I’ve been eating Fage nonfat Greek yogurt every day with fruit for years. This year I started hearing a lot about Siggi’s Icelandic style nonfat yogurt and how much better than Fage. On a recent trip to Whole Foods I saw Siggi’s so I grabbed a container to try.
Both of these yogurts are strained and thick, both have a smooth textures, both have very few and only natural ingredients, both have a bit of a yogurt tang. To be honest, when I added my farmers market raspberries and a bit of granola I couldn’t tell much difference. I think that Siggi’s was slightly thicker.
Here’s the big decider – price. Fage is already a splurge. I pay $2 per container of it and eat it every day. That’s $10/week not counting the fruit or berries or granola I add. I justify the expense because I love it so much and because it’s a very healthy way to start my day each morning. So, the fact that Siggi’s is about $0.70 more per container.. that’s a deal breaker for me.. especially when I couldn’t tell a dramatic difference to begin with.
