Favorite Froyo Flavor of 2014



Fro-yo girl here. I’ve eaten a lot of froyo this year, about 140 cups and I’ve tried my share of new froyo flavors.

My favorite new flavors this year:

  • Menchie’s Just the Cookie 
  • Menchie’s Zesty Lemon Meringue 
  • Pinkberry’s Mint Chocolate Cookie
  • Yogurtland’s Black Currant Berry Tart
  • Yogurtland’s Cookie Butter 
  • Yogurtland’s Flan
It looks like I really like cookie flavors, that is, froyo with bits of cookie in it. I do love tart flavors but there weren’t as many new tart flavors introduced this year.

My very favorite new froyo flavor of 2014 is…Flan by Yogurtland. Flan was part of the Second Annual Flavor Quest, representing Spain, and I described it as “rich, creamy and with an intense caramelized sugar taste, even better than the earlier Creme Brulee flavor (from Yogurtland) perhaps due to the addition of sweetened condensed milk.”

I’m really hoping it comes back as part of the Fan Choice Awards! Fingers crossed.

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

2014 Bay Area Froyo Year in Review


Fro-yo girl here. It’s time to look about at the year in froyo in the Bay Area. Since I’ve moved to SoCal, this will be the last Bay Area yearly review.

Closings slightly outpaced openings. Most of the openings occurred in the South Bay (San Jose area), followed by San Francisco openings. New froyo shops continued to replace old ones (e.g., Pure Yum, Yogurt in Love, Over the Moon). With two new San Jose locations opening in 2014, Yogurtland has the most locations in the Bay Area of any chain. They plan to open a location in Mountain View, CA soon. Red Mango opened a location at the San Jose International Airport last month.



Bay Area Openings 

  • Easy Breezy Inner Sunset (San Francisco)
  • Fusion Mix (Fremont)
  • Honeyberry (Oakland)
  • Loving Cup Hayes Valley (San Francisco)
  • Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt (Oakridge Mall, San Jose & Dublin)
  • Over the Moon Ice Cream & Cookies (2 locations, they took over Yogorino’s SF locations and kept the yogurt machines, and they still serve froyo)
  • Pure Yum (Fremont, former FreshBerry location)
  • Red Mango (San Jose International Airport)
  • Souvla (San Francisco)
  • YoDo Yogurt (Campbell)
  • Yogurt in Love (Los Gatos)
  • Yogurtland Brokaw, Cambrian Park, Cottle Rd. (San Jose)
  • Yogurtland (Morgan Hill)
Most of the closings occurred in San Jose. Notable closings include Yogurt Delite’s two locations in San Jose. Both locations survived for decades. Tuttimelon closed its flagship Irving St. location (they moved from the original location on Irving St. to a larger location – the larger location closed) and one of its earliest locations on Chestnut St. in San Francisco. Icebee was the earliest self-serve shops in SF and it recently closed. Yogen Fruz opened its first location in the Bay Area at the Embarcadero Center in San Francisco in early 2008, that location closed this year. Tutti Frutti closed several locations this year. The shops that closed were diverse – some were new self-serve shops and others had been around for decades. Some sold froyo only and others like Next Door Sweets and Good Bellies had many offerings plus froyo.


Bay Area Closings

  • Cultive (San Francisco)
  • Fro-Yo Shoppe (Mountain View)
  • Froyo Delight (San Jose)
  • Gaga Yogurt (San Jose)
  • Good Bellies (Oakland)
  • Icebee (San Francisco & San Jose)
  • Next Door Sweets (San Francisco)
  • Tuttimelon Chestnut St. & Irving St. (San Francisco)
  • Tutti Frutti Oak Grove & Palos Verdes Mall (Walnut Creek)
  • Tutti Frutti (Milpitas)
  • Tutti Frutti Silver Creek (San Jose)
  • Yogen Fruz (San Francisco)
  • Yogurt Delite (Blossom Valley & Meridian, San Jose)
  • Yogurt Village (San Jose)
  • Yogurt Walk (Dublin)
  • Yotopia (San Francisco)
More froyo shops are on the way in 2015.


Future Openings

  • Easy Breezy Castro (San Francisco)
  • Yogurtland (Mountain View)

Best Swirl of 2014



Fro-yo girl here. I'm about to swirl my last cup of froyo for the year, so it's a good time to look back at all my cups of froyo consumed in 2014.

You can see all my 2014 froyo cups consumed on my Pinterest board, Froyo Consumed by Me in 2014.

After looking at all my cups of froyo that I swirled this year, I picked out the nicest cup of froyo that I personally swirled.

And the winner is...a cup of Flan and Black Currant Berry Tart froyo with praline macadamia nuts, chocolate covered almonds, mochi, strawberries and graham cracker crumbs swirled on March 31 at Yogurtland San Francisco during the 2nd Annual Yogurtland Flavor Quest. I couldn't get enough of the flan flavor and I loved black currant berry tart as well.

It's more challenging to swirl two separate flavors side by side than one flavor. In my best swirled cup, I've achieved two swirls of equal height and diameter, with well defined swirls that point in the same direction. Not easy.

It was interesting to look back at all my cups of froyo to see which flavors and toppings I selected. I found out the following:

* 21% of my cups weren't swirled by me (I went to a full serve froyo shop)
* 18% of my cups contained pumpkin froyo, since it's generally available for 2-3 months, that's a lot of pumpkin froyo
* Over 130 cups of froyo consumed, or more than a cup of froyo every 3 days

Want to make your swirl look nicer? Read IFYA's Froyo Swirling Tips and get plenty of practice.

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

Spotted at Yogurtland Santa Barbara


Fro-yo girl here. Over the weekend I was in Santa Barbara to do a bit of Christmas shopping on State Street. Yogurtland was so busy that all the tables were taken and people were sitting outside on the sidewalk eating frozen yogurt. I was surprised to see a sign for Premium Hot Chocolate (the beverage) in the window and inside since I’ve never seen any Yogurtland sell a non-frozen yogurt food or beverage item. They had a Mexican Hot Chocolate flavor before but that was frozen yogurt.

I didn’t try the hot chocolate…I’d rather have frozen yogurt.

Yogurt Candy Review: Meiji Yogurt Soft Candy, Senjaku Happy Nikukyu Gummy Candy, Nobel Sours Gummy



Fro-yo girl here. The candymakers in Japan have been busy and yogurt flavored candies are still popular. I found several new yogurt candies on a recent trip to Mitsuwa Market.

Meiji Bulgaria Yogurt Soft Candy Strawberry


Meiji, the maker of Chelsea Yogurt Scotch and Yoglet, now makes Bulgaria Yogurt Soft Candy. Nijiya had one flavor, strawberry. A 33g reseable pouch of Yogurt Soft Candy is $1.89. This was the best tasting candy of the three that I tried. It looks and tastes like a longer, thinner cousin of Mentos. The outer shell of pink strawberry shellac surrounds a firm, chewy interior. It's very chewy and has a slight tartness. It also tastes a bit like bubblegum. The flavor isn't unpleasant but it's not that natural and Mentos tastes better. The candy contains yogurt powder.

Ingredients: Sugar, corn syrup, vegetable oil, gelatin, yogurt powder, sweetened condensed milk, dried strawberry, soy lecithin, sorbitol, acidulant, guar gum, artificial flavor, shellac, vegetable coloring.

4 out of 5 stars.

Senjaku Happy Nikukyu Gummy Candy: Apple Yogurt


These were very cute. The gummy candy is shaped like a kitten's paw. The bottom layer is white and the top layer is a clear pale peach that sparkles. It's firm and chewy like a gummy candy. The flavor seems sweet and bland at first but it becomes more flavorful and has a slight tartness and milky flavor. The apple flavor does not taste natural.  

Each pouch has one flavor of candy. Flavors include peach, cassis, pineapple and apple. A 40g pouch is $1.59.

Ingredients: Corn syrup, sugar, gelatin, milk calcium, powdered oblart (soy), concentrated apple juice, sorbitol, citric acid, artificial flavor, carnauba wax, anthocyanin, carotenoid color.

3 out of 5 stars.

Nobel Sours Gummy: Strawberry Yogurt


Nobel Sours comes in many flavors. I tried their plain gummy yogurt sours in the past and wasn't a fan. The strawberry yogurt flavor is even worse. I don't like the texture because it's too hard. It's more like a hard gelatin than a gummy. The pink rectangles are coated in a powder. The taste is slightly rotten, slightly like berries, and tangy. 

One 45g pouch is $1.79.

Ingredients: Sugar, corn syrup, agar agar, corn oil, strawberry juice, oblaat, acidulant, polishing agent, no animal based artificial flavor, emulsifier, anthocyandin, powdered milk.

2 out of 5 stars.

Icebee Closes San Francisco Location


Fro-yo girl here. Icebee opened its first location in February 2008 at 829 Mission St. San Francisco, CA 94103. It was self-serve, the first self-serve froyo shop in SF. The location was convenient for mall shoppers. It survived over 6 years which isn’t too shabby because the yogurt wasn’t that good. I always found their frozen yogurt to be icy so I probably went there two or three times total. Icebee closed in late November 2014.

Yogen Fruz San Francisco, which also opened in 2008, also closed this year. The Embarcadero location was the first Yogen Fruz location in the Bay Area. Tuttimelon closed its Chestnut St. Marina location this year and also the relocated Irving St. shop (Irving St. was their first location), both locations opened in 2008.

2008 was the beginning of the froyo boom in the Bay Area.

Meet the Frozen Yogurt Princess



Fro-yo girl here. There is a Frozen Yogurt Princess and it’s not me.

Who is the Frozen Yogurt Princess? 


The Frozen Yogurt Princess is an Adventure Time character. She looks like frozen yogurt (her hair resembles a swirl of vanilla or original tart froyo and her dress looks like an upside down cake cone). She was introduced in an episode called Breezy which aired in June 5, 2014. She dated Finn in that episode. Not much is known about her (hopefully they’ll show more of her on future episodes).

What is Adventure Time?

Adventure Time is an animated TV series that started in 2012 and is about a human boy named Finn and his magical best friend, Jake the Dog. It is shown on the Cartoon Network.

I'm collecting images of the Frozen Yogurt Princess on my Frozen Yogurt Princess Pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/froyogirl/frozen-yogurt-princess/

New "Test" Flavor at Pinkberry Glendale


Fro-yo girl here. The other day I strolled into Pinkberry's Americana location to take a break from holiday shopping and I was surprised to see a new froyo flavor that I hadn't heard about.

They just added "Popcorn" froyo. It's a test flavor! The flavor has a sweet base (not tangy). The texture was light and smooth. The popcorn flavor was more sweet and buttery than salty. It wasn't that dominant but you could definitely taste the popcorn. Though it's described as sweet and salty, I didn't notice the saltiness. It reminded me of their Butter Pecan flavor.

They also had caramel (pop)corn at the toppings bar.

I'm not sure how long they'll carry this flavor, so if you're interested, check it out soon. Call first to see if it's there.

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

Winter Yogurtland Promotion Continues with Two New Festive Flavors: Cinnamon Banana Bread & Eggnog

Both flavors are available while supplies last.

New Winter Yogurtland Flavor: Caramel Macadamia Froyo




Fro-yo girl here. Yogurtland’s winter promotion, Walking in a Winter Yogurtland, introduced a new flavor today: Caramel Macadamia. It's described as "A decadent, delicious holiday treat. Real macadamia nuts are dark roasted for a deep flavor, adding both a hint of salt and a back note of caramel."

From the description it sounds like macadamia nuts are the prominent flavor. I found that the caramel flavor was more noticeable and the back note tasted nutty. The texture was rich, smooth and creamy. It seemed pretty sweet to me but I'm not a caramel fan unless the caramel is muted by other flavors.


Recommended toppings: Speculoos cookies, almonds, white chocolate chips, toffee bits, Cap'N Crunch

Next up: Cinnamon banana bread & Eggnog on December 1.

Remember the Yogurtland gift card promotions. From Nov. 10 – Dec. 23, you’ll get a $5 gift card for every $20 in gift cards that you buy. From November 10 – November 30, customers who purchase $7 of froyo will receive a 5-ounce free card.

Also, look for the new Yogurtland froyo cup ornaments ($2.99 each), available while supplies last.

New Menchie's Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll Froyo & Holiday Sneak Peek



Fro-yo girl here. I finally tried Menchie’s flavor of the month: Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll, featuring Cinnabon Makara cinnamon blended with their signature cream cheese frosting. Menchie’s also offers two new toppings to complement their new flavor:

* Cinnabon morsels: Cookie dough bites mixed with yogurt chips and cinnamon

* Sweet cream cheese icing

While I do enjoy cinnamon, I don’t eat cinnamon rolls with icing because they’re far too sweet. I can’t imagine liking sweet cream cheese icing. Even the Cinnabon morsels sounded too sweet. I do miss the cinnamon streusel topping. As for the Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll froyo, it was, as I imagined, far too sweet. Also the cinnamon flavor was super strong, overpoweringly so. Try it if you love very sweet froyo and cinnamon.

Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll froyo is available this month or while supplies last.

While I was at Menchie’s I spotted the new Christmas design cups. They arrived early and they’re going to be joined to holiday Menchie’s spoons in December!

Menchie’s also has a gift card promotion: Buy a $25 gift card and get a $5 bonus card.

Free ad supported frozen yogurt cups work the same way.

Sign up today.

Ad-supported 16 oz. frozen yogurt cups and cup dividers are free for frozen yogurt shops that sign up for the program. The cost of the cups and dividers are paid for by the placement of ads on the cups. These ads will be family friendly and tasteful. And because these cups will be attractive, it will help elevate the image of your frozen yogurt store while saving your shop thousands of dollars a month.

The ad supported cups and dividers will be high quality food safe paper stock, the same cups and dividers that CarryOutSupplies.com sells to thousands of frozen yogurt stores.

About CarryOutSupplies.com's Yogurt Cups

CarryOutSupplies.com’s frozen yogurt cups begin with high quality USA food grade double poly paper. Both the exterior and interior of the cup are coated with poly film to ensure the cup's structure will not be compromised by frozen treats.

Walking in a Winter Yogurtland Returns with 8 Festive Flavors & Gift Card Promotions









Fro-yo girl here. Yogurtland’s winter promotion, Walking in a Winter Yogurtland, kicks off today with two flavors, the new Cookie Butter and fan favorite, Cranberry Raspberry Tart. Cookie Butter froyo is made with real Belgium speculoos cookies, cinnamon, nutmeg and baker’s sugar. It’s as good as it sounds. I liked how it wasn’t super sweet and the warm spices (mostly cinnamon) were noticeable but not overpowering. The texture was smooth, dense and creamy. Cranberry Raspberry Tart is made with Ocean Spray juice and it’s really quite tart with an intense flavor of cranberries. I think my favorite #WinterYogurtland flavors are going to be Cookie Butter and Cranberry Raspberry Tart.

I also spotted two new toppings: super crunchy Speculoos cookies and pumpkin bread. The pumpkin bread was dense and moist. Definitely get Speculoos cookies with your Cookie Butter froyo. I also recommend toffee bits. There are new cup designs too, but my Yogurtland didn't have them yet.

The holiday flavor schedule:

* November 10: Cookie butter & Cranberry raspberry tart

* November 17: White chocolate peppermint

* November 24: Caramel macadamia

* December 1: Cinnamon banana bread & Eggnog

* December 8: Sticky toffee pudding

* December 15: Fudge brownie

There are two gift card promotions. From Nov. 10 – Dec. 23, you’ll get a $5 gift card for every $20 in gift cards that you buy. There are two new loadable gift card designs: one with a strawberry and one with a teddy bear. The $5 gift card features a new design with wrapped gifts.

From November 10 – November 30, customers who purchase $7 of froyo will receive a 5-ounce free card.

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

Kroger Greek Yogurt Review


Fro-yo girl here. My local Ralph’s carries Kroger brand Greek yogurt in blended and fruit on the bottom varieties. I’m not a fan of fruit on the bottom, so I picked out a few of the blended flavors to try.

* Honey: This yogurt tastes so bad that I couldn’t finish the cup. It tastes rotten and artificial. Perhaps they added too much Stevia, which tastes artificial and bitter even though it’s considered a natural leaf extract. The texture is fine: creamy, thick, smooth, but the taste is just horrendous.

* Vanilla: Tastes better than the honey variety but still has an unpleasant artificial flavor.

Kroger Greek blended yogurt comes in 5.3 oz cups and is nonfat and gluten free. One serving is 90 calories. It carries the live and active cultures seal. One cup is $1.29 (regular price). I found Kroger Greek Blended Yogurt on sale for 77 cents a cup.

1.5 out of 5 stars.

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

2014 Fro-yo Shop Halloween Spirit Award Winner



Fro-yo girl here. I’ve been looking for fro-yo shop Halloween spirit and I haven’t seen Halloween decorations at that many froyo shops (sadly) but at least most of them offer pumpkin/pumpkin froyo. TCBY had cute Halloween/AngryBirds inspired flavor signs this year, including Hal’s Ghoulish Graham Cracker, Piggies’ Pumpkin, and Matilda’s Yummy Mummy Marshmallow. Menchie’s came out with Halloween color changing froyo cups and a new Pumpkin Harvest flavor. SweetXO had many kinds of Halloween toppings, including gummi candy corn, candy corn, pumpkin pretzels, pumpkin spice almonds, gummi body parts, candy bones and more. 

The winner of the 2014 Fro-yo Shop Halloween Spirit Award is...16 Handles. They have a Halloween photo contest called #TrickorTreat, their shops are decorated, had a Fall Festival featuring pumpkin carving, and they make Halloween froyo cakes. I’ve been admiring all the 16 Handles Halloween pictures.

Be sure to check out my Pinterest board, Halloween Froyo & Froyo Shop Decorations: http://www.pinterest.com/froyogirl/halloween-froyo-froyo-shop-decorations/

Happy Halloween!

A Month of Pumpkin Froyo



Fro-yo girl here. Did you know that today is National Pumpkin Day? 

I always think of October as Pumpkin Froyo Month. This year I decided that I would just eat pumpkin frozen yogurt in October, unless the frozen yogurt shop didn’t have pumpkin froyo. I love pumpkin froyo!

Fortunately, Yogurtland brought back fan favorite pumpkin pie froyo on Sept. 15, so I had my first cup of pumpkin pie froyo on Sept. 15. The Pasadena Yogurtland location on Lake St. has fresh whipped cream which is the best topping ever for pumpkin froyo. I always include graham cracker crumbs as well.

I’ve had 14 cups of pumpkin froyo so far this year and my favorite cup has featured:

  • Tons of fresh whipped cream – the more the better
  • Teddy Grahams
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Crushed Butterfingers

I hope that pumpkin pie froyo doesn’t run out at Yogurtland before Thanksgiving. Happy National Pumpkin Day! Eat pumpkin froyo today!

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

Fro-Yo Girl’s Froyo Guide to Greater Los Angeles




Fro-yo girl here. Los Angeles is where the frozen yogurt trend started and it’s still the home of some of the most interesting froyo shops in the country. Here’s my list of must see froyo shops in LA and Orange County. 


FUN IN HOLLYWOOD


* Frog Frozen Yogurt Bar (1550 N Cahuenga Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028): Hanging out late in Hollywood? Frog’s d├ęcor with the rainbow colored overhead lights and the work of local artists keeps the club experience alive. It’s open late and even delivers (the only froyo shop in LA to do so). Frog offers self-serve organic and vegan flavors plus free wi-fi. They’ve added color changing spoons that are worth collecting.

* Yogurt Stop (8803 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069): Sassy but classy, Yogurt Stop in WeHo (West Hollywood) is a celebrity favorite and it has the best names for froyo flavors. Flavors include I’m Comin’Out Cake Batter, Milk My Harvey Chocolate and Orange U a Top? Orange U a Bottom? Their motto is Pump It Yourself.


REAL GREEK FROZEN YOGURT 


* Go Greek Yogurt (425 N Bedford Dr., Beverly Hills, CA 90210): Most of the Greek yogurt you encounter is Greek style. Go Greek has the real thing. Their yogurt is made in Greece and flown over. They offer Greek refrigerated and triple strained Greek frozen yogurt with authentic imported Greek toppings like sour cherry, quince, rose and carrot. Toppings are healthier and you can serve yourself if you’d like their super thick frozen yogurt. Try the honey froyo.


ENDLESS VARIETY


* SweetXO (5285 Kanan Rd., Agoura Hills, CA 91301, additional locations in Huntington Beach, Thousand Oaks, Manhattan Beach and Arcadia): Admittedly the froyo isn’t the main attraction at SweetXO, but that’s only because they have so many offerings. In addition to 18 self-serve flavors of froyo and over 200 toppings, SweetXO has ice cream, cupcakes, cookies, make your own floats, candy, and a full blown sweets inspired selection of non-edible gifts. It’s a mini department store for your sweet tooth.

* Yogurt Passion (17037 Brookhurst St., Fountain Valley, CA 92708): Looking for the shop with the most frozen yogurt flavors to choose from? Yogurt Passion has 20 flavors of self-serve froyo a day. It’s in an Asian area, so expect to find some Asian flavors and toppings.


KOSHER AND PARVE


* Milky’s Frozen Yogurt (1429 S. Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90035): Not too many froyo shops can claim to be kosher and dairy-vegan-parve friendly like Milky’s. Milky’s offers 4 kosher parve vegan flavors a day plus 14 dairy flavors. It’s self-serve and even the toppings bar is kosher. Try the vegan soy froyo.


BEST EXTERIOR DESIGN


* Yogurtland CityWalk (1000 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA 91608): Do your LA plans include a trip to Universal Studios? If the answer is yes, you need to check out Yogurtland’s CityWalk location. The exterior of the shop features a giant 3-D fro-yo machine dispensing fro-yo into a fro-yo cup with a green Yogurtland spoon and a big splash of fro-yo. The fro-yo cup and logo are outlined in neon lights. Of course this location also has Yogurtland spoons as door handles.

* Treats Frozen Yogurt (1700 Ocean Park Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405): The cutest froyo shop exterior belongs to Treats. Love the giant cone out front and the colors: white, sky blue and silver. It’s not self-serve but that’s what makes it better. Employees carefully craft your treat putting toppings in the middle and on the top of a generous swirl of froyo. You can also get freshly shaved California snow and pretty froyo pies. 


MIX IN STYLE 


A fun alternative to the usual self-serve froyo shop, mix-in style yogurt allows you to create and customize your own froyo flavor (though you don’t do the mixing yourself). You pick the base and the add-ins and they are mixed together by machine or by hand.

* 21 Choices Frozen Yogurt (85 W Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91104, additional locations in Claremont, CA): Each location carries 6 soft serve froyo flavors a day. You can customize any of these with mix-ins and toppings. Your custom flavor is mixed before your eyes on a frozen marble slab. They’re known for unique flavors like Circus Animal and Nutella Cookie Dough. If you love toppings, this is the place for you. Don’t want to add mix-ins? Head to the express line for faster service.

* Humphrey Yogart (4574 Van Nuys Blvd., Sherman Oaks, CA 91403): Take a step back in time to the 1980s, to the time of the low carb crazy and San Fernando Valley’s valley girls. Humphrey Yogart got its start in 1984. At Humphrey Yogart, yogurt is yog-art. You’re invited to create your own frozen yogurt flavor by choosing a base (tart vanilla, sweet vanilla, chocolate, soy, organic tart or their low carb froyo flavors), choosing your blend ins and/or toppings (fruit, candy, cookies, cream cheese, nuts), and choosing your size. Your froyo & blend ins are mixed together in a blending machine. You can get your froyo in a cup or cone and top it with hot fudge or whipped cream. Interesting blend ins include pumpkin, espresso, malt powder, butterscotch, pistachios, peanut butter, and cinnamon. Try the tart vanilla base for a creamy, tangy treat.

If you can only go to one froyo shop during your visit, make it Go Greek Yogurt.


Enjoy your frozen yogurt and keep your froyo spoon busy!

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

Fro-Yo Girl Speaks 6th Blogiversary


Fro-yo girl here. Fro-Yo Girl Speaks turns 6 years old today: October 20, 2014. Happy blogiversary!

Earlier this year I moved to the Greater Los Angeles area, the capital of the second wave of frozen yogurt. Unfortunately, the move makes it nearly impossible for me to meet my original goal of visiting every frozen yogurt shop in the Bay Area. I thought I was going to reach the goal since fewer new froyo stores were opening. On the positive side, I’m now living in an area with hundreds of frozen yogurt shops that I’ve never visited before.

Since I’ve moved, it makes sense for this blog to expand its coverage to include Northern and Southern California froyo. I recently put together my list of notable froyo shops in SoCal. Be sure to check it out later this week.

I also stopped writing for Yelp last October. For those of you who enjoy my food and froyo shop reviews, be sure to check out my review blog on Tumblr: http://formeryelpers.tumblr.com/

Join the International Frozen Yogurt Association, the association that I founded. It’s free to join. The monthly enewsletter is also free and will deliver froyo industry news to your inbox. http://internationalfrozenyogurt.com/

Froyo fans, be sure to sign the petition to make froyo the official state food of California! Tell your friends to sign too: http://tinyurl.com/qdnuqkx

Thank you so much to my fans and readers and keep eating frozen yogurt!

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

Two New Flavors to Fall For Arrive at Yogurtland




Fro-yo girl here. Today marked the first day for two new Yogurtland flavors inspired by childhood treats:

Chocolate pudding pop frozen yogurt is described as “deliciously creamy, delightfully fudgy.” I found it sweet, creamy, and fudgy, while being lighter and milkier than I expected. The lightness was a nice change from the richer chocolate flavors.

Pink lemonade sorbet “uses real lemons for a perfect sweet and tart experience that is vitamin C fortified.” Pink lemonade sorbet tasted like a great lemonade - fresh, tangy and not too sweet.

Chocolate pudding pop and pink lemonade sorbet will be served through Nov. 9, while supplies last. I also spotted a new topping: Life Savers Gummies

Go Greek Yogurt 1st Anniversary



Fro-yo girl here. Guess what I had for lunch today? A cup of LA’s best frozen yogurt from Go Greek Yogurt.

They just started celebrating their 1st anniversary today and I snagged my 20% off discount card. On Saturday and Sunday enjoy free Greek coffee or tea with purchase.

If you love creamy, thick, rich frozen yogurt, you need to try Go Greek. Their imported triple strained Greek yogurt is all natural and has that natural yogurt tang. Yes the frozen yogurt is made with imported Greek yogurt.

Sadly, I just missed trying the rose froyo flavor, but I still love the honey flavor. Honey and yogurt just taste so right together.
