I'm not gonna lie...lately, life sucks. I have no time for anything and I am stressed all the time. My saving grace lately has been quality time with friends, cooking on weekends, and dessert. This past weekend, I was all set to make Active Foodie's black bean dip when I horribly discovered I was out of black beans!! I always like to have things like black beans on hand so I immediately threw on my hat and ran to the nearest Trader Joes. Down the street from TJs is Yogurtland which friends have been raving about for ages. There is always a line, but I finally braved it to see what all the fuss was about. After tasting a few flavors, I decided to go with the pistachio which I tasted and the chocolate twilight, that I didn't taste, but figured it would be good because...um, how could you go wrong with dark chocolate? I tasted a couple of other flavors like Superfruit tart, which was a wonderful combo of pom, and berries and the cheesecake flavor...forgettable. I love chocolate and pistachio, so I added brownie bits to my combo. One of the best things about Yogurtland is that they price based on weight and it seems to be fair pricing. My semi-full cup lasted me three days (most of which was yesterday) and only cost me about $2.50. The downside was that the chocolate part was like eating chocolate scented air, but the pistachio and brownie bits definitely made up for the lack of chocolate flavor in the yogurt. I definitely think that Yogurtland could be a cheaper alternative to my beloved Pinkberry of which I haven't been able to indulge in much lately. I'm definitely not ruling it out in the very near future...along with a calming bubble bath...and maybe a massage..or maybe...
