I now understand the fuss about Fage...

I just ate my first ever container of Fage yogurt.

OH. MY. GOD.

That stuff is freaking amazing!

I will be going to the grocery store right after work. Must buy more. Kallis33 has gone Fage and she's not going back!

  1. Ah....soon Fage will attain total domination....no longer will we be able to stomach a sickeningly sweet spoonful of Yoplait or the runny consitency of Breyer's....we will all be FAGE-ites!!! We will chant together and make our supermarkets carry 2%, or even the full fat...or, yes, even the wonderful Fage with honey and then we will buy, buy, buy it...forsaking all other yogurts.

      As a recent Fage convert myself, I find myself salivating at the thought. It's the flavor, the taste, the texture, the everything. I've found 2% flavors at FreshMarket near my office. It's bliss...

    2. Wait until you taste your first contaner of Liberte. You may become seriously conflicted.

        ok, I'll bite...what is Liberte and where have you found it and can it actually rival FAGE????

        1. re: leahinsc

          I get it at my local Co-op. It is a Canadian product and oh my goodness is it wonderful. The walut and plum is dessert for breakfast. I think someone mentioned some sightings at Whole Foods? We don't have one anywhere near us so I cannt confirm. It is certainly worth looking for.

          1. re: Candy

            Is it cow's milk yogurt? What's the fat content? See, I'm not so keen on flavors as i am just the consistency of the FAGE...nevertheless, I'll look for it.

              Leah, check here: http://www.liberte.qc.ca/en/page.ch2?... Here's what's available in the U.S. - http://www.liberte.qc.ca/en/page.ch2?... - scroll down and you can see where it's sold.

              Yes, I get it at Whole Foods in the Boston area. Mmmm. Whole Foods also has water buffalo yogurt (I forget who makes it) that should be quite appealing to Fage lovers.

                I found Liberte when I went to buy more Fage last night at the Golden Goose Market in the North End of Boston. I literally squealed with delight upon finding a container of 2% Fage with honey! Especially since it was the last one. I purchased some of both and will be comparing the two brands this weekend. I think they are going to start referring to me as Yogurt Girl at that store.

        2. I had a luscious bowl of fage at a local chain called Bread and Chocolate. There is no going back, simply none. It was served with honey and walnuts (plus some berries from my DH's french toast). I will be scoping out the nearby Trader Joes and Whole Foods to get me some soon.

          1. I'm a Fage lover myself, and someone who generally avoids all low-fat/non-fat products. Except with Fage - their whole milk yogurt delivers a whopping 90% RDA of fat! Fortunately, their low-fat is delicious enough. Try it in Tzatziki with grilled meat...mmm....

              I know, I know (she said weeping)...the fat content.....but the taste..I'll give up ice cream, cheese, whatever it takes so i can occasionally have the Fage with honey...

              1. re: glorypea

                I use it to make tzatziki all the time. Fab-u-lous.

                1. re: glorypea

                  I just saw Fage tsatziki at Trader Joe's. Has anyone tried it?

                  1. re: chowser

                    Fage tsatsiki is awful. Tasteless

                    1. re: emilief

                      Really? I thought it was rather good.

                      1. re: Budino

                        I like their tsatziki very much.
