Frozen yogurt review: Peach Berry in Grand Prairie
Peach Berry is deserving of high marks due to novelty, cleanliness, convenience, and friendliness of employees.
Peach Berry frozen yogurt shop opened for business in May of 2010. They specialize in one area: self-serve frozen yogurt with dozens of topping choices. Marble Slab and Baskin-Robbins are the only other dessert-specific eateries in Grand Prairie.
The store is situated next door to Pizzaiolo's, in the Tom Thumb shopping center, at South Carrier Parkway and Westchester Parkway. There is both indoor and outdoor seating available. Outside, the tables and umbrellas match the clean, uncluttered decor of the interior. Inside, there are four frozen yogurt dispensers with three flavors at each. Serve yourself from left to right. Start with a bowl (one size fits all). Choose your flavor(s). Add fresh fruit, candy, nuts, cereal, or all of the above. Then, put your creation on the scale. The price is $0.39* per ounce (*at time of review).
The bowl size is large enough that you can easily feed two adults and a small child from just one. If you are the type who likes to eat the dishes, crispy waffle bowls are also available. Bottled drinks are for sale next to the cashier.
How does it taste? Fruity flavors taste more yogurty than some others, like the cookie dough for instance. Most flavors are non-fat, though they are smooth and creamy. The plethora of toppings, including peaches and berries, will make you stop and think. But don't pause too long, because that yogurt is a-melting. If you want the sugary breakfast effect, go for the vanilla yogurt and add Cocoa Krispees. The staff at Peach Berry will suggest not piling up the toppings on your first visit. This is a good warning. Ask for samples if you're not sure you'll like the combination you've thought of.
A 20-percent-off coupon is available in the Ad Pages (yeah, you know the one you shouldn't have thrown away with the junk mail), or after free sign-up at AdPages.com ... here.
Peach Berry is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. This makes it the ideal after-dinner or post-movie stop.
Overall, this store is deserving of high marks due to novelty, cleanliness, convenience, and friendliness of employees. On your next visit, make sure to mention that you heard of them from the Grand Prairie Restaurant Examiner at Examiner.com. You won't get anything for it, but they will know where some of their business is coming from.
