The Coconut Seven Layer Bar ice cream was TO DIE FOR. Do they sell that kind in the store?? If so, I will buy it every day forever.
However, $4.50 for a small scoop? Far too high if you ask me.
3 stars because I am torn.
This location is fine. The person working the shop was friendly and rang up my purchase quickly. They have a large selection of toppings (more than I've seen at other Menchie's locations) and it wasn't too busy when we were there, which was nice.
There were a couple of cons. One of the yogurts machines was empty and I wasn't really excited by the range of flavors they had. I had my go-to Takes the Cake Batter because none of the other flavors were really too good. They are also kind of stingy with the sample cups and only put a few out when people seem to be coming in. The three of us used the few she put out fairly quickly and she had to put more - not sure why she doesn't just fill the tray with cups?
Overall, this was a fine Menchie's, but I have been to other locations that are a bit better.
I have been to the Cherry de Pon location in Renton several times and I pretty much feel the same way about this location. It's okay. There are a lot more flavors to choose from at this location, but a lot are fruit-based. I prefer more of the chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter, etc type flavors. I'm not a huge fan of the texture of the yogurt - it's kind of granulated or something odd. The flavors are not particularly strong either - at least of the ones I have tried. It's a very mild flavor - last time I combined two and didn't notice a huge difference between them.
They do have a nice selection of toppings - including delicious honey boba - which improves the overall taste of the froyo for me.
Staff is friendly and the space, while awkward, is cute. I'm sure I will be back here, but I'd rather pick Menchies, Zoeyogurt, or Revelations over Cherry de Pon.
Why so many 1 star reviews? This place doesn't have amazing ice cream, but it's decent and hits the spot in a pinch. Yes, prices are high, but it's in the Downtown Disney district, so what do you expect?
I got vanilla yogurt with rainbow sprinkles and they DUMPED on a zillion sprinkles. I was beyond pleased with that because I am a sprinkle fiend.
The staff was generally friendly, there was no line, and I was overall happy with my ice cream. I would come back here again.
I am going to be kind and bump my rating up a star. I came back here in on Monday with a real desire for froyo and, since it's really the only place in the area besides Red Mango, I had no other choice.
I tried different flavors this time around - cookies and cream and birthday cake - and they were less icy than the flavors I previously had. Granted, the flavors were still very mild and bland, but they were overall better than what I had before.
The staff is very sweet and they will ask you what toppings or flavors you are interested in so that they can add them into their rotation.
Still not the best frozen yogurt around, but it works in a pinch.
I've always thought that Molly Moon's Ice Cream is just okay. It's fine, it works in a pinch, and it certainly satisfies my ice cream cravings.
But is it the best ice cream I've ever had? No. Is it close? No.
The ice cream is usually quite creamy, which I love. But it is the flavors here that irk me. They are either too bland or too in-your-face. For example - the vanilla bean? Creamy, but lacking in any vanilla flavor. And the salted caramel? Creamy, but WOAH DANG - that is too much salt. The best flavor balance I've found so far is probably the maple walnut, but even then I've had better maple walnut elsewhere.
The staff is always friendly, they give you free samples, and the scoops are huge for the price. This location never seems to have a long line either, which is great.....
....but I'm just underwhelmed. I don't find Molly Moon's to be as amazing as everyone else seems to. I'd never turn it down, but if I had the option, I'd go to another ice cream shop instead.
Okay, so...I thought Molly Moon's had decent ice cream. My kid's cup of maple walnut was creamy and filling, with just the right amount of maple. However...it wasn't anything special! I am confused by the length of lines that pour out onto the sidewalk from this location. The ice cream is good, but it's not THAT good.
I will say that prices are VERY reasonable and I like that you can try samples before purchasing. I would like to come back here for ice cream, but I am of the opinion that the ice cream is not good enough for me to make a special trip out to Wallingford to stand in line for 20+ minutes. I would likely have to be in the area for me to come back here anytime soon...
...although I hear that there is a Coconut Chocolate Chunk flavor. That option was not there when I was there...I would like to try that kind because I love coconut......
Stopped here to get a much needed vanilla ice cream cone after a hike to Wallace Falls. Pretty much your standard, run-of-the mill McDonald's. Staff was friendly enough, ice cream was plentiful and cold, and the place seemed clean.
Location is a little awkward, as it is located right off of a roundabout intersection.
There are several ice cream places in Ocean Shores and after I tore myself away from Murphy's, I decided to give Peppermint Parlor a shot. Prices are comparably to Murphy's and they have a VERY large variety of flavors.
The ice cream was fine, nothing special. I was a little disappointed in my choice since there were so many different flavors to choose from and the ice cream wasn't stellar. I'd rather have fewer choices and better tasting ice cream!
The servers were high school girls who were very polite, but definitely seemed uninterested in their jobs.
One downside is that you can't see all the flavors because many of them are are in dark-covered freezer containers. You have to either ask for a sample or just go ahead and pick one and hope that it's what you were imagining!
I hate to be harsh, but there are much better self-serve frozen yogurt places in the area.
I went here last night with some friends to grab a bit of frozen yogurt. I am so addicted to this self-serve froyo craze that I'd already had Zoeyogurt with another friend earlier in the night. But since I'd never tried Skinny Dip, I thought I'd get a small bowl just to give it a shot.
The interior was pretty cute - bright and colorful - but once I looked past that, I was surprised to see that they don't really have that many flavors. At least, not as many as other places I've been to. This wouldn't have been an issue had the flavors not been pretty much all the same thing. They were all some varieties of either chocolate or fruit with vanilla as the added bonus. After staring at the flavors, I wasn't even sure I wanted to get any more froyo. But I decided to try out Chocolate Monkey. It was pretty good - tasted like a choco-banana bomb pop - yum! So I put a little bit in my bowl and attempted to head for the toppings bar.
There were a ton of people there, which isn't the fault of Skinny Dip, but by the time I got to the toppings, my Chocolate Monkey was already melting. It was pretty soft when I got it, but it was slowly approaching milkshake stage as I finally started selecting my toppings.
They have a pretty wide variety of toppings...however, the main bar area was an absolute filthy mess. Crumbs, fruit, and nuts everywhere...all over in between each of the containers. It was actually a pretty unappealing sight, not to mention a nut allergy nightmare. I took one topping from that area, but selected my others from the individual candy containers on the walls.
I stood in line at the counter and when it was finally my turn, the clearly flustered young man at the counter rang me up. I paid with a card since I had no cash. He said I would need to sign and then asked if I wanted a copy of my receipt, to which I said yes. Then I moved to the side so others could set down their froyo and waited. And waited...and picked up a pen...and waited....all while he rang up the next group. Finally I said, "So...do I need to sign or what?" He looked alarmed, then fumbled around trying to find my receipt. When he finally did, I signed and then had to again request a copy of my receipt. He froze for a second and then hit the print button on the credit card machine. I got my receipt and was finally out of there with my rapidly melting froyo.
I dug in. It was okay. I enjoyed some of the unique toppings that they had (Hershey's Cookies and Cream drops, York Pieces, etc), but wasn't very impressed overall.
I feel sort of bad writing such a negative review, but my experience there was really just meh. Disappointing is probably the best word to describe it. I would be willing to come back and try again if I were in the area, but I'd probably prefer to zip over to Menchies where I have had consistently better froyo and service.
Whenever I wanted an ice cream fix while on the Ave, I would go to the Mix. Alas, the Mix is now gone and I am forced to find another location to satisfy my delicious ice cream needs. Unfortunately, this Haagen-Dazs is not it. I mean, this place is tolerable, but it's certainly nothing special.
I came in here on a Friday night right before closing and ordered a vanilla frozen yogurt with rainbow sprinkles. The staff was pleasant enough, but the prices were far too high for the amount of ice cream you got. I got a small because I didn't want to pay for a larger size!
The seating in this store is super cramped and few people can fit inside at a time.
I'm sure I'll be back here while I continue my search for a replacement for the Mix, but once I do...I doubt I will return here.
I've just never really been a fan of Coldstone. The prices are too high, the portions are FAR too big, and the ice cream is just...ice cream.
I can't believe how gigantic a 'Like It' size is. Far too big for someone like me. Next time I'll have to order a kid size - if they'll let me. And if there is a next time.
$5 bucks for an ice cream is far too much. I don't even know how much the prices are for the larger sizes - I probably don't WANT to know!
This Coldstone location was okay, but definitely not great. There was no line when we got there, but the staff didn't seem particularly pleased to be working, to say the least. While one girl was making my ice cream, another girl ran me up at the register. When finished, the first girl walked up, said "Here's this," and plopped my ice cream down on the counter while I was paying. Lovely.
Visit number one during a layover in Salt Lake City: One star.
It would be zero stars if possible. We tried to order White Chocolate Mousse, but the lady (who spoke English quite poorly) told us that the yogurt wasn't frozen enough yet...and we saw the proof of this when she tried to put it in the bowl, but it was all melty and runny. This, after having had waited in line for a longass time (during which there were only two people ahead of us), was insanely frustrating. We wanted our TCBY, dammit!
Visit number two on return layover: Three stars
We got our White Chocolate Mousse, but the lady was still working there and the sprinkles tasted weird and stale to me.
Overall? This place pretty much blows, but I'm sure it's better when there's actually someone working there who doesn't fail at life.
Didn't have the best experience here. Despite hearing rave reviews about Red Mango, I just am not a fan of the style of yogurt. I prefer sweet froyo, not tart froyo....and everything here is tart/bitter, regardless of flavor.
Having never been to a Red Mango before, I assumed it would be like other froyo places. I would request my flavor and then they would bring the cup of my flavor over to the toppings area and ask what I would like on top. Instead, the girl behind the counter stared at me until I told her I wanted to try the Madagascar Vanilla. She rang it up at the register and stared at me again. So I said I wanted yogurt chips on top. She rang it up, I paid, and then she made the yogurt. It was fine to do it in that order, I guess, but it wasn't exactly the most glowing customer service I have ever received, to say the least.
Prices seemed HIGH for what I got. I got a small with ONE topping and it was over $4 dollars! What the heck? I can get way more yogurt and way more toppings at any other yogurt place in the greater Seattle area for that much.
And, like I said before, I am simply not a fan of tart yogurt...I know that's a personal preference, but it just lacks deliciousness.
I highly doubt I will be back here.
I love Dairy Queen. A lot. But this location really isn't that great. A friend and I went through the drive-thru to get mini Blizzards and when we got them, the consistency wasn't good - they were practically melted! The flavor was great and mine had lots of cookie dough, but I wasn't too please that I had to rush through eating it before it melted into a liquid state. Blizzards are supposed to be solid and you can turn them upside down and they won't spill. There was no chance of that happening with these!
Maybe this was a one time thing...but it was definitely disappointing. We'll have to see what happens the next time I go back.
