TJ’s Greek-Style Mango Yogurt
Unlike TJ’s Greek-Style Honey Yogurt, this Apricot Mango flavor contains no trans fat. Tastes better too with real chunks of fruit. Has more total fat, but less saturated. And let me repeat: no trans fat. Much less cholesterol (80 mg vs 45 mg) and only slightly more sodium.
This is not an organic product, but Trader Joe’s only uses milk from cows not treated with recombinant bovine somatotropin, so I feel good about consuming this. Doesn’t it look great?

My advice: if you’re in front of the yogurt shelves at Trader Joe’s, ignore the Honey variant and grab the Apricot Mango flavor! Read the label — the yellow and orange colors of the containers are similar.
