“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
Yoghurt with two compartments: vanilla yoghurt, and milk and white chocolate crunchy balls. One pot contains 150g. The pot contains 224kcal and 8.25g fat. Beware! The values on the lid are for 100g, so you need to do some calculation to work out the values for the whole pot. Very sneaky! A single pot costs between 60 and 75p. But multipacks are available and there are often offers for buying e.g. 4 pots at once. There are no artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners in the product.
The reason I buy these yoghurts is that there is something satisfying and childish about tipping the crunchy balls into the yoghurt and eating the mixture! The chocolate balls are made of puffed rice covered with milk or white chocolate. Because they are sealed in a separate compartment, they stay very crunchy and delicious. The yoghurt is quite creamy and filling. But really, it's all about the fun experience!
As mentioned above, the nutritional info is given for 100g but not for the whole pot. It would be good if it had one of those traffic light codes on it. At the moment, all Muller Corner yoghurts have the promotion "Free Gift with every Corner." On the website it advertises fun free gifts such as cow print tents and wellies, bottles of champagne and vouchers for free pots of yoghurt. However, you can also win "gifts" such as a free online Muller computer game or something to make cards to print out. These are worth absolutely nothing, so I think it's a bit of a con to call them free gifts. I imagine that is what you are most likely to win anyway. I would also mention that the yoghurt is quite sweet which might be considered a disadvantage to some.
I have been eating these yoghurts for as long as I can remember! They are so tasty and they are such a great snack to have in the house if you are feeling peckish in between meals!
They retail at the moment in most UK supermarkets at 52p, which is fairly expensive individually for a yoghurt, but most supermarkets do money saving deals at regular intervals - two deals that I have seen regularly are 4 for £2 (which is a saving of 8p) and 8 for £2 (which is a whopping saving of £2.16!) I generally try to wait for when these yoghurts are on offer as you can buy 16 or 24 on the latter deal and they can stay in date for up to 1-2 months and by the time you get to the end of your stockpile, they are on offer again anyway!!
The yoghurts themselves consist of a very basic idea - the tub has two compartments - one for the yoghurt (in this case vanilla flavoured) and one for the chocolate balls. The idea is that you tip the balls into the yoghurt and enjoy!! This particular flavour is very tasty and the two different ingredients work very well together.
I would probably have a few minor criticisms with these snacks. One would be that the yoghurt content is a little on the low side and that they could probably be a bit more generous in that department. However, there is enough of the chocolate balls in my opinion. My other criticism is that in the age of healthy eating and healthy snacks, the calorie content is quite high as they come in at over 200 calories per pot! You just have to watch how many of them that you eat! They do come in mini-crunch corner size pots which might be more suitable for people watching their diet! I think there could be a market for a low-fat version, without a doubt.
The other thing that might put people off would be the fact that you actually have chocolate balls in a yoghurt in the first place! For all you doubters out there, give it a go - they are so tasty!
The crunch corner is my particular favourite of the extensive muller corner range, given the choice I will always migrate towards chocolatey things rather than fruit flavoured snacks.
I believe the yoghurts are unique as I haven't come accross similar ones, muller seems to own the market of multi chambered yoghurt snacks.
The idea is a simple one, a pot full of delicious yoghurt with a slightly smaller pot filled with various chocolatey sweet treats. You can mix the contents together or enjoy them seperately, whatever you like.
When opening the lid you'll notice the thicker creamier part of the yoghurt has ever so slightly seperated from the main body, covering therim and underside of the lid, I always scrape this up and remix it with the yoghurt so as to restore it's original thickness.
This particular one contains a thick vanilla yoghurt with tiny little ricey puffs covered in either milk, dark or white chocolate. There is also a similar version with strawberry yoghurt and dark & cnocolate orange puffs, which in my opinion is even better.
The yoghurt has a mild and pleasant vanillery flavour which becomes even nicer when chilled in the fridge. Perhaps the yoghurt could have been a little stronger in flavour but this ceases to matter as much when the powerfully chocolatey balls are added.
While my favourite flavour is the bannana yoghurt with chocolate covered corn flakes, the vanilla choco balls one has a more interesting texture, with the cool creamy yoghurt and the scores of tiny chocolate spheres providing a wonderful contrast.
The ratio of yoghurt to chocolatey ricey bits is good with proper mixing ensuring that each spoonful has a good amount of topping dispersed throughout.
The crunch corner range is a huge one and I must say that there are tastier flavours available but how wrong can a luxuriously thick vanilla yoghurt with chocolate covered balls go. Definately reccomended especially when eaten straight from the fridge.
I recently saw these were on offer in my local supermarket so I decided to buy a few of these. My younger brother loves these Muller Corner Choco Ball yoghurts, so I decided to try them myself if they were as nice as he was describing them to me.
~Packaging and Appearance~
All Muller Corner yoghurts come in a sqaure-shaped pot with two triangular sections - one small and one big. In the big section is the yoghurt and in the little section is the compote, biscuits, chocolates, cereals etc. In this case it was the milk and white chocolate covered biscuit balls. On the lid of the yoghurt is a picture of the Muller Corner logo and on the Vanilla Choco Balls yoghurt is a big 'Crunch!'. There is also a picture of the lid being peeled back and exposing the chocolate balls, as well as a spoonful of the yoghurt topped with the chocolate balls.
When you peel off the lid you will probably see quite a runny yoghurt and a whole host of chocolate balls in the smaller section. I didn't worry when I saw that my yoghurt was runny; I just mixed it to make is more viscous. I took a spoonful of the yoghurt and put it in my mouth. It was very smooth and had a tasty vanilla flavour to it, but the flavour wasn't overpowering or too strong. The yoghurt was extra lovely with the balls added to it, as both the white and milk chocolate balls complement the vanilla perfectly. You also get quite a lot of yoghurt in a serving, unless you get the 'Snack Size' pots which are perfect for children who have smaller appetites.
Muller Corners are about 50p per large pot, which is not great value but there are occasional offers on at ceratin supermarkets.
Muller corner crunch yoghurts used to be my guilty pleasure. It's now no longer even that: it's just a complete pleasure.
My fridge is constantly stocked up to the brim with these. I can't really remember the last time I didn't have one in there. I suppose the majestic and defining feature of the yoghurts are the corner facility. The corner is filled with different treats, and you lift it up to pour the treats into the yoghurt.
The vanilla choco balls variety is my favourite corner crunch by far. I do just love the novelty of lifting up the corner and pouring it in, however, the vanilla yoghurt in this variety is actually very nice, and it is very well complemented by the choco balls.
Muller have really struck gold with their contraptions, and also their advertising campaign is fantastic. The fact that it has no effect on me (a buyer already) is irrelevant, but it should be mentioned that their song is great.
These yoghurts cost a decent amount, and you tend to pay around £2 for 6 on a good day.
So to sum up, the yoghurt itself is pretty nice, and then the added taste of the choco treats, all added with the fun of pouring the treats in, makes a pretty good yoghurt.
I am a lover of all things sweet and these yoghurts do just the trick when I need my sweet tooth satisfied.
*Price & Availability*
Available in most supermarkets, local shops, (costcutters, spar - that sort of place) from around 53p upto the most I have seen them for 75p.
I often buy these when they are on multibuy offers and recently bought 3 for £1.00 at Iceland.
A split pot dessert with creamy vanilla yoghurt in the larger section and small ball of puffed rice covered in white and milk chocolate in the smaller compartment.
Peeling off the foil lid allows you to snap the smaller section off or to bend it over into the yoghurt.
Each 150g pot contains approx. 225 calories, 7g of fat and 27g of sugar.
There are no artifical colours, preservatives or sweeteners and this product is suitable for vegetarians.
*What Do I Think?*
Well, I love these dessert yoghurts. The yoghuirt is smooth and creamy and full of vanilla flavour. The choco balls are crunchy with a nicely melting chocolate coating.
I do think that these are way too high in calories to be a regular daily dessert, but are generally better than a slab of chocolate cake.
I also think that these are way too expensive at regular full price, imagine a family of four or more each having one of these daily......
But, as they are delicious I will continue to buy them as a nice treat when they are on offers.
Muller Crunch Corner Vanilla Choco Balls Yoghurt
Description: Manufacturer: Muller / Type: Yoghurt.
If I am being honest, I am not really a big fan of puddings, sweets and deserts, so usually when I want a snack, I will reach for something savoury instead. Having said that, there are times when I get a craving for these yogurts because they are delicious and the combination of flavours is just right.
You can buy these yogurts in most shops and supermarkets and they come in a wide range of flavours including this one. Each 150g yogurt will cost you around £0.55 but they can also be purchased in multipacks which work out cheaper. There are often special offers available too so it is worth keeping an eye out for them.
There are two portions inside, a large one which contains a thick and creamy vanilla yogurt and a smaller one which holds little balls of puffed rice covered in white and milk chocolate. The idea is that you empty the crunchy chocolate balls into the yogurt, providing a contrast to the creamy smoothness.
The vanilla taste of the yogurt is perfect, it isn't too sweet or overpowering and extremely thick and creamy. The vanilla taste lingers on your tongue and the crunchiness of the puffed rice chocolate balls is delicious.
Nutritional information is as follows;
So there are more calories, sugar and fat in these pots than in many of the yogurts that you can buy, but they are extremely tasty and still a lot better than chocolate or cakes - why not give them a try and see what you think!
Now there are good points and bad points to these Muller things. First let's start with some bad points! I had a French teacher who had the same name, brings back ghastly memories. Not Muller's fault though. Secondly, the darned packaging. If you don't snap it and pour it all in, then you are left with the difficult task of trying to spoon out the choco balls and this usually results in them flying everywhere! Thirdly, there are so many flavours available, that remembering which ones you like can get confusing, so in the end I just don't buy any of them!
Enough of the moaning and onto some better points. The yoghurt is the highlight of the package. The creamy vanilla gets me everytime. I liken it when ice cream melts and goes all watery, only it tastes better than that and has a better viscosity. The is a deep creamy sweet resonance to the yoghurt which is incredibly satisfying. This is offset with just a tiny hint of tartness as it passes down the palette. I usually enjoy the yoghurt part alone, as adding the balls seems to detract from the warmth of the vanilla. If you do decide to add the choco balls, then prepare yourself for a taste less overwhelming than a coco pop. The balls are merely there as an aesthetic. I do not feel they offer a strong enough chocolate balance to the yoghurt. Muller would have succeeded if the balls has been solid cocoa lumps, rather than crunchy bits, which is a little like chewing on particles of dust.
The yoghurts remain firmly priced at the fifty pence mark though are frequently on offer as a buy three for a pound sort of deal in supermarkets. Nice for breakfast or a teatime snack.
I am not a fan of Muller corner to be honest, especially their fruits corner. I find the yogurt just too creamy to eat with such very sweet fruit paste. Of all the Muller Corner varieties, the only one that I like is this Muller Crunch Corner Vanilla Choco Balls Yogurt. The dessert is made up of creamy vanilla yoghurt with milk and white chocolate coated puffed rice balls.
You can buy them individually at 53p each (150g each) or they have a packet of 6 (together with other crunch corners)
I love the idea of having two different compartments, you can choose how much yogurt & choco balls in 1 spoon or you can just mix them all and enjoy it.
The yogurt is creamy & smooth & quite thick, it has a sweet, milky vanilla taste, a bit too sweet in my opinion. It would be better for me if the yogurt was less sweet. The vanilla choco balls are lovely and chocolatey while also being crunchy. They go really well with the yogurt and together make it a really delicious dessert and filling as well.
The portion size is quite large so it will be filling enough for a mid-day snack or just something to calm your craving down. And of course, something that is so tasty wouldn't be so healthy.

So, this doesn't look good for dieters.
This is suitable is vegetarians, not so good for people with diabetics though.
Overall, this is a yummy yogurt which is also satisfying.
Muller corners have always been my favourite yoghurts, especially ones with crunchy, chocolatey bits in them, so it would only make sense that a crunch corner with choco balls in it would taste so good. However, the vanilla yoghurt part of it occasionally tastes a bit strange, although still likeable, i must say for this reason i would rather have a different flavour yoghurt part.
Usually i would eat one as a snack or part of lunch, which does me fine. They are filling enough and provide me with a good mix of different food groups. It also gives me 24% of my calcium RDA which is a big help if you dont have time for cereal with milk in the morning. No artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives make it appealing to the health conscious snacker too, i bet there are plenty of yoghurt manufacturers which fail to give this.
Overall i could recommend this product as part of a balanced diet to most people.
My husband and I seem to be addicted to Muller yoghurts as they're all so delicious. One of both of our favourites is in the crunch corner range and is the vanilla choco balls. The dessert is made up of creamy vanilla yoghurt with milk and white chocolate coated puffed rice balls.
The yoghurt comes in a large plastic tub with an image of the dessert on the front so you can easily tell which crunch corner it is. The yoghurt is 150g and is the perfect size for a dessert or for a filling and healthy snack to tide you over until the next meal. However, I do find them a pain if I want to take them to work with me as part of my lunch as they're pretty big and are difficult to fit into my bag.
The film lid peels off easily and happily doesn't spray you with yoghurt like the round Muller yoghurt tubs do. Inside, the dessert is split into two separate sections - the larger section containing a creamy white yoghurt, the other containing the chocolate balls. The small section containing the chocolate balls can be tipped up, which splits to allow the balls to be poured into the yoghurt. By doing this though it means that it needs to be eaten straight away as, after about 15 minutes, the balls will start getting soggy and they don't taste at all nice when soggy.
The yoghurt is very creamy and quite thick and has a sweet milky vanilla taste. The chocolate balls are quite crunchy and the mixture of milk and white chocolate make a very tasty and different combination. Together, the mix of liquid yoghurt and solid choco balls are delicious and end up being really creamy and chocolatey.
Each single pot costs 53p which does end up costing quite a fair bit if you get through a lot of them like we do. However, they're usually in some sort of deal which is usually something like 4 for £2 (not much of a saving I know!) or they're actually on offer for 7 for £3 at the moment in Asda. These also come in assortment packs of 6 which contain 3 different flavours of crunch corners and costs £2.60.
Every 100g of this yoghurt contains 149 calories and each pot contains 24% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium which makes it a very healthy dessert or snack.
These are a fab edition to the Muller range and make a delicious and healthy snack.
I always try to convince myself that youghurt is a healthy snack and better for me than a chocolate bar however it is a bit harderto convince myself of that with this product as you get small chocolate balls to add to your yoghurt.
This is a typical Muller Corner product in that the container is divided up into two sections, one contains the youghurt while the other one contains something to add to the yoghurt, in this case it is the afore mentioned crunchy chocolate balls which are eithe brown or white in colour depending on the type of chocolate used.
The yoghurt is vanilla flavour which is lovely and creamy thick and tastes heavenly on its own, adding the chcolate balls menas that there is now something crunchy to bite into and also the chocolate changes the flavour of the yoghurt. Each of the balls are quite small and crunchy as they are puffed rice with a chocolate coating over them.
While they taste nice they do have 5.5g of fat in them and a high sugar content so hardly the healthiest of snacks however they are probably still better for you than a chocolate bar.
These are not my favourite Muller Corners, I prefer the fruit varieties and would only buy these very rarely as a bit of variety.
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 'Vanilla Choc Balls' which is a creamy vanilla yogurt which is quite yellowy in colour like custard and white and brown puffed balls covered in chocolate...
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 if you buy a six pack for £2.90 you get another six pack free - awesome!!
Advertise as having no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives and containing 24% of an adult's daily recommended calcium allowance, these can be a pretty healthy option apart from the 5.5g fat in each 100g.
The calories are 149 per 100g so not that healthy then when you study the foil lined pot cover!
With a whopping 18.2 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 vanilla flavour really coming through in the yogurt. The consistency is smooth and thick and very creamy too.
The little puff balls are crunchy and dry and sweet and the chocolate is tasty and quite thickly coated.
White and milk chocolate coat the puffed rice balls and it is really nice quality chocolate and very sweet :)
This crunch corner snack smells gorgeous and natural and is well worth five full stars, a great addition to the moreish Muller family! :)
This is my absolute favourite Muller yoghurt, and definitely the most satisfying.
The vanilla yoghurt by itself isn't anything that special - it's fairly nice and creamy with a fairly strong vanilla taste. What really makes this yoghurt, however, is the milk chocolate and white chocolate covered rice balls which you mix into the vanilla yoghurt. They are lovely and chocolatey while also being crunchy, and they mix really well with the yoghurt and make it a really satisfying dessert without being toooooo unhealthy.
In terms of healthyness, this is probably one of the naughtier Muller Corners. The pot is 150g and per 100g there is 5.5g of fat (of which 3.4g are saturated), and 149 calories. You do, however, get 24% of your recommended daily allowance of calcium and it says that there are no artificial colours or preservatives, or artificial sweeteners. You couldn't eat these all the time as the fat content is not non-existent, but there are much worse things you could be eating if you get a sweet or chocolate craving.
The one thing I always find with Muller Corners is that they never have quite enough of the delicious corner part (the chocolate balls in this case), but then I think that's just me being greedy, and also the more they had in that corner the more fattening they would be I guess
If I didn't care about the calorie content, admittedly I would probably enjoy a fudge brownie covered in chocolate sauce a lot more, or anything else equally as wicked and fat-filled. Desserts like those are just on a totally different level but to satisfy a little chocolate craving but with less negative effects on the hips, this is a good compromise. I also really like eating yoghurt after a meal as it's fairly refreshing but with a sweet taste to finish the meal off nicely, and it is also said that yoghurt helps you digest your food and stop you taking in all the calories - perhaps this is only valid for the very low fat versions, but either way it's still a nice dessert and a nice little treat at the end of a meal, as long as you don't get carried away and start having them twice a day!
Muller crunch corner vanilla chocolate balls is another one of the muller corner range yogurts. These yogurts all have different flavoured yogurt, and different toppings to mix into the yogurt and contain two separate triangle pots for you to mix together and then enjoy.
These ones contain a vanilla yogurt and then loads of little chocolate and white chocolate coated puff balls. The vanilla yogurt is fairly nice when the balls are added, however I think the flavouring is just too tangy for me. The yogurt could be a lot smoother and a lot creamier and I think this would improve it as sometimes the tangy taste puts me off a bit.
The chocolate coated balls and white chocolate coated balls really make the yogurt though, you get a lot of these in the little triangle and even when mixed in with all the yogurt you still get loads of balls with each spoon full. Without these the yogurt just wouldn't really be anything.
As a concept this is great, I so still like these yogurts but I do think the vanilla yogurt flavour does need to be changed, and then perhaps they would have a perfect yogurt.
