A tale of yogurty woes...

on Thursday, 20 June 2013. Posted in Announcements

And the courage to continue


WholeSoy is proud to be an independently-owned company, which gives us the ability to openly share our story with you as it unfolds. Well, we are learning the hard way that you can't fast track the move to a new production facility. We feel it is important, after so many unfulfilled promises over these last several weeks, to acknowledge that we were overly optimistic with our timeline and need a little more time to get it right.

For a quick recap: the facility that previously helped us make and package our soy yogurt (called a co-packer in the industry) abruptly closed its doors and stopped making our products giving us only three days' notice. We were incredibly fortunate to have already been in the process of setting up a new facility, but a move like this is a complicated endeavor that typically takes six months or more to complete.

In our effort to get product on the market as quickly as possible, we tried to rush the new facility into full production. The results have been extremely disappointing for us and we know for all of you, as well. We have run into multiple start-up issues which means only a small amount of product has been made available up to this point.

We need to take a few weeks to focus on taking additional steps at the new facility so that it can run adequate quantities of yogurt on a weekly basis. This will allow the facility to make additional critical upgrades such as larger fermentation tanks as well as fine-tune all the systems and procedures.

We understand how frustrating it is for you, our loyal customers, to hear that store shelves will be empty for a while longer. But, after taking a hard, honest look, we know that in the long run this will be the best thing for WholeSoy and ultimately our customers.

We are aiming for late July or early August to resume full production. This may seem like a terribly long wait, but we need to do what is necessary to get it right. Please know that everyone here at WholeSoy is 150% dedicated to making the same delicious soy yogurts you have come to love.

Our loyal customers mean the world to us and so we come to you with many apologies for the disappointment in the continued delay and sincere appreciation for all of the encouraging messages you've sent our way during this difficult time. They help remind us of why we're here—because of all of you—and that gives us the perseverance and courage to continue.

We hope you understand and can hang in there a little while longer with us!

Thank you!

- The WholeSoy & Co. Team

 

WholeSoy is proudly independently owned and fiercely dedicated to making the best tasting vegan soy yogurt on the market! All our products are Non-GMO Project verified and use only US grown, single-source, organic soybeans.



 

write-congressWhile we fine-tune the new facility keep sharing the following information with us as it helps us to hear from you, just in case your favorite store is on the fence about making space for WholeSoy again in the near future:

 1. Where do you want to see WholeSoy yogurts carried again? Include the name of the store (city & state, if possible), please.

 2. Why is WholeSoy the yogurt for you and/or for your family?

    Sorry to hear the new company has had some delays in facility complications. Hope all starts to get in place and please don't be discouraged....I will wait and be happy to see Whole soy back on the shelves. Best yogurt on the market! Keep up the good work.

    This vegan-yogurt fanatic was so excited to see WholeSoy back on the shelves at Berkeley Bowl today that without hesitation I miscounted and purchased an entire case plus one of strawberry yogurt. I am stoked that you are back, however I would like to make one note that the flavor is a bit off--still good, but not as delicious as I recall from a couple months back. Maybe too much cornstarch? Nonetheless, I substituted yogurt for dinner and am on my sixth for the day. Tusen takk!

    Hi all
    I just found your yogurt a few weeks before I couldn't find it anymore. I'm glad that I am able to tell you where I shop and would like to see Wholesoy again. I live in West Seattle (Seattle WA) and shop at Thriftway, QFC, PCC, Trader Joe's and Fred Meyer stores. I am paitently waiting....Thanks

    Both Yokes and Rosauers supermarkets in Spokane, WA. It would be nice if SAFEWAY stores in Spokane also carried WholeSoy products, but the aforementioned stores have carried your products previously.

    I appreciate WholeSoy yogurt tremendously as I have a dietary intolerance with most dairy products, and I have tried many other nondairy yogurts, none of which are as delicious as yours. Thank you for what you do. I look forward to eating my daily soy-yo again soon.

    NYC is totally tapped out of your yogurt and has been for a long time now. Whole Foods, Westerly + lots of mom and pop stores. They all say they buy through a distributor and have no idea when your product will be back or if it will be back or why it's off the shelves. One store told me you were out of business. You should encourage your distributors to more fully inform their stores so they can pass the info on to customers.

    Thanks for the updates. I am soooo disappointed, but really appreciate knowing why. Yes to somehow having retailers knowing what's up. When all this first started, a clerk at Whole Foods Portland OR (Holly wood branch) gave this seemingly credible story about your not being able to get special soybeans. Had I not stumbled onto your blog, by now I would have dispaired of ever seeing your product again as I inconsolably choke down the only horrendous soy yogurt alternative left me. The shelves at Whole Foods(and Fred Meyers)in Portland, OR await your return.

      Hi there,

      Thanks for your feedback and providing the locations you'd like to see WholeSoy again. We have been providing constant updates to our distributors and retail contacts as well. At times not every single person working at a retail store is fully informed about every matter but we are providing retailers with notices they can post on the shelf if they choose to.

      The unavailability of WholeSoy yogurt is only related to our move to a new facility. There are no shortages of the organic, non-GMO soybeans that we use to make WholeSoy yogurts. Thanks for looking into it, and letting us know as well!

      We'll follow up to make sure your local store is fully informed.

    Can't wait til you're back. I finally found another brand that's actually dairy-free (unlike O'Soy!) and that I can stomach, but it just isn't as good as Whole Soy. You guys have the taste and texture perfect, and I love the lemon, key lime and plain flavors.

    I buy Whole Soy at Edge of the Woods and Elm City Market in New Haven, CT. The local Stop & Shop has also stocked Whole Soy from time to time, and I would buy it there too if they get it back in stock. I also shop from time to time at Whole Foods Market in Wellesley, MA, but I've overheard other customers there demanding to know what had happened to Whole Soy, so I imagine they can't wait to get you back!

    Ohhh, how I miss Whole Soy Yogurt! But I'm glad to finally look at your website and understand what's been happening. It gives me hope that you will return soon, better than ever. I am very sad to report that I cannot find another Unsweetened Plain yogurt anywhere. Thank you for making this product. I shop for Whole Soy Yogurt at Fred Meyer, Whole Foods and PCC. Hanging in there--you do the same!

    I am so disappointed, but do understand the yogurty woes. I do not know of any other no-sugar-added yogurt that I can get my hands on locally. Whole Soy is the best! I shop at Whole Foods in Winston-Salem and Greensboro, and sometimes Deep Roots in Greensboro. I am looking forward to Whole Soy's reappearance. I hate hate hate seeing all of those empty shelves and/or shelves filled with sugary brands.

    Thanks for keeping us soy yogurt fans posted! I'm sure it will be worth the wait. I do a lot of food shopping at the Shop Rite in Bloomfield, NJ, and they started carrying your yogurt in 6 oz cups about a year ago (to their utmost credit). So I definitely want them (NEED them!) to bring it back, once you can get a shipment up this way. And if you talk to them, tell them about your 24 ounce containers, I would definitely buy three of those tomorrow (or whenever Whole Soy finds its way back to the swamps of Jersey)!

    We have missed you and wish you the best of luck in getting things up and running the way you need them to! Your yogurt is very important to our family as both of our sons have a dairy allergy. My oldest son is allergic to dairy, eggs and peanuts. It is often difficult to find foods that our boys can eat safely, that they enjoy, and that are healthy! They love your yogurt and we feel so good about giving it to them. We anxiously await your return to the shelves!!! We have tried some other products in the meantime, but our boys don't like them...!

    We buy your yogurt at Whole Foods, Oakland, CA and Alameda Natural Market in Alameda, CA.

    Thank you and good luck!

    Would love to see it at any store in Tumwater WA 98512. I could only find it at Fred Meyer, but it would be awesome if you could get into Costco. Fred Meyer only carried the big tubs in vanilla, plain, and unsweetened which I love, but it would be nice to have some flavors to choose from. They sound delicious!

    Our family is vegan and I also avoid dairy because I have type 1 diabetes and dairy spikes my blood sugar. Looking forward to the return of your products.

    Your yogurt is delicious! As a vegan, I definitely need a delicious alternative to dairy, and Whole Soy is second to none!!

    Please keep Earthfare in Rock Hill, SC on your list of stores, and please consider adding Food Lion in Rock Hill as well. And please see if Earthfare can start carrying your Unsweetened Plain flavor, since even though I'm not diabetic I worry very much about sugar consumption.

    Good luck as you continue in your efforts!!

    Hi, I cannot find your yogurt near where I live but noticed last week in the co-op grocery near my office that your 6oz vanilla and strawberry were in limited quantities. I bought four vanilla today (there were six left!). the production date stamped on the top indicates a June 2013 date. so i guess I was able to obtain some of the small batch! I haven't tried yet but it seemed a little sloshy inside the cup. but, i've been eating almond yogurt in the interim and that stuff is like puddin'! I am read to have your tubs of plain unsweetened yogurt back in stock!

    After trying several non-dairy yogurts on the market, I was fortunate to find Whole & Soy. I have a dairy allergy and your product is/was my primary source of calcium and live cultures. I look forward to seeing your product on the shelves of my local stores in Madison, Wisconsin. Whole Foods was my original source, but it would be nice to see it at Hy-Vee off of Whitney Way (west side of Madison)! My favorite is your unsweetened plain yogurt Best of luck!

    I switched from lacto-vegetarian to vegan five years ago, and really missed yogurt. Yours is THE best, bar none; I buy the large unsweetened plain, and eat it on a daily basis. Mmmm, tzatziki (my cucumbers are ripe). I buy WholeSoy at Holiday Market and Country Harvest Health Food in Paradise, CA, and S&S Produce in Chico, CA. Would love to see it at Trader Joe's in Chico also. Good luck with your production challenges, and hope to see you back soon.

    The stores in the Portland OR area that we shop (and that have carried your unsweetened plain Yogurt previously) are Fred Meyer, Whole Foods, and New Seasons.

I talked to my Co-op and they explained why your product was no longer on the shelf, but that they would most definitely be purchasing more as soon as it becomes available again. I can't wait! I love your product, your mission, and your dedication to your fans. Not to mention your organic non-GMO soybeans! THANK YOU for producing a yogurt that allows me to not miss dairy in the least!

    Keep up the GREAT work! We're all rooting for you :)

    I buy your yogurt (usually the 24 oz. plain or unsweetened) at Whole Foods in Rockville, Gaithersburg, and Silver Spring MD, and MOMs in Rockville, MD (once in a while in College Park, MD).

    If you make the Trader Joe's 24 oz. vanilla yogurt, I buy that too, although it seems runnier. I like your flavored yogurts as well (not the TJ ones), and I'd buy them too if they were the only things available right now. WholeSoy is my favorite of the soy/alternative yogurts; I occasionally try something new, but I always go back to WS.

    MOMs seems to be in the loop about the new delay, but WholeFoods customer service reps don't have a clue (about WholeSoy at all) and TJs reps just say the yogurt will be back when it's back.

    Several weeks ago, I asked an employee at Whole Foods in Ridgewood, NJ, why your product was absent. He said Whole Foods was not purchasing it anymore because of concerns about genetically modified ingredients from China. Obviously your story above is entirely different. But just out of curiosity, do you use genetically modified ingredients?

    I am a long-time users of your yogurt and intend to resume purchasing it as soon as it is available again.

      Thanks for your feedback and information from your local store! The unavailability of WholeSoy yogurt is only related to the abrupt move to the new facility, as you read here. Even though we have been providing ongoing updates to our distributors and retail contacts, unfortunately at times not every single person working at a retail store is fully informed about every shortage matter, especially if it's from another department of the store.
       
      At WholeSoy, we do not use genetically modified (or GE) ingredients and all of our products are Non-GMO Verified by the Non-GMO Project. http://wholesoyco.com/diet-and-health/overview/non-gmo
      We are extremely passionate about making soy yogurt using only U.S. grown, certified organic, non-GMO Verified soybeans grown by one single Texas farm (who we have been working with for many years). WholeSoy never uses soybeans grown in China or any other country.
       
      We contacted the grocery manager of that location to confirm they have the correct information going forward. In these situations, there are always inaccurate rumors floating around so thank you for letting us know and giving us the chance to correct the misinformation.

      In the meantime, we're still working on making WholeSoy available again as soon as we can, using the same recipe and ingredients you have come to enjoy from us!

    While I'm sad it will be a while before I can get back to buying your yogurt, I'm glad you're taking the time to get it right! Just before this whole mess began, my local Fred Meyer in Cornelius, OR brought in my favorite flavor (mixed berry) so I didn't have to drive so far (which I was willing to do when I found your brand originally!). I'm eagerly awaiting the return of mixed berry, raspberry and blueberry at my store! Oh, and I noticed towards the latter end of your run at your previous co-packer, that your blueberry had dried berries in it. To be honest, I enjoyed the yogurt much better when there were fresh berries in it, so if you could see a way of bringing that back I'd appreciate it!

    I buy Whole Soy at Whole Foods in Bedford, MA, or Bellingham, MA. Wegmans in Northboro, MA, sometimes carries the product, but charges more for 6 ounce cups. Wegmans sometimes sells 24 ounce vanilla containers and it would be nice if Whole Foods sold these, because they cost much less per ounce than 6 ounce cups.

    I live in Albuquerque, NM and buy your yogurt at Whole Foods and Vitamin Cottage. At the moment, there is no soy yogurt available in Albuquerque. I have celiac disease with dairy and egg allergies. Your soy yogurt has been a mainstay of my diet for many years. Two to three 6 oz size a day.

    I live in Northern California, in Lake County...I also travel to Mendocino County to get your yogurt! In Lake County, Bruno's Shop Smart, Safeway, and the Nature's Food Center are local carriers of your products. My favorite is the mixed berry, but blueberry and raspberry are close seconds. I saw a comment about the blueberries changing into dried...I have the same issue. The dried blueberries were a major disappointment, I hope that was just a temporary measure to try to speed up distribution. I eat soy yogurt every day, so I am waiting eagerly for the supply to be back....Thanks for making a great product! There is no match for it anywhere!

    1) At 4th Street Food Co-op , 58 East 4th Street New York, New York 10003 .

    2) Because you make a product that is vegan, organic, manufactured by a company that is independently owned and operated, and free of added sugar (the unsweetened is my daily go to breakfast). Those elements combined make your company and products a rare find. Trust me, I've looked.

    I'm another Portland Oregon Mama, anxiously awaiting the return of the unsweetened plain WholeSoy yogurt! My children also have dairy intolerances and have loved your plain yogurt since the first time they tried it. We use it in lots of things - tikka masala, smoothies, green monsters and in the best banana bread ever, that we all bake together (we also like it plain, in a bowl or with a little jam or fresh fruit on top!). I have many, many bananas in the freezer waiting for the day we can get our hands on some more of your wonderful soygurt!! The Fremont Whole Foods in Portland Oregon still has a spot waiting for you and I would love to see the unsweetened plain WholeSoy at the Arbor Lodge New Seasons and the Peninsula Fred Meyer. Also wondering if you have any plans to start making any flavored soygurts that are organic? Thanks and keep up the great work!! : )

Earth Fare in Montgomery AL carries Whole Soy & Co, but will not carry the plain unsweetened. When you get back in production, I'd like to see it there. Hope you have a "speedy recovery"--I be looking for your return.

    The El Cerrito Natural Grocery in El Cerrito, CA used to carry Whole Soy until its recent unavailability. I was happy to find Whole Soy this past week at Williams Natural Foods in Richmond, located just a few miles north from ECNG on San Pablo Ave. I went back to EC Natural Grocery and noticed that they have started to stock Nancy's soy yogurt, but no Whole Soy. When I asked the staff, they said they ordered Whole Soy, but were unable to get it. I told them that the store in Richmond was indeed able to get it. Please bring Whole Soy back to El Cerrito Natural Grocery.

    A clerk at Trader Joe's in El Cerrito told me and a group of other inquiring customers that they are looking for a new vendor for soy yogurt. That is very sad.

    Sprouts in Culver City has removed all WholeSoy tags and shelf space and brought in more of other brands. Whole Foods in El Segundo just did the same thing this past weekend. I felt hopeful when space was there but empty but now both stores seem to have given up. And yes, stock clerks all have variety of stories to tell me of the 'why' - and all incorrect. Stopped checking at two local Trader Joe's two months ago, assume they also have nothing.
    Hope you figure out the details and solve issues to get back up to full production; so incredibly sad when the food you depend on disappears. Sending good energy your way WholeSoy!

    I'm lactose intolerant so I depend on your yogurt. I totally love the taste. My daughter loves it too so i usually buy a big tub and a bunch of small flavored ones every week. I have really missed it and have started to worry that we would not be able to get it anymore. We shop at wole foods in las vegas.(Green Valley and Town Square) I used to shop at the sunn flower market but i stopped going there when they stopped carrying your large size. That is how important getting your yogurt is to me. Good luck getting back to full production!!!

    First thank you for the continuous updates. We have been doubly doomed in our whole soy epic adventures as we encountered our first obstacle when our local KROGER decided to stop carrying your product ... boo ... After much public outcry we were told the corporate big wigs were sorry and Kroger stores would once again start to carry the product on their shelves "soon" ... Just in time for the production shut down to begin ... My daughter is allergic to dairy (8% of the population has a food allergy) and whole soy yogurt is a significant source of protein, calcium, and the only source of live cultures for her. It is (well it used to be) a daily staple in her pack lunch for school ... I am hopeful once you return to full production that both the KROGER in Suwanee GA and the Whole Foods in Duluth GA will be stocking their shelves with your product again. We used to be able to get the vanilla flavored. We would love love love love love if we could see the lime flavor carried at these stores as well. Thank you and see you soon???

    I shop becomes a problem for me. I use to order 2 case every 3 weeks now I have to try and get my child to try a different brand which I must say there are not many choices out there. Thanks for the inconvenience.

    I get my Whole Soy from Wegmans in Rochester NY and they have recently put another (less than satisfactory) replacement in "your spot" on the shelves. I would really like to see you guys back in the Wegmans stores as soon as possible....I miss you yogurt (and maybe you can talk the store into carrying your other flavors?!). Thanks!

    We are still anxiously awaiting your return to our local Whole Foods in Wellesley, MA! We were teased last week when we saw two cases of your strawberry yogurt on the shelf thinking that it must be slowly coming back in stock. We bought one case (should have bought both!) but have yet to see more return to the shelf.

    Our son has severe food allergies and your yogurt is one of his favorite foods, eating between 1-2 containers of your yogurt each day. We figure we buy about 600 yogurts each hear for him! So he has sorely missed this staple in his diet! We will be very excited to see you back as a regular on the shelves! Our son was so excited when he saw the strawberry briefly return. We also shop for your yogurt at the Whole Foods in Sarasota, FL and Montclair,NJ when we visit our family. Please hurry back to the shelves!!

    Breakfast without WholeSoy has become desperate! I miss you so much! But am waiting patiently. There are no substitutes for your wonderful yogurt: dairy yogurts have growth hormones (even when they state otherwise) which occur naturally, as milk is meant to grow young calves to adulthood (see the eye-opening book Skinny Bitch...); and coconut and almond milk yogurts have high fat and/or low protein and calcium counts, etc., etc. SOO looking forward to seeing you on the shelves again, and SOO sorry for your employees and company as well during these discouraging delays. Hoping you can recoup some of your business losses for all the downtime. All the best to you and your WholeSoy team, Mt.Gurl

    Ive been traveling quite a bit lately and am just learning that your product is not available. Other than having to do without my favorite yogurt for a longer period than I originally anticipated, my concern is that the staff in the two different grocery stores that I attempted to make my purchase seemed to be absolutly clueless about why there is no whole soy yogurt in their cases.
    I'm not sure where the ball has been dropped, but I do know that most consumers will simply move on to what is available (albeit begrudgingly)when information is lacking.

    I'll be waiting with baited breath ;-)

    Central Market, N. Lamar
    Natural Grocers, Guadalupe

    Miss you! Are you also the makers of Almande? Because I can't find that either. The other brands they're filling the space with are all TERRIBLE. Specifically Almond Dream and Stonyfield O'Soy. Yuck! Oh, and I can't stand anything by So Delicous. Tastes like Panama Jack SPF 35.

    WholeSoy is the best option for me. I am allergic to all milk products, including any dairy starters (hidden is several of the other soy brands). I have tried almost all the other brands and come back to WholeSoy every time.
    I'm hoping that Whole Foods (or Wegmans in Fairfax, Virginia) will soon return to offering this excellent product.

    I was very excited three weeks ago, when WholeSoy yogurt with the same wonderful quality and taste appeared again in the the cold case at the Port Townsend,WA Food Coop. Unfortunately, it disappeared almost immediately and has not reappeared yet. The other brands of soy yogurt on the market,interestingly, have been in short supply also. For a month or so no soy yogurt of any brand was available in our area. I even began looking at soy yogurt makers in order to have some yogurt in our diet.

    I am relieved to see that you are still working on full production and am in hopes that your yogurt will again be on the Coop's shelves in August.

    We will wait as long as it takes. When my teenage son was diagnosed with a milk allergy, we tried every dairy-substitute product in the county. There were only three that he would eat -- one cheese, one yogurt brand, and one lasagne -- and he's not a picky eater. He's been eating your yogurt every day in his school lunch. Good nutrition in a small package. He was devastated when both the yogurt and lasagne disappeared from the store shelves at the same time. The lasagne is never coming back. We are very, very glad that the yogurt will be.

    Our prefered store is the Fred Meyer (Kroger) store in Salmon Creek neighborhood, Vancouver, WA. If it's anywhere in Vancouver, we'll go there.

    Your vanilla and plain 24oz yogurts have become a staple in my diet. (Though I
    enjoy the other flavors as well.) Until I came to this website, I was worried you weren't coming back since I've tried many alternatives before and none of them came close!
    Would love to see your product back in Whole Foods stores in the western suburbs
    of Chicago as well as a new addition to Jewel and Dominick's grocery stores if possible.

    Getting desperate! I cannot tolerate any milk products and love plain soy yogurt on my fruit and use it for many things. Even when it was available I had to travel an hour to get it at a Whole Foods. I would love to see it carried at Big Y markets in the Springfield, Massachusetts area when it finally comes back. They have had the flavored stuff but never the PLAIN. Stop and Shop would be another great place to find it. Please hurry!!!

    I have a severe milk allergy and your yogurt was a staple in my diet. I miss you! The other brands are horrible, especially the brand Nancy's the Whole Foods sold me as an alternative. Please start carrying at the Whole Foods in San Antonio, Texas. I acquired about your yogurt and they pretty much told me they weren't be selling it anymore:(

    We still have been unable to your yogurt in our area.

    Would love to be able to buy it at our local Stop & Shop in Wilton, CT.

    They have carried, although sporadically, in the past.

    We anticipate we'll be making WholeSoy yogurt again late October to early November. We'll have more regular updates and a clearer timeline when we get closer to making soy yogurt!

    Thanks so much for your continued support and patience!

    Please bring Whole Soy yogurt back to Lawrence, Kansas at the Natural Grocer and at The Merc. We take soy yogurt every day in our lunch to work and we really, really miss it.

    SEnding you all good thoughts. Like many people, I DEPEND on the WHol Soy UNsweetened plain to get vital floura without excessive sugar. Your product is WHOLLY missed. I cannot wait to see it back on the shelves.
    Erewhon, Whole Foods, Sprouts in Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Beverly HIlls, Westwood and Culver CIty. WE definitely need another choice for vegan yougurts. IN terms of a lower glucose load, WHOLE SOY is the only option. May I sugest a campagn...if you are receiving resistance to restocking your food, could you send out "We're back !" pdfs to us loyal fans. WE can download, print and then take those into the grocers to show our support of retaining shelf space.

    So excited to see you will be back. Your unsweetened plain is the best vegan soy yogurt I have tasted. Hopefully Wholefoods will carry it again, and I would love to see it in the Olympia Washington Trader Joe's.

    I finally found your yogurt about the time it went off the shelf. After trying many that I did not like.. I especially liked the peach and blueberry. I asked the manager of that area and they said they were not going to bring it back. Instead they were going to look for another brand. This was at the Fred Meyer in Garden City Idaho. I hope you can convince them to bring it back into their store. I did let them I had already tried all the other brands and none of them Measured up to yours. also told them if they did not bring your product back in I would start doing all my shopping elsewhere where they had it. I look forward to its return thank you for the great product.

    I love Wholesoy yogurt because it's vegan, non-GMO, U.S. grown and organic. And because you are independently owned. I shop at Weaver's Way co-op in Philadelphia, PA and at Whole Foods stores in the Philadelphia area. I have been missing your yogurt for months. I'm glad to hear that your product will be available again soon.

    My sister and I cannot stand any other yogurt. Dairy, dairy-free, it doesn't matter. Whole Soy is the only one we buy.

    I'd like to see it in every grocery store in the country!

    We've been waiting patiently for Whole Soy to return to our local stores. So far we've tried about 4 different brands of non-dairy yoghurt. My son hates them all! He is allergic to dairy, so Whole Soy was a most-welcome treat. Hurry back soon. We'll keep waiting, because you have no competition! Whole Foods, Trader Joes's and Raley's are the local stores we patronize. Thank you!!!
