Fro-yo on fire

I was attending college at UC Irvine when the first Yogurtland opened up there in 2006. I became a regular at various Yogurtland locations in Orange County for two years. Then, after I moved back to Sacramento, I was pretty excited to find out that one opened here in January (see “Yippee for Yogurtland,” SN&R Food Stuff, March 28). My favorite frozen-yogurt place recently expanded, and its latest location in Fair Oaks (5335 Sunrise Boulevard) is closer to my house than the first Sacramento location (2381 Fair Oaks Boulevard). There's also one in Roseville (3988 Douglas Boulevard) and in Davis (1411 W. Covell Boulevard). Here's what I like: Even though it's an Irvine-based company, it holds its own against Sacramento's numerous quality fro-yo places by offering dozens of seasonal flavors and fresh fruit in its topping bar. And there may be more soon, as Sacramento franchise owner Michael I. Burstein recently told me that Midtown and Elk Grove may be next to get a Yogurtland.
