The snow came down last night. Beautiful, glorious snow!
Little man's school was cancelled so weeeee, out the door we went for a little treat—compliments of TCBY®.
My love for frozen yogurt dates back to the 80's when Grandpop would take me out for yogurt on hot, humid Kailua nights. I would carefully pick my flavor and combo of toppings—something along the lines of walnuts, marshmallows and chocolate chips. Pure heaven.
This sweet memory of times with grandpa is one I've always wanted to recreate for my own kids, but it's not been easy. For those of us with dairy-free kids, it's hard to find an ice cream or frozen yogurt shop that caters to our kind.
Well, thirty years later the memories come swirling back as I fill my cup with non-dairy, vegan, soft serve frozen yogurt at our local TCBY (aka The Country's Best Yogurt).
TCBY and Silk® have teamed up to offer a dairy-free, vegan, vanilla almond frozen yogurt in shops across the country and today Little Man and I sampled it.
The new Silk Vanilla was pretty good. Quite sweet for my taste, but then I really don't do much sugar anymore. The little dude inhaled his—complete with gummy bears and gummy worms. I stuck with the boba—a dignified topping don't you think?
I really dig the whole self-serve set up at TCBY. You walk right up, grab a cup, fill it with any of the 8-10 flavors of the day (one of which is always dairy-free and vegan), proceed to the topping bar (there are a few gluten-free and dairy-free options—just ask), then the scale to weigh your treat and pay up.
I highly recommend TCBY simply for the fact that once in a while we need a little treat AND that we feel like a typical family when we go to TCBY—a typical family on a Friday night enjoying tasty frozen yumminess.
