“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Yoghurts „
I love the Muller Corner version of this but their prices are going a bit out of my range at the minute so I decided to try the Tesco Duo Chocolate Crunch And Banana because it's only 38p. They're on special offer at the minute where you can buy 3 for £1.00 and that's until the 22nd of Feb.
This is just like the Muller one and the only difference is that the chocolate covered cornflakes taste more like dark chocolate than milk, that's weird as well because on the ingredients list it deffo says they're milk chocolate.
You can either tip the flakes into the yogurt or do it a spoon at a time. You might as well tip them in though because the cornflakes are coated good in the chocolate so they won't go soggy. I always tip them in and give it a good stir so that the flakes are all through the yogurt and you'll usually get at least one flake with each spoon.
The yogurt is smooth and creamy, it's got a lovely banana flavour that tastes very natural. It's quite a sweet yogurt and that gives it a bit of the same flavour as those foam banana sweets you can buy. It's a mega refreshing yogurt and so creamy tasting that it doesn't hardly taste like yogurt at all.
The cornflakes are wicked. The chocolate isn't that thick on them but it's so mega rich that they've got a massive coco flavour. The combo of the crunchy chocolate flakes and smooth fruity yogurt is wicked and I felt madly disappointed when I got to the bottom! lol
This yogurt is just as good as the Muller one, it's loads cheaper and actually I like the darker flavour of the cornflakes better because they stand out even more against the banana yogurt.
Each pot has got 210 calories and 8g fat so that's not brill for a yogurt..... it's a good job I don't eat yogurt that often because I never go for the healthy low fat version!
Very highly recommended yogurt snack. I used to eat the muller corners but they were getting a bit expensive, then I saw the cheaper Tesco version. They cost only £1 for 3 and they taste just as good if not better, but that is probably because of the amount of sugar.
Having said that, if you look at other yogurts they also contain a lot of sugar, which Ive never realised before.
Yogurt 69%, Sugar, Milk Chocolate Coated Cereal Flakes 8%, Water, Banana Puree 4.5%, Lemon juice from concentrate, stabilisers (pectin, xanthan gum), natural flavouring.
They are suitable for vegetarians but not for nut allergy sufferers. It doesnt contain nuts but they cannot guarantee its nut free.
Each pot contains
27.6 grams of sugar
9.6 grams of fat
Basically it is a sweet banana flavoured yogurt, with chocolate covered cornflakes which you tip in the yogurt for extra flavour. In one pot you get 150grams. Together they are quite sweet, but its a nice dessert to have after a meal or as a snack as it does fill you up a bit and does not contain too many additives.
I have recently discovered the wonder that is Muller crunch corner (banana choc flakes variety) and am thoroughly enjoying my indulging of this new found addiction, I must say!
It was whilst I was in my local Tesco supermarket getting some more Muller crunch yogurts to re-stock my fridge, that I noticed that Tesco have created their own version of the Muller crunch corner, called a 'Duo' yogurt. I noted immediately that the packaging for the Duo yogurts sports a 'double pot' similar to that of the Muller yogurts, in that it has two compartments contained in the plastic pot.
Of course, I decided that I MUST try the Duo yogurts to compare them to the Muller option and I noted that by doing so, I would be able to save a little money - the Tesco Duo yogurts are only 38 pence each which is approximately 20 pence cheaper than the Muller alternatives.
Settling down to sample the Tesco offering for the first time, I noted that the brightly-coloured packaging proudly informs me that the product is "Deliciously thick and creamy banana flavoured yogurt with a separate portion of crunchy milk chocolate coated cornflakes".
Upon tearing back the foil lid, I could quite clearly see that the Duo yogurt had a small 'compartment' containing the chocolate cornflakes, whilst the largest compartment contained what appeared to be quite thick yogurt. I decided to take my first few mouthfuls by having a spoonful of the banana yogurt topped off with a few of the chocolate cornflakes and by doing so was able to give it the 'taste test'...
The yogurt was very sweet, and although this suits my (overly) sweet tooth down to the ground, I would imagine that many people would find this to be off-putting and quite sickly. I personally didn't, and enjoyed the very thick banana flavoured yogurt.
What I did find though was that the banana flavouring was quite false. Not at all unpleasant, but I could certainly tell that it was not a natural banana taste and I felt it was on a par with banana-flavoured sweets or indeed my beloved Muller crunch yogurts.
Whilst eating it I was also aware that the chocolate cornflakes seemed a bit pointless as they didn't really add anything to the yoghurt and indeed were rather tasteless! I think perhaps they are there to provide a bit of 'bite' to the yogurt as a whole and I was more aware of the (albeit very nice) crunchy texture of the cornflakes rather than any taste coming from them.
I thought too that the chocolate cornflakes in the Tesco Duo yogurt were covered with milk chocolate of a lesser quality than the cornflakes in the Muller corner. This means that the cornflakes in the Muller crunch yogurt definitely add more to the dessert on the whole, so therefore I think that Muller have to be crowned the winner of the Banana and Chocolate Cornflake yogurt competition!
To be fair though, the Tesco duo was very enjoyable and I would buy them again. I am going to knock off one star because I think that the cornflakes let it down a little, but eating this little Duo yogurt was by no means an unpleasant experience! ;-)
The nutritional information given on the lid of the pot tells me that the 150g tub of yogurt will provide 230 calories and 9.6g of fat, so it is obviously not the healthiest option available, nor is it probably the most ideal snack for those of you who are watching your figures!
Tesco duo mix yoghurt with banana and chocolate costs 38 pence in any Tesco store, although I do believe at the time when I bought it there was a promotion available, and you could purchase three yogurts for £1, thus making them even better value for money.
I would recommend them, they offer brilliant value and I did enjoy eating them - I just felt that the Muller alternatives were of a slightly higher quality but of course they are more expensive. These Duos were still a four star offering though! :-D
