An epic fail snack and finally finding Chobani

So being here in the middle of a wheat field, it isn't exactly easy to find interesting snacks that aren't your run of the mill Doritos or Triscuits. It's perhaps even harder to find snacks that are organic, healthy and tasty, so I went to my fantastic Moscow Co-Op to try and find a suitable replacement for salty, unhealthy tidbits.


I found some interesting Brown Rice Snaps, and decided the Tamari Seaweed flavor was just provocative enough to complement the homemade hummus and Sicilian olives I had in my fridge. With a watering mouth, I sat down to watch Gilmore Girls with my loot, and with an excited hand I dipped my first snap into the hummus and.....gagged. Two more bites confirmed it--these were perhaps the grossest thing I had ever tasted.



My dogs liked it.































There was one wonderful outcome of my trip to the Co-Op, and that was finding Chobani yogurt. I had been hearing good things about Chobani for awhile, but it simply isn't easy to find a New York-based product out here. Imagine my surprise when I found Chobani's fruit on the bottom strawberry yogurt! I think I might be in love...

The peach and blueberry are good too. Do you have any BJ's by you? I get Chobani by the case at BJ's.

That's a good idea. I like this yogurt so much that I might order by the case. No BJ's around here; that would be too sophisticated for dear ol' Pullman ;) I've ordered Rachel's by the case from the Co-Op in the past, so I think I might do the same with Chobani.

Have you ever taken the unsweeted Chobani and hung it overnight in cheesecloth to make lebnah? Toss in some chopped cilantro, walnuts and garlic and it's the most popular cracker spread I've ever served at a party. So. Good.

Great idea, Melissa. I really want to try that soon. Usually I drain yogurt to make paneer, so this would be an excellent change of pace.
