Move aside ice-cream; if you are looking for a space to socialise with friends on any given time of day and delve into a sweet treat, Yo-Chi is the place worth checking out. With a store located in Carlton, Yo-Chi is a hub of self-serving frozen yogurt, categorised into three options: dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan, with each having a variety of flavours.
Ingredients are natural, sourced from the highest quality local farmers and suppliers to produce the finest desserts you could have. I recommend the salted butterscotch, liquorice, coffee and classic vanilla yogurt. To top it off customers have the option to decorate their chosen flavours with a selection of toppings, including fruits, lollies, fudge, and more.
Additional to the quality treat is the impeccable service of the friendly staff members that happily respond to any queries you may have, and ensure you are well taken care of. While having made efforts to create a space for community, Yo-Chi also makes an effort to take care of the local environment. The cutlery is made out of cornstarch and fully biodegradable, and the napkins are made out of recycled paper.
Yo-Chi has a unique aesthetic – the design being created by industry-leading artists. The arrangement of the space showcases the effort in making the store a cosy place for people of all ages to come in relax and enjoy time with their family and friends. Apart from the atmosphere, the store is located close to RMIT University, which is an additional bonus for students.
Concerned about pricing? Yo-Chi is much like the lolly stations at cinemas. Your treat is priced based on how much it weighs ($2.80 per 100g) so now your friends can’t pull the, I can’t go out, sorry, I’m too poor! excuse
Give it a try and see why frozen yogurt has become so addictive!
