After our lunch at H.K. Choi, Deb wanted me to try Tutti Frutti yogurt. I’ve seen it before but it was my first time to try it. Tutti Frutti is a specialty frozen yogurt cafe based in the United States with branches all over the world. What makes them different from other yogurt stores is their offering of 50 flavors and over 30 topping varieties.
There was a wall with 4 self serve yogurt machines. There were 2 flavors per machine. When we were there the flavors were blueberry, peanut butter, guava, taro, green apple, original tart, chocolate raspberry and green tea. What I liked about this place was they allowed free samples. I first tried the chocolate raspberry but to my disappointment it tasted like cough syrup. I ended up choosing peanut butter which was so good and creamy. It was a low fat flavor but it tasted very peanut-ty.
After getting your own yogurt you head on to the toppings bar and choose whatever you want to put on your yogurt. I left my yogurt naked, bare and free of any toppings. I didn’t want anything to distract the flavor and smoothness of the yogurt.
Your yogurt creation is then weighed and you pay the price for your gluttony. At P19 per ounce my naked yogurt cost P77.22. I can just imagine over zealous kids filling their cups with different flavors of yogurt and loads of toppings and the bill can easily top P200.
So far I’ve tried Red Mango, White Hat, Yogurbud, Tutti Frutti and Pinkberry (in the US). They’re all similar and I like them all except for Pinkberry which I found way too tart. I like flavored yogurts better than plain ones. They’re also a healthy option but adding loads of toppings will easily make it calorific.
There are so many other brands of frozen yogurt shops in Manila trying to capture a limited market since these yogurts are not cheap. May the best one remain. We will see who that is in a year or two. What’s your favorite frozen yogurt? Tell me about it in the comments section below.
