Looking for Best Yogurt in the Bay Area

lrealml | May 3, 2011 12:28 PM

I have been trying to eat yogurt more often for breakfast. I have been eating Straus's low-fat yogurt, but recently decided I wanted to try a Greek style yogurt. So because Fage gets a ton of hype on Chowhound, I decided to try it out, and I bought a tub of the 2%.
Ugh... this stuff is flavorless and chalky. There is no tang to it like there is with the Straus yogurt that I am used to.
I understand that apparently Fage's quality is not the same as it used to be, but there are still so many posters on Chowhound that swear by it... I thought if would be halfway decent. As it is, it is barely edible by my standards; although, I'm sure I can make it through the tub if I mix in some Straus yogurt, honey, and tons of strawberries.

So this brings me to my question... what is the best yogurt available in the bay area (Greek style or otherwise)? What yogurt should I try next (or should I just go back to Straus)? I am really looking for low-fat yogurt that I can afford to eat a few times a week, but we can discuss full fat and expensive options as well for curiosity's sake. We have a lot of local options that are not available elsewhere (like Straus), so I am posting here and not one of the other boards.

Thanks in Advance
Robin
