Greek Gods Yogurt Review

Like many I didn't know the difference between Regular yogurt and Greek yogurt.

What is Greek yogurt?  (quote from wise geek)

Greek yogurt is a type of yogurt that is celebrated for its very thick and creamy texture. The process for making it includes extra steps that result in its thickness. It has about the same creamy texture as sour cream, and provides an excellent substitute. It has recently become more increasingly available in the US, because the taste and the lack of bitterness make it a wonderful treat.
Typical Greek yogurt made in Greece may use either sheep or cow’s milk. Imports to the US tend to stick with cow’s milk variants, since sheep’s milk has a tangier taste and may be disliked by those unfamiliar to it. Most US made versions of Greek yogurt use only cow’s milk.
The principle difference in creating Greek yogurt is that after the milk is heated and cultured, it is allowed to sit in muslin or cheesecloth bags, so that the whey filters out of the yogurt. You’ll note that some yogurts have an almost runny texture, or have liquid on the top when you open them. Greek yogurts don’t have this liquid because of the straining process.

Also there is tons of health benefits of Greek Yogurt found here

I tried three flavors Honey, Plain, Strawberry Honey.  Strawberry honey did not sound to appealing to me.  For some reason those flavors just didn't sound good mixed to me.  I tried it anyway.  By far Strawberry Honey was the best!  In fact their strawberry honey is my Second favorite yogurt ever now.  It's creamy and delicious with a light strawberry and a touch of honey flavor.  I found these at my local Baker's Supermarket.  (part of the kroger, dillans chain.)  In fact I just bought some more yesterday.  

I handed out several coupons for people to try it and tell me what they think.  One said honey was ok, Plain was good but their favorite is also Strawberry Honey.  Out of all the people I let try it Strawberry Honey was the favorite out of all of them.

  1. This yogurt is the best ever, I can not begin to explain how good it is. Once you try this yogurt you will be hooked. My boyfriend and I will eat a whole tub of it at a time it is that good. We prefer the honey on it's own, or with cut strawberries and Kashi granola cereal in the mix but the yogurt is so good it is the main attraction. I wish we could find some coupons although I havent tried too hard to find them yet. We don't even eat ice cream anymore as this yogurt fills the void

  2. If you want to try real Greek yogurt, get Fage, or (if you like flavors) do Chobani. The Greek Gods yogurt doesn't have nearly as much protein as real greek yogurt does. Chobani has a host of awesome flavors, making it my husband's favorite. The Costco brand is pretty good for plain, too. I found that this yogurt had a grainy consistency and was very unpleasant to eat.

  3. I liked this yogurt so much I had to research if it was really good for you. Honey tastes like cheesecake to us. I can totally replace ice cream for this. But my question is nutritionally is it healthier for you than ice cream? I got the full fat version. Creamy not a lump anywhere.
    I think the previous poster has a personal bone to pick with them... My experience doesn't match and I disagree.
