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!
Summary: A gorgeous, luxurious yoghurt from Muller in lemon cheesecake flavour.
