Processed Tyson chicken nuggets and McDonalds.
I will be awaiting your next thread on the real dangers of this culture. If you are looking at this yogurt cup from the "hippie / green" view then yes, I would agree, but IMO to label Yoplait (sp?) as a danger to kids growing up etc.. well I think you are pushing it a bit.
But I do love to play devils advocate.
Nothing wrong with a hippe / green view. The hippe's don't want to carbon tax you. They don't bow to the man. I'm a 60's child so I know what a hippie is. It's not the in your face "I know what's best for you" person that you may be alluding to.
Taking care of the planet is okay. Ruling the planet under a false environmental cause is not.
My apologies for the OT remarks.

Right then, for that reason, we decided to immediately quit buying Yoplait.
It should be a crime to design a killer plastic cup for yogurt. How dare this corporation sluff off responsibility for their Peta unfriendly design to consumers. I refuse to give my hard earned money to such a company that cares so little about life.

I am sure there are many more products which "kill wildlife", but I am more concerned with the ingredients than that personally.

I agree, I usually just buy natural plain yoghurt and add fruit and honey. Perfectly healthy and very tasty once you get over the initial sour kick.
It's right there in the fridge next to the processed crap like Ski or yoplait people! Usually cheaper to be honest too. At least it is here in Europe, I don't know how easy it is to get hold of in the US.
Rule of thumb... if you can drink it, it probably ain't real yoghurt. You EAT yoghurt with a spoon, not drink it out of a cup.
I just had a look at a cup of natural yoghurt I've got in the fridge here and looked at the ingredients.
