What is the Yoplaitime Challenge?

Every kid could benefit from less screen time and more playtime. After all, active kids are healthy kids. But in today’s distanced world – getting kids moving isn’t as easy as it sounds. That’s why Yoplait is teaming up with Jennifer Lopez to inspire families to move together with the Yoplaitime Challenge. To participate, families simply need to create and upload a video of themselves completing the challenge presented by Lopez via Instagram Reels (@jlo) using the hashtag #YoplaitimeDonation and Lopez’s new song “Pa Ti”. For every family that participates by 10/30/2020, Yoplait will donate funds that help provide nutritious food, including dairy, to Feeding America food banks to help kids grow strong and play long.

Why is Yoplait partnering with Jennifer Lopez for this campaign?

It’s no secret that Jennifer Lopez is always on the move, especially when it comes to dancing! Because of this, as well as her ongoing passion to keep her twins, Max and Emme, staying active too, partnering with Jennifer was a natural fit for us! We hope that through this campaign, she’ll inspire your family and others to do the same.

Why is Yoplait running a campaign about the importance of keeping families active?

Helping moms raise happy and active kids has always been important to Yoplait. One of the ways Yoplait has helped moms do this is by providing delicious, convenient and affordable snacks with calcium, which they need to help build strong bones and play long! The Yoplaitime Challenge is simply another way to inspire families to keep moving together – and to remind them it can be as easy (and fun) as a friendly living room dance off!

So, how does the Yoplaitime Challenge work?

Jennifer Lopez will kick off the campaign on Instagram Reels to invite families to get up and get moving together. There, she’ll show your family some easy (and fun!) ways to keep moving, and then invite you to join in too! Grab your family and post a video of yourselves doing the same thing- be sure to use the hashtag #YoplaitimeDonation, and Lopez’s new song “Pa Ti” in your post for your video to count. For every family submitting an eligible video by 10/30/2020, Yoplait will donate $1 to Feeding America up to a maximum of $300,000. Maximum achieved if 300,000 videos posted. Regardless of number posted, minimum donation to Feeding America is $250,000.

Why is the Yoplaitime Challenge benefitting Feeding America?

Dairy is one of the most requested, and least donated, items at food banks in the United States. The donation from the Yoplaitime Challenge will be a huge help in ensuring that Feeding America member food banks across the country get resources to get food items, including dairy, in the hands of families that need it most.

Why can’t I find my favorite flavor?

Sorry to hear it’s hard to find your favorite! With the continued innovation in the yogurt industry, competition is heating up- leading to limited space and a loss in distribution for some Yoplait flavors. While we are continuously working on the distribution kinks on our end, try our product locator to help track down your favorite Yoplait flavor. If you’re not having any luck in finding your favorite flavor at your local retailer, be sure to let your store manager know which Yoplait flavor you would like to see them carry.

Are Yoplait yogurt cups recyclable?

Good news on the recycling front- more and more recycling programs are accepting number 5 plastics. Most Yoplait yogurt cups are classified as number 5 plastics in accordance with the Society of Plastics Industry’s material container coding system. The number 5 indicates that recycling is limited depending on the community you live in. Want to learn if your community accepts number 5 plastics? Visit http://www.how2recycle.info/check-locally/ to learn more. At Yoplait we’re also dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint- you can learn more here.

Why are products always being discontinued?

From Strawberry Shortcake to Key Lime Pie to Triple Berry Torte- in our mission to make so good yogurt, we’re constantly working to bring you new flavors.  Unfortunately to make room for the new, this sometimes means we have to discontinue the less popular flavors. If you’re really missing your favorite, be sure to let us know.  Head over to Facebook or Twitter, and tell us which product you would like to see back on the shelf. Also, take a look around at our Flavor List, with over 40 flavors, who knows- maybe you’ll find a new favorite! 😊

Are Yoplait Original and Light products Gluten Free?

Yes! We are proud to offer these gluten free yogurt products for you to enjoy.

Why do you use gelatin in your yogurt?

We use gelatin in some of our yogurts to prevent the yogurt from separating and to maintain the smooth and creamy texture throughout the shelf life of our yogurt. The gelatin is certified Kosher and carries KD (Kosher Dairy) Certification from Rabbi Barnett Hasden. We know gelatin matters to a lot of our vegetarian fans out there, and we do offer a few products that are gelatin free: Kids Cup, 32oz Lg Size, and Yoplait Smooth Strawberry, Blueberry, and Horchata.

Why do you use carmine in some of your flavors?

The majority of our products do not have carmine, but the flavors that do will have it listed in the ingredients section on the cup. Carmine is naturally derived and used to enhance the strawberry color. We understand your concerns about carmine since many of you have asked us about “bug parts” in your food, and the good news is that you’re not eating ground up insects. Carmine is actually sourced from the dried shells of the cochineal beetle and is used in a purified form in foods. It’s safe, natural, and has the FDA’s approval for use in food, all things that are very important to us when considering an ingredient. Because of consumer concern, we are exploring quality substitutes and hope to have an update soon.

Why do you use corn starch in your yogurt?

We use corn starch to give our yogurt the smooth and creamy texture that our fans have come to expect from Yoplait.

Why do some of your yogurts have artificial sweeteners, such as sucralose?

Some of our products contain artificial sweeteners. Sweeteners let us deliver an amazing taste without adding calories. If you prefer a yogurt without artificial sweeteners, Oui by Yoplait, YQ by Yoplait, and Yoplait Fruitside do not contain any artificial sweeteners.

Why do you use preservatives in your yogurt, such as potassium sorbate?

We use low levels of preservatives in our yogurt because we don’t want you to worry about molds, yeasts or certain bacteria growing in your yogurt. It’s just part of our commitment to ensure you have the best yogurt eating experience as possible.

Does Yoplait use milk protein concentrate in any of your Greek products?

Milk protein concentrate is not used in our largest sized and most popular products, Yoplait Greek or Yoplait Greek 100.
