Do you still stir your yogurt before you eat it even if it's not the fruit on the bottom kind or the add to kind?

i don't know why but this came to me a few minutes ago. i opened an activia and started stirring it and then i stopped and thought, "why am i doing this? it's already evenly mixed" so now i'm thinking do you instinctively stir your yogurt before you eat it even if it's the already mixed kind?

  • Not really but I haven't bought fruit on the bottom yogurt in years. I sometimes stir greek yogurt, but that's more for the eye appeal. It's thick and creamy and watching it be stirred makes it look tastier, lol.

  • I do. Because some foods settle, and I'd hate to get a little river of liquid in my mouth in addition to the yogurt lol

  • Nope, because if you stir homemade yogurt too much it gets runny, it doesn't have the thickeners added that commercial yogurt have. I do fold in a bit of jam or fruit though.

  • Force of habit I think

  • Depends if there's any liquid floating around. If it's really fresh, then no, if there's a little liquid in it, then yes.

  • I'm with CABlonde, I stir almost everything even if it's pre-mixed. Usually i see just the tiniest amount of liquid when I open them from the food settling and I won't eat it till that liquid is mixed back in. Now it's such a habit I'd stir even if I didn't see the liquid and probably wouldn't even notice.
