7/16/12 - Munchin' at Menchies~!

Y'know, there's rarely a time I go to a place and just love it up so much that I can't shut the hell up about it.

One of those places is Menchies.

Now, I don't know what it's like out in Seattle, but Menchies here in Bellingham?  Dude, Fro Yo done RIGHT!  Now, perhaps yer just not into frozen yogurt, and that's cool.  Or maybe yer lactose intolerant and all you CAN have is frozen yogurt.

That's cool too, y'know?

Suffice it to say, Menchies can and will happily scratch that itch you've been craving, even when you're not expecting it, y'knowwhatImean?  With toppings aplenty and OH TRUST ME these toppings ARE aplenty, you'll never see the same two mixes in a single outing.  They got your usuals, split between fruit and candies but then things get reaaaaally interesting.  Sure they got yer rainbow chocolate sprinkles and bananas and maraschino cherries, but they also have rainbow mochi bites, those tiny mint chocolate drops, lychee, freakin' captain' crunch berries, I mean...there's just quite a few 'unique' toppings you'll find here.

And then there's the yogurt.  Oh god, oh god, red velvet cake yogurt.

Fuck you, it was SOOOO FREAKIN' DERISHUUUUUUS!  This time around though, I went straight for the vanilla and mint.  Like any good yogurt shop, they let you combine flavors as a matter of rote, y'know?  Like it's actually built into the machine or some such.  It's just honestly good stuff, and y'never know when you just NEED some Menchies.

And oh god, cookie dough bites, cheescake bites, fudge brownie bites, crushed andies mints, crushed grasshopper mints, rainbow sparkles, blueberries...because fuck yeah, that's why.

They have a rechargable card system that works like stamps, where you build up points towards free yogurt or discounts, or Menchies swag.  Lately they've also begun giving away free "infinity flip cards," that are so....just so fuckin'....

Okay, I'm an easily entertained gent, alright?  This shit is amazing.  I literally sat there for five minutes just flipping this thing and laughing like a moron.

Y'know what's the best part?  I keep hearing that the one in Seattle has, like, a WALL of toppings.  Yeah, the MOMENT I dig on that you guys'll get an update. :D  Like Willy Wonka style.  Not the creepy boat ride one, but the one where they just entered his candy kingdom and he's singing World of Imagination.

On a final note, you can keep the spoon if you want...and booooy do I~!  I've got two thus far, and it's not like they have other spoons but I find that just looking at it can evoke happy memories, y'know?  Plus you never know when you need a spoon this size, it's just...fuckin' perfect.  Look, stop looking at me like that, these spoons are cool I tell you!  Plus they're green, one of my favorite colors. :D

Ugh.  Fuck the dumb shit, it's Tacks Made Of Brass Tiem!

PROS: I am happy.  I am so fucking happy with this place.  No problems whatsoever. :D  Even the decor is bright and yogurtly inviting.  Yes I typed yogurtly, what, you wanna fight about it?

CONS: The strange melancholy that comes upon one when they realize they just ate all the Menchies you had in the cup, then the further melancholy you get when you honestly think to yourself that it might be worth it to get more.  Seriously, it's not like they're expensive-expensive...they weigh something like 40 cents to the ounce.  But considering that you're probably gonna pile on the toppings, and that's after getting the maximum amount of yogurt that you want after your favorite flavor or combination of flavors...yeaaaah.  Did I mention they have quite a variety of flavors that change around hither and thither?

Fuckin' awesome.

...so yeah, no cons. :D

VERDICT: I KEEP THROWING MY MONEY AT THE SCREEN AND IT DOES NOTHING.  OH GOD, I HAVE TO GO THERE TO GET THE MENCHIES?  GAH, CATCH YOU GUYS LATER, I NEED TO GO TO MENCHIES AND GET SOME MENCHIE.

Rageometer: How negative can I get with this thing?  1 out of 10.  Just not even mad at all, I am as completely opposite the day after as I can ever be at a place.  Hell, when I had me some of this delicious I suddenly got energized and zipped around town handlin' shit...which is cool since there were several festivals to take in that were all going down yesterday, plus the museums.

Awesome.

PIC Rageometer: >BROKEN<

P.S. - Dude, they also let you taste for free!  DID YOU HEAR ME?!  LIKE, ALL THE YOGURTS.

AND THEY'RE AWESOME!

P.P.S. - Just a heads up, it's not a con...but from time to time, depending on time and day, the line at Menchis stretches out like it's a freakin' red carpet party.  Seriously, you gotta eyeball the place and make sure you get in during a time where there isn't a lot of families, kids, or after-work blue-collar stiffs getting a fro-yo fix.  Lunchtime midday, I'd say, or early in the day but not so early they're not even open yet, y'knowwhatImean?

G'wan down, check it out~!

  3. Menchies would be a welcome addition here, but they'll probably just install another wolf-n-crap.
