The summer is heating up and it is definitely the season for frozen treats. I love stopping in for some kind of cold sweet something after an activity with my kids or with the whole family on a summer’s evening. That’s what summer’s for, right?
Yogurtland is one of those awesome places where you get to serve up a frozen yogurt creation of your own making! You get some little sample cups, try out all the flavors (and in my case, I literally mean all the flavors) to your heart’s content, then fill up your bowl with any and all of your favorite frozen yogurts and toppings. Pay is by the ounce.
I got to go to the Orem location yesterday for a Utah Blogger’s Meet-up and tried so many flavors. They have a couple new flavors Blue Lychee Bliss (a tart flavor with lychee & blueberry) & Almond Midnight Mocha (double dark chocolate, almond, & mocha). I gave the Blue Lychee bliss a try, and it was indeed tart. I always think the “tart” flavors taste more like regular yogurt, with the sweet flavors tasting more like ice cream. Just my opinion (like everything on this blog, right?) I usually go more for the sweet flavors.
On this visit my favorite yogurt flavors were Oatmeal Cookies, Pistachio and Pecans & Pralines (swirled together), and Toasted Coconut. There weren’t any I didn’t like, though.
The toppings are incredible with candy, fruit, nuts, syrups, and unique little things like sweet mochi bits (chewy, sweet little rice cakes) and boba balls (see the pink-colored balls on my yogurt? They were fruity bursts of joy). My favorites were the fruit and little cheesecake bites.
(By the way, it is hard to describe mochi & boba…if you haven’t had them, just try them sometime…maybe at Yogurtland so you can try just a couple & see if you like them. They’re not as strange as they sound.)
I also loved that they had plenty of seating and a self-serve water stand with pretty strawberries floating in it. Ice cream and frozen yogurt always make me thirsty.
