Yogurtini is crossing State Line and opening a location in Overland Park -- its fourth frozen-yogurt shop in the area. The newest location will be at the intersection of 119th Street and Metcalf and is expected to open in early April.
Yogurtini is a self-serve frozen-yogurt operation. You grab a cup, pick from any of the dozen or so flavors offered on a daily basis, and then ladle on as many of the 65 toppings as you want. The cashier then weighs your cup, and you pay by the ounce.
Yogurtini, based out of Tempe, Arizona, currently has three locations in Missouri. The newest opened this January at the Summit Fair development in Lee's Summit (880-J NW Blue Parkway). The other two locations opened last year in Zona Rosa (8749 NW Prairie View Road) and just off the Plaza (4853 Main).
In a head-to-head taste test for Fat City, I picked Yogurtini over Red Mango (a chain based out of Dallas, Texas). But with Mochi-Yo, Orange Leaf, Peachwave, Mely's, and TCBY, there are a lot of options on the Kansas side. Now that we've had a year to get over the frozen-yogurt craze and the excitement that anybody is selling tart fro-yo, which of the frozen yogurt shops is the best and why?
