Fruit-on-the-bottom Yogurt: To Stir, or Not to Stir?

miss_bennet Feb 13, 2009 08:58 PM

I just enjoyed a delicious fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt. That is to say, I ate the yogurt off the top, and left the "fruit" in the cup.

Does anyone else do this?

Is it just me, or is it different from plain yogurt? I think it's gently flavoured with the flavour on the bottom. I've always eaten yogurt this way. I just love that light, fruity tartness only the top of fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt can give me!

Does anyone know why it's so good? Is it actually different, or I am just crazy, and it's plain yogurt? (I really don't care if I'm crazy; it's good eats.)

    Well, you have my permission to eat fruit-at-the-bottom yogurt any way you choose. In fact, a believe there's a move afoot to guarantee that right by Constitutional amendment.

      I don't usually mix them, I prefer to keep them separated. If you want really good yogurt, (if you can find it) Brown Cow cream top yogurt is the best yogurt I've ever had.

          if it's the Yoplait non-fat Greek fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt that I bought on sale this weekend, don't stir. You might end up with a spoonful of strawberry-flavored paste. Pleh.

          (yeah, it can never be on a big enough sale to get me to buy it again.)
