So you didn't manage a vacation (or even a staycation) this summer? Try a taste of this froyo café's pineapple and coconut flavor. As you take your first spoonful, you're transported (mentally, at least) to a palm-fringed island--Antigua, perchance--the water lapping at your toes. You can almost hear the steel band in the background.
Admittedly, you do have to close your eyes and ears and ignore the heavy traffic just outside at the intersection of Bristol and Sunflower, but for just a few wonderful seconds you're lost.
And unlike virtually all other frozen yogurt flavors, this one actually tastes of what it's meant to (I swear, does every froyo joint get its flavors and toppings piped in from the same place? I can't tell the difference between any of them, nice as they generally are.)
Just one tip: Don't bother with garnishings, and don't get greedy and deposit too much in your cup. As with most good things in life, less is more. After a while it will get too sickly--much like those cocktails you could be sipping on the beach.
