Having spent time in Russia, I can say with authority that Russian dairy products, particularly Russian yogurt, are actually quite delicious (and their sour cream is far superior to ours.) Why is the USOC spending money shipping yogurt over there, anyway?
This is like shipping low-grade US feedlot steaks to Argentina or prepackaged California rolls to Japan. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT.
Yes, I know it's all about Chobani's product placement, blah blah. I understand capitalism. It's just dumb in this case. If Annecy, France had won the bid for the 2018 Winter Olympics, I would be equally disgruntled if Kraft was paying a fuckton of money to ship Velveeta over to the French Alps for the US athletes to eat.
