Do You Eat Full-Fat Dairy Products?

Yesterday after tasting a luxuriously creamy yogurt, I wondered aloud what made it so good. Yum replied, "It's whole milk yogurt. The whole milk is what makes it amazing." I realized that I never have whole milk yogurt anymore!

It got me wondering about milk products: What are your preferences when it comes to them? I'm not talking about cheese and chocolate, which should always be full fat (duh!), but rather, dairy items like yogurt, sour cream, and milk. Do you avoid full-fat?

Nope I don't drink milk, and I use lowfat sour cream, cheese and ice cream.

I rarely consume dairy products and when I do, I get either one, depending on the selection and item.

the only diary products i consume are fat-free plain yoghurt (i hate the heaviness of full fat yoghurt) and cheeses which i don't care what the fat percentage if it's authentic

As I stated on the diet coke post, nothing fake for me or the lite, light, 50% less of whatever, sugarfree, fat free, etc. Low fat tasteless, and I'm a firm believer like HoneyBrown1976 everything in moderation and I do mean everything! To save everyone some $, buy the regular sour cream and cut it with plain yogurt or just water it down that what you're paying for.

Cheese is pretty much the only thing I buy full fat. I drink skim milk, eat nonfat greek yogurt, fat free sour cream. Oh, I use half and half in my coffee, because fat free half and half has HFCS in it, and I'd rather have the added fat in the small amount with my morning coffee or tea than the corn syrup. :shrug:

Sometimes. Mainly its whenever I have anything that's made of Goat's milk or Sheep's milk I get the full fat version since having either is a rarity. The full fat goat's milk yogurt or cheese is amazing as is the sheep's milk versions. With Cow's milk I opt for low-fat or non-fat.

Yes, cheeses.

Most of my dairy products are made with low-fat milk (except cheese!). I don't even like full-fat ice cream, I'd rather eat frozen yogurt. But I just LOVE whole milk in my coffee! Light and sweet, please. So bad for you, but oh-so-good....can't resist

I HATE the taste of full fat milk, but adore full fat sour cream. I don't understand the point of "lite ice cream"- why not just get a freaking popsicle??

If dining out. Also, in some baked goods/desserts, full fat just makes it taste better. ;p

Sometimes, if the mood strikes. I don't want to limit anything. I believe in moderation.

Yes, but only cheese and sour cream and I don't eat those all that often. I remember when my daughters were on milk bottles and I had to keep full fat milk in the refrigerator, I kept thinking that my cereal tasted so much better, because of the full fat milk. So delicious!

Yeah but only cheese and butter in small amounts. I can't stand reduced fat cheeses except for part-skim mozzarella and I think margarine is way worse for you then a bit of butter.

Always full fat cheese and ice cream, but fat free yogurt and milk.

only at a restaurant, like bluebell said (and it's a wonder that their sour cream always tastes way better than mine at home!) but I never buy full-fat at the grocery store...even the other day I was making a cheesecake and the recipe called for full-fat sour cream and I honestly had an internal battle with myself over whether or not to buy it, and I just couldn't! Even though a cheesecake is far from a diet food, I just had to get the low-fat sour cream and cream cheese.

If it's served to me in a restaurant, then yes, I'll eat it. However, I never buy full-fat dairy at the grocery.
