We returned from visiting Iceland a few weeks ago and loved the "Skyr.is" brand skyr, which is a super thick type of yogurt that is delicious. I guess it's not technically yogurt, but that's the closest category. In any event, we haven't found "Skyr.is" brand yogurt here, only Siggi's Icelandic Yogurt, which is really not tasty at all compared to Skyr. Anyone know if Skyr.is is stocked anywhere in the Twin Cities? I'd love to find it.
Agree - it's great stuff. I found skyr.is a couple of years ago at the Whole Foods at Fairview and Grand in St Paul, so I'd definitely check there. I don't shop there much anymore so I can't say if they still have it. (Check the expiration date, though - I ended up tossing a couple of containers that were bought on or after the expiration date.)
I have not seen the commercial brand, but Star Thrower Farm makes a traditional icelandic farmstead skyr.
They were at the Fulton Farmers Market last year (4901 Chowen Ave S., Saturdays 8:30am-1:00pm). You may want to check with them before making the trip, for two reasons: (1) their cheeses are seasonal; (2) the vendor page on the market website says that they are there on alternate weeks with Love Tree Farm.
