I tried Greek yogurt for the first time a few weeks ago...what a difference! It tasted nothing like the over processed plastic tasting stuff that's normally in the market..so rich and creamy!

      This is what I'm addicted to: put yogurt in tupperware container, put some frozen unsweetened mixed berries on top, sprinkle some Splenda on top and let it sit overnight in the Frig. I buy the 0% fat or the 2% fat, so its a pretty healthy and quick breakfast. I usually take it to go to work. Yum! I will never go back to the other brands.


      My "dish" is similar. In the morning as I'm packing my lunch, I take some canned fruit in Splenda-water (either peaches or pears cut up, or fruit cocktail), quarter 3 fresh strawberries on top, and top it with two large dollops of fat free Fage in a plastic container. The Splenda-water is just enough to cut the sourness of the yogurt. I have this at 4pm. Fabulous.

      The Common Market in Frederick, Maryland, has begun stocking the fruit-cup-on-the-side version of Fage, with peach! Mr. Jennie adores these. He has this (or the cherry or strawberry version) for dessert every night before bed.

      Wow! That's a real bargain. By the way, the Super Fresh near us carries Fage brand tsatziki now, too!

      By the way, when I was in Hungary a couple of years ago I tried to find Fage and couldn't, but I knew the Hungarians took their dairy (particularly sour cream) very seriously, so I knew I'd find something. I found a section of the dairy case filled with products clearly labeled "Dannon." I chose one with no fruit pictures on it, and bought a can of pears. It was amaaaaaazing!! Even (dare I say it) better than Fage. Sooo creamy and rich. Almost buttery, even. The best yogurt I ever had.

        I just had one of the cherry Fage yogurts for breakfast this morning - OMG, it was -sinfully- delicious! Yes, it really did taste that good - like a dessert, believe it. It was the total version; I haven't tried the 2% of this yet. I've also tried Trader Joe's brand of Greek yogurt and found it very good.

          hey! I just tried a fage smoothie the other day. I happned to go to Sun Harvest...a little healthfood-type grocery and grabbed a cup of the 2 percent Fage. It was very thick...but since I'm not a fan AT ALL of plain yogurt it was very sour! i tried it with milk and frozen berries and half a banana, and well.....i guess i'm just a sugar nut because it was still too sour. But my two year old son liked it and drank it all! I actually bought the yogurt because I had a recipe for something that called for it, but when i went through my files i couldn't find it and for the life of me, cannot recall what it was for! pancakes? smoothie? I can't remember. Oh well. Oh and i did also see Bulgarian style yogurt but it was a little too pricey.

            Question - Is Greek yogurt the same as Arabic Labneh ?

              I wonder if homemade whole-milk yogurt would be comparable in taste to the Greek Fage yogurt ?

                I used Fage for my starter for my home made yogurt and found mine pretty much the same in taste but it was just a tad thinner.

                    If you're talking about the Total Fage brand for Greek, I've found labneh to be a bit more sour. But it probably depends on what brand you're buying too, because some yogurts labeled "Greek" are milder tasting than others.
