      A delicious fruity yoghurt from Muller

      Yoghurts are quick, convenient, and are one of those things that I stock up on every week at the supermarket as they are handy to pack with a lunch or have with your breakfast as a healthy light snack. There are plenty to choose from and I have recently been going through the various flavours of Muller Light yoghurts. These are currently on special offer at several of my local supermarkets where you can buy 4 for £1.00, and the RRP of each one is 61p so it's quite a good saving.

      Muller Light yoghurts are available in a wide variety of flavours, and I chose this Summer Berry flavour as the limited edition label stood out against the others. Also, I have tried most of the other varieties now and I'm figuring out which ones I like or dislike. These yoghurts come in individual plastic tubs with a peel off foil lid. Each yoghurt weighs in at 175 g.

      The yoghurt itself was nice and creamy with a smooth texture to it. I found that it had a thicker consistency than many other low fat yoghurts that I've tried and this was a pleasant change. It's nice to be able to enjoy a low fat yoghurt that's not thin and runny! The Summer Berry yoghurt has a bright pink colour to it and looks appetising. It had a rich fruity taste and there were little pieces of real fruit mixed in as well to add a bit more interest. The flavour really stands out and has a tangy taste to it thanks to the balance between the sharpness and the sweetness of the fruits. The pieces of blackberry mixed in add some texture and make you feel that little bit healthier for eating real fruit!

      The 175 g tub is quite a generous portion size, and it turned out to be reasonably filling enough to bridge the gap between breakfast and lunch time nicely without leaving me craving more snacks. There are some definite positive points such as being fat free, low in calories, and providing 28% of your RDA of calcium. This is definitely a good choice for a low fat yoghurt and I will be buying this brand again in the future. This is fitting in very well with my new and improved healthy eating plan and I would certainly recommend this brand of yoghurts. This is a lovely flavour and a shame that it is only qavailable as a limited edition.

      Ingredients: Yogurt, Fruit 8% (Strawberry (3.5%), Blackberries (2.5%), Raspberries (2%)), Water, Elderberry Juice from Concentrate (2%), Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Sweetener: Aspartame.

      Tasty Summer Berries Yogurt

      When I purchased 4 pots of Muller Light at the weekend that I hadn't tried before I though that this one would probably be the nicest so I've saved it for last....

      Packaging:

      The yogurt comes in a plastic white & black pot. The pot is covered with the usual foil lid with a picture of some blackberries on it. The pot tells us that it weighs 200g that there are 88 calories per pot, that it's fat free and that each pot will provide you with 28% of your Recommended Daily Amount of calcium.


      The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Water, Fruit (8%) {Strawberries:3.5%, Blackberries 2.5%, Raspberries: 2%}, Water, Elderberry Juice from Concentrate (2%), Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Sweetener: Aspartame


      Nutritional Information per 100g

      Energy kJ: 213kJ
      kcal: 50kcal
      Protein: 4.1g
      Carbohydrate: 7.6g
      of which total sugars: 7.1g
      sugars naturally from fruit and milk: 4.7g
      Fat: 0.1g
      (of which saturates): 0.1g
      Fibre: 0.4g
      Sodium: 0.1g
      Calcium: 128mg

      Allergy information: contains milk. contains a source of phenylalanine.
      These desserts contain no artificial colours or preservatives.


      The Yogurt:

      On opening the pot I can see that the yogurt is sort of lilac colour which looks very similar indeed to the Cherry flavour. You can see bits of fruit in the yogurt and it looks to be of a thick consistency. Time to dig in!


      Taste:

      This yogurt has a reasonably thick consistency and, like yesterday's Peach and Pineapple, there seems to be quite a lot of fruit inside it. Of the three fruits listed on the ingredients ~ strawberry, blackberry and raspberry ~ the presence of the blackberries is the most readily apparent due to the fact that Muller haven't used seedless blackberries. They also appear to have used whole blackberries which, given that they're usually larger than raspberries means that they're more noticeable when you're eating them. In terms of strawberries I suspect that they used pices rather than whole ones.
      The yogurt itself is on the sweet side rather than have any sort of sour or tart edge to it, but it's no more sweet than any of the other flavours in this range.

      Price:

      At time of writing Morrisons have Muller Lights on offer for 25p


      Opinion:

      I really like this flavour but, given that I like strawberries, raspberries and blackberries as fruit anyway that's not such a surprise to me. The fruit and the yogurt work well together to create a nice contrast and it's nice to see some decent sized blackberries used rather than something smaller. Of course, this yogurt isn't for anyone who doesn't like "bits" in their yogurt or who can't handle seeds inside their fruit. It's quite tough to know where to rank it but I think, for me, that the presence of the blackberries just about pitches it over the Strawberry flavour.
      This yogurt will provide you with 28% of your RDA of calcium and, as with the rest of the range, is virtually fat free.
      On the negative side this yogurt contains both aspartame and gelatine, both of which some people have issues / concerns over and it's not suitable for anyone with any sort of milk intolerance or allergy.

      The lid says that these are a limited edition line so try one whilst they're still available.

        A fantastic alternative snack

        After reading a review for one of these on dooyoo I decided it would be nice to try one. Therefore when I spotted one during my weekly shop I popped one in the trolley. It cost 54p or they were also on offer at 4 for £2 (Tesco). The packaging is the same shape as all other muller light pots and has the same design. The predominant colour on the pot is black, with white writing and Limited Edition written in red. The foil lid shows a picture of summer berries and has the muller logo and Limited Edition written in big letters. The yoghurt weighs 175g which is quite heavy for a yoghurt.

        Upon opening the yoghurt I can see it is the expected deep pink colour of summer berries. It is similar in colour to the cherry yoghurt. You can see lots and lots of bits in the yoghurt which I assume to be pieces of various summer berries. Looking at the back of the pot I realise that 'Summer Berries' refers to strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. There is also elderberry juice. When eating the yoghurt I noticed that although the yoghurt itself was smooth it was overpowered by the amount of fruit in it, which was of a vast amount. Aswell as pieces of all the fruits I also found 3 whole raspberries. Therefore, the yoghurt was actually quite crunchy, I found it to contain a number of bits which can get stuck in the teeth. The yoghurt was a refreshing taste and was fruity yet not as strong as others I have tried before. The yoghurt was thick and creamy.

        As all muller light yoghurts, this is described as fat free although it does contain sugar and sweeteners. The pot tells me that per 100g (just over half of the pot) contains 50 calories, 7.1g sugars (4.7g naturally occurring from fruit and milk) and 0.1g of fat (0.1g that saturates), therefore it is quite a healthy snack and can be enjoyed regularly especially due to the majority of the sugars being naturally occurring.

        Although this yoghurt is Limited Edition, I will certainly be buying it again as I found it to be very refreshing on a warm day and I believe it to be a much healthier sweet snack than chocolate or biscuits. The pot is also of a very good size meaning that it serves as a snack or dessert well and fills any hunger pangs. I would recommend people to buy this if they enjoy sweet snacks or fancy a refreshing fruity snack on a warm day!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I was not particularly satisfied with the yoghurt

          I am still working my way through the Muller light yoghurts that I bought at Tescos a few weeks ago. This variety is a Summer Berries fat free yoghurt.

          Packaging: The packaging is slightly different than that of a typical Muller light yoghurt. The size of the pot is the slightly less (175 g rather than 200g), but the colour is a cross between black and white with quite an elaborate foil lid with pictures of the summer berries (blackberries, strawberries and raspberries). Presumably this is to clearly indicate that this variety won't be on sale for long as it is marked as a "limited edition" yoghurt. The foil lid is simple to remove without splitting the foil by gently pulling the lip.

          Appearance: My initial appearance was not the best - the yoghurt and some liquid has slightly separated around the edges. The colour is a dark pink colour with the odd piece of visible fruit which mostly looks like bits of blackberry. A good stir indicates that the yoghurt is fairly thick. The fruit pieces are quite small which makes the yoghurt a bit more appetising.

          Smell: The smell is quite fruity and is a cross between blackberries and raspberries and is noticeable but is not overpowering.

          Taste: The taste is not as sweet as I was expecting and tastes a bit artificial. The aftertaste is not the best either, perhaps due to the presence of the ubiquitous artificial sweetener, aspartame. Whilst the pieces of fruit are quite small, there are unfortunately pips present which stick in between your teeth which is a bit of nuisance. Overall, I was disappointed with the taste and was not particularly satisfied with the yoghurt.

          Healthy? The Muller light yoghurts are quite low in calories (88 calories) and are essentially fat free. The yoghurt also contains 28% of the recommended daily allowance for calcium and does not contain any artificial colours or preservatives. The yoghurt does however contain aspartame as an artificial sweetener. Nutritional Information is provided below.

          Overall: I was disappointed with the taste of this product and thought it tasted a bit artificial. The main reason for it getting 2 stars (and not 1 star) is that it is low in calories and is essentially fat free.

          Nutritional Information:

          Energy: 213 kJ (50 kcal)
          Protein: 4.1g
          Carbohydrates: 7.6g

          I'm not going to miss this one!

          The newest special edition yoghurt from müller light is "Summer Berries." I spotted it in tesco after putting a banana and custard flavour one in my trolley. As I couldn't remember whether I actually liked that flavour I decided to substitute it with Summer Berries. I have found that the limited editions from müller light have been somewhat hit and miss but I didn't think they could really go wrong with Summer Berries.


          Ingredients and Nutritional information
          175g of yoghurt has 88 calories per pot which is less than most of the other müller lights, it is fat free, has 28% of the RDA of calcium and contains no artificial colours or preservatives. There is 0.1g of saturated fat and so is a great snack or desert for people on diets, although it should be noted that it does contain sweeteners including Aspartame. It also contains Gelatine and Milk so is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans. Obviously it needs to be kept refrigerated, I was astounded at the length of the best before date which was a total of 32 days after I had bought it.

          Taste Test
          Upon opening the lid, I did the usual and scraped the excess off the lid using a spoon. I was a little disappointed at this first taste as I couldn't taste much at all. There was a distinct lack of flavour. The yoghurt is the colour of dirty purple and looks very pleasant. It is nice ad smooth with bits of fruit scattered around. The first thing I noticed on the first spoonful was the creamy texture of the yoghurt; it just slid nicely down my throat. The overwhelming flavour I could taste was raspberries, and other than that I couldn't taste a whole lot. The flavour is meant to be summer berries with Elderflower. Now I don't actually know what an elderflower is meant to taste off as I've never had it before but I do know that whatever it should taste like is drowned out by raspberries. As raspberry is my favourite yoghurt flavour I wasn't too disappointed. The thing that was disappointing is that the chunks of fruit are completely tasteless! I could not discern what they were meant to be because they all tasted the same... of nothing. As usual there are the annoying pips that get stuck in your teeth but that is something that occurs in most fruit yoghurts and shows they use actual fruit.

          Summary
          I enjoyed the yoghurt as a desert. It wasn't overly filling which was odd as I usually find that müller lights are quite filling. It was worth a try but I wont miss it when it stops being produced.

            A sweet fruity yoghurt.

            Muller Summer Berries light yoghurt, 55p for a 175g tub at Morrison's, if you are a summer fruit fan like me then it has to be worth a try.
            The summer fruit yoghurt has been put into a nicely contoured tub, one of those tubs that we always wash out afterwards and keep, feeling sure that it will come in handy at some point in the future.
            All of the way around the outside of the tub there is a wealth of product information that we will move onto a little bit further on into the review.
            The tub has an easy-peel foil lid which bears the product description `a light limited edition`.
            Then below the description is a jumble of berries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries.

            Seeing as I have taken the lid off and I am already enjoying my fourth large teaspoonful I think I had better move swiftly onto tell you what the yoghurt itself is like.
            The pot is two thirds full of a very summery berry coloured yoghurt. Imagine a cross between a raspberry and an elderberry colour and that is what you have, the light yoghurt is thick and stays firm as you put the teaspoon into it.
            Sweet with a short sharp bite, the yoghurt is a mass of summer berry pips and there are a few whole blackberries in the pot.
            As you spoon it out the yoghurt is thick enough to stay on the teaspoon and it tastes remarkably creamy for such a low fat dessert.
            There is the tiniest after-taste which I am putting down to the artificial sweetener that has been used but this taste doesn't linger.
            By the time that I have worked my way to the bottom of the tub the only whole fruit that I have come across are the few blackberries, the rest of the fruit has been pulped in the manufacturing process.

            The low fat yoghurt contains both sugar and sweetener and 8% of the contents of the pot is made up of fruit, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. Another 2% is concentrate of elderberry juice.
            Fat free, 88 calories a pot and 28% of our recommended daily intake of calcium.
            The yoghurt contains no artificial colours or preservatives.

            I personally enjoy the summer fruits though the mass of tiny pips may be a slight irritant to some.
            The summer berries yoghurt is pleasant and it would be good to have along with other chopped fruit, maybe with a sliced banana.
            I also think that the yoghurt would work well on top of a couple of Weetabix, the combination of textures would be interesting.

            Some of the Muller light yoghurts are far too watery for me and I was keen to sample their latest effort. For me this is a better option than some of the flavours in the range, it has far more body.
            I went to Sainsbury's a few days ago and the Muller summer fruits light yoghurt was nowhere to be seen but it was in Morrison's today.
            I don't think this will be a hit with the children, the berry pips may well put them off but as an adult dessert it tends to strike the right chords.
            One small point to take issue with- there are only three types of summer fruit and the fourth flavour is derived from a juice concentrate. Also the ratio of fruit to yoghurt is slightly poor.
            I would imagine the longer the yoghurt is chilled the more enjoyable it would be, my pot was semi-chilled and by the time I reached the bottom of the pot the yoghurt was relatively warm.

            So, to sum it all up. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it again but the pot full that I ate I enjoyed.
            Information on the pot tells to to enjoy the yoghurt regularly within a healthy lifestyle. So from my point of view this is one for the odd occasion.
