And the fooding continues…

Another day spent at the NTU library. I made time for some frozen yogurt today at Yogurt Art, opposite the NTU campus on Roosevelt St.

All neo-frozen yogurt stores have the same kind of solid color, white, open space design.

Display-wise, Yogurt Art has a very similar look compared to Pinkberry and Red Mango. According to store literature, the frozen yogurt is imported from the U.S. and everything is 100% natural, with no additives. Walking into the store, the first thing I noticed was the fact that the yogurt is self-serve and the final product weighed before being priced…not unlike a salad bar! Obviously, this is great for people with diet restrictions…but for people like me who have little self-control…well…this could prove problematic.

A whole line of flavors to choose from! Self-serve of course ;)

There were 8 flavors to choose from: Cappuccino, Georgia Peach, Country Vanilla, Cable Car Chocolate, Plain Tart, Pomegranate, Lychee and Berry Tart. Apparently there are 40 flavors to choose from and the store chooses 8 each day1. After you pick your yogurt, you can put an assortment of toppings on it.

Four flavors from the upper left working clockwise: pomegranate, original, Georgia peach, and lychee. Three toppings are brown sugar mochi, kiwi and strawberry.

My serving came out to be 96 TWD (45 TWD per 100 grams) and that was working under a lot of restraint! (I’m quite proud of that!) Overall, I’d say my favorite was a toss-up between pomegranate and lychee. Usually, my tastes run towards the original yogurt flavor, but Yogurt Art’s original isn’t as tart as I would have liked. It was almost even a little bland.

But anyhow, not bad! I’d definitely go back!
