On Thursday night, Janine and I were lucky enough to get Stonyfield Yogurt to host our July Blog & Tweet NH event.
We had a solid group for a weeknight, and 8 of us bloggers took Stonyfield by storm.
Stonyfield is a yogurt company based out of my home state of New Hampshire. Stonyfield’s products are organic, and they offer a vast variety of yogurts: blends, fruit on the bottom, greek, soy, and smoothies. They also offer, my favorite, the ONLY organic frozen yogurt!
Stonyfield has 2 missions; to make the healthiest best tasting yogurt on Earth, and to help the Earth. As the leading yogurt producer in the world, that must mean that they use a lot of energy to create and package their product, right? So how do they help the Earth?
For starters, they have solar panels on their roof to cut down on global warming, and secondly, after taste tasting their yogurts to make sure they are at the right temperature and taste, they give those remains to local farms to feed their animals.
What a life for those pigs! 😉
Stonyfield is all for making sure their products are of the highest quality. They get roughly 8-10 trucks a day of milk, and they test every truck of milk for quality. They also check the temperature quality of the seals on the yogurt before they’re shipped, making sure that each container we dig into is perfect.
We started off our event with watching a video to understand the history of Stonyfield and how yogurt is made, and after that 18 minute video, the real fun began!
Stonyfield has a row of freezers containing all of their products, and we were told to start by picking a “Blends” yogurt, and a Greek yogurt.
The greek yogurt I chose was the caramel one, and holy crap it was the best thing that I’ve ever tasted.
My 2nd favorite yogurt is one from their sister-company out in sunny California, Brown Cow.
The Brown Cow yogurt is a cream topped greek yogurt, that is more of a dessert yogurt like the caramel.
After trying the yogurts, Christina and Chandra, our marketing hosts for the night, allowed us to try any and every frozen yogurt in their freezer.
Janine brought over honey, blueberry, and super fruits.
We all dug in and passed the fro-yo around the table multiple times, but because I’m not a fan of honey or blueberries, I went up with a few other girls to grab 3 more flavors. We came back with Vanilla Fudge Swirl, Gotta Have Java, and Minty Chocolate Chip. I wanted to grab the Creme Caramel as well, but figured 3 would be best.
This guy right here, he’s my favorite.
Ermergherd the fudge swirls! You can bet he came home with me. No really, he did. 😉
By the end of our taste-testing, we were all stuffed beyond capacity. I mean, look at the carnage.
Stonyfield was awesome and event sent us home with a swag bag that included a box of 12 of the Brown Cow Dessert yogurts (omg!), and let us grab other yogurts to take for the road. We were also given free coupons, the Stonyfield cookbook, their chapstick which is amazing, and a pencil (yes, grandma status!).
The event was awesome and it was great seeing the girls again, especially one in particular. Years ago I played in a pick-up dodgeball drinking league with Sarah, and I honestly haven’t seen her since. It was so great to reconnect with her and I cannot wait to spend more time with her!
A big thank you to Stonyfield Yogurt for being beyond generous and allowing us to pig out on our favorites!
Check out your local stores to grab the yummy yogurts I highlighted, you won’t be disappointed!
