The other day I went to Yoberri in Lincoln Park with Josh, Jonathan, and Jen. Earlier in the afternoon, I went to Berry Chill for some frozen yogurt so I wanted to try the other places in Chicago (frozen yogurt is just entering the Chicago market). Yoberri was opened a couple weeks ago by a 21-year-old girl that tried a similar frozen yogurt in Italy and decided to recreate it in the states (the owner of Berry Chill had a similar story). Business hasn’t really picked up yet (the weather is still kind of cold and the location is a little out of the way for people).

Josh and I ordered a medium with blueberries, mangoes, and raspberries:

All of the fruit is fresh, although half of the raspberries are blended in a mixer and then added back with the fruit (a good idea, but it was incredibly sour when I actually tasted it). The mangoes were overripe and the raspberry sauce was a little sour, but the blueberries were very good.

Size of the hole:

UNacceptable! Josh actually pointed out the hole size (he followed the fro-yolympics, obviously). Yeah, the hole WAS incredibly large, but they had a scale behind the cash register (a scale that they DID NOT use). Jonathan and Jen ordered a medium with papaya, mochi, and strawberries and weren’t impressed with the taste or the iciness of the frozen yogurt.

A little video of our review:

Yoberri Review from Grace Yang on Vimeo.

I was messing around with my camera (actually, it’s my friend David’s camera), and I took a little video review (it was actually really easy and fun to do!). I don’t have any video-editing software (I don’t have a mac – boo!), but no one said anything I had to edit, so I just uploaded it online – I hope you enjoy it! If you have any tips on how to edit videos, drop me an email – gracenotesnyc@gmail.com.

Would I go back to Yoberri? No – even though it’s a cute store and I would love to support local businesses, the frozen yogurt was just not very good.

It looks really icy / slushy. Toppings look nice though.

Who is this Josh? I would tap that little piece of Asian chocolate cream pie in a second.
