Oui by Yoplait is a new, thick and creamy yogurt that comes from a Yoplait traditional French recipe that was up until now only available in France, a company statement reports.

Available in a French-made glass pot, this new yogurt is made with whole milk, pure cane sugar and pieces of fruit. Each serving is individually cultured in the same glass pot you eat it from using a traditional pot set process.

“We wanted to bring something special to our U.S. consumers – something we have been enjoying during visits with our French colleagues for many years, but hard to replicate in large quantities here in the U.S.,” said David Clark, president of U.S. Yogurt at General Mills, in the company statement. “Oui by Yoplait introduces an entirely new category of yogurt to the U.S. using a recipe that has been enjoyed for decades in France.”

The Oui by Yoplait recipe is inspired by Yoplait’s Saveur d’Autrefois (English translation: “taste of yesteryear”), which is sold in France.  

The method for making French style yogurt differs greatly from the standard U.S. yogurt making process. Instead of culturing the ingredients in large batches and then filling individual cups with fully prepared yogurt, Oui by Yoplait is made by pouring ingredients into each individual pot, and allowing each glass pot to culture for eight hours, resulting in a unique yogurt.
