What’s new, Honey?

Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt with Honey

What’s new, Honey?

It's been a thrilling, hectic, and overall gratifying last few weeks here at Wallaby, as we've been producing and shipping out the first batches our new organic Greek yogurt. One of the really exciting parts about launching a new product line is the new flavors that come with it. So it's no surprise that our new honey flavor has created quite the buzz around our hive!

For years we've been getting requests from consumers to make a yogurt with honey. As we were developing our Greek yogurt, we knew that it was going to be the perfect opportunity to make this happen. It took months to find just the right source of organic honey that would pair perfectly with our style of yogurt. Once we did, it was heartening to know that we'd be launching a flavor that would be both a sweet treat for the palate and packed with natural health benefits.

Honey is a great natural sweetener. Unlike processed sugars or artificial sweeteners, it naturally contains antioxidants and other essential nutrients—and it's also easier for the body to digest. Honey is said to be an excellent natural energy booster. At the same time, it's also known to help maintain relatively constant glucose levels in the body, preventing those frustrating highs and lows caused by regular sugar. On top of that, the honey we've chosen is certified organic, meaning it won't have any traces of chemicals or pesticides that can negatively alter the taste. So enjoying a cup of our Greek yogurt with honey means that you're not only doing good for your health, but also the environment.

For all the honey lovers out there, you probably know that honey can sometimes be a pretty sticky ingredient to work with (pun intended)! Honey has a natural tendency to crystallize, or form sugar granulations, due to its composition. When this happens, the honey can become cloudy, and thick or even hard in texture. Some honey has preservatives or additives to stop this natural process from occurring. The honey we use is organic so it does not, which adds a little extra challenge in making this particular flavor. There is no foolproof way to know when honey is going to crystallize, and we recently discovered that this may have occurred in one of our first batches, after we shipped it out from here. If you find a cup where this seems to be the case, we hope you'll write to us and let us know . We always appreciate getting feedback from our customers, and will especially as we perfect our process of making this new flavor!

    Our 16oz Organic Greek yogurt should be available in Whole Foods Markets in your area, and other stores soon. You might not be seeing the 16oz container right away because it has a different package design than the small cups, and they are usually placed on a different shelf from the small cups. You can always ask the store's dairy personnel if you need assistance in finding this item. We hope this helps and thanks for contacting us!
