Frozen Yogurt - 2008
Ã¶ko - CLOSED
When frozen yogurt came around the first time, it was like hearing that the laws of the universe had been reversed?ice cream that you can gorge on because it?s fat-free! Now we file frozen yogurt, along with trickle-down economics, under ?Lies They Told Us in the ?80s.? But frozen yogurt is back, draped in an even more virtuous disguise: Fro-yo is now the domain of Pinkberry, Red Mango, Yolato, Flurt, and a dozen or so imitators with equally infantile names. It isn?t just fat-free; it?s also supposedly good for your digestive system, the earth, and whatever else might need saving. The tart, ?natural yogurt??flavored soft-serve originated in South Korea and then made its way to New York via L.A. It all tastes the same. There?s one exception??ko uses yogurt made by a Greek family in Queens, and the result is intensely tart, densely yogurty fro-yo.
