“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
I don't eat all that many yogurts but my mate gave me one of these cherry flavour Muller Amore yogurts yesterday and it was delish..... even though there are sooooo many calories in it I might as well have had a proper pudding! lol
The yogurt is madly thick and has got a yummy flavour, it's made with whipping cream so that explains why it's so high in calories and also why it's so thick. When you put the spoon in it comes out COVERED with yogurt and that's without even scooping any up! The yogurt smells very fruity and you can tell just from the smell that it's cherry flavour, I can taste the cream in it as well and even though I'm not mad keen on cream I thought I'd probably like the taste of this because of how good the creamy and cherry smells go together.
There are LOADS of big pieces of cherry in the yogurt and I was mega happy about that because the last cherry yogurt I brought was from Asda and there was about 2 tiny pieces of soggy cherry in that! lol
When I had the first spoon full I thought "Baby, where you been all my life???" This yogurt is DELISH! The cherry flavour is strong and fruity, you can taste the cream in the yogurt and that makes it taste more like a dessert than a yogurt..... then again there is NOTHING healthy about this range of yogurts so who cares? lol
The yogurt is smooth and majorly creamy, it's got a gorgeous texture that makes it feel refreshing and like a treat at the same time. It's also very filling for a yogurt and if you had one of these as a snack at any time of day I reckon it would keep you full up for ages. The cherry pieces are wicked, they're big and juicy and have deffo kept the flavour of fresh cherries. Nearly every spoon had at least one cherry piece in it and they were lovely to chomp on after swallowing the actual yogurt.... I don't know if there's enough in there for this yogurt to count as 1 of your 5 a day but any added extra fruit has got to be good.
I'll deffo buy this yogurt again, actually my mate has just rung and she said they're on special offer at the minute so I'm going to head up to Asda in a bit to stock up on some of the different flavours. They're quite expensive to buy on their own and cost over 60p so if you can see them on special offer then I'd deffo take advantage because 60p for one yogurt is taking the mick a bit I think.
Recommended..... delish yogurt!!!
I am a huge fan of yoghurt but for some reason I only buy them occasionally. They are something I easily forget to add to my shopping each week, even though I enjoy them immensely. Recently I was craving something other than chocolate for a change and decided to try Muller's Amore yoghurt.
I won't deny the main reason I opted for this yoghurt was because it was classed as a 'luxury' yoghurt. Anything that is luxury in my books is worth a try and I certainly wanted something that was going to cheer me up, and I was not left disappointed with my choice!
There are various flavours in the Amore range, but cherry has always been a firm favourite of mine in any yoghurt so I opted for this one. They were on offer in Asda at 4 pots for £2.00 which is a reasonable price to me, or you can buy them individually at 58p a pot. Each pot is 150g which to me is just about the right amount for this kind of yoghurt.
On opening the pot I was very pleased to see that this yoghurt has a wonderful consistency and is luxuriously thick and creamy looking. Even with just dipping your spoon into the pot for a mouthful you can tell that it's going to taste scrummy. I was very pleased with how many actual cherry pieces there are too. As anyone knows it's not unusual for a product which contains fruit pieces to be rather sparse in the offering but the Amore yoghurt has the perfect amount. There is a warning on the pot that there could still be cherry stones inside but so far I have not come across this. I hope that I don't too, as I had a nasty big stone in another brand of yoghurt once and it turned me right off! However, the taste of this cherry yoghurt is an absolute delight and is probably helped by the fact that there is 18% whipping cream in the mix, and you can most definitely taste it. At 143 calories per 100 grams it isn't the healthiest choice in yoghurt but I didn't pick it for that reason so I was very happy to indulge myself.
If your a fan of yoghurt then Amore should be one for you to try. I have ordered them again on my next shop and they make a lovely treat in place of something like chocolate if your perhaps on a chocolate overload, which I was! Sit down, relax and enjoy every spoonful.
When I recently took advantage of the Morrisons offer of 5 Amore yoghurts for £1.28 I made sure I bought some of the cherry flavour ones. I love cherry flavouring and I knew I liked these cherry yoghurts because I'd tried that particular flavour previously.
Muller Amore yoghurts are not for weight watchers, they are thick and creamy and have plenty of fat, sugar and calories. The nutritional statistics per 100g are: 143 calories, 2.6g protein, 16.8g carbohydrate of which 15.8g sugars, 7.3g fat of which 4.5g saturates, 0.2g fibre and 91mg calcium. As you can see they are not really healthy and alot of the fat comes from the fact they contain 18% whipping cream. However for us females the calcium is well worth having.
The tub is actually blue with a picture of a spoon containing yoghurt with a cherry sat on top rather than the red tub in the picture above. Each tub contains 150g so make sure you add another 50% onto the statistics if you are trying to count calories etc.
The yoghurt is very thick, as I said before not quite thick enough to stand a spoon up in but not far off! The spoon will slowly slide down but the texture of these yoghurts is far from runny. The cherry one is a dark cherry colour and has bits of cherries chopped up in it which add to the delicious flavour.
I always think cherry flavour is bittersweet regardless of what form it comes in and these yoghurts are no exception, the sweetness of cherries hits you first to be followed by a slightly bitter aftertaste mixed in with the natural sourness of yoghurt. However it's expected and really what you're signing up for when you choose a cherry flavour one.
They are rich and luxurious in texture, the chopped cherry pieces make for a bit of juicy fruit in each mouthful and the bittersweet flavour is perfect for those of us who don't have a sweet tooth but want something as a dessert.
I would recommend these for anyone who likes cherry flavour yoghurt, probably not for kids as they are not only a bit bitter but also very high in fat, calories and sugar for children, and for adults as an occasional treat rather than a regular one because of the statistics. I do love this flavour though, I'm not someone who would like chocolate flavour yoghurts or yoghurts that are really sweet and this cherry one is just sweet enough.
A full 5 stars from me and if you haven't tried them I recommend you do, they're lovely!
Being a big fan of cherry flavoured yogurts I had intended to save this flavour until last before I road tested it. But, the temptation got too much so the choice between peach and strawberry was abandoned and I plumped for this instead.
Muller Amore pots weigh in at 150g and therefore contain less yogurt than the Muller Light and Muller Fruit Corner brands. Predominantly navy blue in colour the Amore pots stand out amongst the rest of the yogurts in the supermarket fridges. The pot is covered with the usual foil lid and has the ingredients and nutritional information listed on the side. The website address: www.muller.co.uk is listed on the bottom of the pot.
The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Whipping Cream (18%), Sugar, Cherries (11%), Corn Flour, Lemon Juice From Concentrate, Natural Flavourings.
Nutritional Information per 100g
Energy kJ: 600kJ
of which total sugars: 15.8g
(of which saturates): 4.5g
Allergy information: contains milk. May contain cherry stones.
Once you've pulled the lid off you'll see the yogurt which is smooth and a rich pink colour. As with the other Amore flavours it does look to be thicker than a number of other yogurts that are available to buy. You can see bits of cherry nestling in the yogurt and these look to be fairly sizeable.
At time of Morrisons were selling these for 64p on a buy two get 3 free. So, in other words 5 yogurts for £1.28.
Taste and opinion:
My third pot of Muller Amore within a week. As I mentioned at the top cherry is one of my favourite yogurt flavours so I was keen to see how this compared with the Muller Light Cherry flavour and some of the others that I've tried out over the years. Like the previous two flavours I've tried this was another rich and creamy treat for the palate. The pieces of cherry with a nice size and were soft and chewy, although obviously if you're the sort of person that doesn't like bits of fruit in their yogurt then this is something you'd need to avoid. Despite the blurb on the pot I didn't encounter any cherry stones.
Like the previous flavours I've tried there's none of the artificial sweetener taste that you get with some of the Muller Light flavours which contain aspartame or acesulfame K which is what makes these so much nice than the Muller Lights for example. This flavour hasn't even got any natural colourings like some of the other flavours have. You really can taste the difference in taste, quality and smoothness between this and the Muller Light version of the flavour. Needless to say that this one wins hands down.
Like the rest of the range this really does taste like an indulgent, premium dessert and, as such, contains more sugar, fat and calories than you'd find in a Muller Light yogurt (although not quite as much as you'll find in the Walnut and Greek Yogurt flavour). Whilst most Muller Light yogurts come in at around 100 calories per pot this Amore flavour comes in at around 215 calories. It will also provide you with 17% of your recommended daily amount of calcium. If you're the sort of person that's concerned about the additives and preservatives that some companies are putting into our food then you can eat this without worrying how many "E" numbers there are or exactly what that very long, almost unpronounceable scientific sounding name actually is.
In terms of the Muller Amore flavours then this is my favourite of the three I've tried so far. A recommended purchase from me.
Muller have some cracking offers in the supermarkets at the moment, the multi packs of Muller light yoghurt's are on offer at ridiculously low prices. If you happened to be passing a Lidls store within the last week the Muller rice has been on offer at 20p a pot.
The Muller Amore yoghurt's are a class act, Muller have gone all out to impress with these sophisticated pots of thick creamy yoghurt.
In Sainsburys you can expect to pay in excess of 45p a pot for them, Morrison's have them on offer, three pots for £1 but I struck lucky and managed to buy four pots for £1 in our local frozen food cut price store.
They had two flavours on offer, the Morello cherry yoghurt and the vanilla and chocolate flake yoghurt, I love both so I bought two tubs of each.
Muller have created an elegant cardboard tub for their up market yoghurt. The rich royal blue tub is dripping with ripe Morello cherries and on the foil lid there is a tempting picture of a spoonful of thick creamy yoghurt with a luscious cherry sitting in the middle of the spoonful of yoghurt.
The foil lids just peels back and the contents of the tub are laid bare. The Amore cherry yoghurt is so thick that it sits firmly in the cardboard tub, only relenting when the spoon is dipped into it.
The yoghurt is cherry coloured but at least it looks authentic, last week I bought a large pot of Onken cherry yoghurt and I was a little alarmed at the artificial colour.
The thick yoghurt deserves to be eaten at a time when you can make the very most of it, it is far too good to hurry.
You will notice that the edge of the spoon almost slices the yoghurt, that shows just how thick and creamy it is.
From my point of view the Muller Amore just has to be one of the best yoghurt's there is to be had, you can taste the cream as soon as it enters your mouth, yet the cherry yoghurt is not too sweet.
Even the vanilla and chocolate flake Muller is not too sweet either.
Muller describe the yoghurt as indulgent and full of chunks of Morello cherry and they have hit the nail on the head.
Most of us associate yoghurt with healthy eating plans or diets but the Amore yoghurt is quite high in calories. The 150 g tub contains about 210 calories which is far far higher than most of its counterparts.
Take a look at the ingredients and you will see that the yoghurt contains whipping cream, sugar, yoghurt, lemon juice, cherries and natural flavourings.
Every 100 g of Muller amore contains 16.8 carbohydrates and 15.8 of that comprises of sugar.
There are 7.3g of fat and 4.5g of this is saturated fat.
I think that this only goes to show that not all yoghurt's are as good for you as they appear and maybe that we should only consider buying the Muller Amore as a treat rather than an everyday dessert.
I love the pots of fruit fool that you can buy and the consistency of the Muller Amore reminds me of them.
Amore just has to be one of the most luxurious yoghurt's that is on offer and it has everything going for it. The creaminess is superb, the yoghurt has chunks of cherry as opposed to just the odd piece and it tastes very natural.
They may be indulgent but if they still have them on offer when I pass by the shop tomorrow there will be four more sitting in my fridge waiting to be enjoyed.
Before I get into this review I just want to point out that I did request a link to review 'Cherry Amore' yogurt and not actually Morello cherry flavour as this link suggests but I got directed to here and no link is given lol. Not only have I not seen the morello cherry flavour in-store I never even knew that it existed had I have done I'd have bought that probably instead of this lol!
at the moment I'm loving yogurt and particularly loving this juicy, natural indulgent range and definitely happy to work my way through the range as quickly as possible!
150ml dark dark blue plastic tub with matching coloured lid with a photograph of yogurt with a cherry sitting in it on a spoon. In white and red writing on the lid and around the pot I'm told it is Muller Amore 'for Me' Cherry Yogurt and the best before date is stamped on the lid in black ink. I am told it is 'indulgent chunky red cherry yogurt... all from the finest natural ingredients', weight is stated, I'm told where to find the best before date, nutritional information and finally ingredients are clearly listed on there to. On the base of the tub (which is white) I'm told it's suitable for vegetarians, I'm told once again it is cherry flavour, contact details for Muller are given and finally there is a bar-code on there. Classy looking tub, large in size and the lid peels off quickly and with ease so no faffing about required! There is nothing to complain about packaging wise with this at all.
The Yogurt Itself....
It's wibbly wobbly and partially set. Colour wise it's a light pink colour, slightly whipped looking with lots of pieces of juicy cherry scattered through out it. Scent wise you can really smell cream mixed with Cherry's and it doesn't smell unnatural or heavily sweetened to my nostrils. It just simply smells luxurious and looks the same as that!
Taste wise...well it's totally grown up and sophisticated. It's quite thick and gloopy looking with a nice shine to it. You can really taste the tartness of the plain yogurt in this delicately thickened and whipped with what tastes like fresh cream and sugar (which are ingredients in this product). Although fairly thick in it's appearance it really is light and moreish and I really like everything about this yogurt from the appearance of the pot to the colour of the yogurt to the full fat flavour and it being all fresh and juicy in the pot.
This isn't a healthy option though. It's full fat and full of flavour and rather than a healthy option is in some cases as unhealthy as a hot pudding but it's a must as a luxurious treat for true yogurt fans! Lovely!

"Muller surprise us with a new flavor."
But is anyone actually surprised? Somehow I doubt it. Wow. Cherry yoghurt. A real revolution of the yoghurt industry. Amazing what they can come up with, huh? No. It's really not surprising. It's no marvel. I lied. It's boring. It's a freaking cherry yoghurt and no one cares. Jeez. Everyone does cherry yoghurt. Tesco, Danone, Alpro. Weight Watchers even went and dared to make the almighty CHERRY YOGHURT. But it's Muller. So lets be surprised. Because it's a new flavour. And the new flavour is cherry.
Anyway I doubt anyone actually cares, but that little snippet is above my review, here, and it's like - what? Why? Who is surprised? No one is surprised, unless you've some phobia of cherries and then you come across this packaging in the store and gasp, wince at the mere sight of those delicious cherries, run home in streaming tears. I don't know if they're really delicious looking because I don't eat cherries. I cannot compare. But they're all shiny and stuff, so yes, they are probably delicious looking and this would surely escelate the reaction in some cherry phobic.
This is all speculation, sorry. Facts.
This is a yoghurt. It is a cherry yoghurt. It is made by Muller and has blue wrapping with a cherry on top.
This is a yoghurt and I opened it and it was pink inside. I was rather shocked at the wateryness but then I remembered this was yoghurt so mixed it with a spoon and it was rather nice and creamy.
Oh. It's so blah blah blah.
Anyway, I do think this yoghurt was rather nice. Licking the cover, I was a bit confused at the taste because it was a bit odd in flavour and I thought it would be the awful orange all over again. Thankfully, once I delved the spoon in and continued, 'twasn't so. It was quite nice. Usual Muller Amore creamy and thick, but not too much so. Nice texture, in short. Yes. I would say so.
But the flavour is weird. Interesting. I don't know if it tastes of cherries because, as I say, I don't really eat cherries. The last time I did was about a year ago. I don't think it really tastes of cherries, myself; but feel free to go and contradict me. I don't mind. I declare myself no cherryologist. I'm not actually a nutritionalist either but I have to say anyway that this is STUPIDLY UNHEALTHY. Yes. Indeed. I ate it anyway, I will say. But I'm stupid, so yeah. Wouldn't really recommend this, you dieters and carers of health out there.
Why? Well, well, well. I will not tell you. Because I am the holder of this information, and 'tis mine. No. I will tell you: 215 calories, 23.7g of sugar, 11g of fat, 6.8 saturates. BUT THERE'S 17% OF YOUR CALCIUM RDA. This surely makes it all better!
Except it doesn't. Really. That's pretty crap, in my books. 17% calcium for over 25% (fear my generalising mathematics) saturated fat. Hardly worth it, I should think.
But I ate it. So yes.
There are weird little bits of cherry or cherry stone or whatever, just parts of cherry in this and I have to say they were very nice. Much better than the strawberry. I actively searched for them, then eliminated them. In my belly.
Overall, a nice yoghurt I'd say. I wouldn't actually eat it again though because the flavour was a bit, er, weird and I'm too much of a conformist so will stick to strawberry and the like. Cherry, I mean, how OUT THERE is that?
But these are 68p a pot, which is a blatant rip-off. Only buy it in the next two days while the offer in Asda is 5 for £1, which is a slight improvement. If you buy them when the offer is off, I am scared of you and your extravagent spending. It's a freaking yoghurt. I could make a meal for that money.
Beans on toast, for example.
Muller surprise us with a new flavor.
