Yo, who else loves yogurt? New Müller yogurt hits Orlando grocery store shelves

Is it just me or is yogurt taking over the whole back of grocery stores lately? And could there be more choices? Low-fat, light, organic, whipped, 2%, Greek, French, etc. and strange (yet, totally welcome) new flavors. I recently saw cinnamon bun, red velvet cake and devil dog. Okay, I made that last one up.

Now that I'm trying to eat healthier and keep active, I've made yogurt, especially Greek, a part of my snack routine. A little more protein never hurts and the flavors seem to satisfy my sweet tooth. Red velvet yogurt appeals more to my emotional eating than chocolate yogurt does in the same way a paint color such as "urban putty" sounds more sophisticated than "off white." Tricky, but whatever works.

Recently I received a few free samples of Quaker's new Müller yogurt to try. Müller yogurt is the number-one yogurt in the U.K. and has generations of loyal fans spanning many countries who love Müller yogurt for its delicious, creamy taste and unique flavor varieties.

The product will hit store shelves this month and the first three products to be introduced in the U.S. are Müller FrütUp, Müller Corner and Müller Greek Corner.

Müller Corner products are top-sellers in the U.K., with a two-chamber cup that includes creamy yogurt in one chamber and delicious mix-ins like caramelized almonds, fruit mixes and chocolate in the other. There will be 10 versions of Müller Corner, including four thicker, creamier Greek-style yogurt products.

Müller FrütUp is a parfait-style yogurt, leveraging new technology that allows a fluffy fruit mousse to sit on top of the yogurt. Müller FrütUp will come in six varieties.

It was fun to flip up the side compartment and dump the mix-ins right into the yogurt. The caramelized almonds were a nice treat, and the Greek yogurt was one of the best I've tried, but my favorite was the Splendid Strawberry low fat yogurt with fruit mousse. Forget about "fruit on the bottom," whipped fruit on the top is the way to go from now on!

The FrütUp yogurts are made with 2 percent Grade A milk and have no preservatives, artificial sweeteners, or high fructose corn syrup. And each is between 140 to 150 calories per serving.

Other flavors include Peach Passion Fruit, Luscious Lemon, Blueberry Bliss, Radiant Raspberry and Very Cherry. I'm thinking "Luscious Lemon" would look great on the dining room walls.

Julia, I'm guessing vanilla milkshake is on your walls?

Jillian, I hope you don't have dickmilch on your walls.

Julia Noran said...

Yup. We also have green tea and burnt toffee on the walls. I had no idea I was so obsessed with paints named for food and drink.
