Yumz: The new Dairy Queen in so many ways

 “Oh yes, I already like it here.”

The inviting and chic atmosphere of the place is unlike any other ice cream shop or even Starbucks. The walls are bubbly, bright and decorated to match the cute tables and chairs and even fancy couch. But once you reach the yogurt and toppings station, you go into a frenzy.

The great thing about Yumz is its serve-it-yourself yogurt and topping stations that make you giddy with excitement with its variety. It’s a free-for-all of different choices of yogurt flavors. Pull the lever and there you have it. Delicious yogurt that comes in many different flavors such as peanut butter, cookies and cream, red velvet cake, and my personal favorite, cake batter.

It tastes just like ice cream, but it’s not. Though not a huge step-down in calories, yogurt is healthier than ice cream.

Once you pick your yogurt of choice, there is a variety of toppings to choose from. The selection starts with different candies then to chocolate and nuts. At the end of the line you can top it off with syrup and whip cream.

Mix and match how you want, because they charge you by weight. This is why Yumz is so popular, because it is inexpensive.

Whatever you choose when you go to Yumz, it’s still heaven on earth. It is an amazing place that will satisfy and dazzle you, and keep you coming back for more. It is different, and that is why it is so loved, people get tired of the same old thing.

So fill up your cups, pile on the toppings, and enjoy.

You will never have ordinary ice cream again.
