FAGE Greek Yogurt's tagline, "ridiculously thick yogurt," is not hyperbole; think the consistency of softened cream cheese, making for an incredibly rich, creamy texture. But their 2% line also comes in four different flavors in addition to plain -- peach, strawberry, cherry, and honey -- so that while this all-natural snack delivers all the protein of a lowfat yogurt, it also tastes like dessert. In our humble opinion, no other yogurt -- Greek or regular -- comes close to FAGE (and we've tasted a lot of yogurt).
As might be expected, FAGE is pricier than the average yogurt, and sadly, the brand sometimes seems to be elusive in certain regions. But when you do find it, trust us -- stock up. You'll be glad to have an emergency stash when a craving hits.
