Since we've gone mostly organic, however, and now that Hadman's a toddler (ie it's cheapest/easiest to buy generally the same products), all of our milk products are made of organic milk. Any time I'm cooking with a yogurt, I'd rather it be whole milk since he'll be eating it, too (and there are plusses to whole vs. lowfat), although we "adults" still eat Greek.
So, we had to do some soul-searching on our yogurt choices.
So, we made a jump to Stonyfield. We were already buying their milk (since it's from humanely-treated, mostly grassfed cows), so it was an easy decision...once I let the guilt of not purchasing Chobani fall off my shoulders.
Stonyfield makes all kinds of yogurts, but we purchase the regular (plain is always in the fridge; once in awhile vanilla, but since it has added organic sugar, I limit this), the Greek cups for work (I love the "super fruits" flavor with pomegranate and Dave's a blueberry guy), and half the time I either buy Hadley the baby cups (way less ingredients than the toddler or kid versions, and less sugar) or make little take-along cups with my small Ball jars. Apparently we eat a lot of yogurt. ;-)
Oh, and let's just say we were shopping at a different store last week in a hurry and I found our Greek cups for $1 apiece. Let's just say I literally jumped back a couple of feet and squealed amidst the very busy dairy area, I was just that excited. Yes, folks. A proud moment for my husband, I'm sure.
Yes, it's usually kind of expensive, but not by much. Almost every week, I go onto Stonyfield's website (that's actually a link to sign up for special offers) to see if there are any printable coupons, and I receive the occasional email offer to print. Let's just say that I had a coupon that was expiring the next day and I didn't have use for the item, so when I saw a woman picking up that very item I stopped her and handed the coupon over. She couldn't believe it and kept saying "Are you sure? Are you sure??" Yep. I'm sure. Spread the organic love, folks.
Oh, and if, by rare chance, I find organic no-name yogurt at Aldi, you know I grab every last carton I can find. Cheap + organic = gold. (Probably why that lady was so shocked I was handing her a coupon.)
I feel super happy, though, knowing that the cows that have made our yogurt aren't pumping GMOs (through their corn-based feed...naughty corn), antibiotics, growth hormones, and pesticides into our milk products. The fact that they're generally grassfed also helps me to sleep soundly (as soundly as one can with a toddler nearby).
What about you? Are you a yogurt eater? Whole milk? Or Greek? What brand wins your own yogurt showdown?
