Frozen yogurt or froyos are my latest darlings - I have been craving for them as an after-lunch dessert almost every single day. Yami Yogurt has been around for the longest time and is also one of the cheapest froyo shops in Singpaore. For $2.30, you can satisfy your froyo craving without feeling guilty.

The yogurt at Yami Yogurt is creamy, neutral, and not as tart as other yogurts. On its own, the orginal froyo’s a little bland. But that’s why you top it up with fruits and cereals for flavor and crunch, and it's the perfect munch! I personally like the peach flavoured one the best for its sweet, fuzzy and refreshing taste. A word of caution: the service sucks so don't expect happy, cheery staffs.

Though I doubt that it's as healthy as it claims to be, I think Yami Yogurt is well-worth the calories without burning a hole in the pocket.

Could be more "Yami-er"

I've always been a big fan of frozen yoghurt but somehow Yami Yoghurt is not as great as all the hype I've been hearing from my friends. In fact, it is rather expensive as 4.50 for a medium sized cup is really not that worth it. Portions are really small and the service at most outlets is often really bad. This is in contrast to other yoghurt shops, where the staff often greet customers with a smile and most of the time, servings from other stalls tend to be much larger.

All in all, Yami yoghurt is really not a place to go to if you are starving and desperate for something filling to eat! I would strongly advice you to spend your money elsewhere.

The yogurt here is great. Unlike normal yogurt, the ones sold here have a sort of nice ice-cream like taste to them. Combine that with the large variety of toppings to choose from, and you have a tasty snack to help blur the time between lunch and dinner. The other plus side is that it's yogurt meaning it's healthy so I can eat as much of it as I like without feeling guilty.

Now for the downsides.... The pricing. It is rather ridiculous. For such a small cup, I pay as much as up to $3. Add in the toppings and the price raises by about 80 cents to $1.50. At this rate, it is much cheaper to just buy the toppings individually from NTUC and sprinkle it on the yogurt yourself. I love coming here, but the prices really put me off.

Of course they get a 5 for the food rating.. How bad can froyo get?
Well what I really do not like about yami yogurt is the small serving size. Like it just takes a ravenous me + a tablespoon to finish the yogurt in 2 bites! no kid! They swirl the yogurt in such a way whereby the center is empty. I know, bummer.
Other than that, it is pretty much similar to other yogurt stalls like frolick and yoguru.
I know I know, what a Singaporean. So cheapo. But really though, why pay the approx same amount for less yogurt when you can get it from yoguru/frolick?

I'd only eat Yami yogurt when I have no choice- froyo crisis or something.

I don't know what the froyo craze is about, really. I do like Yami yoghurt, but I find it too expensive given the small serving size. The size of the smallest foam cup makes you think you will get a scoop that fills the cup, but in reality, it doesn't.

The taste of the plain yoghurt is good, nonetheless. My favourite pairing is the regular yoghurt with granola, to give myself illusions of how healthy it is. (Deep down, I know it can't be true. Low calories are still calories!!)

If Yami Yoghurt just changed the size of the cup, I would probably be more willing to pay for it, even if I know it's just visual trickery. They should probably also focus on expanding the range of flavours and toppings available, which other froyo chains offer. Will consumers really buy Yami yoghurt just because of the health benefits?

Yami Yoghurt has always been my go-to place for healthier choice desserts. Times when I want to avoid eating high calories ice creams or desserts; I would always opt for Yami yoghurt. The good thing is, it is available almost everywhere- from heartland malls to urban shopping areas.

Also, the yoghurt always tastes so refreshing and I don’t feel guilty even after consuming the entire take home pack by myself! It is unlike other yoghurts which are soggy in texture and has a very strong taste in their flavours. Yami Yoghurt is generally more solid and the flavours are just nice but not overwhelming. I will always order the jumbo cup (mixed peach and natural flavour!) to share with my partner.

But one downside thing I’ve to point out about this yoghurt shop is that their staff can be rather impolite in most of the stores I frequent (especially Ion). The staff are impatient when taking orders, give rude replies and almost never put a smile on their face. As much as I love Yami Yoghurt, their lousy service is deterring me from visiting there more often. They definitely need to brush up on their service.

I was once a huge fan of Yami Yoghurt, partly for their yummy flavours as well as their generous topping. That left me coming back for more, until I have tasted better yoghurts than Yami Yoghurt.

There is this thing that leaves my friend and I intrigued- the menu is ever-changing and different flavours are up for selection daily. The problem is that we have no idea what are the 'next-day's flavours' and we are going to go from branch to branch for that particular flavour, which I think it isn't a very good idea for the consumers. Also, the flavours up for selection was really minimal, but the toppings are in a much wider range. This led me thinking: Are we coming for the yoghurt or the toppings?

The fact that they are frozen yoghurt tells me that it was most probably mixed with lots of ice in order to achieve that level of 'frozen'. However, the price range was rather reasonable, but with that price, there are other better yoghurt stalls in Singapore. Definitely not my cup of tea anymore!

I’m a recent fan of Yogurt and Yami Yogurt always makes me keep coming back for me.

Firstly you choose your flavor of yougurt which are usually 4. I usually go for the peach flavour. Next you choose your size of cup, regular, medium or large. There is take-home option also available. And then you can choose your toppings which are usually a handful of choices to choose from. They range from nuts to fruits. I usually like peach topping on top of my peach yogurt.

The yougurt at Yami Yogurt is nice and tastes very good. It almost as if you’re indulging in ice-cream except it’s yogurt so it’s very healthy. Don’t have to be worry about calorie intake.

Regulars to Yami Yogurt would know that they have a loyalty card which enables you 1 stamp for every $3 spent on a single receipt. Usually the smallest cup with a topping would enable you to get a stamp. If you accumulate 12 stamps before their expiry date which is usually 6 months, you get a free 13th medium sized cup courtesy of Yami Yogurt. Has that tempted you enough? I’ve 4 stamps away from my free cup. How about you?
