Then break out the spoon and feel like all the holes in your life are finally filled.
I hope this stuff doesn't come from cows on heroin or depressed ones laying near a toxic waste dump.
However it is good and reasonably well strained. By that I refer to what percentage of the liquid or whey is removed from the yogurt prior to packaging. I've made plenty of my own Greek yogurt and know that as much of the whey as you remove, more will settle out. With this yogurt, in this package, I got approximately a quarter cup of liquid. It can be stirred back in but the real point is that Greek yogurt is around twice as expensive as regular - because, of course, so much of the original weight was in the removed liquid. So if a "cheaty" producer wants to make more per container, he leaves more of the liquid in. It is up to us, the consumers (depending on the role of the FDA which I haven't investigated), to notice this and purchase the "good" products. I believe Fage is doing a reasonable job of straining but still cannot justify its price per unit.
There is one thing I don't like about this particular brand beside the high price, and that is the paper that you find over the yogurt when you peel back the tinfoil lid. I have not observed that on any other yogurt I've tried - and I've tried them all - and feel that it is an affectation: "Oh look, our yogurt is so upscale and pure that it needs this protection, extra touch" but in fact this paper is a pain in the neck because it is wet and drippy and if you keep a clean house, must be carefully carried to the wet garbage.Read more ›
I usually add fresh blueberries only. As the other reviewers said, add whatever your favorite things on it.
The only thing I don't like here is it's too expensive!! I got this $4.29 at a local store!
Come on, $6? seriously?
That said, Fage is one of the first Greek yogurts I have tried. I lve the flavor of the plain yogurt, and I use it in many recipes. It provides a little tartness, which is excellent in many recipes. The total yogurt is strained and gives the yogurt a smooth richness.
I often put fresh fruit of varied kinds with my yogurt, or just eat it plain. I enjoy the plain yogurt at lunch time, I add a few almonds or peanuts to give it a crunch and to add protein. My granddaughter who is four, loves this yogurt. She is used to a Gerber yogurt that is sweet. I was surprised that she enjoyed this yogurt, but she said she 'just liked the taste' .

I had never tried Greek yogurt before. I was skeptical at trying it at all for a variety of reasons. First and foremost was the price of Greek yogurt. Plain and simple. I'm frugal at heart, and since I've made my own yogurt in the past, I couldn't see paying the price.
I was fortunate enough to be able to try the FAGE yogurt free. Good thing too, as I'm not sure I would want to dish out $4.00 for a 17 ounce container otherwise. The yogurt is very smooth and creamy tasting. I love sour cream, but this yogurt beats out the flavor of sour cream by far. I was impressed by that. I have now decided FAGE is well worth the price.
Overall, this #1 Greek yogurt is excellent in taste and texture. If you are already eating Greek yogurt and haven't tried FAGE, then put this on your shopping list and give it a go.
