Default Favorite Yogurt Place

What is your favorite yogurt place here in Austin? Personally I love TCBY, but the location over by the UT campus is a bit far and a hassle since I rarely frequent that area. I've tried all the ones I've happened to see, but curious to what else I might be missing.

The one in the Triangle. I think it is called Yogurt Planet. I've tried yogurts all over Austin and it's definitely my favorite.

Frozen yogurt doesn't have enough fat/cream for me. So I never eat it!

If I may tell a story...When The Country's Best Yogurt opened in Greensboro, NC, ca 1984, I liked it so much I gave out individual cups at a tennis tournament I directed. The taste was so 'addictive' that players were asking if they had time to go to the TCBY location to get more before their next match!

Initially, their 'smoothies' were the most popular items...fresh fruit and flavorings added to the low-fat soft-serve and spun like a shake. The line was out the door and they quickly realized the time and labor involved with making the 'smoothie'. The addition of multiple flavors of soft-serve made it easier to sell the faster cone or cup.

For over a decade, I 'tracked' the inflation rate by the increase in the cost of the 'super' cup of chocolate/vanilla swirl or White Chocolate 'Mouse'(as I used to tease the Korean lady who would always 'correct' my pronunciation). It was easy since I drove past TWO TCBY locations between home and work every day!

Over the two decades since, I've seen Freshens, I Can't Believe It's Yogurt and countless others come and go in various locations. Then, in the 'Zens, it seems like every strip center has a franchise 'yogurt' shop 'sandwiched' between the ubiquitous massage studios and mailbox stores.

Even at up to fifty cents an ounce for the current offerings, I can't imagine trying to cover rent and salaries in a store selling only frozen 'yogurt'. Good luck to those who try!

I had a friend that tried the TCBY (this can't be Yogurt) on vacation in the 1980's and wanted her husband to try it. He wouldn't many times but finally relented. He then opened the first shop in their town.

I've tried many, many yogurt places in Austin, including the ones listed here and my hands down favorite is Yogurtland on Anderson Ln for taste and consistency. They also happen to offer stellar service and a clean and pretty environment... free, fruit-infused ice water too. They usually have something like 16 flavors too.

I agree with Idewile. Yogurtland is the best yogurt I've ever had and somehow happens to be the cheapest as well (33 cents/oz I think).
