  • Greek yogurt ?

    Yogurt has not been a regular part of my diet but with all the raves about Greek yogurt I tried some. It was pretty good. Then I read that Geek yogurt made from whole milk is much creamer and richer tasting than the 0% stuff my wife brought home. I decided we should compare the two. However, we looked high and low for some made with whole milk and could not find any. Today we found some made from 2% at a recently opened World Foods supermarket. I have not tried it yet but does anybody actually make and sell whole milk Greek yogurt? Or are those of us without cholesterol and weight problems being discriminated against? lol

    This stuff is so good. Full milk fat. I've seen it at Walmart.

        Nancy's makes one too. Nancy's products are available at Whole Foods. If it isn't on the shelf, maybe they will order it for you.

        All the best,

              Generally, Greek yogurt has TWICE the protein content per volume of regular yogurt. Great for those trying to heal up skin problems.

                Bug your store manager. The fat phobia has caused many stores to stop carrying full fat products, but they're out there.

                  Yes, the Greek Gods yogurt is great, Target carries it. We have had it every day these last 3 years instead of salad. I mix it up with blueberries or raspberries once a week. It's much easier to fix and for Jim to get to his mouth than lettuce salads.

                    I do not recall seeing the Nancy brand at our World Foods but my wife and I just about checked every container on the shelves. There were only 0% fat versions at our Kroger, Publix, BiLo, and Piggly Wiggly. I have not thought about Target. We do not normally get groceries there. And Walmart is on my boycott list. I guess I will talk to some of the store managers. At least I now know that it does exist. lol Hmmm. This has me wondering if the whole milk yogurt is totally sold out because it tastes so much better than the 0%.

                      It definitely exists.

                      Have you got any sort of whole food/health food store near you? Our Natural Grocers (formerly Vitamin Cottage) has bazillions of varieties of full fat Greek yogurt (well, maybe not bazillions...).

                        Update

                        I finally found whole milk Greek yogurt at our Publix supermarket. They stock a tiny bit. The manager says everybody is thinking skinny and no-fat these days. I think it is smoother and creamier than the 0% fat versions. However, my big find was Ben and Jerry's frozen Greek yogurt. Heavenly! We are currently working on a pint of rasberry-fudge chunk. Glad my taste buds are not paralyzed!! I can't wait to dig into some peanutbutter-banana.

                              I've tried the Vanilla Honey Caramel, but do not like.
