Since I first tried the Greek style yoghurt while living in Portland, OR I am hooked. I just love the creaminess of it - I don't like fat free yoghurt though. Anyway, I payed in Oregon between 3-5 dollars and now I live in St. Louis and it took me a while to find this kind of yoghurt and it cost around 5 dollars for 2lb. (That last me 3-4 days)
That is pretty steep so I wonder if you love this yoghurt as much as I do, what do you pay for it in your town?

Cannot remember how much I pay, but to make it a bit less costly:

Chobani is my favorite...I buy a lg container then also buy smaller ones of the store-brand Greek yogurt...sometimes 1/2 price of brand name yogurts.

Then I mix them together....

Buy one of these:

Cuisipro 83-7426 - Yogurt Cheese Maker with Lid

Then put 32 oz of Dannon plain yogurt in it to make 16 oz of "greek" yogurt. Costs about $1.25 - $1.75 for 16 ounces this way. (After you've paid off your initial $16 investment in the drainer)

Dannon/Stonyfield, Chobani, Fage, etc. are between $1.50 and $2.00 per single-serving container where I am, which is not something I'm willing to pay. A local dairy makes one that is a buck, and it's good, so I go with that. It's a couple of ounces bigger than the others, too.

Are there others who, like me, find Stonyfield yogurt taste strange? Whether it's plain or vanilla flavor, it always has a strange taste in it that I can't characterize. The other day I tried to use the plain one for cooking, and it made the dish have that taste, too. No other brands have that kind of taste.
