Yogurt is a great food and snack except for one thing – the sugar content of some can be as much as a Twinkie and some others cut the sugar but add artificial sweeteners.

Check the Nutrition Facts before you buy.   Check the ingredient list for the kind of artificial sweetener used.

For a sample of those yogurts that equal the sugar content of Twinkies in 2014, CLICK HERE.

These figures may have changed since then, however,  I am checking the next trip to the supermarket and hope the amounts of sugar have changed for  the better.  I plan to check some Greek varieties as well.  Stay tuned.
