This yogurt is AWESOME! The flavors I've tried have had between 70 and 90 calories per 6 oz container. The yogurt is WAY better than Light and Fit in my opinion. The texture is thick and creamy and it's absolutely delicious.
Oh! And only 49 cents per container!!!! Can't beat that!

Store brands are often very good, so give them a try! This is especially true of things like frozen fruits and veggies, staples like flour and milk, and cleaning products, where the taste or use doesn't vary much between brands anyway.
House brands I like: 365 (Whole Foods), Wegman's, Up/Archer Farms (Target). Trader Joe's, of course, is the King of Store Brands, since nearly everything they sell is their own store brand!
Go for yogurt when you need calories or are in doubt
If you find that you just ate under calories for the day, eat a cup or two of Fat Free Light yogurt. Most store brands carry a wonderful selection that will be around 100 cals, and less than 20 carbs (like Publix brand).
And the flavors are great! Instead of eating a piece of cake, I eat Black Forst Cake yogurt, or Carrot Cake yogurt.
There's a reason Michael & Fiona eat yogurt on Burn Notice - it's good for you, cheap to buy, & is great for energy!
I go shopping for yogurt if I even get down to 10 containers in my fridge drawer. I live for this stuff. And it's a great snack at night, and you can add more fruit to it if you like.
If you have a Target near you, I'd like to recommend the Archer Farms Fruit Bars. The Pomegranate Raspberry ones have only 65 calories each. There are other flavors, too like Peach Mango and Strawberry Banana - They're a little higher in calories - 110 cals each - which still isn't too bad for a snack. They're also low in sodium and fat and have 2g fiber.
