Menchie's Frozen Yogurt







There's something about frozen yogurt that just brings me to my happy place.  So the concept of serving yourself and sampling everything in sight is obviously a win-win to me.  Whenever I'm craving a "healthier" dessert, I turn to Menchie's Frozen Yogurt (similar to Yogurtland and Tutti Frutti, but closer to our apartment).  We love this place for all the delicious flavors and toppings (red velvet and cake batter top my list).  While Gabe would prefer a slice of pie over frozen yogurt, he always gets a good laugh over how much I can pack into one cup.

Frozen yogurt bars are my LIFE. I adore them... It does get super awkward when my yogurt costs a ridiculous amount due to all the raspberries, hot fudge, and Oreo crumbs that I pile on.

It's not just how much you can pack into your cup it's when you end up finishing yours, then finishing mine that always cracks me up!

I LOVE fro-yo! We have a Yogurtland and a Mojo near us and I always do half "healthy" with fruit and half "decadent" with mass amounts of brownies, etc.
Yum.

You know, I have never been anywhere like this but I see them on blogs all the time. A Pinkberry came to Newbury Street so once its warmer I'll make my way!

I am so there with you. We've got Pinkberry and Yogurtland a few blocks away and I will Pinkberry it every night of the week if possible.

Hence the junk in the trunk. But it's happy junk!

Agreed! I adore frozen yogurt places. I get giddy and it's SO good. I have not tried cake butter yet, and it sounds like a must. I am now officially hungry! xx veronika

It's so funny. We just got a coupon to a self-serve yogurt place just down the street from us... and I've been craving it ever since!! Today's minimum day at school, and I think it'd be a perfect opportunity to use that coupon :).

I know Italian gelato is great but I definitely do miss my frozen yoghurt ice-creams. I love the fruity ones!

Thanks for sharing your adventure in food!

I don't love Menchie's yogurt but something about that place still sucks us in! The fun colors and all the toppings...it's just too hard to resist!
