Whole Milk Greek Honey Yogurt
February 2, 2015—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
By now you know the story of Greek yogurt - most of the liquid has been strained out, making its texture more like that of sour cream. But did you know that's only part of the story? There's a dark secret behind much of what's marketed today as "Greek" yogurt. You see, to save both time and money, many yogurt manufacturers skip that all-important straining process, instead choosing to add thickeners to regular yogurt to achieve a similar, creamy texture. We find that more than a little disingenuous for a couple of reasons. One, real Greek plain yogurt has no thickeners. And two, real Greek yogurt is significantly higher in protein than its yogurt relatives, specifically because of that straining process. We make this vow to you: all of the Greek yogurt at Trader Joe's is made using the traditional method of straining the majority of the whey from the yogurt.
We've long sold a single-serving size of our Greek Honey Yogurt made with whole milk (from cows not treated with rBST), and now we're offering that same delicious yogurt in a 32 ounce size - equal to four individual servings. It's smooth and creamy, super rich and an ideal balance of yogurt-y tart and honey sweet. Each eight ounce serving has eight grams of protein, and contains live, probiotic cultures including s. thermophilus and l. acidophilus to aid in healthy digestion. We're selling each 32 ounce container with a resealable lid for $4.99, a terrific value for "real" Greek Yogurt. You'll find it in our dairy case.
