Vardalos to Talk Yopa! with Stroumboulopoulos

Nia-Vardalos-700x350Greek-Canadian/American Nia Vardalos, who celebrates her 51st birthday today (Happy Birthday, Nia!), will sit down to talk Yopa! yogurt this afternoon with another Greek-Canadian, George Stroumboulopoulos.

The “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” star recently became the spokesperson for General Mills Canada’s new product, Yopa! yogurt. A play on the Greek word “opa,” Yopa! is just a month old. The Greek yogurt has stirred-in ingredients, and flavors include Mango Tango, Very Berry, Ooh La La Strawberry Cheesecake, Va-Va Vanilla Bean and Lotta Piña Colada.

“Nia represents the epitome of the positioning of our new brand Yopa! She’s a mainstream Canadian Greek who truly does indulge in the joyful side of Greek,” says Yoplait Canada Marketing Director Tammy Sadinsky Martin.

Vardalos has already started making the rounds to promote Yopa!, including paying a visit to Breakfast Television, where she shared recipes using the yogurt.

For Canadians who happen to be in the area, free tickets are still available for Vardalos’ appearance in the studio with Stroumboulopoulos this afternoon at 3:15pm. If you’re interested in attending, email: [email protected]

    Nina talked about Golden Dawn… What about the 2 criminal gangs from PASOK & New Democracy Parties running this Government of Thieves, Liars & Crooks who created all these problems today? It was PASOK & ND Parties who created Golden Dawn and the Far Left by their corrupt rule and mismanagement of Greece. (Akis Tzahadzopolous from PASOK is just one example of their corruption).

    1.) Why isn’t PASOK’s MP Venizelos in jail for hiding the Legarde List 2
    years in his home?

    2.) Why isn’t PASOK’s Finance MP Papconstantiou in jail for removing his
    relative’s names on the List?

    3.) What about PASOK & ND Partise still owing 250 million Euros to the
    Banks in phony loans they have not paid back yet?

    It seems to me the Gov’t and Press is using Golden Dawn as a
    “distraction” to take attention away from the Massive Crimes these
    two corrupt Parties have committed as well as Treason against the whole Greek
    nation after 37 years of corrupt rule!
