Yogurtland Comes to Queensland
The first Yogurtland shop has opened in Queensland at Westfield Strathpine. I was attracted to the place because of the bright look and the row of self serve yoghurt dispensers along the back wall.

Once inside I was wowed by the array of colourful toppings ranging from fresh fruit pieces and fruit "bursts" to chocolate and cheesecake pieces. Checking out all the flavours is also exciting as they have some really interesting ones - think pistachio, peanut butter and lychee tart.

The kids choose double cookies and cream after being given a sample to taste. I opted for a mixture of pistachio and white chocolate macadamia.

looking forward to trying this one


While the concept is not entirely new, the way you serve yourself and pay is something different. First you choose your container from 2 different sizes, then you serve yourself which is fun. This means you can have as much or as little yoghurt as you like. On each station there are 3 dispensers, one for each flavour and the middle one for a mixture of both - brilliant!

Once you have your yoghurt you move to the toppers bar and help yourself to whatever you like on top. The kids wanted cookie crumbs while I opted just for the yoghurt so I could get the true taste.

Next you take your container to the counter where you pay by weight. The cost is 65 cents per 28.35 grams regardless of content. (Being a US company this is translated from 65 cents per ounce). The 2 containers we purchased cost around $7.

The boys really enjoyed their concoction, however I found the taste of the pistachio too subtle for my liking. Perhaps it was overshadowed by the white chocolate macadamia so I will give it another try.

This franchise markets itself as offering a healthy snack food. There are several non-fat flavours and all yoghurts are gluten free except those using cookies. Each yoghurt is fortified with Vitamin C. They also produce all the yoghurt in a kosher kitchen.

The website is a good source of information including nutritional details for all flavours and toppings.

With plans for further expansion in Queensland there is sure to be a Yogurtland opening near you soon. For something a little bit different and a bit of fun give it a try.
