Cabot Creamery Cooperative has gone Greek for yogurt.
CABOT, Vt. Cabot has launched and already stocked shelves with its unique recipe for Greek Style yogurt. Its rich taste and thick consistency is a recipe for success, Cabot said. The company, already dubbed “Makers of the World’s Best Cheddar” hopes it will take on a new title as “Makers of the World’s Best Greek Style Yogurt.”
“Our new line of Greek Style Yogurt melts in your mouth—better than ice cream if you want rich, luscious taste,” said Richard Stammer, Cabot Creamery Cooperative’s chief executive officer. “The family farmer-owners of Cabot Creamery Cooperative have produced another world-class product. And, like our award winning cheeses, our Greek Style Yogurt is in a class all by itself. We’re proud of that and we think our customers will agree.”
Available now only at area Publix Super Markets, the retail food chain currently stocks Cabot Greek Style Yogurt in the following six-ounce flavors of peach, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla and tropical fruit. The chain also carries Cabot’s Plain Flavor Greek Style Yogurt in a 32-ounce size.
Yogurt is one of the oldest known foods, dating back more than 4,500 years. Their concentrated nutrients include high levels of calcium, protein, vitamins B6 and B12, and magnesium, all of which promote intestinal health and help cure bacterial infections.
While the health benefits of Cabot Greek Style Yogurt are extensive, this style of yogurt trumps traditional American-style with its cooking advantages.
“Cabot’s Greek Style Yogurt has countless uses as an ingredient in recipes,” said Cabot’s celebrity Chef of Staff, Jon Ashton. “It won’t separate when it is baked and can easily be substituted for cream. Best of all, it can be used in so many wonderful recipes. It’s great with honey and nuts, makes a great smoothie and it makes an amazing chiffon or topping for healthy desserts.”
