My frozen yogurt world has officially been rocked | Tricia S.

Well damn.  My frozen yogurt world has officially been rocked.  I thought Yogilicious was king but now I'm a bit torn.  I stopped into I Heart Yogurt on my way home from work today and am already planning my return!

It had a few negatives, which I'll get out of the way here: the biggest one was the service, or lack thereof.  There was one young girl working there who was texting on her phone the ENTIRE time I was there.  She yelled hello in a sing-songy voice whenever someone walked in, but never looked up from her phone.  I went to go ask her for sample cups (I fully intended on trying ALL the samples) and she didn't look up when she gave them to me.  Or when I paid.   It had a totally different feel...not ridiculously crowded like Yogilicious was the last time I went in (good lord) but more like a place rich moms go after a workout or with their daughters.  Also, of course, I can't walk to it like I can to Yogilicious.  And they didn't have Taro.

On to the good...it's self service, just like Yogilicious.  40! (not 35 like I originally thought) cents an ounce.   The flavors were all great except a orange/tangerine sorbet that was pretty weird--the color (and taste) of orange Triaminic.  Let's see how many I can remember:

1. Belgian dark chocolate - tasted like an extra chocolatey frostee
2. Swiss milk chocolate - tasted like an extra creamy frostee
3. California strawberry - tasted like strawberry milk
4/5. French & Italian espresso - both good, I liked Italian better, but not sure why they needed two espressos
6. Cookies n' Cream - meh, didn't really taste like either
7. Green tea - really tart and really good! 
8. Tahitian vanilla - really good vanilla flavor
9. Pomegranate - another tart one, really tasty
10. Peanut butter - yum
11. Italian(?) original - supertart plain, double yum! (haven't decided which place does it best)

I mixed the plain, green tea, and pomegranate for a medley of delicious tartness, and added fruity pebbles, yogurt chips, almonds, bananas, strawberries, kiwi, blueberries, blackberries, pineapples, and grapefruit for $5.75.  

It was way more than I usually get but I kinda felt bad for spending like 10 minutes trying all the flavors.  I would love to mix the belgian dark chocolate and peanut butter next time and top it with bananas...mmm.  If I can ever force myself to get something other than a tart flavor, that is.

Also, all their containers/packaging (they have lids and bags if you want to take your fro-yo to go) are biodegradable.

So, I guess now my favorite froyo place just depends on what part of town I'm in.  I'm still partial to Yogilicious because I feel like it's a more homey/neighborhood place, but this is some serious competition.  You have to try it!
