Heaven in a Bowl

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Yes, that is what it's been described as, Heaven in a Bowl.....Chobani Greek Yogurt.

When I was recovering from surgery awhile ago, a friend of mine knew a man who made this wonderful yogurt. So to lift my spirits they brought me a gallon of this yogurt.
Needless to say , it was my first time trying it, I have been in love ever since.

Price Chopper has just started selling it. (marked new product)

Has anyone had the chance to try it ? If there are any yogurt fans out there , it is one of those yogurts you just have to experience.
If you need to know more about the product , just type the name on the web and it will bring you right to the site.

I haven't tried it yet because I like Fage Total greek yogurt so much. I guess I'll give it a try.

I buy it at my local grocery store, I see it everywhere. Try looking for it in a few of your nearby stores. I'd be surprised if they don't have it.

I've got to try both Chobani and Fage. I do love yogurt (the real stuff, not Dannon etc.).

Dont know if you have Lidl in your part of the world. We enjoy their produce here in the UK and I know they have one on the outskirts of Atlanta GA. Anyhoo, They do a tub of Thick, creamy greek yogurt that is the best i ever tasted. Lidl is a german based supermarket chain i think and heavily into continental produce. V V good

We don't have Lidl around here but I shop there all the time while in Greece. Love their greek yogurt. Their feta is delicious too.

I haven't found Chobani yet but I'm having Fage for the first time. This Fage is somewhere between yogurt and yogurt cheese. I like the tangier taste of un-strained yogurt. This Fage would make a good baked potato topping, but to me it's not yogurt.

Petals, have you tried Pavel's Russian style yogurt? It's my favorite so far, that I've tried.

What do you mean it's not yogurt? Of course it's yogurt, it's used all over the world as yogurt, and in some parts of the world (like greece and turkey) it's the only yogurt that is known. You can't discount it as a food item just because you're not used to it or because you've never eaten it before. That would be like me saying that risotto is pretty good but to me it's just not rice because it doesn't taste or look like the rice I'm used to having. Honestly I didn't taste unstrained yogurt until I came to the states and it looks, tastes and feels like goo to me. But it would be ridiculous to go around saying that it's not yogurt.

I like and buy the Total yoghurt, too. It's really the authentic taste of Greece to me, probably because when I lived there, if you didn't make your own, the only choice was Fage!

Yes, of course it's yogurt :D It's a matter of personal taste that Fage is not what I would prefer to eat plain, which is how I usually eat yogurt. I grew up in India where some whey was drained off, but the yogurt was still pretty tangy. That's just how I prefer it.

It makes more sense to just say you don't like it rather than suggesting that it's not yogurt. We greeks can get hostile defending our beloved foods and traditions. It's funny, my friends know me to be a good cook and I love hosting dinner parties where I usually tend to focus on mediterranean style cooking. Funnily enough my best friend who is Indian has told me she can't taste any flavor in my food. She once even thought that the curry powder I had dusted on my scallops was just salt (implying that there simply wasn't enough to taste whereas for me the curry flavor was almost overpowering). It gets me to wonder if those who grew up with southeast asian foods that are very complex in nature, heavy in sauce and throbbing with heat have an aversion to the mild and delicate flavors of the mediterranean cuisine.

I once had a yogurt that was called Greek, and it was just the way I like it. Maybe it wasn't typical. Part of what makes a yogurt great to me is the cultures used--for my taste the bulgaricus culture should be in the mix (Fage does have this). The most common American yogurts don't have it, and some use gelatin or even corn starch as thickeners. Yuck.

Here again, just saying my tastes.
