I like it, but all brands of it at the stores I shop are twice (and sometimes more) the cost of "regular" yogurt. So it's not a frequent purchase.
Isn't greek yogurt just yogurt cheese that hasn't been fully drained?
Save yourself some bucks, buy plain yogurt and drain it overnight in a coffee filter.
Save even more money and make your own yogurt. It is incredibly easy, and way tastier than store bought yogurt.

plain is tough the get down, but probably so is plain regular yogurt. if you put a packet of splenda in it, its makes a huge difference. if you get the flavored greek yogurts theres really no reason to not like them if you like regular yogurt.

greek yogurt is too expensive for me.

I absolutely cannot taste it plain. I have added fruit to it and still can't do it. I bought a pack of them and ended up using them in smoothies. I think it's similar to cottage cheese, either your taste buds will agree or they won't no matter how much you try to eat it IMO.

Could be that in our culture, yogurt tends to be associated with being sweetened such as by adding fruits, rather than for use in savory dishes.

I have tried a couple of different greek yogurts (Dannon being one of them) and thought it was gross. There's a nasty aftertaste I just can't deal with. I wanted it because its higher in protein.

I am a huge fan of Greek yogurt but I dont eat it like people eat the fruit flavored, highly sweet type. I use it in cooking, often as a substitute for sour cream. It is thicker and it has a very rich taste. As said before, it makes fabulous tzatziki. Its on our menu for tonight..lamb burgers, tzatziki made from greek yogurt and tomato and cucumber salad.

i think that greek yogurt is one of the tastiest foods on earth, when you mix it with fresh honey and walnuts.... it just really sets off the flavor.

i will still eat it plain, though. it is good. i usually get the "Fage" brand.

it is funny to me how people love it, or hate it.

I did the same thing for the extra protein. I do think it goes well in the blender for smoothies. I guess using it in recipes is not a bad idea but I wouldn't normally buy greek yogurt.

I like Greek yogurt with honey. I love the thick, creamy texture.
