Trader Joe's Imported Greek Yogurt...as a dip

Pete Hamann | Sep 25, 2005 06:22 PM

Hi There,

Well the topic of yogurt came up in an earlier post and the imported Greek yogurt was mentioned. I love this stuff. I use it mostly as a sour cream substitute. The Total brand, nonfat imported Greek yogurt tastes exactly like sour cream to me. I put it on potatoes, Mexican food, and dips. This brings me to the reason for the post.

Trader Joe's is the only place I have found "Kettle Crisps" LOW FAT potato chips. They are by the same guys that make "Kettle Chips" in the paper bags in all kinds of flavors. They are actualy low fat, and not just reduced fat. At only 1.5 grams of fat per serving (that's 6 grams for the whole bag) and NO satch fat, these are just the ticket for the chip lover who is trying to cut down on satch and trans fats.

The yogurt comes into play now. I use the non-fat yogurt to make onion dip and then enjoy it with some of the Kettle Crisps. Voila! Guiltless chips and dip! Oh, and this stuff tastes just like the real thing too. I am a pretty picky taster when it comes to subbing low and no-fat, and my buds can't tell the difference.

I just wanted to let everyone know. I want to see these chips do well in the market so that they continue to make them and expand the line. Right now, they are available in salted and BBQ. They are way beeter than the other brands of reduced or low-fat chips.

Pete
