Yagööt Yogurt

SO one thing that is really popular out in California are the delicious frozen yogurt places pinkberry and Ce Fiore. Of course pinkberry is only located in New York and California (if you are going to be hip, you’re going to be hip there) and Ce Fiore in California, Nevada, Hawaii, and Washington. Oh and Kentucky. But Bardstown Road in Louisville is REALLY hip and it totally fits in. I used to stop by when I visited my friends who went to UofL (University of Louisville.) And now, Cincinnati has it’s own : Yagööt. Yagööt (which is REALLY annoying to type because of the umlats…) is a delicious little place in the new shopping area in Norwood (a city within Cincinnati..) that is owned by a local bakery, Busken. Their ads claim it is the “original Tingly-Tart Yogurt” - which bothers me a bit since Ce Fiore and pinkberry DEFINTELY came first, but whatever. It’s still delicious, and tastes a bit different. It is a bit creamier (my boyfriend says that the others feel more like ice and are a bit more watered down) and it tastes less like yogurt - which I agree. I do love both Ce Fiore and yagööt, but I’d agree with the boy. It is different. And different is almost always good :)


You can see the design is similar to some of the Ce Fiores and pinkberries (google image search and you will see this pretty easily). But not many in Cincinnati are going to know that or care. I’m just SO happy we have one. And boy, is it delicious. They have about the same choices in toppings as the other two places, plus a coffee ice cream (which I was not willing to try - I hate coffee). I got an original with mochi (theirs was really good) and blackberries and devoured it. I even finished off my boyfriend yogurt. And I’m trying to convince him to take me this weekend - as it if on the way to the grocery store :). If you are ever in Cincinnati, seriously stop by.

Anyone else loving the Haruhi headband ? Because I am. I wore it for my critique today. I just feel so cute in it!

EDIT Maxine Blotter posted this, and I felt it necessary to say, that apparently Busken was serving this yogurt back in the 1970s/1980s. I knew the Hyde Park location had been serving it in early 2008 and then opened the store, but not that. So how cool is that?? It’s too bad this store wasn’t around years ago, I would’ve loved to have this around during high school.

    Great post - I tried it the other day and LOVED it too! I do remember busken serving frozen yogurt in their downtown bakery restaurants in the 70’s and 80’s. I guess after all these years they brought back their original recipe. Who says we’re behind the times in Cinci!

    I completely agree with the previous post. Busken actually served the tart yogurt in the Yagoot Salad Plate form back in the day when they had restuarants downtown. That must be where the “original” came from, because it truly did start there. Amazing.

    Anything the Busken family does is GREAT!!! in my eyes and on my tastebuds. What a great atmosphere and design of this fabulous yogurt place and how lucky Cincinnati is to have the Busken business expand into serving yogurt as they did in the past. Let’s all go and support this new business!!!
