Hoboken Yogurt Wars?

The Hoboken Yogurt Triangle

Who saw this yogurt surge coming in Hoboken? Is yogurt such a big item these days? Especially “self-serve” yogurt by the ounce?

Just this year, we’ve had THREE new yogurt options in Hoboken. First, Koa Koa self-serve yogurt opens up at 410 Washington Street. Then, OYO Organic self-serve yogurt starts construction (now open at 517 Washington Street). Then Asian restaurant Wild Ginger (518 Wash) enters the fray with low-ball prices too! 16 cents less per ounce!

Seems like there’s some fierce yogurt competition in midtown Hoboken!

Have you tried all three? Who’s the leader? Is three self-serve frozen yogurts enough for the yogurt craving zombies of Hoboken?

    Hmmm. It’s 10 degrees outside, I could go for a chili-flavored yogurt heated up to 100 degrees Celsius.

    Funny you bring this up. I was wondering the same thing. Fort Lee has a couple of yogurt places; they seem to do well. Maybe they think the popularity will carry over to Hoboken.

    Hoboken’s pervasive proliferation of frozen yogurt purveyors is perplexing.

    If one place offers pizza flavored yogurt and dry cleaning drop-off, that will knock the other two out.

      …and if they offer dog grooming and dog walking they’ll get more walk-in traffic.

      Ahhh, the smell of artificial pizza-flavored yogurt, dry-cleaning, and wet dog….smells like victory.

    A food establishment that needs special zoning approval for dogs? No thanks. Sounds like 2 1/2 years of red tape just to open the doors.
