Is It Just Me, Or Is Greek Yogurt Insanely Expensive?
I don't even know why I'm taking a time out from my fishing blog to talk about this... actually I do know... it's because I'm annoyed and had some strange epiphany. I love Greek Yogurt, and I think a lot of you out there do too. It's rich and creamy with a texture of pure liquid silk, it has unlimited cooking applications and possibilities - and despite all of this - it's even good for you! But why the hell is it so expensive?
Is Ancient Alien Technology Used In The Manufacturing Process?
When I can get a gallon and a half of already overpriced gasoline, for LESS than what it costs me purchase a quart of Greek yogurt - then that tells me this stuff is just simply overpriced. All the major U.S. players like Chobani, Fage, & Oikos all charge close to $5+ dollars a descent sized container of their take on Greek yogurt. I think that is just plain crazy for a product I consider to be pretty simplistic. Is there something I'm missing? Is there some kind of ancient alien technology used in the manufacturing process? Am I wrong about where it's made? Is this stuff not made in the U.S, but rather imported from Greece to my hometown... then I could justify the astronomical price.
Am I In The Wrong Line Of Business?
Should I be making "bath-tub Greek yogurt," and get in on the action? I don't know, maybe I'm way out of line here... but I'm not independently wealthy, nor do I believe my reading audience to be, so it really burns me up when something I love and is so simple, costs so much.
