Is "Greek" yogurt special?

iheartcooking | Aug 18, 2011 08:11 AM

I've noticed that Greek style yogurt has become very popular (duh! Better than the nasty yoplait to which they add gelatin to get any texture.)
As a happy result some national brands are selling individual "Greek" yogurt cups for a great price but I hesitated to buy them. Is Greek yogurt really just less watery (or whey-y) regular yogurt? I've drained plain yogurt in the fridge to acheive the same result and it was pretty good. Is there some subtle technique or flavor I'm gonna miss out on if I don't get the high-end stuff?

(sometimes I enjoy yoplait)
