Why do they put fruit at the bottom of the yogurt? Why not at the top, or just mixed in?

Fruit will settle to the bottom of the yogurt during transit anyway; this way, it ends up neat and tidy and intentional. Many people mix it together just before eating if they prefer a more blended flavor.

  • @AzorAhai-him- I know some of autistic people have issues with texture differences between things in their mouth at the same time and so eat each thing separate. But you're probably right that most people mix theirs. Feb 6, 2021 at 16:28

At the time Dannon came to US, which was 1942, to appeal to the sweet tooth of Americans, fruit was added, but it was illegal at the time to mix anything with dairy. So they put it in the bottom to avoid this issue.
