Where could I get Icelandic skyr in New York City?
Hello from a sunny, breezy and cool New York City! I'm wondering---where could I get Icelandic skyr in New York City please?
I *just* spotted this the other week at Whole Foods in Union Square. My first time w/Skyr was in Iceland and a bit of an unpleasant surprise (I was expecting something more... yogurty), but it def grew on me, so I was pretty excited to see it here.
I've recently become highly addicted to Skyr. For those that aren't familiar with the product -- it's a yogurt-type produc with very high protien (16g/container), low calories (120), fat free and relatively low carb (12 grams).
Bouley Bakery sells a really delicious skyr -- made by some guy out of his Chelsea loft, I believe. The flavors are orange ginger, blueberry, pear mint and a couple of others. Really delicious. The approximate nutritional info that I quoted above is form the skyr sold at Bouley. Around $3 a container.
Butterfields Market on the Upper East Side also sells it -- but it's pricey there, like $4.95 a container.
And, WholeFoods -- I got it at the one on 24th.
What is it? What do you eat it as a meal, snack, do you cook with it. sounds interesting and what to know more, thanks
