Give Me Liberte, or Give Me... Um, Other Yogurts

People who enjoy very sweet yogurt with texture will love Liberte Goat Fresh Cheese Vanilla. (Yes, something is definitely lost in the French to English translation, as it seems to be yogurt, not cheese. Also, this product is not listed on the Liberte website as of this writing.) Unlike the Redhill Farms goat yogurt that I worship, the Liberte goat yogurt has no goat cheese aftertaste. This is likely because of the overwhelming sweetness.

I like sweet yogurts as much as I like tangy ones, so I enjoyed Liberte Goat Fresh Cheese Vanilla. It has a lot of calcium (30% of the RDA) for a 6 ounce container. Unfortunately, it also has a lot of carbs (20 g) and no fiber. There are 4 grams of fat and 160 calories.

For someone who wants to satisfy a sweet tooth, I think this would make a very healthy alternative to chocolate or a granola bar. The texture felt heavy enough on my tongue, and I felt like it hit the spot. Not sure I would want to eat this with lunch every day, though. I think it is more a treat yogurt. It cost me $1.79 at my local grocery store, Fairway.

I believe it is not called yogurt due to not containing L. bacillus. Or some reason to that effect. :)
