Full Disclosure: I paid for this meal with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post. The opinions are completely my own.
Did you really think that I could go on vacation to Philadelphia for four days and only have Frozen Yogurt once?! I passed different frozen yogurt places numerous times throughout the weekend, there was no way that I wasn’t going to go again.
This time, we ended up going to Yogurt City. (they don’t have a website yet as far as I can tell so this is their Yelp page.) We happened upon this place because it was the first place we spotted on our way back to the hotel after dinner.
When we walked in, it seemed either kind of sketchy or like it opened before it was quite ready for guests. I’m going to hope for the latter option. Although it didn’t look like a fancy place, it actually turned out to be quite good. They had a bunch of different options for frozen yogurt as well as many different toppings. They were lacking in the fruit category, which of course is what I generally gravitate to, but they made up for it with random extra things. Like Popping Boba.
(The mango that you see in this photo is about the extent of the fruit that they had.)
The first time I had popping boba was at Red Mango in Madison (review to come). They are kind of weird and kind of cool. I originally thought that they were the same boba that you find in boba tea, which they kind of are…only they are filled with liquid and basically explode when you chew them. This particular yogurt shop actually had two different flavors, as well as some “jelly” (read: finely chopped pieces of jello) as a topping as well.
For my FroYo treat, I had some plain tart yogurt as well as some pomegranate yogurt with mango, popping boba and some jelly. The yogurt was delicious and the boba were a fun and unexpected addition.
Taste: A, delicious – and I liked the pomegranate flavor a lot, I don’t know that I’ve had it before.
Cost: A, I don’t exactly remember how much it was, but it was a build your own variety, so it never is very expensive for the amount that I get.
Would I go there again? It did have some unique things and wasn’t crowded at all, but I’m not sure that I would go back to somewhere that I’ve been over trying somewhere new.
