It is ridiculous that it has taken me so long to write about one of our more recent favorite spots to grab a sweet treat! The TCBY on 9 Mile Road opened up during the summer and the cooler temperatures don’t seem to be keeping people away because every time we go in there, there is a crowd.
This TCBY is a self-serve yogurt shop located in the Target shopping center on 9 Mile Road and University Parkway. When you walk in, employees will help you sample any and all flavors before you make your choice and serve it up in a bowl. There are a number of flavors to choose from on any given day and they range from run of the mill like vanilla and chocolate to more interesting flavors like strawberry kiwi, mountain blackberry and birthday cake.
After you have chosen your desired flavor, you can choose from a number of toppings like fruits, candies, and syrups. When you are all finished, you take it to the cash register to weigh it and you pay by the ounce.
You can take your frozen yogurt to go but my kids love to sit in the fun, brightly-colored chairs and couches.
I knew that we had visited too often when we walked in after several visits and the young employee remembered that my daughter liked pink colored yogurt! She was excited we came in for a visit because they had just gotten in a new yogurt flavor that was colored pink! Little S was thrilled!
TCBY offers a loyalty card and after you collect a certain number of points, you get a few ounces of yogurt for free. Be sure to get one when you go in for the first time and then register it online so that you can collect your points.
Things to Know Before You Go:
- Like other self-serve yogurt bars, be careful as too how much you fill your cup. The cups are large and can be deceiving!
- Though I did see some cones while I was there last time, as far as I know, this TCBY is not participating in Waffle Cone Wednesday.
- You can use your loyalty card before you register it online but you can’t collect your free yogurt points until it has been registered.
