“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
I've never really been a great fan of yoghurts, especially the generic fruit flavoured ones with bits in (to me the bits resemble something unpleasant), I've always found them boring and unappealing despite many of them being a healthier alternative to other snacks such as chocolate and crisps. However, having said this I do go through phases where I have a bit of an urge to eat healthy and when this urge takes me I buy yoghurts in bulk. Sadly most of them will usually end up being thrown away after I have become even more bored of yogurts and my urge to eat healthy has deserted me.
Then I discovered the New York Cheesecake flavour in the Muller Light range during yet another healthy eating urge and I was more than converted to a yoghurt lover!
***Who are Muller***
Muller yoghurts where first made in 1896 by a man Called Ludwig Muller in a Barvarian village, in the 1970's his grandson took over the family business and by the 1980's it had launched the Muller Rice snack internionally. They are now a hugely successful brand who have six ranges of yoghurt based snacks which are Muller rice, Muller Vitality, Muller Light, Muller Corner, Muller Amore and Muller Little Stars.
Th Muller Light range consists of a wide variety of flavours from your basic cherry flavour to Vanilla and strawberry cheesecake. All the Muller Light yoghurts are fat free and claim to be a natural source of dairy calcium.
***The New York Cheesecake Yoghurt***
I was wonderfully suprised to find when I first tried this product that it does actually taste like cheese cake! It is a lovely thick and creamy yogurt that is cream in colour and contains actual cake pieces. Yes, I know I said I didn't like yoghurts with bits in and I wasn't quite sure about it at first but now I like the fact that it has something more to it other than just yogurt, it adds variets to the texture and its cake so how can I not like it?!?! The pieces of cake are very soft, almost verging on soggy but not, so please don't get the wrong impression, the texture of the cake pieces is satisfying, not off putting I just can't think of another way of describing it, but regardless of my poor excuse for a description for the cake pieces I have to say that it goes very well with and compliments the taste and texture of the yoghurt well.
In my opinion the yogurt is sweet enough to make you feel like you're having a naughty, high calorie treat and therefore satisfying any cravings for high sugar foods but in actual fact it is fat free and contains only 99 calories per pot - the best of both worlds, what more could you ask for?
I think this yogurt is great as a snack or dessert as it provides everything that I look in both.
Unfortunately this yoghurt is not suiable for vegetarians, coeliacs and people with lactose intolerance.
***Worth the money?***
These yogurts sell at around 60p per 165g pot, depending on where you do your shopping, which I think is quite expensive, especially if you are buying quite a few of them. Luckily it is a product that big shops such as Morrisons, Tesco and Asda have on offer quite a lot. Either way I think the yoghurt is worth every penny, but it's always a bonus if you can buy them when they're on offer.
***Would I Recommend?***
Put simply, yes! I would definately recommend this yohurt to anyone, it is something I eat and enjoy on a daily basis!
