Frozen yogurt has become a popular treat among people everywhere.

This frozen treat is a “healthy” alternative to ice cream (unless one is like me and loads up the yogurt with candy and cookies). But, regardless of one’s topping choices, Menchie’s is sure to satisfy even the sweetest of teeth.

I had heard about the Menchie’s frozen yogurt chain before they opened a branch in Lansing, but nonetheless, I was still eager to try it out.

The interior of Menchie’s is as colorful and vibrant as their unique flavors and toppings.

The toppings and flavors are labeled clearly with nutritional and dietary facts as well, so each consumer is well-informed on their snack.

This shop offered a variety of different flavors from “Honeydew Sorbet” to “Cinna-yumm-bun” and even seasonal flavors like “Holiday Eggnog” and “Dark Chocolate Cherry Brownie.”

The topping bar is generally my favorite part of frozen yogurt shops, and Menchie’s was no exception.

Menchie’s offered a wide variety of toppings to please any taste buds. There was everything from traditional candy, like M&M’s and Andes Mints, to different kinds of nuts, and even frosted animal cookies. Wow. They also had a selection of different fruits and mochi. And, who could forget chocolate chip cookie dough balls and brownie bites?

There was no problem parking and it was right in the front of Eastwood Towne Center, making it easily accessible for those in search of a quick treat.

As for the price, it is important for one to know that most frozen yogurt stores are priced by the ounce.

Menchie’s yogurt is priced at fifty-two cents per ounce and compared to other yogurt shops in the area, the price is pretty average. Sugar Berry in Okemos is forty-five cents an ounce, so price wise, the two destinations are very similar.

Overall, I was very pleased with my Menchie’s experience and would definitely recommend it to any fellow frozen yogurt lover.
