Hop In The Fro-Yo Wagon!

Hop In The Fro-Yo Wagon!

Thursday, April 9, 2009

Everyone has been noticing the frozen yogurt craze, a.k.a. fro-yo. Seems more and more people have joined in the wagon. And so I wanted to find out if there was a difference in taste among the various brands.
Lulu Belle counter
I entered Lulu Belle in the Power Plant mall and ordered their Strawberry and Natural Yogurt (P80), which was twisted and that reminded me of McDonald's twirl sundae. It tasted very fresh, especially the strawberries with its tartness and sweetness mixing on your palate. You can also opt for the green tea flavor which can also be mixed in with natural yogurt.

My daughter chose to have an ice cream instead of a yogurt (she doesn't like them and thinks they're too sour for her taste). Their Chocolate Ice Cream (P70) was much too chocolatey for me and I'm glad we had ordered toppings of candy sprinkles to even out the richness of the flavor.

The White Hat was in Rustan's Supermarket, Glorietta. It offers just the basic Natural Yogurt (P85) plus a lot of toppings to choose from like fruits, candies, chocolates and cookies.

I tried adding 3 toppings (P45) and chose the chocolate chips, M&M's and cherries. Weird combination right? It was actually my daughter who chose it and was adamant about it, only to taste half a spoonful and let me finish the rest of it on my own. Suffice it to say, she still wasn't changing her mind about yogurt anytime soon. Although their yogurt really is more on the sour side.

Yoh-gurt Froz can usually be seen inside branches of Hobbes and Landes. There's one in Bonifacio High Street, Greenbelt 5, and Shangri-La Plaza.

Like the White Hat, they only offer the Natural Yogurt (P80) and a selection of fruits, chocolates, and candies for the Toppings (P40).

I got the chocolate chips (they're really my favorite chocolate toppings), M&M's and candy sprinkles as forced upon (again!) by my daughter, which (you guessed right), she didn't even taste. I liked this better than the White Hat's though because it's a bit sweeter, the taste is more balanced, you can forget that it's 98% fat-free.

It was interesting and good to see a yogurt cart in Salcedo Saturday Market. They offer several flavored yogurts (P65) like Mango, Chocolate, Passion Fruit and Wild Berries, and I enjoyed every variant, even the natural one. The consistency is like that of an ice cream but the naturalness of the taste is that of a yogurt. Very different from the mall-based ones but very delightful nonetheless.
Fro Yo
I'm not a fan of yogurt before. But trying these natural, smooth frozen desserts with a whole world of toppings made me change my mind. Plus the fact that they're fat free, low calorie, no cholesterol, with prebiotics and probiotics, simply put, healthy, well that's another reason to enjoy one.

I hated yogurt with a passion when I was a kid, and it's really surprising that I'm really in love with it now. Admittedly, the yogurts now aren't as sour as they were when I was young. Then again, maybe my tastes just changed?

Anyway, I'm loyal to White Hat. I love that they have just the right amount of sourness to their Froyo. And their toppings? The best! If ever you want to try them again, go for the homemade granola, the walnut strudel, the homemade brownie and the homemade cheesecake. YUM!
