Orange is tasty.

We have a new frozen yogurt shop in our neighborhood called OrangeCup. It's one of those places that is suddenly "on the way" to wherever we happen to be going (i.e., "Why don't we stop by OrangeCup for some yogurt? It's on the way..."). Dots took my mom there on her recent visit, and I think we ended up returning three times in the five days my mom was here!

Dots and her friends try some samples before ordering

The shop sells three flavors of frozen yogurt: natural (plain but with a pleasant taste, not overly sour like plain yogurt), züm (similar to natural with an orange kick - this is my favorite) and açaiberry. There are lots of toppings to add to your yogurt if you so desire. After you place an order, the server prints a label for your cup with all of the nutritional information for your size and flavor of yogurt and toppings.

Dots selected züm with Fruity Pebbles, her friend chose açaiberry with kiwi and I enjoyed züm with strawberries

Vivian loves OrangeCup!

I think that right now OrangeCup only has locations in Dallas. But it's a very stylish concept with a great product, so hopefully it will catch on in your area soon too!

I LOVE Orange Cup! I had it for dinner last night before class at SMU. I always go to the one in Northpark but I may try the new location out.Thanks for the heads up. Dots & Vivian looks so sweet!

I haven't heard of it yet but next time we are in the Dallas area we will see if we can find one. Looks like a neat place!

Everything about that place sounds divine. And the look on Vivian's face? Says it ALL.

Have you tried I Heart Yogurt?! I am OBSESSED! It is at Preston and Royal and they are opening a new location in Inwood Village this month. They have 10 flavors and it is self serve and then there are 30+ toppings you can add on. Simply amazing! Tickled Pink and Green and I can never get enough!

sounds good. I wonder when they will start opening them in my area?

I love Orange Cup! My favorite is natural with strawberry and dark chocolate chips! YUM!

Y'all look so cute! (I like to use "y'all" in honor of the 4 years I spent in New Orleans... I do feel entitled! ;) I think that Orange Cup might be dangerous for me right now... I seem to have NO restraint when it comes to treats!

Yummy! I hope I can try it this summer when I'm home. I heard ya'll are getting Pinkberry too! Dallas is the best!

Looks delicious! Thanks for the birthday wishes! Vacation was great and now back to reality. As far as the books I brought, I read Ian McEwan's (author of "Atonement")"Amsterdam." Good read and I finished it before the week was up. I'm now onto Penny Vincenzi's "An Absolute Scandal." She's a British author - nothing deep, but a fun read just the same. Hope you're having a great summer!
