A waste of another five dollars, you’d think money grew on trees by Tracy Crisp | Jul 17, 2007 | old school blogging | 18 comments I prefer the thought of yoghurt to both its texture and its taste. 18 Comments Mary Bennet on July 17, 2007 at 5:18 pm I’ve never understood why anyone ever thought it was a good idea. Maybe it started as a marketing ploy by farmer trying to get rid of milk that had gone off. Reply suse on July 17, 2007 at 8:57 pm I feel that way about coffee. Reply blackbird on July 17, 2007 at 9:53 pm I find the thought of yogurt frightening but can be soothed if it is whole milk vanilla yogurt with a fresh peach sliced into it it. Reply Helen on July 18, 2007 at 7:55 am Oh I’m out of step with this one. I lerve it. I’m eating muesli with thick yoghurt as I read this. Try Farmer’s Union Greek style or Jalna (NOT low fat- the red lid or black lid). It is a peculiarity of yoghurt that as you keep taking it out of the container, especially if you pour off any whey collecting, it will get thicker and creamier as it goes along. Your problem might be that you are being pressured into buying the low-fat rubbish? it’s sour-tasting and usually has gelatine in it. Reply elsewhere on July 18, 2007 at 9:26 am The new greek-style generation of yoghurts are very good. Reply Pavlov's Cat on July 18, 2007 at 11:29 am Five words, 3C: King Island Honey and Cinnamon.

Reply Ariel on July 18, 2007 at 6:41 pm me too Reply Zoe on July 18, 2007 at 7:53 pm I stand with Helen, el and PC on the subject of yoghurt. What about custard? Reply suse on July 18, 2007 at 8:17 pm Oh I could live on custard. Not that stuff out of a carton though. Homemade. With banana if I’m being extra healthy. Reply Kate on July 18, 2007 at 9:49 pm I love yoghurt. I love muesli, grated apple, yogurt and a splash of milk. Or muesli, poached rhubarb, honey and yoghurt. Mnnnn. Hungry… Reply Pavlov's Cat on July 19, 2007 at 2:27 pm Suse, when one is desperate, the Paul’s (carton) custard is actually pretty good. But I agree that nothing beats cream, eggs and a vanilla pod.

Reply Mummy Crit on July 19, 2007 at 4:11 pm I’m on the pro-yoghurt bench here, but only if it’s real. None of that Ski weird stuff. I do like the Jalna low-fat biodynamic one though. I can recommend Paris Creek biodynamic, and it’s local to you – better still is Mungalli Creek from Millaa Millaa in FNQ…but am I wasting my breath? Reply redcap on July 19, 2007 at 10:39 pm Oh, but the Greek Yoghurt Shop in the market near Lucia’s sells the nectar of the gods! Especially with fresh (thawed) berries. Ski, Yoplait and all that other set-in-plastic sludge is certainly not to be countenanced. Reply Tony.T on July 20, 2007 at 9:35 pm Five words, PC: King Island Honey and Cinnamon. And one picture. Reply tut-tut on July 22, 2007 at 7:55 am Yoghurt’s only for those who grew up eating it; it does not engender converts. Reply river on July 23, 2007 at 5:10 pm Tried making your own?
