Happy Ice Cream Friday! I found a fun slideshow on the Travel Channel website about ice cream around the world. Check it out - there's some really unique stuff on there.
Lately, frozen yogurt shops seem to have taken over as THE go to cold treat. And I totally understand why - the froyo of today tastes just like ice cream, comes in various flavors, and the multitude of toppings. Ohh, the toppings!
Backing up for a second, one of the newest froyo shops around is Red Cherry Frozen Yogurt in Walpole. Many frozen yogurt joints seem to follow one of two basic formats: some dish out the yogurt & toppings for you and others are totally self-serve. Happily, Red Cherry is self service which I prefer because then I can completely control my cup! Also, you pay for the weight of your cup, not for the cup size or number of toppings.
Red Cherry has a bunch of different flavors, varying from the traditional to gluten-free sorbets, tart yogurts, and fun ones (like cinnamon bun and my beloved cookies n cream)! Pump any combination into your cup and then head for the toppings bar. Whatever you fancy, they are sure to have: nuts, candy, fruit, cookies, everything. Choose wisely. ;)
Clearly I'm a toppings maniac but I promise that there is actual froyo under there! In my cup: cookies n cream and chocolate-peanut butter yogurts topped with Oreo, Reese's, cookie dough chunks, waffle cone pieces, hot fudge, and whipped cream. Wicked healthy!
There small shop does have a few tables both inside and out. Or take a walk across the road to the Walpole Common and enjoy your froyo in the grass!
Red Cherry Frozen Yogurt is located at 1049 Main Street, Walpole MA.
