Cream Top

I went to Whole Foods the other day to stock the fridge at the office with some yogurt so I wouldn't have to remember to bring one everyday. Well, since I usually go to Safeway and get the Lucerne Fat Free stuff, I forgot what real yogurt could be like.

Being at Whole Foods there is of course no Lucerne. So I was going to have to get one the FOOFY "Natural" brands, that cost sooo much more. Brown Cow yogurt was on sale so I picked up a few. I noted the "Cream Top" and figured that since the fruit is on the bottom, this was just the Marketing Depts way of making a selling point of the fact that all the fruity goodness is on the bottom, and the boring cream was ontop. BOY WAS I WRONG!

Cream Top... means a LAYER OF CREAM (as I knew from Cream Top Milk), but who ever thought that Cream Top Yogurt meant there was a layer of Yogurt made from CREAM on the top. Not I!

Oh it is heavanly. It's like a thin layer of Mascarpone, which is like a richer, but not as flavorful cream cheese. I know there are people like myself that are perfectly happy with a knife and a block of cream cheese for dinner (maybe with a few crackers scattered about, so you don't totally gross out the neighbors as they walk by and see you on your couch in front of the TV chowing down on a brick of fat). So this was quite a happy finding as I sat down to my ho hum breakfast of yogurt and tea.

This discovery makes my dinner even more exciting. Especially since I'm stuck working until about 11pm tonight and all I have here is Yogurt and Cheerios. YEA for me, for planning ahead and buying multiple days of yogurt.

(note to self: buy more yogurt tomorrow)

Have you tried russian yogurt? They have that at Whole Foods, too. I'm afraid to try it, because I'm a chicken at heart, but I know someone who swears by it. Will you try it and tell us how it is?
