|Fage or Stonyfield?|
The fun part about the shift in yogurt preferences is watching the marketplace respond. At first, Fage's fruit-on-the-side stood alone. No more. The company continues to be one of the strongest competitors, but a few weeks ago I had a chance to taste a range of pre-mixed flavors from Stonyfield Farms -- and they totally beat Fage in the pre-mixed category.
I know, hard to believe. But it's true. While I was at this year's NASFT Fancy Food Show in San Francisco last month, I grabbed a cup of Fage's Nonfat Raspberry. It was good. But it was much sweeter and less of what I wanted than the same flavor made by Stonyfield Farms, which calls theirs "Blends." Both yogurts can be found at Whole Foods stores. www.stonyfield.com
