Review: The Frozen Yogurt Factory, Dubai

In one of my recent trips to Dubai, i was walking in Dubai Mall just outside the Reel Cinema when i spotted this little store…

We were tired and in need for a little pick me up, a frozen yogurt place with no lines? We went inside immediately

The cheerful seller explained to us that it is a frozen yogurt place in a Self Service style! You Pick the size, the flavor, serve as much as you like, add whatever toppings you like, then weigh it all and pay! That’s it!

I grabbed my self the small cup at once! There were 3 big machines dispensing different flavors…

Mango, Strawberry, or a Mix of Mango & Strawberry

Blackberry, plain, and a mix of both…

Flavors of the week: Pomegranate, Guava, Pomegranate & Guava

A 4th machine for people who don’t like yogurt, low fat vanilla ice cream, low fat chocolate ice cream, and low fat mix of both!

I chose the Mango & Strawberry mix, Butootee went for the Pomegranate & Guava Mix…

The good thing is you can control how much you put in your cup… i tried to put as little as possible but it turned out like this… i guess we need practice!

For the toppings… there 4 four types of syrup… we both skipped that part…

How many different toppings are there? You do the counting!

Every single chocolate you can find on the shelf is there…

You have an option of having a waffle cup as well…

The fruits topping where in cold stainless steel containers and covered… there were so many usual & unusual fruits as well…

Like for example this fruit… i didn’t try it as i don’t know how it would taste… looks itchy? but it’s a nice addition!

Papaya! I love papaya! but i didn’t try it though…

Butootee added Pomegranate & Mango pieces on his…

and some coconut flakes… interesting… Guava 3la Pomegranate 3la Mango 3la Coconut 3la kiwi… very tropical…

Weighing the frozen yogurt concoction of mine (just added blueberries)…

Both our yogurts cost 34.60 dirhams y3ni taqreban if the dirham is 750 fils q8y fa they will be 2.5 KD… not bad at all!

Taste wise? It was very very VERY good… very similar to Pinkberry if not better… the Guava & Pomegranate were amazing! There were no lines because, well, there is no need for a line! People come and get their orders swiftly and quickly… grab take and go! No waiting, no lady deciding to taste and scrunch her eyebrows to think for one hour if she likes the yogurt or not, no driver with an order of 60 frozen yogurts for the Zwara holding up the line, no hassled servers bumping into each other on their way to complete customers orders…

The two workers were happy, relaxed, and very helpful… they posed for me when they knew i was going to post this on my blog… i hope one day they will come across this blog and see their picture… if they do, thank you very much for all your help 🙂

If you are in Dubai, you must try it… and if you have the means to, please bring it to Q8… it would be so much easier and fun for every one!

      Thank you :*

      Dasem? Hmm… to me it didn’t feel that different fat content wise… do you think it differers from one flavor to another?
