My Other Savior
I have been wanting to add a post about my new favorite place. Sweet CeCes is Nashville's answer to frozen yogurt and I am their biggest fan, although I am pretty sure my friend Rebecca might claim that title as well. (Thanks for the pic!)
Sweet CeCes has two locations, one in Nashville and the other in Franklin. The store is painted in the most perfect shade of bright pink with lime green and blue thrown in giving it a very girly atmosphere. There is a wall, I kid you not, of frozen yogurt machines. All you do is grab one of the above cups and choose whatever of the ever changing and tantalizing eight flavors. Recent flavors included chocolate kiss, peanut butter and snickerdoodle. But the thing that I love most is their original tart.
You see, on a trip to Dallas, I had the chance to try Orange Cup, which is a tart frozen yogurt that you pile fruit on... instant love. I imagine this is just like Pinkberry, which I still have to try, darn their limited locations. (Except when I logged onto their site, I found out their bringing one to Nashville soon!!) Anyway, I am ecstatic that I have a place to go to to get my fix! I usually get the tart and pile on kiwi, blueberries or strawberries. Their wall of yogurt is self-serve, meaning YOU get to decide how much YOU want. I'm not going to pretend that I haven't thought of contorting my body to stick my head under the machine and dispense the ice cream directly into my mouth, ala drunk inappropriate guy who gets behind the tap at a bar. Hmm, don't worry, I'll try to restrain myself.
I must also mention that once you measure out however much frozen yogurt you want you then head to the wall of toppings. Anything your heart desires is there, Oreos, Snickers, gummy bears, Captin' Crunch, Fruity Pebbles, chocolate chips, Skittles, sprinkles, cheesecake bites, cake squares, walnuts, marshmallows and the list goes on allowing you to make your perfect sweet treat!
Well, I can see that my love for Sweet CeCes is on the verge of being disturbing, sooooo I would like to conclude by encouraging you to get to this place as soon as possible.
