New Wildberry Yogurt, Phoenix area

  • 9

Recently we saw a shop with a "Wildberry" sign and it appeared to be a Pinkberry-type frozen yogurt clone. Now we can't remember where we saw it . . . it would have been in a strip mall somewhere in NW Phoenix or Glendale/Peoria. I did a google search and didn't find anything. Has anyone else spotted this? I'm ready to try it!

  1. There is a Wildberri Yogurt shop next to Target on 7th st and Bell Rd. It has been open about a month.
    (401 E Bell Rd. Ste.23)

    1. Sad, that a chain can't put up a simple website to market their stores.

      Different neighborhood, but, I saw some yogurt place was coming to Mesa Riverview (near the theatres), The name sounded familiar, but, I can't remember it. I haven't had any luck with the shopping center's website. http://www.mesariverview.com

      It looks like Ice Tango is also expanding, although, mostly in Scottsdale. http://www.icetango.com

        BTW, the the "coming soon" sign at Mesa Riverview is for Ice Tango.

      2. kittyfood, I know you're somewhere out west -- have you tried iSwirl? It's at Litchfield & McDowell, behind the Black Angus. Yes, the owner's Korean, and the yogurt does have live cultures -- the original flavor is tangy and everything you'd hope for.

        I have never been to a Pink/Wildberry, so I don't know if the setup's the same. You walk past the counter to a wall of dispensers (eight flavors) and dispense whatever amount or combination you desire. At the counter you add toppings, and they weigh it at .39/oz. If I had to guess, I'd say the topping selection may not be what you find elsewhere -- but I'm after the yogurt, so I don't really care. I have tried: original, chocolate, coffee, peanut butter; vanilla, blueberry, apricot-mango, and watermelon.

        The atmosphere is very Asian -- flat-screens for the menus, sculptural chairs, saturated candy colors on gloss white.

          I want to go there, I'm going to keep checking back to see if I can find it.
          I had a friend who went to Korea for a few months for her work, they have similar "yogurt bar" setups there but they called it bingsu. It sounded really good.

            Thanks -- actually we're not that far west (we are near Bell & 51st Ave.) but next time I get out that way I will look for this place. The Wildberri that acquablue mentions at 7th & Bell must be the one we saw, as we did visit that Target a couple weeks ago. Looks like we have a new frozen yogurt trend starting in the city. I, too, am more interested in the yogurt than the toppings.

              been to iSwirl twice. the original flavor is decent, while the others are hit-or-miss.

              the topping selection is mediocre (esp. the choice of fresh fruits) compared to similar stores.

              in any case, it's a nice addition to the area.

              also, I haven't been yet but berrygood (http://www.berrygoodyogurt.com/) just opened in goodyear (estrella pkwy/mcdowell). the reviews on yelp are not promising:

                i've tried berrygood and it's not berry good. i'm surprised that you don't like the original at iswirl. i use to eat pinkberry everyday and so far i swirl is the closest to their original that i have found in this area. have you tried chill?

            2. I think there is a new Pink-type yogurt place downtown next to Pino's Pizza. I haven't tried it yet - might have to put it on the list!
