Thanks. That means then that full fat yogurt (can't find any to check around here) should have a lower sugar count?

We have a Trader Joe's, I can check there. I really love Greek yogurt, just was put off by the sugar. Recently reached my goal weight and I'm real skittish about putting anything in my mouth and gaining the weight back. Thanks.

Two other differences of note; Joes does not have Bificus culture (if that is important to you but has the other cultures) and oddly, includes nonfat amongst the Grade A Milk and Cream.
The texture is a little thinner, only slightly, in the Joes version and I'd even say a wee bit zingy-ier in taste than Fage.
It isn't Greek yogurt per se (i.e. not high in protein), but Greek God's full fat plain is by far my favorite yogurt - BY FAR. It's so thick and is great eaten by itself or added to a nice hot soup. Try it out if you get the chance.
Every time I find a full fat Greek yogurt I like the stores stop carrying it. The first was Voskos, then it was Olympus. I like Greek Gods, but none of the stores in my area carry it. I guess with the low fat/no fat craze these days, very few people buy it.
There is neither a WF or TJs close enough to shop at where I am.
Have you tried talking to the purchasing manager at the store that used to carry them to see if he/she could order some for you?

I second this. I bought some for the first time yesterday and I must have used 1 cup of it as a dip for fresh strawberries and mango. Fan-freakin-tastic.
