I love Pinkberry and its ilk, but I find the quantities to be daunting, especially since I usually get the stuff after some sort of meal. Which is to say that Yogurtland is the best option I've seen. I recently had dinner at Izayoi and we wandered over to Yogurtland afterwards. Boy, were we surprised by the variety. There are about 10 or so flavors. I had the pistachio (tastes like pistachio!) and the "tart plain" or something like that. Then, I put some blueberries over it with a couple of cheesecake bites (c'mon, I can't be good all the time). It's 30 cents an ounce and I watched these two girls pack a big cup full of toppings and 3 types of yogurt. Their total came out to $5, which is a steal considering how much it costs elsewhere.

So, 'hounds. Can anyone recommend place with a similar "by the ounce" philosophy in Monterey Park? I want to try that Noodle House reviewed by exilekiss recently. Thanks.

Oh yeah, I know they plan to open a Yogurtland on Valley, but the website says "coming soon" and I can't wait that long!

      To me the perfect way to enjoy Taro is with Red Bean topping. Yogurtland rocks!

      There's less froyo in SGV since the dessert trade is sort of pre-empted by boba, shaved ice etc. However I think Yogurtland is planning to open at Garfield and Main in Alhambra. Also, there's Fruit Island at 411 E. Huntington Dr. in Arcadia which sells by the ounce. I also need to check the new frozen yogurt place that opened on Garvey, east of Atlantic. Not sure if they sell by weight or not.

        Try Red Mango, basically Pinkberry and all these other Yogurt companies ripped their idea.

        I find that it tastes better as well.

        There are several all over SoCal.

          Does Red Mango sell by the ounce?

            Unfortunately no. Just small, medium and large and priced comparable to Pinkberry. It comes in two flavours, regular tart and green tea. Green tea is a bit pricier. I much prefer Red Mango to Pinkberry but in these times, I've given up both in favour of places like Yogurtland where I can control the portions and the sizes.

              I usually just get the original tart at Yogurtland, but it's the self-serve toppings I love. Sometimes I want a little bit of a ton of diff toppings. Sometimes I just want a huge mass of mochi balls. Mmmm...

          Confirming that it's self serve by the ounce frozen yogurt at QQ Yogurt, 501 W. Garvey Ave., #105 in Monterey Park. I think it's 38 cents per ounce.
