  1. So, is this place going to be Pinkberry-style ?

      Yes and no. While they have a tart yogurt flavor, and geen tea too, they follow the model of self serve out of spouts at $0.30/ounce.

      Here's a picture of the one in Fullerton:

        I went to the Irvine store last night on arisu's tip (after checking on it every week since they started construction), and it's every bit as good as the Fullerton one. And a lot prettier too.

        And here's a picture of the recently opened IRVINE YOGURTLAND:

          Wow it looks so different from the Fullerton one! :P I can't wait to go try out the new location :) Thanks for the pictures!

    2. We went yesterday - there were about a dozen flavors. I'd never had Pinkberry or Yogurtland before, but know about the tart original yogurt flavor because I've been looking for it here (closest was Humphrey's Yogart). My favorite is still Cafe Lalo in NYC where the original yogurt tasted like "frozen" yogurt.

      The original yogurt flavor at Yogurtland tasted more processed. Good without being great. I tried probably about 6-7 flavors (original, blueberry yogurt, strawberry yogurt, green tea, vanilla, banana yogurt, etc.) - I liked the original best. The toppings were really fresh. It was about $9.50 for two good-sized containers and fruit toppings on one of them.

      The spot looks like it's going to be a good hangout spot for students.

      I wonder how Pinkberry rates - when does the Irvine Spectrum one open?

      1. I got a chance to go today during lunch. :) Very different from the Fullerton location visually but yogurt is the same with a few extra additions in the toppings station.

        Also overheard a customer say "Man, I've been here 3 times the past 2 days." Her male friend responded "That's nothing, I've been here 5 times!!"

        I forsee multiple visits for me too this week...

          1. I went to the Yogurtland in Irvine after a dinner at Taiko last night and I LOVED it. I absolutely love frozen yogurt and it was just paradise for me. =)
            I love how you can pick all of these different flavors and have so many choices of fresh fruit for toppings. I will definitely be going back there.. probably soon!
