Congratulations Tuttimelon on Going International
Fro-yo girl here. A few days ago, Tuttimelon’s first international location, opened its doors (yay!) in Richmond, BC (Canada). Back in January 2009, my wish list for the year included the following: “Tuttimelon’s growth continues: Tuttimelon already has the most locations in the Bay Area (5 in 2008) and there are more on the way. I’m all for the world domination of Tuttimelon!” The Tuttimelon website now lists additional locations to come in Canada, Macau, Hong Kong, China and Southern California. They're not done with the Bay Area either. Watch out world!
My wishes are coming true and I couldn’t be prouder of Tuttimelon and Roy L.
Can you believe that I wrote the very first Yelp review of Tuttimelon ever? I went there on the day it first opened, February 2, 2008. Here’s an excerpt:
“Fro-yo girl here - with your fro-yo scoop. Spotted on Irving St. - the grand opening of Tuttimelon. They have the best toppings I've seen so far, including chestnuts, red beans (not the pureed paste but whole beans), mochi balls, cereal, fresh fruit, chocolate chips, etc. All toppings are clearly labeled. They have the best mochi balls - softer and chewier than the other places.
The original fro-yo is fantastic - strong, tangy taste, creamier and firmer than average consistency. Clean tasting, extra tart or some would say sour. It's fat free with live probiotic cultures too.”
If you happen to be in the Richmond, BC area, be sure to stop by for the tuttilicious celebration on August 22nd.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
