Although freezing the yogurt trees remains a difficult task for winter botanists, few would argue that the dividends aren't worthwhile. Today's Groupon happily marries the realms of science and yogurt farming. For $6, you get $12 worth of healthy frozen snacking at Berrywild. With two locations, on 3rd Avenue in Murray Hill and on the Upper East Side, Berrywild turns chilly yogurts into a smooth foundation for helpings of fresh, seasonal fruit and precisely curved spoons. This deal also is valid toward tax.
Berrywild urges the sweet tooth to shed its shame and embrace a deliciously fatless dessert option. A menu of nonfat frozen yogurts stretches out over an artistically modern and intimate space, where healthy dessertists congregate over yummy fare. Fro-yo is served up in one of two special textures for discerning palates: berry smooth keeps the mouth properly coddled with its creamy agenda while kinda icy varieties instill subtle jags of frozen wonder for feisty teeth that enjoy a good frigid chomp. Though flavors may vary by season, taste buds can delight in the signature tanginess of plain frozen yogurt and the distinct flavors of Caribbean coffee, banana, passion fruit, and pomegranate offerings.
Sizes run from small to medium to large ($2.95/$3.95/$5.95; add $0.75 for pomegranate and passion fruit) before the adornment of naturally juicy toppings. Dress a cup of yogurt with the colorful likes of strawberries, blueberries, mango, kiwi, pineapple, blackberries, and more ($0.95 each). The most adventurous of yogis can opt for a three-topping wild-thing combination served as a medium or a large ($5.50/$7.75) for less-common yogurt cravings.
- If you’re curious which of the proliferating fro-yo parlors we like best, we would have to pick Berrywild in Murray Hill, where the Caribbean Coffee and the Berry Smooth plain are not only creamy and delicious, but, according to the rabbinical document posted by the toppings display, certified kosher. – Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld, New York magazine
