Recently, I posted about a frozen yoghurt place called Menchie’s in Durham, NC. It wasn’t all that bad, but not great either. I figured that there had to be some better places for the delectable treat in the area, so I went out looking for a new spot. That’s when I stumbled upon a brand new premium frozen yoghurt stop called Graffiti. A word of advice is that, at the time of writing, the site is under construction and the colour/pattern combinations against the logo background may be a little much for you to handle. 😉
Anyway, I had a coupon for 2 free ounces of yoghurt, so that even further sweetened the deal. When I entered, I was greeted by a very pleasant staff, and directed to the machines and the cups. Interestingly, they didn’t have any sample cups, but she said that I could put one of the spoons under the machine in order to try a couple flavours. I was immediately impressed with the number of fat-free flavours that they had, and while they often change, the staff member assured me that the majority of their offerings are fat-free. I, of course, went for the cheesecake as it is one of my absolute favourites. The machines were a bit over-powered, so the creamy treat came out with significant force (and a bit ended up on my shirt… oh well, some for later). The flavour was very authentic, and the texture was the key selling point for me–it was incredibly creamy with absolutely no grit (which is sometimes a downfall of frozen yoghurt).
The only disappointment to me was the topping selection. I generally like some fruit toppings and something along the lines of graham cracker crumbs or fat-free granola. However, the fruits did not seem very fresh, and the more decadent toppings were things like cereals and candies. I ended up just having the yoghurt without any toppings. Overall, it was very good, and maybe the toppings will change by the next time I visit. I would recommend Graffiti as one of the better premium frozen yoghurt venues in the area, and if you happen to be in the neighbourhood, you should stop in.
