Fro-Yo: Summer’s hottest nutritional trend

Fro Yo Chocolate Snog King's Road Chelsea

Apparently you never forget your first Snog. You can Snog in Soho, Chelsea, Rio and even Dubai. As of late, Londoners have been Snogging all over the city with friends, family and even strangers. Some say it’s better than having to listen to them talk. Low in calories, this sweet treat will also leave you without the moral hangover. And we’re talking Snog, as in the frozen yogurt, not “making out with all the trimmings” as Urban Dictionary describes it.

Haven’t tried out this summer’s latest phenomena?  Well, it is time to get on the frozen yogurt train before it passes you by.

Headlines were made when PinkBerry made its way into Selfridges last month and only up’ing the ante in the most recent fashionable food craze.
 
With no sugar and zero fat, the in-crowd and fashion folks have been running to the nearest frozen yogurt establishment, and lucky for them, they’ve been popping up all over the city. Carrie Bradshaw once ate Tasti D-Lite, an American frozen yogurt franchise, in an episode of Sex and the City while discussing guy problems with the rest of her gang and the queues began as soon as it aired. The delightful dessert has become the new grabbing coffee, and is a fantastic excuse for meeting up with friends or when planning a hot date. But, don’t let the other names outshine London’s most well known fro-yo, because it seems that everyone prefers (to) Snog.  
 
Bright coloured, health conscious and made in Britain, the catchy and cleverly named yogurt stop, Snog, has been attracting yogurt seekers for quite some time.
 
Flavours such as mango and chocolate can seem a little boring, but when green tea, spiced apple, pink guava and calamansi are added, Snog has something going here. On top of the interesting flavours, toppings are a mandatory must have. Whether your preference is fruity, naughty, crunchy exotic or hot Snog sessions, there is definitely something to satisfy everyone’s taste.
 
Let’s face it, there are so many different ways to Snog with the wide variety of combinations, but it seems that the majority of customers always finish their desserts which come in four different sizes: Little, Classic, Big and Massive.  Snogging is a serious business, but for the faint of heart, smoothies are also offered. Swap your spoon for a straw and enjoy and English Summer, a Blueberry Spice or an Exotic Chocolate.  
 
The frozen yogurt isn’t the only thing to experience at the Snogs around town. Each establishment is different, and the Chelsea location is all about creativity mixed with technology. Hit up the Snog Photo booth to remember your first, or maybe even 40th Snog. Anyone who is anyone Snogs on King's Road. Ice cream was so last year.
