Most yogurt I see on the shelves in supermarkets are non-fat or low-fat . I personally like whole fat yogurt. The best I can get is the LIBERTE Yogurt Perfection (or Méditerranée, not sure if they changed name), in 6-oz cups. It has various flavors. I wonder if there are other tasty whole-fat yogurt being sold that I am not aware of. (This is only about whole fat yogurt available to buy, so please don't turn it into a discussion about non/low-fat or home-made yogurt. Thanks.)

p.s. My favorite flavors of LIBERTE yogurt: Lemon (I seem to remember the brand was originally Canadian, then somehow became U.S.)

Gosh, how many yogurt labels have I read trying to find that too!! Ha ha, I resort to looking for the most calories. Sometimes that's quicker than reading anything else. Anyway, we're not all dieting, etc. Well, I'm going to check back here and hope to find some treasure-type info.

Thanks for bringing this up!!

YES!! Best whole fat yogurt (plain): Straus Family Farms! They also make a flavored yogurt, but their yogs don't come in those 1-serving sizes, only in the large family size. Their one flavor (and it's a good one!) is pomegranate-blueberry.


You can find Straus Family Farms yogurt at Whole Foods, your local Food Co-op, and similar outlets.

Glad to see this. I've been saying this for years! Zoi makes a good whole fat yogurt.

I read the "Total Fat" content. If it's anything less than 5g, skip it. And of course, if the front label has big print "0%" "1%" "2%", skip it, too.

I buy full fat, plain yogurt (usually) from Whole Foods-- and then add frozen or fresh fruit (whatever I have on hand-- usually a berry mix or cherries-- but sometimes peach or mango) plus a drizzle of honey (or real maple syrup). If I'm feeling fancy, I'll whip it up in a blender-- but 99 times out of 100, the kids and I just eat it as is, without blending.

I also drain full fat yogurt in cheesecloth to make yogurt sauces (such as tzatziki)-- yum.

Brown Cow makes a nice cream top yogurt, but recently I've been eating Chobani whole milk Greek yogurt, which I think is really wonderful.

I really love Noosa yoghurt. (They spell it with the "h".) It's delicious, and they have some unusual flavors along with more common ones.

Beat me to it! I've tried them all and love Noosa for it's texture and creaminess. Thee Pumpkin is outstanding along with Peach, Coconut and Black Cherry.

home - noosa

We liked Noosa, but it contains gelatin and is not vegetarian. Too bad, because it was delicious. Now we like Brown Cow (maple, with some pumpkin seed granola on top, or vanilla). Trader Joe's French vanilla is good too.
