Hi! My name is Stephanie
Zonis, and welcome to the July, 1999 edition of "For Chocolate
Lovers Only". Each month you'll find great recipes, tips,
and recommendations on where to find chocolate specialties.
Happy Birthday, America!
Recommendation of the Month: There are a lot of companies
claiming to be interested in the environment these days,
but Stonyfield Farm genuinely cares about the planet. This
New Hampshire-based company makes an amazing array of yogurt,
including some organic varieties; yogurt sweetened with
fruit juice; yogurt especially for kids; nonfat yogurt,
and frozen yogurt (they also make organic ice cream). I
especially enjoy the Chocolate Underground variety (found
in my local dairy case); look for the cow wearing shades
on the carton. They also make a great French Vanilla flavor.
Both of the above are nonfat yogurts; of the organic types
I've tried, I like the Maple Vanilla and Mocha Latte the
best, although I understand the Vanilla Truffle is pretty
Farm products are distributed nationally, but they are most
widely available in natural food and health food stores.
Do check out their information-packed website, at: www.stonyfield.com;
the Corporate Environmental Goals alone are awe-inspiring.
There's also a convenient section that tells you how to
find their products in your area. If you prefer, write or
phone them: Stonyfield Farm is located at Ten Burton Drive
in Londonderry, NH, 03053, and the phone number there is
(603) 437-5050. I use this yogurt more than any other in
dessert-making, as it has a flavor that is less tart than
some other brands and blends well with chocolate.
