Sunday, May 1, 2011 My New Addiction - Swizzles in Darien
Yesterday I had my first Swizzleperience. It infected my dreams with its sassy tang and I woke up today knowing only one thing. I was going back for more.
Drooling emoticon :D'''
Cake batter and plain. I think they were both low-fat, I'm not really sure, I wasn't even paying attention. I was like a plump chick in a frozen yogurt store. Oh, wait. That's me.I was like a kid in a candy store...also me, eagerly pouring soft-serve love into a practical bucket like the ice cream professional I once was.
I worked at TCBY for the better part of 16 years, I am quite confident that when I'm dying from Alzheimer's and I don't remember my own name I will be able to make the perfect cone - three swirls and a peak. So I was all over them Taylor machines, ready to show off my skills (to my husband) and make me some dessert!
Cake batter and plain, like I said. To top it off they had a whole bar of fruits, candies, spheres called poppers (which I suspect are some agar-agar molecular gastronomy concoction) and, my personal favorite, kids cereal. Fruit Loops was yesterday's topping, today I had Apple Jacks and Granola. It's just enough of a crispy-o-crunch to reinforce the fact that I'm treating myself without actually throwing the plump chick out with the bathwater.
Love, love, love the taste of the plain. It totally brings back the flavor of the homemade yogurt my parents used to make when I was a kid. This is my first fro-yo of this kind, I have yet to experience Pinkberry or any other "tart" frozen yogurt shop. But Swizzles has set the bar pretty high, the competition has a battle to fight for my taste buds.
Two tits up!
