It's been all Yogurt Reviews this week (and last week), and I wonder if I saved the best for last. I got no strange looks at the grocery store when I bought 10 different brands and flavors of yogurt, and the last one left standing is Oikos Nonfat Greek Pomegranate Yogurt.

I received a few coupons for Oikos Organic Yogurt a few weeks ago, and I've had a heck of a time finding them in my local grocery stores! When I finally found them at a D'Agostino's near me, I checked out the Strawberry flavor.
Each 4-ounce Oikos Organic Strawberry Greek Yogurt provides 90 calories, no fat, 12 grams of sugars, no fiber, 10 grams of protein, and 10% of the daily value for calcium.
I received a couple of coupons for free Oikos Nonfat Greek Yogurt 4-packs a while back, and I've had a heck of a time finding them! When I finally found them at a D'Agostino's near me, I opted to try the Honey flavor. This cost me $5.85, but I've seen it on sale for $3.99.
In case you haven't been paying attention, people everywhere are going nuts over Fage Greek Yogurt. I find Fage's thick and creamy texture its best attribute, but its flavor is pretty bland (read our review - we are one of the few people not going nuts). So, I thought I would give this competing brand, Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt, a whirl. Oikos is made by Stonyfield Farms, a company whose products I normally like especially because they're organic.
The plain version of Oikos is quite similar to Fage. Same great thick texture, but it needs add-ons like honey or fruit to make it truly delectable. Oikos also makes a vanilla flavor, which has just 20 calories more than their plain variety (120 vs. 100 for a 6 ounce container). I had high hopes for this lightly sweetened version, but alas, I found myself adding a packet of Stevia to the container. Unfortunately for you 2% Fage fans, there is no 2% or full fat variety in Oikos line; all their products are 0% fat.
