Get Your Greek On… (Part Deux)

Ask nicely (or at least incessantly) and they shall come… A few weeks ago, I wrote about [my excitement over] the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Truck which would be crisscrossing the streets of the District, giving away free scoop of their latest offerings: 3 new Greek frozen yogurt flavours. Washingtonians were encouraged to follow the truck on twitter and request that it make a stop at their office. My awesome colleagues tweeted away and within 10 days, this was the scene outside of our headquarters:

While I was thrilled to get a visit from the Ben & Jerry’s truck, I was sad to see that the Strawberry Shortcake flavour I had been looking forward to the most, was not on the menu 😦 Apparently, it’s only available by the pint but my local Safeway carries it so I was able to try it (on the downside, my grocery  does not carry Schweddy Balls anymore…)
Greek yogurt has a thicker, creamier texture than regular yogurt, as well as more protein but fewer calories. While I personally really liked the two flavours I tried (strawberry shortcake and vanilla blueberry graham) they may not be a great option if you don’t want a “chubby hubby” as Ben and Jerry’s new “healthier” offering is still a rather indulgent dessert… Nonetheless, get ready to get your Greek on Miami! The scoop truck is heading your way next! And D.C. peeps, you have until the 11th to request a stop… so get tweeting 😉
