The interior of the shop, which is situated on that little triangle where Gray’s Ferry, 23rd and South streets meet, is ultra modern with giant flat screen menu boards and faux igloo-style ice blocks encasing the frozen yogurt. There are also Italian sorbet taps and gumball machine-esque topping dispensers on the wall.
The froyo here is serious business. The Igloo is the only shop in town spinning nonfat Fage Greek yogurt, only 100 calories per serving for an incredible guilt-free snack. Toppings are a big part of any froyo joint and The Igloo doesn’t disappoint. The honey and granola was perfect atop the Greek, but the Peanut Butter Croco (crispy rice folded into peanut butter, available in chocolate as well) was also a big winner.
Outdoor seating is coming this summer, and it will be air conditioned by some ingenious ventilation under the awnings.
The Igloo has been quietly open for the past few weeks, but they’re throwing a grand ppening party this weekend, Saturday March 23 from noon to 4 p.m. Lots of stuff planned: SOSNA will be turning on the Catharine Thorne fountain for the season, face painting for the kids, raffles for the adults, and most importantly FREE FROYO!
Stop over for dessert and welcome the Igloo team to the neighborhood.
