Menchie's Frozen Yogurt is a Treat!

Oh boy, what an ice cream shop, really a frozen yogurt place, we found the other day.

We never have ice cream in our freezer. Ice cream is addictive, and even the low-calorie, low-fat versions do not do a body good if you eat the entire contents of a carton that ice cream.

My husband's birthday was February 26th, and I thought it would be nice to treat him to an ice cream sundae. Since I could have a sundae too, it was an even better idea! So, I took him to a new shop close to our home called Menchie's. It was freezing cold outside, but we were craving ice cream so badly that we were willing to brave the ice cream despite the frigid temperature.

I found out that Menchie's is not about ice cream. It is a frozen yogurt chain. We loved this place because you get to make your own frozen yogurt sundaes. The variety of flavors and toppings offered boggled our minds. Menchie's had it all!

The fact that Menchie's has sugar-free, low-fat, low-calorie, fresh fruit toppings, and a wealth of yogurt flavors was a plus. I built myself a low-fat strawberry yogurt sundae topped with fresh strawberries, nuts and sugar-free, fat-free chocolate syrup! My husband did not go the low-calorie route due to the fact that the birthday person does not have to watch his weight on that special day. I think that is a rule.

It thought it was pretty neat that the CEO of Menchie's appeared on an Undercover Boss episode.

Ice cream is definitely addictive. So is frozen yogurt! Every now and then I will buy frozen yogurt when I'm craving ice cream. Unfortunately, I love and consume the yogurt at the same rapid pace as I would ice cream!!

I love ice cream, it is very addictive. Frozen yogurt in a much healthier chose. I like to make my own smoothies. I do it all of the time in the summer

I've never heard of that chain before. I avoid chains, though, and am careful about my ice cream and frozen yogurt choices. Too much of it contains chemicals (including those used in nail polish remover) as well as it potentially not being vegetarian.

That sounds like a few of the frozen yogurt places around here. We have one called FroYo and another called SweetFrog and another called Hoopla. I have no clue how the last two got their names though haha. All the places are delicious but quite expensive. I take my kids there once in a while when I have a coupon for a special treat. They love it there.
