Fage Total 2% Yogurt with HoneyI've gotten a little tired of my usual Fage Total 0% and having to add sweetener and vanilla or cinnamon! I therefore decided to give Fage Total 2% with Honey a shot. I don't have much honey in my regular diet, but I do like it in theory, so I was excited to try this treat. Plus I loved the plain Fage Total 2% Yogurt and the fruit flavored Fage Total 2% Cherry Greek Yogurt (although the Peach - not so much).

Serving Size: 5.3 ounce

The first thing I have to say about this: there is a LOT of honey. When I first started eating this, the honey/yogurt combination was great. I wasn't expecting the sweetness of the honey to go so well with the creamy richness of the yogurt, but they were perfect together. The way I ate this was to take a little bit of honey on the tip of my spoon and then dip the honeyed spoon in the yogurt half of the container. I let the flavors mingle in my mouth - yum! But after about eating about halfway through the entire amount of honey in the container, the sweetness got to be a little too much. I guess the good thing about having the honey in a separate compartment is that you don't have to go through all of it.

Fage is an all natural yogurt snack, and the ingredients are simply, Strained Yogurt [Grade A Pasteurized Skimmed Milk and Cream, Live Active Yogurt Cultures (L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus)], Honey (20 %).

Fage 2% Cherry YogurtI've been on a big Fage Greek Yogurt kick lately, ever since I discovered how much creamier and richer the 2% is than the 0% (read the review of Fage 2%). I decided to branch out from my standard pot of 2% to try the fruited flavors available at the grocery store. I vacillated between 2% with Cherry and 2% with Peach, and in the end picked up both. The Cherry flavor is what I tried first though.

Serving Size: 5.3 ounce
Calories: 130
Total Fat: 2.5 grams, 4%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 8%
Sodium: 40 mg, 2%
Carbohydrates: 18 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 17 grams
Protein: 11 grams

I wasn't sure exactly how to eat this - are you supposed to mix in the cherry goo first, or spoon up little bits of each and let it mix in your mouth? I decided on the latter, as the yogurt package advises not stirring the product. I'm usually not the biggest fan of cherry, but this was DELICIOUS woo. The tart and sweet jam-like confection blended perfectly with the smooth, creamy yogurt and before I knew it, the cup was finished.

Each 5.3 ounce container of Fage Total 2% Cherry Yogurt provides 130 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat of which 1.5 grams is saturated (4% and 8% of the daily value), 2% of the DV for sodium,no fiber, 17 grams of sugar and 11 grams of protein.

Fage Total YogurtGreek yogurt can be a great buy - it's a good sour cream substitute, and it offers a ton of protein - but some people find that it tastes sour and unappealing. In the review of Fage Total 0%, Tanya remarked that the yogurt was sour and acidic. I agree (although I think it's much better when you add some Splenda or honey), but I was determined not to give up on Greek yogurt entirely. I decided to try Fage Total 2% Yogurt, hoping that the little bit of added fat would help the flavor.

I picked up a 7-ounce container of the stuff for $1.99 at the grocery store (I think this was an anomaly, and most single-serving containers are 6 ounces, but the nutrition stats listed here are for the 7-ounce size). It was certainly more expensive than other yogurts, but I was willing to pony up the extra cash in an attempt to satisfy my protein-rich, creamy dairy craving. I added a packed of Splenda and stirred, hoping for the best. As it turns out, the extra fat goes a LONG way in helping this yogurt's taste. While the 0% can be sour-tasting, the 2% is much, much creamier and more appealing. It was like eating a full-fat dessert but with a fraction of the fat and calories (Fage Total has twice the number of calories).
