Jamie Curtis Is Right, Activia IS The Best!

My long time readers will remember that last year I had a severe medical condition that started from Diverticulitis and ended up in the hospital for two weeks, was sick for 6 months and finally had to have emergency surgery on my intestine. (Posts here)

Ever since those horrible months, Activia has been a way of life. It is no longer just something I buy if I happen to have a coupon. It is something I have to have every day.

While staying at the hospital, I had a multitude of roommates. Most of them were over the age of 75. They all begged for their Activia. Thankfully we don't need a prescription to get it. You can run right down to your supermarket anytime and pick up a variety of flavors and types depending on your personal preference.

My self prescription is one a day at 10:00 PM at night. Sometimes I have one around 11:00 AM but every night like clockwork. Three weeks ago, I didn't do it for a week to see what what happen. It was not good. I ended up with stomach cramps and hadn't had them since January!

Recently through a campaign through Mom Central I was able to try Activia Selects.

In My Honest Opinion:
My new favorite is the French Fruit On The Bottom!
Yummy. It is divine.  Prior to my intestinal trouble I wasn't a big yogurt fan so when I find something I like, I stick to it. Activia is the one for me and my kids drink Dannon Drinkables! It is a total staple in their day. There is one in their lunch box every day.

The Activia Selects Greek wasn't a favorite for me.  I haven't found a Greek yogurt that I love. It is a bit thicker in texture.

If you are not into yogurt, sample different types, it is important to your digestive system and after a very graphic conversation with some moms on the soccer field a few weeks ago, I am happy to report they are all on Activia. I can't wait to tell them about Activia Selects.

If you still don't like yogurt after trying many, please try the Activia Desserts. They are really good!

  1. My son and I also have to have yogurt on a regular basis. I like the regular Activia and am waiting on a coupon to try the Activia French. I've never tried Greek yogurt.


I love comments. Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to talk to you further
