    Depends on the situation:
    1. a yoghurt. ("would you like a yoghurt" meaning a single pot of yoghurt)
    2. pot of yoghurt (there's a pot of yoghurt in the fridge)
    3. yoghurt (there is (some) yoghurt in the fridge)

    they are fairly interchangable though.

    A yoghurt pot would be simply be the plastic pot on its own

    Oui, ça dépend…
    Si vous parlez de l’un de ces petit contenant de yaourt « Yoplait », par exemple, ici aux E.U. on ne dirait pas « pot » parc que « pot » signifie « marmite ». Ça serait plein de calcium pour un jour!!! :eek:

    Si vous me permettez, Tremblay, je pense que "Ce serait beaucoup de calcium pour un jour!" conviendrait mieux que "ça serait plein de calcium pour un jour".

    Au final, on ne sait pas comment se dit un "pot" de yaourt en américain...

    In Australian English we say a tub of yoghurt.

    Le petit pot serait a small tub ....

    What size are you talking about, Guilounette?

    For sizes around 0.5 to 1 kg, it's a tub here too.
    For the single-serving sizes, maybe 200 mL or so, I'd call it a cup, even if it isn't really a cup in US measurements.

    Bear in mind the french "pot de yaourt" is also a very small car, as the former Fiat 500, or whatever four-wheeled micro-car that can be legally driven without a driving licence. Such things are even, on some rare occasions, called "suppositoires à camions".
