For starters, Greek yogurt differs from regular yogurt in the way it is made. By straining off the liquid whey, Greek yogurt has a thicker, fluffier texture. Celebrities praise it's hunger satisfying properties, calling it the perfect snack. Nutritionists tout Greek yogurt's decreased sugar and more than doubled protein content as the clear winner of the greek vs. regular yogurt battle.
But does it taste good? I decided to find out for myself.My initial evaluation included four popular brands; Danonon Oikos, FAGE, Chobani, and AE. I have since tried a fifth brand, Yoplait's Greek version. I assessed flavor, and compared nutrition labels. When possible, I chose the peach variety for this taste test. Areas of particular interest to me on the nutrition labels were protein, sugar, and the ingredient list.
