    I have never seen any of their yogurt worth eating. Yet, if they made a full fat plain version it might be okay. I've found Fage to be the best with Greek God second (but a distant second). I have never found any other brand in full fat in my town, though I am sure they exist. Sadly, no one in town carries teh full fat any more so I don't bother with it.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Most of the commercial Greek yogurt available here is low-fat imitation stuff--it has milk protein added back in to bump it up and thickeners to make it creamy.

    yoplait is a joke all around. Spring for full fat Fage. You will never even give yoplait (or most other brands) a second glance. Good yogurt should only have a couple of ingredients (milk, cultures)

    Yoplait's "Greek" yogurt is disgusting. Tried it once. Never again.

    ^ +1. I used to get Chobani (nonfat *shudder*) but have since switched to full-fat Fage. Never going back - it's like heaven on a spoon :P

    Back when I ate greek yogurt I was a big fan of Greek God. It's less expensive than Fage and being a Classics major I geek out the product marketing. Plus - anything to disassociate myself from the whole foods chicks touting it and taking every opportunity to correct others with 'It's actually pronounced 'Fay-Yuh'" /eyeroll

    Greek God is good too but hard to find full fat.

    If I can't find the full fat Fage I will get either the 2% Fage or Chobani and add flax meal or cream to it, depending on if I put protein powder in it or not (cream makes it less thick).

    I saw some yokel call Fage "Fag-ee" once and he seriously thought it was another "liberal conspiracy" to get us all accustomed to having homosexuals become part of normal society. I didn't have the heart to tell him that his mom and dad were probably brother and sister.
