Because I’m usually a total grump about summer, I made a Somewhat-Big List of Summer Fun to remind myself to continue to seek out good times, even when I feel like I’m, well, melting. You can check out the full list here.

There are some activities that are so easy, so totally accessible, that you always tell yourself you can do them some other time. For me, going to Culture was one of those things. I’ve been wanting to go there for a good long while, but I’d just never gotten around to it. This weekend, with the help of the Somewhat-Big List of Summer Fun, it finally happened.
I was extremely excited to visit Culture. I’d already heard about their key lime topping, and I was planning on tasting it before I even left the house. Culture has both regular yogurt and frozen yogurt available (I’m tempted to say on tap, but that’s kind of weird, so I won’t), and they offer different flavors every day. The yogurt is made in-house from New York State milk. They then have lots and lots of uber-tasty toppings to mix and match. They also have yogurt, frozen yogurt, and cookie-yogurt sandwiches that you can take home with you.
Mary had Original (plain) frozen yogurt with a topping of raspberry sauce, white chocolate shavings, and chocolate cookie crumbs. I had Original, too, with a delectable key lime custard and a shower of graham cracker crumbs. Oh good gracious it was yummy. Better, even, than I’d expected.
A note on portion size: Mary and I both got a medium, assuming that the portions would be small, as they are at most “specialty” ice cream places in New York. We both agreed that we would definitely get small (or maybe share a small?) next time. The medium was super big.
Next time, even though I was a little bit in love with that key lime deliciousness, I’ve promised myself I’ll try a different flavor of yogurt. They post their daily flavors on Twitter. Who knows what they’ll have on my next visit, but there’ve been rumors of pistachio, apricot, and even Nutella. Mmm.
