The OC: Self Serve Yogurt


YogurtlandWhen my friend Emily who lives in the Bay Area heard I was going to be in Costa Mesa she said, “you have GOT to try Yogurtland, it’s the best frozen yogurt ever and it’s self  serve and you can put as many different toppings as you like, and, and, and…” She was very excited about Yogurtland so I looked it up as soon as I got here and discovered there was one near my parents house. Although, I found it strange that they list it as a Newport Beach address when it is actually in Costa Mesa. Maybe their thinking is people from Newport Beach spend more money so let’s pretend we are in Newport Beach and if you are not from here you probably would never notice but, whatever…

Plus, it is so incredibly hot and humid here in OC this week a frozen yogurt sounded pretty good to me.

Emily was right. Yogurtland is great! You come in and grab a big bowl. Your choice of bowls is big and bigger. I would have liked to see a small or junior size bowls but since you get to fill it yourself and decide exactly how much you want I guess big is okay, it leaves room for the toppings. They offer a huge choice of yogurt, I decided to try 3 different flavors: Dutch Chocolate, Cookies & Cream, and Plain Tart. Plain Tart is my favorite but I couldn’t resist trying the other flavors. They also have some unique flavors such as Taro and Green Tea. The topping bar was endless… full of fresh fruit, nuts, candy, cereal and probably other things. I was focused on the fresh fruit. I had mango, strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe and blueberries.

Yogurtland charges by weight. I think it was .30 cents an ounce.

I just discovered Yogurtland is also in the San Francisco Bay Area. They have a location in Berkeley! I think Emily and I will be taking a field trip to Berkeley soon.
