My First Trip to Feeney's = Success

So one of my besties has been raving about Feeney's Frozen Yogurt Bar all summer long.  I kept planning to go to it when I was in my hometown but it just never worked out.  Since I knew I was going to be in town on Saturday we made plans to have a double date there.  This time I was finally going to get to try Feeney's.  I love ice cream which translates to loving low fat frozen yogurt when I'm eating healthy.

The thing that makes Feeney's different from other yogurt places is that is you serve yourself; picking from 6 different yogurt flavors, and tons of toppings, then you pay by the weight.  It was a little overwhelming and hard not to put every delicious topping on mine but I knew moderation was key.  I had been pre-warned by JMJE that going overboard could result in a stomach ache (and also using way too many WW points).

My frozen yogurt creation contained low fat chocolate yogurt, a little bit of cake batter low fat yogurt (delicious by the way), graham crackers, strawberries, and a few chocolate chips.  I think I showed good self control. I mean the pretzel m&ms, hot fudge sauce, and marshmallow toppings all looked delicious but I held myself back.  I didn't want a stomach ache nor did I want to break the bank with WW points. Overall my trip was a success and it's probably a good thing that Feeney's is an hour away.  Thanks JMJE and B for taking Matt and I to our debut trip to Feeney's.

*Update - I have been informed by JMJE that there are actually 8 flavors at Feeney's to pick from not 6. Sorry Feeney's I should have consulted with your best customer before posting. :)


  1. I don't think I did as well on my topping selection. Although I did have some bananas under the fudge and peanut butter. However, I did eat a salad for dinner. I assume that makes it all ok.

  2. Leave it to me to stick to plain ol' vanilla. I at least mixed it up with M&Ms plus Reese's Pieces plus peanut butter cups. It definitely lived up to the hype!

  3. wish i could have gone.... i will go next time for sure. yummm......

  4. Sounds like a perfect double date - I enjoyed all the postings. And I love cake batter fro yo! (and I guess cake batter in general.) one day I too will try feeny's!
