Garrett is obsessed with the yogurt parfait things from Starbucks. It might be 85% of his diet. Every time he gets one he makes me take a bite. Honestly, yogurt tends to make me gag– literally gag. But I guess all the bites I’ve been taking have finally made me a little bit more okay with the yogurt trend. Now I kind of look forward to stealing a bite or two of his yogurt. Knowing he’s into it and knowing that I don’t totally gag from yogurt anymore… I suggested we try the Chobani store in Soho (152 Prince Street).
(Please note: It could have gone many ways, including my stomach turning the minute we walked in and not being able to complete this adventure.)
IT WAS AMAZING.
Really. Garrett ordered larges for both of us (instantly I was even more anxious because I was picturing a massive bowl of, gulp, yogurt). He got a peanut butter and jelly one and I got the fruit and granola one.
The fruit and granola was perfect, with a little bit of honey. I think the honey kind of cut the tartness of the yogurt which is why I think I loved it so much. It was the perfect humid day snack. And Garrett’s? I’m pretty sure I could have licked his bowl clean if he let me. Such an unique twist on a childhood classic. Absolutely delicious.
Whether you’re a yogurt lover or a not-so-lover, I think you’d be able to find something on the menu that suits your taste. My only criticism is the spoon; it’s wood and gave me goosebumps.
Okay… that’s all. You must go if you’re in the area!
