Self-Serve Fro Yo from Yogurt on the Rocks

One of my favorite dessert options in San Diego are self-serve frozen yogurt shops. Before I moved to San Diego, my only experience with frozen yogurt was at Yogen Fruz, which is totally different than places like Yogurt on the Rocks, where you can design a custom-made cup of frozen yogurt, then top it with as many different items as you want.

Self-serve frozen yogurt shops are abundant in San Diego, but Yogurt on the Rocks in Pacific Beach is one of the better options. The shop has free wi-fi, outdoor seating, and an excellent list of rotating flavors, including cake batter, peanut butter, raspberry cheesecake, and my personal favorite: Pacific Beach berry, which tastes like a mix of blueberry, raspberry, and pomegranate. It’s got the perfect balance of sweet with a touch of tart, and makes a great base for a fruity toppings like mango, strawberries, and blueberries. Best of all, you can get a free sample cup and test-drive the flavors before you commit.

Topping options include healthy choices like fresh fruit and nuts, plus more decadent options like brownie bits, crushed cookies, and candy pieces. Yogurt on the Rocks also has an excellent selection of sauces, including tropical fruit flavors and dessert sauces like hot fudge and caramel, which allow you to create a sundae-style bowl of frozen yogurt.

The bang you get for your buck is excellent at Yogurt on the Rocks. Unlike Pinkberry, you can really get creative because there’s no limit on the amount of different flavors and toppings you put into your bowl, and because the finished product is priced by the ounce, you can control exactly how much yogurt you want…which is great if you want to indulge responsibly (but let’s face it, it’s hard to pass by those brownie bits!)
