Lavender FroYo!: Cool Harry's Yogurt
I know it's getting cold and everyone is forgetting how good frozen confections once were, but one of Portland's food carts continues to peddle one of my favorite icy delicacies: frozen yogurt. Like most food carts with revolving daily or weekly menus, the best way to keep up with them is on twitter. And that's exactly how I've been keeping up with Cool Harry. We tweet, ahem, well I tweet to them and they never respond, but it doesn't get me down. I still knock on their cart-door, announcing my loyal twitter follower-ship, and attempt to pronounce their secret codeword of the day (Do you know what ERINACEOUS means?) and score a free topping. It's fun!
When I heard lavender was offered, and as a lover of edible flowering plants, I had to pay ol Harry (who by the way, is a recent USC grad) a visit. Although I've been to Cool Harry's a few times before (without being a responsible blogger) this time I did not forget my Canon S90. After all, lavender is the most interesting flavor of frozen yogurt I've ever eaten. The lavender gave off a gloriously relaxing and floral essence to the tart-cultured yogurt. Refreshing, light and heavenly!
...with a side of advice and/or stories from this guy.
In the past few weeks Cool Harry's has been pumping out interesting flavors including Apple Cider, Pumpkin, and Cinnamon. Warm flavors in frozen yogurt to keep the froyo mojo coming. I'm loving the creative culture these guys are bringing and looking forward to more fun flavors! Pink Berry -wha?
