Quicky post – Another frozen yogurt joint
Hey, I’m going to do a quick post on a new frozen yogurt store in La Jolla called Frutti Yogurt. It’s located in the little plaza area down the hill from Whole Foods. Tucked in with the International Market and Grill and The Yummy Bento Box (?). The decor is simplistic but clean, refreshing, and “tries to be hip but doesn’t over do it.”
I love this place’s use of light everywhere. The light up counter was a nice touch. And here’s the toppings bar where they have a variety of jellies, fruits, cereal, and traditional ice cream toppings too.
And this is the counter where the magic of Fro-Yo happens! They have 4 flavors: Plain, Green Tea, Taro, and Raspberry-Pomegranate. I didn’t try the plain or green tea flavors, but I did try the other two. Actually, even though I ended up choosing taro – which was actually not that overpowering as most anything taro are – I found the raspberry-pomegranate to taste better of the two.
Ok, so this place works like any other (non-self-serve) yogurt joint: You pick a size, one flavor, and one topping. Any additional toppings will cost you about $0.55 I think, I can’t remember…in fact this was several weeks ago so I can’t really remember the prices for the other cup sizes but for my yogurt (a small cup with one topping) it cost $3.75.
The taro flavor I got was subtle and the yogurt base was actually fairly icy. It was really hot so it was highly welcomed. With my yogurt, I choose the mango star-shape jellies. I thought Frutti Yogurt was not that bad especially if you want a cool dessert on a hot summer day. However, I prefer Yogurt World on Convoy over Frutti but Frutti gets brownie points for their not too sweet taro yogurt. Also, the woman that was working that day was very friendly and was more than happy to let me take pictures of the store after I told her what it was for. So if you are in the La Jolla area, come here for a quick, cool treat!
