Kroger's Carbmaster yogurt

This is the best lowcarb yogurt I have ever had. It is only 3 net carbs and nice and thick.

Did you read the ingredients list carefully? I bought some of that a few years ago, when I first started LC, and it turns out there was some extra stuff in there that I didn't want or need. I don't remember what right now, but it was significant.

Maybe they've changed the formulation - I do remember how good it was, and that I was disappointed!

Hi folks…
My wife and I both like em and buy them a dozen at a time (despite the fact I build our own high-fat yogurt).

These are quick-n-easy to just grab-n-snack.

Never tried them cause here in Cali we can't find any good LC stuff anymore.

Greek Gods makes a great one and very inexpensive too!

They are pretty good. My fav by far and I doubt I will ever buy anything else is the Greek yogurt (I think the brand is Greek gods) its really thick so I stir it up real good. Pkt of splenda and a handful of fresh blueberries...mmm can't beat it. Even better than Kroger carbmaster yogurt! Try it!

2b, you can get them here at Ralph's grocery stores (which is what Kroger is called in California.) Rather than saying Kroger on the label, they say Ralph's Carbmaster.

Although I LOVE the Carbmaster brand, I am up for trying new things. What are the carb counts for the Greek yogurt? I have looked at a few and found them too carby, for my plan.

Thanks,

Just to give an idea of how low-carb the full-fat FAGE Total is, a 1,000-gram / 35.2-ounce jug of it yields only 28 total carbs. I snagged one in Greece last month. Unfortunately, the kilo-sized ones I've seen only recently at Costco & Central Market just come in the FAT-FREE variety ... nonetheless, there's my foot in the door! In the meantime, what I call the 500-gram "FAGE minis" will have to suffice.

P.S: I'm in DFW, too.

Thanks for posting this! I will check my local Ralph's for them although, I am loving the Greek God's brand. So inexpensive and delish!

I tried several flavors. I liked the peach one because it had big enough chunks of fruit to tell what you were eating. However I was not a fan of the texture. It's the stabilizers and who knows what else they put in there that makes it have a funny texture. I think I will stick to my drained, full fat yogurt.

I didnt care for the peach one. Its like the peaches felt fake in my mouth. Almost like fruit cake fruit.

Yeah, the texture is a bit "different". I have to stir it up real good and sometimes I put a bit of heavy cream in it. I do like it but I wonder how much of it is that it is REALLY good and how much of my attitude is because FINALLY, I found something that fits in my plan and gives me a "dessert" thing. I never liked yogurt before lowcarb...

I am definatly going to try the greek god option.

Thanks for the info SugarFreeShiela.

I love my Greek Gods yogurt but the Carb master ones at Kroger are great. yes there is food starch (sugar) very little. Great for a snack or something different!

Greek gods yogurt is the best!! Thick and yummy!

I just tried Vanilla for the first time, it was great.

I think I may try putting one of these guys in the freezer for frozen yogurt...
