Yogurtland - Alhambra

Yogurtland - Alhambra 1

KiwiBear - Claremont (Closed).

Peach House - San Gabriel (Closed).

PinGo Yogurt - Alhambra (Closed).

VeryBerry - San Gabriel (Closed).

Even the chain frozen yogurt locations such as CeFiore - Monterey Park (Closed) and CeFiore - Los Angeles (Little Tokyo) (Closed).

I heard the death knell for Pinkberry - Los Angeles (Koreatown) imitators a few years ago when Nubi Yogurt - San Gabriel opened with its 38 cents an ounce fro-yo. I was just waiting for Yogurtland to come beat that with its 30 cents an ounce fro-yo.

 And sure enough, last summer Yogurtland opened in Alhambra in the old Starbucks at the Pacific Square strip mall where Kang Kang Food Court - Alhambra, Kiki Bakery - Alhambra, and Phoenix Food Boutique - Alhambra are also located.

Has it really been three years since I first saw ElmoMonster's post about Yogurtland in Fullerton? I knew there was no way Pinkberry, and its imitators, would be able to compete with more than a dozen flavors of tart and sweet frozen yogurt, fruit, nut, and candy toppings, and at a much, much, much lower price point.

Too icy some people say. I think consistency varies by location and flavor. I find original tart and green tea flavors just fine. And love pineapple and mango. This summer's lychee flavor wasn't half-bad either.

And I don't eat nearly as much frozen yogurt to cost the average Pinkberry $5 price point.
