I’m not sure if I’m going to get hate mail for this but I want to put it out there – froyo > ice cream. Cue the screams. Seriously though, I love ice cream and all, but the joy I get from pulling a lever and filling my never-big-enough cup of frozen yoghurt and then eagerly scooping a variety of amazing fruits, nuts and sugary treats on top, will never be greater than eating an ice cream cone. Maybe it’s the fact that I am taking part in the creation of something awesome and therefore my ego is stroked every time I create a winning combination of froyo goodness. Mostly it’s just that it tastes damn good because it’s definitely not the fact that it’s a healthier option (let’s stop kidding ourselves, shall we).
Before Cow & Co I must admit my love for froyo was weak. I had tried Fruizberry in Glenelg which I thought was good but the fact is, I didn’t know what was really good until I had had GOOD. Cow & Co is my new standard for froyo. Located in the heart of Adelaide, on King William Street, Cow & Co is a small self-serve frozen yoghurt store as well as a cafe which serves up a bunch of organic and gluten free treats. The main attraction is the froyo of course, with six flavours on offer which change daily including coconut, hazelnut, taro and good ol’ original which is my personal favourite. Once your cup is filled with your yoghurt of choice, you can head over to the tables of toppings where you will find a range of fresh fruits and other things that you wouldn’t find at your stock standard froyo shop. Things like organic buckinis, shaved coconut, almonds, mochis and poppers are some of my favourites on offer. Their selection is definitely the best I’ve seen in adelaide.
The only downside to this place is that it is way too easy to go OTT with the yoghurt and toppings, making it pretty expensive compared to ice cream. My creations have ranged in price from $6-8 because I like to go crazy when I’m there! But it’s worth it because it tastes so good. Compared to other frozen yoghurts in adelaide, this stuff is so much better, it doesn’t melt in 30 seconds and the range of flavours and toppings is next to none. Pop in when you’re in town next, you won’t regret it!
