Greek-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]
