Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt at Eton Centris Review
Juggling blogger works, being an online teacher, a father to two ADHD labrador retrievers and aspiring successful entrepreneur-netrepreneur is never easy. It’s quite exhausting and frustrating. However, I found it rewarding as the seeds I’ve planted years ago are all starting to bear fruits. My adsense and other promoted earning opportunity websites are now starting to give a substantial amount of earning despite I don’t update my blogs on Sundays; I use to receive gifts from my Korean students; and, whenever I’m down my very adorable dogs never failed to make me feel better.
When things started to become tougher and wanting to give up, I just pause and look for something that can help me relax. Of course, my favorite, YOGURTSS!
One time, after talking to a client at Eton Centris, Quezon Avenue, I took a walk and saw the Tutti Frutti Store. Good thing, that time, I have my camera with me. I then excitedly went inside, aimed and shot.
Tutti Frutti Defined
Tutti Frutti is an American company that caters self service yogurt. This is available in countries like Australia, Brazil, Brunei, Cambodia, Canada, China, Colombia, Dominican Republic, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Tahiti, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Vietnam and many more.
According to the company’s website they have the most number of flavors that sets them apart to the competition.
The Place and Personnel
The Tutti Frutti Eton Centris branch is located at the U-5C Centris Walk, Eton Centris. It’s about five a minute-walk from MRT Q. Ave Station.
The place is awesome. There are sofa on the sides and tables at the center. I sat on the sofa at the right side of the counter and I found it relaxing. It is also quite clean and well maintained.
I dined in at about 2pm (hot day). When I arrived, I noticed that the air conditioning unit was not opened and the personnel only opted to keep the doors open. There were about three groups dining with me and the personnel didn’t mind opening the cooling system. There were even groups that left the place instantly upon entering saying that it’s hot inside.
Well, for me, as a consumer, you chose to munch a frozen yogurt to keep yourself cool. How can you do this if the aircon that is supposedly a part to the service is not opened? Just asking. No harms intended.
Based on the receipt, the personnel was Monic – Clarence Alfonso. She’s ok. She’s not the friendly type, but can respond to your needs well.
The Yogurt, Toppings and Price
Just like most of the weight-based yogurts in the market, Tutti Frutti’s price is P20.00/ oz. During my visit the place offered six flavors of yogurt: Original, blueberry, vanilla, avocado, papaya and raspberry. I only took the original, blueberry and raspberry.
The yogurt is not that compact compared to other yogurts I tried. It’s maybe because, it’s not that frozen yet? Or maybe, due to the absence of cooling unit? I said it as the yogurt was unable to keep its shape.
Based on the taste, the yogurts are still awesome. I even found their original yogurt tastier than the O My Yogurt’s. The blueberry? Still satisfactorily. The raspberry, on the other hand for me, is quite sweet. The thing that I love about yogurt is the sour kick, that’s why I’m not a fan of the too sweet flavors.
The yogurt is also offered via a cone for P85.00. You just have to ask the personnel as it’s fixed.
Tutti Frutti is one of the companies that offers the most varieties of toppings. They offer canned products, chocolates, fresh fruits, processed goods and many more. The kids in the other group were quite delighted with the toppings.
Despite I’m not into toppings, I tried their assorted and coffee jellies. I didn’t regret it as it is superb. The bitterness of the coffee jellies complimented the sweetness of the yogurt. The chewing part is also a great experience, it’s not like chewing a “nata de coco” or “gummy bears” as the jellies won’t stick in between your teeth.
As a yogurt lover, of course, I found the Tutti Frutti at Eton Centris amazing. Self-service and ounce-based yogurt will always be a part of my unwinding and now that I found one nearer my place, I can say, that it will be my first choice in case I wanted to bloat myself with yogurt.
Nothing can still change my mind that the original tart is the best. But, I will still try some of the flavors available.
But, just in case I visited the place and the service is still that way (i.e. no aircon and one-question-one-answer employee) I think I’ll just go with the mall-based stores. I’m not threatening, but we should also state the fact that I’m one of those customers/consumers who got disappointed that the place turned off their aircon in a very hot day.
But still, I want you to try place guys. Still highly recommended.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 as the highest, I’ll give them 8.
