Local Yogurt - 7/29/2009

I heard about the opening of a new ice cream store and, like a good ice cream fanatic, had to try it.

Local Yogurt

The store is called Local Yogurt. They serve actual frozen yogurt (aka "frogurt" but never "froyo"). Most frozen yogurt is just light ice cream but the original flavor at Local Yogurt has a wonderfully tangy taste to it, like real yogurt. Who'd have thought? They have 3 other flavors that they rotate regularly which are not as tart but definitely delicious. I've seen blueberry, chocolate, peanut butter, butter pecan, and others so far. My first time I had peanut butter frogurt with potato chips. This time around, pictured above, was original flavor with blackberries and cubed mochi (a glutenous rice substance that is like gummi that does not freeze up in the yogurt. They have beaucoups of other toppings too, including Fruity Pebbles, many different fruits, chocolate curls, and candy bars. Of all of the ice cream markets that already exist (gelato eaten with small spoons, Dairy Queen eaten by the bucketful, Cold Stone eaten after some massaging), Local Yogurt is already carving out a niche for itself with a unique idea and a product that won't impact your waistline as severely as most of its competitors.
