My New Favorite: Yogurt
Greek Gods Greek Yogurt: Fig
I'm slurping down the last little bit of it as I type and --flavorwise -- it's fantastic. The contrast between the sweet fig and the tangy, thick yogurt is phenomenal. And I'm liking the fact that it's not too sweet.
Now, there is a downside. If you're a purist, I'll warn you that this is not authentic "drained" Greek yogurt. I didn't need to visit Chowhound to figure that one out. I silencd my "inner snob" right away as I was standing in the dairy aisle. Ultimately, the fig yogurt was on sale and it sounded good (fig yogurt is not exactly commonplace around these parts), so I caved.
On top of everything, it's not exactly a local product (it comes out of Washington State). We try to stick with local products as much as possible. But, sometimes I just can't resist trying something new and out-of-the-usual-box.
