CDM Yogurt, any good?
Corona del Mar has a new Frozen Yogurt establishment: CDM Yogurt. It's right on PCH, and easy to miss if you're not looking as it's a narrow little shop. It's had a slow opening for the past two months, but today was the Grand Opening.
There are a few innovative flavors and a few traditional, while they only have about 8 on the floor at one time. The flavors are mostly non-fat, though there are low-fat flavors. The compensation between this place and other Frozen Yogurt options are that CDM Yogurt has more calories than places like America's Cup and Goldenspoon, however, the flavors are different in consistency and flavor.
Among the flavors I saw today, there were Old Fashioned Vanilla, Fudgecycle, Boysenberry, Tart, Blueberry Tart, Pineapple, Peanut Butter, and Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookie. My heart goes out to Oatmeal Cookie -- it was worth the extra fat. These flavors taste different than Golden Spoon, and Pinkberry does not have these flavors (so do not compare). The prices are .39 cents an oz... not bad! It is all based on weight, not size of cup. I noticed that half of the non-fat flavors were more icey in consistency and paler in flavor than Goldenspoon, which tends to have creamier/smooth yogurt. The Pineapple here, for instance, was more like a fine blended sorbet with very light hints of pineapple. The Fudgecycle reminded me of pretty-much just a melted fudgecylcle. On the other hand, the Oatmeal Cookie was a star. It was creamy and milky in consistency with little speckles of raisin and tasted like pure, well-balanced sweetness of oatmeal RAISIN cookie. I fancied this one, though it was 140 cals per 4 oz, and 2.5 g fat. There is sugar in all of these flavors, non of that sweetener stuff.
CDM Yogurt just has to stay apart from these other shops by innovating their own flavors. Another one that was a shocker today was Oreo cookie medley with Mound Bar. The flavors were mixed together to make one. It was strange, but good at the same time with hints of coconut in cookies n' cream. You can see my blog for more. Alas, they must keep working on more flavors and that consistency. Not bad though. I really did enjoy the Oatmeal Cookie, and the prices! What a location as well...
