In my opinion, it’s difficult not to like frozen yogurt; and if it’s FroYo’s creamy yogurt it’s practically impossible. The shop offers 14 "revolving" flavors, which means they switch them occasionally to keep it interesting. About 50 different toppings, including fresh local fruit, are available.

This is a hometown success story. Fallbrook FroYo was founded in July 2011 by Sam and Charlotte Durick, of Fallbrook, who decided to open their own shop because they "love yogurt." They are not a franchise.

"This is our own store – it’s the only one," Charlotte noted.

The couple researched the yogurt business… and tasted and tasted and tasted… discovering new flavors and finally deciding on what they thought would work for their own establishment.

"We were connoisseurs of the product," said Sam, "We went to a lot of shops – all across the country."

They made decisions and sought the help of professionals. One of those professionals was Sean Olson of Jim’s Sign Shop, who designed the colorful and appetizing logo, (with the owners’ input). He also helped with the interior design. The color of the walls is not a restrained shade – the green is a bold sorbet-like hue – appetizing and inviting.

Any mention of ambiance wouldn’t be complete without calling attention to the marvelous scent of fresh yogurt. Oh, and if you’re lucky you might catch the aroma of "waffle bowls" cooking, since they cook their own.

Are you ready for a waffle or cup full of yogurt? Here’s how it works: Just grab a cup and fill it with whatever looks good. The weight of the cup determines the price of the yogurt.

FroYo typically offers two tart flavors and two sorbets along with the sweeter-tasting yogurts. All 14 flavors of their yogurt are pro-biotic; and they use only premium frozen yogurt, which is made from low-fat or non-fat milk.

"There is no substitute for quality," Sam commented.

FroYo is literally flowing with honey – Honey Vanilla Greek yogurt, that is. It’s a new flavor that’s very creamy and flavorful.

Another standout flavor is Dreamy Dark Chocolate, a chocolate-lovers dream, made from three different chocolates. Strawberry Sensation is mixed with fresh strawberries. In fact, all of their yogurts that include fruit are made with fresh fruit.

Candy Bar Smash is very sweet tasting and is made with real candy bars, including Snickers and Butterfingers. Cool off on a hot day with one of their sorbets, such as Valencia Orange, which contains fruit pulp and is very refreshing. Cake Batter is a unique flavor and it’s just like eating a piece of cake, but so much better for you.

Some yogurt flavors are machine-mixed, which creates an entirely different taste. For example, the orange yogurt and the vanilla yogurt mix to make yogurt that tastes like an old-fashioned "50-50 Bar."

FroYo is quite active in supporting various athletic teams in Fallbrook. One of those is a local little league team. They not only sponsor them, but reward players with a free yogurt if they hit a "home run." Team members in uniform are given fifty percent off their order – even the opposing team members. Now that’s good sportsmanship!

Find Fallbrook FroYo at 127 East Mission Rd. Contact them by telephone at (760) 728-7678 or visit www.fallbrookfroyo.com. The shop is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

We've been to Fro Yo a couple of times. Each time the staff was very pleasant, the store is very clean and the yogurt was great! We'll be back for more!

I might have to try this place out. That yogurt place on main st is going to be pretty hard to beat though! If this place is not as good. I am going to be highly disappointed.

Both are great places. This town is large enough to support both shops. I just prefer to put on my own toppings as offered at Froyo
