“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
Having just consumed one of these I thought it deserved a review as I really enjoyed it and i was left feeling really pleased with myself for having bought it!
Muller produce lots of different yoghurts and crunch corners are one of them. They basically consist of a yoghurt pot which is divided into two sections; one large one small. In the small side is the 'crunch' on the large side is the yoghurt. Depending on which flavour you go for you have different types of crunch and different flavours of yoghurt. Some of the varieties are based on puddings- a mississippi mud pie one, or a raspberry pavalova, however, the original ones aren't trying to be anything fancy and instead are just based about flavour and the textures.
The toffee hoop crunch corner is perhaps my favourite which was pretty hard to decide seeing as they're all so very tasty and more-ish! The yoghurt is toffee flavourd and the crunch are little round hoops covered in chocolate. These two flavours go together really well. The taste of the toffee yoghurt is really rich, you can tell it is not a low fat one, when I have had a muller light toffee yoghurt I have noticed right away it isn't anywhere near as tasty and creamy as this one. This is very rich and enjoyable on it's own if you don't eat the hoops- but who would do that?! The hoops are small and very crunchy which adds a great contrast to the smooth texture of the yoghurt. The chocolate on the hoops is really rich too. Sometimes when you have chocolate coated items the actual chocolate can taste waxy and cheap but not this. I was really suprised today actually just how flavoursome the chocolate alone was.
How you chose to eat this yoghurt is completely up to you! Perhaps you are a snapper- you turn the small side over so it snaps and you empty the hoops right into the yoghurt. Perhaps you are a mixture- you go back on forth from one compartment to another. Or maybe you eat them separately. Whatever the way you will enjoy both compartments seeing as they both ooze in flavour.
Ingredient wise there are many including: yoghurt, sugar water, cocoa butter, milk powder and many more. There are no artificial colours or flavourings, no artificial sweeteners and one yoghurt contains 22% of your daily calcium recommendations! however do not be fooled, this yoghurt is not a healthy snack, instead it is loaded with calories and fat. In each yoghurt there are 150grams. per 100 grams there are 153 calories and 3.5grams of saturated fat. So, in conclusion, it's not all that healthy at all so not one for you if you're on a diet!
The design for this yoghurt has changed recently, it's not the orange coloured lid anymore, instead it's blue and has a picture of the hoops and some toffee in the corner. At the bottom of the lid is all the information about calories, ingredients etc which is in very tiny writing so isn't very clear. What is made clear is 'how good' it is for you- stating the no artifical colours etc... but don't be fooled, you wont be super healthy if you just live off these!
I think that these are great yoghurts which all the family will enjoy! They should be a great treat and not something which is consumed too often. They are available from supermarkets and can be bought in multipacks which cuts down on price! I definitely recommend them, I could just eat another one now!
I first tried this yoghurt as part of a multi-pack of Muller Crunch corner yoghurts but the Toffee Hoops flavour has since become my favourite and I find myself buying these to accompany my lunch at every available opportunity. I buy them as a standalone product as they don't do the Toffee Hoops variety as a multi pack.
The yoghurt pot is bigger than your average yoghurt pot given that it has an extra pot for the 'crunch' part of the yoghurt. It is made of white, thin plastic with a larger trough for the yoghurt and separate trough for the toffee hoops. In between the troughs is a line whereby the plastic can be easily bent to allow you to mix the toffee hoops with the yoghurt. The top is a sticker made of foil which keeps the yogurt fresh and stops the yoghurt from leaking out. The top is easily pulled back at any of the corners. The foil sticker has a simple design giving the name of the product inside and a small image of some toffee hoops and the 'muller' logo.
The yoghurt is toffee flavour and is therefore an off white colour. The yoghurt is thick, creamy and rich and is really complemented by the toffee hoops which taste a bit like toffee flavoured cereal coated in chocolate. The toffee hoops are small and soft and you get a decent amount meaning that you can mix them in with your yoghurt well.
One of the main advantages of the crunch corner yoghurts is that, if you do not want the 'crunch' part of the yoghurt you can eat the yoghurt on its own or likewise if you don't want to mix the two you can eat them separately.
The ingredients are as follows: Yogurt , Sugar , Water , Cocoa Butter , Milk Powder , Flour (Rice, Wheat, Maize) , Cocoa Mass , Modified Maize Starch , Whey Powder , Lactose , Flavourings , Wheat Starch , Caramel , Stabilisers: Pectins, Acacia Gum , Emulsifier: Soya Lecithins , Salt , Barley Malt , Vegetable Fat , Milk Chocolate coated cereal hoops (11%) .
I pay around 60p-80p depending on where I buy the yoghurt from which is a really reasonable price as you get a healthy amount of yoghurt and toffee hoops so they leave you feeling full and satisfied after a meal.
Crunch corners also come in a number of other varietys: banana yoghurt and chocolate flakes, biscuit, vanilla yoghurt and choco balls, chocolate digestive and strawberry shortcake so even if you don't fancy the toffee hoops crunch corner there is lots of others to choose from.
I would really recommend this yoghurt for anyone looking for a light addition to their lunch as they are good quality, made by a reputable company and taste great! And all for under £1.00, how could you resist?
I can't resist a lot of Muller's yoghurts and their plain toffee yoghurt is one of my favourites. So I thought that this toffee yoghurt with chocolate pieces would be delicious but I was quite disappointed as I wasn't too keen on it.
This dessert comes in individual pots with two sections inside - the larger section filled with a deliciously smooth and creamy toffee yoghurt, and the smaller section filled with chocolate coated cereal hoops.
The toffee yoghurt is delicious and exactly the same as the individual pots of toffee yoghurt that Muller make, so I can't complain about that. The part I don't really like though is the chocolate hoops when I would have thought these would be the best part. For some reason they always seem to taste a little stale when I eat them. Maybe this is because they're made from cereal rather than biscuit which means that they aren't very crunchy but have a bit of a softer texture. Despite that though, the chocolate does go really well with the toffee yoghurt and overall they taste quite nice and rich together.
Each individual toffee hoops pot costs 52p but they're almost always in some sort of offer in most supermarkets, usually 4 for £2 (although this isn't really making you a huge saving!), but they are sometimes in better offers like 8 for £2, which is much better value.
Personally, even though the chocolate and toffee mixture does taste lovely together, I don't eat these ones as the hoops just aren't crunchy or biscuity enough for my liking. My husband really likes this Muller yoghurt though so I would still recommend it.
As they are currently on offer in Asda for 8 for £2, I have had a few of these muller corners recently, and the toffee hoops one here has to be one of my favourites.
This flavour is also popular with my boyfriend who doesn't eat fruit and so hates the fruit corners which they also do. I know its wierd to not like fruit but at least Muller have come up with an alternative! These might also be good for if people don't like the sharpness of the yogurt which generally comes with the fruit corners.
As with all of the 'corner' range, this has a large triangular section full of yogurt, and a smaller one full of the treaty bit. In this instance, a big pot of toffee yogurt, and a little pot of chocolate covered crunchy rings (hoops!). For me, the mixture of textures between the yogurt and the hoops is great and makes it even more yummy!
The toffee yogurt is lush, it is really creamy and the toffee flavour doesn't taste too chemically as I find it sometimes can. The flavour goes really well with the crunchy chocolate hoops too so that's brill! The hoops are nice, sometimes I just have them on their own if I run out of yogurt. They are a bit sweet but what do you expect really! They do taste good with the yogurt and this does seem to offset some of the sweetness.
The yogurts are suitable for vegetarians and there's about 200calories per pot, but also about 25g of sugar which is loads thinking about it!! eeek! It does also have "22% of your RDA of Calcium" though, and no atrificial preservatives or colours so perhaps it is these features which are its saving grace. Also these pots can be quite filling so I think they are good for a snack, or for a lunch box or something, or as a pudding after a meal perhaps.
Some people like to pour all of the hoops into the yogurt, stir it up and eat it like that, but I like to just put a few in at a time, or eat all of the yogurt and then all of the hoops! I don't know why - that's just a random little fact for you!
I first tried muller toffee hoops yoghurt last week when tesco were running a promotion on the crunch corner 6 pack. The 6 pack contains 3 varieties: Banana choco flakes, vanilla choco balls and toffee hoops. The latter is probably a product that I would overlook if it was available as an individual item on a store shelf. I bought the pack because these are the only yoghurts that everybody in the house will eat.
The yoghurt comes in a plastic tub that contains 2 sections, one with yoghurt in and the other containing the hoops.
I usually buy really creamy yoghurts like activia and shape, so I find the muller yoghurts a bit thinner and with a tarter taste than I'm used to. They are still quite nice though. I enjoyed the toffee flavour, which added some sweetness to the yoghurt but didn't taste too strong or sickly. Toffee yoghurt probably isn't to everyones taste though.
The hoops are cereal o's covered in chocolate. They are really tasty and I suppose they are a good way to get a chocolate fix if you are on a diet. They are crunchy, the chocolate tastes nice, and they compliment the yoghurt.
Each pot contains 22% of the reccommended daily amount of calcium.
Muller corners are yogurts made by muller which basically have two different pouches, the bigger triangle containing the actual yogurt that you eat and the other if a smaller one containing a topping to put on top of the yogurt or mix in and eat.
I love muller corners as they offer more flavour than the usual plain yourts that you can get. This one the toffee hoops one if one of my favourite from the muller corners range. It contains a toffee flavoured yogurt and a side portion of chocolate hoops.
The yogurt itself is really thick and creamy and tastes really nice, it's a toffee flavour which iv never had in a yogurt before these ones and it is actually really nice in a yogurt. I think it has the risk of being too sickly however its really creamy so it works well.
The chocolate hoops are kind of similar to a cereal inside then coated in chocolate, imagine cherries coated in chocolate and you've basically got it, these taste great, well of course they do, there chocolate and they go well with the toffee yogurt as well. These yogurts are really nice however they cant be the best ones for you out of the muller corner range so I don't tend to get these all the time but do mix them with the healthier options as well.
For breakfast today I'm having a Muller crunch corner Toffee Hoops yoghurt, as cereal often makes my stomach feel a bit like a washing machine after a journey to work. As a big fun of Muller fruit corner yoghurt I'm assuming I'm going to really enjoy these as the yoghurt is typically thick, creamy and full of flavour in the other ones, as well as being a very unique design. The Fruit corners typically have a plain yoghurt with a fruit flavoured jam which the eater manually mixes to form the yoghurt, in this case however the yoghurt is a toffee flavoured one with chocolate cover cereal hoops.
The first problem with the yoghurt is that with solid pieces the Muller Corner series can be come messy, the corner isn't particularly easy to empty the contents into the yoghurt. When mixed the hoops become completely covered in the yoghurt which as expected is thick and creamy and it looks oddly custard-like. When it comes to tasting it the toffee is quite a soft taste that allows the chocolate to be tasted over the top of it, although the toffee is the dominant taste overall. The cereal doesn't seem to have a any sort of a taste, in fact it seems almost indistinguishable from the chocolate-toffee taste in side the mix. The hoops are crispy which plays well with the yoghurt having a creamy and thick feel to it, so the two work well together.
As far as to their additives they contain no artificial colours, preservatives or sweetners though they do contain Soya, Milk, Wheat, Barley and possible egg and nut traces.
Overall I would rather have a fruit corner rather than one of these those these are a nice change from the normal strawberry one I'd find myself having. These have a bit more to them in regards to texture but aren't quite as tasty for my liking. The toffee based yoghurt is an unusual taste though it's a nice one with a smooth consistency and goes down better than I'd expect a toffee yoghurt to do so. Although by no means is it amongst the best yoghurts available on the market it's a filling one with a rather fair price tag (often found in multi-buys of 4 for £1 sort of thing like most corner yoghurt can be bought in).

OK so i am doing a "quick review" on these, as i am tired and i cant really think of much too say about them "other than" what i will have covered by the time this review is finished. These taste great in my opinion, they are also great at any time of the day breakfast, lunch or night time and they are great for a snack. I love the smell of the toffee yoghurt and love the variety in them as well. There are so many different flavours available in these that you really are "spoilt for choice." The packaging is great and they are compact too which is great if you want to fit one in your bag or something.
The milk chocolate covered hoops "taste lovely" and look nice too. There is plenty of both the yoghurt and the hoops supplied and the the two little compartments for the yoghurt and hoops fold over easily. So that they can be poured in and mixed together with minimal fuss and effort. They spill out quite easily, which i found out when i was eating a packet today and all the yoghurt poured out over me lol. These are very reasonably priced and with so many flavours. I am sure there is one to suit almost everyone. I am giving this five dooyoo stars because its packaged nicely, tastes great and is reasonably priced, i also found the toffee yoghurt tastes like my favourite spelga one, of the same flavour.
My mum gets these 8 for £2 in tesco
When I brought 8 Muller corners for £2.00 in Tesco I got one of these Crunch corners called Toffee Hoops because I'm not always mad for yogurt and these always seem a bit more sweetie than the normal fruit corners.
In this one the big triangle of the pot has got toffee yogurt in it and in the little triangle there are chocolate covered cereal hoops. You can either tip them all into the yogurt at once, do it a bit at a time or eat them seperate.
The yogurt is dead creamy and smooth, the toffee flavour is quite strong but it's like natural toffee instead of tasting madly fake like a lot of toffee yogurts do. It's got a light consistency even though the yogurt is nice and creamy and I love that because most sweet yogurts taste stodgy and are not very refreshing to eat. This one is proper fresh tasting though and has got a lovely sweet flavour that is delish on it's own or with the chocolate hoops mixed in.
The hoops themselves aren't the business because they are a bit bland but the chocolate on them is ok even though it's not creamy or rich like Cadburys chocolate. They have got a lovely crunchy texture that doesn't go soft at all in the yogurt and that's wicked because it takes a bit of the smoothness away from the yogurt and adds interest. I think the tastes of the toffee yogurt and chocolate hoops go sooooo well together that I was disappointed when I run out of hoops because they were so nice I'd eaten them too quick!
I think this is deffo one of the nicest crunch corners and I'll definately buy it again because it was filling but not sickly like a lot of these toffee yogurts are.
Tescos currently have a great offer of the Muller crunch/fruit corners - 8 yoghurts for £2. I am a big fan of the crunch corners as they are a good blend between yoghurt and chocolatey goodness.
Muller Crunch Corner Toffee Hoops
What is it?: The yoghurt is described as a creamy toffee flavour yoghurt with milk chocolate coated cereal hoops. The design of the yoghurt pot is a standard Muller corner yoghurt - a large deep triangle of light brown yoghurt with a small foldable triangle containing small circular chocolate hoops which look very appetising. The weight of the yoghurt is 150g.
Smell and Taste: The smell of the chocolate and the toffee yoghurt is fairly light but is quite enticing. The yoghurt has a slight essence of toffee, but otherwise tastes like an original flavour yoghurt. The chocolate hoops mix well into the yoghurt which creates a great combination of crunchiness and smoothness as you work your way through the yoghurt. The overall taste is quite moreish, and I did not feel too full or find the taste sickly - this is always an advantage with chocolate based products.
Healthy?: The yoghurt contains 22% of the calcium recommended daily allowance and contains no artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners. However the sugar content is quite high (18.9 g per 100 g), 18.9%, and the saturated fat content seems also quite high (3.5g per 100g) or 3.5%. So this product may be better as an occasional treat.
Value for money: 8 yoghurts for £2 is great value - 25p per yoghurt is cheaper than buying individual chocolate bars and is a good alternative for a sweet treat.
Overall: Keep an eye out for these Muller special offers - this Toffee Hoops crunch corner is very tasty and good value too. However, given the high sugar and saturated fat content, this product is better as an occasional sweet treat.
I was quite looking forward to trying one of these more novelty style yoghurts, but I think I was a bit put off at first by the calorie/fat content as I associate yoghurts with being a healthier snack, which these are not.
Muller are a very popular manufacturer when it comes to yoghurts, and so are easy to come across in supermarkets. As they've gained popularity, the range of flavours and designs has grown, incorporating the concept of a corner portion of something which can be dipped into the yoghurt.
I tend to only eat Muller light (toffee or vanilla, both of which are very yummy!), but the sound of toffee hoops caught my eye so I gave them a go. I think it was slightly misleading, as this is actually a pot of toffee-flavoured yoghurt and a corner of chocolate-coated cereal hoops, rather than actually toffee hoops. None the less, the combinations of chocolate and toffee sounded good.
Bearing in mind each pot is 150g, the lid states that there are 153 calories and 5.5g fat per 100g, meaning there are approx 230 calories in one of these. Although they're not at the lower end of the fat/cal range of yoghurts, they do contain around 22% of the calcium RDA, so they do have their benefits.
Muller Crunch Corners are sold individually and in variety multipacks, with the individual pots cost around 52p. A bit pricey for a single yoghurt, especially if you venture to convenience stores (or Somerfield) where they can be around 60-75p. There are, however, offers on these quite frequently, such as 8 for £2 or half price (currently at Morrisons Sept/Oct 09).
Each pot is 150g, so you get a fair amount of yoghurt in each, enough I would say to make for a relatively filling snack. You can tell by the shape of the pot that it's shaped to allow one side to be full of yoghurt, whilst the other holds the hoops. Once you remove the foil lid, you can smell the toffee yoghurt, which does smell very tempting.
The hoops are in the smaller section, and there are enough in there for you not to feel cheated out of these little gems.
The hoops are actually cereal hoops, which are light and crunchy, covered in a layer of milk chocolate. The toffee yoghurt is plentiful and is of a good consistency; not too thin and not too thick, but still creamy and smooth. There are no bits in the yoghurt either, unlike most fruity ones, so the smooth texture goes well with the hoops.
The hoops do taste quite nice, nothing special admittedly, but they're crunchy and the chocolate has a pleasant taste. Unfortunately, I couldn't say the same for the toffee-flavoured yoghurt.
I love Muller Light toffee yoghurt, but this one tasted completely different to me. It was far too sweet, and not in a nice way as it had quite a tang to it, and I didn't think it tasted anywhere near as nice as it smelt or sounded on the packaging. Although the texture was good, and it's a nice idea to combine it with chocolate covered cereal hoops, the yoghurt itself wasn't what I had expected in terms of its taste.
Overall, judging by my experience, I wouldn't recommend this. I would definitely recommend their Light version of toffee yoghurt, and possibly put in a few of your own bits if you want a better-tasting but similar alternative (ie. Coco pop type things or chocolate chips).
Perhaps it was a one-off, but this yoghurt didn't do anything for me so I wont be buying one again in a hurry.
I'm a big fan of yoghurts and and I do really like Muller Fruit Corners and Muller Crunch Corners, of which I'm especially a fan of the Muller Crunch Corner Vanilla with Chocolate Balls. So I thought I'd give this one a whirl.
I was really enticed by the picture on the front (which actually is different to the one shown above, perhaps they've changed it). It showed inviting chocolate hoops and next to it fudge pieces, which of course I know weren't going to appear in the yoghurt itself they were just there to show the flavour of the yoghurt, but somehow it did just make the yoghurt seem very appealing - there's clever marketing for you I guess!
When I opened it I was reminded that the problem I find in general with these Muller Corner yoghurts, or any that have a similar idea, is that the section with chocolate hoops (or chocolate balls or fruit etc depending on which one you choose) is just never big enough. It's always the tastiest bit but it's always disappointing when you tip it into your yoghurt but then half-way through finish all the nice chocolatey bits, just to be left with the other half of the yoghurt. This was especially the case with this yoghurt as there didn't seem to be too many hoops and I finished them within a few mouthfuls.
The hoops were quite nice - crunchy cereal with a milk chocolate covering with a hint of a toffee flavour to them. I just felt that because there weren't enough I couldn't get stuck in and really enjoy them - I probably could have done with a bag of them by themselves but that's not the idea really is it!! The yoghurt was toffee flavoured and quite nice, but nothing special.
The calorie content, although not too low, isn't dramatically high - in other words you're better off eating one of these to get a bit of a sugar / chocolate kick rather than a chocoloate bar, but if you want to be ultra healthy you need to go for a lower fat yoghurt. The pots are 150g, and per 100g the yoghurt is 5.5g fat (of which 3.5g is saturated), and 153 calories. There are 21.1g Carbohydrate of which 18.9g are sugars. You get 22% of your recommended daily allowance of Calcium, and it does say that there are no artificial colours or preservatives and no artificial sweeteners.
Overall I would say that it's a fairly nice dessert after your lunch and it's not going to pile on the calories too much, but it's not a special treat or anything to especially look forward to.
The crunch corner with toffee hoops in is one of the main crunch corners we buy on a weekly basis, it comes in a pack of six yoghurts, There are two of each type and this is one of them, In my household this is the middle favorite one. Not quite the favorite, but not the last to be eaten either!
Crunch corners come in square shaped plastic containers with an easy fold line down the middle. The fold splits them in two with the biggest side being full of toffee yoghurt and the smaller side being full of round crispy hoops coated in milk chocolate. You can fold the smaller side into the yoghurt and mix them up and eat it from there. There is just the right ratio of yoghurt to yummy chocolate pieces.
The yoghurt is just the right consistency. It is not too thick or too thin and is cream but not lumpy. The chocolate bits aren't that nice by themselves as the crispy inside tastes a bit soft and stale to me, but together they are particularly complimentary. The yoghurt and chocolate are lovely together, the only reason that I haven't given them 5 stars is because they are a bit sickly compared to the banana flavour yoghurt but they are still lovely so they are a four out of five!
Having recently discovered the wonder that is the Muller 'Crunch Corner' (banana and choc flakes variety), I had popped to my local Co-op supermarket to stock up on these yogurts amongst a few other bits and pieces that I needed.
I was extremely disappointed to note that the banana and choc flakes variety of Muller crunch had sold out completely. As I wandered around scanning the contents of the fridges in the supermarket, my eye happened upon two alternative desserts, both of which were different varieties of Muller crunch corner. Noting that both were reduced to 40 pence each, I plonked them into my trolley. The usual price for these desserts is around 60 pence each.
The dessert I have eaten today is the "toffee hoops" variety. The yogurt is provided in the same 'double sectioned' pot as other varieties from Muller, such as the 'fruit corner' and of course other versions of 'crunch corner' dessert.
The smaller of the two corner sections in the plastic pot contained some little crunchy hoops (made of a crispy cereal or something similar) that were coated in milk chocolate. In the larger corner section there was a generous serving of delicious looking toffee-flavoured yogurt. My overall first impression was that this looked to be a tasty and rather delicious dessert...
Immediately after peeling off the foil backed lid on the pot I was aware of the sweet toffee smell of the yogurt which was extremely appetising! The smell of chocolate was evident too, presumably coming from the little chocolate hoops.
Sampling the toffee yogurt by itself initially I noted that the taste was very pleasant, although I did find that it was very sweet - bordering on sickly actually. The texture of the yogurt was very thick and smooth, and I was quite impressed with the yogurt for the most part.
The little chocolate hoops were a bit of a disappointment if I'm being honest... there was no great taste from them, and in actual fact I have come to the conclusion that they are there to basically provide a bit of 'bite' or texture to the dessert. To be fair, they weren't off-putting but I didn't feel that the little hoops were particularly tasty when eaten by themselves.
I will point out that crunch corner in the picture shown at the top of the dooyoo page has different packaging from the one I purchased recently - I think the brand has recently had a bit of a 'face lift' in terms of the packaging for these desserts.
The lid on the pot of Muller crunch corner informs me that 100g of this dessert will provide me with 5.5g of fat and 153 calories.
I probably wouldn't rush out to buy this dessert again, nor would I recommend it extremely highly. That said, I did think it was the kind of dessert that I would enjoy every once in a while, or when I get bored of my usual banana and chocolate crunch corner.
This crunch corner yogurt gets three stars from me! :-D
I recently wrote a review on Muller's Choco Balls Crunch Corner and the lovely DuskMaiden pointed out that Crunch Corners are currently on offer in Tesco so I went and stocked up on all the varieties and thought I may as well try and review as many as I can.
So today's mid-morning snack to break the monotony of work is the Toffee Hoops variety. Now I don't know about you, but even though I'm not mad on toffee per se, I do love a good toffee yoghurt so I've been looking forward to this all morning.
As with all of Muller's 'Corner' range, the yoghurt pot is a square shape with a fold-over corner to pour the hoops into the yoghurt. The flat shape of the pot makes it ideal for lunchboxes. The image on the lid is a pool of white (yoghurt?) on a blue background and a photo of the chocolate-covered hoops and some delicious looking chunks of toffee.
As I peel back the lid, the strong and slightly tangy smell of the toffee hits me straight away, making my mouth water. "Do you lick the lid of life?" I would under normal circumstances but I usually eat my yoghurts at work so I try and uphold a little bit of decorum by scraping the lid with my spoon instead. The hoops, being rather larger and heavier than the Choco Ball varieties, are easy enough to tip into the yoghurt without spilling all over or being affected by static as I sometimes find the balls are (does anyone else get that?).
The yoghurt itself is a pale toffee colour and a bit thicker and creamier than some others in the range and the hoops are slightly smaller than a cereal hoop would be, but they are made from cereal and coated generously with milk chocolate. They seem to have more air in them than a cereal hoop too, making them more brittle and easier to chew.
I find all toffee yoghurts can be quite tangy and almost metallic in taste and this one is no exception, but the addition of the sweet chocolate neutralises this and makes for a great taste as you chew on the hoops. Be sure to mix them in well though as you may end up eating them all in the first few spoonfuls and be left with half a tub of plain yoghurt. I did find this yoghurt quite filling and satisfying, and I feel this is down to the thickness of the yoghurt and the substantial nature of the hoops.
Each 150g pot provides 22% of your RDA of calcium (presumably for an adult?) and contains no artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners. As with other Muller yoghurts, nutritional values are given per 100g which is a bit misleading - remember to add an extra 50% if you're eating the whole pot. 100g provides 153 calories (so around 220 per pot, aren't I kind doing the maths for you?) and contains 5.5g fat. This is a good bit less than the average chocolate bar though so I'd say this yoghurt would make a healthy snack or pudding. It is suitable for vegetarians.
Other varieties of Crunch Corner include Banana Choco Flakes, Vanilla Choco Balls, Chocolate Fudge Cake and Strawberry Crumble. Other varieties in the Corner range are the Fruit Corners and Healthy Balance, which are a bit like the Crunch Corners only more like museli.
These are normally priced at around 55p, but can often be found on offer for 4 for £2, 5 for £2 or even 10 for £2; I got my current batch in Tesco £2 for 5.
