This is a new entrant in the market, albeit by a classic French brand (in fact, Yoplait is the world’s largest yogurt franchise brand). Make no mistake: these yogurts are fancy. Sold in glass pots, the Oui yogurts are set for eight hours using a French technique.

Available in four flavors, all yogurts come in just one size: 5oz. These are mango, raspberry, strawberry and vanilla. Oui uses coconut cream as a base, with cane sugar, non-GMO ingredients and cultures rounding up the list.
