After the success of Montana Brew Bar, a waffle cafe, the brains behind this cafe immediately followed with Nookie Yogurt. I suppose they are striking the iron while it is hot. And interestingly, Nookie Yogurt and Montana Brew Bar are situated back to back.
Like the many cafe that are making storm on Instagram, they started by inviting famous Instagrammers and bloggers to food tasting.
Since their opening, they have been seeking feedback and improving their products and currently there are a total of 6 flavours.
1. Matcha Black Sesame Crumble
2. Mango Sticky Ricke
3. Strawberry Watermelon Rose
4. Salted Caramel Banana
5. Chocolate Caramel Fudge
6. Apple Berry Pie
But I am not sure if these flavours are here to stay.
The first I tried was the Strawberry Watermelon Rose. I find this flavour very original. The Rose flavour blended very well with both the Strawberry and Watermelon. I like this best, so far.
The next I tried was the Apple Pie. The yogurt was filled with Apple cubes and apple sauce with blueberry toppings and some crumbles. It tasted very much like an Apple Pie with Yogurt. This is second on my fave list.
The third I tried was a relatively new flavour, the Matcha Black Sesame Crumble. In it, beside the Matcha sauce and the black sesame crumble, there were watermelon and kiwi. I find that there were too many fruits and too little yogurt in this creation. In addition, both the green tea and black sesame flavours were too weak. I could not taste much of these flavours. I didn’t like it as much compared with the former.
In general, their yogurt is a little sourish, but not as sour as the Ilao Ilao. Neither it is very creamy, not as creamy as The Cold Pantry‘s original yogurt. So personally, I find Nookie Yogurt lacks of characteristic as it is a little over balanced. The consolation is that the various interesting flavours of the sauce make up for this weakness. Moreover, most of the time, with the flavour masking the yogurt, most would have neglected the taste of the frozen yogurt itself and it would become secondary as the focus would have been shifted towards the flavours instead.
As I prefer a really good solid yogurt over the flavours, I still find the best original frozen yogurt remains with The Cold Pantry. It is the interesting flavours and the pretty looking creation at Nookie Yogurt that attracts.
