Berrylite American Premium 100% Fat-Free Frozen Yogurt, the froyo that has all of Hollywood abuzz with chatter, is now in town! And it’s here to spice up your life and tantalize your taste buds with new sensations!
When it comes to frozen yogurt, I am an addict. Determinign which is the best is a little like being a wine taster: there are bouquets, clarity, taste, attack, evolution and finish. If there was ever an opening for a yogurt tester-cum-taster, I would be first in line.
I have managed to collect a number of loyalty cars from various brands, none of which I ever use. My favourite has to be berrylite. 100% fat free. Wow! What does that really mean? It means more sugar, bit I ignore that.
American fat-free: as if that were possible. And it contains what are supposed to be good things but actually sound like dinosaurs: Streptococcus Thermophilus, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Lactobacillus Lactis, Lactobacillus Acidophilus and, in case you missed it, Bifidobacterium.
When I read that on my brochure when I was trying to clarify how many calories per medium size serving, I began to question my wisdom in eating the stuff. But I believe the majority: yogurt is good for you. Fresh is best ( of course). Frozen is OK lah, and forget about the thermopbulgartobacillusterium, or whatever it’s called.
Berrylite will be fine.

My Favourite Yogurt Shop
When it comes down to frozen yogurt, I don't think anyone can beat Berrylite. I love how Berrylite yogurt has just the right amount of sour to it. It's not overpowering and the texture is super smooth, you'll feel like you're eating ice cream instead.
I really like how their fruit toppings are always so fresh! I've never been disappointed when I get my yogurt fix with strawberries, peach and nata de coco. I'm not such a big fan of their other yogurt flavours though, I like sticking to original.
Berrylite is totally worth it if you ask me. I might just head over to Northpoint to have it again this weekend. Oops.
Berrylite's froyo is rather creamy in texture, kind of like ice cream. They have flavours like Raspberry, Black Berry, Blueberry, Green Tea and even Chocolate froyo! Everyday, there will be about 3 to 4 flavours available and they change on a regular basis. I have visited Berrylite many times before and I like that everytime I'm there, there is a new flavour I can try :)
They also have a wide range of toppings to choose from! For example, they have the standard froyo toppings like oreo crumbs, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows as well as crunchy and fresh fruit toppings like strawberry, kiwi and mango. I also like their 'weirder' toppings such as pomegranate seeds and honey balls.
Another thing I appreciate is their loyalty card. They never seem to expire! I've had mine for more than 2 years and I am still able to use it. I have just recently gotten enough stamps to redeem 3 free toppings :)
Good yogurts, great milkshakes!
I'll start off by saying I am not a yogurt fan, neither frozen nor melted. I'll only pick yogurt as my choice of dessert only if I have over indulged during my meal and looking for a low calorie option. I tried berrylite for its unique chocolate flavored yogurt which is hard to find in other yogurt outlets. I found it pretty refreshing, it was sweet and light and my toppings were pretty generous. Price wise, it is tad higher than the rest of the froyo places, but froyo is kind of pricey almost in every shop and I did not really mind the additional few cents.
The milkshakes are great as well. I tried the strawberry milkshake and they basically blended yogurt with strawberries. It was lighter than your ordinary milk/cream base shakes and is not as filling as normal milkshake which I take to be a good point. Price wise it is pricey too, but I did not feel the pinch as milkshakes are not something I drink everyday.
Overall, for a occasional froyo consumer, I find berrylite tasty and different. Even if you prefer other froyo, the milkshakes are worth a try.
Not toooo bad
Berrylite yoghurt is really more icecreamy than it is yoghurt, kinda like a hybrid offspring. The yoghurt tastes pretty alright, not pow wow fantastic but enough for a light takeaway snack while walking around (: I visited the outlet at Parkway Parade and tried Matcha Green Tea (I'm a sucker for anything green tea) and my friend tried a Double Chocolate. Those two were probably the more normal flavours, Berrylite realllyyy do have an assortment of different unheard of flavours. My friend mentioned though that one cup of yoghurt has roughly 90 calories which is fairly low (:
Overpriced though..really overpriced! If you're willing to take the risk then go ahead but I'm sure there're cheaper tastier options out there (:
I only remember the branch location at Marine Parade, where I ate once at never went back again. A yoghurt lover, I prefer Yoguru, Sogurt or even Frolick as compared to Berrylite. I don't really think that it is 100% fat-free, it is sweeter and the taste does not last long on the tongue. I remember the weird flavours they offered though, with shocking shades which looked unnatural D: It is also overpriced, give me the original from yoguru anyday- yoguru gives much more yoghurt and toppings!!
Their smoothies are the saving grace however, much more palatable.
Seats-wise, it was rather cramped, the tables did not appeal to me and did not appear welcoming for one to stay long.
Other froyo outlets anyday over Berrylite, please.
Berrylite is really different, compared to the other froyo outlets around. Their yogurt seems to have a higher milk content, whereas the other froyo outlets have more like a 'sorbet' kind of texture. It's an acquired taste for Berrylite because the milky flavour is very distinct, and not many will prefer such a taste.
It claims to be 100% fat free, but judging from the consistency of the froyo, i highly doubt it's fat free. Also, there aren't much flavours on a daily basis, perhaps about 2 different flavors daily?
Their smoothies, on the other hand, are pretty acceptable. I'd drink them much more frequently compared to the froyo. Once again, its smoothie is definitely on the milky side - fills you up pretty quick.
I wouldn't recommend this to my friends or people - infact, if you mention froyo, I wouldn't even think about Berrylite, maybe because they have yet to capture that taste that caters to the public?
Good but not great
I'm the kind who can't resist froyo so I do eat this rather often. But Berrylite yoghurt is more easily resistible than other yoghurts. It's not that their yoghurt tastes bad; it's just nothing fantastic. Though I've tried it so many times, it hasn't really left much of an impression on me. I'd just say taste "okay", texture "okay" (but slightly watery at times and melts quite quickly) but "okay" is just such a bland description for anything.
Berrylite offers more interesting flavours besides the conventional fruity ones, the most notable being chocolate. It was an interesting blend, but once again, for something that is supposedly unique, it actually didn't leave a great impression.
Berrylite promise healthy and yummy yogurt, but all I experienced was insubstantial portions of yogurt. Their yogurt is way too overpriced - I feel like their yogurt was only mediocre at best and even their servings of toppings were rather meagre.
I was not too thrilled about the staff and their service either, and the tables were small and dinky, it made me feel like I was not welcome to stay in their shop after purchasing a cup of their yogurt. The texture of the yogurt is a little bit more towards ice cream, not as tangy as I would like it to be. A little plain and boring as well - I don't think it deserves a regular visit.
If Hollywood is all abuzz with chatter because of Berrylite, then perhaps Yoguru or Sogurt should venture into America - they would definitely take the fro-yo world by storm.
The outlet I visited was at White Sands and the staff were unfriendly, to say the least. The server even looked rather unhappy and annoyed when I asked to sample a flavour. The original flavour was too thick and also a tad sour; nothing fantastic, really. It is more expensive than many other fro-yo outlets - same issue as Yigloo, but unlike Yigloo, it doesn't make up for the price through its quality. It is definitely far from its more popular counterparts and has a lot of catching up to do if it wants to survive for long in the local market.
Some Weird Flavours
Berrylite is one of the more seldom seen frozen yoghurt chains. I only remember the branches at Yishun interchange and Marine Parade. However, they do have more interesting flavours than many other yoghurt shops.
I have tried the dark chocolate flavour and that was delicious. It did not even taste like frozen yoghurt at all and was more like chocolate ice cream. I am not sure about the health facts, whether they are accurate or not with all the flavourings added. Frozen Yoghurt is supposed to be healthier but after adding the flavouring and the toppings, I doubt it really is healthy!
They also came up with a new flavour recently, which was blue in colour. It was quite a horrible experience for me. The yoghurt looked ghastly, a bright shade of fake bubblegum blue, and the taste was awful. It was pure, strong vanilla and I got sick of it pretty fast. So I would recommend to stick to their usual flavours if you are not so adventurous like me.
Their range of toppings is quite normal, they do not have any special toppings like popping bubbles that other yoghurt chains have, but if you are just looking to satisfy that frozen yoghurt craving, this should do the trick.
