What is Menchies ? By this time, the whole world would have known what Menchies is and what’s that they have to provide to the customers. Menchies was started in 2007 in Los Angeles. Simply put, Menchies serves Frozen Yogurt (Froyo) of different flavors. Its mainly a self-service chain which sells at least a dozen of flavors in each of their outlets. Apart from the FroYos, they also serve toppings to go with it, like variety syrups, powders, sprinklers, cakes and what not and they are sold by weight.
Balewadi High Street has become a trend in Pune serving almost everything, to chug and chow, within the vicinity and its heartening to see Menchies being one among the restos. It was the Grand Launch of Menchies @ BHS on 31st Jan and chugnchow, along with other blogger friends were invited for the covering the launch. Mr Avinash and his wife, the Duo who runs the place, were all cheerful throughout the day.
Apart from the Froyos, the most intriguing feature was the colour combination of the interiors and the light works. The place always looks bright and there are just positive vibes all around the place. The launch witnessed an amazing crowd right from babies, teenagers, dudes and dudettes to parents and grand parents 😉 , all of them equally eager to enjoy their favorite flavors of Froyo.
Team Menchies was well prepared for the launch. They had a good number of staffs to help out the customers, mainly first timers. They have got more than a dozen flavors to choose from and the customer can taste the flavors before zeroing in on what he wants to order. Once decided, the staffs helps us to fill the desired amount in the cup ( the customers can very well go for self service as well). Post which we head on to the toppings counter, which we are sure to go mad about! You name it, they’ve got it. Choco chips, choco powder, nuts, gems, marshmallows, snickers,caramel syrup, dark chocolate syrup, fresh fruits, cheese cakes, choco bars, phew…. the list goes on. They staffs weigh your cup and you just have to pay according to what to take. But trust me, you just can’t stop.
Menchies was kind enough to treat the customers on the first day with starters from Arthur’s Theme. Need I say more on how the day was! Veg Sandwich, Cheese pops with dips, Chilly Mushrooms, Corn Fried Mushrooms, were some of the starters served and everything were just amazing, served fresh and hot.
We tasted almost all the flavors and every one of them were simply amazing. It will completely depend on an individual, to get his right choice of Froyo. I personally went with Chocolate, Cookie & cream and Cake batte, topped with some Cheese cake, Choco chips and Chocolate bars, my day was made !!
When compared to Ice Creams, Frozen Yogurts are definitely a healthier options( and sometimes tastier too). Its without a doubt that chugnchow will keep visiting Menchies for more awesome Froyos.
