Directly across from Las Olas' long-standing staple for sweets -- Kilwin's Chocolates & Ice Cream -- is a shiny new place to alleviate your "Clean-Plate-Charlie-Sheen" sugar (not crack) withdrawals.
Yogurt Ur Way opened less than two weeks ago on the SE corner of 8th Avenue and E. Las Olas Boulevard.
Even on a late afternoon, the new shop was bustling with a crowd that seemed to be flocking to the more exotic flavors such as Red Velvet, Blueberry Acai, or Dolce Leche. In total, there are 18 all-natural flavors of frozen yogurt, ice cream, sorbet, and custard manufactured by Yo Cream.
Yogurt Ur Way claims the frozen yogurt is special because of strict temperature regulation. Owners say yogurt served at 26 degrees freezes heavier and won't numb your taste buds -- allowing for a more glorious gustatory experience.
Pick up a bowl, choose your flavor, fill it to your satisfaction, then head to the topping bar. Decorate your mound of sweetness with toppings like Chinese fruit candies (small beads of jelly fruit flavor that burst in your mouth), animal cookies, or raspberry truffle cups. Want something fresh? The bar also has fresh fruit options such as blackberries, sliced apple, and kiwi.
I enjoyed the Cappuccino Frozen Yogurt (100 calories for 1/2 cup), sprinkled with chocolate fudge brownie bits and slivered almonds. My generous portion cost around $3 (45 cents per ounce).
