Yogurtland is My Kind of Land
Have you ever tried something or went somewhere and felt like you really found the place where you belong? I have similar feelings when I walk into Yankee Stadium, sip Sangria on a Yacht ( I have actually never done that, but I am sure I would love it) or stroll a sunny beach. The last time I was in LA I had this feeling again and it was when I walked into Yogurtland. Yogurtland is a chain of frozen yogurt shops located mainly on the West Coast. Thankfully they have one in Greenwhich Village so I can have my fix on both coasts.
I was talking about food in one of my meetings in LA (no shock here) and my lovely client told me about Yogurtland. I did not think much of it but when I had some time between meetings and passed one I thought I should try this place.
Wow, I am so happy I did. Yogurtland is a sweet heaven. They have a variety of frozen yogurt flavors that you can pick from, like Pistachio (my favorite), NY Cheesecake, Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream, Mint, Vanilla, Chocolate, Pumpkin and some tart flavors that are similar to Pinkberry like Plain, Mango, Peach and Green Tea. The beauty is that it is self serve and you can pick whatever combination you like. That is awesome for someone like me who can never make up their mind on what they want. After you go crazy with the yogurt, you can go more crazy with the endless amount of toppings that they offer. Everything from mochi, cheesecake bites, sprinkles, oreos, lucky charms, granola, lychee, raspberries, bananas, chocolate chips, and gummi bears. Wow, it is a sensory overload for me in here. I love it, I can have a little coconut, a bit of strawberries, some mochi and lots of GRANOLA!!!! It is really an amazing treat and you can have as little or as much as you want because after you fill your cup, you just pay what it weighs. LOVE IT!!!!
Really, I can not sing Yogurtlands praises enough it has all I have been thinking and talking about since I got home. I have a feeling I am going to be here a lot in the coming warmer months. I just wish there more of these around and closer to my office or near my apartment.
