I owe Groupon a large debt of thanks for being the reason I first went to this particular purveyor of frozen yogurt. I snapped up a deal as a good food stop during the Yarn Crawl last year, and since then this place has ranked high on my list of favorites. Anything that brings my mom and I to San Antonio also brings us here, so after consoling ourselves with the loss of Yarn Barn by buying all of their yarn, I moved onto the next stage in grieving and had a big cup of froyo.

Experience: I love this place. It's locally-owned, and the first time we ever came here the owner was telling us about how they had worked on the flavors for quite a while to get them right. You can absolutely tell. You can't really go wrong with anything you choose here. And I was pleased to see that we're not the only ones to think so, it was pretty busy. So much so that I couldn't snap a pic without catching a few unsuspecting customers mid-swirl:
Instead, I settled for the Pink Lemonade Sorbet, very summer appropriate, with some Strawberry Tart. This was just as good as the stuff I had at The Yogurt Spot the other month that was such a revelation. Fruit was, of course, a required accessory. Mom had her personal favorite here, Dulce de Leche, and she also had some Cafe Ole, a coffee-flavored yogurt. This is a pretty big deal, because Mom doesn't even like milk in her coffee, so for a dairy product to please her with a coffee flavor, it's got to be a pure flavor.
Worth a revisit? I'm already looking forward to the next time I'm sure I'll be in the area, for the Crawl in October.
