After taking one of my friends to FroZenYo for the first time he remarked that it was, ""the best four dollars I've spent in a while."" If you like to be refreshed, enjoy mixing and matching flavors, and don't want to break the bank, FroZenYo is probably the best place for four (or more...or less!) of your dollars.
FroZenYo stands out from other froyo shops because it is self-serve, a la carte, and you control your tasty, refreshing destiny. With over 30 flavors, including sugar-, fat-, and lactose-free choices, FroZenYo can be both a liberating and daunting experience. Cookies and Cream and Mint Chocolate? By all means go ahead and add a bit of Cheesecake or Passion Fruit to the mix.
The frozen yogurt here is a bit sweeter than other places around the City. However, if you prefer a tangier, more yogurt-y taste go for FroZenYo's Original Tart or California Tart flavors. Another friend remarked that the best thing about this place is they have a ton of flavors and they all taste exactly like (I would say, better than) they should. The Blueberry tastes like tart, yet sweet berries, the Peach is quite peachy, the Butter Pecan is delightfully buttery.
But there's more! Not only do you get to mix and match as many flavors as you want, FroZenYo also has a toppings bar for adding everything from fruit to Froot Loops to your cold concoction.
The self serve format can be a double edged sword because you pay by weight. This can either be great, if you just wanted a little bit of Strawberry yogurt for your walk to the Metro, or unnerving, when you realize you are going to have to pay with a credit card because you only came with four dollars.
Most places either give you too much or too little all while ripping you off. FroZenYo is an example of good business, quality product, and an exercise in self-control. For all these reasons it could easily be the District's best frozen yogurt shop.
Pros: a la carte, variety of flavors, cheap
Cons: can get crowded
