My new favorite yogurt

I really really like Greek yogurt. I used it for the first time when I made Mango Ginger Frozen Yogurt. I've since eaten it plain, used it to make homemade tzatziki sauce and most recently tried their fruit/honey pairings (the bottom 3 containers in the photo above).

The pairings are kind of like Dannon's "Fruit in the Bottom" yogurts, but it is more like "Fruit on the Side." Plus, with it on the side you can decide how much (or little) you want. Remove the foil lid, tip the side compartment and dump the contents on top of the yogurt. My favorite so far: Honey. It has more calories than the rest (180 vs. 130 for the fruit version), but if you don't use all of the honey, you are probably fine. Plus, it is so good!!

I haven't tried any other Greek yogurt brands outside of Fage yet, but plan to.
*At my usual grocery store I found this in the refrigerated health food section, but Whole Foods stocks it by the other yogurts in dairy.

oy vey, you jumped on the greek yogurt band wagon? I must have missed it when it went by! Still really have no desire, although your thoughts on it have made me potentially want to consider reconsidering :)
