I don't have to worry about wasting any leftovers and they have no artificial colors, flavors, or high-fructose corn syrup (I like this)


They are a bit thicker then your average yogurt, tastes a bit like full fat yogurt, not overly sweet and from what I have read is actually a French cheese. Yum! Very rich and satisfying. Can you tell I tried also?

Stick a popsicle stick right in the middle, then stick in the freezer and it makes a perfect after dinner dessert or special treat. 


Or eat with a spoon ( :

I'm a big promoter of giving kids fruit or veggie slices for snacks but I also know that we all deserve something special sometimes, and so "damolilo" will be a purchase I make again.

So great that you figured out what she was talking about; I bet that was a happy moment in the store. This stuff sounds YUMMY; I'm going to get some for my kids to try! I'll keep you posted. Love these pics of Audrey too. xoxo

This sounds a lot like some of the yogurt they have in Spain. I can't remember the name, but it is something like "Danones" and it is thick, too.

I'm ALWAYS looking for pudding-like desserts - without all the sugar. We often buy the baby jars of fruit (banana, apricot) so they can have a healthy dessert.

Thanks you!

OMG that was too cute!! Both of you won the lottery thanks to Danonino. I love your idea of sticking a popsicle stick and freeze it to make it the perfect after dinner dessert or special treat. DD would enjoy that and mama too. I also love that doesn't have all the junk that most kid's yogurts and/or treats have. Super!

Such a cute story! Glad Audrey and her "damolilo" were reunited in the end! I remember trying new foods and not being able to find them again until adulthood because I didn't know what they were called, but it looks like Aubrey's luck is pretty good so far!
