Advantages creamy, rich, strong flavour
Disadvantages not too healthy!
I hadn't set out to try any of the yoghurts in the Müller Amore range, but when I read a mouth-watering review about the Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Flake option, it sounded so scrumptious that I just couldn't help myself.The Amore yoghurts come in a lower pot than most, but still have a good depth to them. This particular pot is a deep blue shade, very attractive and more sophisticated than the traditional white plastics. On the lid you'll notice an image of what the yoghurt is suggested to look like. If it did look the same, it was a good start.
As I peeled back the lid, which was a little tougher than I had expected, I peered into the pot. It was full to the brim, and it indeed did look as suggested. The thick, fresh white yoghurt was filled with lots of little dark brown specks, better known as the chocolate flakes. They seemed quite small though and I wondered whether I would be able to taste them or not. Nonetheless, I had a little more hope, as the sweet dark chocolate
By the time I had finished the yoghurt, I was left feeling pleasantly full, which is always a benefit. I didn't feel the brunt of the sickly sweet chocolate until the final spoonful, where the rich dark chocolate taste made me feel a little ill. Other than that though, all was perfect!As this creamy treat is described as indulgent, and has such an amazingly sweet taste, I hadn't expected it to be healthy in the slightest. I was correct. Each 150g pot has 255 calories and 25.8g sugars, as well as a whopping 14.3g fat. That is exceptionally high and usually way out of my comfort zone, but as it was a one-off, I'll let the feeling of guilt pass! On a benefit, it contains milk and is a good source of calcium.
This yoghurt is not exactly as versatile as others. I often like to add yoghurt to my weetabix, or with fruit. Unfortunately, you'll find there is far too much to add the entire pot to cereals (though you could half it with somebody) and it simply doesn't have the right taste for fruit. You may wish to take it with you for lunch or on a picnic, though I wouldn't suggest giving it to children for their lunches at school; there's quite a lot in the full pot and spillage risks are at a high! Though, you could always serve it as an after-school snack.Müller yoghurts are such a popular brand, you'll find them at almost every supermarket and shop. That means that the price will vary, though they tend to be priced at around 68p, and are currently on offer at Asda with a deal of 5 for £3.
