Spring is 20 days away. That can mean only two things:
- Winter is almost (finally) over
- It’s time to stop thinking about frozen sidewalks, and start thinking about frozen treats
Unless you never stopped thinking about frozen treats. (And if that’s the case, please add this to the list of reasons why I like you.)
I’ve just about reached my limit of frozen temperatures, but frozen treats? Never. So I was excited to have the opportunity to try Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls, an innovative collaboration between Stonyfield and Cambridge-based WikiFoods.
Was it love at first bite? Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to think at first. Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls are like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. Each bite of organic frozen nonfat yogurt comes in an edible, washable wrapper made of organic fruit skin.
These edible wrappers were developed by Professor David Edwards and his team at WikiFoods and were named one of TIME’s 25 Best Inventions of 2014. They’re a huge step towards reaching Stonyfield CEO Gary Hirshberg’s dream of eliminating waste and creating the “edible cup.”
I had the chance to meet Professor Edwards at Cafe ArtScience in Cambridge earlier this week, and the more I learned about (and… let’s be serious, the more I tasted) Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls, the more I found to love about these delightful treats.
Yes. I said delightful. Much of what I eat is routine, ordinary, even boring. So when I find myself eating something that feels entirely new and different, and even thought provoking — that’s a delightful shakeup. Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls are fun to eat and they’re fun to share.
They’re kid-friendly. Grace doesn’t eat many (or really, any) sweets, but I gave her a taste of a peach and vanilla pearl the other day and she loved it. The edible wrapper was easy for her to hold (she wants to do everything herself these days) and less messy than a regular scoop of frozen yogurt (I imagine… I’m not quite ready to give that a try). Plus, I love watching her try new flavors, textures and temperatures. I bet these would be a big hit with older kids.
I can’t be the only one who has sat down to enjoy a bit of frozen yogurt, only to find myself minutes later wondering where the rest of the pint went. Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls are currently sold in single-serve packages (one serving is two pearls and totals 40 calories). In other words: built-in portion control. The packaging itself is made from 100% renewable sugarcane.
And they’re, well… pretty. These pearls look as good as they taste, and make a wonderful presentation whether served whole, sliced… or kabob’d (I am pretty sure I came up with that idea in my sleep and had to make it happen). From backyard cookouts to elegant dinner parties, I have a feeling Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls would be a hit at any gathering.
If you would like to try these deliciously exquisite treats for yourself, please feel free to use the coupon below. Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls are currently available in Whole Foods Market stores in the North Atlantic.
I recommend you treat yo’self to one of each flavor.
