You are sitting at your desk one afternoon, staring out of the window, and you fall into a crazy daydream. In this daydream you find yourself in a quaint little shop where you can choose from an wide variety of great tasting frozen yogurt soft-serve. Then you can add to that soft-serve a rainbow of toppings, everything from sprinkles and chocolate chips, to candy like Kit Kat and Reese’s Pieces, to even more elaborate selections like cookie dough and cheesecake bites. There are sauces, fresh fruit, and more. And you get to do it all yourself, without restraint or employees getting in the way, letting your creativity run wild.
When your masterpiece is complete, you bring it to the counter, weigh it, and pay for it. Now you sit down with your creation and you are about to take your first bite of that gooey, yummy, many-colored, multi-textured, frozen fantasy and… then your boss throws something on your desk and you’re ripped from your daydream.
Well my friends, you no longer need to daydream. Menchie’s is here on Earth, and in Orlando.
Here’s a little more of a description from Menchie’s own website:
Menchie’s is the brainchild of Danna and Adam, whose passion and love for creating the perfect frozen yogurt quickly transformed into the ultimate fro-yo lover’s paradise. Other ice cream and frozen yogurt stores offer a limited amount of choices and charge customers for every flavor or topping they ordered. Menchie’s customers are able to serve themselves the perfect yogurt mix by choosing from a wide variety of delicious flavors, and more than 40 toppings with everything from chocolates, candies, and hot fudge, to granola and fresh seasonal fruit. You can mix all the flavors and toppings you want and only pay for what you take! When you’re finished crafting the perfect yogurt, just place it on the scale and pay per ounce.
Seeking to create the perfect yogurt experience, Menchie’s offers the purest and creamiest “real” yogurt flavors, featuring live and active cultures. Low in fat, and high in calcium, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt makes for both the perfect snack, or a delicious meal in itself. Menchie’s also serves a variety of tasty fruit sorbets, as well as low-carb and sugar-free yogurts. For an unforgettable experience, try your yogurt inside one of Menchie’s fresh-made waffle bowls.
Menchie’s loves being the ultimate fro-yo destination, but we truly pride ourselves on being a part of the local community. Menchie’s is the perfect place for the post-soccer game celebration or the Little League victory.
Local schools depend on Menchie’s to help fundraise for programs and events; and for every regular customer that walks into a Menchie’s, there’s a trained “Mixologist” that knows his or her name. It’s a beautiful thing.
Enough with the words, let see some pictures! (Sorry about the fuzziness. Just pretend you’re still in the daydream.)
My fully loaded frozen yogurt usually comes to about $5 and change. If that price seems a bit high, I’ll be honest and say that what I order could easily feed two–not that it ever will! Get your own!
Menchie’s has a few locations around Orlando. I visited this one:
Now get out of the parks and go to Menchie’s! By the way, the answer to the question “Is Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt really Heaven on Earth?” is YES.
