verdict: tasty, try it!
orange cream-yo. another good addition to the the massive burst of froyo shops in this frozen yogurt crazed day and age. the formula is all the same right? name your shop after a fruit (red mango, pinkberry, cantaloop, etc...), have a ton of fruity toppings to select from, and have an "original" flavor froyo that tastes tart. the more tart the better!! and conversely, probably the ONLY time being tart is a good thing, but i digress. the decor inside stays true to the froyo shop formula too. lots of plastic furnitures and pops of color. the space is small though so sitting there and eating isn't exactly ideal. i suggest you get your order and then take a walk around echo park. lots of things in this hood for you to enjoy.
my first experience with orange cream was a good one. it's located on the corner of sunset and alvarado which makes it a convienent pit stop for me. after making an illegal turn and screeching my car into their parking lot, i got a regular sized, original flavor froyo with mango, strawberries, and blackberries. at first, the yogurt tasted funny to me, but about the third spoonful, the addiction settled in and i really, really dug it! there is this nutty creamy taste to it. hard to describe except that i plan to go back soon...er, you know, to figure out how to articulate this taste a bit better.
the employees are nice and they didn't make a big ole froyo hole in my order. thanks!
