I love Siggi's. You have to be careful, though, because it is easy to find the 0% and 2%, but only a few stores seem to carry full-fat (4%). I can get it at Sprouts and Whole Foods.

Otherwise, my failsafe is Mountain High Plain.

I grew up eating sweetened, flavored yogurt, but my palate has changed. Now I prefer plain unsweetened yogurt over fresh fruit, or with a little raw honey or pure maple syrup, to any preflavored variety. I like it totally unsweetened, too.

I think there are two reasons for the prevalence of nonfat, sugary yogurts (and other foods). One is of course that people have been told that "fat is bad," and supposedly Americans have a huge sweet tooth and want everything sweetened.

But the other side of the coin is that it is financially advantageous for dairies to make products out of nonfat milk. If they sell whole milk or make products from whole milk, that uses up all the milk. But if they separate it into nonfat milk and cream, they sell the nonfat milk for just as much as the whole milk, AND make the cream into ice cream, whipping cream, and butter, all of which are very profitable.

Sugar is very cheap. Use it as a "filler" and you need less of the expensive ingredients like milk/cream in yogurt, peanuts in peanut butter, etc.

Same here. Only like Greek full-fat, plain. Fage or Trader Joe's here too.

I tried Siggi's recently, and wasn't impressed, but I'll try again, and will be careful to look for the full-fat variety. Thanks.

I'm buying the Tillamook yogurt in Oregon. I hear from all over the country that people love their ice cream and cheese, so I assumed that the yogurt went all over, too. Maybe it doesn't.

I just saw and bought this for the first time this week! Key lime, and it was delicious.

You can find Straus Family Farms yogurt at Whole Foods, your local Food Co-op, and similar outlets.
I'll vote for Strauss too, but I don't know how far they distribute. They make my fave Greek and regular yogurts.

I also love the smari and siggis Icelandic style whole milk yogurts. They make lots of fat free ones, you have to look for the whole milk ones too.

And the Fage Total is great too.

I buy Green Valley Organics. I don't know how it compares to any other plain yogurt, because I haven't eaten many of them. But it's lactose-free, which is good for me. I eat it with berries (today, raspberries) and walnuts usually.
