Hamdi Ulukaya

Some of us have it for breakfast.

Some, like it before or after workout.

Most of ladies just love it.

Some of us prefer to have it sweet but others make a great sauce of it.

It goes great with fruits but also with some vegetables.

Very often You can find it on your pizza as a garlic sauce.

And if you are American, chances are that You see it almost everyday.

And You ? Have you ever eaten a Kurdish yogurt ?

Well, I am sure that You ate it much more often then You actually think 🙂
