Trader Joe's Mocha Yogurt my Sweets for Sunday

I'm gradually getting back to having my Sunday "sweets", but I'm careful  to stay within my 24 g limit of sugar per day.  Yogurt is a favorite of mine, but since so many yogurts have added sugar I've had to resort to plain yogurt rather than the flavored varieties.  Trader Joe's Coffeehaus European style yogurt in mocha or chocolate has always been one that I liked.  But when I discovered there are 16g of sugar (that's 4 teaspoons) per container., I knew I would have to consider it a dessert for special occasions or a Sunday "sweet". 

Yesterday (Sunday) I savored every bite of this yogurt and I consider it my "sweets" for the week.
