New flavors: Pomegranate Blackberry, Banana Vanilla, and Blueberry Acai

Good news for yogurt lovers! Our popular line of 6 oz yogurts is expanding with three new flavors, all made with no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no artificial sweeteners, and no high fructose corn syrup. And like all of our products, Tillamook Lowfat Yogurt is made with the highest quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*. The latest additions to our lowfat yogurt line include creamy Banana Vanilla, tart Pomegranate Blackberry, and antioxidant-rich Blueberry Acai. Additionally, you can now find Vanilla Bean and Naturally Plain yogurts in new, larger 32 oz cartons.

 

As of February 1, Tillamook is expanding distribution of our yogurt. Fans in Arizona, California, and Colorado can now find select yogurt flavors – Oregon Strawberry, Raspberry, Vanilla Bean, Mountain Huckleberry, Marionberry, and French Vanilla Bean – at Safeway and Vons grocery stores.

We’re expanding and creating new yogurt flavors because consumers are demanding more lowfat yogurts that are as good to eat as they are healthy! How do you enjoy your Tillamook Yogurt? Plain Jane and straight out of the cup? In a yogurt parfait? In prepared dishes? Share your favorite way to eat Tillamook Yogurt here on the Loaf Life Blog or on our Facebook page!

*Please note that the FDA has stated that no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST treated and non-rBST treated cows.

My favorite flavor of yogurt was Orchard Harvest. Why was it discontinued?
Please bring it back.

Hi S Lofton! I agree- Orchard Harvest was a great flavor. Unfortunately, we had to discontinue it due to declining sales. Have you tried any of our new flavors? If so, what did you think?

Thanks!

Yippeeee!! For years I've brought as much as I could (code date allowing) home from our trips to Oregon. Husband just called to tell me he found it in our Safeway here in Phoenix and I'm THRILLED! Absolutely the best yogurt, bar none. Will you be sending the cranberry flavor our way? Thank you so much!

Hooray! Thanks for buying Tillamook, Mari-Anne! Hope you and your husband enjoy the yogurt. We don't make a cranberry yogurt... but I like that idea! I'll pass it along to our product development team.

I buy a load of Tillamook yogurt everytime I am in Portland, Oregon. My hotel has a refrigerator, so I am able to take the yogurt back to Washington DC. It is worth the hassle. Thanks for such a great product.

Noticed Tillamook yogurt at our WinCo store last month at a good price and bought a couple of the plain in 32oz size. Wow... this is great yogurt! Very smooth and creamy with just the right touch of thickness and without the sharpness/bitterness that some plain yogurts can have.

I really like the Tillamook philosophy of no artifical junk or high fructose corn syrup in their yogurt - the plain only has three ingredients and you can pronounce all of them!

Since your plain yogurt is so smooth it only takes a little bit of evaportated cane juice (natural sugar) to make it a super treat. Decided to try the 32oz Vanilla Bean... waaay too sweet. I guess I'll leave the sweetened flavors for others.

I've tried just about all the "normal priced" (i.e., not the over priced) yogurt brands and your plain is the best! Thanks for turning back the clock and giving us a great product at an affordable price and made from good simple food.

Wow, thanks, Robert! We're so happy you enjoy our new Naturally Plain Yogurt so much. It's a brand new product, so we really appreciate and value hearing your feedback about it.

Hi Dennis! Thanks for buying Tillamook Yogurt - we're so happy you enjoy it! Because we sell our products through distributors, it's a little difficult for me to know exactly which flavors are in particular states or stores. I'll follow up with you via email and provide you with the contact information of our broker for Colorado; he'll be able to help you out.

Thanks!

Why can't I order Yogurt and butter at this site? I know that Costco carries some of the cheese but I have never seen the butter or yogurt and Iam trying to get away from additives in my diet. Your yogurt seems to be just the ticket.

Hi Rebecca! We're only able to ship cheese from our online store. I'm not sure where you live, but Tillamook Yogurt can be found in the Western part of the country in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Arizona, Colorado, Alaska, Montana, Nevada, and Utah.

Check the ingredients for tillamook low fat yogurt: what is CORN STARCH doing in there? I put some in a strainer over night and zero moisture wept out. Disgusting stuff. After what Tillamookd did to The Bandon Cheese Company and the short cuts they take in their products (compare the ingredients between, say DAISY sour cream and Tillamook) i'm done w/ you guys; local company or not.

July 28th, 2011 at 7:30 pm

Tillamook Team

Hi Shannon,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. The corn starch used in Tillamook Yogurt acts as a thickening agent. We’re proud of the fact that all of our products, including our yogurt, are made with milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones. Our yogurt also does not contain artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, or high fructose corn syrup.

Have you tried our new Natural Sour Cream? It’s made from only 3 simple, all-natural ingredients: Cultured pasteurized grade A cream, milk, and enzymes.

I also want to clear up some misconceptions about Bandon Cheese and Tillamook. Here’s some important history…

After the Coquille Valley Farmers Co-op became insolvent in 1986, a series of owners struggled to profitably operate the Bandon Cheese plant and store. At the request of Bandon’s owners, Tillamook purchased Bandon Cheese in April of 2000. When we were approached to purchase the Bandon brand and factory, we believed that buying it would ensure its longevity and maintain the Oregon heritage Bandon shares with Tillamook. Unfortunately, the milk supply was not available in the volume or at the quality we expect, and the facility itself was below our standards for consistency. Our first step to improve quality was to move production of Bandon Cheese to our Tillamook facility. Following several years of declining sales, the difficult decision was made to discontinue a portion of the Bandon Cheese line. We continued to operate the store, despite declining sales, until late 2005 when dangers from the deteriorating building forced us to close it down.

We continue to honor Bandon's legacy by producing Bandon Medium Cheddar Cheese (using Bandon’s same recipe) at our facility in Boardman, Oregon. You can still find Bandon Cheese throughout the Pacific Northwest in WinCo, Costco and other retailers.

Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts. I hope the information I have provided is helpful. If you have any more questions, please email us at info@tillamook.com.

Thanks!

Wow Shannon. A little too much black in your aura. We love, love, love Tillamook! I drive out of my way for the brand. It would be nice if Costco carried the entire line.

Hi, Shannon! Thanks for your comment! Costco is a great partner for us and they make Tillamook products available to a lot of folks. They choose which products they carry. You might 'bug' your local Costco and see if they'll bring in the products you're looking for. Thanks for supporting Tillamook!

gwen

what is the difference between French Vanilla Bean and Vanilla Bean yogurt? why does it differ in calorie count as well?

September 7th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Jala

Tillamook Team

HI, Gwen! Thanks for your question, and your patience for this answer.

Our French Vanilla Bean Yogurt has more of a custard-like texture than the Vanilla Bean Yogurt. Vanilla Bean has a higher calorie count (210 per serving) because it contains more sugar (37 grams per serving) than the French Vanilla Bean Yogurt (34 grams of sugar, 190 calories per serving). Both are made with real vanilla!

All of our yogurts are made with no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no artificial sweeteners, and no high fructose corn syrup. And like all of our products, Tillamook Yogurt is made with the highest quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if this is the information you were looking for.

hey, I never used to like yogurt before until now. I love tillamook yogurt! I have a question. I'm wondering who distributes your yogurt? the grocery store I work at gets deliveries from CNS, Unfi (united natural foods), and tony's fine foods. I know tony's distributes your cheese. but do they do your yogurt? thanks

Love Tillamook yogurt!!! All flavors are awesome but my favorites would be Pomegranate Blackberry and Banana Vanilla. Sometimes a person here or there will give me a hard time on my lunch break at work where we make a Greek Yogurt. Maybe I need to move to Oregon and work for Tillamook!!!

I absolutely love Tillamook yogurts - they're the best! However, as much as I love that no corn syrup or artificial sweeteners are used, I have a hard time justifying 30+ grams of sugar in my breakfast (even for Plain yogurt) and so I only eat Tillamook yogurt as a treat now and then.

Do y'all have any low-sugar yogurts? If so, which ones?!

Yogurt talk aside, Tillamook is the best!

Hi, Lindsey! Thanks so much for your feedback about Tillamook Yogurt. We've found that our yogurt recipe is liked by most, but we do get comments about the sugar content every now and then. I'll definitely send your feedback on the appropriate folks. At this time we do not have a low-sugar yogurt. I'm so glad to hear that you're still a Tillamook fan, though!

Any plans to expand to New York state? I haven't been able to stop thinking about Tillamook yogurts since I was in WA a few years ago, and no other yogurt in the price range is even comparable. Any plans to make it available to buy online? I guess I'll just have to look for a job on the West Coast.

Hi there, Melissa! So glad to hear you're a fan of Tillamook Yogurt. There's always hope that we'll be able to expand our distribution. Yogurt is a bit harder to transport than cheese. But we have fans all over the country that we'd love to share our yogurt with. I think you should definitely consider moving out this way. We love to have our fans close by! Thanks for your note.

One of the best yogurts in Colorado, Walmart is now carrying your product. Im not a huge walmart fan but they do have Tillamook. Would like to see more of your products here in Colorado. Im originally from Cave Junction, This is a little taste of home, sure would like to get some Bandon cheese here.

Our family recently moved to Oregon and I was so happy to discover the delicious Tillamook yogurt! Marionberry is a favorite, but I like them all. One problem: I was lecturing my husband about all the cola he drinks, citing the 40+ grams of sugar in 12 oz (more and more research is showing that a lot of added sugar increases heart disease, etc.). He then walked me to the fridge and pointed out that my large container of Tillamook Vanilla Bean has 49 (49!!) grams of sugar per 8 oz serving: far more than Coke. Help! I don't want artificial sweeteners, I just want yogurt less sweet than full sugar soda. :) Please! I would also like the taste better if it were less sweet.

Have you recently changed your recipes? The ingredient lists look different. Also, the amount of sugar in your vanilla yogurts is obscene! When I began buying your yogurts for my kids the sugar levels were comparable to others (Yami, Stoneyfield, etc.) Now they are almost double. I won't be buying any more Tillamook yogurt until you come out with(bring back) lower sugar options. While I appreciate that you are locally owned and rBst free, the additional sugar per serving is unacceptable.

Hi Renee,

Thanks for reaching out to us! We actually haven’t changed the recipes for any of our Low Fat Yogurts. If you love the flavor of our Vanilla Bean Yogurt, you might be interested in our Light Vanilla Bean Yogurt – it has 16g of sugars.

Hello. This week was the first time I have seen Banana Vanilla on the shelves in Bend, OR. So we had to try it out, of course. It's our new favorite flavor! Our kids, 5 and 7 both love it and us adults dig it too. Great job achieving the perfect banana flavor! Which stores in Bend will be carrying it? We found it at Newport Market, but usually shop at Safeway.

And when I purchased the New Tillomoonk Greek yogurt. I will now eat it. keep it this way. The other brands keep changing, I have ate Tillamonk for many years. Always one of my favorite brands. Keep up the good Reputation. can you come out with Greek Yogurt for us who enjoy moose or cheesecake. Got it at FredMeyers. I just put a request in at my store near me. Target.

I had been purchasing your light yogurt at my local Winco in Boise. I noticed a couple months ago the selection was dwindling and now they no longer stock the light yogurt. It seems the regular yogurt selection is now dwindling and at clearance pricing. Are there other stores in the area that will continue to stock the light yogurt? The vanilla bean added the perfect amount of sweetness to my smoothies and I really don't want to change my perfect recipe :)

Hi Dee,

Just love your strawberry, dark cherry, and peach (regular). Why do you not have the regular yogurt in the stores, all there is is lowfat and light. The lowfat does not have the flavor or the fruit that the regular has. We were very disappointed with product, we are using up what we bought and have not decided which brand to go with.

We usually purchase 10 cups each time we shop and freeze them and thaw them slightly and indulge. The lowfat is just okay but not as delicious.

Please bring back the regular yogurt.

Tillamook Team

Hi Marilyn,

Thanks for your comment! The yogurt that you remember buying in the blue and white container was our Lowfat Yogurt, but we did slightly change the recipe when we switched to new packaging. We decided to decrease the sugar in our Lowfat Yogurt by less than 10% for two reasons. First, we wanted to create an even healthier product for our consumers to enjoy and second we really wanted to show off the rich and complex flavors of our high quality fruits and vanillas. Don't worry, no changes have been made to fruit content, starter cultures, milk, or anything else that you know and love about our Lowfat Yogurt!

While we have had an overwhelmingly positive response to this change, we truly appreciate your feedback and I will let our Product Development team know that you prefer the original formulation.
Thanks again for your comment!

All the best,
Lauren of the Tillamook team

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your question! We know the GMO topic is important to many of our consumers, so I want to share the most accurate information possible with you. At this time, and in the absence of any clear standards or definitions around genetically modified substances, it is hard to categorize which ingredients in our yogurt are – with certainty – GMO-free. We do use some ingredients like corn starch that have the possibility of being derived from GMO sources because of the pervasiveness of GMOs in agricultural crops in the United States. I hope this answers your question!

All the best,

Hey! My boyfriend and I love Tillamook everything but it sucks cause lately at the safeway we go to they only have the low fat Tillamook yogurt, the regular Kind hasn't been around for months, we have looked at pretty much every store for it and its know where to be found! We miss it very much!

Hi Cayla,

Thanks for your comment! I have good news - the yogurt that you and your boyfriend used to buy in the blue and white package was our Lowfat Yogurt, we just updated the packaging. Now you can find the same yogurt that you know and love in an orange and cream package on your local grocery store shelf. If you have any questions about this, please contact our Consumer Relations team at any time!
