Froyo seems like it's all the craze these days with new stores popping up almost every other day! Will frozen yogurt continue to rise in popularity, or is it just a fad that will die down soon enough? Who knows, only time will tell. One store that has recently opened along the King Street strip in Newtown with a promise to be different is MooBerry. What really caught my eye was the bright colour scheme based upon purple. I admit I have grown a bit tiresome of the pink and sterile theme that resonates throughout many froyo joints. The purple really shakes things up a bit!
The walls are decorated with faux grass and DIY-style framed pictures, creating a very fun and kitsch atmosphere!
Is it just me, or do you also think that the heads placed haphazardly along the wall gives the image of deers peering out from a big maze? (No doubt in search for some frozen yogurt :P)
As soon as my friends and I entered, we were greeted with enthusiasm by the MooBerry staff. They were full of energy and eager to suggest the items they thought were fantastic on the menu.
After much ooh-ing and aah-ing, we decided on a few items to sample on the menu - there was a lot to choose from!
|Mango Passion, $6.00 for regular / Mooberry Magic, $6.00 for regular|
|MB Belgian Waffles, $12.95 for one|
|MB Churro Sticks, $8.00 for one|
|Coconut Affogato, $6.50|
And finally to what MooBerry is all about - the frozen yogurt! They have a fair array of toppings to choose from.
|Pomegranate froyo with coconut jelly, lychee pearls and pomegranate / Biscottie froyo with golden gaytime crumble, mochi and reese's pieces, $4.50 for small with toppings at $0.70 each|
I can see MooBerry thrive in Newtown with it's quirky interior and friendly, upbeat staff. I know I will be back for those smoothies and maybe seek refuge from the winter cold by sampling other items on their winter warmer's menu - the souffle sounds super yum!
