Razzy Fresh Frozen Yogurt = Self-Serve!

Razzy Fresh Frozen Yogurt Grand Opening!
Razzy Fresh Frozen Yogurt Grand Opening!

The recent grand opening of Razzy Fresh on Murray Ave guaranteed Squirrel Hill a seat on the fro-yo bandwagon (right next to Oakland and Shadyside). This area has no shortage of ice-cream stores (nor a shortage of pizza or coffee shops), but who eats ice-cream anymore?

At about $.40 an ounce, Razzy Fresh offers 6 random frozen yogurt flavors everyday (9 if you count the swirls). Some of the choices include original, raspberry, taro, cheesecake, red velvet cake, cookies and cream, vanilla, passion fruit, and even a really delicious peanut butter.

The coolest thing about is that it’s self-serve! That means you’re in control of how much you get and how long it takes to get it. After dispensing, you make a left turn and stock up on fruity/crunchy/sweet toppings before checking out.

The second coolest thing is that they stay open until 11pm (even though 12am would be even cooler – at least on weekends).

Back in December of 2009, the owner of Razzy Fresh, James Chen, told Pop City that he chose Squirrel Hill because “the economy feels strong and the customer base feels right”… but does he still feel this way after the neighboring Panera Bread and Barnes and Noble bookstore closed for good? Despite all the businesses closing in the 15217 zip code, Mr. Chen must know what he’s talking about because his yogurt shop has been jam-packed since the first day it opened.

Are you too lazy to serve yourself?

    Just wanted to know all of the ingredient in a Razzy Fresh portion?
    Is it natural or does it contain alot of chemicals? How do I find out?

      That’s a good question. Not sure if all of their flavors are 100% natural, but their fruity flavors do contain fresh fruits blended inside. We confirmed with the owners that their yogurt does indeed have active cultures (pretty sure it has to have active cultures if they call it “yogurt”) but that doesn’t mean it’s all natural. The Razzy Fresh website does not claim that they serve all natural products. We will try to find out the answer to your question.

      On the other hand, Sweet Berry in Oakland definitely serves all natural frozen yogurt. You can find their banner in our local sponsors section at the top of this page. If you click it, you will see that their site clearly states that it is “all natural nonfat frozen yogurt”.

    UPDATE: It appears that Razzy Fresh has changed their hours to 11:30pm everyday. These might just be summer hours, or maybe the demand for self-serve yogurt is just so high!
