Any food that lets me be a kid all over again is tops in my book. That’s what I love about the new trend of do-it-yourself frozen yogurt. I am in kid heaven at Menchie’s, located at 6900 Lenox Village Drive. A buffet of toppings, and I do mean a buffet. My eyes get way bigger than my stomach everytime. Not to mention the selections of flavored frozen yogurt that you can mix and match. It’s a different experience each time I go.
So, how’s it taste?
However I want it to! The frozen yogurt is so yummy that it’s such a challenge for this indecisive girl to choose. So I don’t choose, and that’s just how I like it! The combination above is swirled cookies ‘n cream (think Oreo) and Irish mint, with a splash of milk chocolate and butter pecan. Sounds a bit crazy, but it knocked my socks off! The frozen yogurt tastes exactly like you expect it to and it’s not overly sweet. The fun part comes with the toppings. It’s literally topping mecca in that store. I could easily come out of there with a 10-pound cup of froyo. I’m talking cheesecake bites, sprinkles, coconut, crushed candy bars, hot fudge syrup, fruit, whip cream, etc. It’s heaven. I topped mine with crushed Oreos, coconut, chocolate chip cookie dough, and Heath bar. I also tried a bite of the mochi (the white bite at the top of my cup). It tastes like a marshmallow to me, but it’s actually made of rice that’s pounded into a paste and molded into shape. Mmm mmm good!
