Muller Yogurt & a Giveaway

Pin It PIN IT!

So, I have to tell you something. I don’t actually LIKE to eat yogurt on its own. I don’t wake up in the morning and crave yogurt. It’s not that I don’t love the taste, it’s more of a texture thing. It’s hard to sit down and eat cold, somewhat gooey dairy first thing. However, it’s a really healthy, protein packed way to start your day, so I know I should eat it. So, when I was chosen to review Quaker’s new Müller yogurt, I was a little excited and a little worried.

They sent an entire box of yogurt, which quickly filled up the bottom drawer of my fridge. My husband, who isn’t a fan of dairy (or it isn’t a fan of him) grabbed one of the FrutUp varities and inhaled it. “Hey, it’s good! Sort of tastes like dessert.” Was his general consensus. Well, if he likes it, I guess I should try it, right? So I grabbed one of the Müller Corners and opened it up. And SURPRISE! It had little luscious chocolate flakes to pair with your yogurt and an easy, bendable container so you can easily pour.

Even though I’m usually wary of textures, I absolutely loved the contrast of the crunchy to the soft. Same with the taste. I loved the sweet, chocolate taste of the flakes with the tangy flavor of the yogurt. Because that one went over so well, I decided to try another one. I mean, we had a whole box, I should at least try a few the day they arrive, right? So I eyed the honeyed apricot Greek corner and whipped it open.

Honey and yogurt is one of the best flavor pairings ever, in the history of the world. Plus, the honey adds a natural sweetness to the tangy, tart yogurt without the need for a ton of preservatives. I think the honey was even better than the chocolate. After eating my fill, I decided to do a bit of research on the company and found this fabulous infographic! You could put anything in an infographic and I’d happily read it. So, politicians and news people? Info-graph that shizz, and I’ll finally care a bit.

I’m probably Quaker’s number 1 fan, so I was also a little worried about reviewing their new yogurt. Luckily, I love it so Quaker and I can continue on our happy way, holding hands and singing about oats. And now yogurts! From a health perspective, Müller yogurt is made from reduced-fat, Grade A milk and is a good source of calcium and protein. Natural yogurt is healthiest on it’s own, but if you want some natural sweetness, I’d highly recommend pairing it with honey.

If you can’t decided which flavor to top your yogurt with, why not try a few? Mix and match? Because we had 12085038 cartons of yogurt to go through, I made a larger parfait one morning with honey, almonds, some sliced peaches and a sprinkling of granola.

It was amazing!

That is one thing I love about yogurt; you don’t have to eat it alone! You can pair it with other healthy ingredients for a breakfast you’ll want to jump out of bed to eat.

The lovely folks at Müller are also kind enough to let me host a giveaway here so you can try the yogurt yourself! They are giving away 10 free coupons ($15 value) to one of you lucky readers. So, go ahead and enter the fabulous prompts below! Good luck!

    I love yogurt in the morning with my cereals or my oatmeal. Sometimes, after lunch, I just dip apple in vanilla greek yogurt: so goood!

    I love yogurt. I found that you can get the consistency of greek yogurt without paying the price for it by straining it through cheesecloth overnight in the fridge. :)

    I love eating it with honey and lots of fruit! a dash of granola never hurts either. I guess it's not a special way to eat it, but still... ^^

    This is the only yogurt I'll eat. I've tried different brands and flavors in America, but I decided to give it another shot out here. This was one of three brands that I picked up and I have just about every flavor on hand—I'm curious what flavors they have back in the states, because i'm going crazy over how delicious some of them are here (coffee, hazelnut, banana/kiwi, melon, etc.) SO good. I may go have some now!!

    I usually just eat vanilla yogurt with granola on top. I saw these in the store this morning and almost decided to try it but didn't. Now I wish I had gone with my impulse! Maybe ill get lucky and win!

    i love blueberry, raspberry, or vanilla yogurt with honey nut granola on top. i don't mind it plain, either! sometimes, i chop apples up into tiny segments, stir in some vanilla yogurt, & sprinkle a little cinnamon on top - it is a delicious & filling snack! :)

    The number one thing I ALWAYS put in my yogurt is cinnamon. Then, either maple syrup or honey. Then, ground flaxseed. Probably bananas, berries, and toasted almonds, too :)

    OMG! I'm so excited about this! I love Müller™ :) I discovered it when I lived in the UK for a few months and it was among the first things I looked for in the supermarket when I went to the US only to find out that it wasn't readily available. Now I'm psyched I can have those Corners variant again!

    I love to just eat it out of the container or in a smoothie.

    Not a fan of yogurt either, except with mango, blueberry, or honey. And I can't eat a lot before getting sick of it, so the size looks perfect!

    I tried this while I was in Europe, and I fell in love. It's the perfect office treat, because it has everything you need in one convenient package. Not to mention it's dessert-worthy delicious.

    I'm from the UK originally and have really missed Muller since moving to the US 2 years ago. I'm on the West Coast so I hope they start stocking it here soon :). I also hope they keep to the original recipe, don't sweeten it up, and make Mullerlight available (its my favourite in the range and is great for weight watchers!).
