I know what you’re probably thinking – another froyo place? Sydney is currently chock-a-block full of these frozen yoghurt parlours and it’s getting rather hard to tell them apart…but I can assure you that Mooberry is slightly different from the others because it’s also a dessert bar, serving up warm goodies like Belgian waffles, churros and chocolate souffles to keep the winter chill away. The shop space isn’t that big, but has enough room for a few groups to dine in. Keeping with its Newtown location, it is quirkily decked out with astroturf on the walls, picture frames, mirrors and lots of purple, although surprisingly it doesn’t play on the cow theme too much (apart from its logo).

Yet another froyo parlour has opened in Sydney! Yogurberry, the international froyo chain set up shop in Strathfield last week, right down the road from 3 other parlours including the likes of Moochi and Noggi. They’ve already got several stores across Sydney including Chatswood, Eastwood and World Square and this time are upping the ante with their newest store.
I am a massive fan of frozen yoghurt (or ‘froyo’) and am super delighted that the commercialisation of froyo parlours is rapidly increasing. Today I am visiting Wowcow, a froyo store at Darlinghurst which is just a short walk from Kings Cross station.
Wowcow has multiple locations including Newtown and Parramatta (coming soon!) and as expected, their branding and decor feature cow-themed interiors. They have a great selection of yoghurt flavours and toppings similar to Moochi and Noggi, but unlike them, Wowcow feature a rotating roster of yoghurt flavours. Their staples consists of vanilla and chocolate and an additional two flavours which change weekly out of a total of 16 flavours (this week’s is mango and chai).
Vanilla/Mango Yoghurt with Yoghurt Chips and Mango Pearls – $6.50 for a medium cup +$1 per topping
Today my eating companion and I are sharing a double flavoured yoghurt with two toppings. Our mango yoghurt is very fruity and reminiscent of mango gelato. I find the vanilla a bit sour and less creamy than Moochi/Noggi but equally delicious in its own way.
Our toppings included some interesting mango pearls and yoghurt chips. The yoghurt chips tasted like small bits of white chocolate, but the mango pearls were delicious! They looked like giant yellow-ish fish roe and these pearls would burst in your mouth, releasing mango juice.
Overall, I am loving Wowcow, and loving that a branch is opening soon at Parramatta which is much closer to me. Their yoghurts equal Moochi/Noggi in deliciousness but they definitely have much more interesting toppings. I can’t wait to go back to try their ever changing flavours!
