Can we use a colander, some cheesecloth and strain 'regular' yogurt to make it thicker and creamier?

That's what I've had to do but the Greeks will claim there is no substitution. Sometimes, you just do what you gotta do when you live in a area where you can't get ingredients.

I have tried it here. The Dannon yogurt that has 8 grams of fat per cup strained out faster than the non-fat WalMart Great Value brand. I think I noted a little more creaminess in the Dannon, the Great Value was a little grainy is the only way I can describe it.

Well, I almost fainted she I saw thar WM had the Greek yogurt. Not "Greek Style" either. I found it to taste more tangy.

Ha Ha . . . we do get things eventually. Now I am liking that they sell guacomole in individual packets. It just keeps getting better, doesn't it?

Well, I try not to buy my foodstuffs from WM.......I am not particularly impressed with their fresh produce. Since that is what I purchase a lot of.........I shop my local Roundy's subsidiary for 99% of my food.

I like HyVee for produce and many times their prices are lower than WalMart.

Our local stores started selling both Greek and 'Greek style' yogurts :~)

Just saw this. Yummy stuff! Once you go Greek (the good kinds, not the crap), you never want to go back to anything else. I LOVE Greek Gods! What's the other one, senior memory...Phage (sp?) or something like that? All those probiotics, all that flavor! I hate to say this out loud, but I started buying Greek Gods at WallyWorld, which is great, because the monopoly grocery chain (yes, only one big regular grocery chain in a large city) in town offers only very limited variety of GG and even the health food grocery in town (even if I can go that far into town) keep running out of my fav! I won't touch any yogurt other than those two kinds. I'm having trouble finding a source of the only cereal I like in town...since the health food grocery in town changed hands and dropped my cereal. I'm even considering mail order on cereal...which really blows my mind...never thought I'd consider such a thing. As I get older, seems I get pickier. I already do mail order on my fiber bars (Gnu brand) just because it's not only convenient, but actually cheaper!

I'll have to see if my WM carries either of those 2 brands.
