Orange Creamsicle Float

This post was originally meant for Friday, but my excitement has me posting today. I also had a little extra time on my hands since my mom picked up my son for the day.

This is a recipe that I made for my husband, he is a big fan of anything orange. I wanted to make him a drink that resembled an orange creamsicle popsicle (wow, say that 3 times fast!). This drink has a silky texture and is flavored with Oranges, vanilla ice cream, and cream soda…. can you say YUM??

Fill the glasses with cream soda and top each glass with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, garnish with an orange wedge.

Sweet Frog, Burnham, PA Review

DSC01401

SWEET (F) Fully (R) Rely (O) On (G) God

If you are ever in the Lewistown/Burnham, Pa area, stopping in at Sweet Frog is a MUST. This Sweet Frog is family run and new to the area. They offer over 14 different flavors of frozen yogurt, and 21 if you count the middle flavors, which are a twist! And if you think that is crazy, wait till you see the toppings! They have just about anything you could dream up in your head to top your frozen yogurt with.. and I mean ANYTHING! Here are just a few of the 70 toppings they offer- potato chips, gummies, pretzels, lunch cakes, M&M’s, sprinkles; if you are looking for healthier options they have strawberries, blueberries, bananas… I could go on and on and on. And of course no ice cream is complete with out hot fudge and whipped cream, which they also have.

While doing restaurant reviews, which I am new to, there will be a few important details I will be looking for and they are as follows- customer service, taste,  price, cleanliness, and atmosphere. This sweet frog gets an A+ in all mentioned.

Matt (one of the owners @ Sweet Frog, Burnham, PA) was very friendly and easy to talk with. He seems to have a great connection with his customers.

As for the taste, well… YUM! I actually get cravings for this place, but who doesn’t?

Pricing is fair; you pay by the weight of your yogurt after all the toppings of course.. I think it was something like 42 cents per oz. I know I fill mine up pretty good and it is usually right between $3 and $4 dollars.

This Sweet frog was very clean. If there is one thing that I can not stand it is when you go to a nice restaurant and the bathrooms are filthy. But this was not the case at this Sweet Frog. These bathrooms were spotless! They were so clean that my three year old commented about how clean they were and he also said they smelled good too! And he is a pretty tough critic 😉

And as for the atmosphere, just pulling in the parking lot and seeing the Sweet Frog car makes me giggle. As soon as you walk into Sweet Frog and see the cheery colors, friendly workers, and get blasted with a big whiff of the frozen yogurt smells, you will be smiling too! =)

Sauce station:

Right before you check out, there is a station with hot fudge, caramel, strawberry sauce, peanut butter sauce, and more I can’t think of. One thing that I did not care for was that the whipped cream was not easy to find. It is in a can in the middle of the topping bar and I personally think it should be at the end with the sauce’s. Isn’t that the last thing you usually put on your ice cream, other than a cherry?

PARTY ROOM-

DSC01382

Sweet Frog Burnham Pa, also offers a pretty cute party room. This party room seats 25-27 people comfortably. And although it is called a party room, it does not necessarily have to be used as such. It can be used for life groups, bridal showers, book club meetings, business meetings, etc. When I was in a week before doing the review, I talked with Mark (Matt’s father/owner) and he told me that one night he saw some high school aged kids in the party room with laptops. He asked them what it was that they were doing, and they said studying, so he asked them if they would like for him to shut the door to the party room so they had some quiet and of course they agreed.. how cool is that?

Here are some details on the party room:

  • Price- $10 per child
  • Required – $50 deposit
  • Minimum 10 children (or pay a minimum of 10 children)
  • Party will last for 1 hr and 30 mins.

Sweet Frog has a frozen yogurt for everyone!  Whether you have allergies, are gluten intolerant, or just simply want live a healthy lifestyle, you should have no problem finding a yogurt at Sweet Frog. Most the yogurts at Sweet Frog only have around 3% fat in them, unless of course, you go for the Gelato, which has a richer flavor, that has anywhere from 3-5% fat… still pretty good!  All yogurts have information labels on them that say if they contain gluten and also list there allergens.

Here is a list of what they offer for those who have special food requirements:

  • non-dairy
  • no sugar added
  • low fat
  • non-fat
  • gluten free options
  • list of allergens on each yogurt
