“ Brand: Muller Light. / Type: Yoghurts „
Whilst shopping in Morrisons at the weekend I notice that they had price reductions on the Muller Light and Muller Corners lines so I threw a few things in the trolley that I'd either not tried previously on hadn't had for a long time.
The yogurt comes in a plastic white & bluey/grey pot. The pot is covered with the usual foil lid with a picture of some blueberries on it. The pot tells us that it weighs 200g that there are 94 calories per pot, that it's fat free and that each pot will provide you with 31% of your Recommended Daily Amount of calcium.
The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Water, Wild Blueberries (8%), Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates, Stabilisers: Pectins, Sweetener: Aspartame

of which total sugars: 6.4g
sugars naturally from fruit and milk: 4.7g
(of which saturates): 0.1g
Allergy information: contains milk. contains a source of phenylalanine.
These desserts contain no artificial colours or preservatives.
On opening the pot I can see that the yogurt is sort of lilac colour and there there are darker speckles of purple within the yogurt. It all looks rather appetising. The consistency looks smooth and the yogurt looks reasonably thick.
This yogurt has a similar consistency to the Strawberry, Cherry and Raspberry & Cranberry flavours and is therefore not as thick as the Manadrin and Apricot flavours I would say, but, obviously, it's not runny either. There's a slight aroma to the yogurt but whether this is anything like blueberries I couldn't say as I've never actually tasted them as a fruit. The yogurt itself tastes very smooth and, as with most of the Muller Light range, slips down the throat very easily. There are small bits of fruit within the yogurt but these do not particularly require any chewing so even someone who hadn't put their false teeth in wouldn't have any problems with this product.
Tastewise, it's reasonably sweet and doesn't have the "edge" to it that the Mandarin and Raspberry & Cranberry flavours have. It's a smoother and fresher taste which is incredibly moreish without being oversweet.
At time of writing Morrisons have Muller Lights on offer for 25p
This yogurt is really yummy so it's difficult to know precisely where to rank it in terms of the other flavours in the range that I've tried so far. In fact, I'm going to sit on the fence and declare it my joint favourite with the cherry flavour as I really can't decide between them. Aside from the rather wonderful taste this yogurt will provide you with 31% 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.
Muller Lights in order of preference:-
01=) Wild Blueberry
03) Summer Berries
05) Peach and Pineapple
09) Raspberry and Cranberry
10) Smooth Banana and Custard
11) Smooth Toffee
Yoghurt is the perfect food for all times of the day. Whether its an accompaniment to your bowl of cereal or toast at breakfast, a mid morning treat, or a pudding for after a meal, it really is very versatile. One of my favourite brands of yoghurt are Muller and I am particularly fond of the Muller Light variety.
Muller Lights can be found in all Supermarkets including Asda and Tesco. They are often found in little shops such as Superdrug and Boots too as well as hospital and airport canteens and sometimes little newsagents or petrol stations. They can always be found in the fridges which is the perfect and really the only place for them to be stored.
One flavour in the range is the Wild Blueberry. The yoghurt comes in a 200g pot. Each pot costs 54p however there is currently an offer on where you can get 4 yoghurts for £2. This is only a saving of 16p but if you are being careful with your money then its definitely worth taking advantage of.
The pot is made of plastic with a foil lid. It is mainly white in colour however around the edges of the pot there is a nice purple blue colour theme with all the nutritional information and product information on it too. The lid Is like I said made of foil and is mainly white in colour. However to make it a bit more colourful and appealing there is some delicious and very juicy looking pictures of blueberries. I have to admit im not a huge fan of blueberries and don't eat them very often however the pictures on the lid did look really gorgeous!
Opening the lid is easy but I was sprayed slightly with yoghurt. There was only a little on the lid which was easily enough scraped into the pot. The yoghurt looked fairly thick which was good as often the light yoghurts are poor and runny. It didn't look overly creamy though and personally not very nice! The yoghurt was an unusual colour. It was a light purple colour mainly however it looked as though there were some bright purple streaks through it. Very odd Through the yoghurt there were visible little pieces of blueberry. This was a bit annoying for me as I'm not keen on bitty yoghurts. I would have preferred a bit free yoghurt!
After a little mix the yoghurt did thicken up quite a lot more however it still wasn't overly thick. The yoghurt had turned the one colour now, still a very unusual purple tinge to it. Spooning some up the first thing I detected was sharp taste. It tasted very much like blueberries but had an annoying and very weird after taste to it. It was also a very runny texture, much runnier than it looked. There was no creaminess to it all which wasn't good for me as I love creamy yoghurts. I found it very hard to finish the yoghurt as it just tasted plain odd!
Nutrition wise these are really great and a 200g pot contains a mere 94 calories. This is absolutely amazing considering some 125g pots contain the same if not more! It has an almost non existent fat content too which is just splendid.
These yoghurts go great on cereal or fruit and are even nicer when sprinkled with some crushed bran flakes or some meringue! Personally though I didn't enjoy the flavour at all and if you don't like blueberries I definitely wouldn't recommend it!!
I am eating a lot of yogurt at the moment so when I saw the Müller range on Buy 4 Get 4 Free offer in Morrisons I decided to stock up on the Müller Lights which I like because they are extremely low fat and are larger than other low fat yogurts so keep me feeling full for longer.
I was curious about the Wild Blueberry variety as I adore blueberries but find they don't always work well when used in other foods, I bought a pot to sample and honestly couldn't wait to dig in after I'd convinced myself to try it!
The yogurt itself is a vibrant purple colour and smells quite fruity, I can't say I can actually pick out blueberries in the aroma but it's definitely a general berry smell.
I was very surprised to find that this yogurt does taste of blueberries, it has the same rich and creamy taste as the other Müller yogurts in their range but underneath this there is a wonderful sweet flavour of blueberries. The whole yogurt is infused with the delicious flavour and as well as this there are plenty of large and small blueberry pieces in the pot. Some of them were large enough to be complete blueberries, but others were smaller chopped ones. The fruit had retained its lovely texture and one of the whole blueberries actually burst in my mouth in much the way a fresh berry would.
I really enjoyed this yogurt as I found it to be very refreshing and was ideal for taking the edge off my hunger while I was waiting for my dinner to cook. The fruitiness was wonderful in my opinion, as are all of the Müller Light yogurts, and the thick and creamy consistency of the yogurt itself makes it a real treat to eat.
The best thing about this yogurt for me is the fact that it is so low in calories and fat, while still keeping a delicious flavour and very moreish consistency. A 200g pot contains 94 calories and 0.2g of fat, which equates to just 1 1/2 Weight Watchers points if you are following this programme. A single pot of Müller Light Wild Blueberry will cost you 54p, but do look out for promotions as they are often on special offers in the major supermarkets.
I read a very interesting article on MSN a few days ago about different ways to boost your metabolism, and so help your weight loss. I am on a diet and am trying to lose weight, so I am keen to do all that I can that was mentioned in the article in order to help me with my goal. Along with some advice which I had already heard, such as sleep more, eat breakfast and so on, one piece of advice which was new to me grabbed my attention, and I decided to give it a go. This advice was to eat more dairy products. According to the article, a study published in the American Society for Nutritional Sciences Journal of Nutrition, women who consumed milk, yoghurt and cheese several times a day lost 70% more body fat than women who ate no dairy. This is apparently due to calcium and other substances found in dairy, and women can get the best benefits from these by eating dairy about three times a day. As someone who loves yoghurt and cheese but has been trying to cut down on these somewhat due to their calorie content, I was delighted to read this advice, and so the next time I went down to the student shop I treated myself to this yoghurt from Muller Light, thinking that this would be a treat that would even help me with my diet.
I bought this blueberry flavoured Muller Light yoghurt from Asda as part of a 4 for £2 deal, which is pretty good value when you consider that they cost 64p from my student shop, and that much unhealthier snacks such as chocolate or sweets cost almost as much as these without any of the benefits. This is something like the sixth flavour that I've tried so far (I reckon I'll review all of them one day), though I have to say that it's not my favourite. Unlike many other of the fruit flavoured yoghurts in the range, which actually taste like the real fruit, this yoghurt tastes more like blueberry flavoured sweets than the actual fruit. I don't really know why this is, as the yoghurt contains a hefty amount of wild blueberries (8% to be exact), which taste delicious themselves. Still, the taste of the yoghurt itself does taste very nice, just not as 'real' as I had hoped and expected.
Blueberries are said to be a superfood, which means that you're getting a good amount of nutrients and vitamins in this yoghurt along with 31% of your calcium RDA, making this a very healthy snack to have. At 94 calories and 0.2g fat per 200ml pot, it's not going to make you gain weight like other snacks would, and if you trust the findings of the study I mentioned earlier, eating this yoghurt along with two others three times a day will actually help you to lose weight. In short, this is a delicious snack which I will definitely buy again, although I do prefer the other low fat yoghurts in the Muller Light range.
We are still doing well with our healthy eating campaign and today we have tried yet another flavour of Muller Light yoghurt. As you probably know by now we make a pint of sugar free jelly each day and split it into four glass dishes poured over fruit. When it is time to eat the jellies we add a layer of Muller Light yoghurt on top of the jelly to make a kind of trifle.
The one that we tried today is the wild blueberry flavour. I had made raspberry jelly and poured it over frozen raspberries from Tesco's mixed with the last of the blackberries which we had picked last autumn and frozen. When the time came to eat our jellies the wild blueberry flavour seemed like an ideal accompaniment.
Each 200g pot of the blueberry flavour yoghurt has only 0.2g of fat and 94 calories and they are sweetened with aspartame, so they're ideal if you're on a diet.
The plastic pots are much wider than the 'standard' sized yoghurt pots which makes the removal of the yoghurt that much easier - until you get to the bottom that is! There is a ridge round the bottom of the pot and getting that last bit of yoghurt out is very difficult! Having said that I don't waste much - it's too nice for that!
The foil lid has a picture of blueberries on it - no surprises there then! The now familiar Muller logo is there in red and white with the word 'light' is in blue. The actual name of the flavour is also there but in very small lettering. Maybe the fact that it is light is more important!
You just peel off the foil lid, lick it of course, and there is the yoghurt just waiting to be eaten!
The yoghurt itself is a sort of creamy blue in colour with a faint aroma of blueberries.
So now we know how it is packed, what is looks like and how it smells - so what does it taste like?
Well the yoghurt is smooth, thick and creamy in texture and it tastes great! It isn't too sweet and retains the tangy flavour that you would expect from the berries. It tastes so rich and creamy that you feel as though you're eating something far naughtier than diet yoghurt!
As I have already said it is lovely with sugar free jelly but I also intend to buy some frozen blueberries when I next visit Tesco's and will try blueberries with wild blueberry yoghurt poured over them. I have heard that blueberries are good for the memory but I can't remember where I heard it! LOL!
The nutrition value of the pot of yoghurt is;
Of which sugars 12.8g
Sugars naturally from fruit 9.4g
The calcium in one pot amounts to 32% of the adult RDA (recommended daily allowance) of calcium.
I also used to like any of the flavours of Muller Light eaten with one of the crunchy cluster type breakfast cereals as a snack at any time of the day. This really is heavenly but I'm afraid it isn't an option whilst I am trying to loose weight!
These yoghurts currently retail at 54p each in Tesco's at full price but there is almost always a special offer of some sort on them. The offer at the moment is a good one as they are all half price at 27p each. We really took advantage this weekend and bought two trays full - 24 yoghurts in all! LOL! I do like a bargain!
The foil lid and plastic pot can both be recycled so that's another point in its favour as far as I am concerned.
Muller Yoghurts are made by Muller Dairy Limited of Shrewsbury Road, Market Drayton, Shropshire. TP9 3SQ and this is yet another flavour that I would recommend.
I tend to buy light yoghurt rather than full fat even when I am not on a diet because I think there is not much difference in taste or texture and full fat gives me extra calories that I do not need. Muller light is one of the more popular makes of reduced fat yoghurt. In fact, most yoghurts are now reduced fat, probably because so many people try to limit the number of calories they consume.
Yoghurt is pretty healthy and if you have live yoghurt then it really is very beneficial for your health. That is the downside of the muller light yoghurts. They are not live.
The Wild Blueberry yoghurt is really tasty. I love blueberries so jumped at the chance of trying this when I saw it on the supermarket shelf. The taste is great. It really does taste of natural blueberries (not sure about the wild bit - a blueberry is a blueberry isn't it?!) There is a pale purple blue colour to the yoghurt, caused by the fruit. This is because the fruit is more blended into the yoghurt than being dropped in. There are a few tiny pieces of fruit but not many. I like my yoghurt smooth so this is a good choice for me.
Muller Light pots come in 200g, which is bigger than many yoghurts and so more filling and more satisfying. At 50 pence they are pretty good value. They really fill you up and make a great alternative to an 11am chocolate bar when you are stuck in the office.
It's not often that I buy yoghurt and it is only on the odd occasion that I'll throw one into my supermarket shopping trolley. Many consider them to be a healthy option. Certainly I'm aware they are a healthier snack or dessert when compared to biscuits or cakes. As well as being a healthy alternative to sweet deserts after main meals, they are often promoted as a welcome change or an addition to cereal at breakfast. However, I've often thought that the health benefits are a little exaggerated for one cannot deny that they are essentially a food item originally derived from the excess waste of milk production. Muller Light are one of several brands that have become increasingly popular over recent years.
The yoghurt appears pleasant enough and has a light purple tone shade with only speckled fragments of fruit. It has a satisfying smooth creamy texture as you would expect. The creamy blend has just a hint of Blueberry, a fruit that in my opinion has very little taste on its own. Blueberries have been heavily marketed from America as a 'super food' rich in anti-oxidants. The growing popularity of Blueberry based foods owes more to this marketing propaganda than anything else. British Blackcurrants and strawberries contain just as many anti-oxidants and are just as beneficial and in my opinion far more tastier than blueberries. For me the manufacturers overdo with the added sweetener content making this yoghurt a little on the sweet side. Overall though one could still say this is a satisfying yoghurt blend although there's nothing much wild about it.
A 200g pot of yoghurt contains only 94 calories and very little fat or sugar. This is a very low fat yoghurt aimed at dieters no doubt. The main ingredients include; yoghurt, water, wild blueberries (8%), fructose, modified maize starch, gelatine, acidity regulators, sodium citrates, citric acid, stabilisers, pectins, flavourings and milk. Disappointingly the yoghurt contains Phenylalanine and the artificial chemical sweetener Aspartame that acts as a sweetener. This probably does far more damage to your body than sugar and it is a depressing fact that manufacturers continue to use it.
Price wise a Muller Light tub will cost you just under 50p.
This Mullerlight yoghurt sounded so nice I thought I would try it. I am always on the look out for healthier alternatives and this sounded ideal.
It is Wild Blueberry flavour this sounded like a very interesting and different flavour.
It is packaged in a white plastic pot with blue writing on the side. The foil lid has a picture of fresh blueberries along with the usual Muller red label. Eah pot contains 200g of the yoghurt.
When you first open the yoghurt there is a lovely fruity smell and it really does smell like blueberries. The yoghurt itself is very tasty. It is a creamy smooth consistency. It is a very attractive blue/purple colour. It has a sweet fruity taste. There is no after taste you can get with some yoghurts.
The Muller yoghurt really fills you up and for a long time and they are fat free. Each Mullerlight pot contains as much calcium as a 200ml glass of milk.
They do not contain any artificial colours or flavourings.
They are a perfect snack and are great if you are watching your weight because they only contain 94 calories per pot.
They also come in many other flavours. At the moment they have a limited edition out which is Lemon and passion fruit which is also delicious.
They cost about 42p and are available from supermarkets. They are often on special offer.
And here it is - the latest offering from Muller in their Mullerlight range - Wild Blueberry!
I am a huge fan of yoghurt and currently eat 3 - 4 in one day alone so choosing low fat, healthy varieties are important to me.
I haven't yet found a Mullerlight flavour that I do not like so I fully expected to enjoy the Wild Blueberry and I was not disappointed.
It is an exciting light purple colour and is packed with real blueberries (the yoghurt is 8% fruit) and it actually tastes like real blueberries and that is always a plus!
The yoghurt is virtually fat free, contains only 94 calories for a 200g pot and contain 32% of your daily recommended calcium allowence which is important for strong bones and teeth.
Unusually for a yoghurt, it has a decent fibre content (due to the real fruit in it) so it has digestive benefits too.
The only down side is that due to the sweeteners used it does, like all Mullerlights, tend to taste a bit too sweet but for those with a sweet tooth it should not be too much of a problem.
