    I've always bought these in preference to the cheaper vanilla yogurts because they have always been thicker & have more of a vanilla taste. You can tell hey are made with proper vanilla because of the seeds.

    But I bought some this week & they tasted dreadful, realy watery...all of them...not one vanilla seed to be found!!!

    Has anyone else noticed the change?

    I can recommend the Activia Fat Free Vanilla yogurts, if you're looking for a substitute. Made with real vanilla, free on both days and very yummy. :)

    I haven't had the vanilla ones for a while and wont bother now! TBH I don't buy mullers at all unless they are on a good offer as they are too expensive, I get the Activia fat free or WW ones instead

    I agree with you Taz, only buy them now if they're like 4 for a pound. Sainsburys does a regular deal of 4 for £2 which I think is rubbish. Now and again they're half price in Tesco.

    I totally agree that the price of mullers is dreadful, especially now all the Jan offers are over.

    I always buy the cheaper or on offer yogurts for snacking. But I always found that if you could get vanilla in another make then they were watery & tasteless, so I usually just get a few vanilla mullers to add to desserts to give a better flavour...no one was actually allowed to eat them!! LOL

    Thanks for the suggestion of emailing them, I did actually do that yesterday, just after I started the thread, will let you know if I get a reply.

    Where did you buy them from? I know this sounds a bit weird, but I normally buy mine from Sainsbury's, a few months ago Morrison's had that 10 for £2 offer so I got 10 and they were all really watery and tasteless...buying from Sainsbury's again and they're fine!
    Is it like milk? there is a hierarchy with milk, that's why some lasts longer than others (true story!)

    ps will definitely try the Activia, thanks for the tip!
