Yogurt is not delicious


Many commercials for yogurt proclaim that their particular brand is delicious. It is not. With a bit of fruit and sweetener, yogurt is edible, but it is not delicious. People who choose to eat it do so for reasons of nutrition, not tastiness.

A while back there was a commercial running for some off-brand yogurt. In the commercial, a (thin) woman stood in front of a yogurt display in a grocery store, frantically guzzling down a container of yogurt that she had ripped open. See, it was so delicious that shed lost control right there in the store.

The yogurts two big selling points were (1) that a container had only 90 calories, as opposed to other yogurts 100, and (2) that it was so delicious you would lose control.

Im pretty sure that many, if not most, people who consume yogurt are terrified at the thought of losing control when it comes to food especially people who would choose a particular yogurt in order to save 10 calories. And if a yogurt causes you to lose control and make a fool of yourself in the grocery store, whats to stop you from eating two containers . . . or ten?

Amazingly, that commercial did not drive the yogurt producer into bankruptcy. The yogurt is still available, and no, women are not guzzling it down inside the store.

I believe that a big reason people are so crazy and angry is that we live in a culture of lies. We are constantly besieged by companies who think we will believe whatever they say, even when it is obviously untrue. For ogs sake, we are afraid to answer our phones if we dont recognize the callers number. Yogurt should be clean, healthy, ethical. It should not be among the products whose producers choose to constantly suck us into a sea of untruth and manipulation.

Fuck you yogurt.

While I'm sure there are people for whom yogurt IS delicious (De gustibus...), I am not one of them. Having tried plain, vanilla, and various fruit-infused yogurts, I know that I hate them all.

I do like some brands of Frozen Yogurt, which convinces me that they did something nefarious to the yogurt, and it probably ended up being Not Good for Me.

Yogurt can be good. Especially for people who enjoy acidic/tart flavors.

The problem is, Americans have been trained to only appreciate something that's high in sugar or salt. And yogurt has been turned into a medium for delivering sugars and artificial flavorings.

I used to enjoy frozen yogurt that actually tasted like plain yogurt, with a good bit of acidity. I can't find that anymore in stores.

I prefer kefir to yoghurt. And without added sugar. It makes a great breakfast.

And keep that stinky bacon away from me.

Whatevs. I love buttermilk, and I love yogurt. It's not as good if it's loaded down with sugar and gelatin and other stabilizers, but it's okay even then. When it's fresh and either plain or with just a little bit of sweetener, it's great stuff.

Au contraire mon frre!
I actually eat certain yogurts indeed for their tastiness. And I am fully aware that the nutritional value of these type is actually horrible. I therefore eat them more as a dessert and don't even imagine in the slightest that they are anything close to being good for me.
The Noosa brand yogurts are like eating a liquid form of cheesecake. Lots of fats and sugar. Delicious stuff.
The actual "good for you" types of yogurt are nothing anyone would eat and they really don't sell much. A plain unsweetened low fat yogurt is indeed nothing anyone would pretend is delicious.

Colombo frozen Yogurt used to be of this sort. I see that it's still being sold. Unless they've changed their recipe, this might satisfy you.


I have to disagree about Americans only eating salty or sweet things. I appreciate a variety of flavors. But yogurt ain't one of them.

I agree with the OP as far as Greek yogurt goes. Feh.

However if we're going to prevent advertisers from claiming their food products are tasty, the entire economy will collapse and millions will starve.

Yogurt makers are far from the worst offenders. What about wine sellers who declare their stuff has overtones of apple, plum, quinoa, marjoram, nutmeg, sawdust and spaniel ear clippings?

I agree with this assertion. I like plain, full-fat Greek yogurt because it's thick, tart and not sweet. Most yogurts taste like something you would have for dessert. I don't want that for breakfast or even lunch. Sometimes I like to throw a handful of blueberries and some walnuts in. That provides some additional flavor without being too sweet.

The only way to make yogurt palatable is to load it up with sugar.

You would be wrong about that. Yogurt is delicious. It needs to be the full fat kind, not lowfat or nonfat. Fruit and sweetener ruins yogurt (bleah!). Get a bucket of Brown Cow Farms with the cream top. Dish yourself out a bowl. Stir some granola into it. Aaah!!

Huh, I detest yogurt, but it would never occur to me to think other people were lying when they say they find it delicious. (These "other people" include my nine-year-old nephew, who would have absolutely zero reason to say he likes a food if he doesn't.)

Astro Balkan yogurt is my favourite. Thick and tasty with 6% fat. I have yogurt and homemade granola for second breakfast at work every morning. I've been doing this for a couple of years and I still enjoy it. As I pack this and my lunch for work in the morning, I give a spoonful of yogurt to each of the dogs and have one for myself, it's so good.

I like the flavoured yogurt as well, and sometimes buy the snack size tubes to take as a treat for lunch, or just spoil myself and grab a whole tub. Black cherry fruit on the bottom greek yogurt is a total indulgence.

It's a nice bonus that yogurt has some health benefits, but I eat it because I like it, not because I think I should because it's good for me.

Wow. I love yogurt. It's the only cow milk product I eat. The only downside is that our African Grey loves yogurt also. He recognizes the container and demands his share. Some people find this disgusting, since I let him eat from my spoon and then I finish what he can't get.

Some people are more sensitive to certain flavors than others.*

To me, yogurt tastes overly sour.

* So don't go all "You've never had it made right.", "You're too picky an eater.", etc. Just accept that you aren't them and let it go.

I can see someone claiming that their yoghurt tastes like delicious, 100% yogurt with no sugar, salt, fruit, or other additives, without being deceptive. Then the customer would expect "delicious yogurt" flavor and not hints of delicious roquefort, delicious paprika, or delicious aubergine.

I would love to see a video of your African Grey chowing down on some yogurt. Does he verbally ask for his share?

But plain unsweetened yogurt, lowfat or not, is really more of a condiment or an ingredient than a dish. Dolloped onto a bowl of lentil soup, or spread on bread with salt and cilantro, or (guilty pleasure) blended with onion soup mix as a dip for veggies, and so on, it is delicious.

However, I agree that the people who are trying to treat various yogurt derivatives as "healthy"-but-just-as-yummy versions of cream derivatives, such as ice cream, custard, fromage blanc etc., are deluding themselves. Yes, I like the tangy taste of yogurt, but it doesn't really work as a sweet-cream substitute unless you mask the hell out of it with sugar and fruit.

He does not say "yogurt" (yet). He does say chicken wing, pistachio, grapes, cookies, and a few other food words. If I were to say "chicken wing" or "pistachio" right now he would get all worked up.

I made a lamb stew last week and served it with yogurt. Very tasty, like a stroganoff.

Nearly the entirety of South Asia finds yogurt delicious.

I think a post above got it right that Americans generally aren’t used to sour or tart deliciousness.

In America, yogurt is the greatest supermarket "health food" con of the last 30 years. Look at what "yogurt" people actually buy, it's practically ice cream.

Speak for yourself. I LOVE yogurt. Yoplait Whips are my favorite. I also miss their regular, plain old ordinary banana, but they don't make it anymore.

And frozen yogurt...oh my god. Sometimes I want it more than I do ice cream.

So if you don't like it, fine. More for me!

Daaaaw! He knows what's good. Thanks for that.

I love plain yogurt, because I like the nutty, tart taste. I also love buttermilk and drink it right out of the carton, since my husband hates it and I know I'll be the only one drinking it.

I like savory yogurt dishes like raita and tzatziki. Yum!

In fact, just a few days ago I had a tub of Fage 5 percent plain and it was absolutely delicious. Had I not been monitoring my sugar intake, I might have gotten one with honey or blueberry, but it was still delicious on its own.

What I don't get is vanilla flavored yogurt. That doesn't work for me at all. Yet vanilla is far more readily available than plain. Yuk.

My eight year old won't touch cookies, pie, cake, soda, candy or most other processed sweets. His exceptions are lemonades (as in actual lemonades, not Country Time stuff) and yogurt. Everyday is a yogurt when he wakes up and one when he gets home from school.

I knew a recently middle eastern family in hs and they were amazed people ate yogurt straight out of the container and it was flavored ect...

Apparently, in that area, its mainly used in cooking sort of like we use sour cream like in the dishes mentioned above ....

It's also pretty good as an alternative for milk with cereal- in particular granola and other cereals of that style go well with yogurt instead of milk.

Personally I like it. But then again, I'm one of those people who will drink buttermilk, so I suppose it's just one of those things that you like or you don't.

I don't think advertising is forcing us to live in a culture of lies. Perhaps people do find yogurt delicious unsweetened.

What is far more pernicious is the trend in advertising to make more and more commercials that are utterly disgusting such as the commercial that the OP talks about.

Since this involves the enjoyment (or lack thereof) of a food item, let's move this to Cafe Society (from IMHO).

(And as far as I am concerned, yogurt is just spoiled milk)

As someone who has been known to peel and eat a lemon like it's an orange I think I fall into the "enjoy acidic/tart" category.

But I can't stand yogurt. It tastes like decaying milk to me. If you like it - or even find it edible - good for you but every couple of years I try it again and yep, still hate it.

It is VILE. I'd just as soon mix sour cream with fruit than eat yogurt. I always hear "oh you'll like this kind". No. I even tried some recently that I was TOLD tastes "just like chocolate pudding". No. It tasted like rancid watery chocolate pudding. And I have tried it as a replacement for sour cream in cooking. It's the same awful taste, mixed with savory food.

I love acid. I love tart. I love sour cream! I do not love yogurt.

I like the tart flavor. I also like the sweetened fruit-flavored kind, but the plain, especially with bread broken into it is quite delicious. Chacun a son gout. I would never criticize you for not liking it, but leave me to my own.

Many birds do. Lots of calcium, to make strong eggshells.

I love yogurt but it's OK if you don't. However, it has to be REAL yogurt and not that gelatin-added stuff.

Is there anyone here who doesn't like cow's milk yogurt but likes those made with goat or plant-based milks? I'm not as fond of those.

I love acid. I love tart. I love sour cream! I do not love yogurt.
I have never liked ketchup, and can detect it in microscopic amounts in food. Interestingly, I love BBQ sauce, salsa, sriracha, etc. which contain many of the same ingredients as ketchup.

And I have never seen these yogurt flavors since this thread died. Someone else told me that they were probably marketed for people who like to make vegetable smoothies.
