So far my theory is proving true (out of the humongous sample of 19 voters) that yogurt gets a bad rap. Only 2 so far said "yuck".

I'll confess to preferring the not-so-good-for-you kinds with sugar in them, and I like the ones with granola conveniently added! Some of the kinds of liked have just been more expensive (can't remember all the brands). I pretty much stick with Yoplait light, and once in a while treat myself to the fancy stuff.

I've tried to do just plain unflavored yogurt but...always end up mixing something in with it anyway.

I've sold a few people who haven't tried yogurt for twenty years to try it again, it's not your grandmother's yogurt. Hee hee.

At first I saw "yogurt PULL" and thought, that would be messy..

Sally, you make my day...

I really dislike Greek yogurt. I don't like the texture at all.

I've been using Kefir in my smoothies...seems much better for you.

Question: does it help IBS?

Yes, Kefir helps. I just had a CE and it suggested that it is Bifidum infantis strain is very useful in IBS.

Kefir by Lifeway has this, but most yogurts do not.

More on Kefir:

Basically those who have had many antibiotics over their lives,
would need to pay attention to the benefits of both yogurt and Kefir.

The Kefir we have is just delicious...I use it as a dessert.
The plain one takes getting used to, but the fruit ones are far better than yogurt IMO.

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.

I started out with the sugary cheap yogurts years ago, and have now graduated through Activia to Chobani greek. I like Kefir too, but strawberry-banana tastes best to me. Some of the others I have to hold my nose to get down! It tastes ok, it just stinks. You can use plain unflavored yogurt as a substitute for sour cream a lot of the time.

I need to watch my carbs, so I eat the store brand S/F kind. When I want to splurge a bit, I buy the frozen kind. Like ice cream, but better. The plain kind I use to make tsadziki. Just a little shredded cucumber, a bit of garlic, salt n pepper. Mix well, let stand for a few hours, then snarf it up with fresh bakery bread or pita.

I only tasted home made natural yogurt once and yucky, that was enough. My Lebanese/american friend's family used to make it and some of them loved it, but then the also ate raw lamb/kibbe.

I prefer the all american yummy flavoured (natural) yogurt..

Grew up on the stuff; Dad used to make it (do you remember the three cup model).

My favorite is the Greek yogurt with honey. We used to freeze the "fruit on the bottom" varieties for the kids. You peeled off the top & flipped it over for the best fruit sundae on the planet!

It isn't a quest; it's the unknown reaction to the unaswered question. If you don't ask it, you'll never know. The journey, needs answers.
