“ Brand: Muller / Type: Flavoured Milk „
Having recently bought one of the each of the new Muller milk drinks (Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry) it seemed time to finally try them all. I started with the Vanilla one which seemed to strike me as "alright" but nothing special. In my eyes it was too runny and the flavour wasn't one that I was particularly hot on, I then chose to try the chocolate one.
Like the rest of the range the drink comes in a professionally designed bottle with a "stubby" shape that holds 400ml (or 425g) of the drink. The colour scheme of the bottle is blue and brown (the brown obviously representing chocolate) and the bottle claims that the drink contains only 1.8% fat (which is pretty decent for a chocolate flavoured milkshake). The biggest factor however isn't the claims or the bottle, but the actual drink.
Knowing how thin and runny the Vanilla flavour was I gave this bottle a real meaningful shake up to the point where you couldn't hear the milk moving around the bottle, presumably this would thicken the drink up properly. When I opened the bottle the top was filled with chocolatey bubbles and this seemed to be a good start, sadly this good start didn't last to long and when it came to actually drinking it...the drink was as runny as the vanilla one had been. Whilst the runniness is a major issue (I like thick "milkshakes" not runny flavoured milk) the bigger issue was the flavour, it was...less that satisfactory, in fact it was really off putting and artificial tasting. The chocolate flavour is "there" but it's not a nice flavour at all.
Whilst I didn't particularly mind the Vanilla one (despite not being a fan) this chocolate one was...quite offensive to my taste buds. Having enjoyed Frijj's chocolate based milkshakes maybe I've just become accustomed to a better quality of taste but this strikes me as having the same sort of taste as the milk left in a bowl of coco pops...and the same consistency!
