This colorful, graphic anthem lets our viewers know the many ways in which our yogurt is not only good, it’s so good. We now have 40 delicious flavors from Boston Cream Pie to Strawberry Cheese Cake. All our Yoplait Light flavors have been reduced to 90 calories each. And we’ve added even more fruit to all our fruit flavors. With all this sweet news, you may just fall in love with Yoplait all over again.
Oktoberfest is in full force for the 179th year in a row, and while it may not be feasible to fly to Munich right now, you can still bring a bit of Germany to your dinner plate. As I discovered on my recent trip to Deutschland with the German Wine Institute, the country is full of rich culinary traditions, many of which have made their way to the rest of the world. Take a look at some of Germany's most iconic food and drink specialties.
Somehow, I missed the memo on North Coast Brewing Co.'s Scrimshaw Pilsner ($10 for a six-pack) until recently, despite it being an apparent favorite around Sugar HQ.
When I busted out a few bottles for a taste test, collective oohs and aahs were heard, with comments like, "This is my go-to beer at most bars!" and even a proclamation from one colleague that it is her favorite pilsner, hands down. So I cracked open a bottle, poured it into a glass, and marveled at its generous foamy head, golden-wheat hue, and hop-forward aroma.
Sure enough, the frothy brew wasn't overhyped. Sip by crisp and refreshing sip I quickly drained my glass, and despite the early afternoon hours, I craved more. A perfect transitional beverage, this light-bodied brew is thirst-quenching enough to satisfy on a scorching Indian Summer afternoon but would be at home paired with meat-centric Fall stews, too.
On a seemingly normal Winter day, my friend and fellow ice cream addict Alisa excitedly mentioned that her neighborhood grocery was now carrying Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream in the freezer section. "Jeni's Splendid what?" I asked her, not having heard of it before. "Only the best ice cream in the whole wide world of ice cream!" she swooned. Like a Looney Tunes cartoon, it was as though her pupils had turned into ice cream cones.
Even though it was 40 degrees outside (not conducive weather for ice cream), it was only a matter of minutes before we made an outrageously expensive purchase of seasonal ice cream flavors like Dark Chocolate Peppermint and Sweet Potato with Toasted Marshmallows. Upon the first spoonful of the organic, grass-fed ice cream, I knew I wouldn't mind paying $12 a pint for this fluffy, creamy stuff that puts the frozen food section to shame. Just ask my fellow YumSugar editors how many animated twirls I did around the office when we received a special package from Jeni's recently. So, I preface this ice cream recipe with this declaration: even though Summer's over, it's always Jeni's ice cream season.
This particular recipe uses Jeni's ice cream base with the addition of matcha green tea powder. The matcha is present but not overwhelming and offers a slight grassy, roasted flavor to the cream. It is undeniably Jeni's in character: so fluffy like marshmallows and light like whipped cream, you'll wonder where the whole milk went. I mean, really, how does she do it?
Garnish the ice cream with candied ginger for a spicy punch and brown rice puffs for a contrasting bit of crunch.

While I appreciate the freedoms of adulthood, sometimes I have a hankering for a morning watching weekend cartoons while munching on a bowl of the sweetest cereal that would pass parental approval. Now, I’d wager that the true parental divide is as such: those who would and those who would not allow sugary cereal in their house. While my mom was staunch in her disapproval of Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, French Toast Crunch (RIP), etc., my dad was a bit more permissive on that front.
Throughout my childhood, most mornings spent at my dad’s house started off with filling my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bowl to the brim (at least once) with some saccharine-sweet goodness. Like any cereal addict, I had certain rituals for eating my favorite, Lucky Charms:
- Eat all the cereal pieces.
- Group the marshmallows together by shape.
- Eat each group one by one, in jingle order (“hearts, stars, horseshoes, clovers and blue moons, pots of gold and rainbows, and red balloons”).
- Repeat ad nauseum (literally).
What were your morning gustatory rituals as a child? Were you allowed to eat sugary cereal, and if so, which types are you most nostalgic for?
