If you all ever want to kick your yoghurt experience up a notch in awesomeness, you should check out labne (I've also seen it spelled labneh and labna). In any case it is a middle eastern kefir cheese that tastes like greek yoghurt but has a consistency somewhere between sour cream and cream cheese.
I get mine at a little bodega in the not so nice section of town run by middle eastern folks. My Jewish BFF turned me on to it. She is 82 and from Vienna and she says she was raised on that stuff.

Does anyone make their own yogurt? I started a while back by getting a small container of full fat organic yogurt and using organic whole milk for my yogurt. It's tastier than anything I've ever had from the store. It's creamy and luscious. Plus you can strain it and reserve the whey to make lacto-fermented things like sauerkraut! It's not very difficult and it's wildly cost effective.

Tesco in the UK carries an excellent creme fraiche - basically natural yoghurt made with thick cream instead of milk.
Full fat Greek yoghurt is about 10% fat and natural is about 5% fat (at least the stuff I see is)
Though "cup" is a standard volume measure, I would not trust it has not been used as a 'loose term' by the marketing people of each company (different sized cups).
I never look at serving size etc, in Aus they also list 100g nutrient info (eg 9.8g of fat is 9.8% fat).
