Dairy Spotlight: Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt Launches New Flavor
Beloved Seattle Yogurt Brand Introduces Vanilla Bean to Product Lineup
January 26, 2019 (SEATTLE, WA) – Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt, the handcrafted yogurt brand of Pike Place Market, launches its new Vanilla Bean flavor, adding to their lineup of natural yogurts that have become a cult favorite among Seattleites. The first new flavor in two years, the Vanilla Bean variety is exclusively available as a packaged good in Whole Foods Markets in Washington and Oregon, or at any of their Scoop Bar locations.
Ellenos’ cherished yogurt varieties are made from a traditional family recipe, passed through generations of its Greek cofounders. Made with 100% natural fruits, toppings, and locally sourced seasonal ingredients, the new Vanilla Bean flavor took months to come to fruition. The flavor incorporates vanilla beans from Madagascar and Tahiti, giving the initial punch of smooth vanilla, and then soothing the palate with subtle floral notes.
“Our team has been on a quest to find the best vanilla,” said co-founder Con Apostolopolous. “Between trying every vanilla bean extract available and combining flavors to create the perfect vanilla, we were hard at work in our test kitchen and are thrilled to share it with our customers today.”
Beginning January 26, Ellenos Vanilla Bean Yogurt will be sold at Whole Foods Market in the Pacific Northwest, available in 8oz and 16oz cups in the yogurt section. Additionally, the Vanilla Bean will be featured at the Ellenos Scoop Bar located at Pike Place Market and Georgetown.
Ellenos was founded in 2013 with a single storefront in Seattle’s Pike Place Market by Con and Alex
Apostolopolous and Bob and Yvonne Klein. From the first cup, it’s been all about offering a superior
yogurt. Focusing on locally sourced, quality ingredients and a longtime Greek family tradition of blending probiotic yogurt cultures, Ellenos is famous for its signature velvety texture and slightly sweet Greek yogurt. The team painstakingly ensures that every step of the process is true to tradition. The company remains committed to using only the freshest and best ingredients. Ellenos is available in grocery stores west of the Cascades in the Pacific Northwest, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Visit www.ellenos.com for more information.
