Advantages: Very Yummy, Provides 23% RDA of calcium
Disadvantages: Sugar content
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%)

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.
