Review: Muller Corner Lowfat Yogurt with Choco Balls

With the exception of Peach Passion Fruit, which sounds disgusting to me, I think I've bought and reviewed possibly every single flavor of Muller yogurt that Kroger (at least mine) has in stock.  In bottoming out that supply, I picked up this Muller Corner Lowfat Yogurt with Choco Balls in a previously mentioned 11/$10 sale, so it came in at roughly $0.91.  Like the other Corner yogurt products was divided into two compartments of purported goodness and the total weight of the product was 5.3 ounces.  Calorie-wise, it comes in with 210 calories and nine grams of protein.

As you might expect with a Corner product, it has the typical lowfat vanilla yogurt in one compartment with the add-in in the other compartment.  In the case of this one, it's Choco Balls, which I would kind of describe like the Whoppers malt ball candy.  If you look at the packaging of this,  you'd expect something that is maybe not quite as big as Whoppers, but definitely has good size.  Instead, what you get is a bunch of chocolate and vanilla pellet sized malt ball candies with a variety of milk chocolate and white chocolate.  I admit that I was slightly disappointed by this because while I didn't expect big Choco Balls, I was expecting more than this.  That said, when I poured them into the yogurt, there were a larger amount of them in the compartment than I would have expected, so what they lacked in size, they made up for in quantity.

In terms of taste, the vanilla yogurt was pretty much what you'd expect in that it had nice, strong vanilla flavor and that's really all there is to write about that.  As for the Choco Balls, they really work like mini-Whoppers.  The milk chocolate balls had a nice and rich milk chocolate flavor with an airy crunch due to the malt ball interior and the white chocolate balls had a nice sweet taste with any airy crunch in their exterior as well.  When mixed with the vanilla yogurt, these balls provided a rich and sweet contrast to the vanilla yogurt and made what could be considered a boring product on some days pretty fun to go through as the airy crunch definitely broke up the texture of the semi-creamy yogurt.

Buy It or Fly By It?  This is a nice, safe flavor and frankly, it's kind of fun to eat and gets a BUY IT rating.  It's more of a dessert-type product than a healthy product because of the candy add-ins, but sometimes eating something fun under the weak guise of being healthy is okay and this product fits that bill perfectly.  Kids would probably love something fun like this and big kids, like this guy, definitely would enjoy this too.  The only complaint, albeit very small (pun intended), is I wish the size of the Choco Balls was larger, but if they were, that may have turned out to be kind of an absurd situation.
