Can you tell me about Muller Rice Strawberry Flavour

Müller desserts and yogurts are now a familiar site in the chilled food departments of our supermarkets. The company originated in Bavaria when Ludwig Müller first started his dairy in 1896. I doubt that he thought just how big that company would become.

It wasn’t until 1980 that we were introduced to the Müller Rice range, and they have become a very popular product –especially in my home.

There are seven varieties of Müller Rice, original, apple, smooth toffee, blueberry, vanilla custard, raspberry and my favourite of the bunch, strawberry. To me the strawberry Müller rice is very much like eating the old childhood favourite – creamy rice pudding with a dollop of strawberry jam in the middle!

Müller Rice are actually a product similar to yogurts, and are found with the yogurts in the chilled food section of the supermarket, and are a small plastic pot holding 190g of the delicious dessert, the pot has a foil top and the price is around 60p for an individual pot or £2 for 6, however they are often on multi buy special offers in most supermarkets.

The main thing that I like about these desserts compared to yogurts is that they are good as either a hot or cold treat or dessert – they are equally delicious eaten straight from the fridge nice and cold or refreshing or heated up in the microwave for 70 seconds for a lovely warm treat that makes a great quick and easy dessert.

The rice inside these little pots is creamy and delicious, give it a stir and the rice is soon streaked with the red strawberry jam that’s on the bottom of the pot adding just that little something extra to the dessert in taste, texture and appearance.

These little pots are perfect for packed lunches, picnics or just to have in the fridge when you fancy a sweet treat that is a little different; at 203 calories and 2.5g of saturate fat per pot these are a far healthier way of satisfying that sugar rush than a chocolate bar! When it comes to nutrition these desserts are not as healthy as a low fat yogurt but they certainly do make a lovely change and certainly taste a lot more indulgent than they really are! And to help those of us who are trying to eat a healthy diet, those good people from Müller have now come up with a new product, a pack of six smaller pots of Müller Rice – each pot has 95g of rice in it and contains 103 calorie with 1.2g of saturated fat. These multi-packs are available in the Strawberry variety and also an Apple and Raspberry variety.

So if you haven’t tried these little pots of loveliness yet, do give them a try, I’m sure that you won’t be disappointed!

Burger King the Facts about the second Largest Fast Food Restaurant

Burger King, in their own words, holds the distinction of being known as the second largest fast food restaurant, a reputation of which they should be proud. Coming second to the largest of the fast-food chains, McDonalds, is no shame, but rather suggests an admirable success story that deserves recognition.

With more than 11,000 outlets in 69 countries and US territories, Burger King is no small fry and has risen in strength and reputation since it’s small beginnings in Miami, Florida way back in 1954. The strength of the corporation is evidenced in sales for the year 2007, a staggering $13.232 billion system wide.

Burger King estimate that they receive more than 11 million visitors to their restaurants worldwide on a daily basis. The growth of the company in just over 50 years is massive. A company that was founded in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton, and with it’s corporate headquarters still in Miami, Florida, is now a worldwide concern.

Burger King has of course become known for The Whopper, first introduced in 1957 and which has quickly became one of the best-known burgers in the world. According to the Burger King website, “there are 221,184 possible ways for a guest to order an Original whopper sandwich”.

Their mission statement is presented on their website in these words:

“The Burger King Corporation moves proudly into the future with over 50 years of experience tucked safely under our belt. As a brand, our company has never been stronger. We’ve got millions of customers, who we love to bits. And our Executive Team, along with each of our individual employees, ensure our customers always receive exceptional, consistent service (as well as burgers, fries and drinks.)”

Burger King as company, accept and advertise themselves as the second largest fast-food restaurant chain in the world, a fact they can be proud of. As a company, they have come a very long way since 1954.
