Chobani accused of stealing Fage's recipe

This is interesting because I've always thought the two were almost identical taste and consistency wise.

  1. I don't think Fage tastes at all the same as Chobani - or nearly as good. Fage seemed sweeter & I felt you could taste the sweetener alternative, which I did not like. I like that Chobani is not as sweet as a lot of the other Greek yogurts & it is thicker too.

      Fage is the best, IMO. I only buy plain yogurt and add non sweet stuff to it, mostly.

    2. Those are the only two brands I buy, guess it's not by coincidence.

      1. While I only buy the plain, usually 2%, I dont think they taste the same at all. I much prefer Fage. I'll have do a blind taste test.

          I agree they taste different to me too

        2. I buy Trader Joes plain Greek yogurt. It has the bifidus probiotic which is essential.

          1. If Chobani paid someone to rip off the Fage formula, Chobani got screwed.
