Muller Greek Corner & FrutUp Review

Fro-yo girl here. Muller Yogurt, the German yogurt brand, was introduced to the US market earlier this year by Quaker. The yogurt is currently made in Germany but production will shift to upstate NY later this year. All Muller yogurt products are certified Kosher and have live and active cultures.

I spotted Muller Corner, Muller Greek Corner and FrutUp at my local Safeway store. Muller Corner features lowfat yogurt and a topping (fruit or cereal) in a separate compartment. Greek  Corner is similar only with Greek style yogurt. FrutUp features lowfat yogurt topped with a fruit mousse. I liked the sound of some of the toppings, including choco balls, choco flakes, crispy crunch cereal clusters and caramelized almonds.

* Muller Greek Corner with caramelized almonds. I really liked the lowfat Greek yogurt. It was rich, creamy, thick, whipped, lightly sweetened, and tangy with a sour aftertaste. I really appreciated how it wasn't that sweet and I loved the crunchy tiny sweetened bits of caramelized almonds. One cup is 5.3 ounces, 220 calories and 9 grams of fat. Safeway had Muller Greek Corner on sale, 10 for $10 or $1.39 regular price. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

* Muller Corner with choco balls: It's plain, sweetened yogurt. The yogurt is not as thick as their Greek version (though still thick and creamy) and it's way sweeter (too sweet for me). I really liked those small crunchy white and milk chocolate crunchy balls (with crispy rice centers). Safeway had Muller Corner on sale, 10 for $10. 4 out of 5 stars.

* Muller FrutUp luscious lemon flavor. It's the same lowfat lightly sweetened plain yogurt with a layer of lemon fruit mousse. The fruit mousse was a soft gel and quite sweet. I stirred it with the yogurt and still found it too sweet. It was nicely tangy and very thick and creamy. A single serving is 150 calories. Muller FrutUp was 10 for $10 at Safeway. 4 out of 5 stars.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
