As a big yogurt fan, it should almost go without saying that I ran out and scoured the market for this last creation from President’s Choice. I actually quite enjoy Galen Weston Jr. and his silly commercials, so that may have helped push the desire a little more than it should have. My hunt seemed a bit beat down to start, but I finally found pay-dirt this week and grabbed one of the few remaining containers. Now before I go on, I should say that I was not approached by PC or it’s affiliates to do this, nor was the container comped in any way. This is just me and my wallet.
The 500gram container of Greek Yogurt is smaller than the more typical 650gram containers of Source Yogurt I normally buy as well as being higher in price. This past week for example, Superstore had Source on for $2.49, while the Greek yogurt was $4.49. I wonder if Greek Yogurt is a bit of a misnomer and it should just be labeled ‘strained yogurt’, but that might not be sexy enough for those sly marketers. Removing the shiny protective cover from the container, unveiled a smooth, thick & creamy yogurt. The plain flavour might not excite those looking for a sweet hit, but I quite enjoyed the sour tang that coated my mouth. Mixing the yogurt with some berries and granola easily made for a quick and tasty breakfast. Something I repeated a few times over the week. If I pick another container up, which I think is quite likely, I may just whip some honey into it for a bit of sweetness or google for some interesting recipe ideas. All in all, I think Galen and his PC friends did a darn good job on this one.
