If your kids start feigning sick and needing to go the doctor, it could be a case of FroYoitis, a rare condition that arises when a cute-as-pie serve-yourself frozen yogurt store opens at the foot of a pediatrician's office. In a real estate move so cunning it's sure to replace lollipops as the universal get-well-soon treat, CeCe Moore plonked her candy-colored store in the ground floor of the building that will soon house The Children's Clinic of Nashville, in the new Publix shopping center in Belle Meade.
A California native, Moore has brought a sunny taste of FroYo to the gleaming new Hill Center, with a bank of soft-serve machines spitting out non-fat creamy flavors and tart sorbet-style treats. Fill a cup with froyo, then head to the toppings dispensers, where you pile on everything from Froot Loops to fresh blackberries. Then weigh it. At 55 cents per ounce, the average serving comes out to about $5.
On opening day yesterday, we sampled a silky smooth cookies & cream, a frosty mango and the Original Tart, whose refreshing yogurty tang blended beautifully with the sweet mango.
Sitting at the sidewalk tables on a sunny day, it felt a little bit like being on vacation. After a tetanus shot upstairs, it just might be enough to make the ouch feel better.
