Fage is my favorite. I have tried a lot of them and for me Fage tastes the best. I like Fage Total with Honey, Peach or Cherry. I realize that is a lot of calories, but worth it to me to have something I enjoy so much!
I love Chobani. My favorites are the Mango or the Chobani bite Fig with orange zest. Yum! Also if you like their facebook page they have giveaways. I just won a case of their tubes for my kids this week.
I recently discovered Oikos and love it! I also like Chobani.

While Greek yogurt is good, I can have more 8 oz. of nonfat reg. yogurt for 120 calories. I like to sometimes add raw carob pwd. 1 tsp. 15 cal. + stevia and I then have a low calorie equivalent to ice cream.
Mine is Easiyo Low-fat greek yoghurt. The sachets are easy to use in my easiyo yoghurt maker & I usually get a consistent creamy texture. And buying extra sachets when on sale means that I always have a steady supply of yoghurt, even when I don't have the spare grocery money to buy some.
I've tried using my Easiyo to make yoghurt from scratch, using milk and yoghurt starter, but I have yet to get the texture of it as good as the sachets do.
A good alternative to Easiyo is Hansells. Sometimes Hansells sachets are on sale, making a 1 Kg tub of natural yoghurt cost a low $2.50.
But when I use to buy pre-made yoghurt, my favourite was Black swan breakfast greek yoghurt. It has a good thick and creamy texture, and tastes great :)
The cost factor is another reason why I love homemade. I can make it for so much less.

I absolutely love Fage. It has a great texture and it's mild enough that I love it plain (still haven't managed to make my own yogurt I can eat plain yet). I have six ounces of either the plain 0% or 2%, depending on how many calories I have left and which expires first, every day mixed in with a tablespoon of blueberry preserves. It feels so rich and indulgent and I really look forward to it. I've found it makes a great dessert as well. It's kind of ironic. I was out and had to eat at McDonald's so I ordered their fruit and yogurt parfait to try and be healthy. My first thought was that it was absolutely tiny compared to what I normally eat (although that might have been the container). Then when I actually went to eat it I did a double take - I haven't had sweetened yogurt in so long that it tasted more like ice cream or frozen yogurt to me!

Wish I could go for Fage or Chobani or something, but I eat so much of it all I can afford to get is the generic, plain, in the 32 oz tubs. I go through those in less than a week. I'll get a tub of vanilla flavored greek yogurt to make protein shakes with since its sweeter and from a lot of what i've read, a little sugar is pretty ok for you post-workout.
That's a corner of my fridge. Gallon of skim milk, tub of cottage cheese, tub of plain greek yogurt, and slightly smaller tub of vanilla greek yogurt. Roommate jokes that I keep dairy farmers in business.

I love, Oikos plain, low-fat Greek yogurt - it's delicious. I'm also very partial to Trader Joe's low fat pomegranate yogurt; it's got flavour but is not overly sweet.
Haven't had the chance to try the Icelandic Skyr referred to in another post but have heard a lot about it - it sounds wonderful.
My favorite crock pot, that made it perfect, the liner broke. My other crock pot is too hot, another is too big. I havent tried the oven. But I have been making it perfectly the last few times, when I have used the liner of the too hot one, and set it on the "warmer" on my stove top for about 24 hours.
They are all pretty much the same. But I probably old say that Fage has a slight edge.

Chobani honey flavored... Although, I'm not eating it as much because it is so high in calories. I might have to check for the Chobani bites now! Thanks, SOTIREDOFTHIS!

I went to Target to return some items. As I was wandering around in their refrigerated section I stumbled onto Chobani bites. As I enjoy Chobani's yogurt, I was delighted to see these smaller containers that would be perfect for a snack. The best part, the flavor was raspberry and dark chocolate......Divine!
