With a wide variety of flavors offerings, and trendy, modern shops, frozen yogurt has been growing in popularity in recent years. Many froyo shops have opened in and around the Princeton district. To help expose Princeton students to all the options they have nearby, Odin’s Word is starting a series of reviews of frozen yogurt. We start with Bad Frog in West Chester

It’s starting to get cold outside and soon some ice cream places will be closing for the winter, so frozen yogurt would be a great alternative to ice cream. Frozen yogurt can be healthy, and can come in as many flavors as ice cream. There are several frozen yogurt place around the Tri-State area.
The Bad Frog is one of my new favorite frozen yogurt places. It has multiple healthy options, and their frozen yogurt is made with real cream instead of a powder, which is used at other froyo places.
Bad Frog Frozen Yogurt has many different varieties of froyo and also offer nonfat yogurt, greek, low fat, and no sugar added yogurt. They will also try to accommodate to people with nut, eggs, soy, milk, and wheat allergies (just be aware that they are a facility that processes those things.)
The restaurant got its name out of a story from when the owners went to a heavily populated frog area. They were sitting down and having frozen yogurt and a frog jumped into their yogurt, thus the name Bad Frog.
They have the same flavor as other froyo places but they also have more unique flavors such as: Maple Bacon Doughnut, Cranberry Hibiscus, Praline and Ginger Lemonade.
I had a Pumpkin/Cheesecake swirl, and Chocolate. It tasted very fresh and you could taste the real cream. The yogurt was creamier than most places.
I went crazy on toppings, I put cookie dough, Reese’s peanut butter cups and white chocolate chips on my froyo. They offer a huge variety of toppings. They had squirt bottles with raspberry and other puree flavors. They also had warm sauces to put on top such as Butterscotch, Peanut Butter, Caramel, and Hot Fudge.
One thing that I don’t see at other froyo places is that they actually have a refrigerator that holds all their old flavor when they are no longer being served.
The price is reasonable at $0.46 an ounce. This is probably the cheapest froyo I’ve seen. For the coupon savvy people, they sometimes offer Groupons.
The atmosphere of the shop is very relaxed, but very fun and colorful. It is a little shop, but it gives the feeling of having a lot of room.
I went to the Tylersville location on Cox Rd in West Chester. It was right next to Smashburger, and across the road from Voice of America Shopping Centers. It was somewhat hard to find but if you look around you will see the sign with a blue and yellow frog on it.
