  • I would be tempted to try and make my own (my grandpa used to make his own cottage cheese so how hard can it be) but with all these bloody cats I 'd either end up with a hairy mess or they would eat it on me.
    Don't think Siggi's is on this list as it wasn't available in 2009. Several years ago, we stayed at a Disney World hotel, and my girls and I loved their "Yogurt Parfaits" for a quick breakfast. It was just vanilla yogurt with fresh strawberries and blueberries topped with wheat germ for a little crunch! I make them at home all the time, this morning with Siggi's vanilla, fresh strawberries and a fresh peach! Totaled 219 calories, 18g protein, and 5g fiber.
  • I like Dannon or kroger brand, non fat or low fat, plain.
  • I wish they had Siggi's and Oikios on the list
  • Yogurt has come a long way from the only flavor was plain yogurt.
  • I really like Siggis yogurt.
    I adore real yogurt, plain - not low fat or no-fat. I love the slight tartness of it, and the texture. It is just comfort food for me.
    Even one you make yourself tastes foul, simply because it's yogurt.....
    The best "fruit" yogurt is the one you make yourself!

    1 Cup plain Greek yogurt + 1 TBSP fruit preserves of your choice = 140 calories, NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and a lot less sugar.
  • There are 2 brands of yogurt I buy in Canada,one is endorsed by weight watchers,they come in the standard 4 oz. serving, that is in the stores here,not many companies here sell the 6 oz. serving size. They both cost around $6.00 for 16 1/2 cup servings and have some fruit,no fat,no sugar added,they are 35 calories each. I buy what I can afford and what is low calorie in most items,if I did not I would eat a lot more calories to get what my body needs and gain weight.
  • Love Vaskos yogurt but have never seen it on the list. We have it only at one store Ralphs (Kroger chain). Harder to come by it plain tho'
  • Siggi's has become my favorite yogurt, short ingredient list and low sugar content.
    I am horrified at how lousy yogurt tastes, the flavored kinds are not good, the kinds with Splenda can barely be tolerated if you happen to want to get some quick calcium, but yogurt just tastes lousy, another so called healthy food that tastes blah to many people. There are reasons why so many people don't like healthy foods, this is one of them.
  • I cannot believe an article recommending yogurts with artificial sweeteners like aspartame is being promoted by Spark People. I am, in fact, horrified.
