Soy-onara, Silk!

The Silk line of products is manufactured by Dean Foods, the "largest dairy agribusiness corporation in the country." As we've learned more about the practices of this company, especially relating to their soy products, we think it's in the Coop's interest to find alternatives.

Please see Gillian's fabulous post concerning the discontinuation of Silk soy products and the Cornucopia Institute for more information.

Here in Yogurtland, you'll discover some exciting new developments: We've got 24oz. sizes of Wholesoy Vanilla and Plain to replace the Silk quarts. In the 6oz. size, we have Wholesoy in Blueberry, Peach, Vanilla, Strawberry, Raspberry - the same flavors we had in Silk - along with Lemon and *new flavors* of Banana Strawberry and Apricot Mango. We also carry Wildwood soy yogurt in 24oz Plain along with Blueberry, Strawberry, and Raspberry.

All you Coop soy yogurt eaters had already started this trend away from Silk towards Wholesoy with your purchasing power. Every flavor of Wholesoy has been outselling it's Silk counterpart.

The price in cents for Wholesoy is a tad higher - but when considering the price of continuing to support Silk, it's worth it. And Wildwood is cheaper! Learn more about Wholesoy and Wildwood at the Cornucopia Institute's website.
