|Moochi's watermelon froyo with watermelon and mango|
Apart from ice cream, of course.
It's flavorful, tangy and refreshing, what's not to love? I can't believe that I used to hate frozen yoghurt, it's all thanks to the BFF who opened my eyes to its glory. Look at me now, jumping around trying every froyo chain in sight.
Anyways do you know that there are three froyo chains in Strathfield, all separated with only a few metres walk? And Yogurberry is also opening soon. Gotta tell you, this post isn't about comparing them, as I love all three, but you may have your own favourite which is completely fine. But maybe there's some comparison, it can't be helped when you're making a post about three different stores offering the same goods, right? Do tell me your favourite though!
Moochi is the pink one, and the first one I've tried in Strathfield. I personally love Moochi's setting, I think it's really cute.
One of Moochi's plus points is the selections of the toppings, I think there are over 30 there. Spoilt for choice, indeed. The price isn't hard on the pockets as well, and you can get as many toppings as you like with $0.5 each.
Moochi's froyo is also hard to fault. I've tried their pomegranate, watermelon, and biscotti; I heart them all to bits. The yoghurt has the perfect consistency and smoothness, it's also not too sweet whatsoever for me. My fav is still the biscotti though, so creamy you won't believe it's froyo!

Noggi is the green one, it gives calmer ambiance, but promises the same fun and satisfaction.
Beside the froyo, they also offer waffles menu and smoothies. The toppings aren't as many as Moochi, but they're more than enough for me. I've always picked the fruits anyway. Here, your chosen froyo size comes with 3 toppings, unless you want your froyo on a cone. If you have to compare the prices between Moochi and Noggi, I don't think it differs much.
This is the only time of me trying Noggi. Between biscotti and mango, I prefer the later. The froyo's flavour is less intense and it melts quicker, but the flavour is nice, and it's also smooth and has perfect level of sweetness. Another winner on my book.

I'd never heard about Yogohouse before, apparently they're still new in the neighbourhood. So I'm assuming that they're the dongsaeng (Korean=younger sibling) of Strathfield's froyo empire. Dominated in light purple, the store is quite spacious with more seatings compared to the two mentioned before.

The difference is obvious: this one is 100% self-serve. It's interesting on its own way, as it gives you full independence to dress your cup, but if you're not careful you may pay more that you have expected just because you put another swirl.
I'm happy with the flavour selections though. On my visit, they have the original, raspberry, original+raspberry, green apple, mango, apple+mango, chocolate, banana, and chocolate+banana. Thanks to my experience working at a fast food chain involving the use of soft serve machine, it's not a struggle to make a few perfect swirls. And the crews are always there to help, anyway.
After filling your cup to your heart's content, move over to find the topping selections which is also isn't as wide as Moochi's, but I reckon it's quite complete.
The froyo costs about 18c for 10 g if I'm not mistaken. It's a really bargaining price, I reckon, as this big cup of mine was really challenging to be finished and it only cost about $6.
My fav is the mango. It's incredibly good and smooth, although some may think it's a tad bit too sweet. Not for me though. Delicious! The green apple also deserves praises, perfect balance of sweet and tangy sensation. The raspberry is also nice, but I still prefer the previous two.

Now I'll have a hard time choosing where to get my froyo on my next trips to Strathfield.
Have you tried the three of them? Share your thoughts!
