“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurt „
I came across these by accident in Morrisons the other day and they were on offer - pack of 4 for £1. All supermarkets seem to have these on an introductory offer at the moment the normal retail price being £2.28.
As far as I can remember they only had one choice of flavours available that day. After further research I now know they are available in 5 different flavours although each pack contains 4 yogurts of the same flavour. The flavour I bought was Strawberry, Raspberry & Apple. The others available are:
Blackcurrant & Apple - Banana & Strawberry - Passionfruit, Orange & Apricot - Raspberry & Peach.
Given more choice I would probably have gone for the Strawberry & Banana option and I have since tried that flavour and will add a note at the end of this review.
The main packet has a white background and is a cardboard sleeve which is recyclable. This has the words One a Day printed on the top and one side. The other side contains blurb from the company and on the bottom is the nutritional information and ingredients info. The letter O of the word One is an image of a relevant fruit to the flavour. Inside the pack are four individual yogurts in cartons the same as fruit corners. For those unfamiliar with the brand this is one large triangle and one smaller that are joined diagonally.
In the main compartment is the yogurt which is labelled as Corner yogurt on the pack. Underneath this is some Strawberry Puree. In the smaller compartment there is a portion of raspberry & apple compote. The yogurt itself is white in colour and has the same creamy texture and taste as the yogurt in fruit corners. It has no particular flavour as such. I would describe it as plain yogurt. Its difficult to eat this on its own as directly underneath is the strawberry puree which seeps through. The puree is lovely and fruity and mixes into the yogurt to give a strawberry flavoured swirl through it and turns the yogurt pink. The fruit compartment has the compote which is like runny jam with small pieces of the raspberry and apple in it. It also has raspberry seedsand is a lovely appealing bright pink. The compote is very tart as you would expect from raspberries. Mixing it into the rest of the yogurt removes some of the tartness.

Overall this particular yogurts taste is a bit too much for me. This is totally due to the raspberry element as I am not overkeen. If you are a fan of raspberries and you like the original fruit corner yogurts then this I would definately recommend. I have now tried the Strawberry & Banana flavour and enjoyed this much more. This is very similar but with banana puree below the yogurt and a strawberry compote in the smaller compartment. This is purely my personal preference as I like bananas more than raspberries!
I found the amount to be quite satisfying and I am impressed that this would fulfill one portion of my fruit intake for a day.
The price as it stands on offer I believe to be great value but a little bit expensive at the regular retail price of £2.28.
The One a Day range is also available in drink form. Muller have numerous products available including Fruit Corners, Muller Light and Muller Rice. Ive tried numerous of their products over the years and have never been disatisfied with the quality and taste.
