A green screen with the Dannon Activia logo on it splits across so that we're left with green banners on top and bottom. A woman, in close-up is talking somewhat awkwardly about being irregular. A caption reads, "Helps relieve temporary symptoms of bloating and irregularity." The conversation shifts to different groups of women, but continues along the same trajectory. A caption now reads, "Scientifically proven to help with slow intestinal transit when enjoyed daily for two weeks as part of a healthy diet and balanced lifestyle." There's two women on the street, then three in a hair salon under dryers. Then, two women sitting close on a couch. The caption shifts to say, "Up to $12 will be reimbursed. Offer valid from 3/15/07 through 7/31/07 on specially marked packages. For full rules go to Activia.com". We see a woman eating some Dannon Activia yogurt. We see two young girls walking on the beach. The final shot shows a multi-pack box of Dannon Activia with a caption that reads, "Take the Activia challenge. activia.com"
Sometimes, I feel irregular, bloated. Does that ever happen to you? Not lately. I took the Activia challenge. Eat it every day for two weeks. It works or it's free. Heard about the Activia challenge? I told you!

I've tried Activia but find it upsets my stomach sometimes - is this usual?
posted 19-Sep-2008 9:58am i've been eating this every day for over a year - while i enjoy it and like the taste, it did absolutely NOTHING for my digestive system - it is a true case of false advertising!!!
posted 26-Nov-2008 1:17pm I was wondering if the date that is on the dannon yogurt that I bought is ok after the date. Could you email me back? I never would eat them after the date. Is that ok or what?
posted 29-Jan-2009 4:07pm For new you challenge where can I get an original request form to mail in for my money back?
posted 2-Feb-2009 7:05pm where are the request forms? Why aren't they on this sight? what good is a challange to try your product if you don't follow thru ? By the way, it doesn't work any better than any fiber food, which don't work either.
posted 5-Feb-2009 11:25am To "anonymous" of Feb 2, 2009: Try actually going to the Activia website. This isn't it. Go to "www.activia.us.com/activia_challenge.asp." Then, go to the rules and order form box and you will then obtain exactly what you wanted.
posted 7-Feb-2009 10:39am I went to web site www.activia.us.com/activia_challenge.asp and there was no web site under that heading. Nor was there any rules and order form box. why do you make things so difficult? perhaps you don't want anyone to enter. check it out.
posted 7-Feb-2009 1:18pm hi I am starting the activia challenge and notice on the wrapper it states send an original request form. Where do I get one, there wasn't any special forms displayed where I purchased the yogurt. Please let me know. thank you Marcyd@verizon.net
posted 7-Feb-2009 1:25pm to Alice: try the web sight as listed in your note it works now. Thanks
posted 3-Mar-2009 1:46pm I ONLY SEE COMMERICALS FOR ACTIVIA WITH WOMEN, IS THIS PRODUCT ONLY FOR WOMEN? I DON'T SEE ANY ADVERTISING MENTIONING FOR WOMEN ONLY. PLEASE CLARIFY. THANKS

posted 19-Mar-2009 8:00pm On the inside of the Official Challenge 4-Pack there are instructions for the challenge. Where it says How to Make A Claim it says to send an original request form. Where do you get an original request form?

posted 31-Mar-2009 8:46pm I enjoy Activia, but I might suggest your quality control dept. check the seals on the cartons. I have had 3 the last 2 weeks from different stores that have had the seals leaking. Not good!
posted 19-Apr-2009 7:26pm I would also like to know about eating after the date(as does Anonymous-Nov.26,08)obviously it doesnt go bad from one day to the next! But about how long after would it still be OK? thanks for any info

posted 15-Jun-2009 10:34am I'v tried your Dannon Activia for months...It is a scam. I can't even find the Web Page.ACTIVIA CHALLENGE. It has been disconnected. Can't find a way to send in to get your so called rebate, IT WORKS OR IT'S FREE. POPSSML@AOL.COM
posted 3-Jul-2009 5:50am I am also looking for the "official rebate request form" which seems to be interestingly absent. What is this?
posted 7-Jul-2009 4:12pm wcould not print the form retail for 14 servings is 28.00 will only get back $12 the 800 # stinks had to call 3 times no opyion to speak to a human being this is false advertising!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
posted 13-Jul-2009 5:02pm I think everyone who said Activia doesn't work needs to stop crying and try walking to the store. It works for me so stop talking about you want your money back so you can go get a BIG MAc . I love Activia it works, you dont!!
posted 28-Jul-2009 2:58pm I have been eating Activia for 3 months. It hasn't worked for my digestive system yet. WHY???
posted 28-Jul-2009 3:00pm Also, I can't walk PERIOD let alone to the store. I'm handi-capped in a W/C. I have been on Nutrisystem for almost 3 months.
posted 6-Aug-2009 1:53pm I eat have been eating Activia daily practically since it was first introduced. It does absolutely nothing for me. However I enjoy it so much that the taste makes the digestive claims unimportant. Thanks to the makers. I especially love the vanilla.
posted 9-Aug-2009 9:23pm I've treid it and it's delicious and it's working I love eating it since I have a problem being inregular
posted 13-Aug-2009 1:22pm I eat Activia Light, vanilla flavor is part of my lunch every. I ahve been eating Activia for more than a year and the last pack of the yogurt that I got was very thin or runny. It has no consistency. all that I had purchased before this was thicker. Why is this?
posted 23-Aug-2009 4:06pm dannon, Please, make a activia without a lot of sugar 17g is over the top. I buy the low fat. I don't use artifical sugar, I don't like the taste. Help us lower our waist lines.
posted 1-Sep-2009 5:40pm I read all these quotes and I agree with most of them. I have been on Activia for two months now, taking it every day. Doesn't do anything for me, still constipated every day with days I now have diarrhea, never had that before. I have tried for the last 3 days to call the 800 number to ask for a refund but the number does not work, I to feel this is all a big SCAM.

posted 22-Sep-2009 11:16am I love the smoothness of Activia, but I have to let you know how great tasting the Key lime is. It has the best Key lime flavor out of all the other brands I have tried,and when you love Key lime as much as I do you know whats good. Every morning I have plain oatmeal and top it with the various Activia flavors. Its a great way to start my day. If you can come up with an orange flavor I would be in heaven.
posted 28-Sep-2009 2:37pm I took it for 16 days with NO results. The only thing I can say it tasted good
posted 4-Oct-2009 2:12am Please send me the address to send my regrets to and get my money back. All I get is websites that are usless.
posted 24-Oct-2009 5:22pm Can you only take this for 2 weeks?
posted 3-Nov-2009 4:17pm I love activia, I love the key lime...my fav! However, I do think there is a scam going on if various customers are getting the run around and can't get in touch with you...What's up?
posted 30-Dec-2009 12:33pm I have been eating the strawberry cereal(fiber) every single day with my lunch since last year; tastes really good but doesnt do anything for my digestive system.
posted 31-Dec-2009 9:35pm I have activia in which the expiration date is Nov. 24/09. Is it still good to eat? Shirley at firstname.lastname@example.org
posted 27-Feb-2010 5:34pm The ad states that if Activia does not work you will get your money back. How do you prove that it didn't work? Get a X-ray of your digestive tract from your doctor,and show it to your grocer? Dumb ad.
posted 27-Apr-2010 3:05pm They key lime ROCKS!!!! *Please* sell it in a 4 pack. I can only get it in an 8-pack with the vanilla. What's up with THAT??
posted 14-May-2010 5:26pm Works best when mixed with oranges and Vodka!
posted 21-May-2010 11:23am I've been having activia with the fiber cereal everyday for 3 weeks and OMG what a difference! I'm finally able to have a normal bowel movement almost everyday! Thank you dannon!!!!! I guess everyone is different bc I see a lot of negative feedback on here. I'd suggest seeing a gastro intestinal doctor to make sure everything is okay. I did that first and was told that I was fine, and that it was all diet.
posted 8-Jun-2010 10:45am I have been buying the 4-pack strawberry drinks for 2 months and it really works, bowel movements are now normal daily. However I have going to 4 different stores, and the 4-pack drinks are not available. This is the first week I have miss a drink. I hope it will not be discontinued. For all the negative comments, if you did not get a bowel movement then you may have bowel obstruction, please see your doctor.
DANNON LIES!! - SCAM
posted 3-Jul-2010 12:24am Don't purchase this product! Does not work as advertised! Refund offer is a scam! I followed instructions to the letter, with no improvement. 4 months later, still waiting for refund! SCAM! DO NOT FALL FOR IT!
