Bloody tablet.

Yoghurt. Although it's just stuff with bits in.

Yoghurt. But where I live, everyone seems to spell it yogurt.

Bits? Bits of what?


I've always spelled it yogurt because that is how it is written on the packaging but with google more research, yogurt is the American spelling where yoghurt is the generally accepted proper English spelling.
It seems there was a bit of a to do when UK packagers dropped the "h" !

(Lovely sweet sugary petit filous...mmmm)

yoghurt yogurt

The spell checker on chrome doesn't like yogurt at all. It wants to change it to yoghurt. 'Yogurt' does look wrong to me. Although I've been looking at it so long that 'yoghurt' does now as well.

Petit filous is strictly fromage frais, isn't it? Not totally sure what the difference is. Maybe the culture?

Joghurt Yaourt

Never buy kefir; it is stringy, like when homemade yoghurt goes wrong.

I was quoting Dr Who, Kate.

But yoghurt is disgusting.

Yogurt yoghurt. Ooh I dunno my iPad doesn't spell check either. Ok quick google tells me yogurt is the American spelling and yoghurt the British spelling. I always spell it yoghurt.

CorusKate Sat 07-Jun-14 12:12:23

Ack, guess I can't call myself a fan any more, Norm grin

StrawberryMoose Sat 07-Jun-14 12:13:39're right. Realised that after I typed it although I have no idea what a fromage frais actually is so just call them yoghurts which I expect is not technically correct!


CorusKate Sat 07-Jun-14 12:17:37

I don't really get what makes yoghurt not a type of cheese anyway.

FaintlyMacabre Sat 07-Jun-14 12:18:24

Yoghurt. Pronounced yogurt.
My MIL says yog Hurt. I find this more infuriating than is entirely reasonable.

blondiebonce Sat 07-Jun-14 12:20:18

The more I look at this thread the stranger the word seems anyway...

KingfishersCatchFire Sat 07-Jun-14 12:20:29

Yoghurt. I am unreasonably annoyed that all manufacturers seem to spell it yogurt now.

Just looking at my delicious Onken fat free vanilla, it is spelled yogurt.
I love Rachel's organic raspberry, will look at every spelling on pots now!
