Grape Yogurt

Why don't yogurt manufacturers make grape flavored yogurt?  I have seen almost all other fruit flavored yogurts.  There is lemon and orange and raspberry and blueberry and banana and mango and passion fruit.  There is key lime and apple pie.  There are also quite a few other exotic flavors and combinations like chocolate and red velvet cake and honey.  Why not grape?  I think the Welch's company is missing a marketing opportunity. 

Today, I mixed a heaving tablespoon  of Welch's grape jam into a cup of fat free plain Greek yogurt.  OH MY!  It was luscious.  I remember having grape ice cream and grape pudding at the Welch's Grape Festival years ago.  It's time for GRAPE YOGURT!

(By the way, I haven't seen grapefruit flavored yogurt either.  I haven't tried it yet.  Although, I love grapefruit, I think it might curdle the yogurt.  Or is yogurt already curdled??  I guess I have to try it.)

Hi, Di! About the lack of a grape flavored yogurt - just last week I came across a limited edition flavor of Chobani Concord Grape Blended Greek yogurt. Beautiful purple label, but I've only seen this in Adams, our local gourmet market; in particular, the branch on Rte 44 in Poughkeepsie. Don't know if the other locations are carrying it. They've carried other limited edition flavors and only seem to put them out for a few short weeks. Hubs loved the grape flavor; me, not so much. It's very strong, like how a grape Pixie stick or Kool-Aid used to taste. The flavor makes you feel like you're eating something from your childhood, but it was much too sweet for me. Hope you can locate some to carry out your own taste test. Good luck! :)
