Yogurt used to big in Manila. It was not just the ultimate substitute for ice cream, it was the dessert of choice back then. It’s obvious claim to fame was it being healthy. Was it? Is it now?

My verdict is this. It’s not. When you make a naturally bland and sour mix as sweet as ice cream you actually place more sugar to make that happen. And the toppings which include commercialized chocolates and candies, it just makes it another sweet treat.

Now is BLK 513 in the same neighborhood? Not really. They do have legitimate claims on charcoal benefits and the emphasis on natural sweeteners does make them different. And somehow the Php 185 price tag for create your own tag merits acceptable value.

I got Dark Skim with fruity granola with kiwi, strawberries and Ferrero induced chocolate syrup. The taste was nothing extraordinary. Not too sour nor sweet. A bit of grainy texture is felt. It does fill you up though and one order could be shared by two.

Blk 513 @ S Maison

Still and will always be a fan of this dessert! What more could I ask for! Haha the exageration is real. Kidding aside, this really is a good one, one of the best yogurt I ever had. Especially because you could add fruits, brownies, and sauces that you want. Anything as long as they have it :P Also, the catch is eating yogurt with activated charcoal, but don't worry its edible and good for you.

Yummy froyo! Awesome experience.
I just wish the sauce is poured over nicely to make it look more instagrammable :)

I just feel like my friend came up with a weird combination. : strawberries, kiwi, choco crunchies, and Valhrona dark chocolate sauce, with the activated charcoal black yoghurt. I just know feel like chocolate and yoghurt don't really go well together, at least for my taste. And since we are sort of rushing to finish the cup that's why I wasn't able to really fully enjoy it. I found the taste of the yoghurt underwhelming, but I am willing to give it another try - this time no more rushing, and with the right combination of toppings. 127846

Next to Pinkberry, I think BLK 513's my other favorite froyo place. Went for the Super Skim with grapes and the homemade smores mix. It actually (and surprisingly) worked well together. The smores mix was both crunchy and chewy at the same time while the grapes gave each spoonful some freshness and weren't too sweet or overpowering

As you can see in the picture, I was doing a balancing act with my dark skim cone. Had it with matcha syrup, white chocolate, and strawberries. Finished it in a minute! Please open a branch in the south 128546 coz S Maison isn't south enough 128517

Tried the Raw Cacao Skim Float (Php165) the other day. It might look like a really sulit froyo but don't mistake it for one. It's a drink. Haha

It's made up of the Raw Cacao Skim Milk, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, hot Nutella drizzle, and Valrhona nibs.

Overall, nothing special. It looked full to brim but it's mostly because of the ice. Though it's a plus that you're drinking a healthier version of something that's usually indulgent and not really good for you, I kinda regretted going for this and not ordering a cup of froyo.

BLK partnered with Booky and is currently having a bogo promo for their Dark Skim Cup (save Php185). Just show the staff the code and your good to go! But do it when you get there because there's only ten minutes from claiming before the code expires.

For this visit, I got Malt as my crunch, lychees and strawberries for my fruits and hot nutella chocolate for my sauce. I loved the combination of the flavors but I think the nutella sauce made it too sweet for my liking. But nonetheless, I think BLK has great yogurt and a fresh selection of fruits. Plus, Php95 for that big of a serving is a steal.

I do need to comment on the service though. I find that the staff was unfriendly. He never smiled even once. I even felt like he was annoyed. Even though the product is good, it's a waste if the service is bad.

Got to try their Strawberry Cheesecake sauce the other day. Chose homemade s'mores as my crunch with strawberries as my only fruit. I looove the new sauce! My friend didn't like it though, so I would suggest to get a crunch which is a little sweeter than usual as the strawberry sauce, the base and the fruits are already a little sour. Or you can just choose a sweeter fruit. But if you're a strawberry lover me, the strawberry cheesecake sauce + strawberries + s'mores combination is perfect! 127827127827127827

We went to BLK 513 last Friday for dessert. We didn't feel like having our usual charcoal yogurt with fruits, so we chose to try their float instead.

Matcha Skim Float P145
Matcha skim milk, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, milk jam drizzle. Loved the matcha skim milk! The yogurt wasn't sour. Its taste and texture was more like ice cream. The milk jam drizzle tasted like it had caramelized sugar. I loved that it had some "sugar crystals", much like the top of a creme brulee.

We paid P99 for a cup. Apparently it was on promo (I didn't ask why because the server seemed already a bit irate after we had a hard time deciding what to order 128517)

Finally got to try BLK 513 just because 1) they opened a branch near me, and 2) I wanted to try it after the hype to avoid the crowd (raise your hand if you hate long lines like me128587🏽).

So, I'm not gonna make this too long since I'm probably the 100th reviewer already - for me its just so-so. I was honestly excited to try it because of the "activated charcoal" thing and everyone says its too good but after one scoop, I thought its just a normal frozen yogurt. I'd give them points for cool bases - I got granola for additional 10php, and sauces - of course I got matcha; but they had interesting ones like cereal milk, espresso latte, and peanut butter jam and okay the fact that it has "activated charcoal" but for the taste, I still prefer Pinkberry.

Why? Because its more tangy than BLK 513. And I like my froyo tangy. BLK 513's yogurt is a bit sweet.

I went with my friends and for them it was good. They liked this than Llao llao because they said they have more yogurt in a serving. So I think it would really depend on your tastebuds. If you don't like the tangy taste in yogurt then maybe you'd love BLK 513 more than I do. But for me, its not something I would go back for.128556

For the place.. they have more standing tables than chairs but I'm not sure if this goes to other branches too. We got there a little after lunch and the line wasn't too long yet.

The staff, gotta say there's this one lady who was a bit unwelcoming. She doesn't look too happy taking orders basing from the tone of her voice. She even hit one of our cups while she was preparing them and she had to make another one because it fell on the ground. Anyway maybe she was just having a bad day.128517

Blk 413, finally!! Been eyeing on this yogurt place since they opened up North but just couldn't find the energy to drop by. But with a new store at S Maison, I am glad they adjusted with me. Haha. Sooooo, it's a so-so for me. Yes, their toppings are healthy. Organic and even gluten free so you can expect a healthy option here. However, compared to other yogurt places their yogurt isn't really sour. I'm not sure it it's because I chose a chocolate sauce that it overpower the yogurt or it's just a lot less sour than usual. I like the peach and strawberry topping but very limited option. The place is small but you can stay there and wait till a seat is available. They usually serve in a sanum kind of yogurt; ones with toppings and sauce already. I'd say it's okay. It never hurts to try their yogurt but I think I'm good with my usual.

if you are an adventurous eater, try this youghurt shop, i find it a bit too over priced, the taste will depend on your choices if toppings, like what kind fruit, crunch and sauce. it is a mix-n'-match experiment. as for dining space, it lacks seats and tables and service water for their customers.
