Why have I just discovered this gem? Anyone else notice the popularity of this lately? I love the tartness of it especially Chobani. Thoughts?

It's been popular for awhile now, but it was interesting the way the Greek yogurt trend built slowly rather than overnight. Chobani is good. So is Cabot.

The first time I ever tasted it was many years ago, but as a weirdo who prefers plain, tart yogurt rather than sugary flavored, I've been a bit of a yogurt hobbyist.

I once spent a summer in Spain making it on top of a refrigerator. I've also made it in a low oven, but it came out too soupy.
Anyone who really likes Greek yogurt might be glad to save some money (and use less plastic) by making their own.
I learned from this blog how to make my own yogurt in my crockpot.

I buy it when it's on sale. I don't really think it's any better than "American" yogurt, though.

I don't like the tatse and texture. Even though it is similar to sour cream (which I like) it's not for me. However I have used the plain non fat greek yogurt in recipes and it's fine.

Have you tried the pineapple Chobani? It's fabulous! And if you want to make it even more fabulous, add four or five fresh blackberries to it. YUM!!!

It's a little high in calorie and fat for me, but the taste and texture is good. No matter what I try I always go back to Yoplait light.

It's good.

I like it for a dessert......just plain with some raspberry preserves or diced mango on top.
