Review: Snogurt, SS15 Subang

>> Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Almost everyone loves something sweet & icy-cold every now & then. Who wouldn’t – especially on a hot day (all year round in Malaysia!)? With the Malaysian government going full-on with advertisements & campaigns for all citizens to lower their sugar intake (thanks to the spiking-high rate of diabetic patients), I’m sure many Malaysians are caught in a dilemma on whether to satisfy their sweet tooth, or to abide with the “angelic advices” given by the government.

Hear ye, hear ye! Especially girls & ladies, & of course the gentlemen as well!

Snogurt may be one of the best solutions to our dilemma! You’ll get your dose of icy-cold dessert, packed with wholesome goodness of vitamins & good bacteria that helps in digestion, all in a less-fattening, less sugar-packed cup of frozen yougurt! Snogurt could be your next best friend, especially if you’re an ice-cream lover + a health conscious citizen ;)


Snogurt started its first outlet at SS15, Subang on the 10th of October 2010. Kicking off its business at 3pm on the day of launch, Snogurt has had a steady flow of customers, mainly students from neighbouring colleges & of course residents from Subang Jaya itself. This brand is the brain-child of 2 business partners, Mr Lau & Mr Yap. As frozen yogurt is very popular in Indonesia, Mr Lau decided to bring the revolutionary dessert to whet the appetite of Malaysians (who just enjoy eating)! Snogurt is a self-owned outlet & both gentlemen will consider licensing their brand name in the near future.


This 1st outlet could accommodate an approximate of 30 customers at one go, but most of their customers are take-aways customers. If you prefer to sit in & enjoy your cup of Snogurt, go ahead & sink your teeth into cold yogurt, while surfing on their free Wifi service!


Snogurt boasts of its 3 simple DIY (Do-It-Yourself) steps/concept for your cup of frozen yogurt. Firstly, grab your cup, and then pick your choice of Snogurt. After that, select your preferred topping(s) & finally, weigh your cup of Snogurt (RM4.90/100g) & pay at the counter! Snogurt’s alike a smooth ice-cream, but with yogurt as its base. So, anticipate the slightly sourish wake-up call in your humble cup of Snogurt!



Here are some fun facts of Snogurt:

1. The yogurt powder mix is imported from Italy.
2. The R&D team at Snogurt has added fresh yogurt & liquid/concentrated/powdered flavours to the original frozen yogurt mixture (the one from Italy) for an improved & more satisfying indulgence :D *woots!*
3. Currently, there are 6 flavours at Snogurt i.e. Just Snogurt (Plain), Shy Lychee, Chich Chocolate, Screaming Apple, Strawberry Smooth, & Mango Tango; the 1st three in the list being the most popular flavours.
4. The Snogurt mix can only be kept for a maximum of 3 days, after which the frozen yogurt will be discarded. You can expect fresh Snogurt everyday ‘cos they have been making new batches of Snogurt everyday!
5. The Snogurt dispensing machine is also imported from Italy where the parts are manufactured, but the parts are assembled in China. What’s important is that the engine & compressor of the machine are from good-ole-reliable manufacturers!
6. The Snogurt dispensing machine is washed TWICE daily, once in the morning & another time after the shop closes at night. You can definitely be sure to have clean & fresh Snogurt each day :)

Here's what I thought about the 6 different flavours offered at Snogurt:
  • Just Snogurt – Plain & simple sourish yogurt, for those who prefer something with no-frills.
  • Chic Cholate – I personally find this flavour “comforting”. It has adequate taste of chocolate with a tinge of sour yogurt. Quite a pleasant combination, actually. It left a yummy chocolate after-taste in my mouth :P
  • Strawberry Smooth – If you’re a strawberry fan, this is for you. I find this quite sour compared to the Chic Chocolate. It also tastes more “milky” than the Chic Chocolate & the Just Snogurt.
  • Screaming Apple – It was an instant “ding!” moment when I first tasted this flavour – Granny Smith! The taste of green apple is so evident & fragrant that you won’t mistake this for some other flavour ;)
  • Mango Tango – I felt that the mango flavour wasn’t pungent enough. It wasn’t a flavour that made me get up to my feet & do the tango...hahaha...
  • Shy Lychee – This certainly isn’t a shy flavour! In fact, it’s no doubt one of the most desirable flavours of the 6 flavours available! I enjoyed the pleasant sweetness in the slightly sourish & milkfish frozen yogurts...it kinda reminded me of some melon taste!

Snogurt is opening its 2nd outlet at the end of the month at Taylor’s Lakeside College. Students, lecturers, & administrative staff – look forward to the revolutionary Snogurt stepping into your campus soon!
