Kiwi Fro-Yo Comes to Penn State
The Kiwi Yogurt chain is opening its newest store right here in State College, next to the Student Book Store at 324 E. College Ave, this February (no word yet on exact date). Kiwi is a Main Line, Pa.-based, family-owned company founded in 2008 set on providing “the ultimate dessert experience.”
And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like. Try everything from golden standards like Pure Vanilla and Milk Chocolate to Krazy Kahlua, Raspberry Pomegranate Tart, and my personal fave Red Velvet Cake. But your journey is not over yet my friends; no, no, no. Next comes the topping bar, with all sorts of fresh fruits, nuts, candies, cereals, and sauces.
Some of you may have already had the pleasure of experiencing Kiwi in your home towns. I know I frequented the West Chester one quite frequently this summer, so I’ll give you a tip. What’s most unique about Kiwi is that you pay by the ounce. Kiwi newbs might walk in and see that your future treat is only 60¢ an ounce. You might think, “Gee! What a bargain!” Which it may be I’m not familiar with the economics of ice cream). However, the cups come in sizes “big,” “bigger,” and “waffle bowl,” and believe me, you will not think twice about filling that sucker up with all the aforementioned flavors and goodies. If you don’t control yourself, you will end up paying $10 for fro-yo. Don’t get intimidated though- Kiwi is definitely worth a trip, especially now that you know how to play the game. If you have any favorite combinations, share them in the comments!
