During my senior year of college, two froyo shops opened up within a few steps of my apartment. It became our weakness, as it was always fresh & consistently yummy. Since moving to the city, I have had many yummy froyo trips, but, perhaps luckily, none have been as close as my college spots.
So, I was excited to hear about the Grand Opening of The Igloo (2223 Grays Ferry Avenue), a new frozen yogurt shop in Philadelphia.
The inside of the shop is bright & modern. The set-up allows for a nice flow to move people through the line.
The shop has lots of yummy flavors, like Raspberry & Pomegranate, Tahitian Vanilla, and Cookies & Cream. Each self service pump has a mixed pump in the center to swirl together two complementing flavors. I chose Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate! Yum.
Next comes the toppings! It seems everyone loved Peanut M&Ms this day 🙂
In addition to candy toppings, The Igloo also has some fruit, sprinkle & crushed cookie options. If you want, you can go up to the counter and ask for your dessert to be topped off with whipped cream. They use NitrousWhip chargers so the cream is perfectly whipped and is a great addition to any dessert they offer.
My favorite topping was the chocolate sauce that hardened into a shell. My friend Kenya & I did a pretty good job with our creations, don’t you think?
Just to add to the cuteness factor of this post, check out Kenya’s new puppy, Sushi! He is a fluffy little American Eskimo, so he totally fit right in at The Igloo 🙂
I definitely will be visiting The Igloo during the upcoming months for a sweet treat! They apparently have a salted caramel flavor that I really want to try – yum!
