After school on Thursday, I took Benji clothes and shoe shopping. To overcome his initial resistance, I pretty unashamedly bribed him with the promise of frozen yogurt if he cooperated. One very cooperative shopping trip later, we found ourselves at the Menchie’s in Bothell surveying the available flavors.

I’m going to try to report Benji’s frozen yogurt mix without any obvious bias. He selected toasted marshmallow and cookies & cream frozen yogurt plus a dab of Swedish fish sorbet, topped with gummy worms and Sour Patch Kids.

“Can you guess what my theme is?” he asked. I didn’t say what I was thinking, but instead asked, “What?” “Candy!” he explained. Ah, yes, an excellent way to build a tasty frozen yogurt concoction.

Here’s the first bite:

Candy-themed frozen yogurt

If you’re like me, your initial reaction is: EWWWWWWWWW. Yet he ate about half of it with great gusto before it started melting. Once it melted, he stirred it together and then decided that, um, Mommy? I don’t think I like this so much after all. Ha! No kidding! We tossed the rest and chalked it up to a good learning experience.
