Do you guys like it? I got some at the store yesterday (this is my 2nd attempt) and I REALLY want to like it because people keep saying it's so good for you! But it has the consistency of sour cream and it tastes kind of sour, and I'm having trouble getting on board with it. Is it an aquired taste perhaps?

I have some in my fridge here at work but I haven't tried it yet. I think it's definitely an alternative in cooking to using sour cream in recipes. But as far as eating plain, I think you do need to jazz it up with something - granola, fruit, m&ms..lol I'm anxious to see what people suggest also.

The kind I got is strawberry and banana flavored...I added a little honey to it as well. Maybe I should buy it plain and then incorporate fresh fruit and granola? The ready to go little containers are just so easy though.

Like it? No. Eat it? Yes. In all honesty, I really don't enjoy any kind of yogurt. But, I dislike it less than milk so I eat it for the calcium. And since I'm not going to enjoy it regardless of the kind, I eat Greek Yogurt since it packs the biggest benefit.

Yes, but only with full fat. Can't stand low fat yogurts. Fat free Greek yogurt is terrible, however full fat Greek yogurt is absolutely delicious. Why do people think fat free yogurts are healthier? Often times they're loaded with sugars to make up the difference in taste. It's not hard to eat less of something. Fat free is a huge scam.

Full fat Greek yogurt isn't sour at all and very creamy.

I love sour cream and it's texture but I don't like greek yogurt. My husband loves it so I buy it for him and I eat yoplait light. I have cooked with plain greek yogurt and I am fine with it in recipes but just to eat it on it's own even with fruit in it I just don't like the taste.

I don't like Greek yogurt it it is way too rich and fattening. I make my own yogurt since 30 years instead!

Put it in a smoothie or get it frozen, very tasty either way.

I'll eat it. I'm learning to like it. However, I have to have the strawberry kind. Can't get the others down yet.

I like the Pineapple and Raspberry flavors of Chobani, but unfortunately they only make the pineapple in 2%.

WalMart now has a Great Value Greek yogurt that is pretty good, and they have pineapple in fat free.
