I know we are all different but I am pretty lactose intollerant and also fairly intollerant to most sweets and chocolates.  But, I find I can eat a big bowl of brown cow vanilla yogurt w/ hersheys special dark chocolate chips added in.  It is all natural (but not organic) and has some cane sugar and maple syrup or honey but no unrefined sugars.  Loaded w/ active cultures and proteins.  If I eat too much I get a little bloated but it is a very satisfying snack and thick and creamy.  I honestly prefer it to ice cream or cheese cake now.  But, that is w/ the chocolate chips added.  I keep them in the fridge so they are nice and hard and crunchy.
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).

Hi Fitzy,
When I have had frozen yogurt from commercial stores, I feel ill, but I'm wondering if you think the Brown Cow brand is different? I'm mildly lactose intolerant...I can eat small amounts of cheese, and I can tolerate regular yogurt, but I avoid ice cream and regular milk (I drink Lactaid) Maybe I'll give the Brown cow stuff a try. Are you from the US? Is it available in regular grocery stores?

I am from the US and it is regular yogurt, not frozen. Sorry for the confusion. For frozen yogurt I can tolerate the "Giffords" brand but I think it may only be sold in New England since it is made in Maine.
