Golden Spoon yuzu/yuja yogurt

Golden Spoon yuzu/yuja yogurt

Southern California–based Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt introduced a new nonfat flavor in May 2010 that would make any Korean feel at home.

Yuzu — yuja, in Korean — yogurt is one of the company’s newest offerings, inspired by its four Japanese locations: two in Tokyo and one each in Hiroshima and Osaka.

Golden Spoon of Long Beach announced the introduction of this new flavor:

Yuzu is a tart flavor which developed in our Tokyo Golden spoon. Yuzu is a citrus flavor, and it tastes great with fresh fruit and mochi.

According to on the announcement on theirGolden Spoon Butler page on Facebook, the yuzu yogurt was released as a “secret test flavor.” I didn’t find reference to it on the corporate site.

I purchased a “small” 8-ounce serving at a Bay Area location and shared with my husband. It was tart but refreshing. My father-in-law said it would make an excellent palate cleanser between courses; he meant that as a compliment.

I added some chopped peanuts to the mix. The slight saltiness did help balance the tartness of the yuzu yogurt. As long as this market test lasts, I’ll be a willing subject.

  1. This sounds like something I would love. I found your blog today through Lauren's Little Kitchen, and I'm so glad that I did…my best friend is traveling to Korea next week, and I'm so jealous!

  2. I wish I could go back for a visit, too.

  3. Wow, I didn't realize frozen yogurt was that much work. : )
