OMG Orange Leaf!

Okay for you ice cream lovers out there, twist soft serve ice cream is no longer the hot thing to do.  Neither is chocolate covered cones or slushies, today it's frozen yogurt!  Something that ice cream lovers feel that they can indulge in without feeling guilty, is it really healthier?  Probably not, but I'm going to continue to tell myself that it is.  It tastes almost the same as regular ice cream but it's a little more tart and has flavored yogurt as its main ingredient.  Today there are thousands of frozen yogurt places around the U.S., including my personal favorite the leaf that's orange or ORANGE LEAF! There are 150 stores open in the U.S. and 93 coming spoon (get it spoon lol).  They even have Orange Leaf in Australia, damn if it's there then this place has got to be good!

But when you walk into Orange Leaf it's a new experience for sure, the interior design scheme seems like some sort of 22nd century kind of thing. Customers can choose from among 16 different flavors of frozen yogurt! A few flavors include Cheesecake, Wedding Cake, Cookies&Cream, Brownie Batter, Peanut Butter and Snickerdoodle plus probably 20 more flavors (different locations have different flavors available).  You can mix and match however much you want of each flavor because the price of your froyo depends on the weight of it!

Customers choose either a 16- or 24- ounce cup and fill it with as much yogurt and toppings as they please, it's .49 cents an ounce! I don't know if that's a good deal or a very smart scheme to make customers believe the froyo is cheap, but they make it work.  There are also a ridiculous amount of toppings, I mean it's insane almost overwhelming.  You name it, they probably have it; Butterfinger, Marshmallows, M&M's, Graham Cracker, Dried Fruits, Oreos, Fruity Pebbles, Gummy Bears, Brownie, Blackberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, and any other berry there is.  ITS SO GOOD! The line is usually crazy and out the door, but so worth the wait. So basically if you haven't been there you have to go, and it will become an obsession believe me.
