Pearlfisher and Yoplait Make Us Long For The French Countryside With Oui
By: Casha Doemland
Yoplait has been on shelves in the supermarket for decades, with new additions every couple of years. They got Dippers, Go-Gurt, Lactose-Free, Greek and Greek 100, Whips, Thick and Creamy and more.
You know, yogurt.
It was only a matter of time before Yoplait took a step in a new direction. Last year, the company introduced Oui, their artisanal-style French yogurt, and Food and Wine Magazine heralded this new, creamy concoction as the beginning of a new era. Pearlfisher’s packaging design screams French countryside and taps into the carefree, handcrafted nature of the yogurt itself.
So, what is French yogurt exactly?
According to Oui By Yoplait, "It starts with simple, non-GMO ingredients, artfully poured and set in individual glass pots for eight hours. This creates a satisfyingly thick, subtly sweet, fresh tasting yogurt."
Since the yogurt is cultured in a glass container, it only makes sense that it's packaged and shipped out the same way. And when it comes to sustainability, it's the perfect vessel as the glass can be easily and reused in a variety of ways.
Heck, one Etsy seller even hopped on the bandwagon and now sells 2-pack reusable lids for Oui's 5-ounce jars.
At this point, you have nothing to lose. The container is great for the environment, it’s the same great taste Yoplait is known for, and it comes in 8 classic irresistible flavors: strawberry, blueberry, black cherry, vanilla, coconut, lemon, peach and plain.
So, will you say Oui to Oui?
