“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurt „
University is often a little hectic - sometimes the luxury of having time to eat breakfast is non-exist (because like most students, I would rather sleep for an extra 10 - 15 minutes), and also during lunch: because I'm often, ahem, sprinting like an athlete to the other side of the university for another lecture. Muller Rice pots make both excellent quick or full breakfasts, and a light lunch. They are also a lovely, satisfying snack when you're feeling peckish. Not only are they filling, but the versatility of having the rice pudding in sturdy pots in which you can simply tear off the 'lid', eat hot or cold and simply eat with a spoon, make them ideal for busy people. If you fancy behaving like the stereotyped Neanderthal, just tip the contents of the pot into your mouth and enjoy like some students - no spoon required.
In every flavour of the pots, including that of strawberry, you get decent a sized portion of 190 grams of rice pudding and sauce. Some of the nutrition content per 100g includes:
- Energy: 107kcal
- Fat: 2.3g
- of which saturates: 1.3g
You can see they're surprisingly low in calories too at just over 200 calories per pot. The instructions state that you can enjoy it hot or cold - I think they taste delicious at either temperature, but I consume mine cold most of the time. The texture itself is like traditional rice pudding: you can feel and taste the soft, plumped up grains of the rice and the runnier (strawberry) sauce. It tastes wonderfully creamy and fruity (real fruits are used but unfortunately it doesn't count as 1 of your 5 a day. Sad, I know). The strawberry sauce in this is not lumpy, but smooth, rather like a coulis - I find that this can sometimes be a little too sweet as a result of the added sugar to this component of the pudding. I'm particularly a fan of the original Muller Rice Pudding which comes in a blue colour co-ordinated pot. You can add your own fruits to this, a Linwood's mix if you're being extra healthy, some honey or chocolate etc, and just personalise it for yourself. They range from around 55 - 65p from what I have seen, but I know that they have sometimes been on offer at 5 five for £2 so the cost of each pot is reduced.
I have to admit that before a little time before now, I hadn't tried these! Not because I don't like the sound of them it is because I am the only person in the family to want to try them, as my family prefer to eat yoghurts as I do normally. However while my Dad was out shopping he found am Muller rice strawberry pot at a very cheap price of £0.10- I therefore accepted to trying one.
Taste; I ate mine cold. I was very impressed with the pudding. The rice pudding was very creamy. The rice was also very soft. I found the strawberry "puree" to be sweet, but without being sickly. It was a very nice addition to the pudding itself. It was also nice that the combination of two flavours did not cancel out each other- as neither were to over powering to do this.
Smell; My first impressions of the rice pudding were good as it smelt very fruity and quite sweet which is probably because I could also detect a smell rather like condensed milk.
Packaging; I was pleasantly surprised to find a high quantity of "pudding" considering that that was meant to be a "low fat" product. The quantity of rice pudding was 190 grams. The container, holding the rice pudding was a plastic pot, like you would find one containing yoghurt. The label on the plastic pot was coloured, blue, white, *red and green (*as a strawberry). I was surprised to find that you could consume this pudding ethier hot or cold.
Product Quality; I think the quality of this dessert is high. The rice pudding was very soft and creamy. I was pleased to find Strawberry pips in the fruity, flavoursome sauce- as it seemed more natural to have this rather than the strawberry sauce to be completely smooth as it would of tasted more processed.
Value For Money; You can get these Strawberry Rice puddings individually or in multipacks of 6 (In 95g or 190g pots) Although I got my Muller Rice a bit cheaper this time (at £0.10 for 1 unit) they normally sell for £0.60 per pot. Waitrose however are currently selling them at half price for individual pots at £0.30 each. Sainsbury's are selling the multipack of 6(190gram pots) for just £2.00, instead of £3.28. I felt that the full price of these is a little expensive- however on offer, they give good value for money.
Verdict; A tasty dessert or snack, if a little pricey, if not found on offer.

I eat an awful lot of yogurts as I simply love them however the other day I spotted these Muller rice pots in a variety of flavours and decided at long last to give them a go.
The plastic pot holds 190g of the rice and is white and red in colour with a photograph of strawberries on the foil pull off lid to the top of it along with being told that it is Muller Strawberry Rice (and that is around the actual pot too). On the back of the pot other information listed includes ingredients and heating instructions (this can be eaten hot or cold by the way), the weight is stated along with a nutritional chart and contact details for Muller Dairy are given. Its a nice quality and informative pot and a handy round shape!
The Muller Rice Itself:
Well of course this is strawberry flavour so what you get is lots of moist creamy coloured and well cooked rice with some light red strawberry sauce with seeds within in which appears like a runny jam would.
The rice smells creamy and naturally sweet and all you have to do is give it a good stir to make sure that the strawberry sauce is blended with the rice and then eat it of course and to be honest I prefer this cold!
The rice is a pudding really and it tastes like it is mixed with a none lumpy sticky jam and tastes superb. I like the way that this isn't sloppy to eat and tastes great equally both hot or cold. To heat it up all you do is rip the lid off this and warm it in the microwave for about 70 seconds.
I think this is a wonderfully, naturally sweet and creamy rice pudding and I like the strawberry sauce added however do find the seeds a little tough and to get stuck into my teeth! Its a little filling, stave's off sweet cravings and although there are no fleshy pieces of juicy strawberries within it, it is pleasant and I would buy this again in the future.
Nutritional Information Per 100g (The Important Bits):

Available in all good supermarkets etc costing about 54p a pot.
These Muller Rice pots are an excellent dessert or snack. They can sit in the fridge for a week or two, come individually served, don't create mess, come in several flavours and can be eaten hot or cold.
I really liked the Muller Strawberry yoghurt and decided to see if their rice products are equally good. Each pot comes in a plastic tub with a rip-off foil lid. You can microwave it in about one minute or eat it cold.
There is 190g in a pot and it is about 200 calories, twice that of the similar flavour yoghurt but with the cream it isn't that surprising. The pots are 54p each and 4 for £2 in Sainsburys and I think, though I totally could be wrong that I saw them 8 for £2 in Tesco.
I have tried these cold and they are okay but warmed up for a minute is preferable. They are very thick and creamy with a generous portion of liquid jam, this tends to sink to the bottom so on first thought, you might think they're being stingy, but giving it a good stir brings all the jam up to the surface. This is particularly nice in my lunch box on a cold day and what's more is very filling as it is rice based so a good afternoon snack too.
I have finally loosened up the purse strings, as my children have been complaining about the lack of good snacks in our house. Over the last few weeks I have started to buy in puddings, but I have been trying to pick up ones on special offer. This week it is the turn of Muller Rice Pots!
I do really enjoy these rice pots and used to buy them on a regular basis. As my food bill rose to scary heights though, I cut back and these were one of the treats that disappeared from my shopping list.
Muller Rice come in plastic pots, wth a foil lid. They come in a variety of colours, depending on the contents and the one I chose contained strawberries. This pot was therefore in red and white with a close-up shot of strawberries and creamy rice.
Peeling back the foil, the first thing you notice is the sweet creamy smell of the rice, which is instanstly recogniseable. You can also smell the strawberry, but this is more subtle. This snack does look very appetising, as the pieces of strawberry and sauce are swirled into the rice, which adds to the attraction.
I like to scoop up some rice and strawberry together, as it tastes even nicer when these flavours are mixed together. The rice is very thick, rich and creamy and although lovely on it's own, can be a little boring after a few spoonfuls. It is very soft and requires no effort to eat, so is great if you are feeling under the weather or in need of comfort food. The chunks of strawberry are small, but full of flavour. They are also quite soft but still add a little bite to the snack. There is also a syrupy strawberry sauce, which is deliciously sweet and adds lots of lovely flavour to the rice.
This snack can be heated in the microwave, if you fancy it warm. I personally prefer mine cold, straight from the fridge.

Muller Rice 190g Pots are available from Tesco for 52p but are on special until 29th June at 8 for £2, which is a brilliant offer.
I would definitely recommend these and advise anyone who enjoys them to snap them up at this price!
I was very happy when I started to see this product advertised especially because I don't like yogurt, as soon as a I saw it I thought finally a fridge snack for me! and to top it off it is actually quite healthy.
The strawberry flavor was the first one I tried but it does come in a range of flavors including apple, raspberry, original and blueberry I think I also recently saw a toffee flavor which I am yet to try.
The rice pudding comes in a handy pot which means you can put these in packed lunches or take them to work as a snack. They can be eaten cold or hot and the container once the cover is removed is safe to place directly in the microwave personally I prefer them cold unless it is freezing outside.
The strawberry flavor is my favorite and it is basically regular rice pudding with a strawberry syrup to mix in with it. it tastes great and it definitely comes in handy to fill those gaps where I otherwise would have reached for a chocolate bar!
price wise it is quite reasonable at about 55p-65p per pot, however you get more for your money if you buy in a supermarket because there will usually be an offer where you can get them like 4 for £2 and in this case you can buy a variety of flavors. They now also come in a multipack with 6 pots in each pack, again this provides value for money but you are restricted on flavor choices as the strawberry comes with original flavor and you have to like both to make it worth your while. since I like them all it makes no difference to me!
I have recently attempted to start eating healthier food, but I often find it difficult to choose healthy lunchtime items and I end up resorting to sandwiches and crisps all too often. However today I decided to have a good look around my local Sainsbury's and I chose a Strawberry Muller Rice to eat as a desert, because I thought it would make a pleasant change.
********** Packaging and availability ************
I have seen Muller Rice available in most of the major supermarkets, they can usually be found within the yogurt section.
These deserts come in a small plastic pot that has a foil lid. The packaging is a white and red colour and the 'Muller Rice' logo is quite prominent on the lid.
These deserts are often on offer (for example I recently saw six Muller Rice available for £2 in Morrison's). You can also pick them up individually. I just paid 56p for my Muller Rice in Sainsbury's, which I think is quite reasonable.
************ Taste test ************
This desert is quite versatile because you have the option of either eating it hot or cold. If you are looking for a bit of comfort food, or it's a cold day then you can heat it by removing the foil lid and putting it into the microwave for 70 seconds (ensuring that you stir it half way through). You can also eat it cold, straight from the fridge.
This desert has a similar consistency to rice pudding. It has pieces of rice within it and it is very creamy. There is also strawberry jam in the middle.
Personally I think this product is delicious. The desert itself is very rich and the jam is a pleasant addition, because it isn't too overpowering, but adds a sweet kick. You can choose to stir the jam into the desert or to eat sections of the desert without the addition of jam. Personally I think the Muller Rice itself is very tasty and the jam isn't really required throughout the whole rice.

For me this desert ticks all the boxes: it is tasty, filling, affordable, you can eat it hot or cold and it's relatively healthy and in my opinion it's well worth the calories content.

Five out of five stars!
After having tried the custard variety of this Muller rice pudding, I decided to revisit an old favourite - the strawberry one, to see if I still enjoyed it as much as I had done a few years ago. I guess this is Mullers spin on the old school dinner favourite rice pudding and jam but as I am a rice pudding fan I was eager to give it a go.
I used to eat these a few years ago, they made a pleasant change to the yoghurt I would eat everyday for lunch at my office job. I think I overdosed on them as one day I just adding them to my weekly shop and I haven't bought any since.
As I said I spotted the custard one recently and gave it ago but was really rather disappointed. The custard just didn't live up to scratch and while it was pleasant it certainly didn't live up to expectations.
I picked up a couple of 190g pots of Muller Rice Strawberry from my local Tesco's for 50p each. This is quite pricey for a single pot but I have always trusted the Muller brand and have been happy to pay the extra pennies. I believe you can also pick this pud up as part of a 6 pack where 3 of this variety are sold alongside 3 of the plain Muller rice pots.
The great thing about these, is that they can be enjoyed either cold straight out of the fridge or can be heated up in the microwave for a few seconds. This makes them a pretty versitile pud and I enjoy them equally both ways.
In that instance I opted to have it cold and eagerly peeled back the lid. I could see a creamy pot full of heavenly rice pudding and a tiny trace of something red underneath. The spoon went in and I gave it a bit of a stir. The colour of the strawberry began to mix with the creaminess of the rice pudding and the contrast of the two looked fab.
Even better it tasted blooming lovely. The strawberry sauce just complemented the rice pudding beautifully and I really enjoyed the sweet thick creamy texure. This was way more enjoyable than the custard variety and I enjoyed every single spoonful. I will definately buy this one again to enjoy snuggled up on the sofa
Although I have just came round to trying Muller Fuirt Corners again recently, I have always loved Muller Rices. It is mainly the strawberry one that I have eaten, but over the last few months i've been branching out and trying other ones. I think the strawberry or raspberry ones are still my favourite.
These come in a 200g tub, but you can also buy a 6 pack of these which are a bit smaller and a bit better price for it. I would say an individual tub costs about 50p, but most supermarkets have an offer when you gt so many for so much. You don't tend to save that much though.
The tub that these come in is alright. Does the job. It is a round plastic tub with a foil lid. There is writing around the tub and on the foil lid. The nutritional information is quite small written on the tub.
You can eat these hot or cold. I like them either way. You can just heat these up in the plastic tub as long as all the foil from the lid has been removed when you put in the Microwave.
This is a nice creamed Rice with a bit of strawberry in the middle. There doesn't look like there is that much strawberry, but once you mix this through then it gives a good taste. Some people just leave the Strawberry bit in the middle and eat it, or I like to mix it though and get a nice berry taste through the rice. The strawberry part is sort of like a syrup, but not too thick.
I don't have a tub to hand, but think these tubs have about 190 calories, so maybe not the healthiest snack for you.
A nice dessert that you can eat on the go.
Having enjoyed the pot of Muller rice apple the other day I decided to try the strawberry version (am leaving the blueberry one until another day!) & paid 49p for a 200g tub.
It comes as shown in the picture & is a fairly sturdy container (which I may well use for using for seeds when washed) & a peel-off foil lid. It states that the product is free from artificial flavours & preservatives.
I was expecting it to be a fairly healthy dessert but (per 100 gms) it has 109 calories, 19g carbohydrate, only 2.2g fat but a whopping 13.2g sugar - so certainly not something I'd get in the habit of eating.
When I opened the lid I found a lot of the mixture was either on the lid or around the edges of the inside but a quick stir & a longer lick ensured none of the contents were wasted. There was a mild smell of strawberries & I could smell the rice which is nice & creamy.
I was a bit disappointed that I didn't find any strawberry bits in the dessert - it says on the tub there is 5% - but the taste was more like the strawberry that you fing in the Muller corners as opposed to fresh.
The rice is a thick creamy sweet one ( a little like tinned Ambrosia) & both flavours seem to complement each other well.
It can be served hot or cold & I had half cold then popped it in the microwave to see how it tasted - very nice both ways in my opinion.
I'm not sure whether or not I'd buy the strawberry one again unless I see it on offer as I preferred the more subtle taste of the apple with rice.
I can't fault the texture & if I'd read the nutritional values before purchasing then I'd have been prepared for the (overly) sweet taste so I can't blame Muller!
- tasty, filling & good texture.
- good hot or cold.
- not too many calories & fat but loads of sugar.
- nice enough but I prefer the apple which I'll buy again especially if it's on offer.
- makes a change from yoghurt.
I used to have rice pudding quite a bit when I was younger so when Muller Rice came out I was quite excited to try some and was very pleased with the outcome.
The only Muller Rice I've tried is the strawberry one and this one is delicious. It's made of a creamy dairy rice mixed with strawberry sauce. The sauce is the sort of strawberry sauce that you get in the Muller corner yoghurts - a little syrupy and very sweet. The rice is soft and there's lots of milky cream around it so it looks a bit like rice mixed with yoghurt.
You can have these either hot or cold but they are so much nicer hot. The instructions for heating them are on the pack - you just zap them in the microwave for 70 seconds stirring half way through. Heating them up makes them the perfect dessert in this weather and I get through so many of these as I have one every day at work for lunch. They're pretty filling so can also be eaten as just a snack during the day and for something to warm you up.
If you like rice pudding then you should definitely like these and the strawberry sauce gives it a sweeter and tastier flavour so that it doesn't taste so plain. Even if you don't like rice pudding I still think you should at least give one of these a try as they're really nice and the cream stops them from being stodgy and tasteless.
My husband has a desperate sweet tooth which drives me insane he can eat a selection box without a break and still fits into a 32 inch waist hmm soul destroying !! My new years resolution is to get the whole family eating a richer in calcium and lower sugar diet and these new mini muller rice perfectly fit the bill.
I had these on offer in asda this week 6 for 99p which is a fab bargain they are 95g pots and can be eaten hot or cold, they contain a little under 100kcals per pot and are delicious hot and perfect as they only take a few seconds in the microwave, even the baby enjoys these which is a bonus for me as I still worry that he isnt eating enough calcium rich foods, they come in loads of different flavours from vanilla custard to blackcurrant apple and raspberry so enough of a variety without getting bored.
These are perfect for kids lunch boxes and adults alike especially if they have access to a microwave, and as always with muller products contain low fat and no artificial colours orpreservatives, the new mini ones are ideal for those who never finish the bigger pots as they are not cheap to buy full price so I try and buy them whenever their on offer, try them and see for yourself.
I discovered the other day that I liked rice pudding, I've always thought I didn't so it was a bit of a shock to enjoy some Ambrosia rice pudding! So in Tesco yesterday I was picking some yogurts out and saw some pots of Muller Rice, I brought a strawberry one just to try because I've never had a Muller Rice before and picking strawberry was playing it safe.
You take the lid off and nuke the pot if you want to eat it hot but you can also have it cold. I warmed mine up because I'm not brave enough to try COLD rice pudding yet! lol
Straight away I could tell it wasn't as good as Ambrosia. It's quite thick but isn't as creamy as Ambrosia, it's still a nice texture to eat though and the rice is cooked nice.
The taste also isn't as nice as Ambrosia. This one hasn't got such a creamy flavour and the sweet taste isn't as good either. The main taste in this one is the milk I reckon and even though it still tastes ok there's nothing special about it.
I prefer the jam being cold as well because even though the strawberry flavour is proper nice it's HOT and that's just wrong for jam! lol The strawberry flavour is nice and sweet and it tastes mega fresh, it's like the strawberry sauce you get in a Muller Corner yogurt and mixes lovely with the rice.
I don't think I'll buy these again and none of the other flavours appeal to me either, they're dear for 1 serving of rice pudding and cost about 55p but you can buy a big tin of Ambrosia for 75p and you're better off to do that I think.
These are convenient though and if you're in a rush or can't be bothered getting a saucepan out then this only took 1 minute in the microwave. I reckon they'd be good for people who work and have a microwave in their office because the Muller Rice pots are quite filling so they'd be good for a packed lunch.
Recommended..... but not as good as Ambrosia!!!
Muller Rice - a delicious and satisfying snack for all.
Shropshire - the home of Muller Dairy. Muller Rice was first created in 1980.
This low fat rice pot with sauce is an ideal healthy and filling snack for any time of the day.
There is currently 8 flavours on the British Market which are
apple, apple and blackberry, blueberry, original, raspberry, strawberry, smooth toffee and vanilla custard.
The strawberry Muller Rice is a creamy rice pudding with strawberry sauce.
100g contains the following
109kcals, 3.2g protein, 1.3g fat, 190mg calcium
This product is not suitable for vegetarians or anyone who is lactose intolerant. It must be kept in a fridge.
Muller Rices are widely available in supermarkets alongside yoghurts. Some shops only have a limited range compared to others. The average price for an individual pot is around 53p however most stores have these on offer. They also come in multi packs of 6 which is the apple and raspberry versions together. These sometimes work out cheaper than buying the puddings individually.
Would i recommend this?
I love Muller Rice and the strawberry version is a particular favourite of mine. It is a great alternative to normal everyday yoghurts and seems more of a dessert than a snack to me. As part of my diet i have reserved the Muller Rices as a treat to combat my sweet tooth. The best bit about these is they can be ate cold straight from the fridge or heated up in the microwave for a warm rice pudding treat.
Muller Dairy is based in Market Drayton in Shropshire which is not a million miles away from me.
Their range of yogurts and dessert pots are very popular and delicious, and the same goes for their range of rice based products Muller Rice which can be found in the chiller cabinets in all of the major supermarkets and maybe even smaller food shops also. Sometimes they are on offer, anfd I have seen them 3 or sometimes 4 for £2 for a pound which is OK given they are about 50p ish in the shops nowadays, 52p they currently sell for in Tesco.
So what are they then? Well a rice pudding style dessert which has different sauce flavours available, the sauce is ususally at the bottom of the pot ready for mixing in if you should so desire. The usual fruit flavours apply such as strawberry, apple etc, and they are accodring the packet low fat, and also free from artificial colours and free from artificial preservatives.
Ingredients=Milk, Sugar, Rice (7%), Stawberries (5%), Modified Maize Starch, Egg, Stabilisers: Carob Bean Gum, Guar Gum, Salt, Beetroot Juice Concentrate, Flavourings, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates, Colour: Carmines
I am surprised to see that the rice content is only 7%. Not to worry, well they come in 200g plastic pots with a foil covering which needs to be removed prior to heating or just consumption from the fridge of course but highly important if microwaving to heat up get rid of all the foil covering.
They can be enjoyed straight from the fridge or warm up in the microwave straight from the de-foiled pot.
I do not find these particularly creamy as they say they are, they are a nice product don't get me wrong but certainly not creamy. They are quite thick but not gloopy so the consistency is just right really. The sauce is a little sweet on its own but then again it should really be distributed evenly throughout the product to spread the flavour around.
I do not find them as nice as normal tinned rice puddding but I do find the convenience factor of whacking the pot in the microwave particularly appealing as it means less dishes.
I would not buy these at full price, but if a promotion on them happened to catch my eye I would go for them.
