Single-Serving Plain Yogurt in Calgary?

Jetgirly May 5, 2011 10:16 PM

I would like some single-serving containers of plain yogurt. I don't eat yogurt with artificial sweeteners, and I'm sick of the fruity-flavored ones that have like, twenty grams of sugar per container. In a perfect world it'd be Greek yogurt, but this is Calgary. I'm happy to buy them in a multi-pack or as singles. I'd rather not pay Amaranth-ish prices (not that I've seen them at Amaranth)- do any grocery stores carry single servings of plain yogurt?

    That is one of my mom's biggest peeves. I'll ask her if she's found anything but I don't think she's had much luck. Sorry.

    You could make your own. It's pretty easy once you have a culture started.

      I've bought single servings of plain yogurt (to make dips with). I'm pretty sure I've bought them a few times at Safeway (the LIberty brand in the natural aisle).

        Co-op sells single serving sizes of Bles-Wold which is produced in Lacombe, AB. Certainly not Greek-style though.

          What I do is buy the tubs of plain Greek by Liberte or PC, and portion it out myself.

            Superstore has singles of Liberte as well

              I was at Superstore yesterday. The only Liberte singles I saw were flavored. Where'd you find singles plain?

                Sorry - late reply. I shop Deerfoot Meadows and buy the Libertie plain to make yogurt at home. It is in the organic dairy section.

                Superstore is always touch and go though...

                  So Superstore at Deerfoot Meadows carries Liberte single serving size plain yogurt?? Wow I can only find the multipack of flavored ones in single serve size at our store. I'll definitely have to stop in the next time we're down there.

              I did see the Liberte plain singles at Safeway today but they were hard to swallow at $1.80 each (on sale). I guess I'll keep bringing my tub to work each week!

                +1, I also found these at the Safeway at North Hill Mall. It is a bit steep considering they weren't that big. So, I'm left with just portioning off some of my yogurt in those tiny rubbermaid single 1/2 cup containers. Works out to JUST about a yogurt singles cup.

                I saw single serving PC Greek yogurt at Superstore today.
