No, not that Frogurt, this one:
It would appear that Silver Spring is set to become the final place on earth to hop on the frozen yogurt bandwagon. According to the website of FroZenYo, which already operates three stores in the District, a Silver Spring location is on the way. No mention of where in Silver Spring it will be opening, but I’ll keep you posted. I am going on the assumption that they mean downtown, but “Silver Spring” can refer to quite a number of places. FroZenYo claims to have a “self-serve” format. Can someone who’s been there before describe exactly what this means? Can I put my mouth directly under the nozzle then spoon candy in?
I can’t keep track of all the different frogurt places that have sprung up in the area in the last year or so. All their names seem to be variations of each other: TangySweet, SweetGreen, Yogiberry, Iceberry, etc, etc. I generically refer to them as “Fake Pinkberry” to keep it simple. I’ve only tried this new wave of frozen yogurt once or twice and wasn’t particularly enamored, but clearly a lot of people like it. I still think of frozen yogurt as that crap that was briefly popular in the late 80’s, though I’m told this new type is somehow different. It’s supposed to be “healthy”, but I imagine covering it and candy and cookies might negate any health benefits:
