Liberte Yogourt [moved from Home Cooking]

This brand just came in to our Co-Op (downtown only for Bloomington readers). On jillp's advice i picked up some today. OMG is this good. I am eating Plum and Walnut right now and I'm afraid i may not be able to stop at 1 container. It is made in Vermont for a Canadian company. Seek it out. I think I am going to be an addict.

  1. The plain 2% Liberte is good enough to eat all by itself. Drain it and you have the best Greek-style yogurt ever. In Ontario they sell large tubs of it at Costco.

      You are so lucky, the CAlgary Costco has stopped carrying it. Absolutely, the best drained yogurt I can get my hands on here.

        Oh rats! Every time I go to Costco I pray that they'll still have it. Some stores do and some don't, even in Ontario.

    2. Try the lemon flavour if you can get your hands on it... you won't be sorry!

        All they had was the Plum and Walnut which as I said wonderful, I also got Passionfruit and Peach and Black Raspberry. Maybe if it sells well they'll get more flavors in. No big containers which in my case was probably good. i can't wait for my ration tomorrow.

      2. If you get the chance try their Kefir. It is a fermented dairy product that is really good for the digestion and I am addicted. Their goat yogourt products are also really good. Favorite yogourt by far!

          The store is new, just opened in the past couple of weeks so all they are stocking now are those 3 yogurt flavors. Have to wait and see.

        2. My favorite is their Six Grains yogurt...with peach. YUM.

          1. Add me to the club. Liberte doesn't use HFCS. I felt lucky to have found it in Penn station, NYC though only for a limited time when I had counted of getting a small container of it for fuel as I head out on Long Island Rail Road for a work out. And yes, the Greek-style yogurt is delicious. Less rich than Fage, but way richer and smoother than any of th other brands. (I believe it was one of the place that sold soup and juices. Now they only have the everyday Dannon that taste bleh, with HFCS and lots of other junk, Bad decision!)

            1. I don't know what styles you can get in the States, but Liberte is the best yogurt I have ever eaten. Try emailing them in Quebec - when I couldn't find an unusual flavour or variety, they have been really good about advising of retail sources.

              If you want rich, it comes in versions with 8% and even 10% butterfat. These are yummy as is and amazing when drained. It has live probiotic cultures and no unnecessary additives. Some varieties are certified organic and all are kosher.

              Both Liberte and a related Toronto company, Western Creamery also make fabulous cream cheese without additives and Western makes awesome 30% butterfat sour cream.

              1. wegmans and whole foods in my area carry liberte but not the whole lineup, the 6 grain is wonderful but much thinner than the mediteranean style.peach or pear are my favorites but in all honesty i've yet to try a flavor i didn't like. i am without a doubt HOOKED!

                  Even with only 3 flavors available it is going to make it well worth the trip across town to get it. I tried the wild blackberry this AM and it is good ut not stellar. The plum and walnut 'though is sinful, like having dessert for breakfast.

                2. I agree, the plum and walnut is terrific. A couple of markets around me have their goat yogurt - either in large containers of plain, or small containers of flavored - and it's quite wonderful. The plain has a bit more of the chevre tang than other plain goat yogurts I've tried.

                  Right now I have a large container of the pear six-grain Liberte in my fridge, and I have to say I'm not so thrilled with it. Something about the fruit tastes funny to me. Oh well.
