I got some skyr at whole foods today. I was trying to figure out what it was (if that's not the most not revealing "about" page...) but so far the only thing that I can think of is this...

It's cheese with the consistency of yogurt. Fat free and high in protein. ( Wiki'd it back when I first tried it -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skyr)

I love the stuff.

It will keep without refrigeration, making it a good high-protein food to take with you on a trip.

Whoa. I find that a little creepy.

LOL - "It's got electrolytes. It's what plants crave."
Their website is so less than helpful. First ingredient - skyr. ???

they had it in individual tubs as a parfait, with berries and stuff. it was in the refidgerator section next to the buffet thingy; i didn't check if they had any next to the yogurt.

Just to avoid any confusion here.
Take a look at this website http://www.skyr.is/ and you will get all the information you need about the product.
