So, most of your are probably thinking "Wow, what a lam-O photo" but there is a logicial reason as to why I chose this picture for my "pic of the day!" My headline sums it up pretty nicely. I was walking through the grocery store today mulling over which yogurt to buy (this is actually an extremely difficult task for some) and I came across this pack of yogurt STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE FLAVORED DESSERT... I'm usually 100% scared to try yogurt like this because I think it has to be disgusting (I usually stick to Peach or strawberry banana), but I went ahead a bought it and it turned out to be AMAZING! so everyone go buy it and try it... it's YUMMY!
