“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
I have never really been a one for yogurts, associating them with diets - watery and tasteless and eaten only as part of the daily calorie count!
As my pregnancy draws to an end I have started to investigate foods I wouldn't normally try - primarily because I don't have the energy to cook and I'm looking for quick tasty nibbles that won't leave me feeling too full!
For some reason whilst in Sainsbury's last night I 'fancied' a yogurt, not the boring low fat variety. Something creamy and tasty. You would not believe how long it took to find such an item! The Muller Amore was one of only two choices! Very disappointing but needs must!
The 150g yogurt isn't isn't served in the typical standard tall pot, I would liken the container to that of a shop bought snack size cheesecake. The foil lid is easily removed to reveal a lovely gentle orange aroma. The yogurt looks really thick, more like orange tainted double cream - with tiny orange flecks!
My spoon was able to sit on the top and did not sink!! Now that's thick :-)
With regards to taste, this yogurt is lovely! The orange flavour is evident, quite strong but not overpowering - it's also slightly tart, leaving an orangey aftertaste on your tongue.
Unfortunately this taste and creamy texture comes at a price, I'm not referring to cost (65p per pot or 4 for £2.00!), I'm referring to calories. 100g contains 145kcal's equating to approximately 217 kcals per pot.
Although as I would liken this yogurt to a dessert - I think it is 217 Kcals well spent!

If these are ever on offer in Sainsburys they go straight in the trolley. They are quite expensive for yoghurts at around 70p each for a 150g tub, but they are sometimes on offer at 2 for £1.00 which I think is a more acceptable price (this is only because I'm a scrooge, and live on a budget, not because they're not worth it!).
The yoghurts come in a tub with a peel back lid, I think the tub is cardboard, it certainly feels that way, but I can't see the recyclable sign on it, which is much nicer than a horrible plastic pot, it straight away makes you think it's better quality before you have even tasted it.
The orange flavour of this yoghurt is actually listed as Spanish Orange, which makes it sound very exotic.
The taste of this yoghurt is extremely creamy, it is very thick and quite sweet, and there are little bits of orange in there. The orange flavour is not too intense but it tastes like real oranges, it is better than a lot of other yoghurts, and although this is sweet it hasn't got that horrible taste of sweeteners, it's just good old fatty sugar.
It says on the tub that there is 7.3g of fat per 100g of this yoghurt, but to be honest it tastes so nice who really cares. These are definitely an indulgent yoghurt and I would highly recommend them. They are creamy and tasty and the fruit in them is lovely.
I definitely have a bit of a sweet tooth and although I do try to eat quite healthily I do have the odd treat. These Amore yoghurts are absolutely delicious but unfortunately they are a bit naughty fat and sugar wise so they are definitely on the treat list.

Amore yoghurts look very luxurious they come in a dark blue container which has images of oranges, the logo and the nutritional information around the container. The lid is made of foil and is the same dark blue colour as the container. The lid has an image of a slice of orange on the top and the Amore logo which is written in smooth white words. The pot looks very indulgent indeed and whenever I see one I find it hard to resist! Each pot is a 150g.
When you peel off the lid you are hit with a nice orangey creamy smell, it smells nice and fresh but not too overpowering. The yoghurt is a nice silky creamy texture and there are pieces of orange in the yoghurt which do not look at all slimy. The taste of the yoghurt is amazing, it is a gorgeous blend of tangy sweet orange and smooth creamy yoghurt. The tanginess of the orange is really nice and not too sour or bitter, the yoghurt is really creamy and I think this would get a bit sickly if you attempted to eat more than one yoghurt.
These yogurts are generally around the 65p mark in supermarkets but they are luxury yoghurts. Also a lot of supermarkets have them on offer from time to time. I'm glad they aren't super cheap anyway because I'd end up buying them all the time and I don't want to end up as round as an orange.
These yoghurts really are tasty but is there any wonder when they contain as much fat and sugar as they do. Why is it always the bad stuff that tastes so good? I would recommend these yoghurts as a treat on the odd occasion but I generally try to avoid them on the weekly shop due to their naughtiness!
I've never tried a Muller Amore before so when I saw that Morrison's had an offer on them I decided to take the plunge and see what they were like.
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 ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Whipping Cream (18%), Sugar, Oranges (11%), Corn Flour, Lemon Juice From Concentrate, Natural Colour: Carotenes, Natural Flavourings.
Nutritional Information per 100g
Energy kJ: 607kJ
of which total sugars: 16.0g
(of which saturates): 4.5g
Allergy information: contains milk.
Once you've pulled the lid off you'll see the yogurt which is smooth looking and slightly off white. There are small pieces of orange nestling in the yogurt and it looks slightly thicker than most of the Muller Light flavours do.
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:
What can I say but yum! There's none of the artificial sweetener taste that you get with some of the Muller Light flavours which contain aspartame or acesulfame K and the fact that this contains both yogurt and whipping cream means that it's smoother, richer and creamier than other yogurts that I've tasted. The orange flavour has been pitched at just about the right level. It's strong enough so that you can tell without fail that it's orange but it's not so strong that it's completely overpowering. It 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. Whilst most Muller Light yogurts come in at around 100 calories per pot this Amore flavour comes in at just under 220 calories. If it's a choice between taste or calories then I'd pick this over a Muller Light yogurt anyday unless I really was attempting to control my calorie intake.

-- Introduction --
Amore is a premium brand of yogurt said to contain the finest natural ingredients. I had noticed this brand many times before, at 65p per pot it is rather more expensive than the usual brand of yogurt. As it was on multi-buy offer, I found myself putting this in my shopping basket.
-- Packaging --
The dark blue foil lid with vivid orange slice on the top does scream out at you amongst the many pale coloured pots in the yogurt aisle. The Amore logo makes it look expensive and indulgent. It is almost saying "go on pick me - you know I'm worth it". The 150 g plastic pot has all the nutritional information and ingredients lised.
-- Taste --
Once I peeled back the lid, the yogurt was of a smooth creamy texture, slightly saffron orange in colour and thicker than the usual fruit yogurt. There were small pieces of orange mixed in with the yogurt. There was a slight hint of orange fragrance that made me want to dip my spoon into the yogurt and have the first mouthful.
The taste, for an yogurt, is deliciously outstanding. It had a creamy taste with the orange flavour coming through and felt as though I was tasting an indulgent desert. The whole experience was a treat for the taste buds.
-- Contents and nutritional information--
It contains whipping cream in addition to yogurt that accounts for the creamy taste. 100g of the yogurt has 145 kcal and 7.3g of fat of which 4.5g is saturated. So a pot of yogurt is over 10 g of fat and 200 calories!
-- My opinion --
I found this yogurt to be filling with a rich creamy taste. I feel that it is a good substitute for a desert. I recommend you to indulge in this experience but the high fat content does not make it suitable for every day diet.
Tescos currently have an offer on Muller Amore yoghurts, which I have never tried before. The offer is 8 yoghurts (150g) on a range of flavours for £2. I was getting a bit fed up of the Muller Lights so I decided it was time for a bargain induced change. One of the flavours I purchases was the orange yogurt flavour.
What is it? Muller Amore contains indulgent spoonfuls of orange yoghurt that are made from "the finest natural ingredients". The Amore range, appear to be premium looking yoghurts that are not as low fat as some of the other Muller yoghurts such as Muller light.
Packaging: The packaging is quite flash with a dark blue pealable foil lid, and a dark blue container. The lid contains a picture of an orange slice, and there are pictures of whole oranges on the container. The Amore logo is written in italics and looks indulgent. The weight of the pot is 150 g.
Appearance: The yoghurt looks quite thick and creamy. I was also pleased to see small pieces of orange well distributed in the yoghurt that do not appear lumpy or unappetising. I am not a big fan of large pieces of fruit in yoghurts.
Smell: The smell is quite light, with a hint of orange that is mixed in cream. It is quite a pleasant smell and I found that I wanted to start consuming the yoghurt.
Taste: The yoghurt is a rich blend of tangy orange, cream and yoghurt. The overall flavour is very nice and quite filling. However, the cream is quite noticeable, and it does make you wonder how healthy the product is, particularly when the ingredients state the yoghurt contains 18% whipping cream...
...Healthy?: The fat content appears to be quite high due to the presence of the whipping cream. 100 g of the yoghurt contains 7.3g of fat, and 4.5 g of saturated fat. Note - the yoghurt is 150 g, so the overall fat content per pot is 10.95g of fat and 6.75 g of saturated fat. The guideline daily amount for an adult for fat is 70g and saturated fat, 20g. So just 1 yoghurt represents 15.6% of your recommended fat intake and a exceptionally high 33.75% of your recommended saturated fat intake. The cynic in me noticed that the %RDAs are only included for calcium and not for the other components in the yoghurt - I wonder why?!
Value for money: 8 yoghurts for £2 is good value for money, and is cheaper than chocolate.
Overall: I found the yoghurt had a very nice orange creamy flavour and is quite filling. But beware - the yoghurt contains whipping cream and an estimated 1/3 of your recommended daily saturated fat intake. I think this is particularly unhealthy for a yoghurt, as yoghurts are typically renowned for being a healthier snack option.

These are absolutely deliciously, very creamy and have real orange bits in. They are expensive though, between 65p and 75p each, depending on where you shop. You can sometimes get them on offer, they have been 5 for a pound and 4 for a pound in Tesco at various times.
There are several different flavours but in my opinion, orange is in my top 2 (greek honey and walnut) is the other.
Of course them being so lovely comes at a price, they are super fattening! One pot has 10.95 grams of fat! The recommended daily intake for women is only 70 grams, so maybe save them as a treat. Also, they are quite calorific 217.5 calories per pot. Interestingly, the nutritional information on the side of the pot is given only per 100 grams, and as there is 150 grams in a pot, you can add another 50%, quite deceiving really.
On a healthy note, they contain 95mg of calcium, 18% of the recommended daily intake.
The yoghurt (if you can call it that as its 18% whipping cream) is made with all natural ingredients which I really like.
They are a good alternative to fromage frias for children.
When it comes to yogurt I'm a real fan of the stuff! I just love a cold, sweet full fat and full flavoured yogurt and enjoy it as a luxury pudding rather than buying low fat pots for the occasional treat and to keep healthy! I'm just not a health freak I suppose! lol. After having a different Amore yogurt a week or so ago I was desperate to continue trying their offerings because I really was impressed with the other flavour greatly! So this is usually about 59p a pot (not exactly cheap) but I got it on offer in Sainsbury's for 39p (limited time only). I saw a few flavours out on display (do look at the whole range if interested) and I opted for this orange one for a change cos to be honest I wouldn't normally buy an orange flavoured yogurt and felt daring!
150g round, quite large dark blue plastic pot. On the foil lid there is a photograph of a segment of orange resting on a spoon of white yogurt and I'm told in white and orange writing it is Muller, 'Amore.... For Me' Orange Yogurt. Again on the front of the tub I'm told it's Muller, Amore For Me, 'Indulgent Spoonfuls Of Orange Yogurt' and there is again a photograph of a segment of orange on there and a picture of an orange and around the back of the tub I'm told a little bit of information about the product, size is stated, I'm told where to find the best before date, ingredients and nutritional information is stated. On the bottom of the tub I'm told the product is suitable for vegetarians, contact details for Muller are given and finally there is a bar-code on there. All in all this is a nice, rather sophisticated and well thought out pot and doesn't look cheap and you sort of know just on the look of the pot that it's going to be excellent quality even if it's not to your taste entirely. I do also like the large size of this and at over 200 Cals for one tub I know this isn't going to be a run of the mill yogurt.
Am I Right??....
Of course I am! Opening the foil lid is easy and fuss free and it comes off cleanly revealing a semi-set peach coloured (but wibbly wobbly) light and fluffy looking creamy yogurt with lots of very small pieces of orange rind shredded into it. Smell wise it's really does smell of fresh natural oranges and it's simply gorgeous!
Taste wise if you love yogurt and you love zesty, fresh and juicy oranges (as I do this) is simply perfection in a tub for you. With the zesty oranges, the taste of indulgent light whippy cream, a natural sweetness it's simply beautiful and light in flavours though oh so tasty!. It really does taste of cream and oranges and is packed with natural flavours. Like I said earlier I like my yogurts to be a treat and don't mind them brimming with calories and/or fat providing they taste wonderful as I'll happily have one in place of a great big hot desert due to being a huge yogurt fan and this is worth any inches on the hips I may gain! It's sublime!
I love this yogurt and so far I love this wonderful range of luxurious yogurts and can see why in comparison with a lot of yogurts in stores it is a little higher in cost than many of them but it really it is wonderful, creamy and quality. I love it!

My favourite yoghurt is actually Onken's fruit yoghurt, especially as the individually packaged ones are so expensive! But my local Costcutter only stocks about 5 different types of yoghurt, none of them Onken, and most of them ridiculously overpriced.
Yoghurt is good as part of my lunch to take to work, and they were on offer at 69p for two, so I thought why not! I had the choice between this orange flavour and the plain yoghurt with dark chocolate chips - I like flavour in my yoghurt so I went for 2 orange ones.
The pot is quite big and a rich blue with a typical yoghurt pull-back lid. Once I opened the pot, the yoghurt was creamy white with bits of orange clearly visible in it. It does however need a quick stir before you start to eat it as otherwise it's a bit too chunky in some places and a bit too watery in others.
I was a bit apprehensive, but it tastes orangey all the way through, and there are lots of orange bits rather than tons of plain yoghurt with a minimal amount of topping like on Muller Corners - this has a more consistent taste of orange.
The yoghurt also tasted nice and fresh, and the two tastes combined really complemented each other and had quite a luxurious taste. As the pot is quite big you also get lots of mouthfuls.
If I were paying 69p for one it would be pushing it to say it's worth the money, but it does have both luxurious packaging and a luxurious taste.
Orange and really creamy this yoghurt is the must eat of all yoghurts.
This fruity treat is one of my favorite yoghurts and has all the qualities I adora. Pardon pun please.
But really is quite true I really do adore amor'e.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the pack was that the smell of oranges hits you full in the face right away, then you get the taste creamy yoghurt with nice bits of real fruit in this case orange all the way through to the last spoonful simply delicious.
I was hooked right from the first mouthful.
What attracted me to this yoghurt in the first place ? because as you know I am not a huge fan of the general run of the mill yoghurt. I was attracted to the packing a deep blue carton with large oranges on the front and sides either in segments or whole. The packaging looked inviting and really did make me want to buy one to try. Once I had of course and tried it I did I was completely hooked and now these little delights are a constant companion in my shop basket.
For me no other yoghurt will do.
Flavours on offer in my local shop are Strawberry, Orange, and Walnut and vanilla. Other flavours you can get are dark chocolate, and peach.
Looking out for those two as I so far have not managed to find them yet.
I thought an orange yoghurt was a bit of a silly idea when I bought this, but you know, whatever. Maybe I'm boring, I thought. Maybe I've been blind to the developments of the yoghurt industry. Or maybe they've just always been. I don't know. It doesn't really matter. I sat down to eat this and, licking the lid, I found my doubts quite encouraged by the flavour met with.
It's just weird. Sorry. It is. It's an orange yoghurt. Who thougth of that? I don't get it. Why? Why would you do that? Orange is an orange. Strawberry, sure. I agree. Vanilla. Yes. Okay. Peach. Cherry. Whatever - great. But orange? ORANGE? Orange juice. Not orange yoghurt.
It's a bit of an odd flavour, because it doesn't taste like orange but it tastes like it's trying to taste like orange which really isn't pleasant at all. It's kind of tangy. I got used to it for a while but there's so much PULP in this. I don't know if pulp is the right word. Little stringy bits of orange - a load of it mixed in with the yoghurtyness. I quite liked this in the other flavours but in this it was just dodgy, because no one really likes the orange pulpyness which is why smooth orange juice is so popular.
I don't know. It grew very unpleasant as I continued eating. I can still taste it at the back of my mouth which isn't very nice, because I fancied some beans on toast, you know. And now it will taste all fake orangey. Which sucks. Because you're not meant to have orangey bread or beans, either.
"A taste of indulgence". I guess that's a nicer way of putting THIS IS INCREDIBLY UNHEALTHY AND YOU WILL DIE (erm, yeah. slight exaggeration, but..) into words. A little more attractive to the consumer. Indulgence. Mmm. Yes. Death. Ahhh. Not so good. No. It contains 6.8g of saturates, 11g of fat, 218 calories, 24g of sugar. You may as well give up. Seriously. How can they make orange so freaking unhealthy?
But I don't care about all of the above. I could live with the flavour. It's alright. The yoghurt itself is thick and creamy and pleasant. I don't really appreciate the tang or the taste left behind but I'd eat if it were the last food available in my local Tesco or something.
It's the COST. Dear God - this is 68p! I've already discussed the pure insanity of this in my other review, but it still shocks me. Truly. Does anyone buy it at this price? Please tell me no. I do not envy you - you have no mind!
These are on offer for 5 for £1 right now though, so go buy. Or you could buy real oranges which might make more sense.
