    Oh, spoiler alert!! Just kidding, I don’t see myself watching Pocahontas at any time in the near future :)

    You and your Melbourne blogging buddies are going to see me fat(ter) before this year’s out …

  2. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    I love these shops!!! And I most certainly I did not take advantage of them enough when I was in teh States :(

  3. Cara Waters @ GOurmet Chick

    Serve yourself frozen yoghurt sounds like a good idea. Will have to track this place down.

  4. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    I love these yogurt places! I had one yesterday – a peanut butter flavor that I swear tasted JUST like PB. Obviously I topped it with chocolate. Ah-mazing.

    Do you have any idea how much I LOVE that you’re finding these froyo places for me here in Melb? I LOVE froyo. Like LOVE.

    Also Sth Melb market is one of my fave places here in Melb – the v.expensive Vitamix can be bought just across the road from it. I go and stare at it everytime I’m there.

    Also – Pocahontas? Hmmm…not one of my faves. Yes, she was insanely pretty but the plot had much left to be desired. They say that the plot of Avatar was basically a ripoff of Pocahontas as well….just sayin’

    Froyo for lunch, classy! I love how it’s still kind of an asian dessert since you chose the matcha flavor. So right about Pocahontas, it was really all down hill after The Lion King anyway.

    Not sure if I tried frozen yogurt, tried yogurt ice cream but I suppose thats different. Paying by weight seems like an interesting concept, I guess there is the temptation to stick your fingers when no one is watching.

    OMG! That dress is DIVINE!!!!!!! You can see my one-track mind is v different from all your other readers ;)

    Ahhh. I can see why Melbourne captured your heart and soul. No doubt you have your favourite recipes for raspberry and chocolate frozen yoghurts already. A couple I found are at: http://www.makeicecream.com/recformakfro.html (lots of sugar but).

    Anyway, your recipes would be more healthy and scrumptious I’m sure.

    Nope, I can’t defend Pocahontas- it really is racist! Granted, I haven’t seen it in about ten years… but yeah, really. I do love the music though :)

    Juhhhhst around the river bend!

    Pocahontas always bugged me, or maybe it was my mom making snide comments about the lack of realism in the movie, and the sexy native attire, etc.

    Of all the gin joints ! One of my favorite phrases:)

    1. Emma

      Forgot to mention: What a cute widdle sunburn (or slightly red shoulder)!

      It’s way below freezing here. Mildly jealous:)

  12. Lou

    Nah, Pocahontas sucks.

    ooooooooh I used to LOVE frozen yoghurt… boo I want some. That looks like a very fun place to visit, mmmm toppings. Is tart just like plain yoghurt? Melbourne has ALL the fun foodie stuff, doh.

  13. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Tart natural flavour will always win for me, despite the initial excitement that can come from other flavours :)

    I liked Pocahontas when I saw it, but I was too young to do any deconstructing. And I recall the songs and scenery as the highlights, which does suggest the plot may have been lacking!

  14. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    Love the name of that froyo place! I have been guilty of eating froyo throughout the winter months ;) It’s just so addictive

  15. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    OMG self serve frozen yoghurt. That alone is worth the trip to Melbourne. Why oh why are we so frozen yoghurt deprived in Canberra?

    Several of my friends who live in the UK have recently had babies so I thought I would find and send them my favourite Australian children’s book as a baby shower present. The book is ” Marmaduke the Possum” and it is gorgeous but on a re-read I did become rather alarmed at the level of racism. Funny isn’t it when you suddenly realise something like that. Must say I haven’t seen Pocahontas and your review isn’t inspiring me. Bring on classic Disney I say.

    Story in a cup frozen yoghurt sounds excellent – imagine what kids would choose – oh wait that is just like what Hannah would choose :-) We have just been eating ice cream at home so I felt quite in synch with your post. By the way what is tart natural flavour – does it taste of tart?

    I am not in synch with movies and wondered if you saw poncahontas in the cinema until you said you were belting out the songs – never seen it myself but am sure it is less comfortable to watch as an adult

    Waiting just around the riverbend!!!!! Just around the riverbend!!! Poca-demort is scary Angle Babe. I don’t like her at all. How does she breath????

  18. Fatbooo

    That was certainly an almighty coincidence indeed, but for the record, i did NOT shriek. :D

  19. Catherine

    Very frosty over here so the idea of frozen yoghurt is just too… chilly.

    Nah, I can’t defend Pocahontas for you. My kids disregarded that film totally and ran around calling each other Running Nose and Skinned Knee and Farting Bear if I remember…

  20. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    haha years ago I got into lots of trouble at a Melbourne place once that had sandwiches by the weight. I ended up with a really expensive sandwich. Thankfully the woman felt sorry for me and let me have a discount. Ahh what I would do with those toppings! :P

    You should’ve seen the look my face made when you mentioned buying Enid Blyton books. No really, you should’ve, because I couldn’t see it, could I? It was happening on my face! But I felt everything – cheeks, eyebrows, forehead, eyelids – move upwards very fast. And I’m sure it was funny (try it!)

    Am indeed pro-fro-yo! This place sounds AMAZING. AMAAAAZING.

    1. Emma

      Pro-fro-yo, pro-mo-ro, what a day for you and your abbrevs! ;)

  22. whisperinggums

    Wish I was there to hear you and I-Hua deconstructing Disney … but, you know, hakuna matata, I’m glad you had a good time and look forward to more Disney, oops Melbourne posts.

  23. Kath Lockett

    Smacks back of hand against forehead: I knew this day would finally come, Hannah!

    …. I don’t like frozen yoghurt.

    ….. or Pocahontas.

    Can you forgive me?

  24. Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco

    Yes. I am a frozen yougust nut(case). Hey, at least it’s healthy, right? ;)

  25. juniakk

    i love froyo! if only i could still eat all that sugar still. you so lucky eating delicious sugar treats for meals and wearing pretty summer dresses even in january! its freezing in nj now. brrrr….

  26. ASHLEA

    These types of serve yourself yogurt places have popped everywhere in my city. Love them!!!!

  27. Louise

    I love frozen yoghurt too, and have only been to a few of these places (they don’t exist out here in the country). I remain to be convinced of the edible nature of green tea, but totally agree with the raspberry selection. Never seen Pocahontas blessedly, and will not race at it. What Blytons did you buy?

  28. Chopinand @ ChopinandMysaucepan

    Dear Hannah,

    Looks like it’s all fun and frolic with I-Hua around Melbourne. I read all of Enid Blyton’s Secret Seven and Famous Five when I was a kid. Truly captivating not to mention keeping me out of mischief.

    Definitely not a frozen yoghurt fan nor have I watched Pocahontas.

  29. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Ha I remember you leaving a jealous comment on my blog when I posted about this place. ;) P.S. I never got to try the pomegranate flavour, how was that?

  30. penny aka jeroxie

    Nice little spot! Glad you enjoyed Melbourne… I miss it :(

  31. Rach

    I love frozen yogurt!! And I love Pocahontas. It is amazing how much more you notice about the Disney movies as you age that you would’ve never picked up on as a kiddo. :)

  32. Priyanka

    I love frozen yogurt but don’t have them that often. I know I am weird! I mean I should en-cash this time in my life where my doctor gives me a free pass to consume all i can eat ice creams and fro-yos right!
