“Really, really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

If you like frozen yogurt, this is the place for you. The atmosphere is young and friendly, and there's usually a crowd. But the line moves fast. You get your own yogurt from the machines, choose some of the 18 or so flavors and put it in your little cup, add your toppings, and pay by the ounce. Then try to find a seat or join the crowd outside. They had red velvet cake flavor the first time I went, and that's still my favorite. Did you know that FROG stands for "Fully Rely On God"? But whatever their religious views might be, it doesn't seem to prevent them from serving really good frozen yogurt in a clean, well-lit, fun environment. Enjoy!

“Great and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We LOVE Sweet Frogs! We go to everyone we run into and the selections are vass. Toppings are fresh and the kids love to top there own. Paying by the ounce can be pricey so be careful. Pink and Green decor is cheery and the "Frog" message is good. Pickup a tee shirt and take it around the country and put your pics on facebook or email them to the shops.

“Overpriced Frozen Yogurt”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Although the frozen yogurt tasted all right and the self serve and toppings is fun. THe shock of the price when they weigh it is crazy. Almost $5 for a little cup of yogurt?? Atmosphere is nice a little too crowded on weekends. It adds up for a large family.

“So glad we tried it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Pros: Great flavors (chocolate, vanilla, cookies and cream, cheesecake, island banana, mango, strawberry and cotton candy to name a few), huge selection of toppings from fresh cut fruit to candy, nuts, hot fudge, whipped cream, cake, brownies and more! The place is well stocked and clean even when busy. If there is a line it moves quickly. The staff is very nice and happy to answer any questions. The price is 42 cents an ounce which is reasonable for the quality of the yogurt and toppings. You fill it yourself so you can have as little or as much as you would like.

Cons: We don't have one in CT. We have something similar but the quality is not the same.

Sweet Frog is the best!!

“Eat as much or as little”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

We've been to Sweet Frog a few times and it's always great. Do be prepared to wait in line during the summer months, it is busy. They have a vast array of flavors (my fav is ...all of them) and the toppings bar is huge. Name the topping and they have it (my fav is...all of them :).
One thing to keep in mind is that the ice cream may not weight as much but the topping can topple over your wallet! Once you start adding toppings, the weight goes up considerably and since you pay by the ounce, you do the math. At the end, it's all worth it!!

We love this place!!
