Yogurtland Now Has Milk Tea Frozen Yogurt

To be quite frank, I’ll always save room for milk tea and boba after a meal. It’s the post-dessert dessert, a sweet finish to wash down everything. Yogurtland’s newest offering circumvents this whole process for me with their new Milk Tea Frozen Yogurt. Let’s just get straight to the milk tea by making it your dessert, efficiency people, it’s a wonder.

The classic boba drink flavor is a perfect pairing with Yogurland’s limited time only Rainbow Jellies topping, which I’m sure makes for a sweet and refreshing treat with each scoop.

This Milk Tea Frozen Yogurt is available only at participating locations, while supplies last.
