Oh, the frozen yogurt bar. It’s so American. Endless choices, self-serve, plenty of seating. And at a deceptive 39 cents an ounce, it looks affordable. Until you load it up with all that good stuff and find yourself scarfing a $5 cup of goodness.

Since the recession, these have popped up like dandelions in the spring. It’s fun, seemingly affordable and great for all ages. Kyle and I went to the Peachwave in Leawood, right by the HyVee on Stateline Road.

Our Take:

Taste: 8

Presentation: It’s up to you!

Originality: 5

Service: 5

Appearance: 8

Value: 5

Restrooms: 5

Let’s break-it-down:

Taste: Everything is always neat and fresh, but it isn’t anything mind-blowing.

Presentation: At a place like this, the way your dish looks is up to you!

Originality: Ok, these places are everywhere. What you see is what you get.

Service: They are polite enough but also give off the “you interrupted my txt” look when they have to ring you up.

Appearance: Clean and tidy, yet a little too big for what they need. It is so big that it almost feels awkward. Needs carpet, too.

Value: With heavy toppings like brownie bites and large fruit, they can pile on quickly and add up your tab in no time.

Restroom: This space was an old Starbucks and they didn’t change the color scheme to match the rest of the building. It’s the details folks, the details.

Check it out for yourself! They are a national chain so find the location nearest you.
