I went there yesterday. Having tried Starfruit (frozen kefir, though it's now tainted by association with a certain event in my life) and Red Mango (Korean froyo, really good) recently, I decided to suck it up and try the crackberry instead of ya know, eating real food for dinner. I guess that makes me a sorority girl.

I approve of the recent trend of froyo that really tastes sour like yogurt instead of like glorified softserve. They have a pretty impressive assortment of toppings including girl scout cookies, although I felt so rushed by the server that I wasn't even sure what I wanted. Opted for pineapple, strawberry (my favorite fruit) and chocolate chips. That's where I went wrong. Fruit+froyo=great, chocolate chips freeze and become waxy and inedible. So I guess this is a post dedicated to the eradication of chocolate chips as a froyo topping, or maybe they should be re-engineered as chocolate shavings or something so they are still edible when frozen. I guess that's why the chocolate in mint chip is always kind of flat pieces, it has a better texture that way.

And if you ever find yourself at Red Mango, get the green tea froyo with mochi topping, for realz.
