Haiku for Fro-Yo

Crazyberry promises Cap'n Crunch and, by damn, I want Cap'n Crunch.

A Haiku for Crazyberry

Cap'n Crunch, where are you?

Capitol Hill's newest addition to the what's-old-is-new-again frozen yogurt craze (and newest copycat of California's Pinkberry) offers three flavors: plain, green tea and strawberry (and as the worker bees there point out, most fro-yo places don't offer strawberry). The star attractions, of course, are the toppings, which sound pretty sweet (no pun intended). The menu boasts an extensive list of fresh fruit along with other toppers, including Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pebbles, Cap'n Crunch, chocolate chips and sliced almonds, among others. However, when I stopped by, there were no Cocoa Pebbles and no Cap'n Crunch, along with some other MIA ingredients listed on the menu board, which also lists smoothies as an option even though they won't roll out till next summer.

What I did order -- strawberry with Oreos (toppings are $1 for one, or $2 for three -- a bit hefty for a frozen yogurt that costs $2.50 for a small without any toppings included) -- was quite tasty but hollow. And I'm not speaking metaphorically. When I dug in my spoon, I was met with emptiness inside the yogurt. They fill the yogurt cup around the sides so there's a big gaping hole inside the yogurt mound, which they should consider filling with toppings since there's not much room for them around the side of the yogurt.
