“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
I have found myself buying Muller Light tubs a lot more recently because I've tried to settle into a pattern of eating more healthily and they are also on offer when I buy them so are never too expensive either. They are very convenient to eat as you simply just peel off the foil lid and dip in, so I can have them as a quick breakfast, snack or on the go if I've got a spoon with me. This is ideal as I often skip breakfast or snack on crisps throughout the day when I later feel hungry.
I like this flavour as with vanilla and chocolate you can't really go wrong. The flavours work together well and have a more luxurious taste than what you might expect of a low fat product. The consistency is easy to eat and thick and creamy tasting. The ratio of chocolate is also quite good as I didn't really expect much due to the fact it was so low in fat, but there was plenty mixed in. In general the taste is quite sweet and rich tasting.
The value for this product is pretty good. As I mentioned earlier, I can often get them on offer and as I have taken to buying online as I can't drive and the supermarket is quite a distance its very easy to take advantage of Asda's 10 for £3.00 deal as I don't have to worry about carrying them all the way home, not to mention the deal being very good value for money. This deal is a significant increase on Tescos 5 for £3.00. A single tub is 165g which is about right for a portion although I actually find it looks quite large compared to other similar products so it feels as though you get more for your money. Muller Light comes in lots of different flavours so its possible to mix and match with other flavours, although this one is my favourite.
I would recommend this as its a yoghurt I enjoy and is a high quality, good tasting product. It can often be bought on offer which makes it worth its price, which individually is about 68p. It contains 0.5g fat (0.3g saturdated) and so is great for those who are looking to eat more healthily.
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 Vanilla and Chocolate flavour as it is one of my favourite basic flavouring ingredients. Vanilla is usually a safe bet and I was excited about still being able to enjoy a chocolate flaovured treat while watching my weight! These yoghurts come in individual plastic tubs with a peel off foil lid. Each yoghurt weighs in at 165 g.
Vanilla is what I think of as a nice 'plain' flavour, but this is definitely not a bland and boring yoghurt. It has a very rich flavour which is also sweet and has a bit of a tang to it. The dark chocolate sprinkles are lovely, and even though the ingredients list them as only making up 0.5 % of the yoghurt, there is a generous amount and they are mixed through the whole yoghurt, not just a couple of sprinkles over the top. The dark chocolate has a nice sweet taste and adds an extra dimension to the vanilla flavour. It is not at all bitter like some of the more rich dark chocolate, it has a pleasnat taste and is perfect for satisfying a chocaholic on a diet! The yoghurt itself was nice and creamy but still light and with a nice smooth texture to it. It's nice to be able to enjoy a low fat yoghurt that's not thin and runny! It does have a slightly "frothy" sort of consistency, and vegetarians I am sorry to say that this product does contain gelatine.
The 165 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 a quarter of your RDA of calcium. This is definitely a top choice for a low fat yoghurt and I will be buying this flavour 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.

I have to say...WOW!!
I have recently started the Slimming World Diet.. where you can eat as many Muller Light Yoghurt's as you like. This flavour, Vanilla and sprinkled chocolate is my favourite! I have around 2 or 3 a day, whenever I get a craving for chocolate or something sweet.
I never knew that these yoghurt's were fat free, and that you could include them in your everyday diet.. If anything, i thought they would have the same calories as chocolate or a mousse as it is a dairy product.
They range in flavours: Vanilla, Toffee, Vanilla with chocolate sprinkles, Vanilla with chocolate sprinkles and cherry under layer, Orange with chocolate sprinkles, Bananas & Custard and lots more.
The yoghurt pots come either sold separately or in packs of 6. Usually around 56p each or £2.98 for 6- sometimes on offer in ASDA 12 for £5. The pots are 165g each and are around 65-80 calories- but are FAT FREE!
Since being on the slimming world diet, which I have found it very easy to keep up with, in the first week, I have lost 9lb- over half a stone. I would like to get back to my size 14 which is what I was before I fell pregnant. I feel that it would be achievable on this diet, especially when I introduce exercise.
We first tried this flavour a few months ago. We bought a 6 pack of Muller Yoghurts and it was the 3 newer ones that was in them. So we got 2 of each ones, and me and the wife both liked this one.
Suppose there is nothing that special about this one, but it is simple and tasty. This is just a plain Vanilla Yoghurt with dark Chocolate sprinkles on the top, so you can mix the sprinkles through and liven up the plain Yoghurt. Being dark chocolate I think this was the right choice, as the dark chocolate makes the chocolate flavour probably more chocolatey than if it was milk chocolate.
This was in the normal tub style. A wide enough round tub with a foil lid on it. Just eat stright from the tub. The colouring was just whites, browns and some light yellow on it.
Instead of being the usual 200g tub, this tub was only 165g. Thinking this was just because it was in the multipack I didn't think about it, but when looking in the shop in the individual tubs, this was the same size. Although a smaller size, this still costs around the 50p mark like the 200g tubs do.
This only has 86 calories in it, so good for people watching their weight.
Makes a plain boring yoghurt more interesting.
Popped into Tesco on the way home last night, looking for a bargain, and saw these on the 'offers' shelves. 53p for one 165g pot of this flavoured yoghurt (flavours also included strawberry, and cherry). However, 5 for £1!!!!! Too much of a bargain to miss out on getting these for 20p each, I popped a selection into the basket and carried on shopping.
We each had one last night for dessert. I had the vanilla and chocolate flavoured one, thinking it an interesting combo for yoghurts. Strawberry yogs tend to be similar whatever the brand or version, and I'm not so much a fan of cherry.
The yoghurts come in a round pot with one of those foil film peel lids. I'm not such a fan of these, as I find that the pressure can open them a bit more than the regular plastic lids that most yogs tend to have. As a result, I probably wouldn't recommend having this as part of a packed lunch. You may open up to find it everywhere!
The yoghurt itself is a nice consistency: not too runny and not thick and gloopy. It has that nice consistency that gives it some sense of solid creaminess, without being like a mousse or a fromage frais/petit filous. It smells nice enough, although the smell is very faint, and you have to get right next to it to get a whiff. Not a sickly smell by any means, which I felt it might be.
The taste test wins me over, too. You get the vanilla and choc flavours on the aftertaste as opposed to the initial hit, which is regular yoghurt with a sweetness to it that is pleasant. As the van & choc flavours come into things, they aren't accompanied by an over-sweet nature that I had imagined. They combine well, and Muller have definitely got the balance just right, with the vanilla incorporated into the yoghurt and the choc being sprinkled and mixed into it. Thumbs up.
What's even more pleasing is the nutritional content. Muller have made a point of advertising these as being healthier, and while you still get 86 calories per 165 pot, it's worth noting that most yoghurts are smaller, and don't give you 26% of your RDA of calcium. Nor can they say they are fat free, which this one is. There are sweeteners added, but no artificial colours or preservatives. Nor is there any cream. A lot of yoghurts have cream added to them for consistency, but this manages it without.
Overall, I recommended this product quite highly. It tasted great and was really good value. However, this only found its way into my basket being being on a great offer. 20p per pot is good value indeed. 53p for one isn't very good, and isn't something I'd be prepared to get on a regular basis, saving it perhaps for a treat. So, my advice is to get to Tesco and find this on offer now while it's still in place. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't get it, due to the price. Great yoghurt, though.
As a child, i always turned my nose up at yoghurts, preferring the obvious bad choices of chocolate and cakes. As an adult, and being more health conscious, i was very please to learn i could eat my yoghurt with the chocolatey bits too.
Muller light Vanilla yogurt is sprinkled with dark chocolate and is fat free withonly 86 calories per pot. Even better, it does not contain any artifical colours or preservatives. It comes in a 165g pot and is creamy and oh so tasty.
The chocolate bits are sprinked into the yogurt so not too much chocolate but the definate taste of it is evident. This is one of a new range of chocolatey yoghurts which can be bought in a pack of 6. I find they are very light and extremely tasty. The vanilla taste seeps through and it is both sweet and quite tart at the same time. The consistensy can be quite runny but they do have a creamy taste
The yoghurts, when sold singularly, retail for about 52p each, but alot of supermarkets tend to sell 4 for about £1.50 which is excellent value. They are lovely with pieces of fruit popped into them as well for a good filling dessert.
I haven't had any yogurt in quite some time so I hadn't been anywhere near the yogurts in Morrison's for quite a few months. This is probably why I wasn't even aware that these new yogurts had come out. Being the sort of person that will try most food type things at least once I duly popped a six pack into the trolley....
There are 6 pots of Muller Light Yogurt in this "collection". They are:-
+ 2 x Orange & Chocolate
+ 2 x Vanilla & Chocolate
+ 2 x Vanilla & Chocolate with a Black Cherry underlay.
The six pots are held in place with a piece of sturdyish cardboard which is then covered a the usual type of plastic bag which Muller use for of their 6 packs. This one is predominantly brown in colour with pictures of chocolate & orchid, chocolate & orange and chocolate, vanilla & cherry. The back of the pack lists the ingredients & nutritional information for each of the three flavours of yoghurt as well as Muller's address & website:- www.muller.co.uk
The ingredients for this particular flavour are-: Yogurt, Water, Fructose, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Powder, Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder, Butter, Sugar, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Stabilisers: Pectins, Guar Gum, Flavourings, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates, Calcium Citrates, Sweetners: Aspartame, Acesulfame K, Dark Chocolate Sprinkles 0.5%.

Energy kJ: 220kJ
of which total sugars: 6.8g
sugars naturally from milk: 4.1g
(of which saturates): 0.3g
Allergy information: contains milk. contains a source of phenylalanine
These dessert contain no artificial colours or preservatives.
The yogurt comes in a plastic white & brown pot. The pot is covered with the usual foil lid with a picture of some chocolate & what is presumably meant to be some orchids, representing the vanilla. The pot tells us that it weighs 165g that there are 86 calories per pot, that it's fat free & that each pot will provide you with 26% of your Recommended Daily Amount of calcium. On opening the pot I can see that the yogurt is sort of an off-white colour & that there are small flceks of the dark chocolate mixed in with the yogurt.
I push my spoon into the yogurt & the first thing I notice is the consistency. It seems a bit runnier than the usual Muller Light Yogurts, especially the Cherry, Strawberry and Raspberry & Cranberry ones which are the three I tend to eat the most often when I'm in the mood for yogurt. You can barely detect the taste of any chocolate but, whilst typing up the ingredients I noticed that the sprinkles are listed as 0.5% so perhaps this is not surprising. You have to wonder why they've included the chocolate sprinkles at all as I don't think anyone would notice whether they were there or not. If you're going to include something in a food product it should at least give the person who's eating it some sort of taste sensation. The chocolate here doesn't.
The yogurt itself was a bit odd tasting. It's been a number of years since I had any Muller Light Vanilla Yogurt but I don't remember it tasting like this. Still, perhaps my memory is at fault. The overriding taste was nothing like any sort of vanilla ice cream I've ever had either. It was almost as if someone had tried to thicken up some milk slightly & had added a few sweeteners to it & some butter (yes, I did detect a slight hint of butter as detailed in the ingredients).
Overall, it was just about edible but it's not something I'm keen to try again.
I paid £2.40 for one pack of these at Morrisons.
In terms of fat content this are very good because they're so low. They also get a plus point for providing you with over a quarter of your RDA for calcium. Looking at the ingredients we can see that they contain both aspartame & gelatine, two ingredients that a number of people have issues and / or concerns about. Purely on a taste level I won't be eating another one of these in the hurry. I can only hope that there's a big improvement with the other two flavours. If I could this product wouldn't get given any stars at all. As it is I'm forced to award it at least one (grudgingly)
I am a fan of Muller Yoghurt as it is, and enjoy working my way through the range. What ever the flavour the thicker bit around the top of the pot is always the bit I eat first. I have at least one Muller Light a day as they are so nice and low in fat and calories. I am not the only one who loves them, my whole family does too!
I was very excited to see a chocolate and vanilla one come out, as vanilla is my favourite and what girl can resist a bit of chocolate?
I wasn't disappointed, although it doesn't contain a lot of chocolate, there is enough to get the flavour. The amount of yoghurt in pot is less than the amount in the other flavours, I assume this is because the pot is still only 100 calories.
Its great as a snack, breakfast or pudding.
Muller make a huge range of yogurts is a wide range of different flavours. Muller make lots of popular yogurts including Amore, Muller Corner, Little Stars, Muller Light, Muller Rice and Muller Vitality as well. The Muller light yogurts are avliable in a huge range including fruit yogurts, layered fruit yogurts and the chocolate sprinkled range.
Muller Light vanilla yoghurt with Dark Chocolate sprinkles and obviously from the chocolate sprinkled range and they also do orange flavoured yogurt with chocolate sprinkles and you can get vanilla, with chocolate sprinkles with black cherry compote as well.
These are avaliable at tesco, Asda and Sainburys for 54p each or you can buy any 4 muller light yogurts for £4.00, this does include other flavours as well. I have also seen these yogurts in Morrisons which is where I got mine from, and they had them in there for the same offer as the other supermarkets.
As lke any other normal Muller light yogurt, this comes in a plastic pot and has a foil lid on top to seal the yogurt inside the pot. The foil top is very strong. On the side of the yogurt pot it lists the ingredients and the nutritional information.

When I peeled the foil lid off of the yogurt pot I was greeted with a creamy, off white looking yogurt with small chocolate pieces in. The chocolate pieces are very small and is more like grated chocolate. When smelling the yogurt it just smells like a normal Vanilla Muller yogurt. I can't smell a chocolatey smell, but perharps this is due to small gratings of chocolate in the yogurt itself.
This yogurt was lovely and creamy and you can taste the distinct vanilla flavour of the yogurt. Everytime you take a spoonful of yogurt you will pick up lots of tiny pieces of chocolate in with the yogurt which are probably so small they are like grains of sand in the yogurt. Allthough this yogurt has plenty of chocolate gratings in it I can't really seem to taste them much as im eating the yogurt. I can feel the texture of the chocolate pieces slightly, but I can't really taste chocolate at all, although I have to admit, that after eating this yogurt I was very satisfied and also felt a bit bloated as well.
This yogurt was yummy but I don't think there wa smuch chocolate taste to the yogurt, but Im guessing if the chocolate bits were bigger then it wouldn't be form the chocolate sprinkled range. My sister how-ever did really enjoy this yogurt and though it was really yummy and I know she would definately buy it again.
(Review also on ciao)
My experience of trying 'Muller' products has been a good one, more often than not I enjoy the yogurts and tend to buy them again. When I saw the new range of 'Muller Light' yogurts I couldn't not try them, and hoped yet again, 'Muller' would blow me away with another great tasting yogurt.
The branding of these yogurts is tastefully done, with a nice large image of the yogurt contents on the front, making your mouth water, and causing you to rush to the checkout to shorten the time it takes between seeing the yogurt and taking your first spoonful. The pot is a fancy shape, with the sides gradually opening out from the bottom to the top.
As I peeled back the foil I was in for a shock. From looking at the pot, I was expecting a good sized yogurt, but that was certainly different than what I got. I was outraged to find that my pot of 'Vanilla and Chocolate' yogurt was only half full! Talk about being ripped off, and why it surprised me so much was because I'd never experienced anything like if before with this brand, the yogurts are generally very full and a delight to eat.
When I had paid 54p for this pot from 'Tesco's' I was a little disappointed, and would have much rather had one of the original yogurts to be sure I was getting what I paid for. It's a real shame that this wasn't up to scratch, because 'Muller' has never failed to provide excellent yogurts in the past.
Anyway, on to the tasting, and thankfully I was back into familiar grounds. The taste was brilliant; the vanilla flavour burst inside my mouth and slowly trickling down my throat and the finely cut pieces of chocolate gave the yogurt a rich and luxurious taste. It was a match made in heaven. I can't argue against the taste of this yogurt, it was simply delicious!
To conclude, where this product excels is in the taste and the wholesome brand. 'Muller' has built a reputation that will last as long as they continue to produce fantastic yogurts. Where this product fails is in the price due to the amount of yogurt I got. I'd be more prepared to pay 30p for this yogurt, and then I wouldn't have been so outraged. Filling the pot half full just isn't on. I'll be sticking to 'Mullers' original yogurts because I know with them I'm getting a great product.
Muller have some great products and this is one of my favourites. It is Mullerlight Vanilla and chocolate. It comes in a 200g pot, which is bigger than the average yogurt. It certainly does contain a big portion too. The plastic pot is quite sturdy and the foil lid keeps everything enclosed. The Mullerlight name is everywhere so there is no mistaking the name or product. The vanilla aroma when you open the foil lid is gorgeous, the yogurt is a lovely creamy cream/light beige colour. It looks very appealing to the eye. There are hundreds of tiny dark chocolate shavings running throughout the yogurt. You simply want to dive in straight away. The chocolate does blend in with the colour of the vanilla yogurt which produces a strange grey/brown mixture which is a little off putting. However the flavour is still there and it is a wonderful flavour. The vanilla combined with dark chocolate is fantastic. You would not be able to tell that this is a low fat/low calorie product.(all the nutritional information is easy to read and understand). A superb yogurt.
I thought that they would never be able to make a low fat vanilla and chocolate yoghurt without skimping on the taste but i was so very wrong. The yoghurt itself is smooth and glossy with small shavings of what seem to be dark chocolate throughout the vanilla yoghurt. The taste is not overpowering but delivers both chocolate and vanilla flavour in equal strength.
Just when you thought you had tried all of the Muller Light yoghurts available, they bring out some more! I like chocolate so I was very happy to see this vanilla yoghurt with chocolate sprinkles and picked one up to try it. It was so delicious that I have since eaten several (not in one go)!
I paid £0.54 for this in Sainsburys but they are cheaper if bought on offer at supermarkets like Morrisons and it is possible to get them for thirty something pence each!
I like the packaging of this yoghurt. It is in the familiar size and shape tub that Muller puts their yoghurts in. For those that don't know, the tub is flat on the bottom with sides that slope in from top to bottom. There is a silver foil lid. For this variety the lid has a rim of gold which I think makes it look like an extra special product. Of course, that is what they want their customers to think! So, was it an extra special product?
When I peeled the lid back the first thing I noticed was that there did not seem to be as much in this yoghurt pot as there normally is. The level of yoghurt was quite low which I found disappointing and in subsequent pots I have found the same.
The yoghurt does not seem to have a distinctive smell but smells generally 'yoghurty'! The smell is not strong or over powering.
The yoghurt is a grey/white colour. This sounds like a strange colour for a yoghurt. After all, most of them are slightly yellow but for this one I think it looks really nice. There are sprinkles of chocolate in the yoghurt. They are dark and there are a lot of them but they are very small so the first time I bought this yoghurt I wondered if I would be able to taste the chocolate in it.
I'm happy to report that I could taste the chocolate! The flavour is well balanced I think because both the vanilla and the chocolate flavours are apparent. They go well together as I had expected them to. The chocolate is quite rich and strong but the vanilla complements that by being a softer flavour. The yoghurt is a little bit sweet but it is not over powering.
I can taste the texture of the chocolate pieces despite the fact that they are so small but I don't like the texture very much because I think it is at odds with the smoothness that I expect from yoghurt and makes me question whether I should be chewing this!
I really enjoy the flavour of this yoghurt. It is very different to other varieties that Muller make and I think it is nice as a treat, especially with the warmer weather we are enjoying now. Despite the fact that I initially was not keen on the texture of the chocolate pieces, I have got used to them now and they are not a reason for me not to buy this product.
I recommend this to anyone who likes the Muller Light yoghurts and especially to those that also like chocolate and vanilla flavours.
Muller Light have just released a new flavour yoghurt, which I just have to share with you, as it is now my favourite flavour!
What is it?
It is Vanilla sprinkled with dark chocolate. It is new and not just a limited edition flavour which I was really pleased with after trying my first one.
How does it taste?
Lush! Ok, I will try and describe it a bit better than that for you! It tastes the same as the normal vanilla Muller light, however it has a different texture to it. It feels much more frothy in the mouth and does weigh less per pot than the normal vanilla yoghurt, it also has little specks of dark chocolate in it, which although do not give a really strong flavour, they do give a hint of chocolate.
With there being slightly less in a pot than normal some people may feel a bit cheated, however I often find eating a whole Muller light can be a bit much sometimes so this feels just enough to fill me up with out it starting to get sickly.
165g per pot, fat free, 86 calories per pot. This is a few calories less than the usual vanilla or any other flavour of Muller light yoghurt. No artificial colours or preservatives and the great news is, that it is syn free for those of us following the slimming world diet.
Price is the same as the rest of the range which can be as much as about 60p per pot or you can often find them on offer in the supermarkets at 4 for £2 or 10 for £2.50 etc. Always check out what deals are on, if like me, you have to go and buy a whole fridge full after trying one!
You will find these with all the other Muller Light yoghurts in the chilled section of your chosen super market/shop!
Would you recommend buying these?
Yes, yes, yes! If you like Muller light yoghurts then give it a go, the texture is a little different, slightly more of a mousse feel (but not quite stiff enough to be a mousse), so if you don't like the texture of mousse maybe avoid it! But other wise give it a go; you might find that it is something you just can't live without after trying it!
I've always been a fan of the Muller Light yoghurts and have always thought that the best thing about them is that they really don't taste like a light yogurt, they have always been deliciously creamy and sweet and they always seem to get it spot on with the flavours that they bring out.
Up until recently the Vanilla variety has always been my 'treat' flavour when I'm craving something sweet, this ususually happens mid afternoon when I need a bit of an indulgent and not too naughty boost. I love the friut varieties however when I saw the new 6 pack including 3 varietys each with dark chocolate I really couldn't wait to try them. Added bonus, when I purchased them from my local Tesco's this weekend they were on offer at half price at £1.47....an absolute steal!
Right on to the yogurt, the second one I tried was the Vanilla and Chocolate Flavour. I was really looking forward to trying this one as I absolutely love those flavours and I think that vanilla and dark chocolate is a delicious and indulgent combination. Upon opening the yoghurt I was greet with a fabulously creamy yoghury which was speckled with dark chocolate and I was hit with a truly delicious aroma.
Tastewise I was blown away, the vanilla yoghurt was creamy and indulgent and although although the sprinkles of dark chocolate don't look like very much, they do make a real impact on the flavour and they do give you that much needed chocolate fix.
It was fantastic suprise and finally I think I have found something that tastes really naughty and delicious...but it actually isn't. It gave me the sweet fix i needed and I will definately buy again.
