I recently discovered the coolest place, Cherry Berry Yogurt Bar. It’s a self serve yogurt bar with tons of frozen yogurt flavors to choose from and even more toppings. You pay by weight – so your fro yo sundae can be as indulgent or reasonable as you like.
The first thing I noticed walking into Cherry Berry, was the bright and colorful atmosphere. Bright reds and greens cover the walls and tables and chairs and you have the choice of sitting at basic tables, loungy couches or bars lining the outer walls. The kids immediately dove for the red bulbous plastic chairs that look like mini bean bags and the hubby and I sat on a comfortable couch. The cheerfulness of the place made it feel like spring even when there was snow on the ground outside.
Almost all of their flavors of frozen yogurt are 100 calories for a half cup serving. Knowing this makes it pretty easy to make an informed decision about portion control. I’ve been opting for the fruitier flavor yogurts and topping them with fresh fruits and a couple fun indulgences like graham cracker crumbs or hot fudge. My son and husband have been going nuts with candies and delicious indulgences. My three year old daughter tries to make the most colorful, pretty sundaes she can dream up with yogurt flavors like the orange creamsicle and strawberry. We haven’t made a combination we didn’t like yet and the flavors of frozen yogurt are all very good and true to their names.
I’ve found the cost to be pretty reasonable – we tend to get out spending around $15 for four people which isn’t super cheap or super expensive and the cost is well worth the experience. The last time we were there, we walked in on a birthday party in progress. It seemed like a really cute place to have a birthday party and the non-party customers didn’t seem to diminish their fun (nor did the party goers presence keep us from having fun). I am totally considering having my daughter’s fourth birthday party there!
Anybody else been to Cherry Berry or a place like this? I’m new to the yogurt bar game, but our family has quickly become fast fans of the concept.
