Johnna’s Pick of the Week: Froyo

[ 0 ] March 18, 2010 |

Losing weight is a pain in the butt. Well, for a foodie. As a person that believes in consuming about 5-6 full meals a day, cutting down the intake was not an easy task. We changed our diet from reds to greens and from vodka to select red wines. Good idea except this leaves no room for trouble and we need some trouble in our diet to keep us satisfied. Good thing we stumbled across Froyo when we did because the diet was breaking us down. Froyo sells soft-serve frozen yogurt and it is delicious (*Typically, frozen yogurt is not our thing…). We have found some good trouble to get into:-)
Froyo is the sweet tooth haven for those that are trying to avoid the full calorie count of ice cream. It reminds us of Tasti D-Lite in New York but better because you can actually fix the servings yourself out of self-serving dispensers (*This is the Downtown location, do not know how it works @ the Wisconsin Avenue location). The process: You get a cup (*This thing has to be about 16 oz., it’s huge!), you can mix and match whatever flavors you like, you add your toppings (*Various fruits and cereal. Yum.) and then you pay (*$.39 an oz.). Ok, so we tried to squeeze everything in that one cup because we are determined to discipline our greedy palate.
Our favorites for the week include the cheesecake, peanut butter and chocolate mix and the birthday cake is worth a lick. When toppings are offered, we are true to our roots: Fruity Pebbles. Loved this cereal since we were kids and now we are just kids with grown up faces. Next time, we think we’ll try the strawberry and tiramisu with some fresh raspberries and Cap ‘n Crunch…not necessarily in that order but our stomachs request them this week…
