Los Angeles: Yogurtland

by gigi on December 11, 2007

As if we weren’t stuffed enough from our eating extravaganza at Taiko, we went for dessert next door at Yogurtland. Actually, UK and NTR were too full but I wanted to give the frozen yogurt here a try. :) Yogurtland is one of the new frozen yogurt joints following in the spirit of Pinkberry and Red Mango. I’ve never been to either Pinkberry or Red Mango but have heard several rave reviews so figured that Yogurtland was my chance to get in on the fro-yo action. :)

Yogurtland is different from the other frozen yogurt places in that it is almost completely self-serve. As soon as you walk in, you see that there are a wall of self-serve frozen yogurt machines with flavours ranging from green tea, pistachio, mango, straberry, etc. There is also a small station where you can add your toppings, such as fresh fruit, candies, or chocolate. I should have taken a picture of the inside because it was quite interesting but you get the general idea. :) Your whole creation is than weighed at the counter. At $0.30 per ounce, this is a really good deal.

I selected a combination of pistachio and green tea for my choice with no toppings. I was really full from lunch at this point so just wanted to try a small sampling. My whole order came out to just over $1. :) I wasn’t too good at swirling my frozen yogurt so the picture below doesn’t look so hot. :)

The pistachio had a distinct pistachio taste but was a bit too sweet for me. I liked the green tea more, which had a light and refreshing taste. The green tea flavour wasn’t too strong and I think this would have gone really well if I had added some toppings. :)

I think there is a real potential to open a frozen yogurt place like this in the Vancouver area. The taste is comparable to what is available at Yogen Fruz but at a much lower price. I also like the self-serve aspect at Yogurtland, which allows you to mix and match different flavours until you find one that suits you. :)
