I am having a faint memory of pushing those cardboard thingies down into the top of a yogurt container to seal it back once opened. But not sure how it was sealed to begin with. It would have been back in the early 70's I would think that these would have been used. Yogurt containers were waxed cardboard back then; no plastic was used for any food containers. We were probably better off. I hadn't even thought about that until I saw your lids.

The deal with those cardboard disks: Dannon yogurt used to come in waxed cardboard cups with waxed cardboard lids. Much like the plastic lids that go on a cup of takeout coffee, the yogurt lids had a circular rim around a somewhat indented center, and the cardboard disk was pressed into that indentation. The disk wasn't used for resealing the cup of yogurt; it was basically just a label that provided additional rigidity to the lid.
