Greek Pumpkin Yogurt
November 6th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
The year was 2012. A new, seasonally flavored Greek yogurt appeared in our dairy case. Crowds of admirers gathered around in apparent awe, scooped up as much as their arms could hold, and walked away with joy in their hearts, leaving empty shelves in their wake. Flash forward to 2017. Trader Joe’s Nonfat Greek Pumpkin Yogurt is back for its sixth Pumpkin Season. The first year we figured out the “secret formula” for the yogurt itself – subsequent years have been devoted to figuring out how ensure we have enough of it to keep the shelves full and fall bellies happy
This is thick and creamy Greek yogurt containing 18 grams of protein in each eight ounce container, with live, active cultures like L. Acidophilus, S. Thermophilus, and L. Bulgaricus. It’s made with real pumpkin purée (that’s the second ingredient, right after skim milk) and a fusion of seasonal spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves). Close your eyes… you could easily convince yourself you’re eating a spoonful of pumpkin pie. So if you’re craving pumpkin pie, but it’s breakfast time, and you just can’t bring yourself to have pie for breakfast – grab a cup of Trader Joe’s Nonfat Greek Pumpkin Yogurt. After all… it’s yogurt! With active cultures! And a mere 180 calories per cup! Just the thing to enjoy at the start of an active autumn day.
We’re selling eight ounce cups for the excellent price of $1.29, every day – during Pumpkin Season, that is. You’ll find it in the yogurt section of our dairy case.
