Exploring Milwaukee: Yo Factory

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YZvsV0gGdwA/T8jxOwuhWoI/AAAAAAAAAQo/g_8yrotM9-8/s1600/389222_273602449404335_824165293_n.jpgThis month I wanted to highlight a personal favorite that I was introduced to last year. Yo Factory aka Fro Yo is a amazing little place down on N. Farwell ave. not to far from Kenilworth apartments. I found it to be a great place to go to and get away from campus for a bit and to enjoy some frozen yogurt that taste a lot like ice cream. Not only is it great, but its also a healthier treat for all of you sweet toothed residents. Being apart of the Helping Hands in Healthcare LLC I found it interesting when I went into Yo Factory that they had facts on why frozen yogurt was much healthier for you and what it can do for your health in the long run. So how does the place work? First, you start with adding a flavor of frozen yogurt of your choice to a bowl. Next you make your way around a toppings bar of maybe 20 items from fruits to candy treats. Finally, your total is based off the weight of your bowl. At .45 cents an oz its quite the steal.

Their hours are, Mon-Sat 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Sun 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and they are located at 2203 N. Farwell Ave. The easiest way to get there in my opinion would be to take the shuttle to Kenilworth and from there walk to Fro Yo just down the street.
