They've been saying the nutritional data will be "coming soon" since they opened so I'm anxious to find out what's in this stuff and how fat I'm getting off of it. I was once addicted to Bloomingdale's frozen yogurt, then Pinkberry, now this right in my own backyard! I can't say which one is the best of the three but knowing Oko is all natural and an environmentally responsible choice makes me love it even more.If youve had the other two I'd say this is creamier and less icy than Pinkberry but not as creamy as Bloomingdales. It melts too fast - I hope they can improve on that. UPDATE: With all the controversy surrounding Pinkberry (what is it?!) it's nice to know that in fact, oko is all natural and only 90 calories per serving!

As a mother of my first child, I am so encouraged to know that eco-friendly businesses like OKO are out there. Their banana split is to die for. I don't feel guilty eating it or letting my daughter share in the pleasure. Love the compressed sunflower seed countertop!!! I rather spend my hard earned $ at OKO knowing that they're contributing to the preservation of our environment for future generations like my daughter. Will be back really soon!

Would love to see more of these - especially in the Manhattan. No brainer vs other yogurt shops. It's cheaper, tastes better, it's better for you and they're thoughtful about the environment!

Popped into this place last week to grab a snack and was very impressed by both the great yogurt and the whole green concept. Asked an employee what the deal was and he explained that their goal was to be a totally eco-friendly biz from the all natural (and yummy) yogurt to the recycled countertops and containers made of corn. We need more businesses like this and it's a great addition to the Slope. Will def be back and hope to see more OKO's around NYC.
