Tutti Frutti’s Montclair Village location (a quaint neighborhood in the Oakland Hills) is their newest in the Bay Area and its third location in Oakland.
Tutti Frutti is one of the largest frozen yogurt chains in the world and one that allows store operators more freedom to carry other non-frozen yogurt offerings. Their Oakland Chinatown location offers sushi. Their Milpitas location sells boba milk tea drinks, Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, snow ice and roti buns. The Montclair Village location sells boba milk tea drinks.
The Montclair Village Tutti Frutti is a smaller location with limited seating and simple, cheerful décor. They offer 10 self-serve frozen yogurt flavors and a small toppings bar with candy, chips, brownies, nuts, mochi, popping boba, jellies, cookies, cookie dough, and fruit for 43 cents an ounce. While they didn’t have many types of toppings, they did have some nicer offerings like madeleines, cream wafer cookies, three flavors of mini Kit Kats (milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate), and wafer roll cookies.
Tutti Frutti’s soy frozen yogurt is hard to find and it was disappointing not to find it here. Also, there was only one tart flavor, original tart. The Thai iced tea frozen yogurt was creamy, very sweet, mild and pleasing. Original tart was a good rendition because it was flavorful, thick, creamy and tangy. Their fruit flavors tend to be overly sweet and not natural tasting.
The fro-yo flavor selection was disappointing because they only had one tart flavor and no soy flavors (though Tutti Frutti heavily promotes its soy frozen yogurt). The price is higher than average and they didn’t have the cute Tutti Frutti signature spoons with the fruit shapes.
