    I fucking live on this shit. And from the article, it seems like a pretty good company... the American dream.

    Favorite flavors: Lemon (mainly for the texture) and Black Cherry, but my grocery store can't keep those 2 flavors in stock, so I'm usually stuck with peach and blueberry.

    I have a bunch of it in my refrigerator as well. I wonder if they will eventually go public.

    I was wondering that myself. I don't have much $$$ in the stock market, so I only invest in companies that I'm also a customer of... I'd be a very happy Chobani shareholder.

    The 15 grams protein is what initially drew me to Chobani.

    Ah, Chobani. $1.29 a cup at my store! I love the stuff! I hope they knock out Yoplait and Danon soon though... those two snodgrass companies put out shit for "yogurt".

    "...apple cinnamon, blood orange, and passion fruit"

    YES! YES! YES! Dear god my store needs to carry these. icon_mad.gif

    I also love this yogurt and have been eating it almost every day for about 5 months. My favorites are pomegranate and strawberry.

    Can't wait for the new flavors - especially apple cinnamon.

    Chobani is great and the first brand of Greek yogurt that i saw at the grocer, however Stonyfield is healthier for you, and there are many new and better greek yogurts.

    It's debatable whether Stonyfield is "healthier" for you or not.

    That's great! I love Chobani yogurt, and will probably continue buying it in the future. Greek Gods is another good brand...especially the "Honey" flavored one.

    I've been addicted to this shit for nearly a year. I get the plain flavor and then add a shit ton of splenda and some sugar free preserves.

    I have a Chobani yogurt almost every day. It's become my favorite yogurt. I'm also attracted to the fact that it's very high in protein, but has very little or no fat, depending on whether you get the lowfat or nonfat.

    My favorite flavors are pineapple and strawberry banana. According to a Publix employee, the pineapple flies off the shelf. The fact that I live in Florida could be a factor. People love pineapple here.

    Last week, Publix was selling whole cored pineapples for $2.99. A cored pineapple usually sells for $4.99 and up - higher up north.

    Chobani also has 5 Probiotics, in addition to the high protein and very low/no fat.

    I'm a Greek Gods man myself but now that I hear of this massive amount of protein I'm clearly gonna have to give Chobani a try.

    More of a Fage fan myself:

    23g protein per serving (serving size=227g or 1cup)

    This is taken from the plain "Fage Total 0%".

    kSCim.jpg

    At about $6.50 USD per 1kg container, that comes to a protein per gram cost of about 7¢ per gram or 30¢ per serving (using 250g servings)

    Only 9g carbs per serving though I'm sure that I easily double that by stirring in blueberries along with about a teaspoon or so of blueberry preserves.

    Eeeg. Avoid the Splenda (sucralose) if you can. The human body cannot metabolise it at all, and I'm convinced that the bit of bodyfat I have left that won't be shifted is a remnant from my diet soda drinking days.

    If you must have a sweetener either go with the real thing (honey or cane sugar) or a fruit preserve made with no added corn sugars (HFCS).

    I'd consider Stevia as well.

    In my opinion, sucralose and aspartame are the Devil's sweeteners icon_wink.gif
