“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
I like Muller Corner Yoghurts. I find the yoghurt very good quality & the fruit always tasty so I am always happy to try their limited editions
This was the same price as every other Muller Corner in my local Tesco. Around 50p each or 3 for £1.00. We bought a couple of these along with some others so that me & my Wife could try one.
The Yoghurt is the standard Muller natural yoghurt, with little flecks of dark chocolate in it. The chocolate flecks were so smalll that for me it made no difference to the texture or consitency. What id did do however was add a subtle layer of chocolate flavour to the fresh & tasty yoghurt.
The fruit sauce in the corner was as with most other varieties, thick, torte & full of actual fruit which in this case was whole black cherries. They taste great. A nice texture & good consistency. Not too sweet with juicy deep flavoured cherries.
The two go together really well & compliment each other nicely. The cherry flavour is much stronger & does dominate the subtle flavour of the yoghurt somewhat but you can still taste the freshness of the yoghurt & the dark chocolate's flavour.
I highly recommend this product. If you don't buy Mulelr Corner yoghurts, then this wouldn't be a bad place to start & I think that most people would like the brand. If you're a fan of Muller yoghurts, then I think that you will find this a nice change & something slightly different as not many of their items combine chocolate & fruit.
This is a Muller limited edition(shame).Arriving to your fridge in a recognisable square plastic container.The colour on the lid stands out as different to the other collections of Muller fruit corner.This has a more classic and suave appearance.
It is sectioned as normal for the yogurt that is Muller corners.he cherry puree is heavely,but if you have had the morello cherry one you will have an idea on the beautiful flavour.
The larger compartment having the natural yogurt in ,but this time it has a twist .Instead of being the boring yogurt that needs the other corner to give it life.This one has dark chocolate shavings mixed in.
The price and ingredients.
The price of these have always annoyed me.As they are constantly on offer in numerous supermarkets but on the rrp they are a bit expensive.Probably a good thing with being a bit more calorific than my usual low fat variety yogurt I buy.
They range in multipacks of 6 at the varying price of £2.80 upwards .Found on offer at buy one get one free or 2 for £5.
The price varies a lot more than other products.
The multipack contains 2 x strawberry,2 x rasperry and blackberry and 2 x Black cherry and dark chocolate.
Strawberry: Yogurt, Strawberries (12%), Sugar, Stabilisers: Pectins, Carob Bean Gum , Guar Gum, Flavourings, Citric Acid.
Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate: Yogurt, Water, Sugar, Black Cherries (8%), Corn Flour, Flavourings, Cocoa Mass, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates, Cocoa Powder, Butter, Dark Chocolate (0.5%).
Blackberry & Raspberry: Yogurt, Blackberries (9%), Sugar, Water, Raspberries (3%), Stabilisers: Pectins, Carob Bean Gum , Guar Gum, Flavourings, Citric Acid.
Quite a large array of ingredients which I am not majorly fussy about but wouldnt want these to be part of my daily liffestyle.More a rare treat.
Seeing as I am the only one in the house that likes dark chocolate,I get these babies all to myself aha.Do I sound happy?Sorry Im a foody,lol.
These flavoured Muller corners are worth the extra weightgain.They are as suave tasting as they look.
Muller have outdone themselves with this flavour.Hope it is a sign that they will be aiming at more unusual paletted flavours.
Something about this shouts too good for children.Or is that just in my head.....
If you like dark chocolate try it.
The Muller Black Cherry & Dark Chocolate Fruit Corner is a limited edition yogurt, presented in the same fashion as all Muller Corners, with a two compartment element to the pot.
While not the healthiest offering on the market, weighing in at just over 200 calories, this yogurt is certainly a treat in terms of taste, and one that I only would eat at breakfast or lunch in order to burn those sweet sweet calories over the course of the day!
The dark cherry puree, if you will, is very tasty and has a less sweet taste to it than the regular Cherry Fruit Corner. It combines perfectly with the creamy Muller yogurt, that has been augmented in this case by sprinklings of chocolate, which in my opinion, could be a little more generous but taste very nice nonetheless.
There's not masses to be said about this dessert, other than it is enjoyable and makes a change from the slightly more conservative Fruit Corner offerings. It is sweet to taste and the nutritional values are as follows:
of which sugars 15.7g
of which saturates 2.2g
Fibre and Sodium are negligible
Apparently, there are no artificial sweeteners, no artificial colours or preservatives and it contains 23% of Calcium RDA
Having previously only tried the strawberry flavoured Muller Corner I spotted this pack on offer in the supermarket at the weekend & decided to see what the other flavours were like:-
6 of these yogurts were packed together in a plastic 'sleeve' which is predominantly various shades of brown. It has the usual Muller Corner logo on the front along with a pictures of a strawberry, a cherry, some chocolate, a blackberry and a raspberry. The back contains the ingredients, nutritional information & a few other bits 'n' bobs including the website:- www.mullerdairy.co.uk.
This pack contains:
+ 2 x Strawberry
+ 2 x Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate (limited edition)
+ 2 x Blackberry and Raspberry
After opening the outer packaging you can see that the yogurt comes in the usual Muller corner container. This is basically a square piece of plastic with a small self contained triangle in one corner which holds the black cherry "sauce". There is a small gap between this and the larger triangle which contains the yogurt. The "pot" is covered with a lid which tells you the nutritional information (again), the weight (175g) and the fact that the product will provide you with 23% of your RDA of calcium.
The product describes itself as:- "Thick, creamy, yogurt sprinkled with Dark Chocolate with a Black Cherry fruit corner"
The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Water, Sugar, Black Cherries (8%), Corn Flour, Flavourings, Cocoa Mass, Lemon Juice from Concentrate, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate; Cocoa Powder, Butter, Dark Chocolate (0.5%)
Nutritional Information per 100g
Energy kJ: 487kJ
of which total sugars: 15.7g
(of which saturates): 2.2g
Allergy information: contains milk. May contain cherry stones
No artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners. A natural source of calcium
Once you've pulled the lid off you'll see the yogurt which is smooth and slightly off white. There are a few sprinkles in evidence, but on previous evidence I'm almost certain that they're going to be far too tiny to taste of anything whatsoever. As I've commented previously, what's the point of adding something to a product like this if it has no impact on the taste experience whatsoever?
As with all the Muller Corner's the "eater" now has a choice! Does (s)he:-
+ Eat the yogurt & Black Cherry separately?
+ Spoon the Black Cherry into the yogurt & mix then together.
+ Take some yogurt onto you spoon then dip into the Black Cherry & eat them together off the spoon.
I'm always tempted to pour the fruit corner into the yogurt and mix it all together but then I wouldn't be able to tell what the separate elements tasted of. So....
The yogurt is very smooth and has a really pleasant creamy consistency. It treads that sort of bitter - sweet line where it's really one thing nor the other. However, that doesn't mean it's bland because it isn't. It has a cooling taste as well so would be nice to eat after something hot I would think. In fact it tastes exactly the same as the yogurt in the Strawberry corner does. Proof, if any were needed, that those chocolate sprinkles bring absolutely nothing to the party.
The Black Cherry "sauce" is thicker in consistency, and seems to be even thicker than the Strawberry corner. It almost like jam in consistency. I push my spoon in and take a taste.It's quite sweet and you can taste bits of black cherry in the surrounding "sauce". They don't appear to have skimped on the cheeries as it seems packed with them! In fact there are more cherries in here than there are strawberry bits in the Strawberry corner.
Time to mix them together now then! I spoon the Black Cherry "sauce" into the yogurt and mix for a while. The yogurt goes a shade of reddy -pink and looks very appetising indeed. The yogurt still tastes very cooling even after you've added the Black Cherry stuff. Obviously it's not as smooth as it was before because it's now got bits of cherry lurking beneath the surface, but the cherry sauce and the yogurt combine well together to make a very tasty dessert. In fact, it would be very easy not to stop at just one point and polish the other off too.
At time of writing Morrisons had these on offer at 2 for £4, meaning that you get 12 yogurts in total.
This is a great dessert. The tricky question is it better than the Strawberry Corner? They're both really tasty but I think, overall, this one wins it by the tip of it's nose. It doesn't provide as much of your RDA of calcium (23%) as the Strawberry version does (27%) but I'm not going to quibble over 4% when something tastes as nice as this does. This has slightly more calories and slightly more sugar than the Strawberry corner but slightly less fat. Like it's counterpart there's no gelatine or aspartame for you to worry about either.
Obviously it's not going to the sort of thing for you if you don't like fruit in your yogurt (unless you just eat the yogurt and leave the fruit corner) but this is much tastier than any of the Muller Light products I've sampled or either of the Muller Crunch Corner making it, as far as I'm concerned Top of the Muller "Tree" at the moment. Check it out if you haven't yet tried it.
I saw these yogurts on offer in my local Co-op. Usually costing 62p each, were 8 for £2, making them a mere 25p each. Being a big fan of both chocolate and cherry, I decided to give them a whirl.Muller Corners come in allsorts of flavours but this limited edition one sounded very indulgent whilst being low in fat.
Standard Muller Corner packaging where you get the yogurt and then the fruit part in separate containers. In the corner it shows chunks of dark chocolate and some cherrys. Yum.
**The most important part...eating it**
On opening I was slightly disapointed, mainly because I was expecting an actual chocolate flavoured yogurt rather than a plain one with tiny specks of chocolate in it. On re-reading the packaging, I realised this was my own fault as this was stated.
The yogurt itself tastes very similar to just the regular muller corner yogurts, creamy and not too tangy... The chocolate seemed barely tasteble--- probably because it's in such tiny pieces. It did however taste good but certainly not of chocolate. The cherry part was the best bit, sweet and cherrylicious. I ate a bit of yogurt then the cherry compote, though next time (because i've still got quite a few of these to go through - thanks Co-op!) I shall probably tip the compote into the yogurt and mix it all up to see if that tastes better.

I was quite disappointed with the yogurt. Although I do love muller products and overall it tasted good... I think I expected as this was the first muller corner with chocolate, for it to be a bit more, well, chocolatey! I wouldn't choose this yogurt over the standard fruit/cherry muller corner as I didn't feel it tasted much different. If there are however people out there who have chocolate cravings and don't want to ruin their diets, maybe eating this very slowey and trying to taste the chocolate specks may curb your craving... or not?
having just tried black cherry with dark chocolate, I would like to ask you not to make it a limited edition but a regular flavour. It is absolutely delicious. and will always be a firm favourite of mine,as i just adore dark chocolate and therefore combined with muller yoghourt it is perfection in a pot.please please make it a regular flavour.I am sure everyone who tastes it will feel the same about it.I looked for it at my local supermarkets when i first heard about it, and after much searching i eventually found it in my local co-op(scot-mid).I will be back to-day for further supplies before it runs out.I hope to find it permanently on their shelves not just for a limited time as you are suggesting. I also love your muller rice pots, all the flavours are just great keep up the good work. making more delicious flavours.
Recently I saw a couple of reviews for this paticular brand of yoghurt here on Dooyoo and was more than a little intriqued. Hence why when I was shopping tonight at a generic 24 hr supermarket, I decided to pick up a couple and satisfy my curiosity. Why two yoghurts, I hear you ask, isn't one enough to try? Well, no actually it isn't because I knew that by the time I got home and unpacked the shopping, the temptation would be too much and I would have to tuck in and then my wife would go tomorrow when she saw the empty packet, "Where's mine then?" and this way if she tries it tomorrow and inevitably doesn't like it then I get to eat that one as well!!
So, after all that preamble- what did I think? Well, actually I thought it was rather scrummy! Like all Muller's fruit corners, on side is sweet, succulent black cherry filling and on the other, smooth creamy yoghurt sprinkled with dark chocolate. Put the two together and it is a recipe for a little spoonful of heaven!!
My one niggle- there is not enough dark chocolate to really taste and, under the juicy sweetness of the black cherry, the bitterness is kind of lost and feels a bit wasted! That does however make the subtle flavours of the dark chocolate all the more enjoyable when it does slink through the odd mouthful not overpowered by cherry. There are no artifical colours or preservatives and no artifical sweetners so the taste is a totally natural sensation that leaves your tastebuds all excited. Unfortunately, this yoghurt is something of a taste tease as, before you know it, the yoghurt is all gone. I could easily have wolfed down two of these and the yoghurt would not have touched the sides!!
At the minute, these are priced at 53p each in my local generic supermarket where every little helps, so they are not cheap. But they are certainly cheerful and a different experience to any other Muller range you will have tried.
Overall I would give this two thumbs up- though I think the yoghurt should come in a big, fat, greedy pig size portion as well as the regular size as one of these just wasn't enough...
Here's hoping the wife doesn't like hers tomorrow....
Here I am again writing about another yoghurt, maybe I am following in AmyAmy's footsteps.. Either that or I am raiding the fridge everyday to find something new in their that I can eat.. Either way, I am eats lots of yoghurts and all the reviews thoughts and feelings about them are coming your way..
Though I don't think that is a bad thing, at least you know what to buy and what not to buy...
Anyway after a dash around my local Asda in the search for something to eat, I found these yoghurts similarly to the other yoghurt review I did, the 30p a yoghurt sort of stood out for me - more food to try and review - Yay!
I think I've become what's known as obsessed with reviewing!! Is that Sad???
So anyway because this Muller Corner, had the word fruit written on it I thought well it might be healthier than the last one I reviewed - which by the way to 'barbien5' I did not expect the last yoghurt to be super healthy it was just that it seemed healthier than the desserts I usually eat!!
~*~ Packaging ~*~
As usual as it is a Muller corner yoghurt it comes in the square packaging with the separate pots for the yoghurt and one for the dark cherry filling, as always leave it out of the fridge too long and the lids start to sag in the middle if you don't take them off...
The lid is not all that special just the usual foil lid with the Muller Fruit Corner logo emblazoned across it with the 'Limited Edition' in what would be classed as cherry coloured writing I assume on a gold background.. I guess this makes it look a little more special but still to me it is just a yoghurt......
~*~ Look, Smell and Taste ~*~
As I pealed off the lid and some of the yoghurt on top splattered across my laptop I learned maybe to open yoghurts away from peoples faces and expensive bits of technology... Anyway, it is nicely separated into the two separate sections with the bendable section to pour in your cherry.. The cherry itself does look very sweet and it seems as though it has bits in which is a little texture to the yoghurt - as Amy said the yoghurt is reminiscent of the Amore yoghurt with vanilla and dark chocolate sprinkles.. Which I loved we will have to see if it matches up...It is a plain off white colour with little brown splodges doesn't sound to appetising does it?..
As I sit here by the window I am once again smelling my yoghurt and unlike this time there is someone walking past and giving me a weird look - can't blame them who really sits and smells and yoghurt???
Well the cherry gives of a very sweet aroma almost smells a tiny bit perfumey which worries me about the taste - however we shall see...
The yoghurt itself smells as most sweeter and vanilla yoghurts do from Muller - Sickly.. I am hoping it isn't but we shall have to wait and see as you cannot smell the chocolate just an overall aroma of cherries...
The cherries as the first hit your tongue do seem very strong and the perfumey smell isn't reflected in the taste thank fully, else I think it could be ruined, the cherries do indeed have little bits in which does give it a nice texture and takes your mind away from the fact it is quite sweet..
The yoghurt on its own however is not as similar to the Amore version as I would have liked, it is a little sharp on your tongue, and after a few seconds the sweetness does come through but it still leaves an acidic taste in your mouth..
Once the cherries have been mixed in - and if you mix your yoghurts anything like I do then beware for a mess around the edge of the yoghurt carton.. The redeeming feature of this yoghurt is that once it is mixed it actually has a pleasant but slightly acidic taste.. Not acidic enough for me to want to put it right in the bin.. It is quite a pleasurable taste actually.. Although once the cherries are mixed in it is hard to pick out the flavour of the chocolate which is a shame really..

~*~ Overall ~*~
Well for a fruity yoghurt there certainly isn't as much fruit as I would have liked, as little corner filled with fruit wasn't really enough to warrant it as a Muller Fruit Corner.. Surely the essence of fruit and the idea behind a fruity yoghurt is taken away by the chocolate.. Then again I think the chocolate was a total waste of time anyway because once mixed with the cherry, it disappears into thin air, which is a bit of a shame because it was the chocolate and the vanilla yoghurt that attracted me to it in the first place.. After eating though there is no sickly taste which makes a change - so I cant complain about that! As I say for 30p and a change it is definitely worth giving it a try - who knows you might even like it..
I wasn't too hungry this morning, but still wanted to have my daily breakfast, as I don't feel right without it, so instead of my usual oatmeal and blueberries/raspberries, I decided to just grab a yoghurt from the fridge - this time, it was the Limited Edition Muller Fruit Corner, Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate, it looked delicious and my mouth was watering just looking at the picture on the lid!
Just like the Muller Crunch Corners, it comes in a white plastic split pot, containing 2/3 yoghurt, 1/3 black cherry sauce and black cherries. The lid of this yoghurt is very different from the usual blue and white lid that I'm used to seeing on muller corner yoghurts. Maybe because this is a limited edition?
It's a very rich, purple coloured lid with a white blob in the middle which hosts the Muller Fruit Corner logo. There is also a picture of what looks to me like succulents, juicy black cherries. Yummy! And then we have the little gold limited edition logo. Actually, looking at this yoghurt, it looks quite expensive (well it would if the muller logo wasn't visible).
On the lid, it claims to be a 'thick, creamy yoghurt sprinkled with Dark Chocolate, with a Black Cherry fruit corner'. So what would it smell like when I peeled back the lid? Cherry? Chocolate? The 'thick, creamy yoghurt' that hasn't been given a flavour?
I peeled back the foil lid, and wasn't hit with any kind of smell really. Then I started to smell the absolutely delicious (!!!!!) scent of cherries. Now, I don't actually like cherries, but I love all things cherry flavoured and cherry scented, so this was perfect. It really did smell delicious. The black cherry fruit corner was dark purple/red, shiny and looked to be of medium consistency. There were also plenty half cherries in the sauce - it looked amazing. The yoghurt itself was white, thick, creamy and shiny - much like vanilla yoghurt - with tiny black dots in it, I assumed this was the chocolate.
Well it looked delicious, but what about the taste test?
I sampled a little of each side before deciding how to eat it. The cherry corner was delicious, sweet but not too sweet, fruity but not too strong, thick but not sticky - perfect really. The yoghurt was rather disappointing. If it was just meant to be vanilla yoghurt, then it would wonderful, but it wasn't, it was meant to be vanilla yoghurt with chocolate in it. It must be cheap, crappy chocolate as I can't taste it, and the chips are so small that it feels like little exfoliating beads!!
Anyway, I decided to mix the two together anyway, and this formed a pinkish purple yoghurt with black dots in it. It was delicious, I wolfed it down so quick that I barely stopped to swallow - well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but not far off.
I really think I would have enjoyed this a bit more if it wasn't for the disappointment about the chocolate, but who am I to complain about chocolate really? It gives me headaches and I'm not meant to eat it anyway!
So what's the damage? Am I going to regret this later? Well, actually, I won't, this yoghurt has 23% of my RDA of calcium - that's a good enough excuse for me. Each 175g pot contains 203 calories and 6.3g of fat. Much less fat than their crunchy brothers, the muller crunch corner!
This is a very tasty treat indeed, and will most definitely be buying more before the limited edition stock sells out!
Thank you for reading!
This new flavour of the muller caught my eye when I was at work one day ( I work at Tesco on the checkouts!!! ). It was the limited edition Muller Corner Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate. The first thing I thought was yummy.... I really wanted to try one........ Even better they were on off at 5 for £1 - usually 54p each. I decided I was going to stock up when I finished my shift.
When I got home, I could not wait to try the yogurt. And it did not disappoint me. It was delicious..
It is like the usual Muller Corner Yogurts, two sections - the larger section containing the vanilla yogurt (with small chunks of dark chocolate ) and the smaller section containing the black cherry puree ( which also has bits of cherry pieces ).
This new limited addition flavour is a great addition to the Muller range and I really hope that they dont disappear off the shelves anytime soon. It reminds me of black forest gateau - as I have seen some other people mention that too.
I absolutely love the concept of Muller Corner Yoghurts - probably because I am a child at heart and to me, adding the corner to the yoghurt it feels like cooking! It doesn't take much to please me!!!
I am not a big fan of the yoghurt in these Muller Corners though. It is very smooth and silky in texture. To me it feels a little artificial. I prefer my yoghurt to be slightly thicker and less even in consistency.
However, I could not resist trying the Cherry and Dark Chocolate yoghurt... it has chocolate in the title after all.
This was a big disappointment though. It tasted even more artificial than the others I have tried. It was ridiculously sweet for a yoghurt. Also, it had a bizarre sticky consistency,
Nutritional Info per pot:
203 calories (might as well opt for a chocolate bar!)
As you can see, it is not healthy at all and I would expect better from a yoghurt, especially one that doesn't actually taste great!!
They cost about 30 pence. Pretty cheap but also pretty grim!
Muller Corner Yoghurts have long been a favourite of mine. They come in a white plastic pot which has a triangular pot of fruit attached.
At least that's what the fruit corners have. I have tried the apply, strawberry and black cherry varieties and they are clean tasting and refreshing.
Not so this chocolate concoction.
I found this chocolate and black cherry mixture too sweet and it seemed to be a bit sticky so that it clung to the sides of my mouth, a bit like the residue you feel after your have been eating porridge.
Muller keep bringing out new flavours in this range but they seem to disappear.
For example, I liked the rhubarb variety but it doesn't seem to be available locally at present.
This chocolate cherry variety is at present a limited edition so it may not be available for long.
The yoghurt itself is very sweet but also thick and creamy. The chocolate is strong tasting but I found it too heavy mixed with the yoghurt.
Adding the cherries didn't do anything to improve this sweetness.
Each pot of this product holds 203 calories and 6.3grams of fat and 27grams sugar.
So, it is not very healthy fat, or sugar wise. It does contain 23% of the daily recommended calcium amount, though.
The two pots I bought were 26p each and although I did eat them both, I wouldn't buy them again.
This yoghurt is too sweet and sickly for me.
I will stick to my usual Muller Fruit Corners.
I love any healthy yoghurt and the one that claims to be made from no artificial ingredients.
I have tried other flavours in the Muller Corner family but I must say I love the Muller Fruit Corner Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate.I love cherries in whole or puree and fresh or canned.I do not like Dark Chocolate on it's own but the combination of it with the yoghurt is a match made in heaven.
My concern now is if it is available as a limited edition and they decide to stop production.I would have been robbed of an amazing combination of flavours and taste.You can finish the yoghurt part without mixing with the fruit part because it tastes brilliant.
I recommend it to those who love a bit of both as this is product does just that. Right now it is found in Morissons at a discounted price.Other supermarkets should have the product as well.This is an indulgent yoghurt and you won't be disappointed at all.It leaves you with the feel good effect, anyone who loves chocolate will relate to what I am on about.
I read a review about Müller's new limited edition Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate Fruit Corner recently and firmly remember commenting that I didn't think I would like it, however never one to look a gift horse in the mouth I ended up trying one today after my daughter gave me a pot at her house.
I now eat my words, as well as my yogurt, because this is absolutely delicious!
As usual with Müller Fruit Corners the pot is sectioned in two, with the larger section containing the yogurt and the smaller corner holding a rich looking black cherry puree.
The yogurt is wonderful. It's the usual creamy vanilla yogurt which Müller use in most of their Fruit Corners but with the addition of lots of tiny flakes of dark chocolate. Bah, thought I, there will be no chocolate flavour in this as the flakes are just too small. But I was wrong. Although there isn't actually an obvious taste of dark chocolate, the yogurt itself seems to be subtly infused with the flavour of these little flakes and it feels like an extremely luxurious yogurt compared to the more standard Fruit Corners.
The yogurt is so thick and creamy that I can hold my spoon upside down for several seconds before it falls off, although I do not recommend you trying this over your brand new carpet!
The black cherry puree is delicious. It has plenty of cherry pieces which are a decent size and add some much needed texture to the yogurt. It is not tart in the slightest, unlike Müller's Red Cherry Fruit Corner which I also love, and has a deep natural sweetness which is very similar to Black Forest Gateau as the previous reviewer mentioned.
Combining the black cherry puree and chocolate flaked yogurt makes for a wonderfully flavoured dessert, I say dessert because there is very little that is yogurt-like about this yogurt! It tastes so naughty and considering this pot contains 208 calories and much more fat than other Fruit Corners (I cannot remember exactly how much as I've thrown the lid away now!) it's certainly not the healthiest yogurt on the market, but it's so sweet and tasty that who really cares about that!
I will certainly buy this again and hope Müller decide to make this a regular addition to the Fruit Corner range. Each pot costs 54p, but in Tesco at the moment my daughter tells me that these can be purchased as part of their five for £1 Müller promotion which is an extremely good saving on such a delicious yogurt.
Chocolate and Black Cherries are two of my favourite things. I don't care how retro it is, I love Black Forest Gateau! So when I saw this new Limited Edition Fruit Corner I knew it was right up my street. I grabbed one as a treat, along with a handful of the more conservative strawberry ones for the kids (5 for £1 in Tesco at the moment - bargain!). In general I'm not a huge fan of these, as I find them too sweet - yoghurt and fruit are both nice to eat, I think, and don't need to be sweetened out of all recognition. I made an exception for this one as it looked and sounded so delicious.
This Fruit Corner is described on the lid as "Thick creamy yoghurt sprinkled with Dark Chocolate, with a Black Cherry fruit corner". It looks like the picture above and follows the usual Muller Corner design, plain-ish yoghurt and a section of fruit. The yoghurt is indeed very creamy - it is also very sweet! It is speckled (sorry, I guess that is "sprinkled") with teeny weeny spots of chocolate. This is not recognisable as chocolate really, it doesn't make you say "ooooooooooh" like coming face to face with chocolate usually does (if you're that sort of person) - like the chocolate pictured on the yoghurt lid does, for example. I guess "sprinkled" should have warned me, but I just read CHOCOLATE and CHERRIES and didn't read the small print! I was disappointed when I opened the lid.
The cherries looked great though. I don't know if it is my imagination but they looked darker than the cherries in the non-chocolate Fruit Corner. They looked velvety and inviting and in fact they were really very delicious! Back to the yoghurt though - it was thick, it was creamy, it tasted very pleasant. It was over-sweetened though, and it was not in the slightest bit chocolate-y. The sprinkles were like the chocolate dust out of an empty Cadburys Flake packet, you know, when you've eaten it all and then unwrap the plastic completely to make sure you didn't miss any! (Or is that just me?) The yoghurt taste (did I mention it was sweet?) totally overwhelmed the specks of chocolate. This would need pieces of chocolate, or swirls of chocolate sauce - something quite substantial, with less sugar in the yoghurt and the fruit, so all the flavours could be tasted. Yeah, I think I'll make my own!
I did enjoy this. At 208 calories for the pot it was a nice little treat. I don't think I'll buy an more of them though. I think Muller have done a great job of selling the *idea* of this yoghurt. The dark colours of the packaging, the "Limited Edition", the glimpse of dark chocolate on the lid - it all suggests luxury, a naughty treat that is so sumptuous you can't resist. The inside doesn't live up to this at all, but by that time your imagination has done most of the work. I feel like I was reeled in! I must be the target audience and it worked on me! Only the once though.
The first Fruit Corner flavor that includes chocolate.
