“Great Yogurt”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Ultimate Yogurt is a great place to go. If you have never been it seems a bit confusing, but when you get inside you will see different stations of yogurt to choose from along with many,many toppings. The yogurt choices do change. You can ask for a sample spoon and cup which I recommend you do. Then go around and try the different yogurts. When you are ready to pick your favorite or favorites, get the size of cup you want from the rack and start pumping your yogurt. Then go around and top with whatever you want, nuts, candy, syrups, etc. The choices are many. Then put the cup on the scale. The cost is determined by the weight. There is seating availabe. It is located in the arcata plaza which has many fun and interesting shops to visit. Arcata is a college town so during the school year on the evengings it can be busy, but it is worth it. Catch a Crabs baseball game while you are in town for the perfect afternoon!

“weak flavors”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

just because it's on the plaza it's getting lots of customers, but to me it's expensive & the flavors don't beat those of Redwood Yogurt in North town.

“Gluttony welcome. Totally overwhelming.”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

You have to have serious self-control here. Otherwise your yogurt ends up with too much and costing way too much. My kids yogurts all turned into disgusting soup they wouldn't even finish, though I had been restraining them while they constructed their towers of sugar and food coloring.

The things that really gets me is that it's a chain store in a town that already has a locally owned and operated frozen yogurt shop that supports local schools with free yogurt to students to reward reading and has free events for all ages all the time, as well as two local ice-cream shops within a few blocks.

“Yummy Yogurt”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

We love to go to Ultimate Yogurt. We love it for many reasons: they have a wonderful selection of frozen yogurts...they give you taster cups so you can try the many kinds....you can mix and match yogurt flavors....they have so many toppings and syrups and candies...healthy options like fruit....and classic yogurt toppings....they are delish and my kids love the fact they get to control what toppings and how much of each they put on! Go here...you won't be disappointed!

“Chain Yogurt”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

Unlike the local mom and pop yogurt place not much farther away, this is more expensive and not even the fruit is local or organic. All those "flavors" are just that. I much prefer the local Ice cream shop where they make everything themselves, allowing them to experiment with all kinds of added goodies that are in season.
