creamy, icy treat
The queue for llaollao has recently been cut significantly shorter, as compared to when it first came out. If you’re craving for something icy and sweet, I’d recommend getting llaollao but only when the queue is short.
I only tried llaollao late last year, and I could see what the hype was about. The yoghurt was nothing fancy, just regular creamy froyo. But the sauces were pretty darn amazing. My favorite sauces are the Black Chocolate and the Rafaello sauce. They have a pretty diverse range of toppings too, as compared to other frozen yoghurt companies.
I’m not crazy in love with llaollao, but I do crave for it occasionally. It’s worth trying at least once to get a taste of their sauces.
Lives Up To Its Hype
Llao Llao is my favourite froyo chain in Singapore. Sure, it may be overrated and I won’t queue up more than 10 minutes for a cup, but there’s no denying that it is that good.
Although it may not be as creamy as Yoguru, I appreciate the slight twinge of sourness that comes from it being made of skimmed milk. The generous toppings of fruits and your choice of biscuits or chocolate are also an added plus. The amalgamation of crunchy, soft, milky, sweet and sour really works in this setting.
With so many new Llao Llao outlets constantly popping up, the waiting time has shortened dramatically and now I can get my favourite froyo without much fuss!
Wallao, wo llao llaollao
I’ve been introduced to froyo when my secondary school canteen started serving $1 servings of it one day. Since then, I was obsessed. I started trying all brands of froyo ranging from Sogurt to Berrylite, and loved them all. When the craze for Llaollao began, I knew I had to give this a try.
During my first taste of Llaollao, I had been insistent that it was nothing special - bad and too sour, even. But with subsequent tries, I could no longer hide the mainstream in me - I had become a Singaporean girl with weekly Llaollao cravings. The once sour-tasting yoghurt became froyo with just the perfect amount of sweetness, and $6.95 didn’t seem so overpriced anymore. I was on the bandwagon, and I was unashamed about it.
You may be tempted to have an entire Sanum on your own, but be warned that it is really, really filling, so maybe share it with a friend after a meal. If you prefer the froyo on its own without all the toppings, then skip the Sanum, and make do with a Petitllao for just $2.50.
The new poster boy for frozen yogurt
When Llao Llao opened its first store in Marina Square, their queues were insane. When it opened its second store in [email protected], their queues were so crazy that security guards were deployed to control the crown. Is Llao llao really worth the craze? YES!!! I love it. Although frozen yogurt was first sold in Singapore years ago, Llao llao revamped the entire concept of eating frozen yogurt through the fruits, sauces and crunches they offer.
I would always purchase the Sanum as it is the most value for money and Instagram-mable. A sanum used to cost $6.50 but they increased the price to $6.95 recently. It has opened many outlets nationwide and I would strongly recommend everyone to try it.
My Favourite Froyo Place
I’ve always had problems judging the weight of my froyo when I go to places like sogurt, and I love that llao llao does it all for me. They may only have one flavour of froyo, but they make up for it with a wide variety of sauces.
The Sanum used to be the most value-for-money option, but they have made the cup a little smaller since they opened, so now there’s too much toppings and not enough yoghurt. Nowadays I go for Medium or Large that come with three toppings each, and lots more yoghurt.
Choosing the right sauce is very important. My standard is Black Chocolate, which is dark chocolate that cools down and hardens when it gets cold. Nocilla is like a milk chocolate sauce and does not harden. If you want something really sweet, get the Rum N Rasins.
I don't like llaollao. Not the price, the yoghurt or any of their insanely sweet toppings. I've been there a grand total of five times, at three different outlets, but I still don't see the difference between their yoghurt and store bought yoghurt. It's certainly fancy and tasty with the multitude of toppings and sauces, but hidden underneath the frippery is surprisingly bland yoghurt.
Everyone swears by its creaminess, and I agree, it is the creamiest yoghurt I've had. The texture is marvellously soft and it glides smoothly from your spoon down your throat. But the taste? Blah. The last time I went there, dragged unwillingly by a llaollao fanatic, I ordered the smallest size of yoghurt. Just plain yoghurt, without toppings. Most yoghurt places are critiqued because their yoghurt is too sour. Even sour yoghurt would excite my taste buds more than llaollao's did.
The best part, my friend says, is that llaollao frozen yoghurt feels and tastes like ice-cream. But the next time I crave ice-cream-like frozen yoghurt, I'll just get myself an ice-cream.
Llao llao probably needs no further introduction. Pictures of their frozen yogurt and distinct long green spoons have flooded social media platforms ever since they came to Singapore. For the longest time, I had no idea how to pronounce "llao llao". I guess the most common mispronunciations would be "lao lao" or "liao liao" but it's actually pronounced as "yao yao". For those who didn't already know, you learnt something new today! :)
I might be slightly biased because I absolutely LOVE froyo but I must say llao llao's sanum ($6.50) is actually pretty worth it in my opinion. For the same price, you'll usually get a much smaller portion of froyo and toppings elsewhere. The sanum comes with a generous portion of frozen yogurt, 3 fruits, 1 crunch and sauce. The rafaello sauce is really good (I like the extra crunch in it) but I recently got hooked onto their dark chocolate sauce as well. Wish I could have both sauces in my sanum! :p
My only gripe though, is that the bananas aren't as ripe as they used to be when they first started. (Or maybe I'm just unlucky.) It's slightly disappointing when you realize that you're eating unripe bananas, kinda spoils the overall taste. But really, this is just me being picky and it isn't a big deal at all.
Will I be back again? Yes, definitely!! But only when the queues are short though.
The only specialty was the sauce!
I loved yogurt, especially frozen yogurts. They are always on my dessert list and an alternative to ice creams. Claimed to be lower in fat content, improves digestion and serves multiple health benefits. The yogurt trend has died down for quite a while until llaollao revived it!
Forever expecting long queues, maybe for now, this yogurt stall serves delectable yogurt in parfait forms. I always complain that the other yogurt stalls serve stingy servings and toppings, but now I don't. One llaollao parfait is enough to keep me substantially full for a short while. I get to add 3 toppings and a sauce for a reasonable price The sauce was what made me crave for more. They have a variety, but I only go for the white and dark chocolate. If you are adventurous enough, you can try the others.
Though the sauce and my parfait combination is great, but I have tried llaollao many times and none is comparable to when I first had it during their first opening. Probably due to its popularity, they no longer willing to give more sauce topping.
But still, it is worth to try only IF you have the patience to wait. Otherwise, be there early.
Really good yoghurt, maybe worth queuing up for
Llaollao is good, I'll admit. I love their sauces and they are pretty liberal with the toppings. The portion size does match the price tag, and is similar to what other yoghurt chains have to offer.
While perhaps slightly overrated and over-hyped, I suppose Llaollao really does what it claims - okay, right now it calls to me like a siren, impelling me to go back for more. Its taste is definitely above mediocre, perhaps even the best of all the frozen yoghurt currently sold in Singapore. I once switched to some other brand, and immediately regretted the decision, so I guess you can tell that Llaollao is GOOD.
The queues, though, are a little off-putting - you have to be there really early at one of the more empty outlets to be able to get your yoghurt. The Plaza Singapura and Somerset 313 outlets are always fully packed with snaking queues.
You'll be back for our taste
I can't believe I have not reviewed my favourite yoghurt! It's safe to say that the llaollao craze is here to stay everyone. The queues aren't getting any shorter even though it's been months, not that it has ever stopped me from getting my sanum.
For first timers, get the sanum for the best experience! Don't even think, there are absolutely no qualms about it. A look at the sanum and you'd think it's too much and you expect yourself to get sick of the taste but just like what llaollao's eerily accurate tagline predicts "You'll be back for our taste," you'll truly be back for more. At least that's what happened to me.
A sanum costs about $6.50 and it includes a good serving of yoghurt, three fruits of your choice as well as a choice of your crunch. My favourite combination would definitely be raffaello sauce, oreo, blueberry, kiwi and strawberry. It's considerably cheap for the portion you'll get! Not to mention, the frozen yoghurt that llaollao serves has got to be the best I've ever tried. I suppose the only flaw would be that the yoghurt melts way too quickly so quickly snap your shot for Instagram and start eating it.
Although there are more llaollao stores popping up all over the country, I do hope that they provide more seats because it'd be great to be able to sit down with your friends and enjoy a cup of sanum rather than walking around aimlessly while trying not to let the melted yoghurt spill out of the cup...
