More Hits Of Yogurt

I told you I was going to get my yogurt fix while I was here. I ended up at Pop Culture in the Pearl randomly driving around.
Compared to Skinnidip, this place was ghetto. I got blueberries and mandarin oranges. Come on, mandarin oranges from a can! But their other fresh fruit choices were terrible. It was good, but not as good as Skinnidip. The Skinnidip yogurt itself was just better. This yogurt didn’t taste as fresh. The place was empty when I was there. Perhaps that was a sign.

Frozen Yogurt Fix

I also got my frozen yogurt fix on while I was here. There aren’t too many, but there are more in Portland than in Philadelphia. The below is from Skinnidip in the Pearl. I got kiwi, mango, and raspberries on plain yogurt. Man, I wolfed this thing down like I was starving. Yes, it was great.

Late Nights At The Franklin Fountain

When you think about dessert options late at night, there really aren’t that many that come to mind. The other night, the only thing that popped into my head was the Franklin Fountain. You know this place, it’s in old city, it’s an old school style ice cream parlor / soda shop. The employees even look old school.
They make their own ice cream and have tons of specialties, which include sundaes, fountain drinks, and even cakes and pies! And you always have the head of old Ben looking down on you. I went simple and got a scoop of peach ice cream in a cone. They had some signs about how the peach ice cream was made with local peaches, so I had to try it out. Man, was it good! So peachy, fresh, and light. Not artificial tasting or looking at all. J, R, and D all got shakes.
Also a variety of specialty sodas. Plus, the place itself is adorable. The two brothers who run the joint painstakingly remodeled the place. Everything about it is cute. And it’s open until midnight on the weekends, and until 11 during the week. Go get you some before it starts getting cold again.
