    I don't care for yogurt but I really like the greek yogurt. Yes it's more expensive but not terribly so.

    I tried the Vanilla flavor and it's just way too tart for me...Maybe a fruity flavor would be better, not sure...

    I love, love love it. Both Oikos and Chobani. The peach and pineapple are great. There is another brand from the natural food store that comes in coconut that is to die for if you're like me and love coconut.

    I love Chobani yogurt. I have to buy the kind with fruit-love mango, pineapple and pomegranate. It does have a little more sugar and is more expensive. I feel so much better when I eat it though so I think it's worth it. Enjoy!

    Greek yogurt is very creamy but does have a tart after taste. If you like unflavored regular yogurt you'd probably love greek yogurt.

    And the different brands do taste different. I tasted some at Trader Joes, then bought Chobani at Costco and it doesn't taste the same.

    But I may be comparing apples to oranges because the Chobani I bought was 0% fat and TJ's was I think 2% fat. Fat does make everything taste so much better. That's why I'm so fluffy.

    I really like it, too. But, it's about triple the price of the regular brand I normally buy. it does have double the amount of protein, though. And, I like it better for cooking because it's thicker.

    I tried it but I didn't like the texture and had a "wang" to it. I'll stick to my Yoplait!

    I love, love, love the Fage 0% fat plain yogurt. Thick and creamy, sour cream like flavor. I put some fresh berries in it and eat it that way. Yes, it is more expensive than regular. I think I pay $1.79 for a 6oz container.

    It's a little more expensive, but worth it in my opinion. more tangy; By the By, you can make your own greek style yogurt. Easiest way: take plain yogurt, strain using a sheet of paper towel or muslin, in a strainer, over a bowl in the frig, at least 8 hours pour off the liquid and Viola'!
    Or, make yogurt from scratch, way less expensive;
    1 gallon of lowfat milk heated to 180*, then cooled to 110* . Mix 1 cup of the warmed milk with 4 oz of plain ( no flavor, or sugar) yogurt containing active cultures.then mix that into the other milk. cover and kleep warm for 8-12 hrs.I used a heating pad on medium, covered the kettle with a heavy towel to keep the heat in;strain the same as above for desired thickness. this will keep in the frig for up to a week.

    Yes I have tried several different brands of Greek yogurt. Love the flavor and the texture. A little more expensive but worth it.

    I make my own. It's so easy and very cheap. You can buy a yogurt maker in about any dept store but I use my countertop oven. You can use any type of milk you like. I use Flax milk, almond milk, coconut milk, and add powdered milk to add a calcium boost. Milk, yogurt starter (a dab of fresh yogurt will do) that's all you need. Draining the fresh yogurt makes Greek style yogurt. Here is a pic of a quart of fresh yogurt I made at a friend's house to show her how to do it.

    So draining it makes it greek? it's basically thicker? From the way it tastes I thought it was a different culture.

    I don't know anything about yogurt. I find it innteresting when people make food from scratch.

    I like it, too. I use the plain non-fat with equal amount of light mayo and dry ranch dressing mix to make veggie dip/salad dressing. I like my dressing thick. :D

    I make this same recipe too but I thin it down with some water, if you do Weight Watchers this one is really low in points and the best tasting one I have had.

    I think I'm in the minority here. I bought Chobani berry yogurt don't like it at all. I got a 4 pack and 3 are still in the fridge.
