Liberty yogurt alert

Not sure how regional this is, but the other day at Costco (in Markham, I think) I found Liberty plain 2% yogurt - two 1-litre tubs for $4.99. It's not the organic stuff, but it still beats the pants off any other yogurt in town. Wanted to share.

  1. I've bought some at the Costco on Warden north of Lawrence. I keep hoping for the same pack, but their Greek-style yogurt. I drained the 2% and it was pretty good.

    1. Liberty yogurt is fairly widely available in the Toronto area. The problem is that it doesn't get restocked often enough. I believe it comes from the dairy distributor and isn't in the chain warehouses. If you like the 2%, why not live dangerously and go for the 10% version. This is the best yogurt I've tasted in North America.

      No if only someone can lead me to a reliable supply of the 30% BF Western sour cream...

        Oddly enough, my local No Frills carries Western sour cream just about all the time. You can also pretty reliably get it at Highland Farms.

        Oh - 10% yogurt is so wonderful. But it's not something I can allow myself very often. I do like the Liberty brand - good flavour, even in the 2%/ And if I want to get a little crazy, I'll drain it for a few hours.

        1. re: Nyleve

          My favourite is Liberty's apple pie dessert yogourt. I can easily eat the whole tub in a single serving.

        2. re: embee

          Liberty is excellent...I'm really into the mango-apricot one. Don't think I've come across the 10% or the apple pie flavour though...both sound great.

          1. re: embee

            Yup, my No Frills (Queensway and Royal York) always has Western Creamery Sour Cream. They often have the 30% Extra Rich. It truly is the ultimate sour cream. If you're going to indulge in sour cream, you might as well go all the way! Light sour cream = YUCKO!

          2. Thanks for sharing that. When I saw the subject heading, I was scared it was a food recall ... whew. Liberty fat free organic is my favourite. Of course the 2% is better but I can't afford the calories.

            1. Why don't we get their cream cheese here? Anybody?

                I don't know why we get Liberty yogurt, but not Liberty cream cheese. However, we do get Western cream cheese here. (Liberty is based in Montreal and Western is in Toronto.) The companies are connected and the overall quality of everything they both make is excellent.

                Western also makes Mandel's cream cheese, which might have been the best anywhere when it was made in a little storefront on Baldwin St. Something is missing from the old days, but I think you'll be very happy with both Western and Mandel's.

                1. re: embee

                  Just to add to all this... Liberty does make a tzatziki sauce. Haven't tried, but have seen it repeated times at my local Dominion store (Yonge & Eglinton) in the section by the yogurts and sour creams!

              2. I've only seen Liberty Yogurt in one store around here. I bought one flavor to sample - the Maple. I really liked the taste, but I wish the consistency was thicker.
