What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Brain Freeze
Tastier than frozen water and healthier than frozen butter, frozen yogurt is poised to capture the heart of a nation and storm the airwaves of celebrity blogs. With today's deal, $5 gets you $10 worth of chilly, tarty frozen yogurt at Mr. Yogato, the Fells Point slinger of concupiscent curds. This colorful parlor of non-fat treats allows you to enjoy your creamy dessert as you did in childhood: free from weighty worries and calmed by a steadfast belief in unicorns. Though Mr. Yogato regularly awards foolish behavior with discounts, today's deal gets you a better discount without having to embarrass your date.
Offering games and free WiFi, this fro-yo shop is a fun and sweet hangout for area teetotalers or a refreshing stop on your company pub-crawl. Mr. Yogato offers two original flavors of yogurt (tangy and creamy) all the time, plus two flavors of the month and more than 35 toppings, from fresh fruit to Fruity Pebbles. This month's featured flavors are double chocolate and mango. Yogurt ranges from $3–$5, and toppings are $1 for one, $1.75 for two, and $2.25 for three, though some, including chocolate syrup and balsamic vinaigrette, are on the house. Top your original creamy with a pile of Lucky Charms, brownies, and kiwi, or mix up your tang with copious chocolate chips and a drizzle of complimentary olive oil.
Frozen yogurt is a healthy alternative to ice cream and full-on frozen lard. Mr. Yogato uses natural fruit sugar, just like monkeys eat, and in addition to containing no fat, it is packed with lactobacillus bifidus, a friendly bacteria that aids digestion. Because of fro-yo's natural bacteria, many lactose-intolerant people can indulge without regret, even on first dates. In addition to the health benefits, frozen yogurt stands up to room temperature better than ice cream, so slow eaters can savor every frozen bite.
Critics are talking with their mouths full of the decadent, guilt-free delights, and Yelpers give Mr. Yogato four stars:
- A fun, brightly colored dining area, an outrageously adorable mascot, a super sweet staff, the unassailable ability to get a Styx song stuck in your head, and most importantly frozen yogurt that actually tastes good. – Anna Ditkoff, Baltimore City Paper
- ...if you've dreamed of hybrid desserts suited to the cravings of stoners and pregnant women, you'll end lazy afternoons in Fells with a medium strawberry, topped with crumbled peanut butter cups, Cap'n Crunch and slices of fresh-cut banana. – Jessica Novak, Metromix
- i was really surprised that they LOAD ON the toppings here. i was having trouble eating it without having stuff spill out - GOOD SIGN. – Denise F., Yelp
The phenomenon known as the ice-cream headache or “brain freeze” is still considered very mysterious by scientists, although what we have learned from it tells us much about the human mind. For one thing, brain freezes only occur in people with above-average intelligence, who also carry the rare “rad” gene, which manifests in recessive awesomeness traits in everything from embroidery to snowboardery.
A brain freeze usually occurs when a food item of subzero temperature (ice-cream cone, frozen hot dog, etc.) is consumed rapidly, due to extreme deliciousness or an equally extreme desire to enter the movie theater quickly so as not to miss the trailer for Iron Man Too: 2 Iron Men.
These days, brain freezes are actually actively sought by culinary daredevils, or zealous “experiencers,” who gobble up the frostiest of treats in hope of communing with a familiar tingly-head feeling that some believe actually stems from a higher-dimensional source of vast power and intelligence known only as the PermaFrost.
