Blackcurrant & Liquorice Muller Light Yoghurt (Asda) By @cinabar
I do like something sweet after my main meal in an evening. This doesn’t have to be a calorie laden dessert, sometimes a lower fat yoghurt is enough to suffice my sweet tooth. On my wander around Asda I thought I’d see if there were any new flavours from Muller in their Light edition. I spotted this Blackcurrant and Liquorice variety and tentatively picked it up. I like blackcurrant, but don’t eat much liquorice at all, it's not that I don’t like the stuff, its just not a favourite sweet of mine.
The yoghurt is a pale lilac colour, and looked and smelt quite pleasant. The texture is fairly thick (for a yoghurt) and very creamy. The flavour was sweet, but not too sharp. Blackcurrant dominated my tastebuds and the flavour was very pleasant. The liquorice taste added its dark flavour more as an aftertaste, and I have to admit it wasn’t bad, but it felt misplaced in a yoghurt.
The more I ate the more I tried to work out what the flavour reminded me of, and the answer came as cough sweets. As a kid if I had a sore throat or cough the soothing sweets I was given were blackcurrant and liquorice flavoured, once I realised this I found it hard to get past it, and it meant that I probably wouldn’t buy them again. Thats the problem with taste, it is a very personal thing, and the complexities of what an individual does and doesn’t like is linked backed to experiences, which is why it is hard to please everyone! I shouldn’t complain, the yoghurt flavour did what it said on the tin.
