There’s a danger in loving some
bodything toooo much . . .
Yes ladies and gentlemen, there is danger afoot . . . a Big Foot! This recently opened sweet treatery is a mere 3 blocks away from my workplace (The Ol’ 9-to-5) and is catering to my latest addiction—oh so glorious FroYo!! This place seriously rules! Don’t get me wrong, I still got nothin’ but love for Menchie’s, but with this Diner ‘O’ Dreams just a hop skip and a jump away (and not up the hill like Menchie’s is) it’s a major competitor for my affection. Plus, they have some outta-this-world flavors!
Some are kinda scary . . .
But most are really sweet!
Seriously though, this place is a Fro-tastic Wonderland for me! They have a great variety of classic + adventurous toppings to meet my fancy and they offer quality Gluten Free, Low Carb, Vegan, and No Sugar Added flavors that don’t taste “less than.” I’ll be honest, I’ve passed over a cup of ‘Yo’ at other places before because of tasteless or watered down NSA flavors. However, the ones at Yeti are full of flavor and don’t make me feel like I’m cheating myself. Obviously I had to pair my favorite fruit with this delectable flavor:
Oh yeah, and I HAVE to tell you, that of all the coffee-flavored FroYo I’ve sampled around town, theirs is the BEST!!! I haven’t found a perfect mix for it yet, and lately I’ve been all about the mix, but believe me—it’s SUPER rich and delicious! It’s been fun stopping in from time to time to indulge in the sweet Yeti goodness and not feel like I have to rush around to grab-and-go. I’ve been known to pair a cup of this tasty freeze with some Red Beans & Rice w/ Andouille Sausage Gumbo at Metropolitan Market next door. It’s a match made in heaven if you ask me. 😉
Speaking of perfect pairing, things are about to get even worse (but mostly better) for my wallet! I not only got one of these sweet babies:
But I also downloaded the Pirq app that Yeti uses, so I can get FroYo discounts (usually 30% or 50% off) during certain days/times. What a win!
Menchie’s also uses Pirq, so if the deal is better at one location, I’ll go there. But mostly, I’m okay with passing up the bigger money discount for the time convenience of just hitting up the lower discount in the Yeti zone. My main challenge will now be teaching myself that not every day is FroYo day . . . psh. Or maybe it is! 😉
