Yogurts

Postby Bwis53 » Mon Sep 20, 2010 8:10 pm

I've really enjoyed the newer Greek yogurts. Fage is nice. Recently I discovered Siggi's, Icelandic style. This one is wonderfully tart, low fat, not too sweet (Agave sweetened), and reminds me of a more solid type kefir. It is rather pricy ($2.99, for 6oz.cup at Sentry). Has anyone else tried this stuff and can you recommend a similar type, only not so expensive?

Stonyfield is a bit cheaper and pretty good. I know Woodman's sells it.

DH is a Greek-style yogurt addict, including the skyr. Try Trader Joe's, they have a greek style that is tasty, as is the old standby, Fage. Chobani also got two thumbs up (and comes in many more flavors). I think Stonyfield has a ton of added sugars, so that might be too sweet for you?

I personally prefer to add my own fixins, so I prefer plain Sugar River whole milk yogurt. Tangy, creamy, yummy.

Sugar River dairy's yogurt is absolutely delicious (I assume it still is; we're unfortunately a thousand miles outside their distribution area).

A couple of years ago, when we were still living in Madison, we got their 24oz lowfat version delivered to our doorstep (along with milk and maybe some other products, I can't remember) via Artisan Foods Delivered. Dunno if AFD is still in business.

Their website now links to a blog, so I guess not.

Sugar River used to be a lot harder to find, but they have it at Jenifer Street, Willy Street (and I would assume they would carry it at Willy West when they open) and Metcalfe's. I think I saw it at Copps, but I can't be sure on that.
