Sweet 16 @ Times Square, Penang.
Yogurt and ice cream yogurt can be pretty commonly found in Penang, but its definitely my first time when it comes to ice blended yogurt. Out of curiosity, I've decided to check it out. Get to know this outlet from their Facebook Page, during this period of time, they are doing their opening promotion, where one is entitle to a buy one free one promotion (up to 4th of March only). Ice blended yogurt is not the only thing that they serve in Sweet 16, snacks such as Rojak (Malaysian Fruit Salad), deep fried chicken cutlets, deep fried potato fritters etc...Flavored drinks are also available. It is very easy to locate Sweet 16 at Penang Times Square, the new shop is just located right beside to Face To Face Noodle Shop and few shops away from Taiwan Ko Cha Bi. Choices-wise, are pretty limited, but what makes it special is their toppings. Add on each type of topping for Rm1, the toppings available are very special and unique, some of the not-so-common toppings are Yogurt Popping (some ball-like thing that consists of yogurt) and Ai-Yu. For the ice blended yogurt, one may opt for the ala carte (with no toppings) OR the combo (choose any three toppings).
Kiwi Flavored Ice Blended Yogurt (Rm4.90 ala carte, topping Ai-Yu Rm1). The layered ice blended yogurt was topped with a layer of sugar syrup and some freshly cut kiwi fruit. The syrup was a bit sweet in my opinion, but due to the sourish nature of yogurt, it makes the whole dessert quite well-balanced. The ice does not stand for a long time, it melts in a short time, which you may have to enjoy your dessert fast. As for the Ai-Yu, it does not possess any significant taste but it does complemented well with the ice blended yogurt.
Peach Flavored Ice Blended Yogurt (Rm4.90 ala carte, topping Grass Jelly Rm1). The ice was filled with the strong peach flavored and the sweetness was just right together with the grass jelly topping. If you are a peach-lover, then you will probably want to try this out.
Honeydew Flavored Ice Blended Yogurt (Rm4.90 ala carte, topping Yogurt Popping Rm1) The taste pretty much similar to Kiwi's but this dessert has a very refreshing Honeydew flavor instead. The topping was very impressive either, in fact, I would love to recommend my readers to try these Yogurt Popping. These Yogurt Popping have very unique texture and when you bite into it, the yogurt will oozes out, and of course, they were a bit sour.
This was the only non-yogurt dessert we had that day, it was Chocolate Ice (Rm5.90). The cornflakes were complimentary, it looked sweet to me, but i was wrong, in fact, the ice was not sweet at all. It has a very mild sweetness with a hint of chocolate taste. It suits for those who are looking for chocolate flavored ice but dislike over sweetened dessert.
