Bucky does the yogurt test
This is guest poster Bucky's idea of a fair test. Bucky, no human being would like unsweetened yogurt on pumpkin pie. The idea alone makes me gag. To be fair, I want you to cut up a ripe nectarine and mix it with a quarter cup of blueberries. Put the Fage yogurt on top of that, and I guarantee you'll like it. Here's Bucky. EL
So, last week Elizabeth piqued my interest (and that of PBC Rob, Bourbon Girl and Stacy) with her comparison of Fage yogurt to whipped cream. I like whipped cream — the real stuff, not Cool Whip or the kind that squirts out of a can. (Although the kind that squirts out of a can is fun, in its own way, and that’s a point in its favor.) ...
I fixed us each a slice of pumpkin pie, complete with “whipped cream” (which was, in fact, Fage Total 2% plain yogurt) while Mrs. Bucky settled into the big, green La-Z-Boy and turned on “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here."
Ha ha ha…she didn’t turn that on, of course. “I’m a Celebrity…” isn’t on Sunday nights. She turned on the Lakers-Magic game.
No, really, she did. I married well. Kaikala has four brothers, all of them accomplished athletes in their day, and she learned all about sports early in life. That’s one of the things that attracted me to her in the first place.
I handed Kaikala her slice of pie. The Magic got a turnover and started a fast break. Without taking her eyes off the game, she took a little dab of “whipped cream” on her fork and then took the point off the slice of pie and put both in her mouth.
One of the other things that attracted me to Kai — the very first night I met her — was the cute way she wrinkles up her nose and squints her eyes when she tastes something she doesn’t like.
“What is THAT???” she asked, with VERY squinty eyes. “Yogurt? Why on earth would you put yogurt on my pie?”
Myth: Busted. Fage yogurt tastes like yogurt.
