MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New Yoplait® Go-GURT Protein yogurt is hitting the store shelves in your area this month, giving you the chance to be the first to try it. Containing a good source of protein, each tube has 5g per 2.25oz serving—that's two times the protein of the leading kids' yogurt*, but with the taste and fun only Yoplait can deliver in a tube.

"Moms want protein for their kids, but to give it to them in a fun way that they can enjoy," said Ashley Karr, Yoplait Kids associate marketing manager. "We are also excited that all our Yoplait products contain no high fructose corn syrup. We listened to our consumers and acted."

A good source of calcium, Go-GURT Protein contains no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and has at least 10 percent daily value of Vitamin A and D. Available in 8-count package varieties—Strawberry Superstar/Mighty Fruit Punch and Berry Extreme/Burstin' Berry Lemonade, the snack-size offerings are as fun as they are healthy, all in a tube.

Go-GURT Protein makes a great lunchbox addition for back-to-school fun too. Designed to freeze and thaw by lunchtime, it also is a perfect afternoon snack for mom to feel good about giving to her kids.

With 30 years of experience, Yoplait continues to bring innovation to the category by focusing on consumers' varying needs. Forty Seven percent of moms are seeking more protein for their kids diets (2010 Gallup Study), yet they also want it from a trusted brand they can rely on and is fun for their families.

New Go-Gurt Protein has a suggested retail price of $2.99 per 8-pack. It is currently available in the refrigerated aisle in the North Atlantic, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Central northeast parts of the country. Additional distribution is scheduled for October.
