Teaser, satisfying or nirvana what's your pick?
Make sure you have a friend around to pinch you really hard, as you step into this chill zone with bright greens and perky pinks and purples on the walls. For at this spanking new outlet, you might just get lost in an ice land.
The 1550 sqft store in Koramangala with a seating capacity of up to 40 people, was already bustling with a couple of foreigners, young men and a few kids when we dropped by.
Considering it's a new outlet, we think the answer to the packed tables lies in the many novel ways they serve the fro yos (frozen yoghurt).
My tart radar went zooming with the kiss of yummy berries that gave my taste buds just the tarty tang that I've been scouting for this summer at the newly opened Kiwi Kiss.
It probably takes one smart tart to get to know the other.
Known for their fro yos essentially, I was in for a treat when I found Parfait and Waffles on the menu too.
The Canadian chain of frozen yogurt is for those times when you crave to indulge your sweet tooth on a dessert or ice cream and on an afterthought settle for a healthier alternative.
The yogurts taste is akin to that of any ice cream, but the flavour, we were told, comes from its final stage of making, when the mixture is frozen in special soft-serve ice cream machine, which lends the yogurt the creamy texture of ice cream.
They have four fro yo variants original, mango, kiwi and strawberry in three different portions of small, medium or large, which they call teaser, satisfying and nirvana (Rs 49 to 149).
On the first bite, feel the low fat probiotic creamy yogurt melt in the mouth and send a chilled signal from your taste buds right down to your belly.
We recommend you find a cozy corner and ask for the tester cups of original, mango, kiwi and strawberry. Once you know what gives you the kicks, go for the Waffles (Rs 69 to 129).
They serve their waffles on a plate divided in four portions each with a different flavour original fro or any flavoured fro yo for one portion of the waffle with fruit options for your other three halves.
We picked the blackberry, blueberry and kiwi from the many options of strawberry, raspberry, peach, mixed fruit, pineapple, watermelon and muskmelon.
Ours arrived right on time, a treat to the eyes as well as to our taste buds, gleaming with a pick-me-up fresh and colourful touch.
It passed our taste test with flying colours. We noted, the temperature around us was already getting cooler and it was time we ordered a Parfait (Rs 149 for original and Rs 199 for flavoured fro yo version).
Parfait comes in a tall glass with layers of fro yo, 3 fruit toppings, with generous helpings of nuts of your choice. We went for pistachio, walnuts and almonds.
You can also try granola, muesli, cashew and butterscotch. The kids though might dig the raisins or choco chips.
Downside: If you have kids and like sweet pops and ice candies, yogurt might be a far cry, since it's not made of ice cream. Kids will love the choco chips and colourful sprinklers on top of their fro yos.
Advice: Especially for kids below 12, pick the fruit and nut toppings very carefully. The berries might be too tangy for them. They would like mango, chocochips and raisins.
