Another great pumpkin discovery - Stonyfield Farm Pumpkin Pie Yogurt

Through the power of social media, I frequently get alerts tweeted to me or sent to me via Facebook about new healthy, organic, or vegetarian friendly products. About a month ago, Stonyfield Farm Yogurt sent out an update (and a much less exciting press release) announcing the release of a new fall limited edition yogurt flavor - pumpkin pie. Loving all things pumpkin, I was SO excited and ran to the grocery store to look for this new item. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't able to find the pumpkin pie variety until yesterday. (I know, the agony!)

I'll be the first person to admit that I'm a yogurt snob. For so many years I couldn't eat yogurt since it was infused with gelatin to make it "creamier," so if a yogurt doesn't meet my taste and texture preferences, I don't even feel bad about throwing it away. I'm sad to report that the texture of this pumpkin pie yogurt was a little bit thicker than I'd generally care for, but the authentic pumpkin pie taste really made up for that. (And at only 130 calories, I'm guessing it's a bit "better for me" than real pie) It's pretty incredible how spot on the flavor is. If you blind-folded me, and real pie and this yogurt had the same texture (impossible, I know...but work with me here), it might be hard to tell the difference, except for the slightly sour aftertaste of the yogurt.

I'm hoping this is one of the the first of many pumpkin flavored product discoveries this fall. Too bad I didn't discover this cool treat last week when it was still hot and pumpkin pie coffee today, since it's so cold...oh well.
Are there any new fall inspired products that you're a fan of?


  1. Well, as I've said many times in the Cleveland.com forum, I love pumpkin ales! Nothing like sipping on one outside on a nice, cool fall evening.

  2. Sadly, I'm not a beer drinker, but pumpkin beer does sound good! I do hope to have a good pumpkin martini in the near future! :)
