Wisconsin’s Parthenon Gyros Guilt-Free Snack, Yogurt Chips

February 27, 2021

MADISON, WI – How great is this? You can have potato chips that aren't bad for you. They are the Yips Yogurt Chips – made with Greek yogurt – now available at Parthenon Gyros in Madison, Wisconsin, which brought gyros to the state in 1972.

“Imagine a bowl of Greek yogurt with all your favorite toppings, all packed into a chip,” Erin Vranas, co-owner of Parthenon and Yips founder told The Cap Times. Or, as she puts it, "head Yipster." “It's a sweet, crunchy, guilt-free snack.”

Vranas owns Parthenon with husband Dimitri Vranas, whose family has run the restaurant for three generations. Vranas and her husband bought the restaurant from Dimitri’s parents in 2017.

Yips Chips are a new brand of dehydrated yogurt chips from Erin Vranas, co-owner of Parthenon Gyros. They are currently available in two flavors: superberry chocolate and almond butter banana chocolate.

“We're really good at Greek yogurt and, not to toot my horn, but I make really good Greek yogurt bowls, which is where the idea for Yips came from,” said Vranas.

“I really wanted a healthy snack to get me through,” she said. Yum Yum Yip.


After running Sebastian's Greek Restaurant in Cincinnati for 46 years, selling more gyros than he can count, Alex Vassilou has sold it to a friend, restaurateur Adel Samaan, with a promise.
