I had a BOGO coupon for Brown Cow yogurt (Stonyfield Farm, Inc.), so decided to give them a try. I bought their vanilla flavor and blueberry flavor yogurt in 5.3oz cups.
Brown Cow yogurt is an American yogurt brand based out of Antioch, California. The yogurt is a non-GMO, non-RBST, Organic, Gluten Free, Whole Milk yogurt brand. On the vanilla cup, it states, “Our ‘Original Cream Top’ yogurt is rich and satisfying because we use only whole milk. This Brown Cow yogurt is sweetened with cane sugar and maple syrup and is made without the use of artificial growth hormones, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners.” There’s several flavors, but I only tried 2 so far: vanilla and blueberry. The blueberry cup states something very similar on the back, as well.
On the cups, there’s a tear-away strip to “learn more”, which reveals a NON-GMO Project verified seal and explanation as to what the NON-GMO Project is. I enjoyed reading it and very much appreciated it.
The vanilla yogurt has a mild flavor strong enough to be pleasant, but not by any means overpowering. It’s only slightly sweet, which is just right. The color is light and the texture of the yogurt not overly thick or thin, albeit a little thinner than Greek-style yogurt. I was very pleasantly surprised!

The blueberry yogurt is creamy but slightly less “firm”, like the vanilla yogurt, than people may expect if they like Greek-style yogurt. However, the taste was mild all around with a blueberry twist that isn’t overpowering, but rather enjoyable. However, if you like a very strong blueberry flavor, then you may find this yogurt a bit too mild for your taste. This yogurt had blueberry pulp on the bottom, but very few ‘solid’ blueberries. That’s the only downside, in my opinion. Otherwise, I enjoyed it quite a bit and may buy again!
Blueberry Yogurt Recipe: Cultured Pasteurized Whole Milk, Cane Sugar, Honey, Blueberries, Pectin, Maple Syrup, Carrot Juice Concentrate (For Color), Locust Bean Gum. 5 Live Active Cultures: S. thermophilus, L. bulgaricus, L. acidophilus, Bifidus, and L. paracasei.
Verdict: I’ll probably buy again! I really liked the texture and the light flavor of both yogurts. And, I’m always on the lookout for Non-GMO, Organic foods.
