Strawberry Yoghurt - Müller light strawberry - virtually fat-free yogurt with sugar & sweetener

Bought over the road at the generally yummy Hampers sandwich bar, which sadly has a very limited yoghurt stock for the - erm - connoisseur.

Hmmm. This has a surprising amount of fruit in it, a surprisingly decent texture, and is surprisingly nice, considering. I do buy these quite often. Which is surprising.

The very very alert reader will have noticed the words "surprising" and "surprisingly" getting a bit of an outing in the above paragraph. Am I d*mning with faint praise or something? Erm yes. The problem with this yoghurt is that it tries, like others, to make a super-healthy product out of ingredients which in nature contain a lot of fat and which need sweetening for many people's tastes. (If I ever find a strawberry yoghurt on sale which is not sweetened with sugar, sweeteners or anything except strawberries, I'll let you know. Or you let me know, please, if I have missed it. Is this a technological impossibility or something?)

As a result, it tastes of aspartame as well as strawberries and yoghurt. If you love the taste of aspartame this is probably great but I don't - there's something a bit odd that lingers, and I am not that keen. I will probably go on buying these from time to time, for a variety of reasons too boring to recount, but it's never going to get into my Fave Raves Top Ten while it's essentially a Strawberry and Aspartame Yoghurt. It's a lot better than other products in this part of the market. I might write some more of them up, one day.

Oh, and it's in a great big container, so you get to enjoy it for longer. Or something. Slightly yum. Loadsa fruit. 200g. Yeah.

This is a good attempt in many ways. If Müller could make something which delivers all the health benefits of low fat, low sugar, etc, and tasted just a bit better - i.e. I could not taste the artificial sweetener - then they'd be on a winner.


Surprisingly surprising, considering.
