Everyone it seems is into Greek yogurt like crazy right now. All of a sudden everyone is walking around with Chobani, Oikos, Fage, etc. Not so much before.

I've never been a fan of yogurt because I don't like the texture. I don't like pudding for the same reason.

But I recently bought these Healthy Choice frozen yogurt cups but IMO they're a little pricy or such small cups. Like I said, I don't like regular yogurt texture and I've sampled Greek yogurt and the sour cream like taste makes me gag.

But these Healthy Choice cups are really good. I'm assuming it's because being frozen has changed the texture and thus altered the taste.

Could I buy the cheaper yogurt cups and just freeze them? I know they're meant to be refrigerated but the taste is so less severe to me when frozen. Maybe I'm tasting it and thinking about it being ice cream so hard I'm ignoring the taste. Or any of them - Chobani, Fage, whatever just keep it in the freezer until it's hard like ice cream then eat it.

Would that make them go bad or something? The altered taste is what I want to lose the sour cream taste. At least to me it taste like sour cream with sugar and I really hate the taste of sour cream.

I've never frozen Greek yogurt -- I like it too much in its unfrozen state -- but I have frozen regular yogurt. Like you, I was never a fan of regular yogurt because of its consistency (same for pudding, like you said... blech!) and thought that by freezing it, I'd end up with, um, frozen yogurt. But it doesn't solidify quite the way I thought it would.

Definitely try it, though. It won't go bad.

So it doesn't solidify like ice cream? What does it look like?

Some Chobani yogurt has fruit on the bottom, it seems like that may freeze solid. You certainly wouldn't be able to mix it in.

Honestly, I don't remember more than that there was a thin, solid layer on top. But I don't remember the rest. It wasn't BAD -- it just wasn't what I expected. Try it with one cup and see if you like it.

Sure you can freeze yogurt. You can even add some stuff you like into it ( nuts, flavor, fruit etc) and make pops.
Look at all those beautiful options you have here:
frozen yogurt pops - Google Search
I make my own using just a plain yogurt, flavors and frozen fruit. There are many variations to try

I detest the sour cream taste of yogurt and also don't care for the texture. The only way I'll eat it is if I freeze it and then add it, frozen, to a smoothie. (So yes, you can freeze it. I buy whatever is on sale... plain, with fruit, Greek, etc., and put them directly into the freezer.) Depending upon the kind/brand, sometimes I have to cut the container off the frozen yogurt in order to get it out.

Me too I do not like the texture and taste of greek yogurt but my husband loves it. I do like sour cream though.
