So DH and I both like Greek yogurt. So far of all the ones we've tried Chobani is our favorite. He likes the pineapplae and blueberry, and I like to get the plain b/c it's higher in protein, and add a little sugar or a spoon of chocolate syrup to it.

So this week my local store had Greek Gods brand on sale, and I figured I would give them a try. Thank goodness I looked at the nutrition info! For a 6 oz. yogurt, look at these stats:

pomegranate - 230 calories, 17g fat
homey - 250 cal, 15 g fat
fig - 270 cal, 15 g fat
honey strawberry - 310 cal, 15 g fat

The Chobanis we eat are 100-140 calories, and the protein is much better too!

I'm partial to Dannon. It has pretty good nutritional information. But my store only ever has Vanilla when I'm there! The past four weeks in a row they have been out of everything but vanilla. They also had plain, but really, that's sour cream. ;) And I wipe them out of vanilla. Last week I bought my typical vanillas and a pack of the Chobani chocolate and I have been mixing them. I'm a little vanilla-ed out.

Love greek yogurt! and so many brands get carried away with thier flavors and they end up being no better than a regular yogurt.
The best nutritionally I've found is Fage Total 0%. Unlike a lot of people I love plain yogurt haha I love it by itself but also love the versatility.

I love Chiobani, but I've been steering more towards Fage plain, and just add a little lemon crystal light powder and raspberries :)

I like the Chobani and the Fage. I prefer the Fage plain and I add a teaspoon of Agave Nectar to it, mix it in good and it is delicious!

I usually buy the big container of Cabot's at my grocery store for cooking with though because they only carry the small sizes in the Chobani and the Fage. I figure if I am putting it in Curry as plain low-fat Greek Yogurt then I might as well use the big container since it is cheaper by volume.
