Too Good To Be True

I discovered why Fiber One has so much less sugar than other yogurts - it has artificial sweetners. It helps to read the packaging. So, I am officially still on the hunt for the perfect 4 oz yogurt for school lunches. This is the brand Nick & I eat. I buy the plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I also package it in a small container with fruit or Agave to take to work. Nick likes the pre-packaged honey flavor. It's my favorite brand of Greek yogurt - they are not all created equally in terms of texture & flavor.
In case you were interested, here's how the company describes its product:
FAGE TOTAL Yogurt is 100% natural. It contains no added sweeteners, thickeners or preservatives. We do not use powder milk, powder cream or powder protein in FAGE, just raw milk, raw cream and live active cultures which come together for a naturally blissful taste experience. In line with our All Natural approach to yogurt making, our milk and cream supply comes from farmers who have pledged not to treat their cows with rBGH*. FAGE is an excellent source of protein due to its unique straining process. Vegetarians can eat FAGE TOTAL and is also suitable for diabetics, pregnant women and people on gluten-free diets. It can also be used to cook with in your favorite recipes since it will not separate in high heat. FAGE is pure, creamy and can be enjoyed without adding anything to it. It is simply delicious and nutritious.

The 5.3 oz peach flavor only has 16 g of sugar (vs. 28 for honey). That isn't too much higher than the 4 oz version I give the kids. You can also get a coupon HERE to try it out. I haven't been able to get the kids to embrace this yogurt yet, but maybe we'll get there.
