It is so delicious; it’s plain cow’s milk yogurt, and deliciously creamy. I add 2 Splendas, whip it into a froth, and eat it plain … or with blueberries if I’m feeling courageous.
While not everyone agrees on the deliciousness of it (my friend Leigh Yung Li thinks it tastes like Sour Cream Made in Hell by Satan’s Imps), we must all agree that, for plain yogurt, it’s quite exceptional.
Mistake was made yesterday.
Spinning Girl went to market and accidentally picked up:
Notice the labeling; not your ordinary bovine product. Nay (or should I say neigh?), this was an entirely different yogurt altogether.
You know how you go to the Big E* and walk past the pens of sheep & goats, and you get that not-so-subtle whiff of lanolin and poopebble-laced hay?
That is what this yogurt tasted like.
Maybe I’m just not used to sheep’s milk, or goat’s milk. I do like feta and goat cheeses. However, I’ve never felt like I sucked them straight from the teats of the animal like I did with this product.
It also had these random lumps in it, sort of like watered-down tapioca. Mmmmm.
Now, maybe I just got a bad batch. I did buy several of them, and now they are all flocked in my fridge, waiting for me.
Bleating to be let out.
I have an idea that I’ll be releasing these little lambs back to nature, though. Yes sir, yes sir ... three bags full.

Spinning Girl apologizes to Fage USA, Inc. for this unsolicited testimonial. Your other yogurts are the best thing I’ve ever eaten (almost)! I would be happy to appear in one of your commercials. I love you Fage! Especially that big, strong boy who cleans the culture tank, Nicola. Now that's creamylicious.
