Nookie Yogurt @ 1 Selegie Road

"Yogurt with an attitude."

“Yogurt with an attitude.”

Nookie Yogurt is one of the latest ventures of the same people of Montana Brew Bar, which interestingly enough is right inside PoMo, where Nookie is located as well. The frozen yogurt kiosk offers a range of pre-existing frozen yogurt creations, from Red Velvet to Mango Sticky Rice. (LlaoLlao, time to move aside perhaps.)

The most noteworthy fact about Nookie is their unique flavours that you can choose from, ranging from selections like Apple Berry Pie & Strawberry Watermelon Rose. This is what sets Nookie apart from well-known frozen yogurt brand, LlaoLlao. Their interesting take on yogurt creations have definitely taken the public by storm; it’s all over Instagram. (As usual.) The popularity of Nookie has been continuously increasing since it’s opening, with more flavours being rolled out in order to suit the palate of the crowd better. Nookie also benefits from its accessible location which is right outside the side of PoMo, drawing the likes of LASALLE, SOTA & Kaplan students of the nearby schools.

Prices for Nookie are quite affordable, with a cup of their pre-existing choices going for only $6.90. Currently, if you like them on their Instagram account, you can also get 10% off.

The many toppings that go into each Nookie frozen yogurt.

Red Velvet Parfait ($6.90) Chocolate Banana Churros ($6.90) These two were from a while back, when Nookie was still trying to get a handle on the whole business. These flavours were pretty good but sort of lack any diversity. Both were similar to each other in terms of topping with only the "Crumbs" that differed from each other. Nonetheless it was a good start which paved the road for improvement.

Apple Berry Pie ($6.90) This was my second cup of Nookie. Having seen many people order this flavour on Instagram, I decided to try it for myself. I actually quite loved it. It tasted exactly like apple pie. One thing to note  was that they actually ran out of granola & had to replaced it with the butterscotch crumble topping. While I didn't try the original variation, I felt that the crumble was PERFECTION to the Apple Berry Pie flavour & overall it was just fantastic.

Strawberry Watermelon Rose ($6.90) One of my friends had this & commented that it tasted kinda sour. (Not sure if it was from the yogurt or something else.) Initially after having this, she felt that LlaoLlao was better. However, after she tried Nookie again on another occasion, she felled in love with it & decided to give it a renewed chance.

Red Velvet ($6.90) The new & improved Red Velvet definitely surpassed its predecessor. The red velvet flavour is enhanced with chunks of red velvet cake crumble, which gives an extremely lovely cocoa taste to the frozen yogurt. This tasted a lot more like red velvet than their original variation. Recommended.

Mango Sticky Rice ($6.90) Another one of their latest flavours, my friend & I were pretty excited to try it. Based off the well-known Thai dessert, Nookie has put their own spin on the concept with mochi balls acting as the "sticky rice" of the dessert. Gastronomy spheres are also added for a burst of flavour with each bite. While you won't exactly find any sticky rice it in, the flavours are perfectly recreated & I was quite impressed. Highly recommended.

Another new flavour! Green Tea lovers rejoice!

Green Tea Black Sesame ($6.90) Quite a few of my friends are huge fans of anything green tea, hence it seemed as though this was created just for them. Along with a generous serving of green tea sauce, the yogurt comes with a crumble of black sesame. While I did quite like the overall taste of this, one of my friends commented that the green tea tasted different than the usual ones she had.  (Something along the lines of "Like a cheaper version.")

Worth A Visit/Revisit?
Just like Montana Brew Bar, the key to Nookie’s popularity is affordability of their products while retaining a commitment to quality. This keeps the customers coming back & I’m not ashamed to say that I’ll have Nookie over LlaoLlao any day. While currently they still seem to be in an experimental phase with their flavours; hence there are still some hits & misses, I find them all very well done & I would definitely head back for more whenever I get a craving for froyo.
