If you don't feel like ice-cream, the healthier dessert craze following closely behind is frozen yoghurt, also popularly known as froyo.
After strolling in search of dessert on Lygon Street, I came across this store, which I'm sure wasn't there before. Passers-by would pop their head in this bright, funky place to ask the staff, "Is this new?" to which they would chuckle and nod.
Frozen yoghurt places are indeed popping up everywhere. I've already written on another new place in South Melbourne, Ayomo, so I was up to try some more froyo from a different place.
Their toppings seem plentiful, with options catered to ensure no one is left out. They've got gluten free jelly beans as well as favourites such as Oreos and wafer sticks. You can even choose a sweet sauce to go on top such as caramel or chocolate. Their full list of toppings can be found here.
Their signage (pictured above) revealed where the fun sounding name, Goyogo, originated. Their flavours also demonstrate their desire to leave no one out, with soy cinnamon dairy and also natural sugar free flavours.
Like many places, the yoghurt can be obtained at a self-serving station, and your final cup with toppings will be priced by its weight at $2.90 per 100 grams.
Of course, there's plenty of everyday and recognisable flavours such as chocolate, coconut and more. Check out a full list of their flavours here.
The staff are friendly and offered us generous samples of the flavours we were interested in before we made our ultimate decision. I tried coffee as I was curious and enjoyed it a lot as the flavour didn't feel too weak or diluted.
The shop interior is bright and lit up, which is what caught our eye whilst walking past on a Saturday night. The decor is modern and a little bit minimalistic. It's all no frills and the signs aim to be simple and direct to customers.
In the end, I decided to go all out and have an indulgent dessert. Whilst one friend chose coconut and another really enjoyed the wild berry, I went with a combination of coffee and chocolate.
For toppings, I chose hazelnut, white chocolate buttons, Oreos and a cappuccino wafer stick. It was delicious but I may have piled my yoghurt too high to add the toppings properly as they tended to slide off a bit. I think it would be great if they crushed their Oreos a bit more so they can be added more easily.
