    Finding "full fat" Greek yogurt

    Primal Fuel
    I've been having trouble finding both full or partial fat greek yogurt. The brand I generally eat, Chobani is fat free and has 7 grams of carbs ... The one higher fat one I've found has 12 grams of carbs; which is a bit more than I want
    Is just adding some fat (like walnuts) ok with the fat free GY or should I be looking for a particular brand. Other than a Whole Foods I don't have any natural groceries near by .

    Personally I like the Fage brand. Their full fat version is awesome. Sadly I can't get it anywhere within an hour's drive. Greek God's is okay in a pinch but not as good as the Fage. I'd check to see if WF carries the Fage.

    I buy either Fage (2% fat is the most fat I can find) or Eros brand at WF.
    In this non fat culture it is very difficult to find full fat yogurt.

    Astro and a few other producers do a 3% fat plain yogurt that subs nicely for greek yogurt if you strain it.

    Of the 4 grocery stores in my town, only one was carrying the Fage full fat yogurt- but now they stopped. I think I was the only one buying it. Now I make a monthly run to trader joes and get there brand of full fat greek yogurt - not as good as Fage, but still tasty and less expensive too.

    Hello
    I can't find a decent full fat greek yogurt here either so I just buy the most natural full fat yogurt I can find and strain it.

    I can get Fage total with honey. It's good, because the honey is kept separate from the yogurt, so you can choose whether or not to eat the honey.

    It's not "greek" style, but the best yogurt I've found in the sea of non-fat, sugar-filled dairy products is Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Plain Yogurt. It does have 12 carbs, but no added sugar, and I'm not sure how accurate this statement is but I've been told to ignore carb content of yogurt (without sugar added) because that's measured before the fermentation process and the bacteria eat most of that sugar. - Stonyfield Farm
