BENGALURU: Turn into a mix master and whip up your own dessert with over 150 flavours of frozen yogurts, your choice of toppings and sauces at Menchies in Indiranagar.
You also need not feel guilty of having them as they are low fat and hence healthy. Each flavour of yogurt at this international brand is said to be made with cow’s milk, treated naturally with strains of probiotic cultures.
Once you pick your flavours, you move to the next section of toppings with more than 30 choices. Next, are the sauces that you can add to your yoghurt. There are chocolate, caramel sauces and also nutella, if you’d like some.
As a pure chocolate lover, I tried several chocolate flavours like chocolate cake, cookies and cream, chocolate cookie and topped them with oats granula, choco chips and dry grapes. To top it all, I tried some chocolate sauce as well. Unlike the usual chocolate ice creams which are heavy and filling, the frozen yogurt was very light and delicate. It tasted just like ice creams. You could barely tell any difference. It is indeed a good and healthier option than ice creams.
There are even options for diabetics and also those who may be lactose intolerant. While the former can try the sugar free coffee flavour, the sorbets could be a good option for the latter. The flavours at the store are changed every week so that customers get to try something new every time.
When you make your own frozen ice cream, do not forget to add Boba. These are chewy little transparent balls that pop in your mouth. If you are trying it for the first time, it can be a pleasant surprise. It may seem weird at first but it’s fun and will bring back the memories from your childhood. Remember one of your favourite candies during school days - the Magic Pops!
While you enjoy your frozen yogurt, you can also play some games at the store and engage in other activities. Test your skills at darting on a dart board or enjoy live music performances hosted by the store on certain weekends.
Despite the high quality, an experience at Menchei’s is light on the pocket. Primarily due to the store’s ‘mix, weigh and pay’ concept. It costs just `1 per gram and allows one to control their expenditure.
