i heart yogurtland (& forty carrots too)

October 12, 2009

my last post brought on an intense craving for tart frozen yogurt.

a trip to bloomies for some forty carrots was in order.

forty carrots

i got a small plain froyo with strawberries, granola and coconut.

i love how they build up the froyo and toppings parfait style.

doesn’t it look so pretty? pretty enough to pay $7 dollars for?

ouch.

tom got a chocolate with reese’s peanut butter cups

the only downside to forty carrots is that it’s pricey. but what’s a girl to do when the craving hits? this isn’t LA and there aren’t yogurtlands around every corner 😦

yup, i mentioned yogurtland again. i’m telling you…i’m obsessed!

(if the decision’s just too hard, you can also get mini sample cups…ask for like five and refill a couple times each :P)

then move on to the toppings bar

(bottom right are two of my faves: mochi pieces and choco covered sunflower seeds)

admire your work of art and pay a ridiculously affordable 30 cents an ounce!

    This post is a yogurt-lovers dream 🙂 I have never heard of 40 Carrots but what a cute name! I love all the self-serve yogurt places…you get exactly the amount you want of everything, and I like the control 😉

    WOW!!!!!! I want your fro-yo cup at the top. I never heard of that place but dayuum that’s pricey. Ugh but it looks so good. A squirt of condensed milk? That sounds awesome! I’ve never seen that. Don’t you love how all the fro-yo places have such funky decor?

    Ohh and yes I think the “old” crush is a “new” crush! Gah!! I just want to hang out with him!! – this is how I KNOW I like him again.
