Why the name Thomakis?
How do you pronounce it, anyway?

How come when I enter my postal code, it doesn't let me choose a pickup or delivery slot?
This means one of two things! For pickup, this means that we've sold out of all our pickup slots for the week. For delivery, it means we're either sold out our delivery slots, or you are outside of our delivery zone.

How long does your yogurt last?
We suggest consuming your yogurt within 12 days of receiving it.
What makes your yogurt better?
Our yogurt is not only nutritious, it’s as smooth and creamy as you’ll ever taste. It’s hand-crafted and super fresh because we make it in small batches, which is also why it’s indulgently close to ice cream. We do it the traditional way: hanging, with no filler, additives or preservatives. But even in its simplicity, there is sophistication. And that comes out through our infusion of culinary flair and our daring to be different with every flavour and batch.
Define “traditional Greek yogurt.” How is it different?
What about the glitzy health benefits?
Here are the highlights: Protein: Protein revs the metabolism and helps us regulate appetite, signaling to our brains we are sated. Greek yogurt is chock-full of it—about 10.5 grams of protein per 100 grams!
Nutrients: Hard to believe, but yogurt’s got just about everything the body needs nutrient-wise: half (49%) of your daily calcium intake for strong bones and teeth, plus vitamin B and riboflavin for a healthy heart.
Immune booster: The jury’s still out, but experts indicate that eating yogurt regularly can make your immune system stronger, thanks to its trace minerals, like zinc, magnesium and selenium. And the probiotics yogurt contains can reduce inflammation and aid healthy digestion.

How should I enjoy it?
Why don’t you make vegan or dairy-free yogurt (yet)?
But for now, we’re starting small. That said, our brown sugar and oat crumble is gluten-free. It’s fair to note that some of our lactose-intolerant customers have told us they can actually eat our yogurt, though it’s made with cow’s milk, without any issues. While that might not be the case for everyone, we wonder if that could be due to the absence of fillers and chemical additives in our yogurt. Short answer: stay tuned!
