Honestly, I can really only get behind Fage 0% and Labdna. (Which is Middle Eastern yogurt, but give it a try! Its a crazy amount thicker than Fage though, so watch out!)

And, of course you can make your own yogurt too! Just strain the stuff overnight with cheesecloth.

I love the thick yogurt now, but completely hated it at first. I had to slowly work my way into it with the heavily flavored and sugared versions. Now I get the plain and mix in my own honey, berries, granola, cocoa powder, etc.

I made my own yogurt and kefir (from grains found after much search through a co-op) for a couple of years following the pure, unprocessed, raw crowd. Used Alton Brown's method, and a few others. I always needed to use whole milk, hence the calorie count was significantly higher than Fage or Trader Joe's. I also could not get it as thick consistently, and there was alot of wastage with the whey. I couldn't cook with the whey fast enough.

So I was very glad to find 80 cal yogurt which is delish and full of the healthy microbes at a fair price.

i really like the oikos brand, the vanilla and chocolate at the bottom ones are fantastic in place of dessert. for breakfast i usually eat the regular nonfat versions with berries and chopped almonds. (it's still just as good as dessert!)

I have tried a few different brands, mixed them with fruit and I still just cannot get myself to like it. It's too thick and...gross to me

I've only tried Siggi and Stonyfiled so far. I had to blender it with fruit into a smooth to get over it.

I like that it's got more protein, but I don't like the texture. Too...gloppy.

That's a big no way for me too. I have tried fage, chobani, and another brand, various flavors (my sis loves the stuff) I just can't do it.
After my HS Biology teacher made a batch in the classroom, I was never the same. I can do some yoplait light, but only on rare, rare occasions.

Wow...this really surprises me b/c I have a HUGE texture problem and, up until now, have only been able to eat yogurt it it's frozen or whipped.

I like it a lot, but I can't afford it. Too expensive around here...

Different people like different brands. The first I ever tried was Fage, and I thought it tasted like sour cream and had the consistency of Elmer's glue. I couldn't find anything nastier to eat. But other people love it! But then I tried Chobani and ended up really liking it. You just have to experiment.

I prefer the Greek Gods brand over the Fage, but either is fine. I buy the non-fat plain in a big tub. I substitute it for sour cream--yummers. I also like it with fruit and stevia--double yummers!

I do the exact same thing! It tastes wonderful and Fage has a great texture.
