Yogurt update

I'm still bummed about the lack of Dannon Yogurt for Passover, but I just purchased Friendship Plain lowfat yogurt. It is KLP with a "P" on the dating code on the lid. I had to call their consumer helpline to find this out (no info on website). The dates on the containers (32 oz) were 4/9 and 4/23. Not the same as Dannon, but I plan to sweeten it myself and add in fruit/fruit sauce. Much cheaper than the uber kosher yogurts ($3.29 for 32 oz versus $1.89 for 6 or 7 oz). Hope this help all my chowhound buds!

    1. For what it's worth, I just saw in a local ad that ShopRite fruit-on-the-bottom yogurts are KLP. I haven't seen them in person, but maybe this can help someone.

          I'm told the plain unsweetened is also KLP.

            It was tough to find, but SOME Shoprite fruit on the bottom yogurt is KLP. The statement is neither near the hecksher or on the date stamp. Instead, if you are looking at the front of the yogurt, it is on the top left of the face (took me a while to find it).

              Thanks for the info. We're the klp yogurts mixed in with all the other yogurts? I remember from last year shoprite in Brooklyn had a separate section for Passover yogurts.

              1. re: cheesecake17

                I went to the Shoprite in Stamford. The KLP yogurts were separate, but the section wasn't labeled as such. It was where the dairy products on special were.

                  Again... Thanks. Planning on going Wednesday for yogurt, cottage cheese and any other last min items

            Shoprite in Paramus had strawberry, cherry, and blueberry KLP yogurt yesterday. It was not with the regular yogurt. I was looking for peach and the dairy manager said it was a misprint in the "book" (I assume he is talking about the O-U book). He said it should have said plain, not peach. Also a friend said she found America's Choice which is the house brand for Waldbaums, Pathmark, and A&P. Hope this helps.

          3. Just bought La Yougurt w/fruit on the bottom. 2/$1 from Brachs can't do better than that!

              I must comment that Gourmet Glatt also has it for 2/$1.

            2. I was able to special order Friendship yogurt from my local Publix here in South Florida/
