“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Yoghurts „
This is one of Tesco's own brand Yoghurts which I tried last night and have to say that it was as good as any of the more expensive branded versions of the same type and was on offer as 6 for £2.00
It comes with a vanilla yoghurt and a separate portion of 3 different type chocolate covered cereal balls , as with the branded versions the corner containing the balls flips over allowing you to mix them in with the yoghurt
The Yoghurt is a vanilla flavour but not over powering , I also felt it was creamy and smooth and could be compared again to the branded versions but a lower prices , I also found that the yoghurt was quite thick and not runny
There are other flavours available such as the fruit version which has a strawberry compote rather than cereal balls in the corner
It comes in a plastic pot with a foil lid both of which I assume can be recycled
the Nutritional values for those who find them of interest are below and are per pot
Calories 235 (12%)
Sugar 29.-g ( 33%) so not really for those on a diet
Fat 9.8g (14%) ( again not for the lettuce munchers)
Saturates 5.4g (27%)
Salt 0.2g (3%)
I think these are good for a lunch time snack or as I had yesterday as an alternative to a desert after dinner
My wife & I are big fans of yoghurt. We tend to buy it regularly & usually have it in the house. We especially like the Muller Fruit Corners although we regularly use Tesco's own brands so were more than willing to try them out when we saw them on offer at 3 for £1.00. They are around the 40p mark each.
This variety has vanilla yoghurt. It's close to natuarl yoghurt with a very light & subtle taste of vanilla. It tastes fresh & smooth. The texture is very nice. It isn't thin although it isn't very thick either. The corner that comes with it is a chocolate crunch corner. This is loads of little crunchy balls of white, milk & dark chocolate. These really compliment the yoghurt. They are crunchy but not hard. They have a good chocolate flavour & help to make the yoghurt a little more exciting.
I would recommend the yoghurt & I would be more than happy to buy it again. In my opinion if you had a blind taste test & compared the Tesco brand to a more popular brand I think you would struggle to tell the difference. This yoghurt is good value for money & if you want something a little better than a standard yoghurt I don't think you'll be dissapointed.
My mum bought these "tesco vanilla triple choc crunch duo mix" because they were cheap(er) than the muller corner equivalent. You would think that being a lower price would mean they taste worse and suprisingly, they dont particularly. These actually are about the same. I have reviewed the muller corner version and the yoghurt actually tastes better, i think it has a better consistency in the tesco version and the flavour of the yoghurt is more consistant. The choco balls however, are different. Though having one extra type of chocolate, which is one good thing, the center of the choco balls is much crumblier, making it a little mushy in your mouth.
I must say though that the packaging is very clever. Tesco have sensibly used a completely foil lid, rather than the plastic coated paper rubbish they use on muller corners. Another great thing about the packaging is the choco ball section which you pour into the yoghurt has a taper to it, so that the balls all go into the yoghurt rather than onto the floor or in the cracks of your seat.
Healthwise, this has a lot of sugar in it (33% of your GDA), saturated fat (27%) and 2% of your salt, which is quite high for a yoghurt i think.
Overall, i believe they are on par with the muller equivalent and with a combination of Muller choco balls and the Tesco yoghurt and packaging i think you would have the perfect crunch yoghurt, though the health aspects could be improved slightly.
When me and my partner were in Tesco earlier I was looking for something sweet to have after my dinner. My eyes fell on these which were 38p each or 3 for £1. I primarilly picked them because they appeared to be very similar to a muller variety which I have loved for a very long time. The yoghurt pot is rectangular in shape, with 2 sections, a large one containing yoghurt and the small one containing the chocolate balls. The pot itself is white and the foil lid is predominantly a creamy yellow colour with a large bold title and a picture of the product in the upper right hand corner. The packaging tells me it is Vanilla triple choc crunch, therefore I assumed the yoghurt was vanilla and the balls were something coated in all 3 colours of chocolate.
Opening the yoghurt I can see that there are a generous helping of balls and there are roughly an equal number of each colour. The yogurt itself is a rich creamy colour and possibly verging on a light yellow. Firstly I tested the yoghurt, this was very thick and creamy and had a strong vanilla taste. I was pleased by this because the flavour was quite a bit stronger than other vanilla yoghurts on the market. The balls turned out to be cereal coated with chocolate. These were crunchy and tasted good. Although the chocolate coating them was not of high quality they still tasted nice. When mixed together, the yoghurt and balls taste really good, the vanilla yoghurt is almost soothing and cools the chocolate on your tongue.
I really enjoyed this snack and will certainly buy them again. I really liked the idea of having cereal rather than biscuit pieces as it makes the dessert slightly less sweet and I believe it could be consumed as a quick breakfast or a filling snack. They are good value, especially in comparison to the branded products and I personally could not spot any differences. I think there was a very good sized portion of chocolate balls and when these were mixed in with the yoghurt there was a good ratio of yoghurt to chocolate.
I was really shocked by the fat content in this product! Each pot (150g) contains 235 calories, 29.9g sugar, 9.8g fat (5.4g saturates) and 0.2g salt. The product had a really good date on it, I had 25 days to eat it, providing it was kept refrigerated.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet treat, snack or lunchbox filler. 3 for £1 is a great deal and they are a good alternative to crisps and biscuits (even though they aren't any healthier!)
I've tried a few of the new Tesco Duo Mix yoghurts in the last month or so, and out of all of them this is the only one I've really liked. It's pretty much a take on the Muller Crunch Corner yoghurt, but for a slightly lower price. One of these 175g yoghurt and chocolate costs 38p, or you can buy 3 for £1 as part of a long-running special offer. That's compared to 52p for a 150g Muller Crunch Corner, so there's a significant little saving to be had by switching to these from the brand name favourite.
My first impression of this yoghurt was excellent. The yoghurt is thick, creamy and there's plenty of it as well. It's got a nice, sweet, vanilla scent to it that made me want to dig right in asap. The chocolate crunchy balls are top stuff too, which isn't a given where Tesco chocolate is concerned! But no, the chocolate used here is tasty enough, and there are more than enough choco crunch balls to go around too.
The yoghurt is divided into two sections, a square for the yoghurt and a small rectangle for the white, milk and dark chocolate balls. This keeps the topping nice and crunchy in storage, and you mix them together by simply snapping the little rectangle into the square. It's the same principal as the Muller Corner triangular pots, only the lower quality packaging means that it's a bit hard to bend the Tesco version and you do need to be careful not to snap your pot or spill your chocolate balls.
All in all this is a tasty little yoghurt snack that I'd happily buy again and again. I do like the original Muller version, but there's so little difference between the taste of the two brands that I don't see the need to pay the higher brand name price. The Tesco version has a sweet, creamy and very authentic vanilla taste that's perfectly accompanied by the crunchy, tasty chocolate balls. The packaging has room for improvement, but for the price I can't complain. Definitely worth five stars on price and taste alone.
