One of my favorite things right now are these new, trendy frozen yogurt places that are popping up all over the place. They usually have half a dozen favors, with fancy dispensers that will mix two together. They also feature crazy toppings like fruit loops, gummy worms and chopped up candy bars. The best is that it’s sold by weight, and you can have as much or as little as you want.

We first stumbled on one while we were on a day trip in Annapolis. I ended up going the chocolate overload route, but also got to sample some of the neat flavors like cookies and cream and cake batter. When we got back, I began to notice them everywhere.

The one close to my house finally opened over the holiday weekend, so we stopped by after dinner this evening. Although I ended up going the chocolate route again, I did sample some strawberry lemonade and cake batter that were really yummy.

If you have one of these places nearby, I highly recommend trying one. It’s definitely a fun time, and you have more control over the amount you eat because you weigh out exactly how much you want yourself. With all the different toppings, the combinations are practically endless.
