Dan and the kids love yogurt, but we hadn’t bought any during this challenge. I’ve been told that it is pretty easy to make, but I am yet to look into it. Our favorite brands of yogurt are Mountain High and Noosa, but both are packaged in plastic tubs. Sigh.
While shopping at Whole Foods this morning, I decided to look for the elusive glass-packaged yogurt. I knew it had to be out there somewhere. To my delight, I saw a glass jar tucked between all of the plastic tubs of yogurt on the dairy shelf. Of course, I didn’t waste time in buying a jar. The brand is White Mountain and the label reads “Bulgarian Yogurt”. It comes in both whole milk and low-fat. Their yogurt is made with “no thickeners, stabilizers or added sugars and packaged in glass to avoid chemical contamination from plastics“. Perfect!
Once home, I opened the jar and took a taste. It was very tart, but adding a bit of honey mellowed out the flavor. I tossed in some granola and had a delicious snack for the kids. When the yogurt is gone, the empty jar will work perfectly as a bulk food container on my next shopping trip.
(note that the lid is plastic….can’t win them all)
