Cantaloop: Reviewed

chwodown | May 11, 200710:59 AM     16

Since I drive by the intersection of Hollywood and La Brea on a daily basis I thought I would try its newest "natural frozen yogurt" spot. Not much has been written about Cantaloop so I thought I would be a pioneer. Stepping in, I noticed two things already, parking was super easy in its lot, and it was practically empty. It turns out they have three flavors, regular, mango and pomengranate. Being in a Pom mood, I ordered it, topped with strawberries and fruity pebbles.

After getting it I immediately noticed a difference, the quantity was huge. Blame it on the inexperienced yogurt machine operator, or the store's generosity, but their 'two loops' (or medium) was at least a third more than you get at any competitor's yogurt shop. I couldn't wait to take my first bite intwo that pinkish, swirly mountain that had been so generously prepared.

The first few bites almost gave me an icre cream headache. Not really what I associate froyo with, but I have a theory why this happened. Because Cantaloop may not get as much business as some other 'berriy' places, maybe their yogurt gets a little more frozen than it should? Either way, I toughened up and continue plowing down the mountain of yogurt, picking up fruity pebbles and little chunks of strawberry on the way.

My final verdict: I would go again in a heartbeat. Its far more convenient than any other place and they are extremely friendly. I can't wait to try the mango with some other toppings. Oh and they only take cash, the only downside to my yogurt experience.
