Fro-yo girl here. Two Yogurtland locations (CSUF Fullerton and Lakewood, CA) are currently testing Yogurtland Snow. Yogurtland Snow is a shaved ice product. It’s made with a milky liquid that’s transformed into ice and shaved in a machine. There are currently two flavors: original sweet milk and matcha green tea. You can also choose one of their flavor creations:
* Mango madness: original snow, fresh mango, mango puree
* Strawberries & cream: original snow, fresh strawberries, strawberry puree
* The original: original snow, red beans, mochi, condensed milk
* Green tea: green tea snow, red beans, mochi, condensed milk
Order Yogurtland Snow at the counter. A team member will make the snow and your flavor creation. You’re also free to further customize your treat by adding froyo, toppings and sauces. It’s priced by weight at the same price as their yogurt and toppings.
The snow isn’t shaved with a Taiwanese style shaved snow machine (the ones that start with a block of snow that’s shaved into thin ribbons as it spins). The texture is more like a Korean style patbingsu (shaved ice). I prefer the Taiwanese style because it’s smoother and lighter. Granted, I don’t eat a lot of shaved ice or snow because I’d rather have frozen yogurt but I have had what’s considered to be the best Taiwanese snow at Class 302 and I’ve had it some other places too.
I tried the Green Tea snow with red beans, mochi and condensed milk. It’s more like a Korean style shaved ice. The texture is like tiny bits of flavored ice. It’s gritty and doesn’t have the smooth, lightness of Taiwanese snow. The green tea flavor was sweet and pleasant but I’d rather have Yogurtland’s matcha green tea froyo than their shaved ice.
I was told it was Taiwanese style snow but it’s Korean style.
After trying the Snow I filled out a survey and received a coupon for $2 off Yogurtland Snow.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
