Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt Hits Charlotte

There’s a new froyo in town, Charlotte friends!

In fact, readers all around may have heard of our latest frozen yogurt joint – Menchie’s! Menchie’s actually has locations in almost every state and even some internationally. Do you have a location near you?

The first North Carolina store opened up recently right in Charlotte. I decided to scope it out after my trip to the Food Truck Rally.

The inside is colorful and well-organized.

They have a lot of the usual suspects froyo-flavor-wise, like tart.

But, they also have some unique flavors:

  • Strawberry Banana (as in the two flavors in one froyo handle)
  • Red Velvet
  • Dulce de Leche

I’d read (and drooled) about Red Velvet on other bloggers’ posts, but they all lived in other states. I was glad to see the flavor finally hitting my town. Red Velvet is one of my favorite types of cake! :) I’m happy to report that it is very tasty in froyo form.

Menchie’s also has waffle cones, which I haven’t seen at most (any?) froyo spots.

They had a wide assortment of self-serve toppings.

The even had my personal fave – mochi! Everything was so nice and neat.

I appreciated how clean the toppings bar looked. I went to another froyo place (that shall remain anonymous) one time that had a really cool concept and the most toppings I’ve ever seen. But the toppings area was so gross – toppings spilled everywhere and smeared on the countertops, toppings mixed together – I couldn’t really enjoy the experience…or the froyo. Ever since then, I’ve really started paying attention to the cleanliness of the toppings bar.

Menchie’s had a few liquid toppings, too.

Check out their super-cute spoon. It says, “This is my mix.”

I enjoyed my froyo on Menchie’s pretty patio.

It was the perfect way to end the day and soak up the last rays of the gorgeous sunlight.

All in all, Menchie’s was a great froyo spot. I thought the froyo was really tasty and nice & creamy. Also, I thought the experience factor was top-notch, too.

What’s most important to you in a froyo/ice cream store? Flavors? Toppings? Mixins? Customer Service? Location?
