Banana Flavoured Weetabix

Bananas and Weetabix, a classic combination for adults and children alike at breakfast time, so what's not to love about banana flavoured Weetabix!? 
Unfortunately there are a few things. Upon opening the pack I was greeted by a lovely banana smell that instantly had my mouth watering in anticipation of tasting these new and interesting Weetabix. The flavour itself is somewhat sickly because of how sweet they are, but thinking back on it that may be my fault for me having three so perhaps that isn't the best reflection. The banana was a little artificial tasting and they actually reminded me of foam banana sweets that you could get in Pick & Mix from Woolworths. The texture was typical of regular Weetabix and had they lovely warming and filling properties that you would expect so I was certainly left feeling satisfied until lunch after eating them.

Overall I would recommend trying them especially if you have a sweet tooth, they make a nice change from my normal plain (but tasty) vanilla overnight oats.

Chocolate Toffee Muller Rice

Yesterday whilst I was out shopping I spied yet another new Muller product, this time in the form of a Muller Rice. It has been a while since they have brought out a new rice pudding (or at least one that is suitable for vegetarians) so i made it my mission to locate the chocolate toffee one. 
I was greeted with the lovely smell of the sweet rice pudding with undertones of caramel which was certainly welcome.
I prefer to have my rice pudding heated so I popped it in the microwave for a minute so it was piping hot. The rice pudding bit itself was the same flavour that I expected but the toffee chocolate added a nice flavour too it, albeit a little predictable.
Overall it was nice enough, I wouldn't buy it again but it is certainly worth a try!

Almond Biscuit Muller Greek Corner Yogurt

I always look forward to the new and limited edition muller yogurts because they are always quite unique and innovative. Like the famed Mississippi Mud Pie Muller Corner or the ever so delicious Apple Strudel Muller Rice! 
So when I heard of the new Muller Greek Style corner I was desperate to sample it.
The yogurt was the traditional Muller yogurt which is as always delicious (and I honestly think that they should sell it on its own).
The almond biscuit bit wasn't that nice, it was ridiculously sweet, unpleasantly so. It will probably appeal to you if you like marzipan and things like that but personally I'm just not that big a fan, I thought that it was going to be more like digestive biscuits with flaked pieces of almonds but alas I was disappointed.
I have yet to actually review a Muller yogurt that has impressed me but I will continue to search in vain for this elusive flavour that will blow me away, perhaps the banoffee pie flavour will be more to my liking

Sweet Coconut and Vanilla Propercorn

Whilst I was wandering around Boots looking at all the items in the sale, I couldn't help but notice this bright pink package out of the corner of my eye and was instantly drawn to them! And I am rather glad that I did, because it combined two of my favourite things. Popcorn and coconut. Now I know that this sounds like a bizarre idea but I promise you that it works, and very well at that.
The flavour is sweet and mildly coconutty so that it doesn't overwhelm you, with vanilla being the predominant flavour here.
The popcorn is of the high quality that is to be expected from a brand such as Propercorn and it is relatively low in calories, coming in at only 109 per bag.
