I Need Your Help! - Frozen Yogurt Spots

Hi 'hounders!

I'm in dire need of your help...(as I screamed earlier). I'm going to write an article about frozen yogurt - the tangy/sour stuff in the vein of Pinkberry (not for my blog though).

If you do have any idea where I can find this beyond Pinkberry, Flurt, or Red Mango, please tell me!

Thanks in advance!

  1. My absolute favorite is Berrywild on 3rd Ave between 29/30. I think it smokes all the rest.

    1. There's also Crazy Bananas, Ono, Yolato and 40 Carrots. This girl tried just about every fro-yo place in New York and wrote lengthy reviews on all of them, which might be good for your reference:

        Maybe it's only me but I once got a taster of Crazy Bananas and it tasted like granola. I really don't expect my fro yo to taste like granola unless I've specifically asked for toppings, so I left quickly.

        My fave is Flurt - I get about 1 or two mediums a week. Although I need to try Red Mango.

      2. Try the corner of 14th st and 6th ave. There's a Village Yogurt, a Pinkberry, and nearby a I Can't Believe It's Yogurt.

          There's a Yogurtberry in Jackson Heights.

            I just noticed there is also a Red Mango near the northeast corner of that same intersection. That's got to be one of the greatest densities of frozen yogurt shops in the known world.
            (I am coming to the conclusion that there must be something wrong with me since I've never tasted frozen yogurt from any of these chains.)

          2. The plain flavor in Bloomingdale's.

            1. Don't forget Smoochies on 23rd and 6th Avenue, I like it, very low calorie.

                Smoochies tastes artificial to me. Also, it bills itself as a lactose-free "frozen dessert," like Tasti d Lite: http://www.smoochies.biz/products.htm
