"Somebody should open up a frozen yogurt shop" - how many times have you heard a local say this? Since the last TCBY closed at James Center a few years back, I don't think there has been a frozen yogurt shop anywhere in the Tacoma metropolitan area. Until this week, that is.
Gibsons, an independent, locally-owned shop on Tacoma Ave (a few doors down from Tully's) offers self-service frozen goodies with no shortage of delicious toppings. On two visits this this week (one for each kid, and two for mom :) we chose from a broad selection of froyo flavors, topped off with fruit, whipped cream and hot caramel sauce. At $.42 an ounce, our frozen yogurt sundays added up to about $3.50 each, although we could have easily gone a little crazy adding heavier toppings if we weren't careful.
I heard no complaints from either kid, but then again I was busy eating. ;)
Gibsons is keeping it simple, other than frozen yogurt they offer drip coffee and bottled drinks.
