I adore my tart, yogurty lover Pinkberry as much as the next person, but a brand new yogurt bar in Hermosa Beach may give it a run for its money.
Lotus Yogurt Bar at first glance looks like yet another Pinkberry rip off with its posh minimalist design, ‘green tea’ and ‘original tart’ offers, but they take a very interesting sales approach.
Firstly, it is self-serve at 39 cents/ounce. Secondly, it has about a dozen flavors ranging from citrus to the delicious Cookies-and-Cream. Thirdly, you pay by the ounce for both your fro yo AND toppings.
They offer up an ample choice of toppings which includes berries, kiwi, lycee and many other fruits; Cap’n Crunch, Fruit Loops and granola; finally, the ol’ classics sprinkles, chocolate chips, M&Ms and cookie dough. And that is just about half of them.
If you are like me, you don’t buy into the 75-cents per six M&Ms method at most fro yo places. Here, the 39 cent/ounce pricing is great for a toppings lover. I got a hearty helping of Cookies-and-Cream fro yo with cookie dough and cookie crumbles for a grand total of $2.03. That’s right.
So here’s the plan – celebrate summer, go to Hermosa Beach, grab a beer at Patrick Molloy’s and a delicious summer treat at Lotus Yogurt Bar. I will probably see you there.
