Olympus Traditional Greek Low Fat YogurtOkay, so we have reviewed lots (maybe too many) Fage, Chobani and other 'well known' Greek Yogurt, so I wanted to try a brand that was new to me. In the grocery store, I stumbled upon Olympus Traditional Greek Yogurt at 2 for $3.00, much cheaper than quite a few other Greek yogurt. I chose 2% over Plain Nonfat because I find that 2% is just creamier and more satisfying.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 6 ounces
Calories: 119
Total Fat: 3 grams, 5%
Saturated Fat: 2 grams, 11%
Sodium: 50 mg, 2%
Carbohydrates: 29 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 7 grams
Protein: 15 grams

It was not surprising to me, then, that I found this to be quite ... creamy and satisfying! The texture was a bit smoother than Fage but still as thick and rich. It was almost like fromage blanc ... mmm! I feel like I could spread this on bread and have a cream cheese-like snack! I loved the decadent flavor added by the little bit of fat, and I knew I was doing something good for myself by eating this.

Each 6-ounce cup has 119 calories, 3 grams of total fat, 2 grams of which is saturated, 7 grams of sugar and 15 grams of protein. There is also 17% of the RDA for calcium.

The ingredients are simply, Grade A pasteurized reduced fat milk, yogurt culture. I can't think of a single thing not to love about Olympus Traditional Greek Plain 2% Low Fat Yogurt (2%). Sorry Fage, you have been dethroned as my favorite yogurt. Olympus is now King! If I could give this more than 5/5 I would!
