Recently, siggi's provided me with the opportunity to try more skyr as well as their filmjolk so that I could introduce these awesome products to you! I have now developed a bit of a craving for skyr so, siggi's is always at the top of my list!
While spending the holidays away from his home in Iceland, Siggi Hilmarsson dug up some traditional recipes from his family for skyr. (In fact, skyr has been a staple of the Icelandic diet for 1,000 years!) He whipped up some skyr to help him handle his homesickness. From there, siggi's yogurt was born and the US was introduced to this special taste of Iceland. Siggi's skyr is made in New York, Siggi's new home. Siggi uses milk from grass-fed cows from family farms in New York. The cows are growth hormone free.
Siggi's skyr is made from all natural ingredients. It is even sweetened with agave nectar as opposed to some corn syrup concoction as in some other yogurts. That is really appealing to me because I tend to avoid flavored yogurts due to all of the artificial junk thrown into them.
Just from the look of the container, you can tell that you are about to eat a special product. The plastic yogurt container is surrounded by a paper label that can be removed to recycle the two pieces separately. Nice!
Both products are good products and I am so happy to be able to share them with you! Thanks to siggi's, one lucky reader will win a gift certificate for one free cup of skyr and one free bottle of filmjolk. What a great way to try a new product!
