Generally, the correct yogurt is...

Wed Sep 19, 2018 8:00 pm

Greek yogurt.

Specifically, the correct yogurt is Fage 5% Greek yogurt.

To further its correctness it must be mixed with fresh berries or fruit. Blackberries and kiwi are my favorites. Though not together, that would be gross.

Trivia: Fage, pronounced “fa-yee” is the Greek imperative or command often heard uttered by frustrated Greek mothers toward recalcitrant children at the table: Eat!

Well, today I had a Yoplait Strawberry. I generally prefer Cherry, but they only sell Cherry in individual packs and we buy the bulk packages which only seem to come with 4 strawberry + 4 peach.

My wife makes an excellent yogurt "dressing" that pairs well with spring salad. Throw a bit of feta cheese, candied walnuts, blue berries and strawberries on top of a spring lettuce + baby spinach 50/50 blend and you've got yourself a proper spring/summer time salad to enjoy outdoors.

Plain yogurt with vanilla extract and sugar (to taste) added, nothing else, is the correct yogurt!

Frozen Yoghurt (preferably pomegranate frozen Yoghurt from Pinkberry). Anything else and I will be burping and feeling sick in my stomach for hours.

Can we also agree the correct pronunciation is 'yoggert', not 'yoh-gurt'.

The incorrect yogurt is one that hypes the universal health benefits of probiotics. Because it's a lie.

Making yogurt is actually extremely easy. Just need heirloom (reusable) cultures that can be propagated indefinitely. It means you have to actually make yogurt every 7 days though. Which is honestly a pain in the ass.

And if I'm being honest. In a zombie apocalypse.. I can probably go without yogurt.

The whole milk one I make in the Instant Pot. But bring a gallon of milk to 183 degrees F on the stove top (the automatic program for this is 'for the birds'). We bottle 2/3rds of it and strain the rest - better than sour cream. Also Yoplait seems to have the best starting culture.

I go through phases w/ yogurt and get pretty sick of it pretty quickly. For Greek yogurt the Fage 2% flips are my preferred choice. But what I really like are the Trader Joe's whole milk yogurt cups. They come in a six pack for about 3 bucks... while they are smaller than say a Yoplait because they are full fat they are more filling and satisfying.

Though I think I can say that the incorrect kind is non-fat yogurt sweetened with artificial sweetners... that shit is fake AF as the kids would say.

On your "recommendation", I just tried Yoplait's Oui Key Lime French Style Yogurt. It was the only French Style Yogurt in the yogurt section, and comes in a nice little glass pot (5 oz, 141 grams). Better than the undistinguished soup that passes for regular yogurt, but certainly not the correct yogurt.

I stand by my earlier claim that Fage 5% Plain with berries or fruit is the correct yogurt.

My kids really enjoy the Plain yogurt at Old Chicago that comes with strawberries. That and watching tarzan on the tablet with the other kids kept them busy last night while us older kids enjoyed a couple of nice oktoberfest beers. Which is, by the way the correct beer to drink this time of year.

Soy yogurt all the way. Tastes better. Also doesn't cause bloating and brown rain (for me at least).

Well, since the correct yogurt does not cause bloating, nor the opportunity to experience brown rain, I'll pass on the fake yogurt produced using fake milk.

But, whatever (soy) creams your twinkie. I'm not here to judge.
