Nostimo Greek Yogurt and Corn Dogs

Yes, I still make my own Greek yoghurt.
No, this is not a paid commercial.

Yesterday we shopped at Super Foods while my medicine prescription was being filled there in the pharmacy. Nice clean store that has a huge selection of namebrand products. Sad that it could not be located closer to our home.

Since we had to "waste" about 20 minutes waiting for the meds to be ready, we browsed. The produce and meats were fresh and beautiful, but we really did not need to purchase anything at the moment. So we kept looking around. 

Then I spied corn dogs. My hub has been saying for a couple of years now that he wanted to try "corn dogs." As I know how he dislikes cornbread and hot dogs, I never saw the need to buy them. Well, now two corn dogs are lying in our fridge waiting for him to try. (He doesn't like mustard or catsup either, so this should be interesting, don't you think?)

But the most interesting thing about Super Foods is the varieties of yogurt they have to offer. 

This morning I shoved my own homemade Greek yoghurt to the side and tried Nostimo Greek Nonfat Yogurt. 

Six ounces for $.85
0% fat.
I tried the plain kind, since I like my yoghurt pure and strained with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives
100 calories per 6 ounces (170g). 
Only contains cultured pasteurized skim milk with live and active cultures including Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidus, and L. Casei.
Is distributed by Topco Associates in Skokie, Illinois.
A Product of the USA.
I just found this anonymous comment on a review of Nostimo Greek Yogurt:
"I just opened my fat-free Meijer store-brand yogurt and the lid under the lid was Nostimo. So apparently Meijer re-brands the Nostimo as its own - or vice-versa."

I can find no Nostimo website!

My opinion: I liked  the yoghurt and would buy more if I lived near Super Foods. Tastes as good as my homemade variety.
  1. My favorite breakfast is good quality granola and excellent Greek yoghurt topped with honey.

Regular yogurt, Greek yogurt, or tubes of yogurt is something I just don't care for. I know how healthy yogurts are, but for some reason my palette does not care for it. When I see photos, as your yummy looking breakfast photo, I think how good it looks, and then I remember I just don't like the taste and texture.

Interesting about the yogurt. Maybe your husband could dip his corndog in ranch dressing?

Nothing better than Greek yogurt and honey! I cannot believe there is a person who has not had a corndog - how about honey on it?
