Today's featured item is found in the dairy aisle of most Whole Foods market locations: Wallaby's Organic Yogurt made in the "down under" style (a.k.a. on the Australia tip, yo). While designer yogurts promising optimized digestion or a more intangible kind of inner peace have quickly populated the refrigerated retail shelves, few are worthy of special distinction.
Since my personal trainer wants me eating a little protein every couple of hours, I have been on a yogurt binge—ravenously sampling new brands and flavors to acquire the ultimate yogurt experience.
Lately, it's been two main contenders: Wallaby's Organic Lowfat Banana Vanilla Yogurt (pictured above) and Liberte's Lowfat Six Grains Yogurt in Pear. Both are sublimely mild and silky smooth. But while Liberte has the texture perk of whole grains like barley mixed in, Wallaby's wins on sheer comfort food points.
If you frequent a Whole Foods, do yourself a flavor favor and pick up one or both of these beneficial bovine offerings.
Until next time on Konsumer Korner, save room for seconds!
