Haitai Oh Yes Korean Yogurt Cake Review

Fro-yo girl here. A few months ago I stumbled upon Crown Ice Heim frozen yogurt cookies at Hmart in LA’s Koreatown and they were really good. I had high hopes for Oh Yes Yogurt Cake since it looks like Choco Pie (yum Choco Pie). The cakes are made in Korea. I found them at Good Fortune Supermarket for $3.49 a box.

Oh Yes Yogurt Cake comes in a nice light blue box. Each box contains 12 individually wrapped snack cakes. The text on the box is mostly Korean but it says (in English): “Chocolate coated cake since 1984. You know that sweet things make smile. We love to see you smile with your people. So just taste this cake.” Cute – who writes their copy?

The cake is a 1.5 inch square. The thin soft chocolate coating reminds me of the chocolate coating on mini donuts. The white cake is light and there’s a thin layer of creamy filling in the middle that tastes a bit like Yakult or children’s chewable vitamins. The cake would probably taste better without the yogurt flavor but it’s still good because the Yakult flavor is faint and so it tastes like Choco Pie or chocolate mini donuts. It would go well with tea.

One cake is 130 calories with 7g of total fat.

Ingredients: Wheat flour, chocolate, yogurt cream, egg white, white sugar, refined water, corn syrup, shortening, hydrogenated vegetable oil, glucose, margarine, sorbitol, palm oil, baking powder, ester, cream cheese, salt, cream cheese flavor, guar gum.

4 out of 5 stars

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
