MOO COW Store Tour

We had all meet up at Moo Cow in Publika before we take a ride to the Moo Cow factory! Moo Cow is a bright, happy and fun place to be with!! The entire shop is filled with wooden wall, colourful moo cow and friends photos, along with bright colours, wooden table and chair with arrays of colourful toppings for the frozen yogurt!! It’s just brings out the happy feeling to walk into the Moo Cow store, just like a modern farm!

At Moo Cow, you can have frozen yogurt with toppings of your choice! You must try this Frozen Yogurt because they taste much better than conventional ice creammm… The texture is much smoother and lighter too…

Moo Cow6 Peach Jam and Oreo Crumbs are my favourite!

Here are some of the idea how to pair the toppings to your frozen yogurt! You just need to add RM 1.00 to add other topping on top of below selections… All the goodness to choose from.. Woow

If you want something that is both yummy and healthy to drink, you can try their newly introduced Yogurt Drink which comes in three flavours such as original, strawberry and blueberry. There is a special promotion now where it’s only RM 10 for Trio Pack consist of all three flavours as it will be RM 3.50 if you buy a single bottle!

I personally love the Blueberry one!! Well honestly I love all of them but my love for blueberries fruit is much more, so yeah I might be biased.. Nevertheless all the yogurt drink taste so smooth and not overly sweet which brings blend of balance in taste (Better than those selling in supermarket as most of them are concentrated sweet) … I can actually taste the real fruit flavour every time I took a sip!!! Yummy :-)
