"Also....check out Chobani greek yogurt. A little higher in calories per container (larger serving), but packs a PROTEIN punch. I really try to avoid anything "artificial" and this is pretty straightforward stuff."
Funny you should mention Chobani, because I happened to have a cup in my fridge. I've been reading a lot about greek yogurt, and how it has better nutritional value than most yougurts. When I went to the grocery store last week, I decided to buy some and try it out. Chobani was the only brand they had available at Target. So, I bought two vanilla flavored Chobani Greek yogurts.
Here is what the packaging looks like...
I totally agree with you Libby on the nutrition with this greek yogurt vs. other yogurts in general. It definitely packs a harder/healthier punch.

I really, really, really wanted to like this yogurt, but my honest, personal take on Chobani was it's a "no go" for me. I can't get over the texture - it's pasty and a little gritty. The flavor is okay, a little tart, but I'm sure each container is a little different. The first container I ate (remember I bought two), I put in a little granola and some dried cranberries. I ate the second container today, plain. Both times, the texture just made it difficult for me to enjoy. Too bad! I really wanted to like this one.
Question: Do all greek yogurts have this different kind of texture, or is it just this brand?
