The Times welcomes dining, wining and entertainment news – Has your restaurant/venue undergone a change? Do you have a special event coming up? Have you launched a special price or menu? By Natalie Tan Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Well, Snow White may be fair, but equally fair and far more satisfying and real than a fairytale princess is a “froyo” from White’s & Co in Britomart. For those unacquainted with the term froyo, it’s a blend of two sim- ple yet wonderful words: frozen yoghurt. However, White’s & Co. is not the only one that can lay claim to the froyo tango. Becoming something of a phe- nomenon of late, frozen yoghurt is also available at the bright and peppy KiwiYo in Botany; ice-cream parlours such as New Zealand Natural, and at supermarkets from brand names such as Cone Kings, Piako, and even Tip Top. However, i am told frozen yoghurt was trendy back in the ‘80s, and that today’s version must just be a rehashed memento of a bygone era – oh, to have lived then! Although my first encounter with froyo was more than seven years ago, the memory remains fresh in my mind. i was in South Korea – where quirky dessert parlours and eater- ies with trendy decor are com- monplace – and the locals insisted on taking me to a venue called red Mango. Finding the concept of choosing from a smorgasbord of toppings for a tangy, sweet and creamy swirl of frozen yoghurt seemed utterly deli- cious, i was instantly smitten. red Mango wasn’t the only one – there was iceberry, Pinkberry, and a cornucopia of others which had cottoned on to the craze that later took America by storm. When i dolefully returned to New Zealand, red Mango was some- thing i enthused about at every opportunity and commiserated with Koreans over its absence. Then, a couple of years later, while at university, i made the most wondrous discovery! The cure for cancer it was not, but it was cer- tainly one for froyo-sickness. it came in the form of Yogoberry, a little store tuckedaway in an arcade that con- nects Queen St and Welles- ley Street West in the CBD. Similar in appearance to red Mango, and offering the familiar, silky smooth yoghurt and colour- ful toppings, i thought i had struck gold – until now. Fast forward several years later to 2012; the yoghurt craze has finally hit Auckland with Yogoberry, KiwiYo and Yoghurt Story all featuring prominently. But right at the top of the froyo pops is none other than White’s & Co.; all other purveyors hold not even a flicker of a candle to its per- fection. Housed in a kiosk with some al fresco seating in the swanky dis- trict of Atrium on Takutai, White’s & Co. is not just gold; it’s white gold! Self-titled, the Merchants of Freezery, White’s & Co. sources yoghurt from gourmet yoghurt company, The Collective, freezing it into the freshest, creamiest soft- serve yoghurt imaginable – not the common icy variety which is the norm at many other froyo places. imbued with flavours such as vanilla, chocolate, berry or mango (flavours can be combined in a twist) the yoghurt of choice can then be topped up with Willy Wonk-derful accompaniments such as biscuit pearls (my favourite so far), candy floss (looks like silky golden locks, but tastes divine), cookies, nuts brownies, rhubarb compote, fruit, toasted coconut marshmal- lows, choc- olate-coated poppingcandy, and a whole range of syrups and curds that is enough to drive any des- sert fiend insane with desire! Yoghurt- holics will love White’s & Co., as will ice cream and gelato fans – no complaints even from the most religious of ice cream devotees, rather, satisfied grunts of ‘mmm, this is good’. For me, it sure beats travelling all the way back to Korea for a decent froyo! White’s froyo delight Dining and Leisure with Helen Perry Above: mango with biscuit pearls and candy floss.
