Review: Muller Dessert Inspired Raspberry Brownie Supreme Yogurt

It seems like I've exhausted the yogurt category at most of my regular grocery stores (normal chains like Kroger, Meijer, etc.; I know there's a TON of other stuff at the niche chains like Fresh Market, etc.) and since that's where I do the overwhelming majority of my shopping, I love it when a new yogurt pops up.  That was the case with a couple of new Muller Dessert Inspired products that I spotted on a recent trip to Kroger.  Muller already has a line of Ice Cream inspired yogurts, so apparently they are going all out on dessert with this new line.  Those Ice Cream Inspired reviews got me intrigued for this Muller Dessert Inspired Raspberry Brownie Supreme Yogurt that I was able to pick up on sale for $1.00.  Each container is 5.3 ounces and has 210 calories with seven grams of protein.

All I'm going to contribute to this description is that it is in the typical two part container design and that the raspberries were decent-sized and the brownie chunks (cubes) were also decent-sized.  Everything smelled like I'd expect as well.  I'll leave the rest to Muller because their description is so much more fun than anything I could do:  "Is there anything more irresistible than a pan of chewy, fudgy brownies? We don’t think so. Our new Raspberry Brownie Supreme yogurt blends a layer of yummy lowfat yogurt with tart raspberries and chewy brownie pieces… yes, brownie pieces! It’s the perfect way to satisfy your craving for brownies without the risk of eating the whole pan!"

In terms of flavor, this tasted pretty much like I would have expected it too.  The yogurt itself had a degree of tartness to it and when I stirred in the raspberry mix, that brought some sweetness and some texture difference as well since the small chunks of raspberry broke up the creaminess of the yogurt.  The next thing to test, and perhaps the most important, was the brownie chunks (cubes) and they were a bit harder than I would have expected.  Still chewy and with definite chocolate flavor, but just plain strange.  They even bordered on being a bit dry.  But, when mixed in with the yogurt combination, the dryness because less of an issue as the yogurt hydrated each cube.  That chocolate then mixed up the texture (of course) and brought some rich chocolate flavor to each bite that included one or more of the cubes.

Buy It or Fly By It?  All in all, this was about what I could have expected.  Not particularly fantastic, but a solid and tasty performer.  Everything performed as I would have hoped, so I'll give this a BUY IT rating.  If you are looking for a healthy(ish) dessert, I think that this could probably be a good option for you if you see it in your local store.
