I’ve been wanting to try Yogurtland forever. I love this concept of a self-serve frozen yogurt shop with a loaded topping bar, all priced by weight. At 39 cents an ounce, you can get as little as you want, and as many flavors and toppings as you want. It’s perfect for people like me who like to try a little bit of a lot of things.
They have a wide selection of yogurt flavors to choose from. Sample cups are available upon request so you can try the different flavors before committing.
The topping bar is AWESOME, loaded with every topping you can think of (except for my favorite whipped cream), with a strong focus on fresh fruits like blueberries, strawberries, kiwifruit, mango, and lychee. You could actually make a lovely fruit cup out of the spread.
I was about to take a photo of the second half of the topping bar when an employee approached me and said “Excuuuse me, you’re not allowed to take pictures in this area”. Why not? Is it because it’s such a mind-blowingly simple business model that’s so easily replicable and they’re afraid that if not kept top secret, competitors will pop up all over? Psst… somebody should break it to them that it’s a little too late for that…
But anyway, here’s my hubby’s cup: orange creamsicle yogurt with mochi, strawberry yogurt with cookie dough bites, and chocolate yogurt with Reese’s peanut butter cups.
Here’s my cup: classic tart yogurt with strawberries and kiwi, mango yogurt with fresh mango, and NY cheesecake yogurt with rainbow sprinkles, chocolate chips and a lychee. I was trying to make three mini parfaits in the same cup.
I’m happy to have finally made my yogurtland debut – it was a blast. $5.46 for the yogurt, but the fun is priceless!
