Golden Spoon Grand Opening Weekend Coverage
Fro-yo girl here. I stopped by Golden Spoon today for some free fro-yo (the promo continues tomorrow from 11 AM – 11 PM). They had 12 flavors to choose from (it’s not self-serve) and 2 of these were tart (mango, simply tart). They have 50 rotating flavors. For toppings, they had candy, cheesecake bites, mochi, granola, sprinkles, and syrups.
I met up with Robert M., their marketing guy, and chatted over a bowl of fro-yo. Robert’s favorite is old fashioned vanilla and he also recommends chocolate malt.
Golden Spoon started out 25 years ago in SoCal, so naturally this franchise specializes in sweet fro-yo. Almost all of the flavors are non-fat (peanut butter is one exception) and their fro-yo does contain live and active cultures. They've developed their own fro-yo recipes.
The San Jose shop is currently under construction and they plan to open on August 8th. That location is larger, so they’ll have space for two more fro-yo machines.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
