Frozen yogurt on the cheap and $5 “Whoopie bucks”

If you’re watching your waistline, you might as well move on to the next blog, because…

From the Redlands Daily Facts, we’ve got good news for your sweet tooth.

Ohana Yogurt Shop will be celebrating its third anniversary from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 18. They will have music, giveaways, and best of all, their yogurt will be 25 per ounce instead of the usual 38.

Ohana is a pretty decent self-serve frozen yogurt place and is conveniently open late during the summer to satisfy those after-the-Redlands-Bowl-concert cravings. I’ll probably head on over to the celebration.

They’ve got new competition, however.

The previously-mentioned Swirly D’lite frozen yogurt opened April 2. I drove by the other night, but they were already closed. Ended up going to Wienerschnitzel and trying their Bananas Foster sundae. Mmm! Swirly D’lite will have to wait for another day.

Finally, if you’ve ever wanted to try a Whoopie pie, now’s your chance. The Daily Facts has been printing $5 in “Whoopie bucks” in Wednesday’s, Thursday’s and Friday’s editions. The coupon is good for anything at West Coast Whoopies‘ Calimesa bakery. The “bucks” are good through the month of April.

I’ve been meaning to get out there to try them, and the “Cheryl’s Snickerdoodle” and “Aunty Anne’s Red Velvet” varieties have certainly piqued my interest. This is just more incentive — like I needed it.

    hmm..”Whoopies” look good…what are they? Went to the website but naturally, my cable internet is so choppy that the site won’t load.

    Michelle:

    Whoopie pies, as they’ve been described to me, are like the tops of two cupcakes with a creamy sweet filling between them. Yum! I’ve been told that West Coast Whoopies are delicious. I’ve heard they’re the only bakery west of the Mississippi that sells whoopie pies, and they’re right here in the Inland Empire! Aren’t we lucky? Next time your Internet connection picks up, be sure to look at their blog…and the Coach purse cake they created. It’s a masterpiece!
