NYC with Amber


Culture | 331 5th Ave, Brooklyn | Park Slope

I can’t tell if it’s a New York thing or a since-2009ish trend that spans nation-wide, but there is a LOT of frozen yogurt options in this city, especially in my neighborhood. I feel like it was really popular in the 90’s (TCBY, anyone?), and then you couldn’t get any for a long time, and now there are at least seven (!) places within walking distance of my apartment that I can go to to get my fro yo on.

Culture, though, is in a league of it’s own. The owners make it themselves on site, and it’s different than the watery frozen stuff you are used to in that it’s actual yogurt that’s been frozen.

They offer lots of fresh, unique toppings and have a list of suggested fun combinations; my fave so far is the key lime which is filling gobbed on top and then dusted with graham cracker crumbles. They even put some pie filling on the bottom (thoughtful!) so I didn’t run out of the good stuff midway through. See?

Prices are comparable to the rest of the neighborhood’s offerings but the product is way better, making it a bargain in my opinion. Go get some!

    Actually that’s true…There are A LOT of yogurt places that have popped up here in D.C., too! I can’t keep up w/ the names of all of them. But there is one in a major mall here that people line up for and it’s probiotic or whatever and it tastes soooooooo ridiculously good. EXPENSIVE! I get samples every single time I’m in that mall.
