Who cares, it's not greek anyway. So save a cpl bucks and buy the Dannon Oikos version of it.

The key lime flavor is delicious.

You're right about the Dannon Oikos key lime. I buy all three brands and like them all for different reasons.

I still feel somewhat odd eating yogurt though. But middle age is coming soon, and a steak for breakfast, lunch and dinner isn't as tenable as it used to be.

I can't say I ever wondered about any of this.. I just assumed that one brand used a different type of culture to make yogurt, called it greek and when it took off, all the other brands piled on with their own version of the same thing to cash in on a fad

I have a yogurt everyday at the office after I eat a bacon and egg sandwich and a donut or two... settles the stomach and makes me feel healthy!

Tillamook yogurt isn't fat free, although 1.5g and 2g (depending) isn't a lot of fat. Lots of carbs from actual sugar (no HFCS) and fruit concentrate, though.

Apropos of nothing, one of my cats loves a Fage box I brought home from Costco one day. Every morning, he puts his paws through the holes, pulls it close, and rubs his face on it to mark it as his. He'll also jump into it and sit down when a thunderstorm upsets him.

Yeah you can add stuff to it like fruit, but there's a recipe for yogurt?
 
2014-04-04 09:59:09 PM  
The consistency is very different, to me at least. I much prefer Fage.

Court threw out her claims on Friday

He's a pretty nice guy. I can't imagine him doing something like that.
She's clearly a total coont.

I can't imagine there are too many ways to curdled milk to make yogurt to begin with.

And it was better without the stevia shiat.

wraith95: I just wish I could find yogurt that isn't fat free in stores.


That's why I like Fage over Chobani.  Stores near me carry the Fage total which has about 8-10g of fat a serving.  Chobani has a 2% but it's not the same.  And every other yogurt company that has jumped into the greek yogurt craze just makes the fat free flavors that are loaded with sugar.  Also, Chobani recently dropped the size of their little containers while Fage didn't so another win for Fage.

I used to eat yogurt every day but then I remembered I didn't have a vagina.

You have to know where to look.  Check Whole Foods/Fresh Grocer if there's one in your area.

I'm frequently able to get Stonybrook Farms whole milk yogurt at my local Acme, but not always.  When they don't have whole milk, they still have lo-fat, which has more fat than their no-fat.

And given the studies suggesting that regular ft dairy isn't bad for you and is actually more filling so you eat less, you'll likely see your options increase in the near future.

It produced like 3 gallons of mostly unusable waste product
Manufacturers are scrambling to find uses for it

I buy the Greek yogurt that's the cheapest...sometimes it's Chobani, sometimes it's Voskos, lately it's been Müller. Fage rarely goes on sale.

Already, you can get the store brand "greek yougurt" all over the USA.  So comparing all the brands, it seems like the store brand is always "on sale" which is illegal in my state, and anyway the other yogurts are "on sale" most of the year which isn't illegal in my state.  It's a big yogurt thing to see which will win.  For me, it's the on that's on sale, and if you're spending more, you're getting screwed.
 
2014-04-05 01:10:55 AM  
Um, since when do they taste the same? I've tried the plain/unsweetend varieties from both companies.  Chobani is more liquid-y and tart with a creamy texture,Fage has a milder taste and a different texture.

Gig103: Tillamook yogurt isn't fat free, although 1.5g and 2g (depending) isn't a lot of fat. Lots of carbs from actual sugar (no HFCS) and fruit concentrate, though.

 Tillamook lowfat is about 170-180 calories per cup.  Brown Cow lowfat is about the same.  Both have added sweeteners (cane sugar and/or honey).


Cascade Fresh lowfat was about 120-150 calories per cup and had no added sugar.  They ended up folding recently due to issues with their production company.  Sadly, my local grocery store replaced all of their Cascade Fresh shelf space with Greek style yogurt instead of another French style yogurt brand.

I bought Müller once, then read the ingredients. I don't want tilapia in my yogurt.
 
2014-04-05 07:14:05 AM  
I only realized recently, thanks to those obnoxious Bobby Flay commercials that Fage is pronounced fayay.

I buy the Safeway brand, because it's cheaper and doesn't have a funny mouthfeel, IMO. I'm sure it's even less authentic Greek yogurt compared to the other brands, but meh.

The only reason that I want a Greek-style yogurt is to make tzatziki sauce for lamb.

I hate that the regular yogurts are getting downsized for the umpteen different brands of "Greek-style" yogurt.  It's really Turkish-style.  In Greece, it's just called yogurt.

Agree.  One of the lamest food trends ever.  Maybe a lot of the people buying it think because it's not so sweet it's much healthier?

I would hate to be an indie grocer.  Every year there's some new shiat you gotta stock 20 brands of and it squeezes out the reliables.  And it NEVER goes away.  Stocking must be a nightmare.

for me it isn't so much about 'healthier' as it is about the ratio of carbs to protein.  the "greek" style yogurts that i buy have a 1:1 ration or much closer to it.  the other kinds were about 2 or 3:1 carbs to protein.

plus the density/firmness is a little better to me.  the whipped stuff is half air and the creamy stuff is more like ranch dressing and honestly feels like it's thinned out.  i find that much less appealing than firm/dense yogurt.

They don't taste the same at all.  I get whichever one is on sale.  I like Chobani the best.  The 2% ones are better than the 0%, but there are only like 4 flavors of those.  Fage has more interesting flavors like the passion fruit ones.

Kosher gelatin is probably from fish sources. Can't be cow or pig if it's in a dairy product. Or something.
