I buy a whole milk, unhomogenized yogurt, and the taste is just SO much nicer than any lowfat yogurt. It's so fresh and pleasant tasting, instead of just sour.
Yeah the whole "lowfat dairy is good for you" is just a crock of you-know-what cooked up by the dairy industry, because there's far more profit in skimming off the fat and then using it for more value-added products like ice cream and butter.
