If you can handle the parking situation then this is the best choose your own adventure ice cream place around. They always have a line for good reason. Flavors like Snickerdoodle Crunch, and Rosewater Ripple will entice.

Best ever build your own ice cream place. They have a large variety of ice cream that you can select from here and toppings as well. Like cereals, candy bars, and fruits. There is usually a line at night though even on cold days.

Yum. Love their frozen yogurt. In the heart of Old Town Pasadena, so parking is ridiculous. But if your already in the area, go for it. Your tastebuds will thank you

Inspiration for Cold Stone? This place is the original! With all the frozen yogurt places popping up all over, you'd think 21 Choices' business would be lacking, but it continues to boom. People line up for this organic frozen yogurt because, simply put, it is the best! For starters, their flavors like "white butterfinger magic" and "lemon cookie bar" already have toppings mixed into them. And it gets better once you add your own mix-ins the same way you would at Cold Stone. They have pretty much every topping you could imagine so be prepared to experience some major indecision-but in a good way. If the frozen yogurt itself wasn't enough to put a smile on your face, the staff here is so incredibly friendly, it's near impossible to leave in a bad mood.

Pros: Friendly staff, best frozen yogurt, organic

Cons: Traffic to Pasadena=no fun

I love this place. I live in Downtown L.A., but I have no problem making the drive down to Pasadena for this delightful treat. The frozen yogurt is always the highest quality - very light and creamy and smooth, with no weird aftertaste or that sour yogurt flavor. It's impossible to believe this stuff is a low-cal treat. The flavors change daily and are posted on their website. The best I've had there is Cookies & Cream, but it's impossible to go wrong, even with their standard Vanilla. The best part about this place is the endless array of mix-ins. The combination possibilities will stretch your creative culinary muscle. Try pairing banana and macadamia nuts in Valharona Chocolate, or add animal crackers to Vanilla Bean. They have every mix-in fathomable, from fresh fruits to cereal to Twinkies. The only drawbacks are its location, parking (downtown Pasadena can get crazy at night), and the fact that there is ALWAYS a line. But the line moves fast, and the wait (and the drive) is totally worth it.

I love this place!!! My friends and I have definitely gotten into the southern california forzen yogurt craze, but I often find myself missing the real desserty feel of ice cream with mix ins (cold stone?), 21 choices fills that void without the high calories of ice cream! The yogurt is alot creamier than other frozen yogurt places, but still not too filling. I love that they give you a decent sized portion of mix-ins and actually mix them in like cold stone, not just place a few on top like other frozen yogurt places. Its fun to try their daily made flavors and they have TONS of mix-ins which give you endless creative options. On top of all this it is great that they use biodegradeable bowls and spoons and use organic and fresh ingredients. Its totally worth the wait or the slightly higher cost.

It is very creamy yogurt. Check out for the daily special. It should be your first time to check out when you step in.

Even though the place is tiny and always crowded, I love the variety and creamy deliciousness at this place. It's kinda like Coldstone in that they mix in different toppings, but it's better because they change the flavors of their treats periodically. It's like the proverbial box of chocolates...you never know what you'll be able to get!

Pros: Friendly service and really good frozen yogurt

Located on a corner near a bookstore and some great eateries in Old Town, this 21 Choices is a great place to grab a cold treat after lunch on a warm sunny day. The staff is very friendly here and have made some great recommendations.

This is a great place to pick up your dessert. While there's not a great place to sit with your fro yo - you can get it and walk around old town pas. They will mix any toppings you like into your choice of yogurt just like coldstone. They also have ready made flavors that are extremely tasty! My favorite is Cookie Parade, which is vanilla and mothers cookies - and something else that I can't really identify, but it's yummy none-the-less.

I never went in there because it always seemed so crowded, but now I see why! It's amazing! The staff was super friendly and knowledgable. They let me taste my creation before I paid to make sure I was totally satisfied. And needless to say, I was. :)

I got a small with half vanilla and half peach pineapple sorbet. Portion was good and it was really yummy. I like the vanilla frozen yogurt because it had nice flavor not like the vanilla extract flavor. The texture was awesome too. You can get topping and they will mix it for you similiar to coldstone. I didn't get any mix ins since I don't like melted ice cream or frozen yogurt. They change the flavors of frozen yogurt from time to time. That day I went, they had vanilla, peach pineapple sorbet, root beer and chocolate. However, the place seemed kinda dirty. The staff's clothing and apron had chocolate and other mystery stuff all over. The frozen platform they do the mix in seemed kinda icky (that's why I skipped the mix in). Fortunately, I didn't get sick from eating it so I think you'll be fine. :)

This is a very nice place to go to when you're just walking around Old Town Pasadena. It's a frozen yogurt shop and is conveniently located in the middle of Old Town. You have so so many to pick from and the good thing is that it's yogurt instead of ice cream so it's a bit different and very refreshing! Must stop by if you are in the area.

PROS: Price and quality
CONS: Long lines

I am a fan of icecream but it is always a little too heavy. 21 choices is fresh and you can add fruit. You can have something sweet without it being horrible for you. One warning do not go at night on a warm day. I went last night and stood in line for a good 30-45 minutes. It is a great product but the line was ridiculous and when people add mix ins it takes even longer. Give it a chance you may never go to Coldstone again!

I love this place. The mood is always upbeat and they have a vast variety of toppings and mix-ins. My favorite is vanilla yogurt mixed in with circus animal cookies. They also have a good variety of specials, and you can request as many samples as you'd like. One time, I had strawberries mixed in with a fruity yogurt. Unfortunately, because the fruity yogurts are more like sorbets it came out a bit watery. The clerk was nice and gave me a certificate good for a free yogurt on my next visit. Rock!

PROS: great variety, upbeat atmosphere, people aim to please
CONS: usually a line

The folks behind the counter are always friendly & helpful and won't let you pay for your frozen yogurt unless you're happy. They offer free samples to make sure you order something you'll like, and if you have toppings mixed in, they ask you to taste the finished product to see if it turned out the way you hoped it would. Yummy and inventive flavors mixed up fresh every day. A little sign next to the register says that they won't accept tips because your smile is all the thanks they need. Aawww.

So, the name may be somewhat of a rip off of 31 flavors, but don't let it bother you because this is the best yogurt place I've been to. It's like a Coldstone in the sense that they mix in things like candy bars, fresh or frozen fruit, cookie dough, etc. The difference is that it's yogurt instead of ice cream. They have pre-made selections too that are cheaper because you don't have to pay the extra money for a "topping" (you can have them put it on top or mix it in). The pre-made flavors are either chocolate, vanilla, or one of those flavors mixed with reeses, oreos, margarita mix, whatever they feel like for that day. It's simply amazing!
Because it's in Old Town, parking can be a pain, and also it is usually busy enough to have a line out the door. The workers are efficient and quick, but still very friendly and welcoming. This is a top-notch yogurt place!!!

THis place has great frozen yogurt, but the associates always seem to be in your face! If you don't like to be conversated with all the time or if you are having a bad day this place is NOT for you, the people are extremely friendly. It is hard to park here because meters are so scarce, but it is near alot of other places so you can make all your runs at once.

This place is kind of like Coldstone Creamery but it has all frozen yogurt. The employees are kind and helpful and they sing a lot. It is a very nice atmosphere. They make smoothies, mix ice cream with fruit for you, pretty much anything you would want from them.
GO HERE! I recommend it!

21 choices is the best frozen yogurt place around...actually i would say even better than an ice cream place like cold stone's. their concept is the same as cold stone's, where you can pick mix-ins and they will custom make it for you on their cold marble slab. i don't even get the mix-ins because they offer such a wide variety of pre-mixed flavors. of course you can get your ordinary vanilla or chocolate, but there's always a great new flavor, like pumpkin, or coffee chocolate chip.

PROS: friendly staff, free samples, variety

My fiancee and I love this place. I always ask to go there after we go out in Old Town. They prepare their yogurt like Cold Stone parepares their ice cream - by mixing all of the toppings you want togther on a frozen slab! The yogurt is good and we love coming up with different combinations of toppings and yogurt. If you are looking for a fun treat this is the place to go.

PROS: good yogurt, fun atmosphere, friendly staff

If you are a fan of frozen yogurt, then this is a great place for you. This location is always crowded so you will have to wait in line but they do a pretty good job of getting you through quickly. They have all kinds of things that you can have mixed into your yogurt or they have some coices that have been premixed already. It's not a super cheap treat but it's fun every once in awhile on a hot day.

The best frozen yogurt in the LA area is here. I live nowhere near Pasadena, but I will go out of my way to get to 21 Choices. They make their own, unique frozen yogurt flavors then mix them with toppings (a la Cold Stone). Even without toppings, theyogurt is excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and it's not just because they want a tip (they don't allow them!) They're so interested in you liking what you've selected that they have you sample it before they even give you your order.
