pink grapefruit yogurt

emmi pink grapefruit yogurtI’m enchanted by pink grapefruit yogurt from Emmi. Emmi is a Swiss brand owned by the dairy giant Lucerne, and their yogurt is made in Switzerland from Alpine dairy. It is quite luscious (the Swiss know dairy), but what makes pink grapefruit special is the combination of tartness and sweetness that accompanies every spoonful.

Emmi’s yogurt is made with grapefruit juice and pulp, and the result is most unlike any other flavor I have tried. Of course it is also loaded with active yogurt cultures, and you can’t go wrong with other Emmi flavors like strawberry and blueberry, but the pink grapefruit is special.

I buy mine at Andronico’s, but it is also stocked by Piazza’s and other fine markets. (I haven’t seen it at Whole Foods though.) Give it a try and tell me what you think.

I agree. This yogurt is downright awesome...if only it were easier to find!

Yessss! I could not agree more about the tart/creamy combo. YUM, I am eating some right now. I love pink grapefruit flavor and Emmi's decision to use it in yogurt was inspired. BTW, I think it has become much more popular in the time since your post because I have no trouble finding it at most of the corner stores I visit. To anyone who has yet to try this treat: don't wait, it's too delicious.

I found this wonderful yogurt in New York at Dean and Delucas....have been searching hi and low for this scrumptious little jewel. Since I did a google search I found that it is carried up north only. Piazza's does not ship and I live in Los Angeles...if you know where I can get it in LA please advise. I will check in periodically.

it really is delicious.....found at deli at spring and prince in nyc.

also just found this recipe.
Here I went for the grapefruit option simply because… that was the only citrus I had at home. It gives a subtle and pleasurable tanginess. Hum, yum!
