I will be honest and say I am a bit behind with the whole frozen yoghurt craze, and had never tried any until today. I was allured into a bright candy pink and fluro green world that is all things yoghurt at Yogurt Heaven in Penrith, and as a result I am totally hooked.
Endless choice of toppings
Welcome to Yogurt Heaven
Yogurt Heaven reminds me of the old candy store’s with roof lined dispensers where you would go around and fit as many lollies into a cup, meets a Japanese gaming arcade hall. Bright, energetic and bursting with new and exciting flavours. The walls are painted in bright colours matched with futuristic designed furniture thats both inviting and modern with loud pop tunes blaring through the speakers.
Bright and inviting
Funky and Futuristic
As this was my first ever visit to a frozen yogurt store, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. There was a variety of cups from small, medium and large with an extensive variety of yogurt flavours. The delicious choices range from traditional flavours like original, caramel, chocolate and strawberry to slightly more fruity and exciting varieties like Taro, mango, watermelon, bubblegum and coconut.
Yoghurt choices from traditional to exotic
Coconut and Watermelon Yoghurts
Choosing which flavour combo to go with is one of the hardest decisions to make, as you are more than spoilt for choice. The toppings cater to a multitude of taste buds. For the fruit lovers try the fresh kiwi, strawberries, mango, pomegranate and passionfruit. For the old school lolly lovers try the gummy bears, strawberries and cream, hundreds and thousands, chocolate sprinkles, nerds and chocolate coated peanuts. To add a bit of crunch there's coconut, cashews, slithered almonds, and a mixture of nuts.
Fresh and fruity toppings
I decided to go with a tropical mixture of flavours, starting with the coconut and mango yoghurts, topped with these fruit juice popping balls, fresh mango, strawberry and passionfruit served with a sprinkling of dried coconut. I could not have had a more refreshing treat on a 38-degree day. Everything was fresh and absolutely delicious.
Tropical flavours - perfect for summer
I also tried the bubblegum and original yoghurt flavours, and these too were luscious and fresh in flavour, with the bubblegum tasting accurately like the gum balls you get from the corner store machines for 20 cents.
Bubble gum and fruit juice ball combo was fun
When it comes to pricing, the yoghurts are charged on a weight basis. For my small cup serving it costs $5.40 which I thought was reasonable given the generous serving size. For the larger sizes you are looking at about $10.
The staff greeted everyone as they came in with a warm welcome, and they're more then happy to help out with any questions and assist as required.
Dine in or take away
As you can tell, I now will be flying the frozen yoghurt flag, and Yogurt Heaven is definitely a must visit for those wanting a great selection, in tandem with a bright and inviting atmosphere for a fun outing.
