A Sad Day in Yogurt Land
Yogurt Pioneer Daniel Carasso died yesterday at the ripe old age of 103. You may know him by his nickname "Danny" or, in Catalon "Danon." Yes, he is the Danon behind the international conglomerate the Danone Group - known in America as Dannon. You might find some of his products in our very own yogurt case.
We sell one flavor of Dannon yogurt (Coffee) but we also sell Dannon-owned Stonyfield Farms. It's hard to imagine Yogurt Land without Dannon. Local favorites Evans, Butterworks, Seven Stars, Siggi's and Liberte might get lonely on those shelves...
