“ Brand: Müller / Type: Yoghurts „
Yesterday I reviewed the Mandarin flavour and noticed that there were 19 reviews already written. When I pulled up the Dooyoo screen for Apricot however there was just one little lonely review. Perhaps that means that this isn't a very popular flavours amongst your dooyoo-ers out there? Anyway here goes with the second from the six pack.
There are 6 pots of Muller Light Yogurt in this "collection". They are:-
+ 2 x Mandarin
+ 2 x Apricot
+ 2 x Smooth Peach and Pineapple
The six pots are held in place with a piece of sturdyish cardboard which is then covered a the usual type of plastic bag which Muller use for of their 6 packs. This one is predominantly white in colour with pictures of apricots, mandarins, peaches & pineapples. The back of the pack lists the ingredients & nutritional information for each of the three flavours of yoghurt as well as Muller's address & website:- www.muller.co.uk
The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Apricot (10%), Water, Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates, Stabilisers: Pectins, Sweetener: Aspartame

Allergy information: contains milk. contains a source of phenylalanine.
These desserts contain no artificial colours or preservatives.
The yogurt comes in a plastic white & orangey/browny pot. The pot is covered with the usual foil lid with a picture of some apricots on it. The pot tells us that it weighs 200g that there are 98 calories per pot, that it's fat free & that each pot will provide you with 32% of your Recommended Daily Amount of calcium. On opening the pot I can see that the yogurt is sort of off white colour with a slightly orange-ish tinge and a smooth appearance. In fact it could almost be an identical twin of the Mandarin flavour I had yesterday! As with the Mandarin flavour, you can see little flecks of what is presumably apricot laying in the yogurt but these are much smaller than the pieces of strawberry and cherry that you find in those particular flavours.
This yogurt has a similar consistency to the Mandarin flavour and is therefore thicker than the Strawberry, Cherry and Raspberry & Cranberry flavours. As with the Mandarin flavour, there's a slight citrus aroma to the yogurt and it has a smooth taste which slips down the throat very easily. Tastewise, this doesn't have the "edge" to it that the Mandarin and Raspberry & Cranberry flavours have. It's a smoother, sweeter, fresher taste than the Mandarin which makes it a much nice eating experience. As you dig below the surface of the yogurt with your spoon you actually realise that the pieces of apricot are a bit bigger than the bits of mandarin were in that flavour. They're nothing compared to the size of the strawberries or cherries but at least this time your mouth is aware of their presence and you can actually bit down into them with your teeth, not that they're particulary large or thick. And, the best thing is that, even though they're small, these little bits of apricot actually taste of apricot!
At time of writing the 6 pack is on offer in Morrison's for £1.40
This yogurt is an improvement on the mandarin flavour that I tried yesterday. I suppose if you had a penchant for sour tasting things you'd probably think that the mandarin flavour was better, but, as I said, this has less of an edge and is sweeter than the mandarin. The fact that the apricot pieces are slightly bigger makes a difference as you can actually bit into them. As with the mandarin flavour yogurt this is a virtually fat free product and will provide you with 31% of your RDA of calcium.
Content wise this yogurt contains both aspartame and gelatine, both of which some people have issues / concerns over, whilst tastewise I'd rank it third in terms of the Muller Light flavours I've tried so far. Try it, you might like it!
