Chobani Greek Yoghurt

robinkayh May 4, 2011 01:31 PM

I'm trying desperately to find Chobani Yoghurt in the Toronto area.... any tips? As far as I know it is only in the US. If you know about this product, are there any other products in the market that come close in the taste and quality?

    All Loblaws are carrying it now. 5 flavours are available, pomegranate, peach, strawberry, black cherry and plain. $1.99 for the small container, $7.99 for the large container (plain only).

      I've seen Chobani at the Supercentre at Dufferin/Steeles (kosher section) and at Whole Foods on occasion.

        I've recently seen Chobani at Longos at Bayview & Laureleaf. They had a few different flavors.

          Chobani is available in many kosher dairy sections as it is a kosher certified product.. I have seen it at Metro (Lawrence and Bathurst) and No-Frills (Wilson and Bathurst). I have also seen Oikos (Pusateris and Summerhill market, and occasionally at Loblaws on St. Clair West). Summerhill Market also carries Fage yogurt which is my personal fav. The price differential is huge from the US pricing. I bought Oikos or Fage at Publix in Florida for 5 for $8.00 or even 6 for $8.00. I suspect there are quotas bringing in these products due to the protectionist dairy marketing boards in Canada.

          I did try the new President's Choice Greek Yogurt and it was pretty good, but only came in 500gr containers and although it was much cheaper than Chobani, Oikos and Fage on a per gram/basis, IMHO it wasn't as creamy and thick as the other Greek yogurts.

          McEwan's at Don Mills/Lawrence has the single serving cups of Chobani, not sure about other sizes.

            For how much, $4.95 each?

              Astro Original's fruit on the bottom yogourt tastes 100 times better than the Chobani. I don't find anything special about Chobani as it tastes more like a regulart yogourt but leaves a weird aftertaste. Or another suggestion if you wanted specifically Greek yogourt try the Astro Greek, it is very thick and creamy. Walmart has it on sale for $2.97

            There is brand called SKOTIDAKIS which is made in Ontario, and it is similar. It has the little pot of compote or honey on the side. I bought it at Sun Valley on the Danforth the other day, for $1.99 each. I think I have seen this brand at Whole Foods too.

            I have a container at my desk, so here is their website: www.skotidakis.com

            Hppy hunting.

              The former Pape IGA has Skotidakis also, I saw it there a few weeks ago and the price is similar.

                loblaws has chobani.. never tried it though..

                the full fat version of skotidakis has been the most like the yogurt i have had in greece... the no fat verion is kinda disgusting..

                  I LOVE Skotidakis. I buy the plain greek one (and just ad my own fruit or maple syrup) at The Big Carrot (about $4.69 or so). But if you want to pay $2 more for the exact same container, Summerhill Market has it too. Skotidakis has a slight tangyness that I love and is very thick.

                    I want to pay $5 more for the same container, should I go to McEwan in that case?

                    What size is the container at the Big Carrot?

                      Actually just found Skotidakis 9% MF plain greek yoghurt for $3.99 at the big supermarket just east of Sun Valley Fine Foods on the Danforth. Cheapest price I've seen.

                    I've actually occasionally seen it at the No Frills on Yonge/Steeles. It's not always available and is hidden with other "ethnic" dairy products.

                      Summerhill Market definately has it. I see it there all the time. The single serving cups are 2.99 each.

                      I have bought Chobani at Pusateri's and Summerhill Market. They haven't always had it in stock though.

                        I would contact the company via email and find out from them if they are selling the product in Canada.

                          Noticed some small containers of the flavoured varieties at Yummy Market on Dufferin.

                            Try Summerhill Market. Is this the one with the separate container on the side for honey? If so, they carry it.

                            I'm of the thought of "why bother", if you have low fat. I still only go to Greek delis, notably Sun Valley on Danforth & Gough. I'll skip Liberté, Oikos, & Astro . Actually I wasn't a fan of yoghurt until I went to Australia where you fund house made, returned home to find Greek yoghurt as the closest thing. BTW-Melbourne Australia is the 2nd largest city of citizens of Greek descent after Athens. I'm sure due to them, the yoghurt & olive oil is outstanding.
