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.

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.

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.
Madge - January 18, 2013 - Report this comment
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.

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
DonW-NYC - August 31, 2014 - Report this comment
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

Whitney's was made with whole milk and cream. Apparently they stopped production when companies started pushing low fat yogurts made with skim milk and peoples trend toward healthier eating took over, which resulted in lower sales. I recently discovered Noosa Yoghurt which is made with whole milk and cane sugar. So while it's higher in fat and calories, it tastes much better. It is very similar to the old Whitney's. Google Noosa Yoghurt to find out where you can buy it.

I love and miss this yogurt as well, but good news whitneys lovers... I just had to try Stoney field farms oh my yog! And it's Is as tasty as whitneys! I swear the first thing I thought of when it hit my tongue was whitneys. This was strawberry, I just had blueberry, and it was also very good, but not quite whitneys. It is a cream on top, yogurt, fruit on bottom, so that is probably why it tastes the same.

My mom used to work for Kozy Shack pudding back in the 80's, and they used to distribute Whitney's yogurt in the NYC area. My friends and I would go through CASES of Whitney's monthly, before the health nazis went and spoiled the fun and killed sales of this amazing tasting product. Of course none of us were overweight, because as soon as the munching was over, we would GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY! WHAT A CONCEPT! Anyway, the lemon flavor was to die for, and they definitely need to bring it or something like it back to market.

I remember being a little kid in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn around 1983 and being pushed to eat this stuff. I hated yogurt, but when I saw the fancy cup I gave it a try and thought it was fantastic. We had it all the time for years and it vanished. Too bad. I'd love to try it again. It was like the "Haagen Daz," of yogurts. I'd even enjoy seeing an empty cup again.

My friend was the night security guard at the place that made this yogurt. He gave me so much of it for free... mostly cherry, my favorite. I'd visit him in the guard booth some nights and we'd hang out... they had all the free yogurt you wanted to eat in fridges inside. I went through cases and cases of the stuff, never paid a cent for it.

I've been wondering about Whitney's for a while now...Has anyone tried Liberte? It's thick, creamy and really good. Also, Emmi, which used to distribute to the New York area (though may have stopped), is also excellent. European yogurts tend to be creamier and higher in fat, so better tasting and more authentic.

If Whitney’s yogurt was so fattening then why don’t they get rid of pudding? That’s what people loved it was made of REAL ingredients, not artificial. The consistency of custard pudding. What about the people who don’t have to worry about weight? I weigh 130 lbs on a good day. Oh that’s right the obesity problem in the USA. I really miss Whitney’s yogurt. Yoplait has nothing on them. Loved the Pina Colada especially since it was thick. Please bring it back

For years I have been wondering what happened to this yogurt and then I found this forum. There is no yogurt on the market that even comes close to Whitney’s. We have to figure out a way to ask the manufactures to bring it back because there are many items on the market that are unhealthy and they have not been taken off the shelf let us make our own food choices!

I loved Whitney's yogurt back in the 80's for its ridiculously thick custard-like texture and great taste. (Someone several posts back said it had a mousse texture . . . what?! Whitney's was the exact opposite of an airy mousse!) Never a fan of fruit in my yogurt, I heartily enjoyed the Vanilla and Lemon flavors. I would sometimes turn the container upside down on a plate and let the whole contents come out - because it was so thick, it would till hold the shape of the container! I also thought the container was cool, as the bottom looked to me like the cylinder of a revolver pistol. I remember freezing it every so often, but I don't recall if it was more enjoyable frozen or not. Would be great if they brought it back - but as far as thick and tasty yogurts go these days, I'm a big fan of the Icelandic skyr style that has become trendy of late, with Siggi's my brand of choice.

I was probably not much of a yogurt guy, my mother used to make me eat Dannon from Way back and while it was OK it wasn't anything until I start to eat something called Whitneys. I probably had every flavor at least more than 20 times. Between Mr. T cereal, almost home cookies, and Sealtest ice cream, this was some of the best stuff I ever had in the 80s . I'm ready to submit a petition to Kellogg's asking them to bring this yogurt back on the market

After graduating high school in 1981 a bunch of us went to Ocean City MD for summer break. This refrigerator truck literally pulls up to the beach where we were hanging-out. These really cool guys were promoting Whitney's yogurt. They were giving this stuff away like crazy. They handed us cases of it. Our fridge was more than half full of yogurt that week. We loved it. We lived off Whitney's yogurt that summer! Lemon was my favorite. Haven't had anything as good in nearly 40 years!

I also stocked this yogurt at the stop and shop in Cohasset Ma in the 1980’s. Small world. It was decadent, the best part was the layer before the fruit that had a light fruit flavor but was still that distinct Whitney’s flavor. sooooo good. Between whip its and deli sandwiches I downed many a whitney’s. that time was kind of like the movie “go” though no entirely like it😊

I agree with everything being said here. Whitney’s yogurt was the best! I typically hate yogurt, but keep trying new brands until I find one that tastes good like Whitneys did. Like a few others mentioned, Oui by Yoplait tastes just like Whitney’s! It’s the first yogurt I’ve liked again since Whitney’s (and McDonalds yogurt parfait - try it, it tastes like ice cream!). I’ve had a number of the Oui yogurts and they are all delicious! I don’t mind paying a little more for a quality product that I like.

I also loved this yogurt. I remember it was only sold at a store like Whole Foods in California. We went every week to stock up. It should of been sold at more stores like supermarkets. I knew it wasn't low in fat but I didn't care and my kids loved it. It was my choice to eat it. I wish they would bring it back. Sell it side by side with the other yogurts. It would sell very well. People loved it.

So I finally found out what happened to Whitney's. It wasn't the anti-fat craze as many have speculated. Apparently, it was discontinued because it wasn't making enough money. RIP another beloved item that I'll probably never see again. It feels like this happens to nearly every product I fall in love with. Here's the full story as I read it: I'm just noticing this comment now. I'm the former brand manager of Whitney's Yogurt. The reason it was pulled from the market was not because of a lack of popularity or because of health concerns. Whitney's was marketed by the Kellogg Company....and was manufactured for us by a dairy in upstate New York. The fact that we did not own the manufacturing facility plus the cost of the licensing agreement with the dairy prevented the Whitney's brand from achieving the margin returns required by the company. In short, it was making money ....but not enough money. The Kellogg Company pulled the plug as a result. The product was very popular and we had achieved an acceptable market share...but couldn't get past the margin requirements.

Yes it was good. But once I found a piece of tar in the cup, that was the end for me. It got all over my teeth and mouth (thought at first it was a raison). I was at work and just kept my tarry mouth shut. Sent it back to them inside the same cup and they responded back with a coupon. Yeah, no thanks. Guess it was better than the straight pin found inside that 2 year old’s cup. Isn’t that when it was pulled from the shelves?
