Every now & then I like to take my daughter to get frozen yogurt as an after-school treat. Usually I pair her favorite flavor with fresh fruit, like strawberries or bananas. There is a Menchie’s frozen yogurt store near her school, which is a convenient after school hang-out for a lot of her friends & their moms. We love the friendly neighborhood feel of the store, the chalkboard wall where kids can draw & color on it, the kid-friendly games that they have piled on a table in a corner & the endless supply of crayons & coloring paper with the Menchie’s mascot printed on it. We love Menchie’s so much that 3 years ago, we held my daughter’s 5th birthday party here!
So when I heard that Cinnabon was partnering with Menchie’s to create an exclusive frozen yogurt, I jumped at the chance to sample it! I mean, who doesn’t love a warm, ooey gooey Cinnabon cinnamon roll? To have that taste paired with a frozen yogurt treat sounds ingenious! It may be chilly Fall weather in other parts of the country, but here in LA it is always froyo weather!
Last week I visited the Menchie’s in Encino for a tasting. I happily loaded up my yogurt cup with Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll frozen yogurt, topped it with Cinnabon Morsels (which taste like cinnamon cookie dough bites) & drizzled cream cheese frosting on top. Delish!
Adding to the fun of eating this yummy froyo was getting to do a taste comparison with the real thing – fresh, warm Cinnabon rolls!
I have to say that this pairing of treats was pretty sweet!! I’m looking forward to taking my kiddo to try it. Although I try to keep her sweet treats to a minimum, every once in a while I make exceptions for very special treats, like this one!
The Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll flavor is being offered for a limited time at Menchie’s. It debuted on November 1st & will be in stores until November 30th. Trust me, you’ll want to hurry to your closest Menchie’s & try this delicious flavor before it’s gone!
Check out the Menchie’s website to get store location info & remember to “like” them on Facebook so that you can get their latest updates!

YAY! Menchie’s is one of my favorites. And you so had me at pumpable cream cheese icing…. Well, actually you had me at “froyo” and then “cinnabon” but who’s counting 😉
