Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt

We have had this in our blogger queue for awhile now but, honestly, it feels like a lot of you know about this little spot over in the Renaissance Center by Southpoint Mall already. So feel free to weigh in with your opinions, too! We love your thoughts. (By the way, this chain also has a location in Raleigh off of Plantation Center Drive for our Raleigh-side parents!)

This is the latest frozen yogurt place to go in in our area (and good news: another FroYo spot is going in on the other side of Southpoint, over by the Target!). You can see all the FroYo and sweet treat shops we've reviewed here (including favorites such as YoPop, Local Yogurt, Tutti Frutti plus more). And this place works just like the others: you get a cup, pick your yogurts and dispense them yourself, head to the toppings bar and load up, then pay by weight. So the creation is all yours and there is no limit as to what you can shove in that cup. Well, maybe there is some limit but the cups are huge so it's not like you would need all that yogurt anyhow. Of course, kids tend to adore the process even more than what they end up with.

But by the way here's a marketing tip: but if you want toddlers to become obsessed with your business, definitely market yourself with some sort of cute animal, say a frog. That really was half the allure of this stop for C - finding all the frogs. Even the little frog sticker we get when we go in has left an indelible mark.

But there is other stuff here, too. And since we're now experts on the Frozen Yogurt Shop, let us enlighten you:

- The diversity and quality of toppings is great! The toppings bar was big, very clean, and well-labeled. The fruit looked fresh and if you wanted you could ask for fresh bananas to peel and slice right on top. Of course, we opted for the things like mini-M&Ms, brownie bites, and Reese's Peanut Butter cups.

- The selection of the yogurt was delightful. I do miss the Cold Stone that was here. I love my fattening, salty ice cream. But I was pleased to learn that Sweet Frog had cake batter frozen yogurt as well as peanut butter and chocolate (hooray for unhealthy options!). And, of course, they also carry the standard FroYo shop stuff like strawberry, original tart, peach, and the like.

- The price was good at only 39 cents an ounce.

No changing table but there is one high chair. It is also nice that there are a bunch of big, green chairs outside to enjoy, even if it is a strip mall (if you want a big chair, ice cream, and a view, you gotta get to Maple View).

And, of course, this is close to a lot of other favorites in the Southpoint Mall area such as Chick-fil-A and Mom Valet service, Moe's, Green Kids, Peek-a-Do, the play area in the mall, and playgrounds such as Piney Woods, Herndon Park, and another park we'll post about later!
