I work in a bookstore and I have a chance to check out whatever book I want for two weeks at a time. I actually bought this book though. The top foods in a category have a red star by them.

I enjoy the flavor of this 100 calorie greek yogurt brand. I have seen Strawberry and Blueberry in Walmart in six packs. Another plus is it contains five active cultures.
