“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
==Price and Availability==
I recently bought this Muller Light Lemon Cheesecake Yoghurt as part of a six pack of 'Inspired by Cheesecake' yoghurts. There were three of the lemon variety and three New York Cheesecake Yoghurts, the yoghurts are sometimes available separately but it often depends on what Muller is marketing at any given time. I paid just under £2 for six yoghurts from Morrisons, Tesco have them on offer for £2.50 and the individual pots are regularly on a 5 for £3 offer so there's quite a bit of variance in price. The yoghurts are pretty much always on offer, they're about £4 at full price which in my opinion is a bit too expensive.
==Muller Light Lemon Cheesecake Yoghurt==
Muller Light Yoghurts come in quite big plastic pots with a foil top. This particular yoghurt as I mentioned before is part of the Inspired by Cheesecake range, they were initially Limited Edition but have been available in a multipack for a few years now. As with all Muller Light yoghurts this Lemon Cheesecake is fat free which was partly the reason I bought it, I love having a sweet treat but don't want to feel guilty afterwards. There's also only 99 calories per pot which is obviously pretty low and great for anyone counting the calories.
Muller Light Lemon Cheesecake Yoghurt is lemon yoghurt with crushed cake pieces mixed in. The yoghurt is very pale yellow in colour and the cake pieces are visible, they look a little odd to be honest and although the yoghurt looks appetising the bits spoil the look a bit. The yoghurt doesn't have an obvious scent until it's on the spoon and near my mouth and therefore my nose, there's a nice citrus scent but stronger than that is the smell of very sweet cake which to me is very appealing. The yoghurt itself has a lovely thick and creamy texture, with a nice and tasty lemon flavour; it isn't tangy but quite subtle. The cake pieces are a little disappointing, obviously because they are in the yoghurt them they are very soft and a little wet, I can't help thinking this yoghurt would work better in the Crunch Corner variety that Muller do. The overall taste of the yoghurt is good, the lemon of the yoghurt is complimented by the sweetness of the cake and it's hard to believe this is fat free. For me the texture of the cake just doesn't work at all though and lets the otherwise yummy yoghurt down a bit.
Although I like the taste of these yoghurts and they're a great way to have a treat without being too naughty the texture of the cake pieces just doesn't work at all. It's a shame that Muller haven't improved these yoghurts because the flavour really works well but because of the pieces of cake I probably wouldn't buy them again.
I'm not the kind of person who would normally review a yoghurt. In fact, I'm not the kind of person who would tend to eat yoghurts all too often. My girlfriend buys in a lot of yoghurts, and occasionally I'll eat one if the mood strikes me - but I'm no connoisseur!
I do like Muller yoghurts though, and I enjoy the 'light' range, although not quite as much as the others. I would always choose a nice unhealthy Crunch Corner over a low fat alternative, which is why I decided to review this particular flavour. For a great cheesecake lover, the name alone was enough to entice me. So I eagerly looked forward to this today - and it was worth it!
The flavour of this yoghurt is amazingly sweet and delicious. It tastes just like a creamy, zesty lemon cheesecake, and the little balls of cake are an unexpected delight. The fat content and calories are an added bonus to this tasty treat.
I'm not sure there's much more I could say about a yoghurt, except that there are two more in my fridge that don't stand a chance of surviving the next two days. I think this is the first light yoghurt I have tasted that would be chosen before most full fat ones. A lovely little snack!
The Muller Light Lemon Cheesecake Yoghurt only contains 105 calories in total and its fat free, making it a very appealing dessert. Having recently started the Slimming World diet I've become quite accustomed to the Muller Light range - because being low in calories also means that they're low in 'syns'.
You can pick these yogurts up in most of the major supermarkets, but sometimes you have to hunt for this particular flavour and I find that sometimes they don't have it in at all.
The yogurt comes in the typical Muller Light pot, which is circular and fairlydeep. There's a picture of a slice of lemon cheesecake on the lid, but the packaging isn't that distinctive, so make sure you check the product name and don't just presume you've got the right flavour by quickly glancing at it.
Each yogurt will cost you around 65p, but you can pick them up for cheaper if they're under offer - at the moment you can buy 12 in Asda for £3.00!
This dessert has a thick creamy texture and it has a strong lemony taste. Within the yogurt there are also small pieces of biscuit that loosely resemble the base of a cheesecake.
The tangy lemony taste and the creamy texture make it hard to believe that you're eating a product that is low in fat and calories, so if you're looking to lose a few pounds in the run up to Christmas then I recommend that you invest in a few pots of Muller Light Lemon Cheesecake, because although they're low in calories they're full of taste!
This review is about Muller Light Limited Edition Lemon Cheesecake yoghurt.
~*~* Packaging *~*~
The yoghurt is served in the traditional Muller yoghurt pots, which are squat and wider than normal yoghurt pots in shape. The lemon cheesecake variety is not one of the 'permanent' range (such as strawberry or vanilla flavours of Muller Light) and as such has more distinctive 'limited edition' branding (which is quite different to the picture used to accompany this review). This takes the form of a glamorous and eye-catching black and white monochrome design, with a luscious slice of yellow lemon cheesecake on the lid - very tempting.
~*~* Price and where to buy *~*~
This yoghurt, like most other Muller Light varieties, retails for around 50p per pot. This yoghurt is also frequently included in cheaper special offers (such as '8 for £3.00') at the usual supermarket chains, so keep your eyes peeled.
The yoghurt can be bought from all of the larger supermarkets (Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda etc).
~*~* Nutritional information *~*~
Possibly the greatest thing about this yoghurt (besides its utter deliciousness!) is the fact that it is fat free. Yes, that's right, this creamy and oh-so-naughty feeling yoghurt is fat free and contains only around 105 calories per pot.
If you're on a diet, this is good news. If you follow the Slimming World diet, this yoghurt does contain 1 naughty Syn, which is a small price to pay for such a scrummy dessert!
The yoghurt contains wheat, therefore is not suitable for people with wheat intolerances and also contains gelatine (which is not specified as suitable for vegetarians) so may be best avoided if you're vegetarian.
~*~* Taste test *~*~
The yoghurt has a gorgeous sweet (but not sickly) lemon tang, the flavour having a slight synthetic sweetness. The yoghurt has really managed to replicate a cheesecake scent - biscuit base flavour too! - so that each mouthful tastes and smells exactly like a spoonful of creamy cheesecake.
The yoghurt is also gorgeously thick and feels really indulgent for a low-fat option. This is fantastic if you're watching your weight as this feels more like a proper dessert than a boring, bland yoghurt, so feels a real treat.
The yoghurt has a smooth mouth-feel with no lumps of fruit but tiny chunks of nibbly, soft, squishy pieces of biscuit (which feel more like slightly gelatinous cake but go really well with the creamy yoghurt). Muller have created this yoghurt in a soft and pale lemon-yellow colour, in-keeping with the cheesecake theme.
~*~* The verdict *~*~
I adore this yoghurt - it is creamy, sweet and feels like a real treat dessert rather than a low-fat yoghurt. It is low in calories, has a refreshing but exactly replicated lemon cheesecake flavour and is reasonably priced for a single-serving yoghurt.
It's a shame this yoghurt is not suitable for vegetarians or those with wheat intolerances so those are the only downsides, otherwise I would totally recommend this gorgeous, sumptuous yoghurt!
I have to say I'm surprised at the lack of positive vibes on this site for the Lemon Cheesecake flavoured Muller Light. Recently on my dawdling around Morrisons, after a brief bit of fun coasting along the aisle with a shopping trolley I stumbled on a stupendous offer. Twelve Muller Lights for two of your finest English pounds! That's less than twenty pence a yoghurt I thought to myself and proceeded to load up the trolley.
Usually with these offers you normally find choice is limited and my powers of deduction came up with the notion that Apricot yoghurt is not really the nations favourite.
Anyway Lemon Cheesecake flavour was different from the rest as it came with a sexy black foil top and exclaimed itself as a limited edition. It's like wanting to nibble on that girl you fancy but she's always with someone else at the time. But I digress; I like cheesecake so went for it.
This flavour has a bit more of a mousse like texture to it than other Muller Light's but it's still appealing. The colour is a very pale yellowish white. Now for me the flavour is very refreshing and clean. You can taste the lemon but not to the extent where it becomes sour and offputting. The yoghurt also has cheesecake pieces in. You can barely notice them but they are soft biscuity pieces, a nice addition I think.
For all you calorie counters out there, these yoghurts are low in fat and a 175g pot weighs in at just over 100 calories. Not too shabby as a desert, of course there are some yoghurts out there lower in calories but they're not as yummy.
Now how much more can you write about yoghurt? Well I have more!
I opened up one of my pots to find some mould had developed around a bit of the rim. A bit rank and offputting, especially as it was still in date. I sent an e-mail to Muller about this and within a couple of days I was sent £5 in money off vouchers - now that's great service!
I would definitely buy this flavour again and would even go as far as to say it's my favourite - except that one with the cherrys in the bottom and chocolate sprinkles.
I have been following the Slimming World diet plan for 11 weeks now, and am getting to the point where the novelty of being on a diet is really starting to wear off, and I want to indulge in naughty sweet treats. When I noticed that Muller Lights were on offer for the bargain price of 12 for £2 in Morrisons I thought I would take the opportunity to try some different flavours to my standard Cherry and see if I could find something to satisfy my sweet tooth.
I had not tried the Muller Light Lemon Cheesecake before but being partial to citrus flavours I thought it sounded yummy, as it said it contained real cake pieces! On the lid it contained a picture of a lemon and a huge slab of cheesecake, so I couldn't wait to eat this. It comes in a large 175g pot
On opening the lid, I could smell a slightly artificial lemony scent that was familiar but I couldn't quite put my finger on what it reminded me of. Inside the pot was a thick pale yellow yogurt with visable lumps which I assumed to be the cake pieces. On tasting the yogurt I realised what the aroma reminded me of - when I opened the dishwasher after using lemon tablets!! The taste was similar too - it left a real chemical aftertaste that left my tongue feeling funny. The cake pieces weren't any better either - they were too small to have any cake texture to them, and due to having been sitting in the yogurt since production, had become like little balls of slime!! Not nice at all. I only managed 3 spoonfuls when I decided I would rather have a stick of celery!!
Most of the Muller Lights are a free food on the Slimming World plan, but this one is 1 syn - now I know that it doesn't sound a lot, and had it been nice it would have been worth it, but when you only get 10 a day I felt really cheated to have wasted one of this!! I could have had a fifth of a glass of wine! Luckily I only bought two of these, but will apologise in advance to my class Slimmer of the week who will be getting this as their gift next week!! Now I know why I stick to my cherry yogurts - luckily this states it is a limited edition so let's just hope its binned before too long....
After trying many of the other flavours in the muller light range like vanilla, strawberry and toffee and enjoying them very much, I thought this flavour was going to be just as good, but to my disappointment, I was mistaken.
One of my favourite deserts of all time is cheesecake, especially lemon cheesecake, so I was very excited when I saw this limited edition flavour on the shelves of morrisons and proceeded to purchase one straight away.
When I first opened the lid, it just looked like yellow yogurt with these small dark brown oval shapes floating around within it, but it did smell very appealing and lemony so I gave it a try. It claims to be a lemon flavoured yogurt with cheesecake pieces within it but when I did taste it, I was disappointed to discover that the cheesecake pieces were very soft and slightly soggy, not the crunchy, crispy texture that I was expecting. The lemon yogurt was also very tart with a bitter aftertaste that was not a reminder of fresh lemons at all. The one good thing about it though was the thickness of the yogurt as it wasn't too runny yet also not too thick.
Another upside is that they are only about 105 calories per pot, and they are quite large portion sizes which takes away the guilt of having such a usually decadent desert type yogurt but this really doesn't make up for the dissapointing taste.
I usually find that Muller Light Yoghurt is absolutely gorgeous, but I'm afraid this one is the exception. I love the vanilla, strawberry, cherry and many more of the flavours they have on offer so I decided to try the New Lemon Cheesecake flavour.
The yoghurt comes in a 175g plastic carton with a foil, peel back top which has a picture of a slice of lemon cheesecake and a couple of fresh lemons on it. The writing states 'lemon cheesecake flavour yoghurt with cake pieces'. So the whole thing looks appetizing and inviting.
Since this was a product in the Muller Light range, which I like, and flavoured with lemon cheesecake, which I adore, I figured that I was in for a treat. How wrong can you be?
The smell when I peeled back the lid was deliciously lemony and the yoghurt looked natural, so I was still hoping for a treat at this point.
Sadly, when I actually tasted the yoghurt I found to my disappointment that the lemon flavour was very synthetic and as such it left a metallic taste in my mouth. I had to re read the lid to find out what the little brown bits were - 'cake pieces' really? They looked and tasted more like soggy pieces of bread.
The texture of the yoghurt was good and it was as light as any of the others in this range but it just did not taste natural at all.
Now I'll give you a bit of general information about the Muller Light range.
Muller Light comes in 175g cartons currently costing about 36p each, but most supermarkets sell them at 3 for 99p so offering a saving of 9p on each set of three that you buy. I know it's not a lot but then again every little helps.
The nutritional information per 100g is as follows but bear in mind that this is only 4/7 of a 175g pot!
Of which sugars from fruit and milk 4.5g
Of which saturates 0.1g
Therefore each pot has less than 0.2g of fat and less than 110 calories as they are sweetened with aspartame, so they're ideal if you're on a diet, but obviously much better if you choose one of the range that tastes good!
My favourite varieties vanilla, which is lovely and creamy almost like custard, strawberry which is ideal for poring over fresh strawberries as a low calorie alternative to cream, and banana, which is lovely eaten poured over a fresh sliced banana.
Muller Yoghurts are made by Muller Dairy Limited of Shrewsbury Road, Market Drayton, Shropshire. TP9 3SQ and I would recommend most of them to anyone without hesitation.
As for the Lemon Cheesecake flavour - my advice is don't bother!
Incidentally there is currently a Limited Edition of this yoghurt available but it still doesn't taste any better than the original!
I'm always a bit let down by Muller Light yoghurts as they seem quite thin and runny. On seeing they were 5 for £1.00 in Tesco (instead of almost 50p each!) I had to buy some. Both myself and my fiance eat yoghurts everyday but if these are on offer I tend to buy some for him and something different for myself. On getting home and unpacking he told me he doesn't like this flavour so it's up to me to eat it!
This limited edition yoghurt is in the usual 175g pot which is very generous in my opinion. I'm on a diet so having only 105 calories and 0.1g of fat in the pot appeals to me. I peeled back the foil lid and looked inside, the yoghurt was quite a nice shade of yellow, not too gaudy as some lemon yoghurts can be. A bit of a stir was required with this one as the cakey bits seemed have sunk to the bottom! And the taste? Well, it's lovely and lemony, refreshing. But the cakey bits were quite disappointing, now, I've had yoghurts with cakey bits in before and these taste exactly the same so nothing wrong there. But I expected more somehow. It's a big pot and I probably got about 10 tiny pieces of cake, pretty disappointing.
All in all it's a runny yoghurt with a few disappointing cakey bits in there somewhere.
Less than 115 calories per 175gram pot and just 0.2 grams of fat this is certainly a healthy snack.
These are currently on 5 for a pound in Tesco so a complete bargain at that price and there are lots of flavours to pick from in the muller range.
I personally would not purchase this one again. You peel back the lid to what looks like a normal yoghurt but the texture once in your mouth is different to a usual yoghurt which did not surprise me as I suppose to get the cheesecake flavour across the consistency had to be changed somewhat. Though this product is certainly edible and I would not refuse one I would not go out of my way to get this flavour. I was seriosuly dissapointed by the tiny pieces of cake Muller had put in this yoghurt luckily there were not many, it just does not work I would of thought a few biscuity pieces would of been much better as real cheesecakes are a biscuit base not a sponge base as Muller have interpreted it.
The lemon flavour is certainly in the yoghurt but there was something else too that I couldn't quite put my finger on and I could not decide whether I liked this or not but the cake pieces definitely killed this one of any future shopping list of mine.
Not for veggies either as there is gelatine in this.
