A new style of melt-in-the-mouth treats is coming to the Sunshine Coast, and a series of designer dessert collaborations with renowned chefs will be the icing on the cake.

Sweet tooths will rejoice when Australia’s fastest-growing frozen yogurt brand brings its ninth store – the first in Queensland – to Noosa’s world-famous Hastings Street.

Residents and visitors alike are being invited to “share the Chi” of the “almost guilt-free pleasure” of Yo-Chi.

Its menu of frozen flavours includes staples of chocolate, signature tart yogurt, strawberry, and classic vanilla, as well as a rotation of seasonal surprises such as taro, coconut and mango.

The much-loved in-store buffet of toppings encourages customers to create their own masterpieces and to mix-and-match flavour combinations.


Adding to the excitement of the new store, Yo-Chi Noosa will launch the first of its limited-edition designer toppings, just three days after opening.

The Pierrick Boyer salted caramel mud cake.

The toppings will be created in conjunction with a roster of Australia’s best dessert chefs.

The monthly roll-out of sweet collaborations launches in August with revered and award-winning Melbourne pastry chef Pierrick Boyer.

Paris-born and Melbourne-raised, Boyer is known for his amazing cakes and pastries.

With a passion for patisserie from a young age, his skills have earned him the title of Gault and Millau Pastry Chef of the Year – the equivalent of a 3-star Michelin rating in the world of desserts – as well as having his peanut chocolate-raspberry gateaux named the Best Gateau in Melbourne, and one of the best chocolate cakes in Victoria.


Rising to the challenge of the brand’s first collaboration, Boyer has created a salted caramel mud cake that is beyond decadent.

Dense and delicious caramel-flavoured mud cake is layered with lashings of caramel, encased in firm chocolate.

It pairs with Yo-Chi’s original, vanilla or salted butterscotch-flavoured frozen yogurts, drizzled with caramel.

Boyer’s salted caramel mud cake topping will be available in all Yo-Chi stores during August.

Future collaborations will be with Darren Purchese, Tokyo Lamington, Anna Polyviou and Kirsten Tibballs.

Yo-Chi Noosa will open on Friday, July 29, at 5/30 Hastings Street (upstairs, next to Rip Curl). Visit the website for more.
