I always liked Oikos until I tried Chobani Apple Cinnamon... OH MY GOD. NEVER GOING BACK. I could eat it every day. I work at my local Wal-Mart and it's sold out. I checked the handheld and the warehouse is sold out, too. I wanted to cry.

Fage has significantly more protein than Chobani and a lot more than the popular brands, so you get more for the calories, which if you are restricting calories, is the way to go.

Chobani's -----------> two thumbs up :)

Neither. Fage is awesome. Especially the Fage 2% honey greek yogurt.
April 5, 2012 7:05 PM
They are both pretty good and way better than the store brand.
April 5, 2012 7:05 PM
I buy which ever one is on sale at my grocery store smile there are certain flavors of each brand I like, so when they are 10 for $10 i stock up!

I like both Chobani and Oikos although I prefer the stonyfield Oikos rather than the dannon. I also like the Chobani Champions for dessert, they are whipped up more like a mousse. Oh and just had Adonia frozen greek yogurt bars, those things are 75 calories and heaven on a stick!

Fage, for sure. Currently on sale at my local Jewel store for $1 each.
Next up: Chobani. The Oikos.

I started w/Oikos then worked my way to Chobani & then Fage. Ultimately I like Fage the best, plus it's lower in sugar (and sugar can be controlled by choosing how much of the fruit to mix in.)

Chobani definitely. It tastes awesome.

Plus, some of the Oikos flavors contain carmine - a.k.a BUGS. Crushed up bugs for coloring. Google it. So nasty...

Hi there,

I have been seeing commercials on Tv saying that people prefer the Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt over
Chobani Greek Yogurt and I just wanted some opinions before I tried it.

I never liked Yogurt period until I joined MFP and learned about Chobani Greek Yogurt and so far its the only one
that I can eat even after trying a few others. With that being said, it is a little pricey at $1.19 each and I eat 1 a day
and I have been seeing commercials on TV for the Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt and just wanted to see what people thought
about it in comparison to Chobani.

I have heard of Fagi, At least I think thats what its called but I have never tried it, In Walmart they carry that brand with some fruit in a side cup instead of mixed in. The only place I can find Chobani is at Krogers.

Thanks :)


Please read all labels before you decide. This is very important! I am from Europe and was amazed to learn that most yogurts here are stuffed to the gills with unnatural fillers like gelatin and/or pectin etc.

Fillers give the yogurt a grainy taste. They are also loaded with sugar! Like natural milk - which should be the basis of a good yogurt - there should be no more than about 6 grams of sugar in your yogurt.

Personally, I prefer the greek Fage yogurt. No fillers, and only 6 grams of sugar! Fage comes in small, medium and large tubs. It also comes in full-fat, 2% and 0% fat. I am in the southeast and buy it at Kroger or Publix. I found that buying the largest tub will give me a portion every day for less that I would have spent on the individual cups.

I do not like the fruit cups as they add back the sugar I have been avoiding. One exception though; the Fage with honey. Once in a great while I can't resist it... Forgive me *lol* Call me strange, but I eat my yogurt with cereal, like most people eat cereal with milk. Doesn't get soggy and I like the crunch.

So, there you have it... my 2 cents worth.

Fage! Love that stuff! It has a nice mild flavor. Second to that I like Chobani. I usually get it plain and add a little sweetener and fruit, or just fruit depending on what kind.

I prefer the Dannon Oikos. Key lime is my FAVORITE, it eat one almost everyday. I did pick up a thing of Chobani Strawberry/banana yesterday though and plan to try it tomorrow.

Fage 2% is my favorite (with honey, with fruit, in recipes... I can find a million uses for that stuff)
Then Chobani or Cabot Greek in second.
Liberte is good for flavors, but they don't have a plain in Greek (at least, not that I've seen)
After that.... it's all desperation.

i buy the plain chaboni or Fage in big container and then take ziploc or rubber made containers the 1/2 cup or cup size and measure it all out ( i usually do this on sunday to get ready for the week i usually do 1/2 cup in each. Then I went to walmart ( can get it anywhere) i sugar free preserves i have a range of flavors. I walmart brand and smuckers in more flavors. I then measure 1 tbsp into each and then mix if not sweet enough i put a packet of truvia in it you end up with a snack or part of a meal for about 75 cals. The preserves are only 10 cals. I also have use torani coffee syrup sugar free in them also and thats yummy as well but i like the fruit better,

Fage was the best I've tried so far. I buy the plain and add my own honey. Also, Atlanta Fresh Greek Yogurt is awesome. I don't know if it is available anywhere else. YUM!

I am so jealous of all of you! My local Walmart does not carry Chobani :( The best deal I've seen is 2 for $3 at Food Lion.

Even so, I will pay whatever for my beloved Chobani. Never tried any other brands of greek yogurt.


You must be in VA. Sam's club has Chobani with the fruit on the bottom. I forgot how much the pack is but they come out to be a $1 a piece. If you can get someone to take you to the comminssary they have them for 99 cent a piece also

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Fage 0% and add my own frozen or fresh fruit, Kashi Go Lean Crisp and a tablespoon of milled flaxseed

I eat regular and greek yogurt everyday, and dannon is my least favorite brand. I think it tastes cheap. lol Just my opinion, though! Fage and yoplait 2x protein are my favroite kinds. =]

I tried the Chobani again today and didn't like it at all. I prefer the thickness of the Dannon and the color of the Chobani fruit threw me off. I compared the sugar in the Straw/ban Chobani to the Key Lime Dannon and they are the same.

I've never seen the Fage but I'll try it if I find it.

I think Chobani is disgusting. I actually didn't touch yogurt for a month after that until I decided that I really wanted to like greek yogurt. I bought Oikos Fruit on the bottom and it's been love ever since. love
