True Confession

Here's my gripe of the week.

I just don't like Greek yogurt.

There.  I've said it.  Yeah, I know it's supposed to be good for me.  And everyone else on the planet seems to be in love with it.  But it's just too thick and tart for me.  It just tastes like sour cream, which is basically what it really is.  Sour cream with some fruit added.  I like sour cream -- but I can't pretend that sour cream is yogurt.

And why is it GREEK?  I've never been to Greece, but I've eaten in Greek restaurants, and I've never encountered anything that resembles the stuff sold as GREEK YOGURT.

I do like "regular" yogurt. But if you want yogurt that's not "Greek," it seems you're out of luck.  It's almost impossible to find the regular kind anymore.  Even plain ol' Yoplait is getting harder to come by in the grocery stores around our area. 

Stonyfield Farms used to make a wonderful "chocolate-on-the-bottom" yogurt -- a tasty mix of vanilla yogurt with a layer of chocolate to blend in.  It was delicious -- smooth and chocolatey, but not too sweet.  A real treat, and I loved it.  Until it disappeared from store shelves.  I was sad.  But then it reappeared.  I was delighted.  And then I tried the new stuff.  Guess what?  It's "Greek."  Like sour milk with a little cocoa sprinkled in.  Quite a taste experience, to be sure. 

I guess I just don't like Greek yogurt.

But I do like to gripe.  I might make this a regular blog feature.

Linking up with...


  1. I enjoy fruit flavored Greek yogurt much more than the regular kind-- but I don't like using it in recipes in place of sour cream--it has an odd texture that I just can't take!

  2. I don't care for Greek yogurt either! Actually, I am finicky. I really only like Dannon strawberry yogurt! And yes, I do like to gripe, too, so we're getting along just fine, ha!

  3. I LOVE greek yogurt. It is just the right texture to me. But, to each their own!
