At Yogurtland, you can only anticipate the freshest and purest yogurt made from Californian milk without any added antibiotics or hormones. Insert the finest ingredients in their frozen yogurt and the result is a delicious cream base with the consistency of a soft-serve ice cream.
Based in twenty states across the United States and several other countries, Yogurtland is fast becoming one of the most popular yogurt chains. And they should be, since their frozen yogurt has over 200 customisable flavours with low-fat, non-fat and even gluten-free alternatives to choose from.
Instead of the usual counter stalls that most yogurt brands have, Yogurtland’s interior is styled after a typical cafe, filled with ample seating areas for patrons to enjoy their yogurt cups. The great thing about them is the attention to detail, catering to customers’ needs with charging ports and photo taking booths available throughout the store.
With an extensive selection of toppings, customers can select from over 30 choices to pair their yogurt cups with, including freshly cut fruits and bobas.
If you have a sweeter tooth, you can also opt for their more sinful toppings, such as chocolate bits and gummy bears, among many others.
With a self-serve policy, customers get to choose their own yogurt flavours before pulling on the spigots controlling the yogurt machine. Prices are all charged based on the combined weightage of the yogurt and toppings. It typically costs $3 per 100g.
Opting for a fruity combination, we went with the Kiwi Raspberry Sorbet ($6) and paired it with fresh blueberries and strawberries.
The taste of the sorbet was light and refreshing, yet it somehow managed to retain the right amount of creaminess at the same time. You really can’t go wrong with anything fruity.
Changing it up and going for something heavier, we decided to try the Dutch Chocolate ($6.30). And in our opinion, there’s no better topping to complement it than having Reese’s chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.
While this may look like a sinful combination, the Dutch chocolate is actually made from natural cocoa, so it has a milder taste compared to most.
The yogurt machine also has a function that allows customers to mix two different flavours together so we decided to test that out.
We went for the classic Plain yogurt mixed with Alphonsus Mango Tart ($8.40) and added strawberry and mango bobas on top.
The result is a chilled treat that is natural tasting and aromatic smelling. We could taste the real mangoes in the yogurt, unlike most that are made from artificial flavourings. The plain yogurt really did live up to our expectations, as well.
With flavours changing every two weeks, you can always expect something different each time you patronise Yogurtland. Holding up to eight flavours at any one time, all of them are customisable to your personal preference and taste.
Feel free to go crazy with creating your yogurt cups, just be careful not to over-do it because your yogurt might end up being seriously overpriced.
