Noe Tuttimelon Grand Opening Coverage
Fro-yo girl here. What a crazy day (August 8) with so many fro-yo grand opening celebrations (Tuttimelon Noe Valley/SF, Harmony Yogurt in Burlingame, FruittiYogi in Alameda and Golden Spoon in San Jose).
First stop: Tuttimelon’s grand reopening with free fro-yo from 12 – 2 PM. The first 50 people received a door prize (I didn’t see what it was) while the first 500 received a raffle ticket with a chance to win an iPod Touch and Nintendo DSI. Tuttimelon Bear insisted that we go there first and was thrilled to see Mr. Tuttimelon (Roy L. there). My Tuttimelon original tart with blueberries, watermelon cubes, cantaloupe, strawberries, lychee, granola, fresh and chewy strawberry mochi, and graham crackers was truly tuttilicious.
I asked about their new flavored, super fresh mochi balls. You can’t find them at every Tuttimelon location. So far I’ve only had strawberry. Look for blueberry, green apple and melon mochi too.
The Noe Valley location had pictures of cupcakes – and a case full of gourmet cupcakes from Sweetface Bakery. Loved the Hostess Who? Cupcake! Tuttimelon Bear was also a fan. A true dessert mecca, Noe Tuttimelon offers gelato, fro-yo (2 flavors a day), parfaits, smoothies, Leonidas chocolates and cupcakes. It’s a smaller location with no indoor seating.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
