Not all yogurts are created equal. So, just like I don't like some kinds of regular yogurt but love others, I like some Greek yogurt brands/flavors. I have found that don't like any of the greek style though.

I also have had the Yoplait honey vanilla and actually add about a tsp of honey and cinnamon to it and it is like having dessert!

I tried Greek once and I thought it was SO gross. I had coupons for it recently, so I got the yoplait honey vanilla and made a really AWESOME smoothie with it. I also had some plain the other morning with blueberries mixed in, and while it was very different that what I'm used to with yogurt (I'm a HUGE yogurt eater), it wasn't as bad as I thought.
I didn't like it at first, but I really like it now that I'm eat the Oikos Dannon brand. Delicious. The honey flavor works really well with smoothies, and I freeze the ones with fruit on the bottom and eat them when I want ice cream.

I hated Chobani and Fage, they were disgusting. I wasted my money on those because I threw them away. Then I gave Oikos vanilla a try, the one that John Stamos advertises. Love the vanilla and the fruit flavored. I don't like plain at all, even in the Oikos.

You must try ChoBani's greek yogurt before you give up on it completely. If it is plain add honey, vanilla, or fruit to it.

No I don't like Greek yogurt. I love Krogers carb master yogurt at only 60 calories. I have this every evening.

I can't have it just plain cause it tastes like sour cream (which I do use in place of for things like on tacos, or enchiladas) So I now found that I like to mix 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp chia seeds and 1/4 cup of my baked granola in it. SO GOOD, I have it every day for lunch. I use the Dannon 0% plain since I add in the others to it.

You know, I think sometimes if it's something like the texture or something that throws you off, then you may never like that particular thing. I've been eating plain greek yogurt for the first time, with fresh fruits in it, and don't particularly like the taste right now. But I absolutely love the texture, so I know the flavor is something i can get used to (plus, I like the tang). . . But, you know, there's no sense in eating something you don't like. There's nothing wrong with just the standard yogurt.

I started eating Greek yogurt this week. I didn't like it at first, but it is growing on me. I have it over fruit with a little maple syrup to cut the tart taste. I personally like the texture, but not the texture of normal yogurt.
There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.
I, too, do not like Greek yogurt! I know everyone raves about how great and how healthy it is for you...but I tried it and it was so gross (the plain kind, with fruit on the bottom)...the texture was too off, as well as the sour taste. I don't have a problem reaching my calcium or protein requirements each day, so I'd much rather just have my regular non-fat yogurt, not Greek yogurt!

I don't even notice a difference when I make a smoothie with Greek yogurt versus a standard version. Weird.
Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.
Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!
Out of curiosity, what brand and flavor did you try? I LOVE Greek yogurt, but definitely NOT plain. I prefer Fage and Chobani only, basically any flavor. They are all great. I can stomach plain only on baked potatoes - and a small amount only.
It can definitely be an acquired taste for some...I love the texture of it too, so that makes it really appealing to me. I do remember the first time I tried it years and years ago (before it became popular). It was the honey one....Bleck. I nearly gagged. I love the honey one now I didn't try it again until 2 years ago. So glad I did!

hahaha, you are definitely not alone. The only time I can stomach the taste is when I use it as savory as opposed to sweet, like as a substitution for sour cream.
Not all Greek yogurt is created equal. You have to get the right brand. I personally like Fage or Chobani. I get the 0% fat, plain kind and add it to some frozen strawberries, almond milk, and a banana for a filling smoothie.

I gotta say...I hate this stuff....I love yogurt but not the Greek...anybody else feel the same..
I made a sparkpeople smoothie with the Greek and it just ruined it...bleh
