Is there a tangy-tasting kind of frozen yogurt that I can buy at the supermarket?

I'm looking for a tangy, tart frozen yogurt - akin to Pinkberry or Red Mango - that I can buy at the grocery store. There are a lot of varieties at my local Wegmans, and a few others at the local co-op, but the few that I've tried are just sweet and bland, so I'm hoping someone can guide me in the right direction before I end up with another boring pint in my freezer.

  1. I have looked for a while for the same thing. Closest I've found does not come in a pint, but as pops on a stick. They are by Yolato and they have plain and plain with a fruit swirl--I think it's raspberry. I have only tried the plain ones, and they are pretty good.

    1. We've been on a quest for tart yogurt too, since we love our local Yogurtopia and Mochi places. I had high hopes for the Haagen-Dazs tart yogurt flavor, but it's a lot lighter and sweeter with the vaguest hint of lemon -- not bad at all, but no substitute for Pinkberry-style tartness.

      1. Would it be worth your while to buy an ice cream maker and use it to make froyo instead?

        1. Have you tried Dreyer's/Edy's Yogurt Blends? They have a Tart/Mango or Tart/Honey combo that has the "tart" flavor, though not the soft texture. I thought the flavor was surprisingly good for something that's available in the supermarket.

            Just tried some the other day, and the first thing me and the s/o said was wow - that is surprisingly yogurty! We had the Tart Honey. Usually froyo just tastes like light ice cream, but this stuff tasted like yogurt. Probably some chemical flavoring agent, I dunno.

              I'll try that out if I can find it...sounds like it might be the closest thing I can get around here. I do have my own ice cream maker, but when I've done yogurt in it, it's come out not quite right. But maybe some experiementing is in store for this summer.

              Thanks for the ideas!

            2. Dunno if you live near a Trader Joe's, but they carry "plain" nonfat frozen yogurt. It is nice and tart, but I think the texture would be better if it had some fat.


              1. I usually make my own but I do recall seeing a Haagen Daz (sp?) release that said "extra tangy" or something of that nature so you might try that. It's super easy if you have an ice cream maker though to whip some lemon curd or other fruit or jam into some high quality plain yogurt - even just a dab of honey and high quality vanilla and pump out some delicious tangy frozen yogurt with little effort.

                1. Thought I would revitalize this thread, being that its 2 years later and maybe there are more options out there?? I am also searching for a yogurt similar to pinkberry that is sold in stores. I have tried Greek frozen yogurt but that's still not it. Anyone know of any new kinds out there?

                    Going to answer my own question here in case of anyone else is also looking...
                    I tried Frozen Kefir (Lifeway brand) and it seems to be what I'm looking for, so I will settle for now!

                      We buy Kefir when we stop at the Indian markets. Also Tofutti (soy frozen dessert) has a good deal of tang to it.
