Hopefully Not New Coke

One of the items always on my grocery store list is Dannon Light & Fit yogurt. Whether it is actually true or not, I feel like I’m eating healthier when I have one. I guess it is a healthier alternative than what I used to eat with my lunch, a Little Debbie Swiss Cake Roll.

During this week’s trip to Wegmans, I noticed that Dannon Light & Fit yogurt had a new lid with the tagline "Great New Taste!" Excuse me, but I like the old taste. The cherry vanilla is probably my favorite but peach and raspberry also vie for the #1 seed. Anyway, although I haven’t yet tried the new yogurt, I thought I would compare the old version to the new one. Please note that this is for Dannon’s raspberry flavor.

Unlike the calorie count forum, I’m not all that concerned about the extra 20 calories. I just want to make sure the yogurt still tastes good. At this point, I’m a little skeptical.

More sugar, meaning more carbs. "Great new taste" means it's sweeter, I guess.

I used to love a cereal called "Just Right". Then they changed it. I always wondered why they'd change anything that was "Just Right". Wouldn't it, by definition, have to be worse? It was.
