I have purchased Activia 4x4oz black cherry yogurt for the past 18 months and eat 4oz every morning. Last month I noticed a crack across the lip and down the inside of a cup after I had removed the top seal. Because the crack appeared to be be allowing outside air to contact the product, I discarded the yogurt. It looked and smelled fine but I wasn't taking any chances. Two days later I see a crack in the same location but on a different 4 pack. I called the number on the container to complain and they took my complaint and sent me coupons for 2 free 4 packs.
Now, a few weeks later, I notice a container from another 4 pack had a quarter-sized, damp, stain on the label. I poured contents into a bowl (the yogurt looked and smelled fine), rinsed out the container and, sure enough, there was a crack/void in the container directly behind where I saw the stain. I discarded the yogurt. I am so disappointed since I really like this yogurt and feel like it has helped some digestive issues I had been having, however I feel as if the packaging Dannon is using for this product may not protect the yogurt and I worry that it could be unsafe to continue consuming it daily.
Dannon used to be good yogurt but now it became the worst brand and will get you sick if you eat it. Even with 2 weeks before expiration date it looked like cottage cheese and tastes funny. Will never buy it again.

Just bought a Dannon Vanilla Yogurt. It was in date. Still had a month left. I had got it last in the store. I live only 5 minutes away from the store and had no line at checkout and no traffic. Therefore it only took me about 8 minutes to put it in the refrigerator. There was absolutely no reason for it to be bad. I gave my child a bite and she made a funny face, so I tried it and it tasted like REALLY OLD COTTAGE CHEESE! I'm very upset and will never be buying their brand again!
I used to eat this yogurt daily as it was very helpful with IBS symptoms but I began to notice changes in consistency- especially when purchased at Walmart. I stopped buying it from them and figured they cheaped out because it was Walmart. But around the Dannon changed the packaging recently, it really didn't taste right. It wasn't helping me as much as it used to and tasted...cheap, watery, not the same. I took a peek at the ingredients (Admittedly I hadn't looked in a while as I trusted their quality). I was quite upset to see they now include "gelatin agar agar". Any added emulsifiers "natural" or not cause my guts to be upset and it has been more & more difficult to find products without them as they extend the shelf life and make the food creamier. (Try finding ice cream without them!) I am very disappointed and I will not be purchasing this yogurt anymore.
I've been eating 2 Activia yogurt every day for about 7 years but for about the past year the consistency changes from one package to the next. One week it's just about right, then in the next week every cup in the package is watery! And lately it seems that every cup in every package is watery! I was very disappointed in the last 4 packages. What's going on Dannon? I will have to switch to a different company if you don't do some quality control. I've added a photo as proof of purchase as I don't have the receipt.
What is in this yogurt that burned my mouth? I'm not allergic to blueberries. I eat Greek yogurt every day. Has anyone else had this experience? It was like eating a spoonful of pepper. Waiting for the burning to go away.
THIS IS NO LONGER YOGURT. I first ate Dannon in 1967, so I have a quite long enough history with this product. Recently got some "whole milk" vanilla, and kept thinking - this is not the same, it feels watered down. Sure enough, the ingredients on the label say WATER AND CORNSTARCH. Really?! Actual yogurt does not need "cornstarch" added, and "Water" allows Dannon company to weigh the product down with...WATER! What a shiester of a company, and how did they EVER THINK consumers would not notice this sham! If I wanted water I would pour out from my crock and get some. I will be returning mine, and be advised - this review is for DANNON company, and will be repeated in other sources.
I have been one of the top customer for this product to the point where I catch myself showing up to the local grocery store every truck day and buy the Peach Activia yogurt drink by the case where other customers upset as they can't get theirs. Today after several years I have to say I am very upset and don't think I would be buying this product any longer. As I go down the dairy aisle I noticed that now there is a new bottle. OK. Drink should be the same. Absolutely disgusting. It's water with a dab of milk and flavoring. Please bring back the original bottle and yogurt.
Please bring real yogurt back! This Greek crap I wouldn’t feed it to a dog. The Greeks have ruined what was once a healthy food. Let’s go back to 1972 when yogurt was real. So we can show young people what yogurt is supposed to be!
I have been eating Dannon Coffee Yogurt for 20 plus years -- my favorite lunch. Recently I noticed that the flavor was not the delicious treat it had been. I checked the ingredients today and noticed that sugar, water and the natural coffee flavor had been removed and replaced with cane sugar and natural flavors (whatever they are). The yogurt tastes nothing like coffee flavor and has a sour taste. In addition, the container gets smaller every few years so that it is barely enough to be the centerpiece for lunch anymore. What was Dannon thinking except for making a lesser product at a lesser price? Did they think that the change would go unnoticed?
