Excellent Yogurt From Canada

Liberte Mediterranee yogurt. From Quebec. Available here in Minneapolis and presumably elsewhere in USA. stir up from the bottom type. the actual yogurt is rich and creamy and delish. the flavorings are very good. I am trying to find out if they have a plain version. they have a web site in french.

    They do have a plain one, I think there are rainbow colours (notice the Canadian spelling) on the container.

        While I LOVE Liberté yogurts, I'd been eating them only as treats because of their high fat/calorie content. Then I discovered their 0% fat Greek Yogurt; it is creamier and way more fantastic than most full-fat yogurts (and I normally detest no-fat yogurts). It comes in plain as well as flavoured (my fave is the wild blueberry). Sorry if I sound like a testimonial but this is seriously one must-try yogurt if it's available where you are.

          You know, i've seen Liberte around for a while and I do think they're good, but my absolute, 100% favorite these days (aside from Fage full-fat yogurt) is Noosa (http://www.noosayoghurt.com/). OMG. I find them at my local Whole Foods and it was love at first bite. These are ultra-creamy, slightly thick but not Fage-thick, and slightly sweetened to perfection!

            Funny, I just tried Noosa for the 1st time today. Also WF's. It tastes like cheesecake. I tried strawberry rhubarb (cause I've never seen that flavor in a yogurt before) and enjoyed it. I have a honey version in the frig for tomorrow.

              Yes! It's so creamy it feels insanely decadent, doesn't it? I haven't tried strawberry rhubarb (haven't seen this one) but I've tried blueberry, raspberry, and honey (the honey is just the "base" yogurt, I believe).

            The 10% MF yogurts are very delicious indeed. Sometimes I am in the mood for plain (yes, they do make it), but my favourite flavours are: coconut; pineapple; blackberry and; mango orange.

              Living in Toronto I am fortunate enough to have access to all of Liberte's dairy lines, and they're uniformly good. They have all kinds of yogurts: organic and conventional; zero fat; full-fat; plain and flavoured; Greek, Mediterannee, and regular; plus Quark cheese and creme fraiche.

              I find it interesting that Liberte is distributed in various U.S. regions. I remember visiting Newport last summer and being delighted to see Liberte on the shelves of the health food store.

                I find it interesting too AverageJo. Especially when I can enjoy Aussie yogurt right here in NJ!
