Food Porn: Yo Betty

Last month we stopped by Froyo Culture and mentioned in our review that there was another frozen yogurt shop coming to the area. It took Alli and I a few weeks but we finally made our way over to Yo Betty, Williamsville’s other frozen yogurt destination. Yo Betty is located in a stand alone location, right next to Dash’s Market on Klein, in what appears to be an old convenience store (it was actually a pizzeria/liquor store). The exterior is where the convenience store resemblance ends (again, see above), once you walk into the shop you’ll see a well organized layout with fun, brightly colored seats (which Alli loved).

Yo Betty offers a self serve frozen yogurt experience; they have 8 different yogurt flavors with digital screens above each dispenser that provides a description and if the flavor is fat free, dairy free or gluten free. Once you fill up your bowl with as much froyo as you’d like, you can move down to their toppings bar and dispensers (pictured in gallery). They have a smaller selection of toppings compared to Froyo Culture but still offer a variety of candies, cereals and fresh fruit (when in season).

Quick Info:

Alli and I visited Yo Betty on my lunch break from work and found the place fairly empty, which gave us plenty of time to look over the yogurt options. In case you aren’t exactly sure what you’d like, you can ask for small samples of some of the flavors to help make your decision. Alli decided on their Classic Tart and topped it with blackberries, strawberries and cheesecake pieces (pictured below). She loved the tarty-ness of the yogurt, it actually reminded her of Pinkberry, a feat no other frozen yogurt place in Buffalo has yet accomplished (Froyo Culture, YogenFruz). The cheesecake bites were a nice touch, especially when mixed with the fresh fruit.

I ordered their Mango Sans Souci**, which is prepared locally by Rich Products and is a soy based frozen yogurt which mean’s its not only lactose free but gluten free. I was worried that a soy based yogurt might have a funky flavor or texture, but I was pleasantly surprised. The mango wasn’t too sweet and the texture was just as creamy as any other frozen yogurt I’ve had before. I decided to top it with only strawberries and I spent the extra ~ $1 for a waffle bowl, both were great choices. The strawberries were indeed sweet and fresh and the waffle dish gave the treat a nice crunch.

Both Alli and I really enjoyed our bowls at Yo Betty. They might not have as big of a selection of yogurts/toppings as Froyo Culture but they have all of the basics you’d want and then some. Prices are based on weight and there are some extras you can order along the way (like my waffle dish). Our bowls were ~$5 each and definitely enough to fill us up for a quick lunch. This place is a short drive from my workplace and whenever I’m in the mood for something sweet, I’ll be stopping back for another flavor.

**Disclaimer: We were asked to visit Yo Betty on behalf of our friend Vince McConeghy who mentioned they were serving a Mango flavor that was gluten/lactose free. We agreed to write a post only if we enjoyed their products and would’ve normally written a post without a request. The yogurt (and everything else) warranted this review, our opinions are our own.

  1. FYI, it was a pizza joint on the left and Clearfield Liquors (the only place that regularly stocked Seaview Sparkling Wine from Australia) on the right.
