I am writing to tell you just how screaming happy I am that I was able to save up and buy White Mountain Bulgarian Yogurt! I LOVE YOUR YOGURT! It’s a heavenly product. The best. It’s heaven in a jar. I love you guys at White Mountain. Keep up the good work.

Happy Valentine's Day

Ingredients:
3 level Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted (or vegetable oil)
⅔ c. White Mountain Foods Bulgarian Yogurt, strained
¾ c. feta cheese
1 egg (or egg substitute)
filo pastry sheets (6-7)
¼ tsp. baking soda

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. Put Feta cheese in a bowl and crumble it using a fork. Add the egg, strained Bulgarian yogurt and baking soda. Mix until all ingredients are well blended. Prepare a medium size cake pan by brushing bottom and sides with melted butter.

Place a clean kitchen towel on your counter or table top. Place one filo sheet onto the towel. Brush the exposed side of the filo sheet with melted butter, then spoon on small dollops of the feta mix. Once done, gently roll the filo sheet into a long tubular or sausage shape. Brush with butter a second time. Fit roll into the cake pan in a spiral shape following the edge inward. Continue filling up empty pan space and stacking rolls if necessary until feta mix is used up. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Scale up the ingredient amounts to make a deeper banista dish to serve more. Tastes great hot or cold!

So Good

I’m from the Netherlands, but I moved here four years ago when my twin boys were about to be born here in Austin. Back in the Netherlands, yogurt is popular; plain white yogurt is what I’ve been eating all my life. After moving here to the US, I’ve been trying to find something similar to Dutch yogurt, but almost all the yogurt here has been sweetened.Last week I was at “our HEB” on East 7th, and I found your huge 128 ounce jar of Bulgarian yogurt. I immediately bought two; my backpack wouldn’t fit more (I usually bike down 6th to the grocery store). The yogurt is soooooo good. SO GOOD. It’s like being back in NL [the Netherlands]. After four-and-a-half days, my sons and I half-finished one 128 ounce jar. Both my boys also love your yogurt. Thank you very much for your time, and thanks a lot for making really delicious yogurt! —Robert, Xavi, and Ethan

“Beyond ECSTATIC”

I love that your yogurt is fermented for 24 hours. I’ve been fermenting mine for 24 hours in my yogurt maker to get the most probiotics, lactose free, but yours tastes so much better! Plus, it’s nice to have this choice when I can’t make my own. —Ann

After moving to Southern California recently, I’m beyond ECSTATIC to find out that your beloved yogurt is sold at Lassens nearby. I used to buy it in San Antonio when I lived there many years ago. I can’t say enough about your yogurt. Thank you so much for making a healthy, quality product! —Sylvia
