Russell Crowe's Icelandic Souvenir is a New Addiction to 'Skyr'
Russell Crowe has a new addiction. It's called "Skyr" and, though it may sound scandalous, Skyr is actually just Iceland's traditional yogurt which Crowe discovered while filming Noah there last month. Now that he's back in Australia, it seems Crowe's in crisis and having a hard time finding his new favorite food.
"I seem to have left Iceland with an addiction to Skyr...can you buy it anywhere else in the world?," Russell recently tweeted.
Without Skyr, Russell had to settle for plain old FroYo in Sydney yesterday afternoon after having lunch at Nando's Restaurant.
He may have better luck finding the yogurt when he returns to New York this week to continue shooting Noah. There are several stores around the U.S. that sell siggi's, one popular brand of Skyr. To find a store near you, visit their site.
Watch out Fage and Chobani! With Crowe's endorsement, Skyr just might broaden its horizons beyond breakfast tables of Iceland.
