Rock It Swirl Takes Over Eggettes in Glen Park
Fro-yo girl here. Eggettes Glen Park recently remodeled and rebranded. Rock It Swirl, the self-serve fro-yo area within Eggettes has now taken over. The store is still in transition but the eggettes (Hong Kong style egg puffs) are gone and so are all traces of the cute Eggettes mascot. At one point the Eggettes mascot was on the Rock It Swirl cups (they have plain cups now) and you could get a side order for eggettes for $1 with a fro-yo purchase. The sign above the door (a temporary one) says Rock It Swirl. The fro-yo section hasn't grown and the decor hasn't changed that much. They still have the same furniture and vending machines with cutesy toys (e.g., Hello Kitty, Disney, Winnie the Pooh). The walls are red now. The receipt says Rock It Swirl.
The menu has changed. They added a new gelato case with Gelato Classico. You can still get boba drinks (but not as many varieties as before) and savory snacks - but no eggettes. The eggettes were my favorite thing they carried.
Does this move signal an increased commitment to their fro-yo concept? Not sure - we'll see.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
