Another beloved treat from the ‘90s is returning to store shelves this 2021.
Yogurt brand Yoplait announced earlier this week that it is bringing back Trix Yogurt after a hiatus of five years.
“You asked—Trix Yogurt is back! What’s one emoji to describe your reaction? We’ll go first: 🎉” Yoplait wrote on social media on Tuesday, a few days after teasing the refrigerated snack’s impending return to the market.
During its original release, Trix Yogurt was available in various flavors, including Strawberry Banana Bash, Raspberry Rainbow, Cotton Candy, Watermelon Burst, and more. But for its comeback starting early this May, the cold fruity treat will only come in two flavors: strawberry, which features red and green swirls, and berry, which has blue and purple swirls.
Huge fans of Trix Yogurt have been asking Yoplait’s parent company, General Mills, to bring back the snack since it was discontinued in 2016. A Change.org petition calling for the yogurt’s return was even created two years ago and has now collected over 9900 signatures.
“To know an entire generation of kids have [sic] not experienced the delight of Trix Yogurt is quite a shame, read a portion of the petition’s description. “The recent comeback of Trix cereal’s fruit shapes has proved a rousing enough commercial success to suggest a similar result with the return of the branded yogurt. We implore General Mills to once again team with Yoplait to revive the classic Trix Yogurt and introduce a whole new wave of children to the nostalgic craze.”
A rep for Yoplait confirmed to Best Products that Trix Yogurt will only be available at Walmart and SuperValu stores across the U.S. in $4 eight-count packs that each includes four strawberry and four berry cups. Unfortunately, it is not clear whether Trix Yogurt is back to stay or if it’s back just for a limited time.
