Belated FroYo Frenzy Continues


Although the frozen yogurt craze seems to be waning, two new frozen yogurt establishments are coming to Walnut Street.

The former Bonté at Juniper and Walnut is just about set to become Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt. And then just a half-block away at the corner of 13th and Walnut will be the sequel to 18th and Chestnut’s Sweet Ending.

    Why do you say it’s waning? Yogurino has lines out the arse all of the time. Always.

  • Jen,

    I was referring to the craze waning at a national level. Pinkberry and RedMangos were popping up all over LA & New York a couple years ago. Now we’re seeing those spots close.

    No question about Yogorino, it’s booming and excellent.

  • Jimmy

    Frozen Yogure is so 2004.

  • Barry G

    13th & Walnut is a good location.

  • JD

    Barry, I agree.

    So, when do we bore ourselves of the 1980s revisionism? Put an Asian face on TCBYs, and everyone goes apeshit excited. I’ve tried it. Anyone here really things it’s more satisfying that Capogiro?

  • Willie

    If you don’t like it, don’t go. It’s certainly a little healthier than Capogiros, if it doesn’t taste better, but still Capogiros is not as great as people think, falling all over themselves.

  • Willie

    And we can certainly use more legit businesses in that area. Isn’t 5 Guys supposed to open around there too?

    I personally miss the bonte that was previously in that location. good coffe and some cute gals and friendly gals that worked there. While frozen yogurt will be a nice treat once in a while…i would have rather seen a more interesting food option. like broaster chicken.
