YoYummy Latest Innovation in Kids Yogurt -- Natural Low Fat Yogurt in a Pouch for Healthy Snacking On-the-Go!

New Green Mountain Creamery Yogurt YoYummy Is the First Yogurt in a Pouch With Live & Active Cultures!

BRATTLEBORO, VT--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - The award-winning yogurt producer Ehrmann Commonwealth Dairy today announced the availability of YoYummy, the newest addition to its Green Mountain Creamery yogurt line. Developed with kids in mind, YoYummy is a natural, low fat yogurt packaged in an innovative, squeezable pouch! It is the first fresh yogurt in this convenient packaging, with live and active cultures, available in the U.S.

YoYummy is available in the yogurt section in four flavors: Strawberry, Mixed Berry, Strawberry-Banana and Cotton Candy. Like other Green Mountain Creamery yogurts, YoYummy is an exercise in simplicity. The yogurt is made with Grade A rBST-free Vermont milk, real fruit and berries and just enough natural sugar to make it sweet. It has 10 percent less sugar than the leading national brand kids' yogurt.

"At Commonwealth Dairy, we believe the fewer ingredients in a product, the better," said Thomas Moffitt, CEO of Ehrmann Commonwealth Dairy. "Applesauce and baby food have been available in pouches for quite a while, but YoYummy is the first yogurt with live and active cultures available in this packaging in the U.S. We're excited to provide parents and kids with another healthy, delicious, incredibly convenient snack alternative."

YoYummy yogurt is made with grade A milk and contains no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives; its packaging is BPA-free, and it is gluten-free and kosher. YoYummy offers 15% of the recommended daily allowance for calcium and is a good source of vitamins A & D, too, making it a healthy snack choice for kids, at home or on-the-go!

"Commonwealth Dairy is committed to producing healthy, high-quality yogurt with locally-sourced ingredients," said Benjamin Johnson, Vice President and CFO of Ehrmann Commonwealth Dairy. "Demand for our products has soared beyond our wildest expectations, and we're excited to continue to bring innovative products like YoYummy to the market."

YoYummy is available in 4-packs of 3.5-ounce pouches (Mixed Berry/Strawberry, Strawberry-Banana/Cotton Candy) for the suggested retail price of $4.99. A 12-pouch pack will be available through club stores, as well. YoYummy is available at retailers on the East and West coasts such as Stew Leonard's, Wegmans and Fresh & Easy, and will be available at additional retailers in January 2014.

Ehrmann Commonwealth Dairy, producer of YoYummy and the Green Mountain Creamery yogurt line, is known for its innovative approach to safe production methods, high quality products and commitment to environmental sustainability.
