For about six years now, I’ve been telling my husband that what downtown Puyallup needs is an ice cream or frozen yogurt shop (that’s froyo if you’re cool like that).
Well, my husband is not in the frozen yogurt biz, but thank goodness someone is!
Elements Frozen Yogurt is right across from Pioneer Park in the same building as the city hall. We stopped at the library first, so we left the car and walked across using the bright orange flags to navigate the crosswalk. Henry relished the power.
Elements has a cool, retro decor-think what a diner run by the Jetsons would look like-and a super friendly staff behind the counter.
You can pick any container you like, and then you serve yourself any of their totally delectable flavors, mixing and matching as you like. Both boys found it super fun to pull the levers, though Henry needed some help. Once you have your yogurt, you can load up it up to your heart’s content with toppings.
They charge by the ounce, which means there isn’t any way to know what you’ll be paying until you get to the scale. Sadly, I didn’t have my camera along. The boys each had what I’d call a small serving with a totally excessive amount of toppings, and it ran me about 7.50 for both. I went back and got a mediumish amount of plain coconut (you know….for research….) and it was 3.42. I’m guessing most folks’ dishes end up being between 3-5 bucks, though I’ll warn you, I saw more than one person going back for more. It’s addictive like that.
There is a low-fat green tea available right now, but based on the deliciousness of what we had, I’m guessing this isn’t exactly health food. But, if you want to get a big ‘ol bunch because it’s yogurt, you have my permission. Try the coconut-you won’t be sorry.
Our overall impression was a big spoons up. I was really impressed that each of the messes my crazy monkeys made were cleaned up almost immediately.
I also noticed on their fb page mention of a group buying deal coming in September. I’ll keep you posted.
If you know another place that sounds yummy, let me know!
