Tutti Frutti: Yummy Yogurt!

I love yogurt. I have loved it for over 20 years. So when frozen yogurt became popular in the Metro, it also became a favorite with me. When a small group of my mommy blogger friends and I were invited last Feb. 17, 2011 to try Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt at SM Hypermart Pasig, I readily said YES. 

We had time to meet the franchisee, Allan Sio, who readily sat down with us to introduce us to Tutti Frutti.

Tutti Frutti has over 150 stores worldwide (California, Virginia, Georgia, Texas, Hawaii, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Tahiti, Mexico, Hong Kong, Malaysia, etc).

It has over 50 different flavors but of course, you won't find all those in one visit. They have 4  yogurt dispensing machines, each of which can dispense 2 separate flavors using different levers or, choose the middle lever of each machine to dispense a combination of the 2 flavors in it.

The day we visited, these were their 8 flavors:
  • Strawberry Banana
  • Vanilla
  • Strawberry
  • Death By Chocolate
  • Pomegranate
  • Cookies & Cream
  • TF Original (permanently available)
  • Taro-bly Delicious (permanently available)
You choose your size of cup, choose your flavor, and dispense as much or as little as you like. Add toppings of your choice (optional), weigh and pay. Tutti Frutti charges P20 per ounce (not counting the cup's weight).

For diners who have no idea what these flavors are like, they have colorful tiny spoons so you can try all flavors before choosing a cupful.

Of course, I went around trying all 8 flavors. Strawberry Banana tasted good. I guess it's because I love those 2 fruits. Death by Chocolate was a curiosity and it turns out, it tasted much like frozen Chocolait. The Taro-bly Delicious, though yummy and probably popular with kids, was a little too sweet for my taste. 

I eventually settled down with my all-time favorite -- the TF Original. Then I added fresh fruits: strawberries, blueberries and mangoes. And this is the result (all 9.026 ounces of it):

Kids may want to know that aside from the usual nuts, cookies & cream, oreo, marshmallows, Tutti Frutti has mocchi toppings!

Another feature of their toppings is their premium gourmet sauces from Monin of France with choices like Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate and Caramel.

Tutti Frutti is located right across the checkout counters of SM Hypermart Pasig, very close to the Food Court.
