What are the most popular flavors of yogurt?

The top five yogurt flavors are strawberry blend, vanilla, plain, strawberry and peach, according to a recent report from Dairy Management Inc., Rosemont, Ill., prepared by Chicago-based IRI. But something new and very unique to yogurt is starting to show up — savory flavors. Dairy Foods columnist Phillip Tong, Professor of Dairy Science at the Dairy Products Technology Center, first mentioned the new trend in our magazine back in February (see more on that article here). He mentioned that flavors like tomato, sweet potato, parsnip, ginger, curry and green tea are making their way into the yogurt aisle.
