“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
During my weekly shop at Tesco I am genuinely looking for a healthier snack rather than buying chocolate biscuits all the time as although I am very much wanting to I am trying to cut down on the calories coming up to Christmas as I know I will probably be doing a lot more comfort eating due to the decline in temperature and going over to stay with my immediate family whom will undoubtedly spoil me rotten with snacks and nice beer and drinks.
Muller yogurt has been my favourite since childhood it always seemed quite exciting due to the variety of flavours though I am aware now a days this has probably been halved I remember there being many more flavours than are available today.
The container is square in shape with two triangular sections one large storing the creamy yogurt and the small corner triangle containing the compot. I know people have different ways of eating this though some like to tip the small section into the large and mix it all through and others like to dip into the yogurt followed by the compote or vice a versa. The lid is easy to peel off but yogurt always gets stuck to it so you may want to take a spoon to it before you dive in. The foil lid also shows the type of corner you have chosen as well as the Muller logo.
The yogurt itself has a nice creamy consistency very mildly sweet and sometimes separates but this can be easily fixed with a good stirring. There is now a Greek yogurt version of the peach flavoured corner now also but it is thicker, I think it almost has like a salty taste to it and is a little more goopey I find that sometimes puts me off, I think I prefer the original muller yogurt to it. The compote has small chunks of peach and apricot surrounded in a kind of jam, it is sweet and soft and works very complimentary with the yogurt though I am pretty sure when I was a kid there was more if it or at least there were more fruity chunks, I think this has declined a little over the years though it is still very pleasant to eat and is definitely a healthier alternative to a chocolate biscuit or mince pie at 107 calories and definitely does fill a whole as well as contributing to your daily calcium and protein intake.
The whole range of fruit corners or crunch corners or whatever corner you like seem to be on offer at Tesco at the moment be it 5 of the singles for £5 or two of the multipacks which works out as 8 for £4 or buy one get one free for the 6 packs. I also think in store at the moment they are doing more offers on the single ones too think it was something really crazy like £4 for 12 as they are really trying to shift them to make room for the fancy christmassy ones being advertised on TV.
Many of you are no doubt aware that Muller make many other different kinds of yoghurt. They make healthy ones and not so healthy ones. Let's just say this isn't one of the healthier ones.
Although I believe you can buy these separate, on the number of occasions I have bought them, they have been part of a multi pack. In the multi pack you will usually find 6 yoghurts.
They normally retail at about £2.97 which I think is way too expensive, but they are often on offer. I bought mine from Tesco for 6 at a cost of £1.50 - Bargain Time.
The multipacks comprise of 3 flavours:
Peach & Apricot Corner ***
I have enjoyed all, but this one stands out the best. Each yoghurt pot comprises of 2 parts. One contains thick creamy yoghurt and the other the Peach and Apricot preserve.
I usually enjoy eating my thick yoghurt first and then eating the Peach and Apricot by itself. Although you really are meant to combine the two.
The yoghurt, unlike some of Mullers range, is thick and creamy and certainly not healthy. It is nice and sweet though and has a lovely texture and taste.
The preseve (or that's what I call it) is like a thick jam. It is packed with Peach and Apricot and is delicious by itself. I would guess you get about 2 full table spoons per pot.
Each pot weighs in at 175g and you will find per 100g it has 107g - you do the maths! It isn't the healthiest snack around. It also has 13.6g of sugar and 3.9g of fat.
Would I recommend? Yes I would in moderation. My wife and kids love them too, but my wife is reluctant to eat them too often, and when she does, she feels guilty. But go on, you only live once. I'm going along with the average dooyoo stars on this product and unsurprisingly give it a whopping 5 *
I really love Muller Corners as they're a lovely refreshing treat after a meal without being too bad for you. Although this one isn't one of my favourites, it's still lovely.
The vanilla yoghurt which comes in the bigger section is lovely and creamy, although admittedly not as creamy as if you are getting stuck in to a full-fat creamy yoghurt. The corner section has pieces of peach and apricot in what looks a bit like a glaze - it reminds me a bit of a fruit salad and although it doesn't look too appealing, especially the consistency which looks a bit cheap and gooey, once you mix it with the rest of the yoghurt it tastes good. The peach and apricot taste is very refreshing so it's a nice light dessert to have after a meal, and I hear that eating yoghurts after food can also help you to digest it.
I got mine from a little shop near me for 50p but I'm sure you could get these at a large supermarket near you, probably for a better price if you buy them in a multipack. In terms of fat content, like usual with Muller Corners they aren't totally fat free like some yoghurts are, but they aren't bad enough to worry about. Per 100g (the pot is 175g) there is 3.9g fat (of which 2.4g is Saturated) and 108kcal.
As readers of my previous reviews might remember, I'm not a huge yoghurt fan - not of traditional yoghurts anyway. I tend to prefer the supermarket 'luxury brand' varieties, you know, the ones that are less like yoghurt and more like thick creamy/custardy puddings. Yum. But I digress....
This weekend we decided to do our weekly shop in Sainsbury's for a change and, for some reason, I really don't like their luxury yoghurts. You'd think they'd be more or less the same as anyone else's right? WRONG!! If anything, I'd say they're a bit TOO posh/fancy for my poor uncivilised taste buds. So I needed to find an alternative.
And there they were - a couple of shelves packed full of Muller Corners, in a multitude of flavours and textures. Now I have sampled these before, but not for a number of years, and as they were on special offer I thought 'why not' and chucked a couple (or four) into the trolley.
I'm not going to go into masses of detail here, as I'm sure most people are familiar with this brand, so I'll just say that this has the usual two-part white plastic pot comprising a large triangle holding the yoghurt and a separate, smaller, triangle (or 'corner', even!) which contains the fruity stuff.
As an aside, I was watching 'Mr Maker' on CBeebies recently with my 2 year old daughter, and he used one of these pots to make a puppet (as I recall the bottom of the container became a dog's face, with the smaller corner forming a movable jaw) - something to consider if you have small children and are into reusing things....
I think the aspect of ALL Muller corners that attracts me the most is how good they look! This particular flavour is no exception, although it is perhaps a little more 'ordinary' looking than some of the Crunch Corners, for example. The yogurt is lovely and creamy looking, and the peach/apricot puree is a lovely fresh peachy colour (fancy that!),
===Taste and general enjoyment===
Of the four flavours I bought, this was the one I was the least excited about initially, as it sounded it a little dull. As it turned out, I really enjoyed it. The yoghurt is just right - really creamy but not too thick, and although it is 'plain' yoghurt, I thought I could detect a hint of vanilla and found it very tasty. It doesn't have that slightly 'sour' yoghurty taste either.
The fruit puree is not too sweet, and mingles well with the yoghurt. This flavour combination works well, and tastes good without overpowering the yoghurt. Some people might find the fruit mixture a little too smooth, but I don't like lumpy yoghurts as a rule so I would have to disagree!
===A few points about nutrition and allergies===
One 175g pot contains 189 kcal which means, although it's not the least fattening yoghurt available, Muller Fruit Corner Peach & Apricot is not all that bad for the waistline considering how luxurious it feels to eat. It contains just under 4% fat (about the same as non-skimmed milk, I think?), and a fair amount of sugar (13.7g/100g). but come on, it IS a dessert!
Apparently a pot of this yoghurt contains a whopping 27% of our recommended daily calcium intake, which is great news for those of us who are paranoid about getting osteoporosis. That'll be me, then.
No artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners either, yippee!
===Price and Value for money===
I got these on offer at Sainsbury's at the bargain price of 4 for £2, which I think is pretty good value for what you get with these.
Because of the way they are laid out, I've always felt that Muller Corners are much bigger than other yoghurts - I haven't researched pot sizes in any depth but I have a feeling that this is mostly psychological and presumably intentional on the part of whoever designed the packaging....either way I still feel satisfied after eating one.
A new day, another new Muller Corner to review.....
6 of these yogurts were packed together in a plastic 'sleeve' which is predominantly various shades of green and brown. It has the usual Muller Corner logo on the front along with a pictures of some cherries, strawberries, some, a peach and an apricot. 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 Red Cherry
+ 2 x Peach and Apricot
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 peach and apricot "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 27% of your RDA of calcium.
The product describes itself as:- "Thick, creamy, yogurt with a Peach and Apricot fruit corner"
The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Peach (10%), Sugar, Apricot (3.5%), Stabilisers: Pectins, Carob Bean Gum, Guar Gum; Flavourings, Citric Acid.
Nutritional Information per 100g
Energy kJ: 454kJ
of which total sugars: 13.7g
(of which saturates): 2.4g
Allergy information: contains milk.
No artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners. A natural source of calcium
As with the other Muller Corner's the yogurt is still smooth and slightly off white. There are no bits in it whatsoever.
Anyone who's read a few of my Corner reviews will know that the eater now has a choice. Do they:-
+ Eat the yogurt & Fruit Corner separately?
+ Spoon the Fruit Corner into the yogurt & mix then together?
+ Take some yogurt onto you spoon then dip into the Fruit Corner & eat them together off the spoon?
For the purposes of a taste test though it's necessary to try each individual element.
As expected. 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.
The peach and apricot "sauce" is of a similar consistency to the Blackberry and Raspberry corner. It is almost like jam in consistency. I push my spoon in and take a taste.It's got a bitter sweet taste and you can taste the small bits of fruit that in it. Sometimes I think that the peach is the slight more dominant taste and sometimes I think that the apricot is so perhaps we'll call it a draw. Overall though it's very pleasant.
Time to mix them together now then! I spoon the peach and apricot "sauce" into the yogurt and mix for a while. The colour of the yogurt doesn't actually change that much beyond getting a slightly yellowish tinge to it. You can see little bits of the fruit lurking beneath the surface. Time for the taste test.
This is very odd. The taste of the peach and apricot sauce has been completely overwhelmed by the yogurt. I wonder whether I tasted too much of it when I was tasting the sauce on its own? Anyway, as I said the predominant taste when the spoon hits your mouth is the yogurt but then the peach and apricot sauce makes itself known as a fairly strong aftertaste.
At time of writing Morrisons had these on offer at 2 for £4, meaning that you get 12 yogurts in total.
This is another good dessert from Muller. Notice that I said good rather than great. It's perfectly nice and pleasant but doesn't have that extra bit of "oomph" that makes it something moreish that you want to have again. After I'd finished my pot I was quite satisfied and didn't feel the temptation to go and grab another one from the fridge like I have done with the rest of the Muller Corner flavours that I've tried so far.
As with a number of the other Muller Corners this dessert provides you with 27% of your RDA of calcium and contains no aspartame or gelatine. Like the others 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). It is, however, tastier than any of the Muller Light products I've sampled or either of the Muller Crunch Corner's but it ranks bottom of the Muller Corners I've tried so far.
Muller Lights in order of preference:-
01=) Wild Blueberry
03) Summer Berries
05) Peach and Pineapple
09) Raspberry and Cranberry
10) Smooth Banana and Custard
11) Smooth Toffee
When I was little and I enjoyed Muller corners on a daily basis, one of the only fruit ones that I liked was the strawberry. The thought of anything else such as peach, or cherry repulsed me and up until around three weeks ago, they still didn't appeal! My mum always tried to wein me away from the chocolate-laden yogurts, and onto the fruitier types, however I was reluctant and I always one the fight!
Around three weeks ago however, I noticed an offer in Asda which seemed to good to be true. Normally, Muller corners sell for 54p each, however the current offer means you can buy 10 corners for a measly £2. This works out at 20p per corner, which if i'm right in thinking, is amazing! The first time we took up Asda on the offer, I hurridly threw ten dessert and crunch corners into our trolley, before my mum could try and persuaed me otherwise. However the next time, I was feeling a little more flexible, and so into our trolley went various fruit corners. Among these was the attractive looking "Peach and Apricot".
Corners can only really be distinguished by one thing, that being there foil lid. This particular one, has a very sunny, summery feel to it. Perhaps making up for the bad weather!? The main colour is a sunny yellow-ish/orange colour which fades into a pale lemon colour as it reaches the top of the lid. Muller is written in white writing, on a red background, next to the word fruit written in green. The never-changing CORNER is then written in large red writing, above the printed flavour, this time being PEACH AND APRICOT. The top right hand corner is home to a scrumptious looking picture. This time being some juicy looking peaches, extremely appealing.
Peeling the lid open, I was hit with a pleasant vanilla smell. I was fairly confused by the smell, as the pot didn't state the yogurt was vanilla flavour. The yogurt, as with most muller fruit corners was a bright white colour. It did look fairly watery, but nothing a little stir couldn't sort out. The smaller section contained a pale yellow looking syrup. I couldn't actually see any real fruit peices on first glance but a peering in a little further I did notice some little peices. The appearence of the yogurt wasn't really anything special, however it was enough to get my sweettooth a-craving!
After giving the bright yogurt a firm mix, the yogurt thickened up and became alot more appealing. Sitting on the spoon it looked glorious and so I spooned it straight into my mouth. As with the other fruit corners, the yogurt tasted slightly of vanilla. The first taste with this particular yogurt was an extremely sweet one, however finishing the mouthful off, a bitter taste emerged. I wasn't too keen on the bitterness however it wasn't unpleasant and I finished it off happily enough!
Moving onto the fruit compot, I was a bit doubtful- it didn't look all too appealing. However, spooning some into my mouth I was met with a distinctive apricot taste. Resembling dried apricots, but with the sharp sweetness of peach to it too. The syrup was very sticky, but the juicy fruit peices added a splendid texture to the compot.
After sampling each section seperately I tipped the remaining peach and apricot mixture into the yogurt, giving a mix the yogurt turned a pale yellow. By now, a delicious peachy smell was filling the room. The taste of the yogurt mixed with the compot resemled the apricot muller light. The sweetness of the fruit and the creaminess of the yogurt worked together magically creating a splendid combination!
After polishing off the dessert I was left feeling quite full up, and sadly quite bloated too! The taste had been enjoyable but it definitly hadn't been my favourite corner! I cant complain enough about the poor nutrition information printed on the front of the lids. Not only is it tiny black writing, impossible to read, but it also given per 100g, and this is pretty useless when this corner was 175g.
Referring to the much appreciated Muller website, I am told that each Peach and Apricot fruit corner will set you back 191 calories and 6.8g of fat. To be honest I was pretty annoyed with this. I had expected it to be alot lower in fat, and nearer 150 in calories. If I am perfectly honest I much would have rathered a Peach or Apricot muller light, served with some peach segments which would have been alot healthier and would have only set me back about 130-140 calories!!
The peach and apricot corner is probably more suitable for the older generation, ranging from teenagers upwards. I dont think it would be to popular with young children as the images of fruit on the front aren't very appealing if u prefer chocolate or sugar based things! The peach and apricot corner could perhaps make a good addition to you'r toast in the morning, as the fruit and yogurt isn't too bad for first thing in the morning. It would also make a great afternoon snack when you feel like a sugar hit, or a perfect pudding, for a sweet treat. As with all Muller corners I wouldn't recommend for daily consumption, as although they do contain calcium, they do contain alot of not so good things too!!
5 Sense summary-
*Texture- smooth, fairly thick yogurt, sticky syrup, juicy fruit peices
*Appearance- bright white yogurt, pale yellow compot
*Scent- slightly vanilla, fruity after a while
*Taste- bitter sweet vanilla, sugary peach/apricot flavoured compot
Muller is a German company that produces a range of dairy products. They have had a factory in the UK, in Market Drayton in Shropshire since 1986. In that same decade they launched their very popular range of Muller Corner yogurts. These yogurts are called Corner because of the shape of the pot they come in. It's a split pot with the bigger section contained a plain creamy yogurt and the other half containing a flavour of some sort. This can then be added to the yogurt to make different flavour combinations and a more exciting yogurt than normal ones. Muller Corners actually come in three different varieties, Fruit, Healthy Balance and Crunch. It is the fruit variety I am going to concentrate on in this review.
There are actually 5 different flavours to choose from in the Muller Fruit Corner range which I like because they do give you a good choice. This review will concentrate on the peach and apricot flavour but the other flavours include:
Blackberry and Raspberry
A Muller fruit corner comes in a handy tub with a very creamy rich vanilla plain yogurt on one side and a fruit compote on the other. The pot allows you to fold over the fruit side into the vanilla yogurt for ease of mixing. I find though that it is sometimes nice to just have a mouthful of the plain yogurt as even by itself it's really very good. The lid has foil on the underside so it keeps the yogurt and fruit inside nice and fresh which is nice and because the lid is made of foil it is perfect for licking once you peel it away from the pot! The lid, which is a bright orangey/peach colour has a picture of lovely rip juicy peach and apricots on the corner where the fruit is so you know what flavour you are getting.
The fruit section is not too big but just enough to give some flavour to the yogurt. The best thing about it is that it actually contains big chunks of the fruit. I would say that the chunks in the peach and apricot are not as big as some of the other flavours but you can still see some nice fairly big pieces of fruit. The chunks of peach and apricot are actually in little mini cubes and have a really nice texture when you bite into them as they are real pieces of the fruit. The colour of the compote is a nice orangey/yellow colour, actually just like the colour of a peach or an apricot which is nice. They have a really nice sweet taste to them and the compote/sauce included with it is lovely . This to me says that the fruit section is real and fresh and it tastes really nice. The flavour is not too sugary or sour. It's nice to know that this is not just fruit flavouring. I also think this flavour combination works really well together and them both compliment each other and one does not overpower the other.
Like I said the vanilla yogurt is very rich and creamy but not too creamy that it gets too much to eat. When you fist open the yogurt I like the fact that some of the cream has thickened around the edge of the yogurt top so you get a really nice spoonful of cream with that first scoop.
Obviously yogurts contain calcium so this makes a fruit corner a very wise snack choice. Calcium is needed for strong bones and teeth and can help keep osteoporosis at bay.
Some doctors have stated that adults between 19 and 50 need about 1,000mg of calcium a day. One of these yogurts contains 224mg so you are already a quarter of the way there which is good.
Each pot of yogurt contains 175g. The nutritional values on the side are given for 100g. According to the pot 100g of yogurt and fruit contains 106 calories so by eating the whole yogurt you are consuming 185 calories. This is not too bad, equivalent to a chocolate bar say but you are getting the additional benefit of calcium, etc with this so I would say stick to the yogurt if you are looking for a nice snack.
The other thing I like about Muller is that they really promote their brand as a healthy lifestyle and give you tips on how to keep healthy whatever your age. Their website is full of healthy tips which I definitely believe makes them quite an ethical company these days. At the moment their advertising on the television features a glass of milk being passed from person to person around the country, finally making it to the Muller dairy still intact. This is to signify the fact that they still farm close to their factory to ensure that the product you are about to consume is fresh and ethical.
There are fairly cheap as well and usually always seem to be on special at Sainsburys. At the moment they are 8 for £2 which is great. You can either buy them individually or in a bumper pack which I think contains 6 yogurts so they are a very good deal.
All in all a great healthy snack or desert.
The fruit corner's from Mullers have to be my favorite yogurts of all time, as there just so yummy, my favorite flavour with out a doubt is the ~Peach and Apricot~. first of all if you've been living in a cave for the last 5 years let me tell you a little bit abouts fruit corners.
Fruit corners are a very popular brand of yogurt made by Muller dairy, they come in five different varieties- Strawberry, Cherry,Blackberry & Raspberry, Blueberry and Peach & Apricot. Over the years they have proved to be one of Britain's best loved yogurts as they taste delicious.
Comes in a little squared plastic container with a foil lid, which easily peels off, but is also air tight to keep the yogurts fresh. On the front of the container, there is the Muller logo is the top left hand corner, and in the other a picture of some fresh Peaches and Apricots, and the words 'Fruit corner' written across the front.
When pealing back the lid, im then greeted by a lovely sweet smell of peaches and Apricots, and the fresh pure smell of the yogurt. The container is divided in to two sections-one for the fruit and one for the yogurt, the yogurt section is bigger than the fruit.
~The taste test~
I like to have a big dollop of yogurt on my spoon, and a little of the fruit as i think this brings out the best in both of the flavors. The peach and Apricot compote is so sweet and fruity tasting and really brings out the the flavor of the yogurt to it's full potential. As with some yogurts i tend to find the taste of the fruit rather sickly.
Muller have been made famous for the unique tasting yogurt, which is made up from fresh cows milk, and a special formula which gives it that pureness about it.
The texture of the smooth yogurt and the soft slimy compote, is just right and makes this yogurt so yummy and fresh.
There is just enough of the both mixtures to make this yogurt a great healthy snack, at anytime of the day. Although the peach has to be my favorite i do like all the other flavors too.
For anybody who has not tried a Muller fruit corner, i would strongly advise you to, i try to have one as often as i can, because i know that there really healthy and contain quite a lot of calcium.
The best words to sum this yogurt up, would have to be it being like little pot's of heaven :)
I do like yoghurt, I love Muller Fruit Corners and my favourite is the peach and apricot flavour! Now I'm guessing that isn't quite enough information for a review so maybe I had better say a little more.
Firstly I will say that the Muller Fruit Corners, in fact all the Muller Corners, are always on special offer. There are three for £1 or even packs of ten for £2 in Asda and you can't get much better value than that can you? I think that if you buy just one at a time it would cost you somewhere in the region of 40p a time.
There are a good range of flavours too with strawberry, cherry, blueberry and passion fruit and peach to name but a few, but the one that I am talking about here is the peach and apricot one as this really is the best of the lot - well in my opinion it is anyway!
The white plastic (recycleable) carton containing the delicious treat is about 4 inches square and a couple of inches deep and is split diagonally to give two separate compartments one of which is larger than the other. The foil lid has a picture of peaches and apricots on one corner (now there's a surprise!) and the rest of the lid is bright and golden with the details of the flavour of the yoghurt. All in all it is a very appealing package, especially if you love both peaches and apricots as I do.
Anyway lets get down to the nitty gritty as they say - by the way who are 'they' who say all these things? LOL!
I peeled back the lid. Now this was easy as the lid is made from a thin foil type material so it peels off easily. Nothing annoys me more than having to pick at the lid of yoghurt, ready meal or the like to get into the thing!
As I peeled back the lid the smell and the look of the yoghurt hit me equally. It looked really nice with the two separate parts to the container splitting it about 75/25 with creamy yoghurt filling the larger corner and peach and apricot pieces in a sort of puree filling the smaller corner.
The smell was very inviting although not overpowering. It was the natural smell of the fruit mingled with a slight sweet smell for the yoghurt.
I took my spoon and got a little bit of the fruit and a slightly more generous portion of the yoghurt and went for the taste test. Yes! Another Muller success! It tastes gorgeous. The fruit tastes fresh and tangy and the yoghurt is creamy with a slight vanilla taste. The two different tastes and textures mingle perfectly.
The level of sweetness is just right to give myself a sweet treat without it being so sweet that it tastes synthetic or sickly.
I continued to eat my Fruit Corner by taking a bit at a time from each side of the pot, but you could equally empty the fruit into the yoghurt and mix it together, but I suppose if you were going to do that you might as well just buy a standard fruit yoghurt in the first place.
The contents of the two sections weigh a total of 175g, however on the pot the calorie value is shown as 110 per 100g, which is a bit misleading if you don't stop to think. The total calorie value of the whole thing is around the 190 calorie mark! This one is more of a treat than a regular indulgence.
The peach and apricot pieces in syrup actually make up 21% of the whole thing with 42% of that being peach and 15% apricot.
The full nutritional information is as follows:
Calories - 189
Protein - 6.7g
Carbohydrates - 24.0g
Of which sugars - 24.0g
Fat - 6.8g
The yoghurt contains 27% of the recommended daily allowance of Calcium per serving too.
So what have we learned?
It tastes delicious, it isn't expensive, it looks good, it smells good, it's high in Calcium but it is also a bit on the high side as regards calories, so maybe not one to have too often if your weight is a problem.
The Muller Fruit Corner (Peach & Apricot) is described as a "Thick, creamy yogurt with a Peach & Apricot fruit corner"
I remember when these yogurts first came out and it was such a novel idea allowing you to choose to eat the fruit first, the yogurt first or mix the two together according to taste. Creative and different these yogurts are still pretty much unchanged since their release.
A few years ago, they did seem to go down the over-packaging problems that many companies still suffer from. The problem with these yogurts was that the glue holding the lid on seemed to be stronger than the material the lid is made of. This lead to the lid coming off in many pieces and when you are wearing some good clothes, not spilling the yogurt became a talent. I am glad to inform you that Muller seem to have improved this problem, although it still occurs every now and again.
The full yogurt size is 175g but you can also buy smaller ones which easily fit into packed lunch boxes and are suitable for small children.
The price seems quite expensive to me - around 53p for a yogurt, although when compared to other brands this isn't too bad a price. They also seem to be constantly on offer in Asda and Tesco, the offers sometimes vary, so always check if you are better off buying 4 (the usual amount to get the offer). The dates actually last a while so 4 isn't a problem for most people.
The yogurt (Peach & Apricot) contains:
3.9g of fat
124mg of Calcium (27% of recommended daily allowance)
No artificial colours
No artificial preservatives
No artificial sweeteners
10% of peach
3.5% of apricot
So what does it taste like?
Very nice. The fruit taste is gorgeous and this Peach & Apricot is one of my favourites in the range. The yogurt is nice a creamy. There never seems to be any bad ones, they have a nice consistancy of manufacture.
I strongly recommend you try one of these. Unless you have a milk allergy, in which case you may be able to share one with a friend. You can have the fruit, they can have the yogurt!
After making the benefit of Asda' £2 for 10 Muller corner offer we now, at home, have a fridge full of corners, well not quite but there is an awful lot of them and one of them is this Fruit Corner.
Like all Corners this one comes in flattish pot that is split into two triangles and covered with a foil lid. The foil lid of this particular Corner is quite summery and would be perfect for a summers day, if we ever got any in the UK. It is a marvellous mix of oranges and yellow, which make the yoghurt seem even more enticing. Right across the centre the lid tells me the flavour of the yoghurt Peach and Apricot and also contains Muller's well-known logo for easy identification.
On opening the yoghurt you are immediately hit with the somewhat exotic smell of peaches and apricots, which really makes you want to delve in. The yoghurt itself is split into two sections, hence the two parts of the pot. The largest section holds the natural Muller yoghurt whilst the smaller section holds the fruit (apricots and peaches) as well as the fruit syrup. It is the fruit syrup that really makes the yoghurt so appetising as it's bright orange/yellow colour and it's enticing smell really does make you want to dig your spoon in and get eating.
Now normally I would simply tip the smaller section, the fruit, into the larger section, the yoghurt, but for the benefit of this review decided to try both parts separately first. First stop was the plain yoghurt, which may sound rather boring but actually tasted really nice. Yes the yoghurt is plain but it is clean and refreshing and has a really smooth and creamy texture. Now for the fruit, well the fruit has a chunkier texture but it still really smooth. It has a strong and slightly tarty taste but this isn't overpowering and is a nice change from the yoghurt.
So how about together? Well together both parts taste excellent and so this yoghurt certainly gets the thumbs up from me. The tartiness of the fruit is off-cut by the plainness and smoothness of the yoghurt and really helps to make the yoghurt interesting.
As most people know by now Muller yoghurts aren't the healthiest yoghurts on the market, but how bad are they?

Fat - 6.8g
OK so neither the calorie the level of carbohydrates nor the fat content is too good. However this yoghurt does contain 27% of an adult's daily calcium allowance and better still is suitable for vegetarians and contains no artificial colours. So if you only eat these as a snack or part of a meal once a day they shouldn't cause you any problems what so ever.
So would I recommend this flavour? Definitely yes. It's refreshing and really makes a change from the normal strawberry or cherry flavours that most yoghurts come in.
If you want to buy these yoghurts they usually cost around 54p a yoghurt but can as I have alluded to before be currently bought on offer in Asda 10 yoghurts for £2 - an absolute bargain.
