So that means blow jobs are around the corner right?

How do they plan to burn the yogurt?

Too late.

Others have done that already.

Besides, it's Dannon, which means it'll have a good amount of corn starch in it as filler and "too improve mouthfeel".

Just give me whole milk + the yogurt bacteria, maybe a little sugar and vanilla flavor, and I'm a happy camper.

They can't ruin your experience if you don't patronize them.

True, but they don't make you order it in funny sizes like Venti and Alto.

Knowing Starbucks, it will come in a 2-liter plastic bucket covered in whip cream and chocolate.

Don't ask me.  I've been to Starbucks exactly once.  I got a lousy espresso that I had to order using funny words.  I don't get it.

Wall_of_Doodoo: Yougurt is gross. Or at least it is from what I've heard. You see, I have a penis and don't eat sissy chick garbage food.


You mean to tell me you don't like bacon bourbon yogurt?

And you call yourself a manly man.

Seriously. You're a coffee company, maybe figure out the difference between using warm water to brew your coffee and using scalding hot water to brew your coffee.

Yogurt, especially home made greek yogurt is pretty awesome stuff.

I would buy a reasonably priced whole fat, nothing but yogurt or yogurt and some blueberries/raspeberries/strawberries.

But if Starbucks is planning on adding sugar and granola to it, they can keep it, it's just candy at that point.

I eat Tillamook brand yogurt and have never tried Greek style. Is it any good? I know it is thicker.

Meh. Starbucks is at least better than Community Coffee.

wiseolddude: I eat Tillamook brand yogurt and have never tried Greek style. Is it any good? I know it is thicker.


Greek Yogurt is strained of much of the water (and whey) so it loses about half its volume, that is strain 32 oz of regular yogurt and you get 16 ounces of greek yogurt.  Because it is strained of water, it is much thicker and makes for terrific yogurt dips like tsatsiki. You can "slice" it with a knife and it will retain the "sharp" edges and not slump.

It tastes pretty much identical to whatever (unsweetened) yogurt it came from, so that varies from manufacturer to manufacturer depending on age, composition, health of the underlying bacteria strains.

Strained of whey, which is yellow/greenish in color, it is much whiter than regular yogurt, looks more like a stiff cream or sour cream. And strained of whey it is much higher, ounce for ounce, in protein and fat.

Water temperature has nothing to do with it -- you use burnt beans, you get coffee that tastes like charcoal.

The first co-created product will be a ready-to-eat Greek yogurt parfait...

Oh, yay. more large quantities of highly toxic byproduct that nobody knows what to do with!

I was once at a rest stop where my coffee options were Starbucks or Sanka.

So I went with a bottle of caffeine pills.

That sounds as manly as a strawberry daiquiri.
