To My Dear Friends at Dannon...


In what seems to be a rare event, a sighting of Dannon Light & Fit Greek Pumpkin Pie yogurt.


To you, I am just one of the millions of people in the world who eat Dannon yogurt. But to me your Light & Fit Greek Pumpkin Pie Yogurt is a dream come true. I love yogurt and I eat it just about every day. I have a few favorites, but your Light & Fit Greek yogurt is at the top of my list for snacks. Most flavored yogurts have too many carbs and too much sugar, but Light & Fit's nine grams of carbs are an answer to prayer and my A1c.

I first saw the Limited Edition Pumpkin Pie at Westside Market on the Upper West Side right after Labor Day. I bought three containers, assuming that I could easily find this flavor anywhere in my yogurt-loving neighborhood. Silly, silly me! I spent the next two weeks searching for Pumpkin Pie, but without success. I searched as though I were seeking the Holy Grail and last Thursday I found the answer to me quest once again at West Side Market. Right in the middle of the blackberry stood two forlorn containers of pumpkin pie. I moved the other containers around seeking more and there were none. That was Thursday and today is Monday and those two are gone. I returned today and settled for blueberry and salted caramel. They are good, but they are not pumpkin pie. The whole world is eating pumpkin and the Upper West Side is bereft of Dannon Pumpkin Pie yogurt.

I posted my concern on Twitter and Instagram and my friends suggested other brands. After copious label reading, I learned that those other brands had at least double the carbohydrate content. I'd love to try them but the A1c knows all of our sugar and carb misdeeds. So like Galahad before me, tomorrow I will go off in search of your Pumpkin Pie Light & Fit Greek yogurt.

Dear friends at Dannon, Please do not forsake me! We need Pumpkin Pie on the Upper West Side and we need it now.
 
Yours truly,
Buttercup

I loved visiting your blog today....I can't wait to find the pumpkin yogurt - I know I will love it...I enjoyed so many of your posts! The 9-11 post was so poignant. We lost our nephew in the twin towers and your recall of the day was so very authentic and heart felt. I am now a follower of your blog and I am going to add you to my favs as well. Thank you for inviting me to in! :)

I hope to find some here in Michigan. It takes a lot of reading labels to find good low-carb products. Thanks Carol.

I'm going to look for it here too! I eat Dannon yogurt just about every day too. It's got such a rich flavor and the one I eat has less sugar than any other yogurt I've found. (OIKOS Triple Zero) I like coconut creme! lol Hugs!

I wish you luck. Whenever, I see something that I think I will like, I stock up on them. Limited, usually means "very" limited. Also, stores don't like to stock too many limited items for fear of getting stuck with them.

Aw darn, I never saw the pumpkin flavor on any of the shelves around here. I'll have to keep my eye out for it just in case it shows up. I do like yogurt.
Thanks for visiting my blog ann's snap edit scrap. I always like seeing new faces

Hey Buttercup, we could use some that pumpkin pie yogurt here in central Indiana.:):) Sounds so good to me. My daughter made a pumpkin dump cake for Sunday dinner dessert...oh boy was that ever good. Blessings to you, hope you are getting out and about your wonderful city. xoxo, Susie
