What's With This Fro-Yo Craze?

Have you tried any of the new frozen yogurt places around town? Do you have a favorite?

The biggest thing in the area these days (aside from complaining about traffic) is frozen yogurt. 

All throughout west Anne Arundel County we've seen new shops open up offering frozen yogurt treats with toppings. In most cases, it's self-serve and pay-by-the-pound. 

In Piney Orchard, there's the new Tutti Frutti store. 

At the Waugh Chapel Towne Centre, there's a Yolavie (French for "Yo, the Life.")

Near Arundel Mills, there's a Yogi Castle and Yogurt Mountain, and there's even a Pinkberry at BWI Airport. 

Ironically, there is no TCBY nearby, and the popular Red Mango hasn't set up shop in the area yet. Sweet Frog has a store in the county, but it's down in Edgewater.

I have not been to all of these stores, but at first glance, I have a hard time figuring out how they are different from one another. I am also curious as to why frozen yogurt seems to be the big thing once again. 

Patch blogger Tammy Estes recently wrote a review of Tutti Frutti, and described it as "not fabulous but not lousy."

Have you tried any of the new frozen yogurt shops in the area? What do you think of them? Leave your comments below.

I love Menchies.. I fill it to the top with different flavors,, no toppings..Usually cost $6 and then I go back for a 2nd one..this is summer as too cold in winter. Yolavie is good but Menchies still my favorite..

We are big Yolavie fans in our house. Its a good treat for us, and the staff has always been helpful and friendly. But, we also do love Menchies as well!

It seems like no one has tried PINKBERRY! It is the BEST frozen yogurt I've ever had. There are several locations the National Harbor, DuPont Circle, Georgetown, etc. Most frozen yogurts are too sweet but Pinkberry is so refreshing! All you Menchies, Yolavie, Yogi Castle, Tutti Fruiti lovers I challenge you go try the BEST! GO TRY PINKBERRY!
