Yoplait's Saveur d'Autrefois in Paris and other queries
- SeriousPig Nov 6, 2002 04:50 PM
I am looking for sources in Paris for a yogurt called Saveur d'Autrefois, made by Yoplait.
I discovered it on a morning train from Paris to Amsterdam last week (because a pain au chocolat and hot chocolat just isn't enough for breakfast). The yogurt comes in a stoneware pot, and was the richest yogurt I ever tasted. You could really taste the cream...
But I digress. My partner loved the pot so much that he kept his, but I stupidly threw mine away. A friend of mine who is going to Paris soon offered to bring me back a pot (after she eats the yogurt), but I can't seem to find the yogurt on the Yoplait website. I would like to make my friend's life easier by telling her where to go.
While I'm at it, does anyone know where whether I can find this yogurt in the U.S.? Or another dairy product that my friend and I had in Europe: Dutch vla. It's like drinkable pudding.
Hmmm...a stoneware pot? We have not seen them at the regular grocery stores - Franprix, Shopi, etc. - but will look for them now.
My sister - who's much more the shopper in the family than I am - thinks they might have them at Monoprix and promises to check the next time she's there - probably this coming weekend.
I'll also check our cheese shop downstairs as well.
Thanks for the tip. We love yogurt - as do the French.
