Frozen fare at Yogo Bliss is a healthy, tasty treat
The tart strawberry yogurt that I sampled was indeed quite light, refreshing and tasty, providing a guilt-free experience — though not entirely so, as I couldn’t resist adding the Samosa Girl Scout cookies pieces and Reese’s Pieces toppings. The original tart was a little too sour, though nicely complemented by fresh mango and pineapple.
The pre-teen set that I took with me on the first visit would have nothing of the healthy options here, so most opted for the gelato.
There are a range of flavors and all were good, though some were better than others. My hands-down favorite was the crÃ¨me de menthe, though the chocolate birthday cake was a close second, perfect for the chocoholic interested in splurging on a creamy concoction full of fudge. Mango, loaded with full-bodied fruity flavor, was a refreshing option. Smoothies are also featured here, and both of those we tried — the strawberry banana and the tropical, with mango, pineapple and strawberry — contained an abundance of delicious fresh fruit.
The only miss was the strawberry bubble tea, which has an artificial taste, unlike the rest of the treats offered here. It reminded me of that powdered strawberry Nesquik drink mix.
The base price of the tart yogurt ranges from $2.74 to $4.25, and it’s roughly the same for the gelato. The price adds up as you elect for more toppings, which are 50 cents each. Portions are modest and manageable, not excessive.Â
