Liberte Six Grains Pear Yogurt Review

Liberte Pear YogurtAt my natural foods grocery, I saw a brand of yogurt that I've seen ridiculously overpriced at my regular grocery - Liberte. I've always been intrigued by this wholesome looking yogurt, which claims to contain six grains (buckwheat, rice, barley, wheat, rye, and oats), and with my natural foods store selling it for $1.19, I decided to give it a try, and added the Liberte Six Grains Pear Yogourt to my basket.

The yogurt itself was extremely thick and rich - I was really impressed with the consistency considering it's low fat. It had a delicious tanginess to it as well and was definitely not overly sweet. Unfortunately, it really didn't have too much pear flavor. There were chunks of pear at the bottom that I mixed in, but instead of the normal big soggy pieces of fruit that come in most fruit at the bottom yogurt cups, I found teeny little diced bits of pear that almost seemed like they had been freeze dried before added - they were just very hard, crunchy, and flavorless.

As with most 'natural' yogurts, this one is not low calorie. Each 6 ounce serving of Liberte Six Grains Pear Yogurt provides 160 calories, 3 grams of total fat (5% of daily value), 2 grams of which is saturated fat (10% of DV), 90 mg of sodium (4% of DV), 8 grams of protein and 23 grams of carbohydrates which includes 1 gram of fiber and 18 grams of sugar. Bear in mind that this is no sugar added, so the only sugar is naturally occurring in the fruit.

At $1.19 for a 6 oz container, this is pricey compared to standard supermarket yogurts. Although I was dismayed at the lack of pear flavor, I loved the creamy tanginess of the yogurt itself. Although I was inspired to try the other flavors of Liberte yogurt, with the high price, calories & sugars, it will be a while before I get around to trying another one of this brand.
