Acai Berry: Berry Good!

As you all know, Sweet Spot always strives to maintain customer satisfaction by taking any requests our customers have (evident from our growing toppings area). Recently, many people started asking for the an Acai Berry yogurt flavor, so we decided to look into it. January 22nd came, and Sweet Spot opened offering its new flavor.

What really is an Acai berry?
The Acai Berry, a yield of the tropical rain forest of Amazon, is said to be the most nutritiously valuable fruit Brazil offers. The health benefits go on and on… Here is an excerpt from http://www.acaiberryjuicepower.com.

“The acai berry is high in anthocyanins that gives the product more health benefits. The acai berry has about two to three times as many antioxidants as grapes and blueberries. By cleansing your body of antioxidants, you slow the aging process and promote healthy cell growth and digestion. These compounds also are proven to prevent and treat cancers of the breast, colon, skin, lung and liver. They also contain anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic and immune stimulating properties. Acai berry increases the body’s resistance to free radicals.”

There are many other claimed benefits of the Acai berry, or “superfood”: a powerful weight loss tool (lose weight while you snooze? yes, please!), aids in the prevention of heart disease by lowering cholesterol blood levels, kills cancer cells, free radicals, injured cells (hallelujah!), and enhances the digesive system to keep away constipation, bloating, acid reflux, etc.

Not only is it a health miracle, it tastes delicious!  We encourage you to make sure to taste the new flavor and take advantage of its benefits!

We Love Bulletin Boards & Mochi Balls!

This week we’ve had not one but two exciting new additions to Sweet Spot!

1. There are two bulletin boards put up and decorated towards the back by the couches; we’ve set up an area not only to display our most loyal customers, but there is also another board dedicated entirely for any Sweet Spot news and and area for you to put up advertisements for your business, community events, or anything you’d like to spread the word about to our customers.

Do you want your photo up? Here’s how: either ask the cashier behind the counter to snap a photo of you (it should be up in about a week) or take the initiative and bring in your own photo of you and your friends enjoying some froyo at Sweet
Spot. We’d be delighted to have your face on our board!

2. We also just got a new topping today! We were getting frequent requests for mochi balls. They’re rice based products and very delicious, especially in yogurt. They’ve become rather popular in larger cities, so we thought we’d introduce Laredo to the wonderfulness that is mochi. Enjoy, everyone!

Rainy days + chilly weather = a good time for a froyo stop! We’ll update soon!

Live Healthy. Live Happy. Eat Yogurt.

09/09/09. It was a Wednesday. The date that would forever remain as the fateful day Sweet Spot Frozen Yogurt would proudly open its doors for the first time.

A business driven by the froyo frenzy, Sweet Spot has become a both healthy and delicious alternative for dessert. Completely self-serve, each cup is customized to fit one’s specific tastes; with eight different flavors and over twenty different toppings, there is always a combination for everyone.

“The weather was warm, very nice — a beautiful day. We opened on a remarkable day.”
