Frozen Yogurt Friday

Check out my hot lunch date!

Yum, Yum

He’s a hungry boy!

This works out really well, because I’m a hungry girl. We’re eaters… What can we say!?

Me 'n' My Lunch

I met up with Ryan for lunch at Jimmy John’s. Whenever I ask him if he wants to meet for lunch on one of his off-Fridays, I always ask where he wants to eat.

He then asks me why I ask him this question when he knows I only want to eat at Jimmy John’s. It’s true! I never get sick of it. It’s too darn delicious!

Today I ordered a roast beef unwich with provolone cheese… which they forgot.

Cheeseless Unwich

I was horrified!

How am I supposed to enjoy a sandwich without cheese???

Okay, okay, I must admit, it was still pretty stinkin’ tasty without the cheese.

To ease my infuriation with the lack of cheese on my sandwich and the wrong bread on Ryan’s sandwich, we decided to eat our emotions and enjoy a cup of frozen yogurt. 😉

I’ve been wanting to try Mochi, a new “frozen yogurt café” in downtown Orlando, for a couple of months now, so we walked a block or so to pick up a cuppa the good stuff.

When we got there, we were told the yogurt is “self serve” and you pay by the ounce ($.45/ounce). I LOVE self serve stations. This place was right up my alley!

After sampling every flavor (yes, every flavor), we settled on a swirl of the strawberry shortcake and coconilla flavors.

Mochi Frozen Yogurt

These flavors were slightly tart and extremely creamy and delicious.

We topped our yogurt with rainbow sprinkles (because we’re 5 years old), coconut, strawberries and extra whipped cream. (And yes, coloring the word “rainbow” in rainbow colors took entirely too long.)

The only thing that is not “self serve” at Mochi is the whipped cream. In my case, this is a good thing because I have an ongoing love affair with whipped cream.

You know the whipped cream machine they have at The Cheesecake Factory? Every time we go there, Ryan and I joke about how much I would pay to stick my head under that thing. I’m thinking $50. 😀

Ryan and I both left raving about Mochi. We may even be making a return trip this evening.

I love how you can control your portions and pay by the ounce. We paid $2.60 for our cup of frozen yogurt! Sweet deal, huh? You can’t get out of Marble Slab or Coldstone Creamery for under $5, so for frugal people like us, this place is a gem.

Do you prefer ice cream or frozen yogurt?

  1. i have never tried jimmy john’s but if you say it is THAT good, i think it is worth a shot. i am not picky about my frozen treats~ i like both!

  2. Hahaha my comment was going to ask you how long it took you to color the word rainbow. I love self serve fro yo so good. A Jimmy John’s was being built on my college campus my senior year, but didn’t open until after graduation so I never got to go. It was heartbreaking.

  3. goodness, i laugh out loud (literally) whenever i read your posts. i can TOTALLY see you putting your head under a whipped cream machine spitter outer.

  4. Mmmm, I *just* found a self-serve froyo place in downtown DC that I was immediately obsessed with!! this means I don’t have to pick just one topping – whoop! 😉 looks delicious

  5. I love self-serve Fro Yo! I usually get the tart or plain with fruit toppings, but I’m a sucker for anything blueberry, too. We have a new fro yo place just up the street and they seem to be popping up everywhere lately.

  6. I haven’t had Jimmy John’s in years! I used to live on it in college – so good! I’ve just been introduced to frozen yogurt and it is seriously like crack! My go-to combo is strawberries, coconut, and granola. Have a great weekend! 🙂

  7. i looove frozen yogurt so i dont feel so bad about it!! 😀 xxx

  8. Forget about sticking my head under the machine. How can I buy said whipped cream machine?!

  9. I like that about fro yo places to…cheap bc I never get that much. I like forzen yogurt MUCH better than ice cream…but Ive never been a big ice cream girl.

  10. I am a fro-yo FREAK! And literally there is a great shop right by house (about 1/2 a mile) so the hubs and I frequently walk over after dinner to enjoy a tasty treat!! 🙂

  11. aww you guys are super cute 🙂

  12. haha totally know that whipped cream machine and it woud be so so fun to work there, because well I would request to “watch over’ that station 🙂

    no cheese?!! ahh tahts the worst when they forget such an important ingredient! i once ordered delivery, a chicken wrap and they forgot the CHICKEN! how on a chicken wrap can you forget the chicken? that blew my mind!

    happy friday!

  13. That’s funny, my husband and I went to TCBY today for some frozen yogurt and we were also surprised that it was self-served. The toppings were 45 cents too. All the more to put a lot of stuff on it. 🙂

  14. I wish they had self serve fro yo down in miami! i can’t find it anywhere! I guess i’ll have to make a very special trip up to Orlando for that!

  15. Rainbow sprinkles are my absolute FAVORITE!! I love fat free ice cream but am also a fan of low-fat frozen yogurt! (with sprinkles, of course!) 😉

  16. yum! i so wish/ need to find a place like this in KC!

    i love Jimmy Johns.. they forgot my sprouts last time and I was so sad too!

  17. I love having lunch dates! We have a Jimmy Johns near work, so I think I will be trying one of the un-wiches next time!

    I’ll have to remember that frozen yogurt place the next time we’re in Orlando visiting the in-laws.

  18. […] trip to Mochi for some frozen yogurt in my near future… It’s becoming a bit of a Friday staple, I […]
