Hi everyone, quick 1st question: Has Anyone Else Noticed The Big Difference In Costs of Meds Twixt Longs And Walgreen's Vitamin Shopp?.

My 2nd question is: It's called FAGE, it's comes fat free...80 cal; 0g fat; 13g protein...it's Greek yogurt, which means it still has all the good bacteria in it...to my knowledge it only comes plain, which is only what I eat but may not appeal to others. It is so rich and THICK, almost tastes like cream cheese.

My breakfast each morning is yogurt, breakfast bar, fruit and my fat portion of ground flax seed, chopped up and mixed together...well let me tell you, I could barely stir all of this, it was so thick. I'm thinking it could be used to make a mean frosting for cookies or cakes....NS friendly of course..

It is heaven............I have been enjoying this for some time. Once you try this no other yogurts with all the crap will compare. Filled with great protein and low in sodium. I ad 1 cup of berries and NS granola..I mix a touch of honey with it. I feel it is so healthy I don't want to add a splenda.....

If you have a trader Joes they have it and much cheaper. It is more costly. Also whole foods have it and many supermarkets..

ENJOY>>>>>>>>.

I will have to try this again due to all the raves. I bought it about a year ago and both hubby and I found it too "tart" to be good at all. Umm...Trader Joe's, here I come.....

I love Greek yogurt and Fage yogurt is the best kind that I've found in the US. The yogurt in Greece is not sweetened like the yogurt in US and is usually eaten with fruit, honey and walnuts. It is soooooo good...

Comment #3

I also love the yogurt and have been enjoying it for a long time. It can also be used instead of sour cream. We do not have a Traders Joe here but Meijer has it also.

Well enjoy the yogurt and the day...

Stop & Shop carries the FAGE yogurt. Walmart does also, but the fat free version tends to sell out quick..

Mixing up or stirring the yogurt prior to consumption will diminish the slight tart taste. Great with some cinnamon, a free food, sprinkled on top...

I love it! I like the fact that it isn't "sweetened", has tastes rich, is thicker than most US brands and has a HUGE protein count for the calories. I use it at snack (when I remember to have it) with my fruit "mixed in" with a little cinnamon or nutmeg sprinkled in..

I was pleasantly surprised the first time I had it - We have 2 different greek yogarts available where I live (can I think of the other name - no but when I do I will post it) so I can usually get one or the other. Just make sure you get the fat free version - since Fage has 0, 2 and 5% fat (at least in Kings Supermarket in Jersey)...

I love Fage yogurt. It lends itself well to either sweet or savory. I mix it with cut up fruit or add a bit of SF syrup (to die for!) or add herbs and no salt spices and dump some raw veggies in (or use as a dip). It is really good. Low in cals, zero fat and high in protein!.

I don't have a trader joes - but a local Stop and Shop carries it...

I usually make chocolate muffins on the weekend...with Bisquick Heart Smart...this weekend I think I'll try making a frosting with the FAGE...it takes so rich, almost like cream cheese so hopefully it will work...maybe a little cinnamon in it...cinnamon and chocolate...hummmm. Although it's so good, it's almost a crime to put anything in it..

I got it in my regular grocery store, which is a ma/pa type place so they normally don't carry everything, but they had it. It was with all the other yogurts. It might be in a health food store too..
