Fage Greek Yogurt - With Honey - At Many Stores
Fage is one of many brands pushing new variations on old fashioned yogurt. Greek yogurts tend to be thicker, often made with cream and milk, and often fewer unprounceable ingredients.
Fage meets those standards. The yogurt is made from nothing more than milk, cream and active cultures. Then, Fage adds honey. Or it adds a little container of honey next to the container of yogort. You spoon the honey on top, and it's creamier, sweeter and more natural than the supermarket brands that you grew up on.
It's also more expensive. Pushing $2 each. But that's a small price to pay if it actually gets you to eat breakfast in the morning.
You can find Fage at many stores. I bought at Harris Teeter in Fulton and Columbia, Roots in Clarksville, and Whole Foods in Baltimore. (Update: Comment below says some Giants and Safeways have Fage as well.) We found more varieties as the store got more expensive -- two or three at Harris Teeter, a half dozen at Roots and then all those varieties plus the ellusive chery at Whole Foods.
(Update: Check the comments for a yogurt recipe and several other options. I thought yesterday's yellow peppers were a great find, but the local passion seems to focus on yogurt! As always, thanks for the comments.)
