"My fro-yo strategy (or lack thereof) is basically to mix everything I like into one concoction. Plus, it helps to get a nice mix of texture: a little gooey chocolate, some crunch granola, and chewy mochi keeps things interesting — ya know, for the five or so minutes it takes you to eat it."

Look, call me traditional, but plain is the only way to go. I like how it has that weird, powdery aftertaste. And in terms of things being powdery, well, the flour on my delicious mochi is only going to increase the pleasure. I throw the blueberries in there just so people won't think I'm one of those kids who only eats white foods.

"When I get ice cream, I like to load it up with lots of super unhealthy toppings (mmm, gummy bears), but frozen yogurt makes me feel somewhat healthy, hence why I veer into fruit-topping territory. I like the tropical feeling of coconut, so I load up on lychee, kiwi, and raspberries (my all-time favorite fruit). Mochi keeps it from being too healthy, and also, it's kind of the best thing ever. And that's my semi-healthy, kind-of-tropical, totally delicious take on fro-yo."

"Is it counterintuitive to the whole point of frozen yogurt that I want mine to be as chocolaty and sweet as humanly possible? Really? Well, I don't care. Give me Butterfingers on that baby and throw on some mochi while you're at it (at least I can pretend it's healthy.)"

"Okay, so I know my fro-yo combo is a little over the top and definitely not diabetes- or cavity-friendly. BUT, in my opinion, I'm heading to the scoop shop for an indulgence. If I wanted nonfat cold air and fruit, I'd just go to the fruit stand."
