Are you tired of yogurt full of artificial sweeteners that leaves a weird aftertaste or Greek yogurt that’s super gritty and chalky? I was too, until I got to try out Muller Yogurt! Muller yogurt has been popular in Europe for a number of years, and it’s finally starting to come to the US, starting with the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.
The Products: Muller Yogurt: Müller™ Corner™, Müller™ Greek Corner™ and Müller™ FrütUp™
My Experience with the Products: I’ll be the first to admit that it has taken me a number of years into adulthood for me to finally like and enjoy eating yogurt. I always wanted to like yogurt because I knew how important it was to have plenty of calcium and vitamin D, especially as a woman, but there was just something about the texture that would get to me. Then I tried the “healthier” versions made with artificial sweeteners that just tasted fake and left a horrible aftertaste. Luckily, a couple years ago I was introduced to Greek yogurt that had a satisfying texture and felt indulgent, however it was difficult to find brands that weren’t chalky, gritty and a complete turn off. I’m happy to say that thanks to Muller, I’ve now found the best of both worlds in the land of yogurt! Thanks to the generosity of Mullers, I was able to try several varieties of their new to the states yogurt. Near the end of the post you can find all the various flavors. Between the boyfriend wanting to “steal” certain flavors and the cats attempting to “help themselves”, especially the Chewie the Yogurt Lover, as I was trying to take pictures, this was a tasty fun review.
Müller™ Greek Corner™:
First up, I decided to try the one I knew would be toughest to impress me with, the Müller™ Greek Corner™, since as I said above, I really can’t stand the super chalky Greek yogurts. I tried out the Greek Corner lowfat yogurt with caramelized almonds, which is a real treat for me as I rarely eat tree nuts anymore since the boyfriend is allergic. One container has 220 calories (35 fat cals), 9g of fat, 2 g of saturated fat, 15mg cholesterol, 75mg sodium, 21g carbs, 1g fiber, 18g sugar, 13g protein, 25%DV calcium, and 2% DV iron. I loved that the ingredient list is only 3 lines long and that the yogurt is made with sugar and not an artificial sweetener.
This yogurt did not disappoint me at all, and I, in fact, cannot wait to try more! I love that the container is easy to use and that you can flip the mix-ins straight into the yogurt. The yogurt itself is super creamy with a slight richness and tart flavor without chalkiness getting in the way. I was really interested to see how the almonds would be, as with some products, the mix-ins tend to get stale and all around bleh. However, these almonds were crunchy, fresh, and delicious. They were a nice compliment to the yogurt, without being cloyingly sweet or overpowering.
The next Muller yogurt I picked to try was the Müller™ Corner™ lowfat yogurt with choco balls. Yes, that’s right, chocoballs, or crispy rice covered in chocolate in vanilla yogurt. … … … Sorry for the pause, I had to clean up some drool. 😉 One container has 210 calories (25 fat cals), 5g fat, 3.5g saturated fat, 15mg cholesterol, 90mg sodium, 32g carbs, 26g sugar, 9g protein, and 20% DV calcium. Thanks to the chocolate candies, this yogurt contains a few more ingredients, but the yogurt is still made with sugar.
As you can probably guess, as much as I loved the other 2 yogurts, this was hands down my favorite. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I love chocolate and I enjoy finding ways to incorporate it into a healthier lifestyle. This yogurt certainly fit the bill. The yogurt itself is so very creamy with just a touch of vanilla to make you feel like you’re eating ice cream that isn’t quite frozen. There’s no icky aftertaste and I’d honestly be happy to just dip my spoon into the vanilla yogurt daily. However, I of course had to try out the chocolate covered rice balls and they are so yummy. The crisp rice is still actually crisp and not stale while the chocolate tastes real instead of like the somewhat common mockolate these days. They are also super tiny, smaller than a pea, so you can enjoy a few in each delicious bite. This will be my go-to when I’m craving something sweet, but want to stay healthy and not over do it.
Yes, that is our fuzzy cat Chewie at the side eagerly hoping I will share. 😉
I was really intrigued by the Müller™ FrütUp™ as it is a yogurt on the bottom and a fruity mousse on top. I decided to try the Blueberry Bliss, while the boyfriend couldn’t even wait for me to review before digging into the Splendid Strawberry. One container has 140 calories, 15 from fat, 1.5g fat, 10mg cholesterol, 75mg sodium, 26g carbs, 23g sugar, 7g protein, and 15%DV calcium. The yogurt is again made with sugar and no artificial sweeteners and real fruits. The one interesting thing I found when reading the ingredient list that made me do a double take is tilapia. Yes, you read that correctly, tilapia, the fish, is apparently used to make kosher gelatin for the mousse. Who knew? You certainly can’t tell when you taste the yogurt and I still want to eat it every day!
When the boyfriend tried the strawberry he immediately said, “I think this is the best yogurt I’ve ever had.” Once he finally let me try a spoonful, I could see why. The mousse is so light, creamy and simply delicious with a full natural fruit taste while the yogurt is creamy and goes perfectly with the fruit whether you want to eat it in layers or mix it all together. These would especially make a great after dinner light snack or as an accompaniment to breakfast and I love that they are a bit lower in calories.
I took the above pictures on a bed since it was a rainy day and that room had the best light. I probably should have closed the door, because I ended up with all 4 cats on the bed wanting their own taste test. Chewie was especially adamant about it, so I gave him just a bit of plain Greek yogurt.
I know he doesn’t look too happy here, but this is the way I always give him some as he doesn’t like licking it off of a surface for whatever reason. Yet, he always comes back for more when I give it to him like this and this time was no different. 😉
Final Takeaway: Can a girl that used to hate yogurt really want more after eating 3 containers? Yes, yes she can. Along with a boyfriend who also loved it, and cats who enjoy sneaking a few tastes, you can bet we’ll be buying Muller yogurt again and again! Plus, at an average cost of $.99-$1.29 per yogurt, it’s not only a healthy snack, but affordable as well.
