So I am totally one of those people who goes to one of those DIY frozen yogurt shops and, instead of taking advantage of the froyo, pile on way more toppings than I really should. On a good day, my topping to froyo ratio is probably 50/50, but if I'm being completely honest with you guys, it's really more like 75/25. My toppings of choice? Yogurt chips, mini mochi squares ( like these ones by the crazy talented Cynthia ) and Circus Animal cookies .
As for where I get my froyo, my cousin got me hooked to the Yogurtland froyo chains a few years ago; down in Los Angeles, Yogurtlands are a dime-a-dozen and are seemingly on every street corner. But up here in Oregon, the closest Yogurtland is in a fancy mall in the ritzy suburbs, about a half-hour drive from my city-dwelling, bike-commuting self. But no worries! Erlend and I would make the occasional trek out there, ending our half-hearted suburban shopping trips with scoops of tart, tangy yogurt heaped with all sorts of crazy toppings.
