The Greeks do a lot of things right in life (ahem, like soaking their desserts in honey). It's no wonder that we are quick to adopt their olive oil-heavy Mediterranean diet and thick, custardy Greek yogurt. But the Greek yogurt craze has gotten out of control, friends, and we're not sure that it's a good thing.
We loved Greek yogurt when it made its way into our grocery stores and became a staple part of our breakfast. We even loved Greek yogurt when it found a spot next to ice cream in the freezer section. But now, Greek yogurt is showing up in places it has no business being -- like in our showers -- and we think it's time it just calms down. Not to mention, Greek yogurt is different from regular yogurt because it's been strained, removing excess liquid and giving it a thick, creamy texture. Once you combine it with high-fructose corn syrup and make a hard coating for a granola bar, you sort of lose that special quality. Are you with us?
