Description
Creamy, thick yogurt with fruit on the bottom. The commercials made this yogurt look high-class and decadent (this was the eighties, you know!) It was a little expensive but very good!

I loved this yogurt. What happened to it is one of the great mysteries of my life. The last time I remember seeing it in stores was in the mid-90s when I was in high school. I remember liking the fancy-looking cups it came in when it was first introduced, and saving them at one point to paint and use as pencil holders-- they just looked too nice to throw out.

Whitney's Yogurt kept my daughter from losing weight as a child. She was ill often with what was diagnosed later as H.Pylori. Until then, it was difficult to keep her healthy and growing. Whitney's Yogurt was the perfect thing to add to her diet. What made this yogurt dissappear from the market was that people became aware of it's high fat content and high caloric amounts. It lost popularity from this and eventually was removed altogether. Thankfully during this time my daughter was properly diagnosed, treated, and no longer kept losing weight. Whitney's Yogurt was made from cream and whole milk making it one of the most fattening yogurts out there. I honestly think my daughter's health would have become far worse without it!

Till this day i have not found a yogart that tasted as good as Whitney's - I guess it is because of the cream and whole milk. That would make sense. Why would something healthy taste that good? RIP Whitney's yogart.

Oh yes, this yogurt was delicious! I guess once all the companies jumped on the low fat/fat free bandwagon, Whitney's went the way of the dodo bird. We miss you Whitney's....

It's unanimous. It was amazing yogurt. I also remember that they caught some heat for not having the same amount of serving as noted on the package. At the same time, I was buying Louis Sherry ice cream. Nobody has made yogurt or ice cream that good since.

I loved that yogurt! I just tried greek yogurt YEEK! It made me think about how good Whitney's yogurt was. Just reinforces my belief that healthy stuff tastes crappy.

Whitney's apple raisin yogurt was the best. It was better and more satisfying than eatting desert! I wish it would come back. Sooo amazingly good.

Apple raisin yogurt was my favorite treat, I would die happy if that came back. I agree it was better than most traditional desserts!

The only yogurt currently being sold that reminds me of Whitney's is Noosa. It's made from whole milk, and has a thick texture, like Whitney's. But it's expensive -- $2.50 for an 8 oz. tub.

Totally remember eating this high-class yogurt in the 80's with its huge chunks of fruit. They have a great commercial of it on youtube.

I stocked this yogurt at the Stop&Shop in Cohasset Ma. It was wonderful stuff. Thick and creamy like never seen again. It had great flavors,.. but the yogurt was so amazing I'd find myself just eating to the fruit.. then eating the fruit as it was high quality too... I loved this stuff and enjoyed hundreds of them. Nothing like it, sad its gone. The distinctive yellowy/beige cups came in special cases to ensure they stood up through shipping. I would order extras of it and make sure it was well stocked. All of the other yogurts were far behind and losing ground in the quality race. Whitney's was it, a true legendary product of the highest quality. Quality so high, the obesity problem in America took it down. BTW, I am 8% Body fat and in good shape, its about exercise as much as it is about diet. Nobody said eat three Whitneys yogurts,.. but some do because its so darn good.

It was the best I've ever tasted. The only yogurt I would eat plain. Wish they would reintroduce it.

I worked for Whitney's as a sample girl, when I had lived in Tipton Indiana. I hated yogurt with a passion, but loved Whitney's. I do not eat yogurt because it tastes like cardboard. Even the "Greek" yogurt tastes terrible. I keep trying but until they can make it taste as good as Whitney's yogurts, I will never like any of them.

Whitney's was the first yogurt I found that I really liked and wanted to eat because it was good, not just because it was yogurt and supposed to be good for you. I have tried other yogurts since Whitney's went off the shelf, but none were up to par. But recently I've found one that comes close - Muller frut up. It has the same thick creaminess as Whitneys. It doesn't come in as many flavors as Whitney's, but I'm eating yogurt again.

Back in the 80's (when I was in my late teens/early 20's), my friends and I would eat this stuff after we got home from the discos. It was better than dessert !!! It was so rich and creamy. And yes, the fuit on the bottom was really good quality. I think the apple raisin was my favorite, followed by the pina colada. Delicious !!! Bryer's brand with the fruit on the bottom was also good. I haven't seen Bryer's around in the last few years either.

Whitney's was the first yogurt that I actually liked. Maybe because it tasted more like pudding, but whatever, it was great!!!

Something happened with them, where there were needles in the yogurt. There was a national recall, then when they came back something about they didn't give you 5 oz in a container. Shortly after that it was gone.

Chocolate was the best, miss it.

Whitney's was the best. I used to eat from the top without mixing until I started to see some fruit, then mixed, then ate the rest. I was a lonely kid.

I loved Whitney's coffee yogurt. It was creamy and had a great taste from the whole milk and it also contained eggs, which no other yogurt had.
Elton Powell - January 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I was NEVER a yogurt eater 'till one day I tried Whitney's plain yogurt about 1980. Then I only ate Whitney's. Most any flavor , though I preferred the plain. Unless they bring it back, I just won't eat yogurt again. They taste like s--t; all of them.

I remember Whitney's Yogurt. It was the best. It's a shame that it just disappeared from the shelves. It put other yogurts to shame. RIP.

If we could only bring it back. I bet it would take off all over againThere are a lot of people that don't care about fat content and calories and all that stuff. BRING IT BACK !!!! (please)vms

I was thinking about this while eating a cobani yogurt. So i had to search for it to find out what happened. I was saying to myself that Whitneys yogurt was the greek yogurt of the early 80s. But after reading some comment there is one huge different between the two. Greek yogurt is vrry healthy for you but it sounds Whitneys was very fattening and maybe its demized to taking it off the market. I was also a Whitneys apple and raison fan raison one toy similiar now

This Greek yogurt fad is just that, a fad. I personally think it sucks. It is soooo thick and NOT creamy. Dannon and breyers with the fruit on the bottom are the best by today's standards. It really blows that they are in 6 oz containers and that's just the American consumer getting screwed as usual. Just like the ice cream cartons. Anyway, Whitney's was and will always be the king of yogurts. Nothing compares and nothing ever will. I have been trying to see what happened to them to no avail. It's too bad former execs can't see these posts cause if they did, Whitney's would be on the shelf by tomorrow
