Anyone who has spent time in Greece will tell you the yogurt is spectacular -- the velvety smoothness, the tang just shy of mouth-puckering.
It's so thick and creamy you can leave your spoon stuck in it upright.
Don't start packing just yet. Total Greek Yoghurt has come to us.
Imported from Athens, our favorite version comes innovatively packaged with a separate compartment for honey (perhaps a nod to the traditional breakfast of sliced fresh fruit, yogurt and honey), or choose strawberry or cherry preserves.
There's also yogurt that's light, 2 percent, fat-free and made from sheep's milk.
The yogurt can be used as a substitute for sour cream in dishes that are heated because it won't curdle.
Total Greek Yoghurt is available throughout Europe. For more information, see www.totalgreekyoghurt.com. About $1.95 per five-ounce container.
