I stumbled upon this Coldstone-esque frozen yogurt shop back in 200? (yeah that's a question mark). It was one of those places that was packed every night, rain or shine. So I decided to check it out one day when it wasn't so crowded. I came out fairly disappointed. I got the smallest size they had at the time (which seemed maybe a few times bigger than a sample cup) with one mix in, and it came out to $3 and some change. It was totally not worth it to me, because it didn't even taste all that fruitastic. I never went back...

Until today. I was on my way to Starbucks to get a pastry and maybe an iced soy caramelly machilatto with 1 pump caramel and 2 pumps carmel or some other crazy. But as I was walking by 21 Choices, I suddenly got this huge craving for ice cream/frozen yogurt, so I decided to give it another shot. It was my lucky day, because nobody was in there. Then this Asian family followed me in and I thought it was gonna get out of control. This little girl pushed me as I was taking a sample! When they found out there was no ice cream and only frozen yogurt, they fled. Anyway, I digress...

They had 6 flavors of the day, but I only remember 4: Vanilla Bean, Original Yogurt, Peach and Guava, and Chocolate. You choose one or two flavors, then they have many toppings/mix-ins to choose from, just like Coldstone. They ask you if you want it on top or mixed in. Some people like this, but I prefer those self-serve frozen yogurt shops where you can do it yourself and add as many different kinds as you want.

The smallest size actually got bigger, and it was only $4.21. That seems like a lot, but many places are like this nowadays, so I think I'm used to it now. The yogurt was still just ok... but I have to give a shout out to Victoria. She was super nice, super cool, and really engaged with me. Because of her, this place gets a +3 instead of a +2. I even told her I'd give her a good review online. You go Glen Coco!

Mmmmm, those flavors sound so good, especially the peach and guava one.  You're making me crave frozen treats!  Thank goodness I have some of this in my freezer :)

I've been here and it was way to crowded. The people there were really OVER THE TOP nice. I remeber thinking it was some kind of cult. haha

no, i'm one of those people who feels bad trying a bunch of samples even though they tell me I can try as many as I want... lol... so I just tried the peachy guava... i'm not a big chocolate ice cream/frozen yogurt fan

There was a day when 21 Choices was relatively unknown and they weren't as expensive as the other guys. Now, they've come up on the scene and have raised their prices. It makes me sad, because I'm a total sweets addict and this is going to cost me more money. :-( Good review, though!

Okay, I have to give a shoutout to your sentence of a Starbucks order. It's like my friend who use to order a "Grande iced white chocolate mocha with soy milk and no whip." Annnnddd, your YOU GO GLEN COCO! hahaha! Oh and chocolate yogurt? Did you try that? I'm curious....
