The Michigan Daily - michigandaily.com
Each week, one Ann Arbor staple menu item becomes a battlefield
as Daily Arts staffers butt heads over which restaurant makes it best.
All three Amer's locations (S. State,
Church, Union) provide the chance to ven-
ture a lick at flavors including pomegran-
ate tart, creamy caramel, juicy orange tart,
black cherry tart.and key lime tart. Amer's
also offers a wide range of fruit, all of your
normal chocolate crunchies, sprinkles and
even coconut shavings. But if you want to
cleanse your palate with water that isn't
room temperature, try elsewhere.

Nobody buys the fro-yo at Rod's with-
out gettingthe stuff inside. A mountainous
mass of a dessert spooned into a slightly
ghettoized plastic cup, you can purchase
the Collider in chocolate or vanilla vari-
eties. And the add-ons: candy, fruits and
cereals galore! Cold Stone mix-ins don't
compare to this heavenly mess. April rain
showers might be crummy, but rest assured
- the Rod's Collider will alwaysbe yummy.

Among the plethora of fro-yo vendors
gracing the streets of Ann Arbor, lab is
the only one yet to eschew heavy doses of
sweetener for atart yogurt that's, well, tart.
The natural flavor of lab's dairy-licious des-
sert allows the actual taro, honeydew and
plain yogurt to tingle the tastebuds instead
of the overbearing sugar that's so common
in fro-yo these days. Frozen yogurt con-
noisseurs should look no further.

When the temperature briefly surpassed
60 degrees this week, frozen yogurt finally
seemed like a justifiable treat. YogoBliss's
spin on this classic college treat is disap-
pointing. The only non-self serve fro-yo
establishment on campus, YogoBliss's poli-
cy works against it: You're given too few of
the toppings you want, and more than three
toppings costs you. Plus, the tart fro-yo
itself was too sour. A no-go for this fro-yo.
