Does anyone have suggestions on where to get some good frozen yogurt (similar to Penguins, or TCBY, not those new foofy-foo places with the green-tea frozen yogurt)? I’m pregnant, and sadly this is the only craving I have and I can’t satisfy it without driving outside city or state limits it seems like. Soft serve icecream works too, but somehow frozen yogurt seems like a healthier alternative (I’m sure they’re both just as bad for you but ignorance is bliss when it comes to dessert for me). I can’t wait to hear if anyone has recommendations- thanks!March 20, 2008 at 10:37 pm #619228
m – we went all the way to the Northgate area to get TCBY last summer. Both of us spent our teenage years in Southern California and we were feeling a bit nostalgic for the old-school frozen yogurt shops with all different toppings. I’d LOVE to hear if anyone else knows of a closer one. The one we ended up at was inside a Subway Sandwich shop and was definitely not quite what we were hoping for.
In the meantime, Safeway on Roxbury has a huge selection of Haagen-Dasz frozen yogurt. There are a bunch of really good flavors that may work in a pinch!March 21, 2008 at 12:02 am #619229
that last one has all the Baskin Robbins locations you’d ever want to visit around here…but..has Husky’s Deli…and a place out in Burien , too…March 21, 2008 at 6:33 am #619230
Costco’s snack bar has frozen yogurt (or maybe it’s softserve, can’t remember!) – vanilla, chocolate or swirl, you can also get it with berries. I think the plain is only $1.50 and it is very good (and a huge serving!).
Used to be able to get frozen yogurt at Homefront Smoothies on Alki, not sure if they still use it in their smoothies.
There’s always McDonald’s vanilla softserve.
And if you’re really desperate, there is a Freshens at SeaTac airport, concourse C!March 21, 2008 at 4:14 pm #619231
Hmmm, I have an idea.
Anyone want to start a burgers-n-yogurt takeout joint in WS? *grin*
It’s not THAT odd a combo. Once upon a time when I was 15, I worked for a place called “BRRR! Burgers and Yogurt.” We made the burgers from fresh and fries were cut to order – we had one of those old old fry cutters mounted on the wall above a bucket.
That was in back of house. In front of house, we had a full frozen yogurt bar, with about 6 or 8 rotating flavors, and about 30 toppings. The yogurt came standard with 2 toppings of choice, and one could also order pints and half-gallons of yogurt to go. It was packed to order as well.
The place did really a lot of business. Placing one near a high school is often a great idea, as kids are always hungry :)
So, who wants to open the place? I’m not up for being on my feet those kind of hours anymore. Plus, I like my current job.March 21, 2008 at 5:05 pm #619232
The TCBY at Seatac airport and I were good friends back when I did massage at Concourse C about 12-13 years ago. I did the frozen yogurt/burger combo too!March 21, 2008 at 5:58 pm #619233March 21, 2008 at 6:08 pm #619234March 23, 2008 at 4:21 am #619235
Erik…small world..wow…I worked at the Massage Bar from July 1997 until…ummm….well, about 4 1/2 years later. I started out briefly at C Concourse, but went to North Satellite when it opened. I was a supervisor at North when I left…I believe it was in 2001. Have been in private practice here in WS since then…March 23, 2008 at 7:47 am #619236
I worked there and at the Convention Center 1995 – 1996. I think the airplane fuel finally got to me.March 23, 2008 at 8:13 am #619237
yes, you were before my time…but I did work briefly at the convention center…the head boss there was an older woman..can’t remember her name just now…but a fair “major domo” – lolMarch 23, 2008 at 8:13 am #619238
and if the jet fuel didn’t get ya, well, the job and lack of tips did – lol…
ok…back to the yogurt discussion :)March 23, 2008 at 11:55 am #619239
The Costco frozen yogurt is good. The way Costco is set up, you don’t need a card to get to the snack bar area. But strolling down 4th Avenue S to take in the sites, and stopping in at Costco to pick up a yogurt is not an everyday event for most people.March 23, 2008 at 1:29 pm #619240
Now I’m craving frozen yogurt too.
Didn’t we use to have more frozen yogurt places around? Maybe they went the way of the bagel shops (I miss Bruegger’s.)April 16, 2008 at 3:40 am #619241
Jan and Erik I also worked at the TCBY stand. I was one of the original operators of that stand. I worked at the airport from 1988-1993. Very Small worldApril 16, 2008 at 3:42 pm #619242
