Yogurtland Introduces Waffle Cones, New Flavors, and a New Spoon!

Fro-yo girl here. Happy July! There’s a lot going on in froyo right now. First up, let’s talk about the new offerings at Yogurtland. There are two new flavors, Dairy Free Key Lime Pie made with coconut milk and Cookies & Crème light ice cream. Cookies & Crème certainly sounds familiar but the previous Yogurtland version wasn’t a light ice cream; it was a soft serve ice cream made with OREO introduced in January 2018.

Dairy-free Key Lime Pie: I wasn’t sure about how much I’d like this flavor…and I liked it quite a bit. The coconut flavor is there but not overpowering. The key lime is sweet and not tangy (I like tangier flavors), but that’s what I expected. It’s rich and creamy. It’s also probiotic and vitamin C fortified. According to Yogurtland, “this flavor is inspired by the true classic key lime pie dessert. We paired real key lime with graham cracker crumbs and transformed them into a sweet and creamy flavor delivering the full flavor of a key lime pie, while being completely dairy free.” Recommended toppings: Graham crackers, Nilla wafers, mango, and gummy bears

Cookies & Crème Light Ice Cream: This ice cream is made with OREO wafers. It has more cream and more cookie flavor than the Yogurtland froyo version, Classic Cookies & Cream. It’s also richer and has more calories compared to froyo. Yogurtland describes it as “It’s the classic real Oreo® dunked in milk, but even more delicious.” Recommended toppings: Chocolate shell, whipped cream, toffee bits, almonds

Purple Waffle Cone Spoon: The purple spoon is the first NEW Yogurtland spoon of 2019. The waffle cone design is one of the cutest spoons they’ve come out with not involving a Sanrio or Tokidoki character.

Waffle cones: I’ve already tried the waffle cones at Yogurtland since they were being tested at a few locations. I like waffle cones but they’re hardly innovative. They were testing newer cone styles like taiyaki, bubble waffle, and cereal cones. Flavored or black activated charcol cones would be nice. I also didn’t see a waffle iron or smell freshly made cones. The cones are weighed with a special cone holder. The cone holder is 5.8 ounces. Make sure they deduct 5.8 oz from the total weight.

I also spotted posters for National Ice Cream Month. On July 21, National Ice Cream Day, Yogurtland has a special buy one, get one free deal from 1 PM – 6 PM. Some of the new signs mention a new summer flavor, Pomegranate Lime Twister sorbet, to be released on August 5.

Here’s the official Yogurtland press release:
