CHICAGO, Ill., July 11, 2013
CHICAGO, Ill., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Summertime just got a whole lot
hotter as Muller Quaker Dairy teams up with actress Malin Akerman to unveil
four cool new flavors timed to its national debut this July. Muller® FrutUp™
Mango, Muller® FrutUp™ Orange, Muller® Greek Corner® Pineapple Passion Fruit
and Muller® Greek Corner® Mango are the newest varieties to join the lineup of
Muller yogurts now available at grocery stores nationwide.
Bursting with fresh fruit aroma and vibrant color coupled with a creamy,
delicious yogurt, the four new varieties feature a delightful combination of
flavors and textures with the nutritional benefits of yogurt. All Muller
yogurts are made with reduced-fat milk and all varieties are a good source of
calcium and protein.
Akerman is helping spread the word about Muller yogurt to the U.S. After
welcoming her first child in April and recently signing on to star in her
first TV series with ABC's "Trophy Wife," Akerman has set out to shape up for
summer. With two new important roles keeping her busy, she wants to make
nutritious choices without sacrificing time, taste or nutrition.
"Now more than ever, I appreciate the little delights in each day. For me,
that's everything from getting to spend extra time with my family to enjoying
my favorite snack during a break on set," said Akerman. "I fell in love with
Muller yogurt because it's a delicious, nutritious snack that's easy to grab
Malin has these tips for savoring summer:
oDon't Skip Breakfast. It's important to start the day off right. Breakfast
gives me the energy I need to start my day and keeps me from caving into
all the bad options on set when hunger hits mid-morning.
oA Moment of Bliss. No matter how hectic the day gets, remember to take a
break for the little things that make you happy. Right now, I'm loving new
Muller FrutUp Mango, a creamy yogurt topped with whipped fruit mouse. I
savor every bite.
oTake a Stroll: I always try to stay active. I love going on walks with my
husband and son. I just put my baby in his stroller and we're off!
oPlay Guessing Games: I like to keep my muscles guessing so I'm always
changing up my exercise routine. You can find me at a cycling class or
oBuddy-up: I really enjoy exercising outside in the summer. I like to grab
a friend and go for a hike; it's nice to keep each other on track.
"We're excited about our association with Malin Akerman because she's a
natural fit for Muller yogurt. She's a new mom with a zest for life and a busy
schedule to boot, so she understands the importance of getting delicious
nutrition on the go," said Barb Yehling, chief marketing officer, Muller
