It's All Greek to Me: The Greek Yogurt Trend

Hi everyone!

Nowadays I’ve been hearing a lot about Greek yogurt and there are a lot of brands out there. Greek yogurt is different from regular yogurt because it is strained, which removes more water and make the Greek yogurt more thick and creamy. There is also more protein in Greek yogurt than in regular yogurt. Which one should you buy? That’s what I’m here for! I decided to pick 3 brands and critique them on taste, nutritional value and overall yumminess! I’ll then rate the yogurt on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the best and 1 being the worst.

The first brand I tried was Voskos Greek Yogurt. The yogurt was light and creamy, and it had a great flavor! One container of Voskos Greek Yogurt has 13 grams of protein, 13 grams of sugar and 120 calories. I give Voskos 8 out of 10.

The second brand I tried was Brown Cow Greek Yogurt. The Brown Cow Greek Yogurt was not as light and creamy. It was heavy and it wasn’t as flavorful. One container of Brown Cow Greek Yogurt contains 13 grams of protein, 17 grams of sugar and 130 calories. I give Brown Cow Greek yogurt 6.5 out of 10.

The final brand I tried was Fage Greek Yogurt. The Fage Greek Yogurt was thick and creamy, and it had a really good flavor. One container of Fage Greek Yogurt contains 10 grams of protein, 17 grams of sugar and 130 calories. I give Fage Greek Yogurt 8.5 out of 10.

There are 3 main things that make these yogurts different. The Voskos Greek Yogurt had its strawberry flavor mixed throughout the yogurt. The Brown Cow Greek Yogurt had the strawberry flavor on the bottom of the cup. Finally, the Fage Greek Yogurt had a little container on the side of the yogurt with the strawberry flavor for you to mix in however much you wanted.

Thanks for reading!
