Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Muller Light with Chocolate Flakes Confirmed sighting: Muller Light with Chocolate Flakes
Posted: 21:49 Thu 08-Jan-2009. Price: £1.50 for a 6 pack. Location: ASDA, Great Bridge. Sub-flavours: Vanilla with Dark Chocolate Flakes; Orange with Dark Chocolate Flakes; Vanilla and Black Cherry with Dark Chocolate Flakes. Nutritional unusualness: Real Dark Chocolate flakes and less than 100 calories per 165g pot.
"Talk Show Host" reports: As news of a £7.5 million relaunch of Muller Light was announced but a few days ago, I was quite pleased to stumble into an ASDA store and see that they had the new Dark Chocolate Flake variety in stock. Better still, they were at a launch price of just £1.50 for 6 pots. In the multipack you get three flavours (2 pots of each), with 165g of dessert in them, a full 35g less than a standard Muller Light. For this reason the claim on the packaging that they are less than 100 calories is kind of a con as they contain way less in them than a run-of-the-mill Muller Light.

Anyway, enough of the facts and onto the important thing. What do they taste like? I tried the Black Cherry one first and thought it was delicious. The layer of cherry is on the bottom and is suitably 'bitty' with a sweetness that reminded me of the Black Forest cakes of days gone by. The dark chocolate is in just the right amount too, not too much as to overpower the yoghurt. A definite hit. Second I tried the orange one and it was quite impressive as I am not a big fan of orange yoghurt at any time. The contrast of the chocolate and orange was perfect and the overall flavour was certainly similar to the dark segments of Terry's Chocolate Orange (that you only seem to be able to get in those big monster tins). Another hit!

Lastly, the vanilla one was another hit as it had slightly more chocolate than the others. The vanilla was slightly sweeter than the standard Muller Light Vanilla and this was a plus point for me. This is set to be the only flavour available outside of the Multipack and I can see it being a success. Overall, I was really impressed with these and they made me skip my usual pot of Rachel's Organic Divine Rice for a full 6 days. Are they better than normal Muller Light? YES, definitely. Are they better than Rachel's Rice or Extra Thick yoghurts? Sadly no, but then what is?

...A reassuringly detailed sighting from our regular ASDA/Muller correspondent there, while "A really nice variant - more saucy stuff than the other flavours!" was all that "ninja" managed regarding Muller Rice Limited Edition Cherry Flavour (69p in Covent Garden, London). Elsewhere, Danone's Activia Intensely Creamy seems to have a tamer definition of "Intensely" and "Sumptuously" (as in "Strawberry") to most usages (also available in Luscious Cherry, Zesty Lemon and otherwise-unremarkable Peaches and Cream), so I've been keeping my Tummy Working Like Clockwork (TM) with these Muller Vitality Yogurts - a concept they've invitingly illustrated on the packet with a pic of large, metal interlocking gears.

Comment: Calling all Muller Rice Fans !

Are you a family who love Muller Rice?

Muller Rice are looking for a Mum, Dad and at least two kids (ideally aged 9-15) within the M25 area who love their product for a TV commercial being filmed 6th-8th April 2009.

Does Mum hide the strawberry flavour from everyone?

Are there any disputes about who eats the last one?

Is Dad a secret Muller rice midnight snacker?

Please email Kirsty at: muller (at!) homecorp.tv with a family photo, a little bit about your favourite flavours and a daytime contact phone number. We look forward to hearing from you!

Comment: You might be wasting your time if you get in touch with Kirsty! She'll ask you if you can be available for a certain week, go through all the pics, say "that's great, I'll DEFINITELY be in touch" - and then never return your call or emails a month later.

Not bugged about not being in the advert, just thought it's a bit rude when someone keeps days free for you, and you don't bother to let them know what's going on or not, especially when they're self employed and they told you they needed to plan their diary.

FWIW, apple is my favourite, although too much of it and I get mullered...

Comment: I thought this guy was serious!! So much so, that I basically checked out of the business, let him take control of it, and began making plans for the next chapter in our life journey. I gave him our offer sheet, and it went unacknowledged for three weeks. I started to wonder what the hell was happening – no counter offer, no discussion, no “are you crazy, I wouldn’t give you half of what you’re asking for this dump!” Nothing. Upon finally being pressed for a response, he simply said “I’m not interested, and I've decided to concentrate on other issues.” Huh?? What about the crowd of friends you had in here two nights ago speaking as if you were the soon-to-be owner?chanel
