    Who doesn't love boysenberry yogurt?

    It's a favorite of mine. Haven't seen it on the supermarket shelves in
    awhile.

    Fill a half cantelope melon with some and totally enjoy!

    I don't buy flavoured yogurts anymore. I admit that I had trouble eating
    plain yogurt straight, but I always found the flavoured stuff to be
    too sweet and full of crappy fruit. I get now by only plain yogurt and
    add a little honey or fruit to it.

    Dave,

    Can you get boysenberries up in your "hood?"

    I could probably wander a million miles without a boysenberry in sight.

    BUT I've been wrong before!

    If you can buy decent jam (Trader Joe's is not too expensive) adding it
    to plain yoghurt is successful. They've got quite decent raspberry,
    blackberry, apricot and cherry. It's useful for Greek yoghurt that does
    not have the range of flavors that Yoplait, for example, sells. I have a
    weakness for their white chocolate/raspberry but I don't think I'll ever
    be able to make it with Greek yoghurt :-(

    My wife said that she saw them for sale in a local grocery store last
    week. I have seen them myself, but can't remember when or where.

    Yes you have lol

    I am not discounting the possibility that boysenberries would be good
    on yogurt. I often eat yogurt with fruit. I just don't get fruit
    flavoured yogurt. It is always disappointing. The only one that I could
    count on being acceptable was peach. I just like it a lot better when I
    use real yogurt and real fruit.

    Buy jam??? I make my own.
    I have grown accustomed to the tartness of regular yogurt and prefer to
    have it with a little fruit or a drizzle of honey. I have not grown so
    fond of the tartness that I eat it straight in any amount.

    My wife has a small bowl of yogurt almost every morning. She usually
    puts some frozen fruit in a bowl and adds yogurt then lets it sit and
    thaw for a while. That is about as sweet as yogurt needs to be for my
    taste.

    I'm sure your home-made jam would surpass any store-bought stuff! A
    while ago, when having implants inserted I was on soft food for a week.
    My breakfast involved putting a banana, a cup of yoghurt and a half cup
    of All-Bran in a food processor. It was surprisingly good but I have not
    been tempted to repeat it since.

    IMHO, plain yoghurt, especially Greek style, is quite edible but I
    prefer it flavored Indian style as in a Raita.

    Dave,

    I was just humoring Cindy's "Red has always been my favorite flavor."
    statement.

    I've never destined red as a flavor! <VBG>

    When I was in Sweden last summer summer yogurt was standard breakfast
    fare. They use it with cereal instead of milk. Even better was their
    keffir, which was only slightly fermented and had a consistency of very
    thick cream.

    I always buy the Balkan style, very thick and a little sweet. I prefer
    to get the plain because I can add whatever fruit I need and can also
    use it for tzatziki or for marinades. I don't see much point in having a
    variety of yogurts in the fridge, especially since I find most of the
    flavoured yogurts to be way too sweet.

    Not boysenberry yogurt, but one of my favorite memories of childhood was
    walking to the local ice cream shop every Friday summer evening with my
    grandparents to get boysenberry sundaes which we would take to Ellis Lake in
    Marysville and enjoy by the lake. Then we'd feed the ducks and stroll
    around the lake. The ice cream shop was a mom & pop, not a chain.

    Those were the days, my friend. <nostalgic sigh>

    And this isn't either, but there is the most fantastic recipe for a
    boysenberry pie in Chez Panisse Desserts, by Lindsey Shere. It is
    very simple, but oh so very, very good. I made it once, for a friend.
    Needless to say, most of it disappeared within the first hour.
    Supposed to serve more than 4 people, but if you are a boysenberry
    addict, it *might* serve 2.

    Sad to say, I can't find boysenberries here, even at the height of
    their season. I so miss them. I think when and if I get back to CA
    this year (crossing fingers and everything else), I will have a
    boysenberry fest.

    TammyM,

    I can appreciate the good old days. We used to get treated to go to
    "Greens" a little corner store in the middle of nowhere on the outskirts of
    New Hope, PA for laces of red licorice and candy buttons. Yogurt was a
    thing of the future!

    Best,

    Andy
