I have always liked plain yogurt and vanilla yogurt MUCH more than fruit varieties, whether were talking Greek yogurt or regular.

I really didn't like the Dannon or Yoplait brand (can't remember which one it was). It tasted VERY grainy to me. I get the Fage yogurt at Costco and love it! I love plain yogurt so it's all good.

I have Greek yoghurt for breakfast some mornings, when I don't feel like an egg. I like the yoghurt over some granola and fruit. I have to say I prefer it over regular yoghurt, which I find pretty blah. I can eat a plain Greek yoghurt and enjoy it more than a plain regular yoghurt. I prefer its texture.

Well, I got Yoplait's strawberry Greek yogurt. It was quite good. BUT, I was taken aback when I saw it was 160 calories for 6 oz... there's 0 fat, so I'm flabergasted as to where the calories are coming from. No, I didn't check the calorie count when I bought them. I was just thrilled to find it in my local Kroger @ $1.19 each, I bought 2 to try it.

It's yogurt with more of the whey drained out, so it's a more protein-rich, calorie-rich food, ounce for ounce. A 32 ounce container of Dannon low-fat yogurt makes me about 16 ounces of drained yogurt, which I use instead of sour cream or even cream cheese in recipes, depending on how long I drained it.

I didn't like Greek yogurt right away. But after a couple of tries I developed a taste for it and now prefer it to regular yogurt.

My favorite is Fage honey and Fage cherry - both come with a main section of plain yogurt and a smaller section of honey or cherry to mix in. It's kind of pricey so I tend to get it when it goes on sale.

I love greek yogurt and liked it right away. It is richer, thicker, and creamier than regular yogurt ... and it has more protein. It was recommended to everyone in my post-op nutrition class. Usually I eat it plain. When I feel like having a "sweet" dessert I add a teaspoon or two of sugar-free fruit preserves or jam such as strawberry or orange marmalade to it.Sometimes I add a few sections of ruby red grapefruit (sugar free and unsweetened of course) and the combination sounds awful but it works for me!

I am told you can add sugar free vanilla extract to plain greek yogurt without increasing the calories or carbs like the already flavored varieties.

I don't care for the thickness of the yogurt. I mix it with mayonaisse, when making salads.
