Kefir

You've walked by Kefir in the dairy case a million times. What is that stuff anyway? Turns out it's been around for a very long time. Remember those commercials about the Russians who ate yogurt and lived long lives? They probably drank Kefir, too. It originated in the Caucasus Mountains, and its history goes back 2000 years.

Kefir is a fermented milk, very much like yogurt. And it tastes a lot like liquid yogurt. So much so, that if you like yogurt, you'll probably like Kefir.

Lifeway Kefir contains 10 live and active cultures. Ten! Like yogurt it's supposed to be great for our digestive and immune systems. And because it's based on milk, it's a great source of calcium. It comes in all sorts of flavors like raspberry and blueberry. A very tasty way to get our daily calcium.

Five cupcakes!
