I buy full-fat Greek yogurt at Trader Joe's, or I buy Fage. I can't eat regular yogurt anymore; gotta be Greek.

We buy full-fat yogurt at Shoprite. Their brand is pretty good. I'll have to look for the suggested brands here for Greek; I can make it myself, but it's a process.

I also like Brown Cow, Stonyfield, and Seven Stars Farm. All come in the same type of container and have a thickened layer of cream on top. I buy only the plain and if I ever want fruit in it I add it myself as I don't like all that sugar they put in. They are sold as health foods and you can find them at your local health foods store, including Whole Foods.

I've been eating Brown Cow for decades. I love the cream top.

To my taste, yogurt is the same as milk. Once I trained myself to consume the low-fat kind, the full-fat versions came to taste terrible to me. Like eating butter with a spoon.

My current yogurt of choice is Tillamook Farmstyle Greek Yogurt. It's very creamy and not as tangy as many other Greek yogurts. The kind I buy is 2% milkfat with a huge amount of protein (the plain kind has 25 grams per serving). The flavor called Coffeehouse Blend has 14 grams of protein, only 150 calories per container, and makes a great dessert.

I too love Noosa and Brown Cow cream-on-top yogurts. Both available at Whole Foods. There's a brand called White Mountain that makes whole-fat Bulgarian yogurt. I've never seen it sold in little individual cups, only the large container which I believe is a quart. Like Greek yogurt, it has a slight tang. You can try Whole Foods, an organic co-op, or an ethnic supermarket that carries foods from Eastern Europe and the Middle East (labneh is a full-fat yogurt from Arabic countries).

I am lucky if I can get full fat. I have Stonyfield now. I like Brown Cow cream on top but I haven't seen it lately. Noosa is good as dessert but only comes in very small containers. I would rather have plain.

Our stores are full of fakes and non fats.

Best is cream yogurt made from raw milk that I can sometimes order from a dairy that delivers to my town.

Stonyfield, even the plain one, seems to me to have a hint of weird taste.

Those that divide the yogurt and topping into two separate compartments (such as Chobani Flip) don't seem to be very tempting to me; I also have trouble to wipe clean that fruit from the corners of the bottom

Eh, American born and bred, and I don't do low/nonfat ANYthing.

I pretty much only like Greek yogurt these days, and I don't like any yogurt with fruit, never did. Plain, or vanilla or other non-fruit flavors only. My personal favorite is plain Greek yogurt drizzled with a little honey, maybe some almonds mixed in.

I like Siggis the Icelandic yogurt. They recently launched the whole milk option. It is high protein like Greek but not as thick in its full fat variety. The non fat is thicker. It is quite delicious. I also like the Voskos full fat but it is harder to find. I like Fage better than Chobani. But Chobanis full fat is good.

We also get Russian and Bulgarian plain yogurts that are full fat in our stores.

Siggis has a few flavors. I get the plain, vanilla and fig lemon. There are 1-2 more flavors.
