Japanator Recommends: Yogurtland

0

Frozen yogurt is one of the healthier snacks you could consume. It's not as heavy as custard, and or as thick as ice cream and there are added benefits such as helping with digestion, and lactose intolerance, making it particularly popular in Asia. We've seen all sorts of contenders vying for this market, from Pinkberry--who may be one of the better vendors--to Golden Spoon, which I loathe. However, Yogurtland is part of a new trend that's set to take down the competition featuring a self-service format. How popular is it might you ask? Within a few years, it's floated to several new states, and has even opened shop in Japan and Okinawa!

Charging by the ounce, Yogurtland, and it's various clones throughout California, provide as many as 16 different flavors, sometimes more depending on location, from fruit tarts, to staples like chocolate, mint, and cheesecake. Occasionally you'll run into flavors such as Asian pear, taro, or azuki bean, all of which are absolutely delicious in their own right.

Of course, the yogurt itself is only half of the experience. Each Yogurtland comes equipped with a slew of toppings for you to add to your creation, which includes everything from fruity pebbles, nuts, oreos, mochi balls, to fresh fruit and more. This sounds like it'd be pricey, I'm sure, but it really isn't. They've somehow managed to keep prices at a mere $0.30 an ounce, with it's competition around $0.30-$0.34. This often runs me about $2.50 for a serving, though a full cup can run you about $3-$4 depending on what you pile on. Fruit typically weighs more, but I'd say it's worth it. Our staff has become addicted, so much so that it's now going to be a staple for any event we have to attend on this coast.

If you're planning on visiting California anytime soon, or just want to know if one has openned up in a city near you, you can check out their website for list of locations.
