“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
I am a bit addicted to Muller Corner strawberry yoghurts at the moment, but spotting this in my local shop I thought it would make a nice change. Mine cost 65p but I am sure they would be cheaper in supermarkets, and are probably available on offer from time to time.
For anyone not familiar with Muller Corners, the tub is square and, when you pull back the lid, the tub is divided into two compartments - one bigger for the yoghurt and one smaller for the extra stuff! There are many products in this range and the extra stuff ranges from fruit to chocolate balls. And, in this case, the extra bits are crunchy granola with pieces of strawberry.
The yoghurt itself is plain yoghurt, and is quite thick and creamy, and very sweet - this product does contain a lot of sugar I think. The pieces of granola range in size from small to tiny, and there are a few bits of dried strawberry dotted around, but not masses. I tipped all the crunchy bits into my yoghurt and gave it a good stir, meaning that every spoonful I had included a nice bit of crunch.
The granola itself was very crunchy and pleasant to eat, and - like the yoghurt - quite sweet. The fruit pieces added an interesting dimension to the yoghurt but were a bit sticky and I did find myself having a few bits stuck to my teeth! As I was eating this at work, this was really a look I would rather have avoided.
I really enjoyed this product and, for a yoghurt, found it pleasantly filling and a nice breakfast. The combination of the creamy yoghurt, crunchy granola and sticky strawberries worked really nicely and I thoroughly enjoyed eating it. I am not sure I would call it healthy as, although reasonably low in fat and calories (150 calories and 3.5g of fat) and made from all natural ingredients, I do think the product contains a lot of sugar.
Muller corner Bioyoghurt with Strawberry Granola - Deal or no Deal?
This product shows the power of advertising, through sponsoring TV programmes. And indeed, I must confess that I regularly watch Deal or no deal, which is how I first became aware of the subject of this review, Muller corner Bioyoghurt with Strawberry Granola.
During last weeks trip to Tescos, I spotted a multibuy offer of 5 Muller bioyoghurts for £1. For all of you regular Muller yoghurt consumers out there, I'm sure you know that this is a bargain. So in the words of the marmite presenter Noel Edmonds (you'll either love him or hate him!), is it Deal or no Deal for this yoghurt?
Appearance and packaging: The yoghurt itself is presented in a similar packaging to all of the other corner flavours, in a plastic pot (135g) with an easy to peel foil lid. The lid is colourful and noticeable, with a picture of a strawberry, oats and a creamy yogurt. After eagerly peeling the lid away, you will be greeted with a thickish and white creamy yoghurt in the main portion of the pot, with some appetising looking granola, consisting of oats and bits of berry. The yoghurt looks appealing enough and does not have a layer of water on top, which can be a problem with this type of product.
Smell and taste: The yoghurt itself is not much to write home about. I found it a bit bland and tasteless with no real distinctive smell. However, things take a much better turn for the taste buds when you mix in the muesli type granola which blends well with the yoghurt. It gives a very satisfying creamy crunch, though those of you with susceptible teeth may find the granola a bit too chewy. All in all, the yoghurt made a more that satisfactory snack after lunch, but don't try the yoghurt until you have mixed in the granola.
Healthy?: For all those health conscious folks out there you will be pleased to know this yoghurt is low in fat and is made with all natural ingredients. However, there is still quite a high amount of sugars present, 12.5g per 100 g, probably due to the oats in the granola. Full nutritional information is given below.

Deal or no Deal?: Deal. It is not a 5 star product because of the bland yoghurt when tried alone, but is perfectly tasty once you have mixed in the granola.
