Yogurtland in Fullerton...
Has anyone been to Yogurtland in Fullerton on State College and Chapman? Anyone know how it compares to Golden Spoon? Thanks!
I haven't been- actually I didn't even know about it! I go to school near there so you've definitely intrigued me. If you go, please review- I'd love to hear about it. Since school's out for summer I won't be out that way for another month or two but I might make a special trip if it's good. I love fro yo!
Thanx for posting!
I haven't been to Golden Spoon so I can't compare for you. My husband and I went about two months after Yogurtland opened. The place was packed. He and I tried 6 different yogurts. They were all gross. -Bad enought that we threw it all away! Normally, I would have bitched about it but ate it anyway. My guess is that it was busy because they have free wi-fi.
Yogurtland may be more of a teen hangout than an attempt to provide high quality frozen yogurt, but I think it was all right.
I paid a visit this afternoon and found that they're more than a forzen yogurt shop. They're also a a Bobaloca - so they serve milk tea, slushies with Asian flavors (like taro!) and they have some generic pastries.
As for their yogurt, they have around 10-12 varieties along one wall with flavors like green tea, pistachio, peanut butter, cookies and cream, georgia peach, chocolate, strawberry, plain yogurt, etc. The way it works is you grab a cup and you fill it with the yogurt of your choice. Then there's a little topping station with things like cookie dough, chocolate sprinkles, granola, butterfingers (crushed), oreo cookies (crushed), and some cereal. They also have a little station with real fruit! Mango, strawberry, blackberries, banana, etc. And they have 3 types of liquid topping - caramel, chocolate, and I don't remember the last.
You then take your concoction up to the cashier who weighs it and you pay $0.30 an ounce.
I tried their peanut butter and cookies and cream flavors. Perhaps I have a higher tolerance for foods with artificial flavorings, but I thought they were decent. Especially for a nonfat food. The peanut butter even had a bit of the yogurt tang underneath.
Yogurtland was perhaps a bit more creamy than the golden spoon, but there's not that big of a difference. I suppose if you don't like one, you won't find the other much better. But I like The Golden Spoon... not all their flavors as I've found their lemon to be extremely chemical-y tasting...
But Yogurtland is open late (12am on most days!) and if you need a quick fix, it's a decent option.
