Llao Llao Frozen Yogurt @ Gurney Plaza, Penang.

Indulge in the extravagant frozen treat without being too worried of the calories, Frozen Yogurt is a good replacement to the usual full-creamed Soft Serve (few calories than the conventional Ice Cream). Llao Llao is a European brand that has taken Singapore and Kuala Lumpur by storm. The chilled sweet treat is well-received by the younger generations, the specialties of Llao Llao Frozen Yogurt would be their premium-sumptuous add-ons. The condiments available vary from Biscuits, Nuts to fresh Fruits. There are different packages available- budget watchers may opt to go for the simple ones (without much add-on) while those with deeper pockets can go for Parfait. Llao Llao Froyo is available at Lower Ground Floor of Gurney Plaza, right next to Boost Fruit Juice. 

Llao Llao's signature Froyo- Sanum (Rm 17.90) allows 3 types of fresh Fruits (choose from Blueberries, Red/Green Grapes, Dragon Fruit, Mangoes, Kiwis and Honeydew), 2 types of Crunchies (Oreo, Lotus Biscuits, Dried Cranberries, Candied Almonds, Candied Sunflower Seeds etc) and 1 type of Sauce (Chocolate, Strawberry, Lotus Biscuit Syrup, Caramel etc). The portion is good enough for 2 eaters and the generosity of adding fresh fruits seems to be promoting health while the candied elements promote happiness; the luscious touch of Sauce adds a sense of luxurious to the iced offering. The Lotus Biscuit dust was a little too fine but it paired well with the Froyo; the addition of Candied Almonds was a wrong decision. The entire concoction was too sweet (together with the Sauce) for me. I'd prefer to have the Froyo alone, without any add-on. It has a well-balanced sweet and sour factor with silky smooth texture, a healthy yet refreshing snack for the sweltering heat.
