Yoghurt Culture is the worst the fro yo tastes bitter, like the taste in your mouth when you do a sick burp.
Yoghurt Story is not as bitter tasting, but they have dumb toppings, mostly all lollies
Kiwi Yo is by far the best, their fro yo tsates like ice cream, they offer the bitter or tart yoghurt fro yo as well and they have way better toppings, like cream and custard and fruit and lollies and syrups.. Everything is covered as well for snotty kids who cough all over stuff
Guys, there is only one TRUE fro yo place and that’s the one all the others are trying to copy… Kiwi Yo
all the way

I gave it only two stars because it lacks the basic requirement of any frozen yoghurt store:
Frozen yoghurt needs to TASTE like frozen yoghurt.
Having been impressed all the way up to the point when I sat down ready to dig in, I was utterly disappointed by the time I took a second spoonful of what was essentially, a blend of artificial flavouring and sloshed ice.
It’s not enough just to have a shop located at the heart of mission bay with pretty lighting and decor to attract teenagers. The very product that this place is selling needs to taste GOOD.
Probably a good idea for the owners to check out the other froyo stores in town to see what frozen yoghurt really tastes like.
I tried the vanilla and strawberry yoghurt which was delicious. I didn’t overdo the toppings and only added a few as I wanted to enjoy the yoghurt instead. It was a unique taste! I really liked how you could sample the flavours instead of having to commit to a flavour which you haven’t tried. They also allow you to sample flavours even if you don’t intend on buying any at a small cost of $2.
They had great staff who were all very helpful and friendly.
They also had a fun webcam which allows you to take pictures of you and your friends. I believe the photos gets uploaded onto their Facebook page.
Overall a great atmosphere and experience!!

I would go everyday for dessert, but gotta watch the extra pounds, and I can easily go crazy helping my self on the self service….
Will keep going back, its soooo gooood!
SOOOO yum! The variety of toppings is just so good. I especially enjoyed combining soft, juicy pop-in-your-mouth berries, with crunchy fudgy bits, and a sprinkling of nuts, with a good dose of choc-crunchie-bar bits, jaffas, and… so it goes on.
An absolute treat, and I managed to keep the price under $5 for the lot. (I chose a medium sized cup).
Definitely a favourite place for a sweet treat. I told my partner to bring our daughter down for a treat, and he reported that she was in seventh heaven in that place. Her eyes were popping out of her head with wonder!

Way overpriced….canned fruit and the taste of the yoghurt was horrible and artificial….not a nice experience
I walked in looking confused as it was my first time there.
The lady who worked there immediately came up to me and explained everything
After choosing chocolate yoghurt topped with nerdy nerds, and hundreds and thousands, and sherbet, and chocolate chips – I was ready to pay what i thought would be the expensive transaction.
However it was only $1.90 ! I was amazed! I thought frozen yoghurt (especially in Mission Bay) was really expensive – especially with all the topping options – I’ve never seen so many in my life!
The location is the best – right infront of the beach.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and highly recommend it
While we were waiting for other people to finish doing their own yoghurts, we were greeted by an extremely enthusiastic young girl who was extremely helpful. We had no idea how to get started, since it’s a ‘self serve’ shop, unlike other ice cream places in the area. She gave us a quick run-through of the system, and we were surprised to learn that the place actually rotates it’s flavours every week! The girl even offered us free samples of the flavours since we couldn’t decide which ones to get!
The displays above the machines were very helpful. The flavour was clearly shown, as well as ALL the nutritional information. It was marvellously presented and I was impressed. I eventually decided on getting a mixture of the caramel cream and cheesecake flavours. There were heaps of toppings to choose from, I went with strawberries, blackberries, granola, chopped almonds, and a dash of maple syrup. In the end the total purchase for five people was about $35, which was a tad cheaper than I thought it would be.
My reaction, on first bite, was to say “Oh my god, this is great!!”. The yoghurMoret was exactly as I had hoped; creamy, yet not too rich as to taste like icecream, and not too sweet. It was delicious. I would definitely go there the next time I go down to Mission Bay. Unfortunately, I was told that it was the only one it Auckland! I’m going to have to go to Mission Bay more often!
In summary, I recommend strongly recommend this place. The atmosphere there is amazing- the decor is stunning and the staff are extremely friendly and willing to help. And, most importantly the product is impeccable and good value.
Well done to the owners and creative minds behind this concept .
