roll out the bunting, drum roll please, as muller replied…

Yes! Remember my deliciously sassy letter to the Muller Customer Services line? You should do, it wasn’t bad. Click here for a refresher but essentially I fired off a letter proclaiming them to be amazing and suggesting some new flavours. I made the letter interesting, put a bit of humour into it and tried to bring a smile to whoever opened it up. I expected a nice personal reply and well…


I’m not going to fib – Mrs Pounds, I’m sure you’re a lovely lady, but that response was a bit dry. They did stick £2 into the letter which was nice but as Paul seems deadset on spending my entire monthly wage on After-Eight flavour yoghurts, it won’t go far!

I’ll be doing another letter next week.

As an update – I’ve been working 16 / 17 hour days at the moment with work and it’s proving to be a bit of a knacker – certainly, I haven’t seen Paul and there’s only so many times you can look at a Subway salad served with all the grace and elan of a shitting dog and be enthused. So tonight I ordered Wagamamas to eat at my desk and felt like a king. Not going to lie, it’s probably about a billion syns (though I swapped the oil for low-sodium soy sauce and it was grilled chicken on the noodles, so maybe not too bad). I hope I get back on with the recipes tomorrow.

As an aside, how lovely was this – I asked Him Indoors to make me a nice tea for when I got in last night at close to midnight – he had made gnocchi Slimming World style and left it warming. He might fart like a dying buffalo but he’s good at heart.


70 mullerlight yoghurts

now, since I was working overtime yesterday, I sent Paul to the shops to ‘stock up the fridge’. This is what he came back with.


That’s seventy yoghurts. Well no, you can’t see 70, but the bloody salad drawer, drinks shelf and egg shelf are also full of yoghurts. Great work! Still, it gave me an idea, so I fired off a letter to Muller, as seen below:


Haha! Muller yoghurts are perfect for a free or a low-syn snack, and even better, if you stick them in the freezer, it’ll take you an age to eat them and you get an ‘ice-cream’ feeling. Don’t get me wrong, compared to eating dulce de leche Häagen-Dazs, it’s like switching from Andrex to Izal, but if it scratches that itch…

Be careful though – the Muller Rice and Muller Corner yoghurts are full of syns. You’re looking for lights and lights only. Rule of thumb is if it has cheesecake bits, it’ll add an extra syn or so, but most of the ‘plain’ fruit flavours are good to go. A sprinkling of chocolate doesn’t equal a syn!

Enjoy. Weigh-in chat tomorrow and a new recipe card (I’ve made two tonight!)
