As it’s February, you may believe that you have escaped the tyranny of the ubiquitous Pumpkin Spiced Latte for another year.
You are mistaken.
Snack: Müller Corner Pumpkin Spiced Latte Yogurt
Bought at: Tesco
Müller have put on their yoga pants and jumped on the pumpkin spiced latte bandwagon to
Basictown Nomville in the hope of creating something innovative and, presumably, delicious.
We are sceptical that this melange of strong flavours is going to come together into something tasty. But of course there is only one way to know… Let’s crack her open!:
The pumpkin spiced bit looks uncannily like McDonald’s sweet & sour sauce. Now my instinct is to dunk chips in it. I am a monster.
After inspecting the sepia tinged innards, Megan declines to lick the lid of life.
Megan: I don’t want to risk catching bloaty head disease!
A valid concern. Those of us who have managed virtual hospitals are all too aware of the difficult process bloaty head sufferers have to withstand in the inflation clinic.
Given that I don’t know what pumpkin spice, or indeed pumpkin tastes of, I decide to taste the yogurt first. It’s rather delicious actually! I really enjoy the tangy, creamy yogurt against the mild coffee flavour. Megan on the other hand finds the tangy coffee a weird experience and does not enjoy it very much.
What of the pumpkin spice corner mix? No. Not really for me. The mix is mildly sweet but very cinnamon heavy and a bit overwhelming on the senses. It also has a jelly-like texture and has a spoon shaped dent in it where we scooped a bit out. Hmmm. I imagine though, that it is a pretty good approximation of the pumpkin spiced latte if that’s your cup of
tea coffee. Megan however really likes the mysterious goop.
Megan: Can I just have this bit?
Yes. Yes you can Megan. We polish off the two sections separately #teamwork
In summary – an unusual combination that will probably delight pumpkin spice latte fans, but wont win any newcomers over to the flavour combo.
