 Bf and I visited The Yoghurt Place at Ngee Ann City after our dinner.  Service was friendly; they actually let us taste the yoghurt before we even said that we wanted to buy.  Sort of a marketing strategy:- try before buying!  We tasted at least 2 flavours (raspberry and strawberry) before we finally decided to buy (coz they were having a 50% discount on the 2nd cup). We paid something like S$5.10 for 2 small cups of yoghurt.  

One thing I like about the yoghurt place is that you can choose 2 flavours for each cup of yoghurt, regardless of its size. 

The Yoghurt Place claims that its yoghurt “contains less fat, less sugar and no preservatives yet delightfully smooth and creamy and that it is freshly made.” I thought that yoghurt simply contains less fat and less sugar than ice cream and that’s why diet-conscious people eat yoghurt in place of ice cream?   Freshly made or not, it’s a matter of opinion.  To me, freshly made means they have to make the yoghurt in front of me.  I spotted at least 3 tubs of plain yoghurt in the freezer.  Perhaps what the company meant was that they do not keep the yoghurt for too long and that’s why it’s fresh compared to the yoghurt you get in the supermarkets. 

Although the yoghurt is indeed soft and smooth, I don’t like the yoghurt.  It’s simply plain yoghurt with toppings.  The strawberry yoghurt is not strawberry flavoured; rather, it is plain yoghurt with something like strawberry jam on it.  True, the topping is not sweet and if you mix everything up, you do get strawberry flavoured yoghurt. 

Skip the ordinary flavours like strawberry, blueberry etc.  These you can get similar quality in the supermarkets at a lower price.  Instead, go for the other flavours like blackforest, cappuccino, chocolate hazelnut, choco beans and cookie crumbs.

  1. isn’t that defeating the purpose of yogurt being low in fat if u add those choc/ cookies, blackforest toppings?

  2. That’s a good point Ice! But I go for flavoring rather than low fat. If you really want low-fat, don’t eat yoghurt in the 1st place. 😛

  3. hmm…yogurt is supposed to be low in fat…

    if u like flavoured yogurts there’s this new one at Holland Village called Frolick. flavors limited (for now) but it’s really very good. I heard Yoguru at Kallang Leisure Park is nice too. Both are frozen yogurts like yami yogurt.

  4. Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. 🙂 Cheers! Sandra. R.
