Name That Yogurt!…No Really, Could You Please?

15 Oct

Ok, this is just a little post, and it’s written way earlier in the day then my normal posts – this feels so I need help from my American readers…or the more attentive Canadians lol.

Being in Canada I have spent my entire tv watching life inundated by American ads, this means there are many many times I see something advertised that I want to buy but can’t cause it’s not in Canada. No big loss generally but every now and then I cross that silly little border and get the chance to buy some of the stuff I’ve been wanting to try – this is happening tomorrow! 🙂

Tomorrow I am going to the states with some friends, after our lunch at Red Lobster (a restaurant I loooove but that isn’t in BC, sadness), and after our traversing the outlet mall (woohoo, cheap shopping!, not that I have money to spend there, double sadness), we are going to make a quick stop at a grocery store (not that I’ve told the other two this yet lol) so I can buy yogurt.

Yes, you read that right, I am going to the states and what do I want to buy? Yogurt.

It’s a specific kind of yogurt but for the life of me I can’t remember the brand name and of course I haven’t seen any ads for it lately…ooooh, I hope it’s not been discontinued! 😦

Ok, here’s what I know about it, it’s one of the “healthy” yogurts, it is advertised as a food to enjoy while losing weight or watching your diet, and it comes in way crazy awesome sounding flavours (like cheesecake, and pie flavours…). The ads usually have a lady on the phone talking to a friend about how she’s been eating Banana Cream Pie and Strawberry Shortcake and other way yummy treats all while losing weight and in the background her husband is searching through the fridge trying to find all these bakery treats and completely ignoring all the yogurts right in front of his face.

Oh, and I think the yogurt containers are white with that tin foil lid…

Soooooo, anyone know the name of the yogurt? Cause I wanna buy it and try it but can’t seem to remember the brand name so I don’t know what I need to look out for…

    I am pretty sure the yogurt you are thinking of is yoplait. It is very popular and comes in all kinds of crazy flavors like red velvet cake and key lime
    pie. the commercials for the yoplait light yogurts talk about losing weight while eating them. Have fun and enjoy your day in the states!

    Oh and FYI- you would have found it easily. Most grocery stores stock like 50 varieties of yoplait. It’s crazy. Lol!

      Thanks! There are that many flavours? That’s crazed! I can’t wait to get some…especially that red velvet cake as that is one of my fave cakes. Mmm! I wish they’d bring the stupid things to this side of the border, *great big epic sigh* 😉

Key lime, red velvet, strawberry shortcake, apple turnover, lemon cream, banana cream pie, white chocolate strawberry…I may just move in to the yogurt section of the grocery store and live there until I have tried every flavour! Thanks for the link! 😀
