    We buy yogurt in either 32 or 64 oz containers. Usually, it is cheaper per oz.

    Divide it out by ounce. Sometimes the store price ticket it even had it by ounce. Around here regular price and most times the sales price is better for the big container for us. If the small ones are on sale and I have a good coupon then the small ones usually work out better.

    Well, that depends on how often you will eat it... and how.

    If you don't eat it everyday, the big ones can go funky before you finish it.

    If you don't like yours plain, it may cost less for the smaller flavored ones than the big ones that you have to add things to.

    For me, the smaller ones are better because I don't like the plain or even vanilla... I eat the whipped ones (when I do buy it). For cooking, we get the big yogurt at the Indian market, it's cheaper than the mainstream grocery.

    The bigger containers AND you don't have as many of those little plastic cups adding to the landfill.

    Depends on if you send them with lunches and /or if everyone likes different flavors. I buy both.

    I buy the largest available container of Dannon Fat-Free Plain yogurt. I flavor it up myself, it can go sweet or savory depending on what you add to it.
