Nope. @ Costco you'd be lucky to get less than half a container-a spoonful maybe.
They handed out two full containers (100 ml each) to each person @ TOD.
So? I can buy 200g of greek yogurt for about $1.50. Not worth standing in line for. Astro yogurt isn't the best anyway...I have much better greek yogurt at home.

I don't really care what you think. I care that I got two not just one. They insisted that I feel free to come back again and enjoy more...but I'm not that bad...
A coupon for a dollar off was also offered. That was also good. Every dollar saved helps.

Went there today, every one around me was either eating the roasted corn on the cob or chicken souvlaki on a pita, the need for these $5 samplings to otherwise be paying more on a regular day is a joke. The lineups for the free yogurt was by far the most pathetic thing I've ever seen. It just goes to show you that people aren't into trying new things even for $5, I would rather have my pita on a calm Wednesday afternoon than have to suffer walking through the massive heathing of people breathing next to you.

The only reason I attended was because the in-laws wanted to go I was already on the way. If I wanted free samples of Yogurt I would head to Costco, seriously I cannot get over that. /rant.

Don't you know? Torontonians love standing in lines.

But seriously, yogurt isn't something I would want free samples of in an outdoor event where refrigeration is questionable.

Well he is kinda right, yogurt is a dairy product you kinda need to keep it refrigerated unless you plan on consuming it immediately. I bet they weren't even offering a spoon or napkins, right?

You clearly care since you responded to my post. Also, best new product is not the same as best product ever. Marketing gimmicks get you as usual.

Why on earth would you assume this? Of course they had spoons, napkins and refrigerators. It's 2016, not 1916.

You said you were there, but I guess you had your nose too far up into the air to notice all the people "trying new things".
Let them know that it is I, Aziz Hamid!

Yes I was busy walking versus waiting in long lineups.

Starts tonight and ends on Sunday.

I eat souvlaki year-round regularly, but I'm really craving the BBQ quails right now. I may have to go tonight because I'll probably be too busy the rest of the weekend.

Will they know if I attended this year or not? Look below... LOL

WTH? $5 for a corn on the cob??? Who pays that??? WHY??? There's corn for $2 just outside @ Donlands station and inside the event at least one place still had $2 corn on the cob.
I also saw one other place with $3 corn but what makes the $5 booths worth that much???
...and I thought $4 was bad last year!!!!
This was a complete waste of my time this year. Can I have the last few hours of my life back please? Thanks.

lol calm down...if you don't want $5 corn, don't buy $5 corn. Apparently other people will though.

This festival has been a shitshow for years. If you want to see a good food festival, go to Taste of Buffalo...it's the 2nd largest food festival in the U.S. I spent $15 there this year, and ate so much that it covered both lunch and dinner.

Definitely worth the road trip. Lots of free parking in downtown Buffalo as well on the weekend.
