MENCHIE'S, ANYONE?


My daughter treated me to the most awesome frozen yogurt shop today here in Orlando called Menchie's. It's incredible and addictive. You pay by the weight of your concoction, not the toppings. And there are dozens of toppings from which to choose as well as sauces. There are also several machines that dispense the delicious cold treat, with yogurts that change daily. I had New York Cheesecake and Cake Batter for my base, then topped it with caramel sauce, hot fudge sauce, Reese's peanut butter sauce, baked apples, mini Reese's cups, walnuts, pecans, maraschino cherries, cookie dough bits, kiwi, graham cracker crumbs, chocolate sprinkles and pineapple. Yum! It ended up being huge, and cost about $6.00.

If I had any money right now, I'd buy a franchise. Seriously! You can check it out at menchies.com -- take a look!

Anyway, has anyone else tried them out? They're a fairly new company, and locations currently include California, Hawaii and Texas. The one in Orlando opened fairly recently, and has been positively packed with patrons of all ages ever since. It's the first one in Florida. It's on Sand Lake, just off of International Drive. We highly recommend it!

Felix, it's right outside of Universal Studios in Dr. Phillips. Take I-4W to the International Drive/Sand Lake exit, and take a right. It's in the first shopping center on the right on Sand Lake.

Sounds delicious! Here's their website -- http://www.menchies.com/index.php

Thankfully they say one will be opening soon in New York!

Soon to be one very close to my schools.

I think it would be less than supportive for me to refuse to go by and check them out when they open. I'll tough it up, do my part to check it out, and report back. That's the least I can do for a fellow Sploofer.

Osuz, this is terrible of you. Here I am 3 weeks into Jenny Craig, and you're talking sinful yummy desserts. I don't think Valerie Bertinelli will let me go.

Maybe Valerie would let you eat the fresh fruit topping?
