      A very tasty, pretty healthy snack

      I absolutely love yoghurts and am always trying the new brands and flavours. Muller Light Vanilla, however, is one that I always like to purchase. It is full of flavour and low in calories which means that I can have one for breakfast, or lunch, or as a healthy snack or even as a pudding.

      The pot is a bit bigger than a lot of brands which means it takes you longer to eat, leaves you fuller and all with competitive nutritional content. The pot is ergonomically sound and the lid is removed easily, although occasionally it can fire yoghurt out as you initially open the lid - watch out for that!

      When it comes to the vanilla flavour, I think it's second to none (for what I've tested)! I wouldn't say it is substantially better than a lot of cheaper/similar products but for me, it is more enjoyable.

      I have recently downgraded to supermarket branded yoghurts as the cost of the Muller Light yoghurts can stack up when you are eating 2 a day minimum! However, I always keep an eye out to see if Muller Light yoghurts are on offer when I'm shopping and if they are I usually treat myself!

      A deliciously smooth yogurt

      Vanilla Muller Light yogurt

      Price:- I paid £5.00 for 2 packs of vanilla and toffee muller light yogurts from Asda. They were on offer ( I will also review the toffee ones)


      I absolutely love yogurts, I have one a day either as part of my lunch or after dinner as dessert. I would much rather have a yogurt than a packet of crisps or chocolate bar.

      This yogurt is very smooth and delicious. It's one of my favourites, I prefer smooth yogurts to ones that contain bits and muller light have always been a top favourite of mine. Each pot is 175g and FAT FREE, which makes this yogurt even better. I think that Everyone would enjoy this yogurt. You can also use this yogurt as a base taste and add fruit to it.

      Vanilla, is a flavour that I think everyone would life, it's quite basic and not overpowering at all. I do also think that Vanilla is quite a safe choice for a flavour but it's also one that I have loved for many years.

      Muller light yogurts come in a range of different flavours so whatever flavour you crave or love the most muller light are bound to find one of that effect or similar.

      The most versatile of the Muller Light range

      I was never really into yoghurt until I started going to Slimming World, preferring a high fat cheesecake as tasty treat mmm. However I knew if I was going successfully lose weight this would have to change and I started to choose Muller Light yoghurt's as a healthy alternative. The rest of the people in the class I attended all spoke very highly about them but I was a bit sceptical, after all how tasty could a fat free product really be? How good was this "Syn" free treat.

      I have to say all of the Muller Light range are very tasty and surprisingly thick and creamy especially as they are fat free. I have so far not found a flavour I don't like.

      I have chosen to review the vanilla flavour Muller Light as for me it is a very versatile product that is much more than just a yoghurt.As a yoghurt it has a very thick and creamy texture with a lovely authentic vanilla taste. I often find that vanilla flavoured products can be a be a bit too sweet but I feel that this has found the perfect balance.

      The best thing I find about the Vanilla variety of Muller Light is that it can be used as a great fat free alternative to milk, cream and custard. I always have some of this in the fridge as I use it on top of cereals, puddings and fruit. I had never before dreamed of warming up yoghurt but a few minutes in the microwave makes this a delicious alternative to custard.

      Muller Light usually costs about 50p a pot but you will usually find at east one of the big supermarkets are running a special offer at anyone time. This usually involves buying in bulk but as this yoghurt is so versatile you will find ways to use it without getting bored.

        A lovely tasting light yoghurt

        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 flavour as it is one of my favourite basic flavouring ingredients. Vanilla is usually a safe bet! These yoghurts come in individual plastic tubs with a peel off foil lid. Each yoghurt weighs in at 190 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 very nice to mix with other things such as fruit, for a more filling breakfast time meal. 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!

        The 190 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 almost a third 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.

        Ingredients: Yogurt, Water, Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Colour: Carotenes, Sweetener: Aspartame, Contains a source of phenylalanine.

        Typical nutritional values per 100g:

        Protein - 4.3g

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Not bad flavour, but there are better alternatives.

          Muller is one of my favourite brands when it comes to yogurts. They always seem to suggest that bit of quality with their products. Generally, I'm not someone who immediately grabs the healthy or low-calorie option when out shopping, but as you can never be too careful with fat and sugar, and the fact that they were on special offer, I thought that I would give this Muller Light Smooth Vanilla a try.

          These yogurts are made by Muller at their large factory in Market Drayton, Shropshire where they produce 80,000 pots of Muller Light every hour, 24 hours a day. They are quite a green company who pride themselves on the fact that they source over 90% of their milk within a 30 mile radius of the factory, thus keeping carbon emissions to a minimum and supporting their local farmers. This is another reason why I prefer Muller over other brands.

          The yogurt comes in a plastic pot with a foil lid. The lid is fairly easy to peel away, but be careful because sometimes it rips and then it can get a little messy to completely tear off. Both the lid and the plastic pot are recyclable, which will please the environmentally conscious among you. The pot is generally white and coloured to represent the yogurt flavour. The vanilla flavour uses a pale shade of yellow for its styling and brown for its lettering.

          The yogurt itself is reasonably thick and quite creamy and has a fairly light yellow colour. There are no artificial colours in this yogurt, so they must use natural colouring agents to achieve the smooth yellow appearance.

          Many reduced fat alternatives I've tried in the past have been quite watery and rather tasteless, but this one is quite satisfying. It has got a genuine vanilla flavour, but the ingredients don't include actual vanilla products so the taste must stem from either natural or artificial flavours. Overall the taste is fairly pleasant, but not inspiring. Actually, I would go so far as to say it's a bit dull. I find that it isn't as satisfying as the fruit flavours such as strawberry and cherry with their genuine flavours and real fruit pieces.

          As this snack is aimed at the health conscious I had better quote some of the nutritional information to let you know exactly what you're getting. Each 190g pot contains the following:

          Energy: 403kJ (95kcal)
          Protein: 8.2g
          Carbohydrate: 13.9g
          Of which sugars: 12.9g
          Natural sugars: 8.4g
          Fat: 0.2g
          Of which saturates: 0.2g
          Fibre: TRACE
          Sodium: 0.2g
          Calcium: 257mg

          As you can see this is virtually a fat free snack, low in calories and very rich in calcium; providing you with 32% of the recommended daily amount. It doesn't contain any artificial colours or preservatives. But, for those concerned, it does contain milk, aspartame, gelatine and a source of phenylalanine. Therefore it isn't suitable for vegans or vegetarians, but is ok for coeliacs.

          The yogurt comes in a 190g pot which I suppose is an adequate size portion for the average person. For me, it never quite feels enough, but it certainly fills a small hole. It's great at any time of day. I've eaten them at breakfast, lunch, dinner and even supper. I even have them as a snack mid-morning or afternoon.

          There are numerous other flavours in the range, so if vanilla doesn't quite tickle your fancy then maybe one of the others will. I have already reviewed several other flavours and the remainder I will cover in due course.

          Muller Light yogurts can be purchased individually or in packs of six. The normal retail price for an individual pot is just over 50p which I think is extremely expensive. I usually only purchase them if they are on special offer. For example they have recently been sold in Sainsbury's at 4 for £1 which is much more reasonable. Often the six packs can be on offer at two packs for £5 which works out at about 42p per pot, which is still too expensive for a dollop of yogurt.

          These yogurts are widely available in just about every supermarket; large or small. Just head over to the fridge section.

          Because of the health benefits Muller Light is a good choice of yogurt; it's fat free and low in calories. However, if you're also after great taste then personally I would stick to the traditional fruit flavours like strawberry, cherry and mandarin. Vanilla is ok, but it's just a bit plain and dull.

            Yummy And Refreshing!

            I fancied a yogurt big time today but we hadn't got any in the fridge so I went to the shop by me and was NEARLY disappointed again because he'd only got 2 pots of yogurt in HIS fridge and they were both vanilla flavoured Muller Light. I nearly left them because he's a majorly expensive shop and wanted 62p a yogurt, but then my belly rumbled and I decided to buy them..... and mutter about the price as I walked out! lol

            The pot is quite big, I think it's a 150g pot and it was dead filling. I think there was something like 100 calories in it and for that sized pot that's not bad.

            The yogurt is smooth and creamy, you'd never think it was a diet yogurt if you hadn't seen it on the pot because it's got a yummy sweet flavour and the vanilla makes it taste delish. The ONLY flavour in this yogurt is vanilla and it's a lovely taste I think, sometimes vanilla can be a bit dodgy when it's added to diet foods because the sweetness of it doesn't always go that well with whatever else is on the ingredients list. It's perfect in this yogurt though and the vanilla taste gives it a very refreshing feel as you eat it.

            A good thing about this yogurt and all the Muller Light ones is that they are so cool and creamy that they're brilliant in the hot weather. This vanilla flavour is like eating a melted ice cream and it's even better with a chocolate digestive crushed up and sprinkled over the top..... but if you're going to do that I don't know why you bothered buying a low fat and calorie yogurt in the first place! lol

            Over all I think this is a yummy yogurt and whether your dieting or not it's mega tasty and something nice and light to munch on when the weather is too hot for anything stodgy.

            Recommended..... but not for 62p a pot!!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A 'nice' yoghurt that's a bit vanilla boring really... It's just lacking in inspiration that's all.

            Muller Light Yoghurt isn't something I'd normally buy for myself or my family. It's not that I don't like it particularly, it's that I've always thought of it as rather expensive for what it is, and there are better tasting yoghurts out there for the same sort of money.

            Having said all the above, I do think that when you bear in mind that this is a Light version and is therefore low fat, this brand does manage to create something worth eating that's not completely runny and tasteless which lots of diet products are.

            Now, I didn't actually buy this. A friend of mine gave several to me because she is dairy intolerant herself and her daughter who she'd got these for didn't like them, and rather than have them go to waste she thought to pass them on. What this means for the purpose of this review is that I've had to look the price etc. It doesn't mean I've not tried them however - I have.

            These are quite large pots of yoghurt for one sitting. Most I find are around 120g up to around 150g with some even smaller, but this is a generous 190g tub. Tesco list it as 52p which really when you think of the size is not as bad as I'd thought it was, so I'm a little surprised there to be honest. The pot is kind of different in shape from most yoghurt pots. It's more like an upside down bell shape than a plain yoghurt pot. Much wider at the rim which I guess is how they can fit all that extra yoghurt in there.

            I have to say looking at the nutritional info I'm surprised. This IS very low fat - 0.1g per 100g of product. However, it's not particularly low in calories at 211 for the same quantity so it's a bit of a deception there in terms of whether it's healthy or not. It means that for your 190g of yoghurt you're actually eating over 400calories which I personally think is quite high for a product that's branded as light.

            The yoghurt itself is pale yellow colour, it's not so runny that it's hard to spoon it up, but it's not as thick as I'd personally like it to be, and you certainly couldn't stand a spoon up in it or anything. The vanilla flavour is quite pleasant, but I do find this is a little over sweet really. It's not bland like a plain yoghurt can be, but there's no tang to it, and it does taste rather artificial to me somehow. I prefer my yoghurts to be flavoured with things like fruit I think, but vanilla isn't bad, and as I went through the pot I did actually find that the flavour grows on me slightly.

            I think this is one of those yoghurts that would appeal most to people who are looking to use it to replace a sweet desert with rather than someone who's actually wanting to eat a yoghurt. It's the combination of being quite sweet and vanilla flavour with no fruit or anything in it that makes me say this. Possibly something that would also appeal to kids I guess for similar reasons although I think I'd rather give a child a yoghurt with a bit of substance but that's just me perhaps.

            Overall, this isn't bad. It's consistency is ok, as is it's flavour. It's just a bit... well 'ok' and 'not bad' and 'pleasant' are the terms that are coming to mind and all of them are just middle of the road reasonable rather than having anything inspiring about them aren't they. I think that actually sums this up quite well. It's middle of the road reasonable yoghurt. It's not got any wow factor to lift it out there and make you really feel the need to buy it, and I suspect that most people who are buying it are those on a low fat diet rather than those who are counting calories or eating sensibly. Or perhaps just those who like mild and gentle tasting fruitless yoghurts.

            *Edit - It's been pointed out to me that I'd mis-read the calories... and gave the figure for kj not kcal (I don't see why we need both on packaging but there we go). The actual figure for kcal (calories) is 50 - my apologies for that, and thanks to best deal hunter for pointing it out!

              good quality food

              I always try to eat healthy food and to keep a reasonable weight for my age as I am getting much older now and have to watch what I eat a little bit more as a lot of people do.

              I always love these yoghurts as I find them very filling and delicious, they are a very good brand of food and excellent value for money.

              I saw these on offer yesterday at Sainsbury's and they were 8 for £2, which is absolutely a brilliant price as it is only 25p per pot and the usual price is 59p.

              It comes in a nice little plastic pot of 190g and has a pull off, foil lid, inside it is a soft and light yoghurt, that is quite thick and not runny, it has a nice texture and tastes delicious, the vanilla flavour is quite strong and nice and smooth to eat.

              It is a very good for diets and is very rich in calcium, there are no artificial preservatives or colours and is fat free.

              Each pot contains 95 calories and considering it is fat free it is very good for healthy eating.

              Per 100g it also contains 4.3g protein, 7.3g carbohydrate, 0.1g sodium and a trace of fibre.

              It is nice as a desert or just as a snack and I place some fresh fruit in a bowl and pour over the yoghurt and it is very filling and my hubby always sprinkles half a chocolate flake into his as he loves the mixture of them both together.

              The flavour is very strong and you can clearly taste the Vanilla.

              The texture is very smooth, creamy and light and of a very high quality.

              I buy most of the flavours with this brand but my favourite is the Vanilla.

              I usually buy these when they are on offer as I save so much money for a branded product and it saves me lots of money.

              I recommend this one for anyone to give it a try and see if you like them as much as I do.

              Look out for the special offers as they are available quite a lot.

              I give it 5 stars.

              Thank you for reading my review.

                great product for all the family

                I really like this product, some may find the vanilla flavour bland but personally this is what I like most about it.

                I first started buying this product when I was dieting, as each pot only contains 100 calories, it was a satisfying low calorie snack.

                The vanilla is quite strong and almost tastes slightly like banana, the texture is smooth and creamy. I personally do not like bits in my yoghurts, which is one of the reasons I find this product so appealing.

                If in a rush I usually have one of these for breakfast and as silly as it may sound, it does satisfy my hunger and keeps me going till lunch time. They are also great for desserts and make a great addition to your lunch.

                You can buy this product singly for approximately 53p but most of the major supermarkets such as Asda, Morrisons, Tesco etc usually have great offers on them for example 5 for £1.

                Nutritional Information per 100g

                Ingredients: Yoghurt, Water, Fructose, Modified Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Colour: Carotenes; Sweetner: Aspartame. Conatins milk and a source of Phenylalanine.

                This product is also great for kids my son loves them, it is a product suitable for all the family for any occasion.

                  Its OK but not the best

                  WHilst my daughter currently tucks into her pudding of Vienetta ice cream, Im trying to be very good and have opted for a Vanilla Muller light Yoghurt.

                  I have a fridge stocked up at the moment as on a trip to Asda last week all the Muller range were on offer for 20p. It was fairly late in the day and alot of the shelves were clear, particularly on the Muller corner range but I managed to dig out a few of these. I believe that they usually cost around 54p or so or a cheaper if purchased as a multi pack.

                  The 200g pot gives a generous portion. On peeling back the foil lid I was met by a custard yellow thick yoghurt. THe consistency was excellent but Iwas a little disappointed with the flavour. Not overly vanillary and with a slight aftertaste of sweetners Im afraid that Im comparing it to my favourite M & S low fat vanilla yoghurt which is cramy white in colour with black specks of vanilla throughout ...

                  The fat free yoghurt contains 100 calories, 8.6g protein, 14.4g carbohydrates, o.2g fat and a trace of fibre.
                  The ingredients include sugar, sweetner, water, fructose, gelatine, flavourings, carotenes, colours, pectins, citric acid ... In fact its perhaps best not to look at the long list and try and think of it as a fat free treat.

                  I think that Im going to use the other two pots in the fridge to pour over fresh fruit or my cereal as Im sure that they will taste better used in this manner.

                  Now - give me a slice of that Vienetta !

                    Well worth trying

                    Muller Light Vanilla Yoghurt

                    A 200g tub of this yogurt cost me £0.40 from my local shop. It is available in most supermarkets and comes in a light yellow pot with a blue lid and the Muller logo on the top.

                    This yogurt is practically fat free which is what inspired me to buy it (trying to be healthy in the run up to Christmas!). I have only tried a couple of brands of vanilla yogurt before and thought they were a little too sweet but there wasn't much choice on the shelf so I chose this one.


                    Ingredients as follows;

                    Yogurt, Water, Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Colours: Carotenes, Curcumin; Stabilisers: Pectins, Sweetener: Aspartame, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates

                    Nutritional Information (per 100g) as follows;

                    Energy kJ: 211kJ
                    kcal: 450kcal
                    Protein: 4.3g
                    Carbohydrate: 7.2g
                    of which total sugars: 6.8g
                    sugars naturally from fruit and milk: 4.4g
                    Fat: 0.1g
                    (of which saturates): 0.1g
                    Fibre: Trace
                    Sodium: 0.1g
                    Calcium: 135mg


                    It is quite appetising looking, it is really creamy, smooth and thicker than I had expected. It didn't really smell of vanilla, more of just yogurt. The consistency was really smooth, which was great, and the vanilla flavour a lot more subtle than I had expected, because it wasn't too strong, it wasn't sickly and actually quite nice. I dipped sliced apples into it and it went really well, because the yogurt wasn't too sweet.

                    Having said all that, I am not sure if without the apple, it might have been a bit too boring and bland to eat a whole one. I have tried other Muller fruit flavours which have been much better (cherry and strawberry) so will probably get them before this one. If I wanted something tasty and healthy to accompany fruit, or a desert though, this would definitely be something that would go well.

                    4 stars from me, and top marks for being so healthy!

                      Disadvantages

                      Muller Light Vanilla

                      Yesterday I tried the Muller Light Toffee flavour for the first time. Today I'm road testing Vanilla.


                      Packaging:

                      The yogurt comes in a plastic white & pale yellow pot. The pot is covered with the usual foil lid with a picture of what is presumably orchids on it. The pot tells us that it weighs 200g that there are 100 calories per pot, that it's fat free and that each pot will provide you with 33% of your Recommended Daily Amount of calcium.


                      The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Water, Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Colours: Carotenes, Curcumin; Stabilisers: Pectins, Sweetener: Aspartame, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates


                      Nutritional Information per 100g

                      Energy kJ: 211kJ
                      kcal: 450kcal
                      Protein: 4.3g
                      Carbohydrate: 7.2g
                      of which total sugars: 6.8g
                      sugars naturally from fruit and milk: 4.4g
                      Fat: 0.1g
                      (of which saturates): 0.1g
                      Fibre: Trace
                      Sodium: 0.1g
                      Calcium: 135mg

                      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 pale yellow colour. It looks more appetising than the toffee flavour that I tried yesterday and there don't appear to be any bits in it.


                      Taste:

                      This yogurt is fairly similar in consistency to the Toffee flavour that I tasted yesterday. Like that, it's fairly thick and has no bits in it whatsoever. The yogurt itself tastes very smooth and, as with most of the Muller Light range, slips down the throat very easily. Tastewise, it's quite sweet and the hint of vanilla makes it rather pleasant rather than it being bland. I don't think anyone would say that it's too strongly flavoured ~ the only possible issues you might have with this are that you might think it's too sweet or not sweet enough.


                      Price:

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


                      Opinion:

                      I think "pleasant" is probably the best word to describe this yogurt. It's not got enough flavour to send it into the "moreish" range but it's not tart or sour enough to make anyone dislike it either. So, it's what I'd call a mid-range yogurt, one I can quite happily eat but not something I'd choose to buy on a regular basis because I really, really enjoy it.
                      On the calcium front this yogurt does better than a number of other Muller Light flavours as it provides you with 33% of your RDA of calcium. Like the rest of the range, it's 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. But at least there's no sign of acesulfame K which some people view as a possible carcinogenic.


                      Muller Lights in order of preference:-

                      01=) Cherry
                      01=) Wild Blueberry
                      03) Summer Berries
                      04) Strawberry
                      05) Peach and Pineapple
                      06) Apricot
                      07) Rhubarb
                      08) Mandarin
                      09) Raspberry and Cranberry
                      10) Smooth Banana and Custard
                      11) Smooth Toffee

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        x

                        I've always been a big fan of yogurts, whether its a plain fruit yogurt, a "bitty" fruit yogurt (though these are my lease favourite), a chocolate yogurt, a desert yogurt, a mousse, and so on (I think you'll be beggining to get the idea now)- I've always loved them, and I cant go two or three days without consuming them. Whenever I see the word _NEW_ plastered over the front of a pot, I just HAVE to try it and plop it in to my trolley, usually much to my mums dissapointment. (She still pays for our shopping, you see).

                        Afew weeks back, wandering around my local Asda, I arrived at the glorious, yogurt aisle. I plodded over to the shelfs wondering where to begin. I three a pack of chocolate mousses and a multipack of crunch corners into the trolley, and that was when my eyes caught a large red sign, promoting an offer. This particular offer was on Muller Lights. On the red plastic sign it stated _5 Muller Lights for£1_. What a bargain I thought, and so, deciding I would like them, placed 15 (yes fifteen yogurts for £3), in to our trolley.

                        Muller is a major company, who came over to the UK in 1986. Muller are the creaters of a large amount of Dairy products, mainly yogurts. One of the ranges are Muller corners, producing flavours such as _Strawberry, Peach & Aprict, Banana Choco flakes, toffee hoops_ and many more. Mullerrice are also among the kinds that Muller make. These come in more unusal flavours, for example _Apple and Caramel_.
                        Perhaps Muller most well known products however, and the much adored Muller lights. These come in many many flavours; _Rhubarb, Apricot, Smooth peach, smooth toffee, smooth vanilla, smooth raspberry and cranberry, blueberry, mandarin and strawberry, along with afew others._

                        In Asda I picked up one of each flavour, and two of a couple I thought I'd like. The use-by dates on the yogurts were all for round about two weeks after I had purchased. I just hoped Id be able to polish off fifteen yogurts in fourteen days, however I later realised this would be no problem.

                        The next afternoon, it was time for an afternoon snack. I had picked myself a cereal bar, however I needed something else to go with that and my apple juice, so I went the fridge, and thats when I remembered, A muller light. But where to start? Which one to choose? It was an extremely difficult descision, however, my eyes immediatly darted to the plain white pot. The Vanilla! I retrieved it from the fridge and settled down at the table read to tuck in. I plucked the foil lid off the 200g pot. The lid had a thick coating of yogurt sticking to it so with my teaspoon I pressed all the yogurt back into the pot.

                        The yogurt looked very thick and creamy, and inside the 200g pot was a rather large-looking volume of yellow-white yogurt. I was half expecting the yogurt to be pure white, with the little black specks of vanilla pod in them, but I was entirely wrong. Just to make sure, it wouldnt be watery in any way, shape or form, I stirred the yogurt round, and I was proved right yet again. The yogurt seemed very thick and I couldnt wait to tuck in.

                        I dunked in my spoon and scooped up a teaspoon of vanilla yogurt. It looked glorious sitting there on the spoon, but the true test was in the taste. I was a bit weary of trying this, because it was a "low fat" product, I was somewhat sceptical of what it would taste like! I truly hoped it wouldnt be flat and lacked flavour. I pushed the spoon into my mouth and took the yogurt of the spoon.
                        The taste was lovely. A very vanilla-ish taste and extremely creamy. After three or four spoonfuls, I recognized a sweet taste to the yogurt too, complementing the creamy-ness beautifully.
                        I was getting quite annoyed however, the taste reminded me of something but I couldnt quite put my finger on it. It was only on my last few spoonfuls, I recognised it as being extremely similar to the vanilla yogurt, that is in the Muller fruit corners, with the strawberry and cherry compots.
                        Once I had finished the pot (the rather large pot), I was left feeling very full, and my tummy did feel really heavy. However the heavy feeling passed after ten minutes, and a pleasently satisfied feeling was left in my tummy.

                        Now, I'd heard alot about Muller Lights being low in calories and extraordinarly low in fat, yet before I had tucked in, I had forgotten to look at the nutrition clearly stated on the side of the pot.
                        Each muller light ranges between 90-110 calories, for a 200g pot yogurt (bigger than standard size), this is a brilliant calorie content, and I have heard they are only worth half points on the weight watchers diet, and on some diets they are "free-foods", which means these can be eaten in however large quantitys they are desired. The one thing I was a bit miffed about, is that these are stated to be FAT FREE, however looking at the fat content on the _side_ of the pot, I am told it contains 0.1g of fat. However that will still not ruin ones diet.

                        Obviously these yogurts contain milk, so are unsuitable for some vegetarians, and people who are lactose intolerant etc. Although this is probably common sense. The list of ingrediants tell us that the vanilla muller light contains; _Yogurt, Water, Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Colours (carotenes, Curcumin), Stabilisers (pectins), Sweetener (aspartame), Acidity Regulators (citric Acid, Sodium Citrate), Cuture (bifidobacterium Sp.), Vitamins E, B1, B2, B6._ I was a bit worried when I saw Aspartame on the list, as there has been some bad press on it, it worried me slightly, however I dont think I'll let this put me off.

                        Overall I really enjoyed this yogurt, and if I had been blindfolded, I really dont think I would have been able to tell it was a healthy living yogurt as it was so sweet and creamy. I have now tried almost every flavour in the muller light range and the vanilla is definitly in my top five!
                        Unfortionatly however, the offer 5 for £1, and the offer now stands at 4 for £2. Which I suppose is an ok offer, however each yogurt retails at around 54p indivually so you will only be making a saving of 24p.

                        5 Sense summary.
                        *Sound- none
                        *Sight- yellowish creamy, thick looking yogurt
                        *touch- runny but quite thick
                        *Smell- sweet
                        *Taste- strong vanilla taste, creamy yet pleasently sweet.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Very nice

                        Muller Lights are a well known brand of yoghurt and you certainly wont be dissapointed by the quality-or the quantity for that matter! They are virtually fat free which is fantastic if you are on a diet but they do contain a number of sweetners which may be something to be aware of.

                        Muller Light yoghurts are available in all supermarkets and most smaller stores. In my local tescos a pot sells for 53p but they are often on multibuy offers such as 3 for £1, which they currently are.

                        The vanilla version contains 33% of your recommended daily amount of calcium which is fab and they are free from artificial colours, preservatives and nuts so you can happily give them to the kids too. A 200g pot contains 100 calories and 0.2g of fat. A pot is classed as free food on the slimming world programme and counts as 1.5 points on weight watchers.

                        I'm not usually one for plain yoghurts but I am very impressed with muller light, especially the vanilla flavour. The pots are sturdy meaning you can pop them in your bag without worrying about them breaking and they are of a large size (200g) meaning they are likely to fill you up. The yoghurt is thick, creamy and smooth and a very nice creamy colour. The aroma of the yoghurt has a hint of vanilla but is not overpowering. They taste divine, different to the vanilla yoghurt included in the fruit corners, these are a lot more thick and creamy. They have a distinguished vanilla taste but this is not too strong or too week.

                        I will certainly be buying these again due to the amazing quality and taste of these yogurts, everyone in my family enjoys them including my niece so they are a brilliant treat for the whole family!

                        Highly recommended 5/5

                          Advantages

                          Disadvantages

                          the best tasting, most versatile yogurt you can buy

                          There are so many great things about this yogurt that it's difficult to know where to begin.
                          Here are the pro's
                          1. It's fat free, which is great if you are counting the calories (and you don't have to feel guilty about having a pudding)
                          2. It comes in a humungus 200g pot, so it's bigger than most other yogurts
                          3. The use by date is usually at least a couple of weeks after you but it
                          4.It is part of a large range of flavours (and I haven't found one yet that I don't like!)
                          5.They are very often on special offer, so you can stock up on them. (usual price is around 54p each)
                          6. It is thick, creamy and a very appealing lemony colour - you just want to dive straight in.
                          7.The taste is a smooth vanilla - and a real vanilla taste not the sicky manufactured taste you get with some puds.
                          8. It is scrummy on museli and fruit for breakfast too.
                          9. An added bonus is that you can heat it in the microwave for between 30 seconds - 2minutes (depending on the strength of your microwave) and then it becomes a delicious custard that you can eat by itself or add to oher puddings. It is great served hot with sliced bananas.
                          The cons,
                          1.It is so lovely that everyone will want it.
