Gone are the days when yogurt was only a few flavours that we easily got bored of. Yoghurt has come a very long way, and even today it continues its journey in keeping us interested in this creamy delight. Welcome to Yogurberry.
The latest being an outlet of only yoghurt, where you could choose and serve your own yoghurt - any amount you want, any flavour you fancy and then go on to add any kind of topping you wish for. This is the Yogurberry way. Yogurberry is the new yoghurt revolution I had heard of, but had not yet gotten the chance to try out...until only recently.
Upon hearing that this yoghurt revolution has reached Norwest, I bundled up my kids in to the car and headed off to Castle Towers where the newest Yogurberry had opened. Yogurberry Castle Hill was not even a couple of days, old but had gained momentum pretty fast. The entire outlet was swarming with patrons happily eating yogurt off pretty pink tubs. I wasn’t surprised at the crowds as it was indeed a most appropriate day for this frozen delight, with temperatures soaring as high as 34 degrees.
It was exactly as I had heard of, and this is how it goes: first we choose the kind of tub we'd like from medium or large. Mind you, there are no small sizes when it comes to Yogurberry. Then we head off to the yoghurt machines, which are lined up for our convenience.
The flavour choices are quite fun. Some are actually never heard of, or at least never tried with yogurt before. These novel flavours range from Taro to coconut, and then on to green tea. Who would have thought there could be a green tea flavoured yoghurt? Yogurberry has it, and I wasn’t going to pass the opportunity to savour it.
I boldly decided to squeeze a dollop of every flavour on offer, just so I could decide which is my personal favourite. It was indeed a difficult choice, as every flavour was second to the other.
My final choice hands down would have to be the purple coloured Taro yogurt with the creamy coconut flavour not far behind. Mango was another flavour that I wouldn’t hesitate to try again. My personal opinion is that every one of the eight flavours on offer were nothing but delightful and worthy of tasting again.
Once we had chosen our flavours and filled our tubs with yoghurt, then we were off to selecting our own toppings. Fruits (as we all already knew) nicely complimented every flavour of yogurt that I had in my tub. Though they have quite a selection of chopped up fruit; yet what actually fascinated me were the not so traditional toppings that were on offer. Cheesecake and red velvet cake as a topping for yogurt? Who would have thought that mushed up red velvet cake paired with creamy coconut yogurt would create a dance in your mouth? Well it did, and the combinations kept coming and surprising me.
Tiny strips of coconut jelly mixed with mango yogurt were nothing but simply divine. There were many more new topping flavours that I would have liked to try, but couldn’t as my medium sized tub was already overflowing with everything that I had heaped up to try. But I was not fussed, as I was sure I would be visiting Yogurberry quite frequently. Thanks to this Yogurberry, and because of you, I have now fallen in love with yogurt all over again.
