Everybody mourn the MIA soy yogurt here and trash talk the 1000000000000 different types of Greek yogurt that has taken its place.

Yes, I am on board with this freak out. I really miss my favorite unsweetened soy yogurt like crazy. I didn't even realize how often I bought it until it wasn't available. Plus, it is summertime and I like to put chopped up peaches in a big bowl of yogurt and go to town. I am sad.

Yes! Indian food is not as good without yogurt on the side.

And the plain coconut yogurt is extremely sweet, that is all I have to add.

The amount of time this has gone on is seriously sucking. One of the stores here that carried it has already dropped it completely. They briefly had the vanilla after production re-started about a month ago, and it was brought back with a "discontinued" tag. Now it's gone. And I really don't think it'll come back.

I hope WholeSoy is able to recover from this, because I'm betting a lot of the stores aren't happy. And customers don't really have many other options. Here I have none besides Silk, which is yucky now and way too small.

Whole Foods still has nothing, in spite of WholeSoy making it sound like they'd continue making Vanilla, Strawberry, and Unsweetened Plain while they made some upgrades to their plant. Nothing here though. :(

The place WholeSoy had on contract to do the manufacturing and packaging went bankrupt and closed with 3 days notice.

WholeSoy wanted to get their own factory built out (they were planning to anyway, and this pushed their plans up dramatically), tried to build it in six weeks, and failed.

They are now taking the time to build out their factory _right_, but it will take months until it's ready to go.

They've been pretty good about keeping people up to date:

http://www.wholesoyco.com/blog/item/a-t ... gurty-woes

http://www.wholesoyco.com/blog/item/our ... t-facility

Currently they say "this fall" but also quite clearly say it won't be in August. So who knows?

Coconut yogurt is too sweet and kind of icky. Almond yogurt is heavily thickened since it doesn't culture the same way. (So is coconut, but it's not as gross as the almond kind.) And Nancy's Cultured Soy is just gross and has a weird flavor and aftertaste. It's really icky.

Who knew we were totally spoiled by WholeSoy?

Yes. This is a good thread! I miss my soy yogurt so much :( I've tried every kind of almond and coconut and I really do not like any of them. My favorite used to be Silk plain in the big tub, but now that's gone. Ugh!

My most recent yogurt adventure was trying Almond Dream yogurt. no thanks!

Oh yeah, and as bonus knowledge we now know for sure that Trader Joe's soy yogurt was made by WholeSoy. :(

Yes, the Almond Dream yogurt is gross.

I like Almond Dream but it's expensive.

What happened to Wildwood? 7

I actually like the Almond Dream. I've only tried vanilla though. My biggest problem is not being able to buy the big tub of plain unsweetened for savory cooking.

I like all of the yogurts except NuSilk (that's what we're calling it now, i'm a trendsetter). I can only get Almond Dream if I visit Brian's sister, and it's over $2 a container so I tried each flavor a few times and had to talk myself out of buying it.

Does anyone know what happened to Wildwood? That was my favorite and it disappeared roughly the same time as the others.

I gave up on my beloved Amande about a month ago. I've been using hemp milk for my breakfast granola and I don't even miss the yogurt. It was hard at first though. How are these businesses going to survive? I really feel for them. At Rainbow here in SF, Amande keeps sending really sad, apologetic letters and you can tell they are just so worried they might not stay in business. It's a real shame.

I have also noticed the absence of soygurt from Trader Joe's, and I'm not even a regular user. BOOOOO! Coconut and almond yogurt are alright, but it's just not the same. Maybe it's time to try making homemade yogurt again? I tried and failed earlier this year, but I'm willing to put more soy milk on the line and give it another shot.

I'm guessing they used the same copacker. They disappeared at the same time. I guess Wildwood did too if it's disappeared.

i never ate soy yogurt til i was pregnant then i discovered how yummy WholeSoy was and then they promptly stopped selling it at my Whole Foods.
then a few weeks ago they opened a Market Basket near me and they started selling the Silk creamy or whatever it's called and i liked that.

thennnnnnn they stopped selling it like 2 weeks after they opened.
so now all i have left is the O'Soy crepe which isnt 100% vegan and it's like all sugar.

i did find some coconut yogurt that was ok last time.

I specifically miss lime yogurt. Silk or Whole Soy, either one.

Ok, I make my own soy yogurt and it's pretty darn good. I think you all have convinced me to start a non-dairy yogurt business. First up, plain unsweetened and lime.
