I Have Become Hooked On Yoplait’s New ‘Oui’ French Yogurt In A Cute Glass Jar.

I stumbled upon these cute ‘Oui‘ jars, serendipitously, in Cambridge, MA, when we were there yesterday for ‘Revels‘.

I eat some form of yogurt each day and have been doing so for 20-years.

Of late I have restricted myself to plain, Greek yogurt to keep away from the sugar and sweeteners.

But, I had a strawberry-flavored ‘Oui’ as a treat. I was hooked.

Today, when I was at Walmart I went looking for them. Much to my delight they had some. I bought 5 jars … key lime, mango, blueberry and raspberry.

But, this will be just over Christmas.

I have been too chicken to even look at the label. I am sure it is ultra-high in carbs. Yikes. This is not good for me. But, I cannot resist.

“Noosa” — A Fine Yogurt With Pepper-Spiced Heat, BUT Alas Too ‘Rich’ For Me.

I swung by Hannaford in Alton to pick up some items this afternoon and came across a lady doing a taste demo for this yogurt — or yoghurt, as they call it. She made a point of telling me to try the yogurt with HEAT — i.e., yogurt with chilli peppers. Well I like pepper and as I have talked about before, I eat a yogurt each and every day and have been doing so for nearly 20 years.

I tried the “Blackberry/Serrano” and loved it. She gave me a 55 cent coupon and I bought a container. It is a double size container — i.e., twice as much as your normal yogurt container.

When I came home I read the label. I was SHOCKED. The fat and carbs are WAY ABOVE what I would normally indulge in. A very rich yogurt. But it sure tasted good. Yum. Yum. Would love to eat some everyday with the chilli but I couldn’t handle all that extra fat and carbs given that I, yet again, need to lose some weight!

I am going to try adding some chilli to my normal Greek yogurt. I will tell you if I crack the recipe.

I Will Have To Admit That Dannon’s ‘Activia’ Yogurt Works — And Could Even Help YOU Lose Weight!

Activia-Coupons1I will readily admit that I was skeptical of Activia’s 2 week challenge.

I have eaten yogurt EVERY DAY, with nary an exception, since 1997. That is 18 years of eating yogurt daily — and I am not kidding about the daily. In a given year there might be, at most 5 – 6 days, when I do not eat yogurt — and that is probably because I am traveling and don’t have ready access to yogurt.

I have to thank, profusely, Dr. Joseph Misiewicz, of Meredith, New Hampshire — who is still practicing out of the same office — for introducing me to the yogurt habit.

Prior to his kindly advice that it would behoove me to eat some yogurt a day, I had NEVER even tasted yogurt — and I was 44 years old!

It all had to do with the ‘yogurt’, ‘curd‘ as it is called, in Ceylon/Sri Lanka. Though my adoptive father ate it with relish I could NOT stand it. And I associated yogurt with curd. So I had never, ever eaten yogurt prior to Dr. Misiewicz. He was a good doctor and I took what he said seriously. The problem was getting a taste for it. Luckily my then partner was very resourceful. She knew me quite well and realized that there was a way to get me into yogurt. She went and found the THICKEST custard yogurts that she could find, knowing (that in those days) I could not resist custards.

After a few months of eating the custard variety I was into yogurt. Soon stopped that. Deanna has had me on no fat/low fat Greek yogurt, with or without added sliced fruit — and the MANDATORY heaping of ground flaxseed (and that thanks to my excellent cardiologist Dr. Stephen Hanlon). I never saw a need for the ‘expensive’ Activia. As far as I saw I was eating my share of yogurt a day.


activiaThen came the Arizona trip. Given my desire to eat yogurt daily we stopped at a store to buy yogurt, cheese, fruit etc. They didn’t have variety in yogurts — mainly lots of Activa, all the packaging promoting the 2 week Activia challenge. So I told Deanna that I will do the challenge — and I was SURE that I would be able to ask for my money back because I could NOT see how Activa would make a difference. So the way I saw it I would have FREE yogurt for 2 weeks. We bought a ‘ton’ and kept the receipts.

I live Activa. I eat mainly the lime, coconut/vanilla and blackberry. The kids got a liking for it too. Within the week, once we got home, we were buying A TON — and I mean 4, 5, 6 packs of Activa.

Activa does seem to WORK. I am amazed. I would NOT dream of asking for my money back, because that would be dishonest. I don’t know why, but Activa does appear to work. Moreover, since I have been eating Activa, for a month or so now, I have lost even more weight! Not much. Maybe 2 pounds, BUT it all counts.

So, I am SOLD. If you open our fridge these days you will be confronted with a WALL of Activa. Yes, it is not ‘cheap’ BUT it is well worth the money.

So we are voting for Activia.

This whole scam is much, much worse than Solyndra.

That they, i.e., Obama, gave it to a Canadian company says it all.

Easier to get the money out of the country.

BIGGEST fraud perpetrated on U.S. taxpayers.

IF we don’t take action now all the culprits, led by Obama, will skip the country come 2017.

Obama will seek asylum in Kenya.

While I have done work for Canadian software companies, lets face it,
Canada’s biggest technology ‘success’ is Blackberry and they IMPLODED.

Lets not even talk about bloody Northern Telecom (NT or Nortel)
that embezzled 5 years of my pension making my destitute even worse.

Since 1991 I have been promoting the FACT that the ONE AREA that the U.S. has
an UNBEATABLE lead is software development.

IBM, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Cisco, Oracle, Adobe, Facebook, Linkedin yada, yada, yada, yada
are not Canadian, not Korean, not German, not Japanese, not Indian, not French,
not Kenyan.

All of the world’s BIGGEST software companies are American.

So why the heck would we give Obamacare to the Canadians
given that they don’t even have the sense to move to a
warmer country?

This is FRAUD.

Impeach Obama.

Round up all the other crooks and throw them in Jail.
