They call it Yogurt Island. There's like a dozen flavors of yogurt and like a million toppings. You can put as much or as LITTLE of as MANY goodies as you like on as many flavors of yogurt as you like and when you get to the front to weigh it--- it's like 3 dollars! You don't have to share with your kids to keep them from getting a ton, you can just make them a mini serving in the gargantuan cup they give you. It's all part of the fun. You can go tart, or normal, fruity or candy-y, or brownie-y, or ... what the heck, waffle-y. I don't know what you do with a real waffle but they have 'em. They have everything you could think of. And believe me. When it comes to my ice cream, I think of everything.
Here's a normal night at home BEFORE yogurt-island:
Ross: "Are you still making your ice cream? What are you putting in it tonight?"
Lillie: "Still working on it, but so far, milk, honey bunches of oats, hot fudge, a little smear of peanut butter, banana, ..... but it needs something else..."
and then I hear that cell phone commercial where the italian guy is like "these are the Caloreos-- my family--- " (or something like that)
and upon hearing "Caloreos" I think AHA!
"and some of those left over oreos from your birthday cake! Perfect."
So when we ventured to the new "u-create" yogurt joint the other night without me knowing what was in store, I could have never guessed I'd find such a large chunk of heaven right here in the desert. It's like it was made for me. It's 10:45 am.... do you think it's too early in the day..... never mind.
P.S. (for Lisa) it's next to Rubios in La Quinta, and it's 39 cents/oz no matter WHAT you get.
