We were in need of some serious refreshment after getting lost on a hike last week.  Hot, sweaty, and ever-so-slightly irritable, we were searching for something cold and delicious.  YoLo was there for us.

YoLo, located on Merrimon Ave., is a self-serve frozen yogurt and dessert shop.  They use fresh local ingredients and provide loads of options, so you’ll be sure to find something you love.  In addition to frozen yogurt, Yolo serves shaved ice, sorbet, ice cream and more.

YoLo’s interior is so bright and fun.  We started feeling rejuvenated almost immediately.  The walls are covered in eye candy, such as cheery paintings, shimmery tile, chalkboard sketches and a community bulletin board.

You can sit at tables and booths indoors…they also have a covered patio if you feel like eating al fresco.  We were still feeling overheated and a bit salty, so indoors it would be.

YoLo has lots of flavors on constant rotation.  The shaved ice in particular has about a million choices, and you can mix ‘n match!

We both agree that the toppings are the very best part of the YoLo experience.  The fruit is local and delicious, and everything was perfectly ripe and in-season.  We, however, had just hiked a few miles and said a big NO THANKS to being healthy, instead opting for sugary selections.  You’ll find just about every gummy, hard candy, chocolate, and cereal from your childhood.

Price is calculated by weight, so try and control yourself (it ain’t easy).

Chelsea chose the Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet (which also happened to be vegan).  She smothered it mini cheesecake bites (amaaaazing), Reese’s Pieces, and slivered almonds

Mattie went for the Cinnabun flavor, which she topped with cheesecake bites and eggless chocolate-covered cookie dough bites.
