“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
I recently decided to purchase some yogurts to take with me to work for either breakfast or as a part of my lunch. Yogurts are something that I like but tend to go through stages of eating or not. I have always enjoyed the Muller fruit corner yogurts so when I spotted a multi-pack on special offer in Tesco's recently I decided to purchase them especially as they contained the strawberry flavour which is one of my favourites.
I purchased a multi-pack of four of the yogurts which contained two strawberry and two peach & apricot flavour. I paid just £1.14 for the multi-pack which was on a half price promotion and thought this was very good value as these yogurts retail for around £0.68 individually.
The yogurt comes packaged in a two section plastic pot which has a peel able foil lid one section of the pot is larger than the other with the large section containing sweetened natural yogurt and the smaller the strawberry fruit compote. On the lid you can find the product information including storage instructions, ingredients listings and nutritional information. Each pot contains 150g and you need to keep them stored in the fridge.
Although I tend to think of yogurt's as quite a healthy option when you look at the nutritional information of these strawberry fruit corners you find that they are actually pretty high in sugar and therefore calories. Each 100g serving contains the following nutritional information:
Calories - 114 kcal
Protein - 4.0g
Carbohydrate - 15.2g
Fat - 3.8g
Fibre - 0.5g
The great thing about these yogurts is that you can decide how to eat them yourself depending on your own taste. You can either tip the strawberry compote into the yogurt by folding the pot over or you can place a little bit of each section on your spoon or eat one section completely separately to the other. The strawberry compote is bright red in colour , quite strong in flavour and although it is quite sweet there is still a slight sharpness too. The compote is not of the smooth variety and does have small pieces of strawberry in it so this probably wouldn't be the yogurt of choice for someone who does not like bits which I know a lot of people who do not although it is something I quite like as it adds more texture. I tend to add a little of the compote onto the end of my spoon and then scoop up some of the yogurt but this is just my own personal preference. The natural yogurt is slightly sweetened which makes it taste lovely. It is creamy and smooth and works in perfect balance with the strawberry compote.
Overall I really enjoy these strawberry fruit corners there is an excellent balance between creamy sweetness and tangy fruit. The only downsides for me is the slightly high price when not on offer and the high sugar content meaning these are more of a treat than a daily eat for me.
I never saw the fascination for these, and didn't eat 1 of these for years until we started heading down the yoghurt aisle at the Supermarket, and the wife picked up a few different flavours of these and other Muller items.
This comes in a 150g tub and costs about 50p. There is often some kind of offer on these which makes them that bit cheaper. You get these i the chiller part of a shop, as they are obvously refridgerated goods.
The tub is quite simple. This is a plastic tub with a larger part and a smaller part. I would say it is 75% to 25%. The whole lot is covered with a thin lid that you peel back. The lid is red and looks ok with the little picture of Strawberries on it.
The Yogurt is just a plain natural Yogurt. I guess you can eat this part on it's own, but what would you do with the Strawberry part? The strawberry part isn't even filled right to the top. It is about 2/3rd's full. Looking at it you think this wouldn't flavour the Yoghurt part, but it does alright. The Strawberry part tastes quite jammy, but is runny enough but a bit sticky. It tastes natural enough and although quite sweet, it isn't too sweet and sickly. You can fold the Strawberry part over and mix into the Yoghurt or just spoon some over and do with it what you want.
Per pack this has around 180 calories and 15g of fat.
This was a nice enough snack, but not filling. I find that I quite like these and will have the odd one, and have went on to try a few more flavours. Tasty and fun.
I love these fruit corners because they make me feel healthy and I think they are a perfect size to fill a gap after a meal or as breakfast or a snack.
The strawberry one is one of my favourites as it is a classic and the strawberry jam/sauce stuff is really fruity and in a generous portion size.
The two segments in the pot, as most people probably know about the muller corners. One has "thich creamy yoghurt" and the other has the strawberry-y goodness. The whole pot weighs 175g and it contains 112 calories per 100g.
The label is quite small but it gets a nice picture in, and quite a lot of info about the product. All the nutritional information is on there (14.7g of sugar and 3.9g of fat). The yoghurt is suitable for vegetarians (like me!) and it has no artificial colourants or preservatives.
I think it does give the impression of a snack healthier than it really is, but in my opinion it still satisfies the sweet tooth while providing 27% of the RDA of calcium, and being better for you than a chocolate bar.
These are normally relatively expensive, selling for about 54p each in ASDA and the like, but they were recently on offer when bought in multipacks, so I treated myself.
Also they don't count as one of your five-a-day! Gutted!
Muller fruit corners are part of the Muller corners range which offers many different flavours of yogurts and the toppings that go with them as well. The fruit ones are usually the ones that I don't tend to go for as I find a lot of the flavours a bit artificial and well, really I just prefer the more unhealthy flavours of the Muller yogurts that you can get in these corners as well.
The strawberry corners one though is one that I quite like. You get two different triangles, the big one contains the actual yogurt, this is a very thick and rich creamy vanilla tasting yogurt. The taste of it is very nice on its own so it just gets even nicer when you add the other triangular pot to the mix.
The small pot then I the strawberry part of the yogurt. It mainly consists of a kind of bashed up strawberry mixture. So it's a bit like jam however there are still some lumps of strawberry in there and the whole mixture doesn't seem artificial which is good.
You can either just pop this on top and eat it or mix it in to make a really strawberry creamy yogurt and then the whole of the yogurt turns a strawberry colour, which is what I do.
These are a great flavour of the Muller fruit corner yogurts, they can be bought separately or in multipacks and usually work out anywhere from 30-50p per pot, but it depends on where you get them and they are very often on offers too.
I don't eat a lot of yogurt but this Muller strawberry fruit corner was calling me in the fridge at lunch time today so I ended up eating it!
The yogurt is the same as all the other Muller corners, the pot is seperated into 2 sections and one has got plain yogurt in it with the other one having a strawberry puree in it. The white yogurt is nice and sweet, it's very creamy with a yummy plain flavour that I think goes wicked with all the different fruit flavours but especially this strawberry one I reckon.
The puree is strongly strawberry flavoured but it's like jam more than proper fresh strawberries, it's a smooth puree that is wickedly sweet and makes the plain yogurt sooooo yummy. I add mine a bit at a time so that I can choose whether I want more yogurt or more puree, these yogurts are mad because they makeyou so particular even if your like me and just shovel the grub down usually! lol
I love this yogurt because of how fruity the puree is and I know most of the Muller corners are good like this, the strawberry flavour comes through strong even when you just mix a bit of the puree with the yogurt. I tried a bit of the puree on it's own and it's mega sweet, a bit like jam but it's got a more runny consistancy and is loads nicer than any jam I've had before!
Muller Corners are always filling because the yogurt is so creamy and thick, the puree is just there for flavour because it doesn't make the texture of it any different but the 2 together are delish!
These yogurts are quite expensive and about 54p each but in Tesco at the minute you can get 8 of any you like for £2.00 and that's a proper good deal. There's usually some sort of offers on so it's worth looking round in the supermarkets because of how dear they are to buy on their own.
For some bizarre reason my mum got a box of the smaller ones of these (8 pack of yoghurt) which are 95g so I thought whilst I'm still off work (now with the cold taking over my brain and messing that up with a migraine) I'll have one. The tub is white plastic with a reddy-pinkish foil and broken into 2 sections that are about a 75-25 split in the container, cutting off a "corner" in which the yoghurt can be split. Taking up the large portion is a thick creamy plain white yoghurt whilst the small section has a jam like substance (though other variations of the yoghurt have a solid cereal like substance in there instead), thus giving the yoghurt it's name of the "fruit corner".
Upon peeling back the lid the first thing you do is use a spoon to put the jam into the yoghurt and stir, according to Muller this keeps both the flavouring and the yoghurt fresh much longer than if they we're mixed together. Though it could be argued it's just a way to allow them to increase the price on what is already a premium yoghurt, as lets be honest, we all know Muller yoghurt is one of the highest quality ones out there. When mixed it leaves a white yoghurt with a nice thick jam traced through out a rather pinky look that mixes red and white into a wonderfully fresh looking yoghurt.
As a taste the yoghurt tastes as creamy as it looks which is incredibly delightful and scrumptious and is complimented excellently by the sweet strawberry flavoured jam that is again thick and well made. Eating the left over jam at the end provides an incredibly sweet treat that rivals proper jams in how nice it tastes. As a combination how ever they really are something special that rival any other yoghurt out there. In fact it's only 1 of the other Muller types that I've ever thought tasted better (they we're even creamier). Though sadly (as this was a mini version) their really wasn't a lot in the container.
Nutritional Information (per 100g)
15.6g Carbohydrates (of which 14.8g are sugars)
10g fat (of which 2.4g are saturates)
and some more that I'm straining my eyes to read so I'm not even going to try.
The product is suitable for vegetarians and contains no artificial colours, sweeteners or preservatives and 16% your RDA of calcium.
Overall a nice treat, though the small container wasn't ideal really and I know there are bigger better ones, it was still a rather nice snack. I'd definitely advise these as some of the best yoghurt treats out there and well worth trying.
I've already reviewed a number of Muller Yoghurt's but this is the first "corner" one I've done.
3 of these yogurts were packed together in a plastic 'sleeve' which is predominantly green. It has the usual Muller Corner logo on the front along with some pictures of strawberries. The back contains the ingredients, nutritional information & a few other bits 'n' bobs.
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 strawberry "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 ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Strawberries (12%), Sugar, Stabilisers: Pectins, Carob Bean Gum, Guar Guli, Flavourings, Citric Acid.
Nutritional Information per 100g
Energy kJ: 474kJ
of which total sugars: 14.9g
(of which saturates): 2.4g
Allergy information: contains milk.
Suitable for vegetarians
No artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners. A natrual source of calcium
Once you've pulled the lid off you'll see the almost virginal looking yogurt which is smooth and slightly off white. This has a slight aroma but nothing overpowering. The strawberry "sauce" is a dusky red colour and even I, with my notoriously bad sense of smell can detect the strawberry aroma coming from it. It all looks rather tempting.
So, a choice! Do you:-
+ Eat the yogurt & strawberry separately?
+ Spoon the strawberry into the yogurt & mix then together.
+ Take some yogurt onto you spoon then dip into the strawberry & eat them together off the spoon.
Personally I'd be tempted to pour the strawberry into the yogurt and mix it all together but then I wouldn't be able to tell what the separate elements tasted of. So....
The yogurt is very smooth and has a really pleasant creamy consistency. It treads that sort of bitter - sweet line where it's really one thing nor the other. However, that doesn't mean it's bland because it isn't. It has a cooling taste as well so would be nice to eat after something hot I would think.
The strawberry "sauce" is thicker in consistency, almost approaching jam-like thickness. It's a lot sweeter than the yogurt but then you wouldn't expect anything otherwise, would you?
Time to mix them together now then! I spoon the strawberry "sauce" into the yogurt and mix for a while. The yogurt goes a rather delicate shade of pink which is a little surprising as I thought it would probably be a bit darker given the deepness of the strawberry when it was on it's own. The yogurt still tastes very cooling even after you've added the strawberry. It's not as smooth now as it was on its own and it's moved more onto the sweet side since the strawberry was added. Very tasty and moreish though. You could quite easily eat more than one of these in a sitting.
At time of writing I got a 3 pack of these in my local shop for 64p
Tastewise you can fault these as they're very yummy and moreish. Each pot provides 27% of your RDA of calcium which is a good thing and, whilst not as low as Muller Light this yogurt does contain less than 4% fat. The bad news comes on the sugar front with almost 15% of the yogurt being sugar. Still, that's still below things like Dairy Milk chocolate bars. Also there's no gelatine or aspartame listed here (unlike some Muller Light Products). So, all in all, these may be worse for you on the sugar and fat fronts than Muller Light yogurts are but they're not going to cause you any degree of concern as far as gelatine and aspartame go.
I have always liked yoghurts since I was a young lad, and they have always been high on shopping list each week. One thing I have noticed over the years is that the choice has become bigger and bigger. Long gone are the days when I had the choice of about 6 different flavour St Ivel yoghurts - are you listening kids? You don't know you are born!:-)
One of the main manufacturers these days of yoghurts are muller. As well as the low fat yoghurts they also produce, amongst others, their corner fruit yoghurt. The flavour I am reviewing is strawberry. The packing looks different than the above. These yoghurts can retail upto a hefty 55p each in some shops, which I think is quite expensive. I usually wait for the offers, which come along quite regularly.
This yoghurt came in a pack of 6. If I bought 2 packs I would get them for £5, instead of £2.95 each. These still equated to about 42p a yoghurt, still a lot more than I think they are worth.
Upon peeling the lid back, I always scrape it first with my spoon, or if I'm alone, a good lick. Then I delve into the yoghurt. Many people fold the corner over and deposit the strawberry in with the yoghurt. I prefer a spoon of each as I go along. The yoghurt is very thick and creamy and certainly not low fat. The fruit is very much like a dollop of strawberry jam, although very tasty.
The lid tells me that this yoghurt will give me 27% of my RDA calcium. It also tells me that there are no Artificial Colours or Preservatives and no artificial sweeteners.
Stabilisers: Pectins,Carob Bean Gum, Guar Gum, Flavourings, Citric Acid and Milk
(well that is what the ingredients looked like, the writing was so small)
Unlike their low fat versions of yoghurt, you need to eat carefully here.
Each ot weighs in at 175g
of which sugars 14.9g
of which saturates 2.4g
Muller have even trade marked the shape of their pot.
In summing up I think this yoghurt is extremly tasty by itself, even without the fruit. The fruit however I could give or take. It is also not the healthiest yoghurt around. Recommended - just!
I'd finished my tea, and due to my huge main course, i wasn't feeling up to my usual pudding, such as sticky toffee pudding or a slice of apple pie. I wanted something light, that would satisfy my sweet tooth. So i ventured over to the fridge, not knowing what to find, my mum had been shopping the previous morning and I was positive the fridge would be bursting full of treats!
I was right. It was bursting full with yogurts and desserts. There was frozen chocolate desserts, chocolate puddings, little fromage frais, mullerlights, and wait...what was that..? A STRAWBERRY MULLER FRUIT CORNER. Wow I had not had one of these in a long while. I had had a couple of crunch corners and some of the newer dessert corners in the past couple of months, but no, i hadn't had a STRAWBERRY FRUIT CORNER in a long while.
I think perhaps it was the wrapper which caught my eye. The yogurt pot is 175g and it is unusally shaped. A large triangle, filled with yogurt and a much smaller triangle next to it filled with either your fruit compote, or sweet treat.
The wrapper on the strawberry fruit corner was extremely eye catching. The main colour being a bright reddish pinkish colour. In the bottom left hand corner there was a picture of a spoon, filled with creamy, bright white yogurt, topped with a layer of georgous looking strawberry compote.
In the top right hand corner ther are pictures of delicious looking ruby red strawberrys. MULLER CORNER is written on the pot, and the word FRUIT is written underneith in smaller fancyer writing. Very eye catching and appealing.
The yogurt is described on the pot as Thick and creamy yogurt with a seperate helping of strawberrys in syrup.
-COST AND AVAILABILITY-
We purchased our fruit corners from tescos. We bought 3 seperate corners, each costing 48p. This is not a brilliant price, yet it is not a bad price.
It is probably better value to buy these in multi-packs. Yes they do come in multi-packs, you can get fruit corner packs, crunch corner packs and dessert corner multi-packs. They are normally found in packs of 6.
Crunch corners are availiable basically everywhere..From your local super market, to the corner shop, you're bound to find them very near you.
Cost and availiability- 4/5
I sat at the table with my little delight. I couldn't wait to tuck in so i ripped of the paperish foilish lid quickly and I was about to dive in when a beautiful vanilley, slight strawberry aroma hit my nostrils. I got a little closer to the yogurt and took a sniff. Mmm it smelt very vanilla like, and there was a distinct "creamy" smell. The strawberry compote was not very smelly and i couldn't smell it untill i got really close.
I glanced at the fruit corner. The vanilla yogurt looked beautiful and creamy, almost white. The fruit compote in the little traingle container didn't look too appetizing i have to admit, it looked slightly gloopy and it looked as though there was huge chewy lumps in it. But was i going to be proved wrong in the taste test?
The main part of the review? I bet you are willing me to get on with it? Okay here goes.
I dipped my teaspoon in to the almost-white yogurt (yes i must use teaspoons, it makes the pud last longer). I raised the spoon to my mouth, took a deep breath and entered it into the tunnel (my mouth?!).
Wow! It was absoulutly beautiful. There was a distinct vanilla taste and it was rather sweet. yet not too sweet, it had a divine creamy taste aswell and once i had taken one spoonfull, i couldt stop myself going back for a second, then a third.
Next was the strawberry fruit compote. This, i was nervous about tasting, it didnt look very appetizing, but i braved it, dunked my spoon in and pushed perhaps reluctintly into my mouth. i was proved wrong. the taste was sweet and delicious. Though i was faced with large chunks of chewy strawberry, i would have perhaps preferred if the compote had been smooth..but it was decent.
Next it was time to mix the two flavours together. Mmmmm, it was lovely though i preferred them seperatly. Perhaps because i put too much strawberry on my spoon, but i found that the compote overpowered the delicious creamy yogurt when eaten together.
Yes, in a word, i would reccomend this. The creamy yogurt is one of the best vanilla flavour yogurt i have ever tasted, and believe me i have tasted alot of yogurts.
The price isnt too bad either, and because this isnt too unhealthy you can treat yourself more often than that of a crunch or a dessert corner.
also on ciao!
I've definitely had one too many 'Muller Fruit Corner Yogurts' in my time, and certainly those that are strawberry flavour. I have to admit that I rarely find a problem with 'Muller', it seems that they work hard on the taste which of course is the most important part and on the variety of yogurts available to buy, there's so many different ones you'll never get bored!
This flavour is probably the simplest, yet one of my favourites. Having said that I do tend to like the ones that have little chocolate balls, or flakes, or hoops, but when I'm after a bold strawberry flavoured yogurt I'll definitely always opt for this one.
The packaging of the yogurt is pretty standard, and has changed a little from the picture displayed above. They've modernised the image a little which of course appeals more in a market place where advertising and promotional image is in fierce competition. I like the design, simple, yet effective, and you can see exactly what you're getting from they beautiful strawberry's on the top of the pot.
Once you peel back the cover, you'll notice a plain yogurt in one pot, and a smaller pot containing the strawberry puree. I like this idea, and it's 'Muller's' U.S.P. You can choose to have all the strawberry in one go and mix it up with the yogurt, to have small scoops along with the yogurt. This way you can never blame the yogurt for being too overpowering, because you are the one adding the flavour. I usually tend to pour the strawberry in and mix it all up. This way the plain yogurt is livened up by the tasty strawberry puree and it goes down a treat.
These are definitely not sickly, as crazy as it sounds, some yogurts I have tried try too hard with the flavour and leave you feeling sickened by a taste that's too sweet and too rich, these are subtle, but enough to get your taste buds going.
Depending on how much you love this yogurt, you can buy single pots for around 50p - though 'Tesco's' have a crazy deal at five pots for £1 until the middle of May, don't miss out on that - or maybe you want more pots of this delicious yogurt, and opt for the pack of eight for around £3, or maybe you want to spice things up a little and buy the fruit variety pack, including two other flavours; cherry and peach (which are also delicious) for £3 also.
In a standard pot, there are 121 calories, which isn't far off a small chocolate bar, so if you're trying to diet and eat more healthily, I'd opt for the 'light' options. Per 100g there's just 4.0g of fat, and 0.3g of sat. The sugar content is pretty high at 17.3g, and I can guarantee this comes from the strawberry puree.
Definitely a yogurt I will continue to buy, and a brand I will stick with for years to come.
You will see from a couple of my other reviews I have got into yogurt, in quite a big way. I don't mean those teeny tiny pots that a child could polish off in 5 seconds. I mean a real yogurt, a yogurt that is replacing chocolate. Which means it needs to be interesting, taste pretty good and look appealing.
The next in the wonderful adventures of Yogurt girl.
I'm not a superhero, I'm sure you all know that already. But I am loving the yogurts and the corner ones especially, I think giving you something to do makes it seem more of a meal than slurping your yogurt down- or as I would - dip a digestive in it mmmmmm.
So I open the foil backed lid and can smell the sweet aroma of the strawberries and the yogurt. What I like about the plain yogurt is the taste, it is nice tasting if a little sour (not in an off way) but it makes you want something with it. Which is where your Strawberry Corner comes in.
I tip, then I scrape. A lot. There is still some in there but I'm gonna scrape until there is no more left. Eventually I have got most of the strawberry into the larger corner section. Because I like the unusual taste of the plain yogurt I don't mix the two flavours together- oh no. I take a bit of the strawberry and a bit of the yogurt. Wow! What a taste - and not a digestive in sight, this is really great. I am really enjoying it. Yum.
Then in less time than it would take to enjoy a Kit Kat, it's gone, leaving me with yogurt on my nose (I had to get it all out of the pot. I couldn't leave any!) But I feel satisfied. I have had my 'sweet treat' for the day and I'm happy, I don't want any chocolate or crisps, wow this is working. I feel good.
The strawberry is very sweet and will be enjoyed with the yogurt to balance out the yogurts more sour flavour. Probably one for the sweeter tooth of us. 113calories per 100g (this pot is 175g) is not too bad, and you could have this everyday for a treat, providing you don't have 6 of them or a Twix as well. The nice thing about Muller is the promise there are no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives in this yogurt (and indeed most of their products) the reassuring thing about this particular flavour is the lack of ingredients. For something which seems rather complex, it has an assuring short list of ingredients.
I'm sure everyone's heart sinks if they catch sight of something that has lots of e- numbers or lots of ingredients you have never heard of. Fear not with this yogurt.
My 17 year old daughter has started to take a little more interest in her food lately - she's always been a fussy eater - so she decided to go shopping with her Dad to choose some different products.
Amongst the items they bought were a pack of 6 x Snack Size Strawberry Muller Fruit Corners - more of a mouthful to type rather than to eat!
They cost around £1.48 & the 6 pots were neatly stacked between thick cardboard which was clearly marked & nicely designed. Although the pack clearly states 'Snack Size' I was a bit taken aback when I saw how small the 75g individual pots looked. I guess they're fine for little ones or pixies but no way could they satisfy a hungry adult?
The pull-pack foil lid revealed the contents which are just as you'd get with the larger pots - one side with the creamy yoghurt & the other compartment with the strawberry & syrup mix. The smell is lovely as you can take in both the strawberry & vanilla yoghurty smell at the same time & you just have to eat straightaway!
The strawberry syrup was a bit sweet for me but the yoghurt was as lovely & creamy & tasty as you'd expect from Muller. I like to eat mine taking a teaspoon of the fruit, then dipping it in the yoghurt whereas my daughter likes to mix the 2 & stir it to make a dark pink mix.
The snack was really nice & satisfied my craving for something sweet but didn't satisfy my hungry tummy I'm afraid - but, to be fair, they are the snack size.
All the ingredients, nutritional information, storage guidelines etc are listed on the cardboard sleeve & (in very hard to read print) on each pot - they aren't the healthiest yoghurts around but they are very yummy in our opinion.
- lovely vanilla creamy yoghurt.
- strong taste of strawberry but the syrup in the compote made it too sweet for my taste.
- not the healthiest nor the cheapest yoghurt treat around but very tasty & convenient.
I love muller fruit corner yogarts and the strawberry is my favourite by far. The yogart comes in two segments, a plain yogart side and a smaller side full of strawberry syrup and strawberry pieces and the idea behind this is that you add the strawberry side to the plain yogart and enjoy.
The yogart alone is quite dull and boring, it just tastes plain and bland and is quite thick (though not the thickest yogart I have tried) in texture. It really comes all together and tastes great though when you add the strawberry syrup and strawberry bits mixture, this makes the yogart change colour and to pink and gives it a bit of flavour which is nice and not too over powering but a great taste overall off sweet strawberries and syrup.
Dont think that these fruit corners are healthy though just because the label says fruit, there is just under 200 calories per yogart and the strawberrys are full of syrup and so make the yogart very high in sugar content, so this is not exactly one for the diets.
Overall I think that these yogarts taste great but dont be fooled by into thinking that they are really healthy, they are a lovely sweet strawberry yogart when the two parts are mixed together and a lovely fruity sweet treat for people who arent really watching their sugar intake.
I felt kind of sick earlier due to baking cakes and eating one too many, so I skipped dinner and decided to just have water to clear the pukey feeling, but then I got pretty peckish and decided I needed something light, but filling. That's where my good friend the Muller Fruit Corner comes into my life again. This time I decided it was to go for one I hadn't had before - Strawberry.
The Strawberry flavoured Muller Fruit Corner comes in a pot not unlike the other Muller Corner yoghurts - a white plastic split pot, containing 2/3 yoghurt, 1/3 strawberry sauce and strawberries. The lid of this yoghurt (another one which has changed since Dooyoo uploaded it) is just like the other muller lids, a foil, easy peel lid with the Muller Fruit Corner in the centre of a white blob. Surrounding this blob is a picture of some strawberries and a green section on the bottom with all the small print and nutritional information. If the strawberries on the front were anything to go by, then this would be absolutely delicious.
On the lid, it claims to be a 'thick, creamy yoghurt with a strawberry fruit corner'. So what would it smell like when I peeled back the lid? Fresh strawberries? Cheap strawberry mush? The 'thick, creamy yoghurt' that hasn't been given a flavour (and was used in the Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate Muller Fruit Corner)?
I peeled back the foil lid and again, like the Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate yoghurt, I wasn't immediately hit with any smell but eventually I could distinguish a lovely, fresh strawberry scent. It actually made me crave strawberries even more, but seeing as I didn't have strawberries in my fridge, the (already opened) yoghurt would have to do. The strawberry fruit corner was deep red with a pinky purple tiny to it. It was shiny and you could see little chunks of real strawberries in it - it basically looked delicious. The yoghurt itself was white, thick, creamy and shiny - much like vanilla yoghurt - delicious looking.
So it looked good, but did it taste good?
I tasted a little of each side before deciding how to eat it (as I always do). The fruit corner was to die for, I really could have eaten it all and not care about the yoghurt, but I don't like to waste things, so I tasted the yoghurt anyway. I was strange. Like sour, tasteless, white goop. I decided if I was to be able to eat the yoghurt, I would have to mix the two together. After mixing the two, I was left with a lumpy, pink mixture. Sadly, the sourness of the yoghurt overpowered the sweetness of the strawberries - not impressive.
Hopefully eating sour strawberry mush won't do too much damage, and if it does, it definitely wasn't worth it...let's find out.
Each 175g pot contains 197 calories, 6.8g of fat and 27% of your recommended daily allowance of calcium.
This isn't one that I plan on buying again, which saddens me because I loved the strawberry fruit corner part :(
Thank you for reading!
I like strawberry yogurt. It is a good staple standard flavour that is not too overwhelming and is familiar enough to be tasty and reassuring to eat. I was not however a big fan of the Muller Corner strawberry yogurt. I found it to be a little to sweet for my taste.
The plain yogurt is too sweet for a start. I prefer my yogurt to be live and a little on the sour side - this is proper yogurt in my opinion. The yogurt in this tastes more like those yogurt flavoured mueseli bars that don't actually contain any real yogurt at all!
The strawberry jam in the corner is slightly sharp and if you mix it in with the yogurt, it does tone down the sweetness very slightly. It is still too sweet though overall.
I would prefer there to be more chunks of strawberry rather than the jam-like fruit that you get in the corner.
They cost about 50 pence each, which is more than most yogurts but the pots are larger and more filling. At 113 calories per pot, that is just too many for something that is not all that great. It's ok but not worth the money or the calories.
Muller's corner grows yet more crowded with fruit.
