There’s a new yogurt in town. Take a stroll down the yogurt aisle in your neighborhood Kroger store, and you should find the new Liberté Méditerranée and Liberté Greek style yogurts.
As a part of being a BzzAgent , I got to try the new, hand-crafted yogurts made with simple ingredients. I tried the blueberry flavored Liberté Greek and the lemon flavored Liberté Méditerranée yogurts.
First up was the blueberry Greek style yogurt. I tend to purchase Greek style yogurts at the store because they tend to be higher in protein and have little to no fat. I’m a big fan of eating yogurt as a morning snack because the protein keeps me feeling full until lunch. The Liberté Greek was delicious! The blueberries were nestled at the bottom of the cup and there was a thick, creamy layer of Greek yogurt on the top. I actually like when the fruit is at the bottom of the cup, that way, you can mix in as much or as little fruit as you want (sometimes I find that yogurts are too sweet if the fruit is already mixed in).
The nutritional stats are pretty good too (taken from the LiberteUSA website). I think in the future, I’ll purchase the plain Greek yogurt so that I can add whatever sweeteners I want to keep the amount of sugar lower (the plain has only 4g of sugar, found in the milk and a whopping 14g of protein!)
I like that they are only using corn starch in the fruit portion of the yogurt. Some “Greek” yogurts use corn starch to thicken the yogurt (instead of actually straining the yogurt in the traditional way to make Greek yogurts).
Flavor-wise, the yogurt wasn’t quite as tart as some of the other Greek style yogurts I’ve tried, but I think that might be a good thing for “beginners”. The texture is AWESOME, very smooth and creamy. There isn’t a hint of grit, and the blueberries didn’t have that dry, chewy texture like some other yogurts.
Next up is the Liberté Méditerranée yogurt, the “indulgent” style of yogurt. And indulgent is EXACTLY the right word for this super creamy, rich treat. The nutrition stats are more similar to ice cream, this is indeed an special treat.
I’m a big fan of lemon flavored yogurts, and Daniel said that this yogurt reminded him of the filling of a lemon meringue pie mixed with cheesecake. YUM. The whole milk and cream based yogurt is definitely rich enough to satisfy a dessert craving, and you can feel good about indulging in an all natural yogurt made with wholesome ingredients.
I’m really glad that we got to try out some new yogurts. I’ll definitely keep the Liberté brand in mind when I browse the yogurts in future grocery trips!
