Review: Muller FrutUp Luscious Lemon Lowfat Yogurt with Fruit Mousse

So my massive Muller review series ends with this review.  Well, it ends at least for now.  I'm sure I'll pick up more flavors in the future, but for now, I'm a little worn out.  So, with the finish line in site, it's time to take a look at this Muller FrutUp Luscious Lemon Lowfat Yogurt with Fruit Mousse.  Like a lot of the others, I picked this up during the Kroger debut sale for $1.00.  Out of all the yogurts I've reviewed, it's the most calorie heavy with 130 calories and six grams of protein packed into the typical 5.3 ounce cup, which look like a Dairy Queen Peanut Buster Parfait cup to me (MMMM...Dairy Queen).

There's not a lot to these cups that I haven't covered before.  The base of the cup is just the typical lowfat plain yogurt.  On top of that is the fruit mousse, which in this case is lemon and has kind of a faded yellow coloring as opposed to a vibrant yellow.  The lemon mousse smells strongly of lemon and when you mix it up, it's consistency actually reminds me of a lemon ice sweet treat in that it seems slushy and somewhat airy.  When mixed with the yogurt, the mousse maintains itself and doesn't break up in the mix, so it's clear that you'll be eating two different components as you are plowing your way though this cup.

In terms of the taste, the yogurt is basic and that's all the time I'm going to waste on that.  The lemon mousse, on the other hand, had quite a bit of flavor.  Remember the lemon ice comparison from the last paragraph, well I'm going to use it again.  Obviously the mousse didn't have that icy quality, but in terms of texture and taste, it tasted just like a tart and sweet lemonade and being that I've been a big fan of lemonade dating all the way back to my childhood, I was a big fan of that.  One thing of note though is that the mousse on its own could possibly be too tart and make your lips pucker a bit, but that's where the basic plain yogurt comes in to save the day.  The yogurt works as what I'll describe as a cooling agent in that it tones down the tartness of the lemon mousse and makes this one a tart and cooling treat that also happens to be delicious.  What I found interesting was that when the yogurt and mousse was mixed together, it was almost as if I was eating a lemon meringue and while that may not be all that notable, it was at least interesting to me.

Buy It or Fly By It?  I found this to be particularly delicious, so I would give this a strong BUY IT rating.  When I compared this to a lemon meringue above, it was almost as if I had warped my mind into thinking that I was eating a pie and eating pies is never a bad thing.  Well, okay, eating pies is not healthy, but if you are going to be unhealthy, it is definitely awesome.  That little detour aside, if you want a "healthy" version of a pie, try out this FrutUp cup for an almost approximation.
