Up until around a month and a half ago, the only yogurt place close to my office was Californiaberry where the only thing I found even remotely palatable was the blueberry frozen yogurt. If I wanted a Red Mango or White Hat hit of proper fro-yo, I’d have to wait till it was time to go home and I could trek to either Greenbelt III or Rustan’s at the Glorietta.
And then, Golden Spoon opened up at the Paseo Center.
Yogurt purists who like their fro-yo tart and white should stop reading at this point. But for the rest of you – especially those with a chronic sweet tooth but want to cut down – please do read on.
While Golden Spoon has its own tangy take on classic white fro-yo, its primary stock in trade is dessert-style soft-serve yogurt in a variety of rich, tempting flavors: raspberry cheesecake, boysenberry, peanut butter cup, cake batter, and even one in Belgian chocolate. Since Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are a personal guilty pleasure of mine, I gamely went with a kiddie serve (P 85.00) of peanut butter cup fro-yo.
To approximate the tastes of an actual PB cup candy, I had my fro-yo topped with generous helpings of Reese’s peanut butter chips and dark chocolate chips. (I suspect that Hershey’s Special Dark morsels were used; the flavor was kind of unmistakable.)
The fro-yo itself was creamy and smooth with a rich taste of roasted peanuts. Paired with the chips, it made a most satisfying dessert.
Oh, and may I add that the yogurt itself was non-fat? 😉 Yes, I know I negated that when I had the chips thrown on, but hey: I don’t feel so guilty. :p
