Self-serve frozen yogurt is not a brand new concept.
But it is in our kudzu-covered corner of the world.
Chad and I spied Sweet Frog on a weekend jaunt to the town nearest us bearing more than a Wal-Mart and made a mental note: There is FROZEN YOGURT nearby!!!
In days gone by, my sister and I used to make special trips to TCBY… until they removed themselves from our neighborhood (rude.).
Since then frozen yogurt has been my dessert unicorn.
It has existed only in theory… and on rare occassions in my local grocery store (RARE.).
Underneath the fruit in my cup you will find the flavors of Country Vanilla, Georgia Peach, Chocolate, Strawberry, and Raspberry Pomegranate (soooooo good; it’s probably my favorite). I get a little crazy with the fruit toppings: strawberries, BLACKBERRIES, and blueberries. Granola gave me some crunch. I added a square of poundcake just because I could. I was totally pleased with my masterpiece.
I am not going to pretend to know what exactly is in Chad’s extra super duper large cup… I know I spied him reaching for chocolate, peanut butter, and cappuccino. I lost track of him after that. There’s a lot of candy having a party on Chad’s frozen yogurt with some strawberries and hot fudge. He totally didn’t notice the girl’s eyes bulge when he weighed it at the cash register (one day I will attempt to photograph the sheer volume of food this man consumes in a day… ).
We sat in the sunshine on the back of the car savoring our unicorn treats.
It reminded me of Rainbow Brite.
This is what a happy weekend looks like.
Also there is a flavor called Maple Bacon Donut. True story.
