Even though it’s not quite spring yet, it was so nice out today that I got a craving for frozen yogurt. Since there are no TCBY’s in the city, I have been trudging through life without a local fro-yo joint – until now that is. When I was on the bus yesterday I remembered this spot on Astoria Boulevard that I saw once before – Twirlz Yogurt Bar.
I love the bright colors in this place, and the fact that they have NORMAL frozen yogurt. They also have the tart variety of yogurt, for those odd people who prefer it, but I like my yogurt sweet and creamy.
Plus, right on the wall is a giant poster letting you know that all of the yogurt is gluten free, except for the cookies and cream and english toffee flavors.
After a free sample, I decided on half strawberry/half chocolate yogurt with fresh strawberries. Little did I know that I would get a veritable Leaning Tower of Pisa of yogurt.
It might have been intimidatingly large, but boy was it tasty. I will be back many a time this spring and summer to try all of their rotating flavors.
