Because I'm a crazy person, I actually emailed Wildwood a couple months ago. That stuff was my favorite, and after a couple months of sporadically being on and off the shelves, it went away. Here is the sad sad response:

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us! In regards to your inquiry, the Unsweetened Plain and the Vanilla Soyogurts were discontinued as of December 17th, 2012. All other flavored Soyogurts were discontinued in March 2013. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions or concerns that you may have in the future.

No other yogurts appear in large tubs except whole soy. There are slightly smaller tubs of coconut but yeah as mentioned, those are super sweet.

Nothing in tubs here anymore at all. Just expensive individual cups.

I made an Indian food feast last night and picked up some of the plain coconut yogurt for the raita. It was soooo sweet and just not "tangy" in the way I recall cow's yogurt tasting. I only began eating vegan a month ago so I've never gotten to try soy yogurt. I'm excited for it to get back on shelves though. The price of the coconut yogurt and the sweet factor are really underwhelming for my raitas. :(

Yes. It's been years since I've reliably found it. I love it in a big cup mixed with grape nuts.

I wish Silk still made bigger tubs. Their Plain was sweetened but at least it was not flavored and I liked the vanilla with granola and berries.

Soy yogurt now, please.

The two times I bought the Wildwood stuff, it was liquid. Not liquidy. Just liquid. But I do miss my Whole Soy. And darn it there should at least be Silk to replace it.

Silk big tubs forever! the plain was sweetened, but it tasted less sweet to me than Whole Soy unsweetened for some reason. Sigh.

I emailed Wildwood cause someone on Twitter said they had plans to come back. They do not. It's all true. The end times.

I'm clearly in the minority here because I actually like the NuSilk a lot (but I have a pretty fierce sweet tooth, so. . . there's that. . . ) and am intrigued by freezing it. How long do you freeze it? Does it have the texture of soft-serve froyo?



Um, I think the first time I froze it for a couple hours. I froze it intentionally once and I just kept taking it out and shaking the container a little to see if it felt liquid or not. If you try it, I would start with shorter freezing times and just experiment to see how long it can stay in before it turns into a block.

It's a lot harder than soft-serve. Kind of like creamy sorbet maybe? I don't know--I clearly don't have a future as a food writer.

I have a serious sweet tooth too, but I think it's not all that sweet and mostly just really creamy, which it turns out I don't like? I don't know. My mouth is probably broken.

Yeah, that was always my number one choice too. They used to be based in Santa Cruz, and then they were bought out by a bigger company. After that, the "factory" moved, many items were discontinued suddenly,and others gradually. I still love their soy milk and their creamer and baked tofu (lots of their stuff!), but I really miss that yogurt a lot.

Now, without the Whole Soy yogurt either, I mostly just sit around and cry.

i went to the grocery store today to get more coconut yogurt and the this time the coconut yogurt was gone and the O Soy was back.
apparnetly there is only room for one non-cow yogurt on their massive yogurt shelves per week.

1 non-cow choice and 8000000000 Greek yogurt choices.

I think the funniest (we must laugh to keep our sanity) thing about this is that in our small town vegan thread, we all agreed that vegan yogurt is like, THE thing we absolutely can't live without. I can order dry goods online, I can make ice cream, non-dairy milk and tofu are everywhere. To make yogurt you need yogurt or starter and then you have to keep on making it. And then *poof* NuSilk comes out, Whole Soy is gone, Amande is gone (and the almond milk NuSilk, which I liked okay, also disappeared), and I drive all the way across town to get three flavors of So Delicious every two weeks. Yogurt isn't a special treat, if you eat it you probably eat it most everyday so it's rough.

When Whole Soy returns I will never ever ever take soy yogurt for granted again!!! I never realized how much I used the stuff till it wasn't available.

It is absurd that in these days of plentiful vegan goodies we can't get one of the staple foods we've had forever. We can buy vegan pizza at Walmart, but are hard pressed to get a damn yogurt even at Whole Foods.

Uhh, I found Amande a couple weeks ago at a local health food store. It's sweetened vanilla, and it's kind of gross, but it was there! It might've even been a month ago now, and it hasn't molded. It's freaking me out a little.
