Yogurt in Love serves up icy treats at mall

Jul. 18, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

BARBOURSVILLE -- People seeking to escape the heat wave may want to pay a visit to the Huntington Mall. A new frozen yogurt shop opened Friday, July 12.

Named Yogurt in Love, the self serve shop is part of a small chain based out of Myrtle Beach, S.C.

"We decided to start our own business and we did some research," said Rachel Kingery, who is co-owner of the shop with her husband Shayne Kingery, sister-in-law Christina Kingery and brother-in-law Kirby. "We liked the concept a lot and the yogurt. Our yogurt uses a liquid base rather than a packaged powder to start from. I think it gives us a better tasting product. There was a purse store called 'OMG' in this space before we came in and we've working on the store for almost a year now. We redid almost the whole store."

The shop features a variety of frozen yogurt flavors such as Dark Chocolate, Salted Caramel Pretzel, Peanut Butter, and Java Chip. There is also a mix of lowfat flavors, nonfat flavors, no-sugar added flavors and non-dairy sorbet. Customers can top their yogurt with fresh fruit, cereal, nuts, or candy such as Popping Boba, which is filled with juice. The Boba candy is available in blueberry, green apple, mango and strawberry flavors.

"We are going to change the flavors every two weeks," said Christina Kingery. "We are carrying two flavors of Greek yogurt right now. Greek yogurt is made with more milk and has a stronger yogurt taste. I'm a Greek yogurt fan now. We are also going to do seasonal flavors throughout the year. My favorite flavors are a peanut butter and chocolate swirl. They taste like a cold Reese's Cup."

Yogurt in Love is located the Huntington Mall adjacent to the food court. It is open standard mall hours which are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. Cash and all major credit/debit cards are accepted. For more information, call 304-736-5683.
