Review: Muller Strawberries and Cream Yogurt

I mentioned in my prior Muller review that they had done a good job of sneaking more of their oddly shaped containers into my local Meijer by producing a new product line.  A product line that advertises that it's really fatty as it proudly proclaims it is 6% milkfat on the container.  Kind of spits in the face of conventional logic in my mind as it seems most products want to advertise that they are leaner.  I guess that fattiness is why the denote these as "Ice Cream Inspired" on their website.  Anyway, I picked up this container of Muller Strawberries and Cream Yogurt for $1.29 and it is what seems to be the industry standard 5.3 ounces.  It's also packed with 170 calories and six grams of protein.

When I opened this up, there wasn't a lot to look at or to smell.  Basically, it was just a pinkish colored yogurt with slivers of strawberries mixed sporadically throughout.  It did have a slight smell of strawberry, but it was primarily made of up of the yogurt/dairy smell that we are all accustomed to.  Really, the only thing of note was that this was especially thick and creamy, which I'm sure had to do with the fact that this had a higher fat content than most yogurts.

I've got to say that the flavor was just as boring as the appearance of this.  There was an extremely minimal amount of strawberry flavor that had a bit of tangy sweetness and also a tiny, tiny amount of cream flavor that had a sugary sweetness.  Both of those were really just an aftertaste as this was mostly just a taste of yogurt that overpowered all other attempts at trying to bring flavor to this.

Buy It or Fly By It?  I feel like I'm cheating by writing such a short review, but it's tough to write a review about a product that basically tastes and looks like nothing, despite it's best intentions.  It's for those reasons that this gets a FLY BY IT rating.  Strawberries and cream were a nice idea that sounded really appealing to me, but the lack of delivery in the instance of this yogurt cup was particularly sad and disappointing.
