New Liberte yogurt flavours underwhelm

I don't blog about food a lot, although maybe I should considering half of my Instagram feed seems to be food photos. But this seems as good of a place as any given that I have been scouting my local grocery stores for Liberte's new gourmet/upscale yogurt flavours, the chocolate praline and the caramelized pineapple and pecans.
