It has developed more than 50 flavors of frozen yogurt (such as Green Tea, Dark Chocolate, pistachio).  To add on to the healthiness, Berrylite boosts the yogurt concept with the most fresh fruit toppings (pomegranate, passion fruit, pomelo) in Singapore. The fruits are cut fresh daily at each store, and are never frozen.
