Food find: Penguins Yogurt



I have met very few people who don't like chocolate. Really, how can you dislike chocolate? It's rich, creamy, full of antioxidants and has an abundance of uses.

I certainly have a sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied every now and then. Before I left Tucson, I went to Penguins Yogurt on University, right by the University of Arizona. The place is always bustling with students and offers gelato, ice cream and yogurt, with the latter being the most popular. The frozen yogurt flavors change everyday, but one constant is the bar with myriad topping possibilities, including gummy worms, chocolate chips, crushed Oreos, peanut butter cups and any other item that you can imagine would be good on a frozen dessert.

I opted for the Dutch chocolate yogurt with hot fudge. You can always ask for samples and I chose this flavor because it has coconut and savory spice undertones that was evident despite the cold serving temperature. The samples are presented in little paper cups like what you get ketchup in at McDonalds, except they look really cute. I suggest trying a couple of flavors, because that's what they want you to do.


The hot chocolate syrup was not necessary, but I wanted it. It was a chocolate kind of day.

I would have thought the same - who can ever dislike chocolates?

I would have picked the same flavor as you - chocolate.

We can become good chocolate friends :)

I am one of the few who is not into Chocolate unless it's 60% Cocoa or dark Belgian!!:D
It's probably the sugar content I don't like,not the Cocoa!

I don't dislike chocolates but I am very fussy with what chocolates I consume. :)
