“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurt „
I don't know what seems to have happened to this little gem of a crunch corner but over the past three to four months it has completely dropped off of the face of the Earth and I don't seem to be able to find it anywhere no matter what supermarket I go to. Which is a shame as it was one of the best crunch corners around.
It's not expensive at all and varies from store to store as every supermarket seems top have offers for these on all of the time but you can expect to pay about 49-59p for one. It's not the cheapest yoghurt going but then again, it's not the most expensive either.
Inside the packet it split in two. On the larger size is yogurt with a fudge cream swirl inside it, and on the other are tiny little fudge pieces. It's a great idea and seems to marry together nicely.
Overall it's good; it tastes fantastic and is unusual even within the Muller range. The creaminess of the fudge and the milk flavour of the yoghurt go together nicely inside your mouth to create a sweet taste. The only downside seems to be with the packaging as i generally find with all Muller yoghurts that they need to be treated with care when being transported. The foil isn't the strongest and the packaging snaps halfway down the middle too.
Otherwise it's a great taste and good value for money. As I mentioned at the start. I haven't seen them for a few months now and I usually keep an eye out for them I really hope this hasn't disappeared off of the high street because it would be a shame to see it go.
I love yogurt and when Muller's first came I thought they were brilliant and still do!
I love the idea of having two different compartments, one with creamy yogurt in and the other with tasty toppings, yum!
One of my all-time favourites is 'Chocolate Fudge Cake' which used to be known as Chocolate Alabama which contains a rich fudge sauce covered in a creamy fudge flavour yogurt and in the smaller corner little balls of digestive biscuit covered in tasty milk chocolate and mixed in with tiny cute fudge square pieces...
This combination is fantastic as it's so tasty and satisfying that the 150g fills even me up, lol!
This Muller product comes under the 'Crunch Corner'' varieties, although this maker does loads of different types of desserts now so there's something for pretty much everyone :)
The full prices of these are around 52p each, but there is an offer on at Morrisons at the moment for only 25p each - better than half price, so we have stocked up on loads of different types.
Advertise as having no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives and containing 16% of an adult's daily recommended calcium allowance, these can be a pretty healthy option apart from the 5.4g fat in each 100g.
The calories are 162 per 100g so not that healthy then when you study the foil lined pot cover!
With a whopping 21.1 g sugar per 100g this twin pot really isn't a good option for a dieter is it?!
For any allergists it contains milk, gluten, soya and may contain nut traces...
So to the taste it is very rich and strong with the fudge flavour really coming through in the yogurt. The consistency is smooth and thick and very creamy and very light brown/beige in colour.
The little digestive biscuit balls are crunchy and dry and sweet and the chocolate is tasty and quite thickly coated.
The fudge tiny pieces are my favourite and are packed with flavour and are really chewy and sweet again. Light brown in colour everything compliments each other with the tastes and the shade.
This crunch corner snack smells gorgeous and natural and is well worth five full stars, a great addition to the moreish Muller family! :)
Being a fan of Muller, when I spied an "8 Muller Corner Yogurts for £2" in ASDA, I stocked up the trolley. Choosing wasn't hard, and out of the eight I got 3 of the 'Chocolate Fudge Cake' varieties.
Just like the other Muller Corners, it comes with two sections, one holding the yogurt and one the pieces. This makes it good to either tip out the corner and mix it all up, as I did, or eat it in your preferred way. The photo on the front shows chocolate digestive balls and fudge chunks how they are inside (though a little smaller than in the photo), it also tells you the nutritional information and also that there are no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives.. that's if you've not already ripped open the yogurt and are taking mouthfuls.
**Mmmm...Whats that? Oh..I mean... The taste **
On opening, I immediately tipped the chocolate-coated digestive balls and the little fudge chunks into the main yogurt part. I stirred it all up and to my great delight, there was some swirly toffee sauce that got mixed up with the yogurt. Then for the important part...tasting it. It was absolutely delicious and after the first bite I'd decided this was my favourite Muller corner of them all! The yogurt tastes really good and swirled up with sweet toffee sauce, the chewy, sweet and creamy little chunks of fudge and then the crunchy chocolatey goodness of the digestive balls....the range of textures creates a party going on in your mouth! ☺ Although it doesn't taste like what I would consider chocolate fudge cake, the elements of it are there, and it was definitely a satisfying sweet snack.

The disadvantages with this yogurt is the calorie content, however, although 243 calories seems a lot for a yogurt, the fat content is relatively low, and under half that of a chocolate bar. If you were to replace a chocolate bar with the yogurt, you'd be making a healthier choice. Replace this yogurt with chocolate fudge cake, and well, you may as well have two yogurts!!
This yogurt is absolutely delicious, I thoroughly enjoyed the three I bought, and wish I'd just chosen eight of the same one to be honest!!
When I was younger, and my family and I used to go out for dinners at restaurants and pubs, one of my little brothers always used to opt for the Fudge cakes for dessert! I found this quite confusing as I had never been a fan of chocolate based puddings, and normally opted for an apple crumble and custard, banoffee pie or such like! However when I came across the "Classic Alabama Fudge Cake Muller Corner", the temptation was to strong, and into our trolley it went.
Alabama fudge cake is one of the newer corners, however even if it had been around when I was little I don't think it would have been I'd have liked to try. However, with the amazing offer on at Asda now of 10 Muller corners for £2, I thought, "why not?" and took advantage of the deal. Individually the corners sell for 54p, so this is really a massive saving, and after doing the (easy?) maths, I realised the offer meant each corner was selling for a tiny 20p! Fantastic or what?
The Alabama Fudge Cake corner sports an attractive lid. One that gives off a very "chocolatey" look! Corner lids, are the only way to determine which corner is which. In this case, the foil lid is a deep brown shade in colour, with a lighter brown towards to the top of the lid. Muller is written in the never-changing white writing on a red background. Under this the word crunch! is written in brown writing, almost camoflauged into the background, and underneith this CORNER is written in large red writing. Alabama Chocolate Fudge Cake, is then printed, and just reading it at the time got my tastebuds dancing! In the right hand corner, an illusion is shown, appearing that the lid is being peeled back, revealing a scrumptious looking helping of brown chocolate balls, and small peices of fudge! A mixture of two of my most favourite things! On the "peeling" of the lid, an image of the american flag is shown, giving a definite edge and a slight difference to this corner!
Peeling back the lid, I was met with a glorious site! A fairly pale brown yogurt, resembling the delicious and much loved Toffee Muller Light. At first glance it did look slightly watery, but this was not a problem once I had given a little mix. In the smaller section, the contents looked even better than it had done on the lid. Some small chocolate balls, mixed together with some gorgeous looking fudge peices. The aroma (?) of the yogurt was very sweet. Much like the scent of the Toffee Muller Light. A slight fudgy-ness could be detected too however no chocolate could be smelt at all!
Spooning some of the yogurt into my mouth, I discovered that all though it looked exactly like a muller light, and smelled exactly like a muller light, the crunch corner yogurt was alot creamier, and a little sweeter too. The yogurt did taste rather toffee-like however it tasted slightly of fudge too. After I had mixed the yogurt slightly it did thicken up quite alot, and didn't cause any problems whatsoever! On my second spoonful of yogurt I was really surprised to feel a different texture. The unusual texture, smooth yet sticky was the fudge sauce! I had totally forgotten about this, and the surprise was lovely! The stickyness wasn't too bad as the yogurt took the edge off it, and the extremely sweet taste was "cooled down" by the creamy yogurt!
After I had tried the yogurt, I moved onto the "compot" next too it. The chocolate balls were much similar to the digestive chocolate balls in the chocolate digestive corner. A slightly creaminess followed by the sweet biscuit. The fudge peices were gorgeous too! I can't lie and say they were the best I have ever had, because they aren't but they were very nice indeed. They were really sweet and had a soft texture to them really easy on the teeth.
Mixing the four textures together, a delicious concoction was made. The first thing that you taste is the yogurt, followed by the soft chewy fudge, and finally the crunch of the balls. The sauce was detected all the way throughout eating the mixture.
After I had finished I was left wanting more. Even though I was extremely full up and probably couldn't have finished half of another one, I still was left with the addictive taste in my mouth. Now like most delicious things this corner was extremely unhealthy. As with all other corners, I always have to refer to the Muller website for the nutrition information- firstly as the information is printed in extremely small black print, almost impossible to read and secondly because the nutrition is given per 100g, which is useless as the corner is 150g.
The Muller website is really helpful however, and I am told that each Fudge cake corner contains a whopping 249 calories and 8.6g of fat! I think the calories and fat in this corner is one of the highest you could have, but boy was it worth it!!
The yogurt would be perfect for a sweet treat after a meal, however I would only recomend once and again, due to the calories and fat. The corner would also be a good sweet pick-me-up mid afternoon, however again in moderation. Most kids like something sweet, am I right? Well this would be perfect to pop into there lunchbox. The fudge cake corner is also suitable for vegetarians but due to the milk content is not suitable for the lactose intolerant. Who knows, one day they may make Soya corners! (Eugh!!)
5 Sense Summary-
*Texture- smooth yogurt, sticky sauce, crunchy biscuit, soft fudge
*Appearance- pale brown yogurt, chocolate balls and golden brown fudge
*Scent- Slight fudge, toffee muller light
*Taste- creamy sweet slightly fudge toffee yogurt, fudge sauce, sweet fudge, sweet biscuit!
There seems to be a bit of confusion over the actual name of these yogurts, which can be a bit of a pain if you're trying to do an online shop! On the lid, it gives the full title of Alabama Chocolate Fudge Cake, but the label on the side calls it only 'Chocolate Fudge Cake' (probably because they couldn't fit the ridiculously long title on the small label!), and it's a bit confusing if you're looking for one thing on the shelf but it's actually another. Also, not all of the supermarkets actually sell it online. My local Asda and Tesco don't even though it is available in the store.
Anyway, all that's not important in the slightest once you actually get hold of one, take it home and get the lid off it...IT'S GORGEOUS!!!
Most people are familiar with the concept of 'corner' yogurts so I won't elaborate on that, suffice to say there are two sections inside. The large section contains the yogurt. This can sometimes have a little watery stuff on top, but when you mix it in, it'a absolutely fine. When you stir up the yogurt, you discover the toffee sauce. I don't know where or how they manage to hide this, but they do! In all honesty, this sauce is probably for effect rather than anything else as they could easily have pre-mixed it, but it works - it gives a really luxurious feel to the whole dessert. On its own, the yogurt and sauce combined are very nice - like toffee yogurt but sweeter.
The best bit for me, though, is what's in the other triangle...sweeties! There are little chocolate covered biscuit balls (I think these are the same as the ones in the Muller 'Chocolate Digestive' yogurt, though I wouldn't like to say for sure) which add some crunch, as well as the obvious chocolate, to the dessert. And then there are the little chunks of fudge - these are the highlight of the whole thing for me. They're chewy and sweet, and it is these that turn this dessert into something special.
So unless you are one of these highly restrained people who eat the sections separately, the overall result is a very sweet (but not sickeningly so in my opinion), creamy yogurt with crunch bits, a little chocolate, and some chewy toffee. Yum!
Like all good things, there's a negative aspect: this is NOT going to make you thin. I really wish they could make something that tasted this good in their Light range, but at a smidgen under 250 calories per pot, it's not the one to choose if you're on a diet. But if you just want an absolutely gorgeous yogurt then you've got to try one of these.
Normally sold at around 54p in Supermarkets, look out for these when they're doing the ever-returning Muller special offers. You generally get about a month on the Best Before, so you can stock up on them safe in the knowledge that you'll certainly get through a couple of dozen of them in that time.
I really like the Alabama Chocolate Fudge Cake in the Muller Crunch Corner range. I think there are plenty of fudge cake pieces, which is good because they are delicious so I would not want to feel deprived if they ran out before the yogurt!
The fudge cake pieces are chewy and work really well with the yogurt. They are not too sweet but are very chocolatey. There are two types - the fudge pieces and a chocolate biscuit ball. Both are lovely on their own but work so well with each other and with the yogurt.
I am not a fan of Muller yogurt itself but this also had some toffee sauce in the pot with the yogurt, which although sweet, is absolutely delicious. Also I make sure that I space out the pieces so that there are plenty left at the end for my final mouthful.
These yogurts cost about 50 pence each and are a bit more than plain yogurts but they are also larger and the fudge pieces are truly delicious and well worth paying a little extra for. At 139 calories per pot, they are not as low fat as many yogurts but they are worth the calories for a treat!
So when your parents go on holiday and leave you all alone to look after your kid brother there isn't much you can do to feed him other than whatever junk is in the cupboard which is a lot in our case, since my parents were more bothered about going to Burge than giving me any hint to how to sort my little brother out..!
So in aid to the diet of rubbish we were living off including pizza and my home made Spaghetti Bolognese, I thought I would try and be healthy and get us some yoghurts.. That was a vein attempt and a half!!
Asda had an offer for Muller yoghurts so we picked out of those and we both chose this yoghurt the 'Muller Crunch Corner Alabama Chocolate Fudge Cake' not that healthy I would say to be fair..! Well lets have a look at the nutritional bits..
3.3g of Protein..
15.5g of Carbohydrates which sugar..
3.2g of Fat which saturates..
0.2g of Fibre..
0.1g of Sodium..
16% of recommended daily allowance of Calcium!
The packaging of this yoghurt is the same as usual with the two separate pots of yoghurt and the chocolate digestive balls and fudge pieces.. However when you open it up and give the actual yoghurt and bit of a swirl in the pot and I uncovered a fudge tasting syrup in the bottom adding to the sweet taste this yoghurt already had..
The syrup makes the yoghurt a bit of a thicker consistency with a sweeter after taste to it but not one that gave a nasty after taste just a nice sweet taste on the back of your tongue..
After adding the digestive balls and the fudge pieces I couldn't actually wait to eat the whole thing I could have happily just eaten it and not even thought about this review! The fudge in the little bits is not as good as something like Thorntons but all mixed in with yoghurt its more than acceptable as are the little balls the chocolate mixes in with the toffee of the yoghurt so it tastes so sweet and just an immense tasting yoghurt..
I'll definitely be buying more at 54p each they aren't going to break the bank either!
