I tried. I really tried. Several times, in fact. But I just can't get into the whole Greek yogurt craze. According to Lance Armstrong, the benefits of Greek yogurt are aplenty – more protein, less sodium, less carbs, easy to digest.
And tons of people are loving it. Several co-workers bring it in almost daily. I'm seeing more and more brands at the grocery store – which is why I got tricked into buying it in the first place. You see, I suffer from this
quirk idiosyncrasy tic bad habit where I HAVE to buy things that say "NEW" on them (please don't tell my clients that). I'm even seeing more advertising about Greek yogurt on TV and on the radio.
And of all the benefits and advantages that Greek yogurt boasts, I really don't think that "thicker and creamier" is one of them. In fact, I believe it's quite the opposite.
If you haven't had Greek yogurt yet, and are curious as to the texture, here are some comparisons:
Basically, try it if you're a weirdo and like to taste dumb things. If you're not a weirdo, continue buying regular yogurt flavors, like orange and vanilla, and, heck, why not, black cherry. If you REALLY want to have some crazy yogurt time, you can always venture out with some Boston Cream Pie, Trix, or even the Jamie Lee Curtis-approved, make you poop, Activia.
I love a good tragedy, the olympics and the original "Clash of the Titans". But the Greeks really let me down with their yogurt. Hopefully you have a better experience.
