Introducing new Müllerlight Goodies – the latest launch from the UK’s number 1 yogurt brand![1]

Available From 8th March in three delectable flavour combinations, new Müllerlight Goodies is the first ever Müllerlight yogurt with a mix of delicious crunchy pieces on the side, bringing a whole new level of enjoyment, texture and taste to the sumptuous low-fat yogurt. And it’s even more irresistible as each variant of the indulgent, creamy-tasting and crunchy Müllerlight Goodies twin pot is an unbelievable 99 calories or less.

The Müllerlight brand has already begun 2015 on a high, reaching the highest ever 4 weekly share of the Chilled Yogurt and Pot Desserts market of 9.4%, and highest ever retail sales value, selling £16.3m in the same period.[2]

Michael Inpong, Chief Marketing Officer for Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller, says: “The aim is that Müllerlight Goodies will capitalise on the success of the brand already this year. We know that consumers increasingly want new flavours and taste experiences, but aren’t prepared to compromise on fat or calorie content. New Müllerlight Goodies offers them the delicious Müllerlight yogurt they know and love, but now will a side of crunchy “goodies” in a handy twin pot - all low fat and 99 calories or less.”

Variants in the range are lemon yogurt with mini meringue style pieces, strawberry yogurt and white chocolate coated balls, and toffee flavour yogurt with chocolate coated balls for a satisfying crunch. Müllerlight Goodies will be available in single flavour 4 packs with an RRP of £2.69 per pack.
