WINNERS: Rachel, Kristin, Sue and Tracy!
Siggi’s makes Skyr. Siggi’s Skyr is the brain child of Siggi Hilmarsson. Seems Siggi was homesick and like any good foodie decided to make “food” that would make him feel at home. Home is New York State but “home/real home/birth home” is Iceland. Read more about the brief history of Siggi’s : here
Skyr : is an Icelandic cultured dairy product, similar to strained yogurt. It has been a part of Icelandic cuisine for over a thousand years. It is traditionally served cold with a topping of sugar and cream. (thank you on-line dictionary)
Here’s how I came to fall in love with this “yogurt/skyr”…and I mean deep head over heels in love with it! At a lovely and absolutely freezing cold JULY Lacrosse Tournament in Illinois the girls and I stopped at a Chez Target to kill a little time. Note I am not a huge Target shopper. It’s not that I don’t like their stuff….it’s that I like their stuff too much. You need a pound of pasta and you leave the store with 20 bags and usually no stinkin’ pasta! Anyway, while killing time, I was looking at their yogurt selection, yes I am weird like that. It’s always good to know what they carry in grocery stores across North America! Doesn’t everyone do that? And there it was: Siggi’s skyr. First off, since y’all know I am a HUGE visual person the packaging alone caught my attention. Simple, clean and fresh….that’s all good! Good job with the packaging marketing people! Then I saw the flavors. Vanilla, yum yes a classic! Orange & Ginger (aren’t they the same thing…LOL….get it…people with red/orange hair are called gingers….OK never mind my brain is not right!) Mango & Pineapple! and then…..COCONUT!!!!! OH YES! Sold Sold Sold.

Then the taste test! Love. That’s what it tasted like. I am not kidding. Quit laughing. It’s true. This stuff is deeeeeliiiiiiicious! It’s not what you would expect, because I was thinking Greek Yogurt, but it’s creamier, cleaner tasting and softer flavoring than a greek yogurt. Also a bit more tart…like me!
This is the some of product Siggi’s offer. I have to say I have tried them all and it’s ALL GOOD! So good in fact it has made me a more frequent Chez Target shopper….which says a lot! I like to use the drinkable Skyr called filmjölk in my smoothies. It’s so perfect, makes them smooth and creamy.
