Fro-yo girl here. Golden Spoon, a California chain that’s almost 30 years old, is still serving things up old school style at its Valencia location. While Golden Spoon announced it would convert existing locations to a self-serve format, the Valencia location is still full service only. Pick a size, flavor and toppings and the employee makes the fro-yo creation for you. Each creation is served with a golden colored spoon.

 

Fro-yo prices: Mini ($2.45)/ Regular ($3.75)/ Large ($3.95)/ Quart ($7.25)

 

The interior of the shop reminds me of an old fashioned ice cream parlor. The décor is simple with white and red tiles and black tables. Golden Spoon develops their own fro-yo flavors and has about 80 flavors. Most flavors are non-fat and sweet. The Valencia shop carries 8 rotating flavors a day.

The toppings are what you’d find at many fro-yo shops. They have fresh fruit, mochi, candy, nuts, graham cracker crust, whipped cream, chips, sprinkles, sauces, brownies, cookie dough and cheesecake bites. You can get cake and waffle cones.

 

Some old school frozen yogurt places are extremely generous with their fro-yo portion sizes. Golden Spoon is not one of those places though they were generous with toppings. When you get a regular size cup of fro-yo, you can have three spoonfuls of any of their toppings (you can choose up to three different toppings) for 95 cents.

 

Golden Spoon claims their fro-yo is richer and thicker, making it the fro-yo of choice for ice cream lovers. I haven’t found their fro-yo to be that rich or thick. It tends to be softer and not as thick as the yogurt at other places. Their Double Vanilla fro-yo was extremely sweet. The Simply Tart fro-yo does not have a pleasant taste. It is mildly tart. The coffee fro-yo wasn’t bad but not as rich or thick as I had hoped. I did like how it wasn’t super sweet.
