Sweet Tart Frozen Yogurt, Newton Center

A few co-workers and I just came back from here, a nice little fro-yo break in our day.

Standard weigh-and-pay ($0.45/oz) frozen yogurt place, with a cheerful interior. The quality of the yogurt seemed excellent - milky, creamy and good. It almost tasted like the Sophia's they use at YoBro in Brookline, but it didn't seem as rich. This is a good thing.

Flavors I sampled:

-Red Velvet: Rich and chocolate-y, very accurate Red Velvet flavor. No sign of any artificial/chemical-y taste.

-Peach mango tart: A standout! Creamy, zingy, bright flavorful peach taste, with a shade of mango.

-Plain Tart: I wish this had more tart yogurt taste. (See Mixx for my ideal plain tart)

-Watermelon sorbet: The consistency was a tad too watery, but otherwise it had a decent, cartoon-y fake watermelon flavor (which is not a bad thing).

-White chocolate mousse: My least favorite, although I'm not much of a white chocolate fan in general.

This place stands out with its immense selection of candies for toppings. It is basically like a candy store, with the standard array of bulk goodies (there are even plastic bags to purchase candy in bulk) and some interesting other ones: strawberry creme malted milk balls and spearmint gummies were two things I'd never seen before.

Standard fresh-fruit bar, as well as diced candy bars and crumbled up chocolate chip cookies. 5-6 unlabeled Ghirardelli sauce squirtbottles in varying shades of brown. A variety of chopped nuts.

Overall, I'm very happy to have this so close to my home and work!
